"Ask Ashley" could be making a HUGE comeback ... with a dirty twist ... because TMZ has learned, Playboy is offering Amanda Bynes her very own radio show.
Playboy Radio offered Amanda a guest hosting gig yesterday -- but now, a rep for the station tells TMZ, execs want her around FULL-TIME ... and have officially submitted an offer for Amanda to host her OWN hour-long daily radio show.
The offer is for a one-week trial ... but if all goes well, we're told Amanda can extend the deal to a full year.
Playboy's pulling out all the stops to make her feel welcome too -- we're told the org. is willing to provide Bynes with a driver to take her to work ... as well as her very own producer to handle the show's logistics.
FYI -- Bynes became a breakout star on "All That" back in the day thanks to the popularity of her "Ask Ashley" sketches ... when she would give crazy advice to fans.
2:36 PM PT -- We JUST heard back from Bynes ... who, unfortunately, delivered some bad news for Playboy.
"I want to [do the show]," Amanda said ... "But I can’t because I’m recording an album!"
Sidenote: Amanda says she's an aspiring rap star.
But Amanda says she won't leave Playboy hangin' ... telling us, "I’ll go on their show for an interview when I’m promoting my album."
Anna Nicole's Estate
FINALLY Cashes In On
Millionaire Dead Husband
5/30/2013 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The legal battle has raged for more than a decade ... but Anna Nicole Smith's estate may finally see a piece of the Playboy legend's millionaire dead husband ... possibly as much as $49 MILLION.
The Supreme Court ruled years ago that Anna's estate was NOT entitled to any of J. Howard Marshall's fortune -- estimated between $500 million and $1 billion -- but yesterday, a California judge said Anna's 6-year-old daughter Dannielynn is entitled to sanctions against Marshall's family.
The judge hasn't specified the amount of the sanctions yet ... but previously suggested they could run as high as $49 million.
The judge awarded the sanctions based on allegations that attorneys for Marshall's estate used unsavory tactics throughout litigation ... such as concealing crucial legal docs from Anna's estate lawyers.
Anna married oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall in 1994 when she was just 26 ... and he was 89. Marshall died a year later.
Drops $5 Mil On Mansion
For 27-Year-Old Wife
5/16/2013 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hugh Hefner really loves his 27-year-old Playmate wife Crystal Harris ... we're told he's created an intricate plan to set her up in a multi-million dollar estate, where no one in his world can displace her once he dies ... but there is one hitch.
Hef plunked down $5 million last month for a 5,900-square-foot Hollywood Hills mansion, which is held in trust for the 2 of them. Short story -- Crystal owns the house with him.
Playboy sources tell us ... the couple is happily living at the Playboy Mansion, and they have no plans to move. So why, you ask, did they buy the Hollywood Hills home? Fact is ... Hef is a renter! He doesn't own the Playboy Mansion ... it's owned by Playboy Enterprises.
We're told the 87-year-old perennial player wants to make sure Crystal has a roof over her head when he's gone, and the Hollywood Hills estate fits the bill.
As for the one hitch -- it's if they get unhitched. Then Hef will either give her the house, buy her out, or fight it out in court.
BTW ... the house has 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, an infinity pool and sick views -- perfect for a young widow.

'Mob Wives' Pia Rizza
No Way in Hell
I'd Do Porn
3/25/2013 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Mob Wives" Chicago" star Pia Rizza is adamant -- the porn company offering her $100,000 to have sex on screen ... can take their deal and shove it somewhere they usually shoot .. up close.
Pia's response comes on the heels of an offer from porn producer Brazzers ... asking the 'Mob Wives' star to bare all in one of their nudie flicks ... after Playboy shot her down.
Pia tells TMZ ... even though she would have posed for Playboy, pigs will fly before she drops trou for a XXX film, saying, "ABSOLUTELY NOT! That is f***ing insane. A porn deal is not in my future."
She explains, "I am not that girl and I will not be doing porn!! I am a mother and it’s just not something I would ever do no matter how much they pay me."
FYI -- she's still down to strip for Hef, saying, "Playboy is on a different level. Everyone has done playboy because it's classier."
Classy ... as in taking nude pics of yourself in a mirror.
Playboy No, But
Porn Says Yes
3/24/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
When God closes a door, he opens a window, and in the case of "Mob Wives Chicago" star Pia Rizza ... that window is hardcore porn.
As TMZ first reported, Rizza got word that some racy pics she took were about to be released, so she gave them to us as a way to gauge Playboy's interest. Turns out ... there wasn't any.
But Rizza does have a future in the adult business if she wants it. Porn company Brazzers is offering her $100,000 because they feel her "fierce sexual energy has taken the world by storm."
Flattery will get them everywhere, we suspect.
A rep for Brazzers says they'd prefer to shoot a full-on porn, but they're willing to renegotiate the deal if Pia would prefer to do a pictorial.
But again ... they'd prefer porn.
'Mob Wives' Star
3/18/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Mob Wives Chicago" star Pia Rizza's Playboy dreams are OVER ... TMZ has learned, the lad mag has rejected her request for a nude feature.
TMZ broke the story ... Rizza found out someone was trying to sell nude pics of her to the media ... so rather than let them surface on their own, she decided to release them herself.
40-year-old Pia had hoped the pics would get her a Playboy spread ... but that's not happening any time soon ... because Playboy rejected her this week.
Sources close to Pia tell us the photos were submitted to Playboy last weekend, but the magazine quickly shut down the idea, saying they weren't interested at this time.
At this time ...
'Mob Wives' Star
I'm Leaking My Own
3/11/2013 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
When "Mob Wives Chicago" star Pia Rizza found out there were naked pictures of her being shopped to various media outlets ... she knew the drill -- RELEASE THE PHOTOS HERSELF!!!
Pia tells TMZ ... she took the racy pics -- which she allowed TMZ to publish -- sometime last year, while still filming "Mob Wives" and sent them to her boyfriend to get some feedback on whether she had the right stuff for Playboy.
But Pia tells us ... the pics somehow got into the wrong hands -- and someone was trying to sell them without her permission.
1. She doesn't want anyone making money off of HER image
2. Yeah, she wants Playboy to notice
So we gotta ask ...
Playmate of the Year
Sues T-Shirt Company --
You Bamboobzled Me!
3/6/2013 3:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
2010 Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk and her perfect breasts are FURIOUS at an L.A. t-shirt company -- claiming they were hired to promote slim-fitting boob-accentuating tees ... but never got their money.
Hope has filed a lawsuit against a company called Tees by Tina, claiming they entered into a contract in January 2011, in which Hope agreed to promote their shirts in exchange for $120,000.
But according to the lawsuit, Hope says Tees by Tina tried to terminate the contract early ... and failed to pay out the balance of what she was owed. Hope says Tees by Tina has also continued to use her in promotional material, despite not paying her in full.
It's unclear how much Hope believes she's owed, but she's suing for at LEAST $25,000 plus interest. Calls to Tees by Tina weren't returned.
Strips For Playgirl ...
Wanna See My Sausage?
3/4/2013 3:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
In between making pizza and tanning, "Jerseylicious" star Filippo Giove found time to show off what his mama gave him -- BY DROPPING TROU for Playgirl and TMZ has the pics.
Filippo -- a star on the Style Network show since 2010 -- stripped down to his bday suit and posed in a variety of sexy (ish) positions for the upcoming Spring issue.
Specifically, Filippo shows off his derriere on some red satin sheets ... poses with a few strategically-placed bubbles and gets naked in a pizza shop while slathered in marinara sauce -- with only a LARGE pizza box covering his junk.
Maybe it's large ... we're not actually sure. You decide.
RIPS Crystal Harris ...
'I Wanted to Kill Her'
2/25/2013 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Hugh Hefner's new bride Crystal Harris is lucky she's alive ... because Hef's old GF Kendra Wilkinson says she wanted to KILL Crystal for previously dumping the Playboy mogul.
Kendra was on the Big J Radio Show in Montana this morning when the host asked about Hef and Crystal reuniting in matrimony ... and KW blew up, saying, "I got pissed off when she hurt him."
Kendra continued, "That pissed everybody off that she would just leave him and dump him, use him and abuse him." Then added, "I wanted to kill her."
You'll recall, 26-year-old Crystal abruptly ended her first engagement to 86-year-old Hef in 2011 just days before their wedding. The couple patched things up last year and eventually married on New Year's Eve.
But don't worry, Kendra's not holding a grudge -- saying she only wants to see Hef happy.
So as long as Crystal doesn't dump him again ... she should be safe. Probably.
