Towanda Braxton Says Marilyn Monroe Is Her Favorite Playmate, Wants to Play Her in Biopic


Braxton Discusses Marilyn Monroe in ‘Playboy’ Magazine

One of the Braxton sisters is appearing in Playboy magazine — not to expose her bare body, but to talk about her favorite Playmate. Towanda Braxton was asked by the iconic men’s magazine to name her favorite Playmate. Her choice? Marilyn Monroe, whose so-called Golden Dreams photos help to skyrocket the mag to popularity.

“My favorite Playmate is, and will always be, Miss December 1953 Marilyn Monroe,” said Braxton on her fave Playboy Bunny. “I’ve always admired her for having complete confidence even though she was a full-figured woman.”

Braxton also said that she’s so inspired by the beautiful blonde that, if given the opportunity, she’d pounce on the chance to portray Marilyn Monroe on film. ” I’ve used my own motivation and I hope one day to play her in a movie about her life,” said Braxton.

In addition to vying for a role as Marilyn Monroe, Towanda Braxton is preparing to share more intimate details of her life  on WE TV’s “Braxton Family Values.” Six new episodes of the show will be shown starting on Aug. 16.
