Hugh Hefner, the Founder of Playboy Magazine and an empire of the Playboy Lifestyle, has passed away at the age of 91. Women loved or loathed him, men wanted to be him or wanted nothing to do with him. Either way, guaranteed, you have a personal story that involves his magazine, TV network or Playmates.
I once had the chance to hang out with Playboy Playmate Jade Nicole (who is Canadian BTW…) professionally for a day and she spoke about Hugh Hefner, her words were kind. What she took away from her limited time with the Icon, was that he was a man who wanted to empower women to be themselves. I know not every woman will want to find empowerment in this fashion but it will work for some. And, that can’t be a bad thing.
I know not everyone felt that Hugh Hefner was a good guy. He’s been called a lot of names over the years like pornographer, a misogynist, and just plain creepy. He was also a genius, a media mogul, and the luckiest S.O.B. on the planet. ~Bill
