Women of Enron

As Enron executives begrudgingly bare the facts about the biggest bankruptcy in U.S history, the women of Enron are revealing their hidden assets in the august issue of Playboy magazine.

Christine Nielsen was an Enron project coordinator for two years before she got laid off and landed on the cover of Playboy, and inside it's so-called pink-slip pictorial.

Christine might be laughing her way to the bank now as she cashes in on the Enron controversy, but she tells "Extra" the giant corporate collapse hurt her personally. She says, "I did know a lot of people who lost their life savings. I did have quite a bit of stock that was given to me at different points during my time there. My father even had quite a bit that he lost. It was really, really unfortunate."

But Christine and more than 300 other "Women of Enron" decided to make the best of the situation by responding to Playboy's casting call. Christine's boyfriend, Jesse, snapped her nude audition photos and he says he's proud that Christine was one of the 10 women selected to pose for the world famous men's magazine. He says, "Looking through the magazine as a young kid you fantasize, okay, that's the glamorous, untouchable, professional woman. And that's exactly what she is."

As for her ex bosses at Enron, Christine says, "I'm sad that I lost my job, but there's nothing you can do about that. So I don't feel like Iím sticking it to them. I'm feeling like it was another opportunity that was brought to me because I worked there."
