(Newser) – Difficult as this may be to believe, Playboy is apparently not as entranced by newly-legal child bride Courtney Stodden as her 52-year-old hubby is: Stodden has been lobbying for a spread now that she's 18, but the magazine reportedly rejected her because she's been overly "enhanced." The Frisky lists eight more celebs who suffered the same insult:

  • Kate Gosselin: Hugh Hefner apparently doesn't like her any more than the rest of us do, responding emphatically, "No! No!" when asked if the reality star might ever make an appearance.

  • Kelly Osbourne: Man, Hef really doesn't have a filter. When Osbourne said she might want to get naked for Playboy, he responded, "I can't see it happening somehow; we don't airbrush to that extent."
  • Britney Spears: Back in her shaved-head phase, a rep said that Hef would be happy to put Britney in his magazine … "once she can put herself back on the road to recovery." If that's not incentive to get some help, there's none out there.

Back in the 70's Larry Flynt offered several women $1M to pose for Hustler. Can't remember all in the list, but do recall Joan Collins and Lillian Carter, the then current president's aged mother . That's gotta sting for Courtney Stodden.

Hefner is a sexist pig.
