'Family Matters' Star -- I Wanna Do PLAYBOY!!!

4/26/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Admit it, you've always wanted to see Laura Winslow NAKED -- well, now you might be able to see the person who played her best friend Maxine on "Family Matters!!!"

TMZ has obtained a photo of Cherie Johnson -- who also played Punky Brewster's BFF back in the '80s -- taken during a nude-ish photo shoot on a beach ... and she's hoping the pics will score her a spread in Playboy.

Johnson -- who's 35 years old now -- tells us, "I have been threatening my family that I was going to do 'Playboy' since I was 18 years old."

Cherie adds, "When my mom said 'Okay' ... and my grandma said, 'Bring me a autographed copy,' I figured I'd make it a goal."

Ladies please start having some class about yourselves, I think she has low self esteem to be doing this. This is the reason why women are looked at like hookers. Damit read a book or something or maybe see the inside of a church!

Hey if she did it back when she was 18, GREAT! Now no one cares! She wasn't even one of the main stars of the show. A Old show at that. Still a pretty good looking woman at her age, but for playboy? No! I don't think so.

I don't think she has a chance. She isn't white. She could go more the Fishburne route.

Shoulda done it 15 years ago when anyone would have cared. I don't know why there are so many hang ups about doing a spread for Playboy. Any nudity is a little risque in this country, but Playboy is not porn. If current stars are offered big bucks for a spread in the magazine they should take it, as opposed to waiting until they're 50 and making a feeble and desperate attempt to be featured (see Debbie Gibson).
