Prom magazine decided not to use singer and reality television star Brooke Hogan on their upcoming annual edition. Not without reason but it is the star's scantily-clad appearance on the cover of FHM's November issue wearing nothing but a skimpy bikini that prompted the publication to take the step.
A teen-focused magazine, Prom drops Hogan from its cover, citing her image was not appropriate for their audience. "We don't feel up to taking thousands of telephone calls from the upset mothers of our young promers," spokesman Aaron Bernick said in a statement. The magazine, however, has booked Ashley Tisdale to replace her but this will then result in the postponement of its November deadline and publication until January next year.
Elsewhere, Hogan's representative accused Prom magazine of trying to draw attention to the upcoming issue by creating controversy. "Clearly, Prom is attempting to publicize their magazine by stirring up controversy over photos of Brooke that they took more than a year ago," Hogan's rep said in a statement. "Looks like they are trying to up their circulation."
Despite all, Hogan will still have her image featured in the magazine's pages.
