Ashley Harkleroad’s Playboy Cover Is Uncovered

We remember last May when we proudly announced that tennis babe Ashley Harkleroad was going to do a photo shoot for Playboy. And now that Ashley’s issue is on the road to newsstands & mailboxes everywhere, the good folks at THE SCORES REPORT provide us with a peek at the cover:

Wow! Susie Feldman naked! Selma Blair Twenty-Questioned! (Hopefully naked!) Ben Stiller interviewed! (Hopefully not naked!)

Oh, and Ashley’s looking mighty fine, too. But before anyone accuses us of making sexist remarks, keep in mind we’re just supporting Ashley’s choice.

From a previous interview:

“I thought about it, and it was something that I did,” Harkleroad said. “I’m proud of my body. I was representing a female athlete’s body.”

We’re very proud of it, too.

Also, Ashley decided to do the Playboy shoot after undergoing emergency surgery to remove a ruptured cyst in her ovaries. Well, if posing naked for a national magazine makes her feel better about herself, then we feel pretty good for her, too.
