Kim Kardashian encouraged "I'm a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here!" dropout Heidi Montag-Pratt to pose for Playboy magazine, according to MTV News.

"I think that now's the time," Kim told MTV. "I think it's a very classy magazine. It's artsy. I talked her through the whole process and helped her make up her mind."

According to Heidi's husband Spencer, the photos are "hypothetically" set to hit newsstands in August. He also approved of the spread.

Kim has also posed for Playboy.
