Cooper Hefner is speaking out in a BIG way!
In a recent interview AND personal essay, Hugh Hefner's son explained why he's very against Playboy's decision to re-brand themselves as a non-nude magazine. Let's just say Coop is NOT happy with the transition and he eloquently laid out his myriad of reasons why!
Speaking on his disagreement with current Playboy CEO Scott Flanders, the 24-year-old explained:
"I've taken a massive step back with Playboy. Just due to that fact that I do not agree with the decisions and direction the company is actually going in. I was essentially asked to no longer participate in the board meetings because I didn't agree with his vision for the company. You either sort of take a step back and say, ‘Ok, I'm going to let this happen' or you try and do something about it."
Well, it sounds like things are quite tense at the mansion right about now! Maybe it was the best decision for Mr. Hefner to take a step back.
On his new media venture HOP, the young businessman elaborated on the situation, saying:
"My unwillingness to get on board with decisions like taking the company non-nude, selling the Mansion, and a laundry list of other brand initiatives, has rendered my relationship with Playboy's current CEO non-existent. Although there is nothing that I would want more than to work with a talented team and re-introduce the brand to my generation, I've made a commitment to myself to not work with leadership that puts their self-interest over the best interest of the brand. If I had the ability to prevent what current management is doing, I would have done so, but sleepless nights and a lot of thinking has brought me to the conclusion that the best option is to step back for the time being and allow things to unfold. I continue to have confidence that one day, as Disney and Apple did, Playboy will have its moment to appropriately reinvent itself. And when that comes, and current leadership has been moved out, I will happily walk back in to our offices and execute these blueprints for a better brand future."
Wow! Will mini-Hef be the next Steve Jobs?!

It sounds like Cooper has some great plans! Especially the part about engaging with the LGBT community…
So, do YOU agree with Hefner's vision?

Sorry, Holly Madison — it's Hef's turn to tell his story!
Hugh Hefner has led an incredible life, which will be told in an upcoming miniseries American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story!
The project will tell the tale of the Playboy founder's life and company — from his days as an Editor In Chief from 1953 to today!
The production will have full access to Hefner's video and photo archives as well as the Playboy library — which holds over six decades of magazines and unpublished material!
American Playboy will use a "hybrid" docudrama narrative style, telling the story of the 89-year-old's personal life as well as the progression of the country he wanted to evolve!
Hef is nothing but excited for the upcoming docu-series, saying it will serve as a reminder for how far we've come as a society! He recalled:
Say it ain't so, Hef!
The six-acre estate, in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles, is nearly 90 years old, but reports are that it's still in good condition — and we're sure it's going to attract some interest from buyers!
According to reports, the owner — Playboy Enterprises — believes it to be worth
Looks like this reality TV star perfected her side eye as a kid!
The 30-year-old decided to celebrate Throwback Thursday on Twitter with a pretty HIGHlarious shot (above) of her as a kid!
She captioned it:
"#ThrowbackThursday when I got that @4everBrandy tape. Btw this is how I look every morning. 😂😂"
Oh how times have changed!
Guess things happen when you get to be one of Hugh Hefner's closest girlfriends!
Think you've figured out who this blonde bombshell is???
Bill Cosby may be getting some good news, despite recently being slapped with an arrest warrant!
As we previously reported, the TV icon was officially charged with one count of aggravated indecent assault for an alleged incident back in 2004. Yikes!
Though the comedian is about to be very wrapped up in his criminal case, he may no longer be tied up in the lawsuit brought about by Chloe Goins. In case you forgot, the Playboy model also accused Cosby of allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting her at Hugh Hefner's mansion in 2008.
Unfortunately, it appears that there has been no activity regarding her suit against the funnyman. Not to mention, the 78-year-old was reportedly never
