Playboy magazine wants Kate Gosselin to pose nude for its centerfold and has offered her a $400,000 fee. Star Magazine which reports the matter is informed by a source, "Hugh sent her a letter." However, "Kate was totally mortified and threw it away! She didn't think it was appropriate because of the children," adds the source.
