Oooh er, Missus: PR Week’s Czech correspondent made her excuses and stayed when faced with a nude expose from Playboy’s Russian publisher.

Oooh er, Missus: PR Week’s Czech correspondent made her excuses and

stayed when faced with a nude expose from Playboy’s Russian

publisher.



While attending the 1997 Playboy Ball in Karlsbad’s Grand Hotel Pupp,

our stringer Normandy Madden tried to fix up an interview with Derk

Sauer, publisher of Independent Media, whose Russian language titles

include Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping - and Playboy.



As often happens, the most convenient place for an interview turned out

to be the hotel jacuzzi and sauna, where swimsuits are banned.



’I’ve never done a nude interview before,’ Madden, coyly admitted to

Sauer, who - in best 007 tradition - replied with a smile: ’In Russia,

we do business like this all the time’.
