In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Kim said, "I'm sorry I did Playboy. I was uncomfortable," she remembers, though at the time she was excited.
"Go for it," she recalls her mother saying. "They might never ask you again. Our show isn't on the air yet. No one knows who you are. Do it and you'll have these beautiful pictures to look at when you're my age."
Kim was already left red faced after a sex tape of her featuring her ex boyfriend Ray J hit the internet, so she figured why not turn lemons into lemonade? Everyone had already seen her sans clothes.
Ray J made a quick $1 million dollars from the sale of the sex tape, but Kim sued Vivid entertainment for $5 mil so she got the last laugh. Do you think doing Playboy was a bad idea for Kim?
