Everybody wins with Shanna Marie McLaughlin, our Playmate of the Month for July 2010. She’s tall – 5’8” – and all natural, with wavy blonde hair, blue eyes and full lips. A model, actress and entrepreneur, Shanna was working as an account manager for an event planning company in Florida when she was transferred to Los Angeles. “I saw an ad casting for a new Playboy TV series, Playboy Shootout,” she says. “I had been casting all over town, and most directors told me my boobs were too big. I figured the one thing I had left to do was Playboy.” She went to the audition, got the part and competed against nine other girls for the chance to win a spread – and not to mention a Centerfold – in our magazine. She beat out the competition to become Miss July 2010, and needless to say, her boobs were not too big for Playboy. “ Shootoutwas like Playmate boot camp,” says Shanna. “I had never posed nude before, and standing nude in front of the judges – some of them former Playmates – got me ready to shoot my pictorial.” Shanna’s modeling career has taken off, and now she wants to focus her efforts on business. “When I became Miss July, I was a few credits away from a master’s in business administration,” she says. “I want to start a grant for women, kind of like an angel investment firm, to help them fund new businesses. You know, not all Playmates are dumb blondes – most of us have good business sense.” Not to mention a sense of conscience – Shanna solicits donations to charity on her Twitter page, and she recently hosted a cocktail party for MS research. When she’s not working – and she’s alwaysworking – she hangs around the house with her dog, Layla, cooking and spending a bit of well-earned time on the couch. “I’ve seen every episode of Seinfeldat least once,” she admits. Shanna is close with her fellow Playmates, and she’s a regular at the Mansion. With the body of a Playmate and the head of a top account executive, we think it’s safe to say that Shanna was a good investment.
