Ali Wentworth's outrageous sense of humor probably helped her snag ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, but it didn't always suit her mother.
Although her mother, whom she calls Muffie, wanted her to "work on the Hill for a senator," Ali decided to pursue her comedy dreams anyway. During a recent interview to promote her book Ali In Wonderland, the former In Living Color actress recalled one decision her mother would absolutely NOT approve of — posing for Playboy!
She described the moment she told her mother about the offer, saying:
"I remember when I was on 'Living Color' they were doing a funny women's issue of Playboy and they called me and said, 'we are offering you $100,000 to pose for Playboy'. And I went, 'let me call my mom.' Now, I know what I look like naked and it's not going to sell any magazines, so I wasn't going to do that but I loved calling my mother. There was a long pause and she went, 'I will pay you $100,001 not to'."
We don't think any parent is very comfortable with their child posing naked no matter how old they are, so it's completely understandable. Ha!
Would U ever condone a family member stripping down for Playboy?
