Ines Sainz Offered “Pretty Big Sum” To Pose Nude In Playboy
According to TMZ.com, Ines Sainz, the TV Azteca reporter who was allegedly harassed in the New York Jets locker room, has been offered a "pretty large sum" to pose nude in Playboy.
Sainz found herself in the midst of a media firestorm two weeks ago, when she attended New York Jets practice to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez. Some hooting, hollering, and various other animal noises ensued, and the Jets were investigated by the NFL after the Association for Women in Sports Media complained.
Sainz later criticized the AWSM for "acting impulsively," and not taking her best interests into account.
Sainz, for her part, talked to anyone who would listen, appearing on various media outlets to give her feelings on the incident - which, surprisingly, were that she didn't take any of the locker room shenanigans too seriously.
A Playboy pictorial starring Sainz would no doubt stir the pot, but, according to TMZ, TV Azteca forbids its on-air talent from appearing nude.
Forgetting contractual obligations for a moment, the moral implications of nakey Ines Sainz are pretty heavy. With her editorial on a Mexican website, she painted herself as a sort of victim in this whole mess (which she is), but failed to mention the fact that her numerous TV appearances helped add fuel to the fire (which it did).
A spread in Playboy would essentially take that fire (which is pretty much a weak ember or two at this point) and pour about a gallon of gasoline on it.
