Chaunce Hayden: Did Playboy ever offer you money to pose nude?
Debbie: Oh, God! Yes, about three times. It got the point where my agent called and said, "Debbie, it's Playboy again. What do you want to do?" And I told him, " I don't even want to know how much, because I might say yes." I started to think, "Why should I be ashamed of what God gave me?"
