'Bachelor' star Vienna Girardi claims she's posing for Playboy, RadarOnline reports. "I am going to be on the cover of Playboy later this year," the former Hooters waitress tells Star in the magazine's upcoming issue.

"The Bachelor didn't pay me a dime, and I ran through my savings living with Jake (Pavelka)," Vienna says. "I need the money. And I want to do something fun and happy for myself!" The reality star is hoping for a $250,000 payday from the gig.

Update: UsMagazine is reporting that Playboy is unaware of Girardi's claims. "This is the first we've heard of Vienna Girardi appearing on the cover of Playboy," the men's mag told UsMagazine. "We are not in negotiations with her and have not made her an offer," the Playboy rep added.

Girardi was most recently in the news after she and 'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka ended their engagement after just a few months together. It's been an ugly breakup with both parties insulting the other in the press. Adding fuel to the fire, ABC is airing a hostile interview with the ex-couple next week.
