A Partridge in a Playboy?

Leslie Adler: Did you see this news clip?

Shirley Jones

"Shirley Jones, who played the wholesome mom on 'The Partridge Family,' may be ready for a big, bold step.... Ms. Jones, who was so wholesome on 'The Partridge Family,' might pose nude for Playboy at the age of 75, if her husband/manager Marty Ingels has his way."

"She's still drop-dead gorgeous, and at the age of 75, a natural beauty," Ingels told Page Six. "I'm her husband, and I think it would be sensational. Mature women are relevant."

Well, I saw it, and here is my plea to Shirley:

Please don't do it! You're still gorgeous and amazing, but I have no need to know if your boobies are "Point[ing] in the direction of Albuquerque."

You are Keith Partridge's mother, for god's sake! What would Reuben Kincaid say? Laurie? Danny? Does anyone remember what the hell the two little kids' names were?

Do you really want young men to be touching themselves to your photos and singing "I Think I Love You?"

I applaud your age-defiant look and all the things you have accomplished. Of course mature women are relevant!!! They are relevant for their wisdom, experience, inner beauty, and yes, even outer beauty ... but can you just let me continue to picture you in the velvet suit with the high-neck-ruffled white shirt and a tambourine? Naked is not one of the visuals I need of you, Florence Henderson, or Marion Ross. You were the mom icons of my day and I choose to keep it that way.

So keep your clothes on, Shirl.

One last thought ... if you go au naturel ... I am thinking across the hood of the family bus would be the way to go.

I disagree; I think her posing in Playboy would be revolutionary. Our culture is so enamored with the young, thin, airbrushed image of women that seeing an older, more real body (despite whatever retouching they do, I doubt they’ll be able to disguise all the experience written across that 75-year-old skin) in a magazine which contributed to that cultural devotion would be refreshing.

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.
