Lawrence native's risque photos creating a stir


¢ A Lawrence native, Jennifer Braff, who was runner-up on the reality dating show "Age of Love," is creating a stir with nude photos of her that are circulating on the Internet, according to [BuddyTV.com][1].Although Braff's naked pictures were taken long before her mainstream TV debut on Age of Love, many are pondering on the fact that her nude modeling credentials were not divulged on the show or the network's website. Ironically, Braff's official website mentions her job as a Hawaiian Tropic swimsuit model, a makeup artist, a songwriter, a spokes model for Amore Fashion and her appearances on Playboy, except for her work experience for the NBA team.¢ An update on the South Korean art curator who allegedly forged two degrees from Kansas University, as provided by the [Korea Times][2]:A local court Tuesday rejected the prosecution's request to issue an arrest warrant for 35-year-old former assistant professor Shin Jeong-ah on charges she fabricated her academic credentials and interfered in institutions' performance of their duty.__As a result, observers forecast that prosecutors could have difficulty in further investigating other charges against Shin, and alleged influence-peddling by former presidential policy planner Byeon Yang-kyoon, Shin's long-time patron.

There just shouldn't be a fuss over nude shots these days. They're pretty commonplace and I don't think anything negative should happen to a person that chooses to have nude photos taken (unless of course something illegal is going on in the photos.) We need to be a little more open minded about the human form and appreciate it in all its glory. To appreciate some pretty nice human forms, you can visit my photography site. The link is in my profile. Thanks!

It depends on the tone of the pics, to me, if they were porn or not. Is she being photographed in a tasteful way, with her nudity, or is she spread eagle on a chaise lounge wearing stripper heels and licking her lower lip? Either way, it doesn't matter to me, because reality t.v. like this Age of Love crap, is as tacky as porn is so what's the difference?

I personally think all politician's should be required to pose in the nude so everyone can tell what they've been hiding and where the strings are attached! THAT's beside the point; it's not a big deal and I'm not even going to Google her name for pictures!

If they are in focus, it's porn. If they are out of focus, it's art.

She is just helping to celebrate National Breast Appreciation Day. Sadly however, her views of Martin Luther King Day at this point remain unknown. Might I suggest Chad Lawhorn and reporterette Haley Harrison be immediately dispatched to to uncover if she is in fact a racist pornographer.

How about a link to the pix so that we can all investigate further?

I've been censored more times in the last two weeks than in the last year, so I think not. Although I am not a Sunflower Broadband customer, still Chad and Haley may decide that my posting a link will confirm me as a racist pornographer and have yet another "Breaking News!" alert. Safe to say a carefully crafted search string will return a number of hits on this "Chesty Lion."
