♥Happy Valentine’s Day♥
On Monday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, ABC revealed that its new Bachelorette will be Rachel Lindsay. The 31-year-old Dallas attorney is the first African-American lead, male or female, in the popular franchise’s history. (The Bachelor and The Bachelorette premiered in 2002 and 2003, respectively.) On the premiere of this season of the Bachelor with Nick Viall, Lindsay was also the first black contestant to get the show’s first impression rose. “I’m ready to find love, find a husband, so if you know anybody out there who needs to apply, sign up, go ahead and get started!” Lindsay told Kimmel after the announcement. She also shared that she’s looking for “someone who’s ready to start a family… someone who can make me laugh.” Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette will premiere on May 22.

Nude models are returning to the pages of Playboy Magazine. One year after the longtime men’s magazine decided to end its tradition of featuring naked women, publication officials say the new March-April issue of Playboy will once again feature women posing in the buff.

He says nudity isn’t a problem and Playboy is “taking our identity back.” Playboy caused waves early last year when magazine leaders announced they would no longer feature nude photos of women inside the magazine. At the time, Playboy officials said the move was in response to changing times. Playboy has still featured women in provocative poses for the past year. (Read more from CNN)
