Model Emma pulls out of Playboy photoshoot

MODEL Emma Quinlan has backed out of baring it all for Playboy magazine.

The Dublin model (26) revealed she was forced to reconsider doing the steamy US pictorial shoot because she was unhappy with the final deal on offer from the famous glamour magazine.

Speaking to the Herald, the Castleknock model said: "I wasn't happy with what was being offered and I felt I could do better.

"We talked about it and the deal on offer now is not the deal that was originally discussed.

"A lot of people aren't aware that the magazine recently changed hands and Hugh Hefner's daughter is no longer running it, so things have changed.

"The offer is still there but it's off the table now as far as I'm concerned."

The niece of former property tycoon Derek was the first Irish model to be approached by the Hugh Hefner organisation since the late Katy French.


The snake charmer-turned-model was first approached to appear in Playboy more than a year ago and even did a number of test shoots for the magazine.

Emma brokered a deal to appear in a five-page burlesque themed shoot for the magazine last February and was due to head off to the US this month for the latest photoshoot.

But the model is now happy to be jetting off on holiday to Egypt next week instead.

She has already appeared in several editions of FHM magazine, including two American editions and one Australian.
