Heidi Montag isn’t done showing off her newly enhanced assets. The reality-turned-surgical star is currently in talks with Playboy for a deal that could earn her more than a million dollars.
“Heidi would love to do another (Playboy) cover,” said a source who’s exceedingly close to the couple.
Montag’s first Playboy pose, back in September, was conservative by some standards, but part deux stands to be a little more risqué.

The day's top national and international news.
“She is currently speaking with (Playboy photographer) Matthew Rolston (about) a steamy, soapy, shower concept showing her boobs through the shower door,” said the source. “The figure being discussed for the exclusive is in the seven figures.”
“She could use the money, and she’s finally ready to pose topless, so she is negotiating with the magazine,” according to one of Montag’s friends, who spoke to In Touch Weekly.
No Howard Stern for ‘Idol’
Howard Stern is not and will not be sitting on any offer from “American Idol,” according to multiple sources close to the show.
While some rumors had the radio shock jock replacing caustic judge Simon Cowell, a producer said, “No way. Never, not in this lifetime.”
And The Daily Beast’s go-to “Idol” reporter, Richard Rushfield, backs that up. Rushfield reports that two “Idol” insiders say the show is months away from choosing a replacement for Cowell, and that another source familiar with the search process said “Stern was never even being considered.”
Elin sees Tiger as ‘damaged bird’
There are still no imminent signs that suggest Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, will be divorcing. Since Woods’ Thanksgiving night car accident, sources close to the family have been steadfast in their assertion that both Woods and Nordegren want to work things out.
Sources who spoke to Us Weekly said that Nordegren’s main motivation to stay with Woods is that she doesn’t want their kids, Charlie and Sam, to grow up without Mom and Dad in the same home. Nordegren “feels children need both parents,” said an Us source.
The onetime model is also grappling with the idea she can “heal the golfer,” according to the magazine.
Woods is rumored to have checked out of the Pine Grove sexual-addiction facility in Hattiesburg, Miss., on Feb. 5, and “Elin doesn’t see him as an awful guy, but a damaged bird,” according to the magazine’s source. “She wants to help him.”
And another insider added that Tiger is still trying to win her back, saying, “He is doing whatever she needs.”
