For those of you comatose for the past few months, Johnson is the curvy temptress who led the 66-year-old Gifford to her hidden-camera-equipped room at New York's Regency Hotel last spring. Now, the 47-year-old bombshell, currently on leave from TWA, is cashing in on her 15 minutes. "There's a Suzen Johnson pictorial in the November issue. It has already been shot," said a Playboy staffer, requesting anonymity. "I don't think it's been decided whether she'll be on the cover. She may be." The issue will be on newsstands by early October.
According to reports, photographer Stephen Wayda shot Johnson in a hotel room setting for five days about two weeks ago. No word on whether said hotel room resembled her Regency love nest.
Johnson received a six-figure sum for the spread. Add that to the reported $75,000 she picked up from the Globe for luring Frank to the Regency, and the curvy blonde has turned a nifty profit on her dalliance.
Meanwhile, the Globe, which has published photos and transcripts of the encounter, continues to get its money's worth, milking the tryst for all the ink its worth. The latest edition of the tab quotes a Playboy source who claims readers will "be stunned when they see how beautiful and voluptuous Suzen is" and will "know immediately what it is that attracted Frank Gifford to her."
The weekly, which previously reported that Johnson might be carrying the Giff's love child, also says the curvy adulteress suffered a miscarriage shortly after wrapping the rigorous Playboy shoot.
