playboy cover 2007 kim kardashianKim Kardashian must feel like a kid in a candy shop. Not only does she have an adorable baby girl with an enviable wardrobe and a 15-carat rock from new fiance Kanye West, but now, it sounds like she's thisclose to having another wish granted: She's most likely in talks to pose for Playboy again. Unofficially, of course, however, Hugh Hefner himself tweeted (and then deleted): "@KimKardashian is looking to make it back onto the cover of Playboy, very exciting."

Not that surprising. Buzz about Kim stripping down for Playboy post-baby has been circulating since she was carrying little North. And I completely understand why!

Kim had to endure despicable, vile fat-shaming from the minute she went public with her pregnancy. It's no wonder she declared while pregnant that she was itching to do another nude shoot once she had given birth. The convo she had with Kourtney and Khloe actually aired on a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians:

As soon as I pop this thing out -- as soon as I get in shape -- the first thing I want to do is Playboy or some nude shoot. I just wanna walk down the street fully naked. I’m gonna be the sexy hot mom. ... I just wanna come out to the world, like, naked and be, like, 'I look so hot. I'm back. You all called me a whale, Shamu, a cow ...'

Seriously, given all the garbage the tabloids ran about her for MONTHS, I can't help but cheer her on. Although there is something wrong with feeling pressured to get in shape so fast -- so fast that you're potentially resorting to unrealistic, unhealthy measures -- there's nothing wrong with taking care of yourself and prioritizing your fitness, so you can feel good about yourself. Why shouldn't Kim get to be a "sexy, hot mom"? And if posing in Playboy will help her make peace with the twisted, sickening hate that was spewed her way, more power to 'er!

How do you feel about Kim striving to be a "sexy, hot mom" who poses in Playboy?
