Magnificent Monday. It's feeling like a great Monday and why not get it started with Hollywood actress Zoe Saldana losing all of her clothes? Beyoncé's father could be losing more than his clothes with over a million dollars due to the government. Maybe he should invest in Playboy, especially since the iconic magazine is making history? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Pretty Little Things

There's a lot of simple, small and nice pleasures in life and Zoe Saldana definitely appears to be one of them. The trend, these days at least, has been plastic surgery from head to toes, literally, but looking at the beauty that makes up Zoe, it's amazing how much her smile alone can carry her. Necole Bitchie shows her wearing nothing much other than a smile:


If the fellas don't step it up, Zoe Saldana may very well start batting for the other team. She's looking super sexy on the cover of next month's Allure Magazine, where she strips all the way down to her birthday suit in the accompanying photo spread. She also shared with the magazine that she's pretty open when it comes to her sexuality. When asked about her sexual preference, she revealed: "[I might] end up with a woman, raising my children....That's how androgynous I am." Zoe Saldana joins a list of fierce chicks who have posed nude for the magazine, including Gabrielle Union, Keri Hilson, Jill Scott, actress Regina Hall, and Taraji P. Henson. (Necole Bitchie)

There's plenty more women to look at, but something about Zoe really helps make the sun shine a bit brighter and the flowers blossom just a bit more. Could she really be leaning toward dating women though? Rihanna, anyone? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Bills, Bills, Bills

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter's father is in some trouble and could really use the help of his daughter right about now. It turns out Mr. Matthew Knowles has Uncle Sam knocking on his door for some pretty big payouts. TMZ has more:

The Good News: Beyonce's dad, Mathew Knowles, raked in BOATLOADS of cash during the years he managed B's career ... we're talkin' millions. The Bad News: The IRS says he still owes all sorts of taxes on some of that income -- over $1.2 MILLION. Uncle Sam just filed a ridiculously large lien against Knowles, claiming he needs to cough up some cash from the years 2010 ($485,575.95) and 2011 ($728,004.89) ... all totaled, $1,213,580.84. It's no wonder the bill is so high ... Beyonce is arguably one of the highest grossing musical talents OF ALL TIME -- and during the years 2010 and part of 2011 MK was still managing her career. Not to mention his slew of other projects, including his own record label. Seriously, when your tax bill is over a million ... you're pretty rich. (TMZ)

It's amazing to see how much money Knowles racked up during his time managing Bey. If things are still decent between them, you would have to expect he is going to lean on Bey and ask for a loan. As Lauryn Hill has proved, taxes are no joke. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. First Time For Everything

There is not a lot of non-music featured in SOHH Whatcha Think or even SOHH itself, but the fact Hugh Hefner's cherished Playboy Magazine is embarking on history, there is a slight need for attention. It turns out the publication that's begged artists like Toni Braxton and Rihanna to appear in is finally ready to have its first-ever Mexican-American Playmate of the Year. RumorFix is all over this:


Playboy has named its first ever Mexican-American "Playmate of the Year" -- 25-year-old Raquel Pomplun. The Latina beauty from Chula Vista, California gets $100K and a one year lease on a 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE. "Playboy has taught me a side of myself I didn't know before. It's been a year of wonderful surprises," Raquel says in a news release sent to RumorFix. Raquel also hosts Blackbelt TV's Rockin' Rounds and she is co-host of Playboy Radio's Playmate's Present.

When you consider how many years the magazine has been in publication, it seems pretty amazing that it's taken this long for such an achievement to be made. Regardless, it's good to see a more global approach, hopefully the publication can continue to embrace other cultures and races for the viewing pleasure of teenagers who go through their parents' bottom drawers. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
