Daddy asked her to leave ten years later than he should have. I hope Playboy can be saved. BTW they’re looking for a buyer…

Or more accurately, if: a) would she have gotten more if she were a man? or b) if a man got $2 million, would anyone be complaining about it? I’m thinking she should have received more in the $4-5 MM range.

I think you just wanted to post something that would get a lot of attention for very little effort and surely putting a name like Playboy in the title accomplishes this.

Compared to others doing less and with less positive results that is really cheap.

I attended Northwestern Law School from 1959 to 1962 and went to the Chicago Playboy Club 3 times a week. My law school buddy was a bouncer at your club, and after 4 am my friend and several bunnies used to have breakfast at Mammies on Rush street. I just loved Playboy after Dark at the Chicago Mansion. Your father was so cool then with his Mercedes 300 SL tooling around Chicago.

Good luck with your severance. What are you going to do in your retirement years, take care of “daddy”. Line up.
Best regards, Martin S. Friedlander, Esq, Marty to you. I live down the block from the LA house.

It’s too bad she didn’t work for the magazine in another capacity as well.

She didn’t do excessively well and the added 400K is a nice thank you for her.
Her dad took 60 Million but that was fine,…it was his company.
They haven’t asked for bailout money, federal loan guarantees either,……So stay out of it.

I don’t get your point, you jealous?
