- Manassas, Virigina
- On curves
- I've always been a voluptous girl, so thankfully, when the Beyoncés and the J-Los started to become famous, I got noticed!
- On nudity
- Growing up, I was sort of prudish about being nude. I'm secure in who I am now.
- Posing for Playboy is...
- Iconic. All these women I look up to have done it, like Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson and Bo Derek
A part-time political commentator, the undeniably nubile Tweeden identifies as fiscally conservative, socially liberal and a full-blown American patriot. “I’m more libertarian than anything,” she mentioned in her beachy December 2011 pictorial. “Gay marriage is fine with me, and I think women should have a right to an abortion. But I would like to have more accountability for the welfare system, which is really breaking the bank.”
Her scintillating seaside spread wasn’t Tweeden’s first experience with Playboy. In 1996, the busty brunette appeared on an Olympics-themed cover, but declined a pictorial. “Growing up, I was sort of prudish about being nude,” she said. However, Tweeden ultimately changed her mind at 38 (15 years later), becoming Playboy’s December 2011 Playmate. “I’m secure in who I am now. I’ve always been a goodie-two-shoes girl, but I’m making a choice to change things up. Posing for Playboy is iconic.”
