Athletes and WAGs to Get the Playboy Cover
At 39 years young, Jenny McCarthy, Brian Urlacher's new supermodel girlfriend, will grace the cover of Playboy for her sixth time. This time, she decided to go commando with only knee-high stockings. Which, in my expert opinion, is her sexiest cover ever.
In the past 15 years, several athletes and WAGs have become Playboy cover models along with McCarthy. They range from Olympic athletes to Kim Kardashian.
I am still not really sure why Kim Kardashian would want to do anything just for the publicity. That doesn't sound like her.
To keep things simple, I have instituted two rules.
First off, no wrestling. If I included them, this list would be forty-five pages long. And secondly, this list will only go back for the past 15 years. So before you send the hate mail, keep note of these two rules.
That being said, enjoy the 25 Athletes and WAGs to Get the Playboy Cover.

Although you might not realize it, Lisa Guerrero is four years older than her husband Scott Erickson. Some might consider her a cougar, but I just call her hot.
20. Heather Kozar: June1999
I was never a fan of Tim Couch. I also had no idea this was his wife.
Not too shabby Tim.

Marilyn Monroe was on the cover of Playboy's first ever sold-out issue.
The second? Katarina Witt.

Ashley Harkleroad's tennis career never truly hit the level she had hoped for.
Instead, her popularity did and she became the first professional female tennis player to earn a spot on the cover of Playboy.

Kendra is one of the most popular Playboy cover models of all time.
She has been on the cover five times in the past seven years and is married to former NFL player Hank Baskett.

If Karina Smirnoff wanted things to work out with Brad Penny, they would have because every man knows that he would never break up with a dime.
14. Jodi Paterson: June 2000
Who? That is what I asked before I found out that Michael Andretti, Formula One driver, is her husband.
Some guys have all the luck.
13. Carmen Electra: 1998, 2000, 2003, 2009
Yes, Carmen Electra is a WAG.
She was married to former NBA rebounding master Dennis Rodman for six months.

First, Sheldon Souray and Angelica Bridges are married, then, divorced and now, dating?
I just can't keep up with these people anymore.
10. Rachel Hunter: April 2004
There was a brief moment when NHL player Jarret Stoll was engaged to Rachel Hunter. Then he won a Stanley Cup.
Now he can do anything he wants because he is a champion.
9. Kelly Brook: September 2010
When I see Kelly Brook, my first thought, once I pick up my jaw, is wow.
My second thought is that I wish I was Thom Evans, her boyfriend.
8. Kim Kardashian: December 2007
I will not deny her beauty because Kim Kardashian is one of the sexiest in the world. I just want to make fun of Kanye West.
7. Pamela Anderson: Too Many Times to Mention

4. Jenny McCarthy: 1994, 1996, 1996, 1997, 2005, 2012
I will bet that Brian Urlacher's girlfriend, Jenny McCarthy, will be gracing a few more covers before she is retired.
That is a fact.
3. Olivia Munn: July 2009
Olivia Munn dated Brad Richards for a few months earlier this year. That is all I needed to know to include her on my list.
Thank you Brad.
2. Hope Dworaczyk: April 2009, June 2010
Jason Kidd might be a great NBA point guard, if not one of the best ever, but he isn't that intelligent when it comes to dumping women.
