Jenny McCarthy to Pose Again for "Playboy"

JB Lacroix/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Jenny McCarthy has agreed to pose for Playboy for one final time, following up on a 2009 comment that she’d love to show off her figure in the magazine before she turns 40.

A rep for Playboy has confirmed to Us that the model and actress will appear on the cover of its July/August edition double issue, which hits newsstands Friday, June 29.  McCarthy, who will hit the big 4-0 on Nov. 1, was Playmate of the Year in 1993.

Last month, McCarthy told Us that her 9-year-old son, Evan made his first visit to the Playboy Mansion for an Easter Bunny Hunt.  She admitted that Evan was lost for “probably 45 minutes” and eventually found him hanging out in the estate’s legendary Grotto.

Fleetwood Mac Feud: Stevie Nicks to Blame?

Greetsia Tent/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Stevie Nicks has said that she’ll go on the road with Fleetwood Mac as soon as she’s finished touring to support her most recent album, In Your Dreams, which came out last year.  However, Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood now despairs of Stevie ever rejoining the group, and tells Playboy magazine, “I don’t believe Fleetwood Mac will ever tour again.”

Fleetwood says that he understands Stevie’s desire to promote her album, but is upset that it’s coming at the expense of what would be an extremely lucrative tour. According to a promoter, Fleetwood, Stevie, Lindsey Buckingham and bass player John McVie could earn 10 million bucks’ apiece if they did an eight-month arena tour.  “It is certainly a blow to all of us financially,” admits the drummer.

Fleetwood tells Playboy that the Mac was supposed to go on the road in 2011, but agreed to delay their tour so Stevie and Lindsey could promote their albums.  But now, Fleetwood thinks Stevie’s gone overboard.  “It comes down to her, and for the first time, I think, even Lindsey has lost his patience,” he says.  “Stevie is really proud of her new album and I get that, but she will not let it go … she’s insistent upon working it until it is incapable of growing further … she has become enthralled and obsessed with her in album in a very nice but very inconvenient way.”

The drummer continues, “She’s working 20 times harder than she would ever have to do with Fleetwood Mac and not making anything close to as much money as she would with us.  But this is what she wants to do, and I respect that.”

While in the past, Fleetwood says, he would’ve “not taken no for an answer,” he claims he’s now ready to accept the fact that his beloved band may not ever see the road again.

“Stevie changed her program and changed her mind, and however willful anyone may be, this is what’s happening, or not happening, rather,” he tells Playboy.  “It’s quite simple.  Stevie changed her mind.  And you know what?  That is our innate privilege as humans.”

You can read the full interview in the new issue of Playboy, on newsstands Friday.

In July, Stevie will team with Rod Stewart for another edition of their Heart & Soul joint tour, which was a big success last summer.

Lindsay Lohan Opens Up to 'Playboy' About Sex, Sexuality

Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan poses in the January/February issue of Playboy in a Marilyn Monroe-themed pictorial that hits newsstands later this week.

In an excerpt from an interview released over the weekend, the 25-year-old tells the magazine, "Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature.  I think Marilyn Monroe once said that.  I certainly agree with her."

Lohan added that she believes in, "knowing yourself and your body because it gives you confidence." She explains, "It's a very male-dominated world to begin with, so knowing yourself and being comfortable with your body is an important thing for me as a woman."

The Mean Girls star also talks about her various legal problems in the new issue.

She notes, "Looking back, I probably would have listened to and taken more advice from the people whom I admire and would have followed through with it more."   But she adds that, "you only live once, and you have to learn from your mistakes, live your dreams and be accountable."

The release of the Lohan issue was bumped up after some of her photos leaked online. Hugh Hefner tweeted Saturday that the issue will hit newsstands at the end of this week.

He also wrote, "Due to high demand, the Playboy issue with Lindsay Lohan’s pictorial is now available on iPlayboy....The Lindsey [sic] Lohan issue will make the perfect Christmas issue for men in your life -- father, son, husband, boyfriend, whoever."

Lindsay Lohan 'Playboy' Cover Leaks on Internet

Toby Canham/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The cover for the upcoming issue of Playboy magazine featuring Lindsay Lohan’s buzzed-about pictorial has leaked on the Internet a week before it was set to be unveiled on TV.

The January/February issue’s cover features Lohan in the nude, strategically straddling a chair shaped like Playboy’s iconic bunny logo to cover her private parts.  In the cover image that was leaked Wednesday, Lohan channels Marilyn Monroe, with platinum blond hair and crimson red lipstick.  The cover text simply reads: LINDSAY.

The leaked cover of the gentleman’s magazine comes a full week before Lohan is scheduled to reveal a sneak preview of the cover and pictorial on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Dec. 15.

“The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay,” Lohan’s publicist Steve Honig said in a recent statement.

Lohan was reportedly paid $1 million for the shoot.

Her Playboy cover comes after a tumultuous year for the Mean Girls actress, who spent four hours in jail in early November for probation violation stemming from a shoplifting conviction.

The Mean Girls star took part in a photo shoot for Playboy before she entered jail earlier this week for a brief stay.

Playboy head honcho Hugh Hefner spoke to The Insider about Lohan's shoot.  He said she will pay tribute to Marilyn Monroe in the photo spread.

"It's a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which was the original playmate in the very first issue of Playboy," Hefner explains.

But the big question is whether Lohan will be fully nude in the magazine.

Hefner confirms, "Oh yes.  And classy, very classy."
