Totally unlike whatever the public is led to believe. And she has input. She attends every meeting. What we plan to do is truly tasteful,” he told the New York Post.

magazine and star of The Girls Next Door
"I'm doing a few of these kinds of shows. I'm working with Ringo Starr for a similar idea. I've told him I'll make him famous," he revealed. "And I'm planning another with Hugh Hefner. Actually, he's not a sybarite. In my hands, he'll come off as America's greatest secret agent."
