Kellyanne Conway’s Daughter Reclaims Her ‘Femininity’ With Playboy Deal
Claudia Conway, daughter of former Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, has said she is reclaiming her “femininity and femininity” thanks to her recently revealed debut as a Playboy model online.
The 18-year-old launched a subscription page on Playboy.com in late April. She shared images of herself posing in a bikini, which are freely accessible on the page, while other snapshots require payments ranging from $5 to $99 to view.
In a statement shared with Newsweeka Playboy spokesperson said Claudia Conway’s involvement with the platform had brought her “freedom” and “autonomy”, as well as “major financial success”.
“Playboy believes that all women deserve to have complete control of their bodies and their voices,” the statement read. “Claudia Conway is one of many women who have found freedom, empowerment and major financial success on our creator platform. We welcome her and support her choices.”
Claudia Conway expanded on that on Tuesday, when she took to Twitter to share her own statement regarding her work at Playboy, which is now live only after the magazine ceased publication in 2020.
Preface by stating that this was the “only comment” she would make on the matter, she writing“When I was 15-16 I was exploited by the media, preyed upon and forced to present myself as something I was not. My body was taken from me.
“Now, as a young adult, I aim to reclaim my femininity and femininity in a way that is truly mine. I present myself in a way that is MINE and no one else’s. I have total control of my body and my voice.
“I believe in writing your own story, as I’ve said in the past, and taking back what was wrongfully taken from you.”
The teenager – whose father, George Conway, is a vocal Trump critic – added in a follow-up tweet that “autonomy and freedom are two things everyone should have. Don’t let anyone take advantage of your vulnerabilities – take them back.”
One Twitter user reacted by saying that Claudia Conway “owned the media that tried to turn you into a circus show by turning you into a circus show. This result is *exactly* what they wanted!”
“And who owns the content, who makes money from it, and who has full control over what’s out there now? Me,” Claudia Conway replied.
Claudia Conway, who came out as gay last year and describes her political views as leftist, made headlines as her mother worked as an adviser to former President Trump, publicly lambasting her personally and politically.
The teenager also announced on Twitter in August 2020 that she was “officially pushing for emancipation” from her parents. Things came to a head in January 2021, when Claudia Conway accused her mother of posting a topless photo of her via Twitter’s now-defunct Fleets feature.
In a December 2022 interview with Bustle, Claudia Conway admitted that she didn’t believe her mother intentionally posted the image, which was discovered when her mother was going through her phone.
“My mom helped me through it. She helped me erase it from the internet. So I really don’t think she posted it,” said Claudia Conway, who shared the belief that the her mother’s phone had been hacked. “But it was extremely traumatic.”
In the summer of 2021, once american idol Contestant Claudia Conway revealed in a TikTok post that she is on good terms with her mother.
“I know it’s really nobody’s business, but I kind of made it everybody’s business, not intentionally,” she said at the time. “I sought help earlier this year, last year, because I was in a state where I didn’t know what to do.
“I know a lot of people are confused about my situation, but I’m happy and safe, and my relationship with my mum is really, really good right now.
“She gets the advice she needs, I got the advice I needed, we got the advice we needed together. And it’s about breaking that cycle. So we’re living proof that you can break this cycle.”
Telling Bustle in December that she and her mother went to therapy sessions together, Claudia Conway said: “I’m not going to talk about my mother’s trauma because it’s her story, not mine. But when you have a trauma that you’ve been holding back for, say, 40 years of your life, and you have kids, it’s so hard not to pass that on to them.”
Young Conway added that she now has ‘all the respect in the world’ for her mum for coming to terms with her past with her in therapy, adding: ‘Being so young it’s really hard to understand why someone treat him like he is, especially when she’s your mom and you look up to them so much. I learned so much about her.”
It was announced in March that Fox News contributor Kellyanne Conway and attorney George Conway were divorcing after more than 20 years of marriage.
