So we asked Nicole Caldwell, who formerly served as editor-in-chief at Playgirl before its print edition was shuttered, to let us in on the behind the scenes workings at Playgirl today. She will be interviewing Johnston during his shoot today and tomorrow, and the whole package ahem will run online only — and may be up on Playgirl. Nicole Caldwell: My understanding is that a third party brought the concept to one of our photographers, and from there it was just a matter of pitching the shoot to Levi. The decision to shutter Playgirl was a hard one, and came from the upper echelons. My staff — and our immediate superiors — had been making big strides to keep the magazine relevant; with issue release parties, the doing away with guido mimbo types; and increasingly high standards for our writers. The hard work was paying off, with sales numbers on a steady climb.
E-book edition, Open Road Integrated Media Jeremy Acidophilus is not really named after the yogurt culture—he just likes to tell people that he is. Actually, he thought of that line years ago but has never been brave enough to use it on someone—until he meets Lady Henrietta over a dish of green Jell-O in his new favorite coffee shop. A painter of naked men for Playgirl magazine who has taken her name from The Picture of Dorian Gray , Henrietta has the power to make Jeremy do all kinds of things he would not normally do, including disrobe for a stranger. He thinks that he must be falling in love.
