About this deal

But while posing for Playboy was her own personal goal, she doesn’t think that other women who want to get into the executive world of sports should feel compelled to follow in her footsteps.

Buss added that her “brilliant” father, who was a fan of Playboy, had a “perfect” response to hearing that his daughter was going to be in the magazine. The distribution for WOW marks the largest media distribution platform for women's wrestling in history. And she said, 'It's a great experience but always be prepared wherever you are, somebody's gonna approach you with the magazine to sign it when you least expect it.Women in particular will admire how she has become a respected executive with integrity, a sense of humor, loyalty and sensitivity in a male dominated business. Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss, as anyone who watched Winning Time or knows anything about the NBA, has lived a pretty amazing life. She is forthcoming about her childhood, her many relationships, and professional life, sprinkled with lessons she has learned through the years.

For example, Buss, who posed in the May 1995 issue of Playboy magazine, says she still gets requests from people asking her to sign the photos every week.She’d had enough time to figure out what she did and didn’t want, and what she was comfortable with. It felt invasive to me, and that was if I was asking someone eating their dinner to sign a napkin or a baseball card.

While this sounds annoying and like it would mean being contacted by some “interesting characters,” but Buss said she always signs the photos. Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss has celebrated a beach wedding with famous actor Jay Mohr after six years of dating. Beginning as the general manager of a professional tennis team at age 19 to owning a professional roller hockey team to being president of the Great Western Forum to vice president and then president of the Lakers, Jeanie Buss has seen and done a lot. As a side note, many people get Jeanie Buss’s Playboy photos mixed up with an iconic photo she did with Sports Illustrated and later decided to use for her Twitter avatar at one point. Aside from her position as owner of one of the biggest sports franchises in the world, Buss made headlines in 1995 as the-then 32-year-old made the decision to model nude for Playboy.As an 18-year-old, I couldn’t have done this… But I feel I’ve matured into a woman who’s confident in her sexuality, in how she looks and in how she takes care of herself.

I spoke to Jimmy Connors’ wife Patti McGuire – she was Playmate of the Year in I think 1976 or ’77 – and I asked her about the experience before I ever pursued it,” Buss tells Bensinger. In the same conversation with Bensinger, Buss spoke about her 'controversial' nude Playboy photoshoot, explaining that it still peruses her despite having done it over twenty years ago. but always be prepared wherever you are, somebody’s gonna approach you with the magazine to sign it… when you least expect it. Given her position as the controlling owner and president of the Lakers, Buss has become somewhat of a pioneer in breaking the stigma attached to woman occupying senior positions in sport.I have been a collector for 15 years and have recently started to sell some of my items since the birth of my baby boy. As Lakers owner Jeanie Buss told me recently on the 'Tampering' podcast, the covert nature of it all was necessary for her to keep her brother and former Lakers executive Jim Buss from wrestling away controlling interest of the franchise.

Buss has now got hitched to the actor/comedian in a picturesque wedding in Malibu that 20 close friends and family attended, according to TMZ. This is a fascinating look inside a sports empire that Jerry Buss has created and then allowed his children to help run it.
