Kristy Garett set to be Playboy's last nude centerfold

Also in Tattle: Saint West, Lebron James Liam Payne

There's a torch being passed at Playboy and it could singe the tiny hairs on Kristy Garett's er, arm, if they weren't airbrushed out.

Kristy, you see, is the 749th woman to be a Playboy centerfold and the magazine's final nude playmate. Miss February 2016. Pamela Anderson will be the final nude issue's cover girl.

And, get this Donald Trump, even though she has an All-American name, she's an immigrant - just another foreigner performing a job Americans no longer want.

According to People magazine, Kristy hails from Tbilisi, Georgia, about 1,000 miles southeast of Moscow, just north of Armenia, and nowhere near Atlanta.

"Playboy has a classic American story, and I want to be a part of it," Kristy, 25, said in a statement to People. "The lifestyle here, where you're free to express yourself, is my type of life. I am proud of the woman I am and have always dreamed of being talked about because of that."

And talk about Kristy in whichever language you like. She speaks six.

Playboy announced in October that they would stop publishing nude photos of women within the magazine's pages, explaining that the Internet took away the need.

The need? Was it really a need?

"That battle has been fought and won," Playboy CEO Scott Flanders told the New York Times of the war social conservatives are still fighting. "You're now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it's just passe at this juncture."

Think about that: Sixty years ago, Lucy and Ricky couldn't sleep in the same bed on TV and now due to the arousal revolution, you're one click away from every sex act imaginable for free.

And 60 years from now? Hugh Hefner will be with a blonde 125 years his junior.


Kim Kardashian West and hubby Kanye announced the name of their new boy via Twitter and her app.

It's Saint West - a solid nine on the pretentiousness scale.

North's baby brother was born Saturday and weighed in 8 pounds, 1 ounce.

LeBron James has signed a lifetime contract with Nike.

James has been partnered with the swoosh since he signed a $90 million contract just before he graduated high school. The NBA star's new deal will carry into his retirement once he's done playing.

Financial terms were not disclosed but the company signed Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant to a 10-year, $300 million contract last summer, so one can only imagine how big LeBron's deal is. Probably.

James has a shoe and clothing line with Nike, and his new agreement will expand his brand.

How about Bron's baby shoes?

* Fear not One Direction fans distraught the group is taking some time off, Liam Payne told E! News that "There's more to come."

And that's the same thing Trump told his fans.
