Playboy models defend, encourage fired Spanish teacher

Now that The Daily Caller’s favorite Spanish teacher, Cristy Nicole Deweese, is out of a job for posing nude in Playboy, it’s obviously time to find out what other women who posed nude in Playboy think about the situation.

If two women interviewed by Fox News represent an accurate sampling, there’s a lot of anger and disappointment out there.

The Dallas Independent School District fired Deweese, 21, last week. The first-year teacher had posed nude as Playboy’s “Coed of the Month” in February 2011 when she was an 18-year-old college student.(RELATED: Hasta la vista, baby: High school Spanish teacher who posed for Playboy now sacked)

“I think it was very unfair that she was fired. She didn’t do anything wrong. She didn’t break any laws. She was a beautiful young girl. She’s educated and that’s what really should matter to these parents,” Playboy model Jessica Leigh told Fox News. “What she’s done in her past shouldn’t really affect it as long as she has her education and is teaching her students to the best of her ability.”

Leigh’s added that Playboy is pretty tame as far nudity goes.

“It’s kind of the Disney of porn,” Leigh proffered. “Women want to be beautiful and show themselves like, ‘Hey, I’m young. I’m beautiful, you know, here it is.’ We’re born naked, so I don’t think it’s that big of a deal.”

Liz Ashley, another Playboy model and a friend of Deweese, agreed.

“I could understand if someone was upset if she was doing it currently now, but since she did do this years before while she was in college — probably to put herself through college — I don’t think there is anything wrong with that,” Ashley said. “Not everybody has some big nest egg with money sitting aside for college.”

Ashley said she has encouraged her friend to find another teaching job. However, Deweese has indicated that she may return to modeling if the whole Spanish teacher thing doesn’t pan out.

“The day she got fired she actually said, ‘It looks like I’m going to be modeling again [since] obviously I’m unemployed,” Ashley told Fox.
