Mandy rejects offers from both Playboy and record company.
Mandy Lauderdale has left Temptation Island, where she chose to stay with her boyfriend Billy, and now, she’s not succumbing to temptation in the entertainment world, either. She rejected $1.5 million from Playboy to post naked, and she also rejected a record contract from Capitol Records, because, as Zap2it.com reports, “she was afraid that the company would made her sound like Britney Spears.”
