Playboy Model Runs For Political Office

20 years ago Amy Biviano stripped for Playboy's Women of The Ivy League shoot. She was paid $500. She was so popular that Playboy asked her back a few years later and she turned them down. Now, 37, and a wife and a mother, Amy is running for state office in Washington. The 4th district of Spokane Valley. She is the challenger and apparently the incumbent must have been feeling nervous because he decided to release his "discovery" and has called it porn. Topless photos from 20 years ago? Porn? I guess when this guy was in college he was spending time wondering how come his peen would never grow larger than 2 inches.

Amy was dating her husband at the time of the Playboy shoot back in 1995 and he encouraged her to do the shoot. When he was asked about it now, he said, "I'm the luckiest guy. How many guys do you know who married an Ivy League-educated Playboy model who also happens to be the most wonderful person in the world?"

my hurricane (no electric is the key) hints for those that live in apts, condo's, high rises (with no fall back generators).
- make sure you get all laundry done and have simple clothes ready to wear.
- invest in Britta H2O drink cups with individual filters
-bleach and addtl water
-food:keep it simple: bread, peanut butter, crax, Gatorade (no Monster), and if you can afford it,Glucerna Chocolate Hunger Smart or other indiv shakes- fruit that can be peeled (clean it now)- applesauce in indiv containers-non sugary gum and mints. Anything in mini containers that can be eaten directly without refrigeration or heating.
-throw everything you have in the freezer
-take out all your trash now and your neighbor's
-gas up your car and get cash
-flashlights
-know your local wifi hot spots.
Storms that large scare me, I do hope you will all fare well.

Sounds like you're prepared, Agent. Batton down the hatches and good luck to all!

I cannot feel sorry for someone who had their tata's published voluntarily for $500 in a national 'magazine' while at yale.

if there is a backlash about it and she loses votes, so be it. she should have anticipated that when she posed. I'm sure she didn't do it because she needed the measly $500 they paid.

MISCH said...

Ditto she has a cool hubby

EmEyeKay said...

Agreed, @Agent. Cool hubby!

Basil said...

Didn't Scott Brown do a nude layout for Cosmo years ago, and it was never held against him? I hate the double standard that some people seem to have if women do the same thing.

I'd vote for this woman, and hope that her husband runs for office too so I could vote for him.

Sugar said...

I can only dream of being hot enough for Playboy and smart enough to attend Yale. Girl has it going on.

Miz said...

Her husband made me smile, what a wonderful response :)

Don't know her policies, they aren't important in my daily life being like 5000 miles away, but I hope she does well on balls of steel alone :)

I know Amy Biviano and her family; they are good people, and yes, her husband is awesome! She'll make an excellent state rep.
The Playboy thing has been well-known and not a BFD in many local circles for years. It happened nearly 20 years ago, and it is not germane to the race, so why even bring it up?
Her opponent, on the other hand, has a bizarre and recent history of temper tantrums, road rage and borderline stalker behavior. Google "Matt Shea gun spokane" for the deets.
I'd rather have a woman with big boobs represent me than have a big boob with a gun!

Agent: Thanks for the tips! Hope all you northern east coasters stay safe!

hotchacha said...

Is this supposed to be a scandal? Why are naked bodies sooooo terrifying? Oh my god, how dare anyone be outside of their clothes?!!

Try to cope.

Silly Girl said...

Totally agree with whoever said pretty enough for playboy and smart enough for Ivy league!! That's awesome!! Go her!

As for those who say I'm a hypocrite....she said she did the photo shoot, she acknowledged her role, she was public about it, so was her husband. The big thing is that she didn't lie about it and pretend it didn't happen. She made a choice and she's standing by it. Good for her.

I hope she gets elected!

Lola said...

I swear our country is so priggish, yet so obsessed with boobies...people need to get over it. They're boobs, not porn (clearly this guy hasn't seen porn before).

Your last line was classic! You should throw that on a bumper sticker :)

VeeBee said...

Her husband sounds awesome! I just HAD to google this "porn pic" (lol!) and holy hottie! "Yes they're real and they're spectacular!"

All about Eve said...

Thanks, I'm getting really worried :(

All about Eve said...

I wish I could vote for her!

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

The point isn't to feel sorry for her. Saying she should have to live with it is true, but she seems to be living with it just fine.

There's a huge belief that any woman who does anything sexual like posing topless, being in adult films, etc., is disposable. Only there for pleasure, but don't aspire to more. It's slut-shaming. And it's WRONG.

FrenchGirl said...

her husband is cool ! go Amy!

Tuxedo Cat said...

As long as she's honest about what she did, who cares? As long as it's not an unpunished serious crime, what someone did 20 years ago is totally irrelevant....

How many guys do you know who married someone who looks like Quagmire in drag?

Giggity

Lucas said...

Hey - a fellow Spokanite! Amy is going to be great. If I was in her district I would vote for her in a hot minute. She has handled the whole thing with class and has shown she is a person who has had consistent values for a long time.

Glad to know I'm not the only person in town who reads CDaN.

Cherry blossom said...

I think it's a very nice picture, not pornographic at all, barely sexual.

PuggleMommy said...

She showed her breasts 20 years ago, and has freely admitted it. This isn't "dirt". Time for her opponent to move on.

CanadianMiss said...

Go Her!!!

Alicia said...

Spokanite myself! I moved to Portland when I was 8 but we return often. I blame my weirdness on being born there.. It being the home of so many prolific serial criminals and home grown terrorists. I always say its in the water!

Swaysway1 said...

Didn't know so many Spokane people here. :)
I'd vote for her too, if I was in her district.

Here's one more vote for cool, smart, together women who won't apologize for having had LIVES and stuff. Here's another vote against slut-shaming, because no matter how you parse it, "slut" = "woman" sooner or later. This double standard crap has to go.

You go, Amy!

maggiemei said...

Wow, lots of Spokane people here! The Spokane Valley is known for being pretty conservative, but I hope she wins against her opponent, a wife-beating gun freak. I wish I could vote for her, but am not in her district.
