When you’re tweeting selfies of yourself wearing nothing but a black lacy bra, and you’re a some kind of a celebrity, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise when Playboy offers you a job.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to Amanda Bynes.
@amandabynes Seriously, Amanda - we want you to co-host our afternoon show for a day. Please DM your info. ampmdash; Playboy Radio(@PlayboyRadio) June 3, 2013
Playboy Radio reportedly extended an offer to the actress (can we still call her that?) to host her own daily, hour-long show. After a one-week trial, the actress could sign a year-long contract, complete with perks (driver and producer included).
Unfortunately, she turned them down.
Why? Apparently, she’s making an album. “I want to [do the show]. But I can’t because I’m recording an album!” she told TMZ. “I’ll go on their show for an interview when I’m promoting my album.”
No bong, no apartment, no job. Things are not going well for Amanda.
Anne Cohen was the Forward’s deputy digital media editor. When she’s not looking for the secret Jewish history of Voodoo in New Orleans, or making lists about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she writes for The Assimilator. She graduated from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism with an M.S. magazine concentration in 2012.
