Kyla Ebbert has turned an embarrassing situation into an embarrassment of riches.
In July, the waitress was actually told to leave a Southwest Airlines flight because the male flight attendant didn't approve of her skimpy outfit.
"He told me, â€˜I'm sorry, but you're going to have to take a later flight. You're dressed inappropriately. This is a family airline. You're dressed too provocative to fly on this flight,'" Ebbert told Matt Lauer on The Today Show a few days after the incident took place.
After covering up a bit, Kyla was eventually permitted to remain on board. And now - like Kimberly Bell before her - Ebbert has transferred the attention she's garnered into a sexy spread in Playboy.
From booted to booty-ful: Kyla Ebbert follows in the footsteps of Holly Madison nude by posing in Playboy.
"I've wanted to do it since I turned 18," Ebbert said of the opportunity to pose for Hugh Hefner's publication. "The Playboy shoot was amazing."
Kyla also answered a question we're not sure if the magazine asked of other recent models, such as Kim Kardashian:
"Yes, I am a member of the mile high club. And no, it was not on Southwest. It was on a private plane."
