So fans were baffled when they saw the E! reality star, 25, on the magazine's December issue.
The reality star -- -- whose son Hank Baskett IV turns 1 Dec. 11 -- has taken to her website to set the record straight:
"Hey guys! So I wanted to clear something up really quick!," she explained to Us Weekly. "A lot of you saw on my show that I was struggling to decide whether to pose for Playboy again or not. I am on the December cover of Playboy but it wasn't from a recent shoot. The photos are from a shoot I did two years ago when I was still living in the mansion. I'm flattered to be on the cover again and as you all know Playboy has a very special place in my heart! I just wanted you guys to know I didn't recently pose."
