Amy Leigh Andrews, aka Miss April

Playboy’s Miss April, Amy Leigh Andrews of Conyers, is in the running for Playmate of the Year.

You can vote for her at pmoy.playboy.com.

The 26-year-old Georgia State University communications grad now lives in Los Angeles, where she stays busy going out on casting calls when not traveling to make appearances for Playboy. She plans to complete a graduate degree and would love to be an on-air host of some sort.

Amy Leigh is a communications grad from GSU

We talked to her by phone the other day.

Q: What have you learned as a result from your experience with Playboy?

A: It’s made me a more well-rounded person. It’s brought me out of my shell. I’m not afraid to get up and speak in front of crowds.

Q: You probably aren’t bothered by those see-through scanners at airports either, huh?

A: Not at all! I always seem to get picked for [more thorough screenings].

Q: Were there people who were mean to you in high school? Do you love running into them now and saying, “Check me out, I’m Miss April?”

A: Absolutely. Now they try to act like, “Hey, girl, next time you’re in town, let’s have lunch?” Ha-ha. We were not friends. But I do have tons of friends who are so supportive. I love keeping in touch through Facebook.

Q: Are you single?

A: I have a boyfriend. He’s very understanding.

“Porn mag” ? “ho”? Wow are you folks sheltered. Granted, I dunno if it’s AJC worthy but have some perspective!

Is Playboy relevant anymore? Porn Mag? – get real people. Hope she does well, nothing wrong with having more PMOY from Georgia. I get tired of Ole Miss retards, “we redshirt Miss America at Ole Miss”.

IMO, a feature on Ms. Andrews would be much better than the fecal matter that passes for local news in this town.

I guess she would not be worried about scanners! She would be glad to oblige to further her career. She is taking advantage of her 15 minutes of fame. Don’t know if any television stations would be hiring her but I am sure she will appear in some type of low rent movie some time in the future.

I can’t see why Georgia residents should celebrate a girl’s “achievement” for being named “Playmate of the Year.” It’s certainly not something I or, I hope my daughters will aspire. With all the great things children are doing, particularly this time of year, can’t the writers find something truly a value-add to our community.
I’m not disparaging this young lady, but she took her clothes off…something we all do (hopefully) 365 days a year. Poor choice.

atlgirl-By your statements it appears you think that AJC does NOT cover those types of stores too? I think they do. I see the “feel good” stories in here once in awhile. I don’t think any news media covers the positive stories as much as they do the negative because it doesn’t sell papers or get viewers nearly as much as the shocking negative ones. It’s a business. Secondly, have you seen stories in the paper about local girls that are on America’s Next Top Model? What if one was to be on American Idol? (they have been) It’s a level of fame, right? What’s so different about Playboy? Modeling is modeling, right? So what’s so different that this is a story? Seems quite like the Top Model crap that also get notoriety. Ahhh the difference is she’s naked modeling… So what?!

She’s got my vote; but first, I would like to meet her for some mentoring.

Is this news worthy?

A young woman decides to strip down for some photos and it makes the cover of the AJC? Does this young lady really think this is the best way to get into journalist?

Conyers >>as in Rockdale county>> as in “the lost children of Rockdale county” .. Roughly the same time frame , she came in the tail end of that era. Somewhere there is irony here.

This is coming from the same state where you can’t buy a beer on Sunday.

If God wanted you to be nekkid he wouldn’t have invented clothes. Showing your private parts to the world is nothing to be proud of. This Jezebel has no shame.

What about A Town Dancer turned movie star Briana Blair? She’s got this girl beat all over. She’ll do just about anything, and she’s the pride of Dallas, GA.

The young lady in the article is her own person and is responsible for herself. The vacuous sanctimoniousness of these comments is laughable. The same old hypocrisy from the same anonymous internet posters. Look in the mirror then take responsibility for yourselves. As the Good Book says, “Do not judge so that you will not be judged. “For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. “Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? “Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

atlgirl-well said. Pssh…if you’re going to make statements, back them up. Don’t cower. Tell us, oh wise one. Don’t run from a debate. Back up your argument.

It’s unbelievable how some of you cannot evolve past 1960 and push your prudish values on others.

Verlie Mae-is she showing them to the world? I’m certainly part of the world and I haven’t seen them. Have you? If you don’t want to see, don’t buy the “porn” mag. I’m certain you’d go blind anyway. “jezebel”? puhhlease.

No AJC. As the son of a Georgia Peach and the father of another I can assure you A girl who is trashy enough to spread it all out for Playboy is a lot of things but a Georgia Peach she is not.

Hair, tan, teeth whitening, boobs, all fake, buy it if you want, being from Conyers ain’t got nothing to do with it, she could be from Atlanta, Gwinnett or anywhere and it would still be fake…I am sure her parents didn’t encourage her to do this either, you raise them and they choose their lifestyle……just wish I had her paycheck….
