Kate Gosselin Turns Down $400,000 Playboy Offer

Report says image issues were not the reason

According to the latest print issue of Star magazine, Kate Gosselin might be considered the perfect playmate by her eight children, but they’re not alone in thinking that. The mag claims that none other than Hugh Hefner himself has reached out to the television personality, offering her $400,000 for a spread in his popular men’s magazine, an offer she turned down – story via here.

Kate, it seems, was horrified at the idea that she might do the spread (which could have been as tasteful or, on the contrary, as revealing as she would have wanted) and have her children see it, that she immediately refused Hefner’s more-than-generous offer. Moreover, an unnamed tipster says for the US tab, the refusal had absolutely nothing to do with Kate’s body and the way she saw herself, since she had more than plenty of confidence in her looks, especially given that she gave birth to eight children.

“Hugh sent her a letter, but Kate was totally mortified and threw it away! She didn’t think it was appropriate because of the children. She’s proud of the way she looks.” the insider reveals for Star magazine. If so, this would not be the first time that Kate makes a decision with the welfare of the children in mind, like she revealed just recently while on CNN’s Larry King. She also refuses to date because she doesn’t think it would be in the kids’ best interest at this time.

“I’m not really worried about it. I’m lonely but I’m very busy. Actually, I’m alright.” Kate said of dating and her current (inexistent) love life. “I can honestly say that there is so much on my plate now, that I absolutely cannot react that way to every little thing that comes by – or big thing. I’m looking more toward the future and the decisions of today that affect tomorrow, more so than [Jon] is.” she added, taking a very subtle swing at her soon to be former husband, who has already moved from their failed marriage with much younger Hailey Glassman.

Jon, on the other hand, is not really thinking of what may eventually come to harm the children, some believe. In his first official interview since the divorce announcement, Mr. Gosselin revealed details of his life with Kate that he should have kept under wraps, it is being said, by claiming he took on a lot of abuse and was constantly put down while married to Kate.
