Cherie Johnson, Family Matters star, wants to pose nude for Playboy. A 2009 semi-naked shoot on a beach gave her the confidence to move ahead with a longtime dream. What does her family think about her career move?

In the long-running sitcom, she played the role of Laura Winslow’s best friend. She was always the one who wanted to push the envelope and live on the edge. And like her on-camera persona, she appears intent on living up to the part in real life.

The talented actress also starred as Punky Brewster’s BFF in the ’80s sitcom with the same name. It’s where she made her début on the small screen.

Now she wants to make her pictorial début in Hugh Hefner’s magazine, says the New York Daily News.

Why does the Family Matters star want to pose nude for Playboy? Perhaps the question to ask is, “why not?” After all, Toni Braxton wants to do it, Pamela Anderson did it, and DWTS Karina Smirnoff says it’s a done deal.

The 35-year-old actress is probably doing it to jump-start her career. She hasn’t been seen much in Hollywood headlines beyond her days on Family Matters.

Perhaps posing for Playboy is the logical thing for Cherie Johnson to do. Besides, her grandmother said she wants an “autographed copy.”
