Weathergirl in nude pics storm
The Local ^

Posted on 06/21/2006 4:20:29 PM PDT by Snickering Hound

Sweden’s TV4 meteorologist Tone Bekkestad is being punished by the station after the Norwegian weather forecaster posed for sexy pictures in a recent issue of a popular men’s magazine.

The piece in Slitz magazine was highlighting Sweden’s best looking women.

Bekkestad's pose - in tight, low-cut jeans, an open black blazer, and with her cleavage partly showing - was apparently too much for the broadcaster.

Bekkestad, who said she was duped by the magazine thinking it would use other less provocative pictures, was reportedly put on at least three months' leave from her duties as a result.

“She won’t be in the frame because her pictures in Slitz don’t fit with what TV4 stands for,” said Kinna Bellander, channel spokeswoman, reported media industry magazine Resumé.

Bekkestad has criticized Slitz for the publication of the pictures. The magazine said it did not trick Bekkestad, saying she had a great time during the photo shoot.

Can't do a dang thing 'bout the weather, but..

a little more cleavage may help the forecast go down a little easier. ;-)

OK, as someone who has never been to Europe, let alone Sweden, let me ask a dumb question:

Aren't the Europeans so much more "sophisticated" than we "inhibited" Americans? Isn't nudity so accepted there? I mean, what would have happened if she went to the beach and someone took her picture?

When those two gals were stalking me, I told them to stay off magazine covers. Guess they didn't want to listen.

American brewery based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The beer it produced, Schlitz, was often considered the archetype of working-class beers. It has one of the best-known slogans in the American brewing industry: "The beer that made Milwaukee famous".

Jane Curtin showed more when she did the famous blouse ripping skit.

Hello everyone.

Oh, hi Daddy, I like my car.

Oh, by the way, Jim here's too modest to tell you, but he won that big office pool on how many people died in that train wreck in Peru.

Way to go, Jim! [claps]

Anyway, on to the weather.
[reading from the teleprompter with noticeable difficulty]

There is a strom coming to...to... Chic-ago.

Uh-oh. There's a strom coming to us? What's a strom?

Winds are up to 30 mphs.

MNGR [o.s.] That's 'miles per hour', you idiot!

[to the station manger] Hey, I'm not an idiot. I happen to be a metertelologist, dork.

Anyway, strom clods are forming.....
