    I was reading this article about Ashleigh Banfield by Tunku Varadarajan in OpinionJournal.com (which is the editorial site of the Wall Street Journal). When he mentioned the following, it got me interested:

    Excerpt from Tunku Varadarajan in Out There: Windswept, inept, Ashleigh Banfield hits the road:
    But anyone who has watched her show knows that if you strip away the clothes and the hairstyle, the bus and the advertisements, the "production values" and the policy briefings (which she seems to have trouble mastering), you're left with a cipher.
    I must confess that I needed several attempts before I was able to finish reading that sentence.

    After all, a "cipher" is not exactly the first thing that would come to my mind if I were to "strip away the clothes and the hairstyle" of Ashleigh Banfield.

    After viewing the Britney Spears Drinks/Smokes/Does the wild thing thread in the Music forum, it appears likely that I am not alone.

    I therefore set about conducting an Internet search for Ashleigh Banfield pictures, just so that I might see if my admittedly lowbrow thoughts were indeed correct.

    ...

    That is when I happened upon the following link:

    You Be The Judge: Is MSNBC's darling anchor Ashleigh Banfield really a former Playboy Playmate?

    *** NOTE TO THE VH FORUMS MODERATORS: THERE IS NO PORNOGRAPHY SHOWN IN THE PREVIOUS LINK. PLEASE DO NOT CLOSE THIS THREAD. ***

    I was just wondering if there is anyone here who is good with Photoshop that might be able to remove the glasses from a recent picture of Ashleigh Banfield so that we might be able to make a solid judgment of whether or not Ashleigh Banfield is really the Playboy Playmate Kerri Kendall?

    I'm thinking that this Mr. Varadarajan guy might have known about this potential controversy considering that in his article he later wrote the following:

    Excerpt from Tunku Varadarajan in Out There: Windswept, inept, Ashleigh Banfield hits the road:
    "Around the world, now across America, Ashleigh Banfield is on location," intones the announcer at the start of each show.

    ...

    So far, she's "done" Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and a roadstop in South Dakota...

    She was an anchor here in Dallas for a few years before she moved on to MSNBC. I don't think they are the same girl, but they are definitely a "seperated at birth."

    I gotta admit that they look identical. Has anybody seen a shot of Ashleigh's body? I'm wondering if anybody knows if she's voluptuous or not, because Kerry had an awesome set of knockers. [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    I found the poll to be funny.

    "I'm gonna watch MSNBC with my pants down!"

    LOL that's good shit.

    Otherwise, I don't really think they look a like all that much to say they are the same person.

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Pretty funny controversy! They definitely look similar but I'm still not 100% sure.
