Hugh Hefner Makes Lindsay Lohan 'Playboy' Issue Sound Worse Than We Imagined

Lindsay Lohan Playboy Hugh HefnerIt will be a Merry Christmas indeed for passengers on the trainwreck that is Lindsay Lohan. Hugh Hefner took to Twitter to confirm the leak of her Playboy photos has pushed up the release date of the issue with LiLo on the cover. Official imagery should be here as soon as December 15! That's five whole days to prepare ourselves for utter disappointment!

Hey, I'm not the only one saying it folks. I'm putting the onus for this one right on Hef's shoulders.


With the debate raging over whether the leaked cover of Lohan sans clothing and covered with a Playboy logo, Hef seems to be doing a whole lot of damage control. Oh yeah, he sounds positive, but you only get so much gushing from a man who spends his day in his bathrobe before it starts to sound like someone is totally blowing smoke up our rear ends. Just get a load of this Tweet:

The Lindsay Lohan issue of Playboy is going to be a true Collector's Edition.

Cough. Sputter. Cough. Collector's Edition? COLLECTOR'S edition? Did someone slip something into the man's Geritol? He's got to be joking. Said to be based on the famous shots of Marilyn Monroe, it's hard to imagine how anyone would want to keep the Lindsay issue in their porn drawer if they could go for the real thing.

Lindsay is already a coked up has-been at what, 25? Hefner himself is said to have been so disgusted with her first photo shoot that he had to send her back into the studios for retakes. That doesn't exactly scream confidence in his model. The sad thing -- for those of us who adored her in Mean Girls -- is Lindsay is now more Internet joke than legend. And Hef more or less copped to that himself, when he admitted LiLo's getting all the Internet traffic these days, and Playboy's jumping on the trend with the early issue date:

Lindsay Lohan was the top search name on the Internet yesterday. Her issue goes on sale late next week. Hot. Hot. Hot.

Come on, we can read between those lines. Hef knows the wave is only going to last so long, so he's going to milk it for all that it is worth. Check out this belly-buster:

The Lindsey Lohan issue will make the perfect Christmas issue for men in your life--father, son, husband, boyfriend, whoever.

Aha! Now we know why they've moved up the sale date . . . they're trying to get all us "what the heck do I get for so and so" shoppers to waste spend our cash. Fact is, by the time the January/February issue was supposed to hit stands, we all would have finished our holiday shopping . . . and been a little more judicious about spending on "extras." Collector's edition indeed!

Will you be running out to get a copy of Lindsay's spread to throw in a holiday stocking or are you going to wait until the rest of the photos are leaked on the Internet and get 'em for free? Is Hefner pushing this one a little too hard?
