Mexican Revolutionaries' Great-Grandaughters to Pose for Playboy

The descendants of two well known Mexican politicians who played key roles in the Mexican Revolution  have decided to fulfill their patriotic duties by posing nude for Playboy in honor of the upcoming 100 year anniversary of the historical war.

Fernanda and Isabel Calles Carranza have agreed to get naked for Playboy Mexico's February issue. The duo “will show off their beauty in a lovely pictorial to kick off the 2010 festivities,” the lad mag said in a statement.

The two lovely ladies are the great-granddaughters of the brother of revolutionary leader Plutarco Elias Calles, former president of Mexico, and a cousin of Venustiano Carranza (1859-1920), who also served as head of state at one point. Calles is widely acknowledged as the architect of Mexico’s 1917 constitution, while Carranza played a major role in the development of many of the country's key 20th century institutions.

Ironically enough, Calles and Carranza were bitter rivals due to their dueling ambitions to lead the country, but years later the two familes were united by the marriage of Fernanda and Isabel's parents. Playboy Mexico says the February issue will offer “a tribute to the men and women who bequeathed us our liberty.”

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
