Behind the Scenes with Brooklyn

Our current cover (to the right) featuring Matthews model Brooklyn Decker–best known for her work in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and in Jimmy Buffett’s latest video–has generated plenty of conversation around town. Fox News Edge debated whether or not the cover best represented Charlotte (news flash: not our job) on two shows last week. The feedback we’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive–people seem to think it’s just a really attractive cover. Frankly, I’m a little surprised by how positive the feedback has been. In the office, we felt strongly that it was a great cover, but you never know how people are going to react.

Anyway, the cover has generated so much attention that I thought I would share some behind-the-scenes action from our photo shoot. Brooklyn was gracious enough to give us five hours of her time when she was in town for some Wal-Mart signings. Some pics are pasted below. We have some video, too, if we can figure out how to get it online. (By the way, every blog post won’t contain bikini shots.) (Also, here’s an argument between Jarvis and me about who’s hotter: our September 2005 cover model and Miss USA Chelsea Cooley or Brooklyn.) —Rick
