LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi continue to find ways to extend their collective 15 minutes of fame, but fans won’t be seeing either star bare all anytime soon.
Contrary to online rumors, Jake will not be shedding his clothes for an upcoming spread for Playgirl.
“Jake is not doing Playgirl – never considered it, never will,” the reality star’s rep, Janice Lee, told Access Hollywood on Thursday.
However, earlier in the day on Thursday, Daniel Nardicio, the vice president of marketing for Playgirl, told Access that an offer had in fact been made to the former “Bachelor”-turned-“Dancing with the Stars” contestant.
The denial comes one day after his former bride-to-be, Vienna, shot down a report by Star magazine, which quoted her as saying she’d be taking it off for an upcoming Playboy pictorial.
“Really playboy?! Something else I didn’t know about myself. It’s another rumor,” Vienna Tweeted on Wednesday.
A rep for the popular men’s magazine also confirmed the story to be fiction, telling Access Hollywood that ““This is the first we’ve heard of Vienna Girardi appearing on the cover of Playboy,” the rep told Access. “We are not in negotiations with her and have not made her an offer.”
The former couple – who called off their engagement in June — recently reunited to tape an emotional interview, which will air on ABC’s “The Bachelorette” on Monday night.
