Cheryl Tiegs - Cheryl Tiegs Blasts Kate Upton Bikini Cover As 'Playboy'

Fresh from being fired from the Celebrity Apprentice, former Sports Illustrated model Cheryl Tiegs has been discussing the current crop of bikini models and is less than impressed with America's favourite new cover star: Kate Upon.
Tiegs joined Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday's Access Hollywood Live (February 20, 2012) and was asked about the current Sports Illustrated issue, which features 19-year-old Upton on the cover. Cheryl said, "It's not my favorite Sports Illustrated cover of all time.I like so many of the pictures inside. Sports Illustrated always has that fine line of being very 'sexy/girl next door/earthy/kind of athletic.This is a step toward Playboy, I think". Despite disliking the cover, Cheryl said Upton is actually a delight to meet and said she's "even prettier in person than that cover". Tiegs - who featured on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover in 1970, 1975, and 1983 - had to endure the ignominy of being the first to leave this year's Celebrity Apprentice over the weekend. Discussing being given the boot by Donald Trump, Cheryl said, "I went into 'Celebrity Apprentice' thinking that I could work with the team and be kind, be good. That's how I built up 12 companies in my lifetime. the women's team -- they were rather tough to work with.I liked the men's team a lot and still keep in touch with a lot of them".
As well as her work for Sports Illustrated, Tiegs also appeared on the cover of numerous other notable magazines, including Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Time and Vogue.
