I feel I've matured into a woman who's confident in her sexuality, in how she looks and takes care of herself. People have preconceived notions about the children of the boss. But anyone who knows me knows what I can do. At the barely adult age of 19, Jeanie was named general manager of the Los Angeles Strings professional tennis team while finishing her education at USC. The careers — yes, plural — that came after followed a similarly impressive arc. Beyond nepotism, Jeanie has thrived in an arena that few women have been able to conquer— succeed in the male-dominated world of pro sports ownership. But the honest and true reason Buss posed for Playboy is simple. She was a long-time fan of the iconic, sophisticated brand and just like her successful sports team ownership career appearing in the publication was one of her dreams as young woman. Being featured in Playboy was one of them. This, to me, was the perfect statement that I wanted to make about myself.
