Those itching to see Kristine Lefebvre nude in Playboy can scratch away today.
The issue is on newsstands everywhere.
Simply by viewing these sexy pictures, you can see how beautiful the former candidate on The Apprentice is. But it takes a few minutes to really understand all she’s gone through.
The lawyer was diagnosed cervical cancer after two years of infertility treatments resulted in a pair of miscarriages.
She then underwent a radical hysterectomy about a year and a half ago and, at times, questioned her status as a woman.
“There was a while when I was like, Am I even a woman any more?” she said to E!.
“Can I please my husband? Will my husband want to be married to someone like me, because I can’t bear his children?”
We hope this sort of candor helps those pregnant, such as Elisabeth Hasselbeck, feel grateful for their gift even more.
Meanwhile, Lefebvre gets naked in the name of cancer awareness.
Talking about the photo shoot, she said:
“I want people who have gone through what I’ve gone through to realize they’re still a whole person. I hope there’s one woman out there who has had breast cancer and is willing to go back into her lingerie drawer and pull out that lace bra – not to make her husband or her boyfriend feel good but to make herself feel good.”
As for the beautiful pics we’ve spread across this post and this celebrity gossip blog, there are no hysterectomy scars visible.
“They did not leave the scars in,” she said. “You know, I had no problem leaving them in, but I understand that my personal soapbox is not what’s going to sell magazines. Men want to see a body. They don’t want to see a scar from hip to hip.”
