Consider this your Friday afternoon skin fix. Thanks, Gawker!
The site du gossip has links to some steamy pics of Swedish model/actress Victoria Silvstedt. The tall, tan blonde is seen on a hotel balcony, wearing nothing but a white bikini top and a weird expression as she supposedly engages in some, er, manual labor. (Watch out, office viewers!)
What's the local angle? Silvstedt, a former Playboy Playmate of the Year (1997) model, is married to Chris Wragge, former TV sports hunk for KPRC. As our Richard Connelly discovered, the All-American, chiseled-jaw Wragge don't take kindly to his wife being objectified. (So you better burn your copies of her '97 Playboy issue like, yesterday, son.)
He even put this question to Connelly:
"Speak to me as a normal American male -- would you want your wife doing a nude scene?"
Rich didn't have the heart to tell Chris that there ain't no "normal American" males working at the Press.
Anyhoo, here's the main question: Where the hell was Wragge when this was going on? See, this is why we chose print: better work schedules. — Steven Devadanam
