Pia Rizza, one of the "stars" of the late, lamented show "Mob Wives Chicago," has been rejected by Playboy. The report came on Monday, a week after it was learned that someone was shopping nude images of to the media.
After Rizza discovered that someone was trying to sell nude images of herself, she decided to release them herself, in an attempt to make Hefner's bunny magazine. Reportedly, Rizza said she posed for some nude self portraits in 2012 and sent them to her boyfriend to get his opinion on whether or not she was sexy enough for Playboy.
It's unclear what her boyfriend's vote was, but Playboy's was negative. The magazine rejected her request to do a nude feature for them.
Sources close to Rizza said that the images were submitted to Playboy last weekend, but the magazine quickly shot down the idea, saying they weren't interested at this time.
Rizza had decided to drop the idea after all the flak she received from her fellow "Mob Wives Chicago" cast members about being an exotic dancer.
Perhaps the adult magazine will reconsider if Rizza can land on a new reality TV show. After all, they said "at this time."
Pia Rizza, 40, is the daughter of Vincent Rizza, who worked for "The Chicago Outfit," also known as the Chicago Syndicate, Chicago Mafia, Chicago Mob, or simply the Outfit. Rizza subsequently testified against them and entered the Federal Witness Protection Program.
