Lindsay Lohan may have had a big week last week when her Playboy, leaked but now there are differing stats on how well the Playboy sales did! TMZ says that the issue sales did great, but FoxNews says they were bad, what’s the deal!
According to TMZ,
Lindsay Lohan definitely gave Playboy their money’s worth … because the issue is selling out all across the country … TMZ has learned.
According to our sources, newsstands in major cities like New York and Los Angeles have had to re-order the issue multiple times. We’re told Playboy is even getting re-orders from cities that usually never order more issues.
Our sources say Lindsay’s appearance in the mag has also had an effect online as well … where the mag has seen a huge increase in subscription sales to their online service, iPlayboy.com.
But FoxNews had a different story…they say retailers found that sales were low!
Amidst the holiday melee, shoppers arenâ€™t rushing to pick up their copy of the much-talked about Lindsay Lohan issue of Playboy this week.
It was one thing to see Lohanâ€™s nude Playboy spread when it was leaked on the Internet last week. Itâ€™s another experience entirely to see the 10 pages of photos in person in the magazine, which hit newsstands Friday.
But not many consumers are paying for that experience. In fact, interest seems low in seeing Lohanâ€™s intensely air-brushed impersonation of Marilyn Monroe in glossy print. Fox411 spent Friday morning trolling the shelves of newsstands and gas stations from New York to Philadelphia only to be confronted with the same reality at each: Lohanâ€™s glassy-eyed stare peaking above the backs of more family friendly fare, with no one staring back or making a purchase.
â€œNo one has bought it,â€ was the resounding answer to our query at each stop.”
