Rita Jenrette says she regrets posing nude in Playboy magazine and will never do it again because "I have to establish my credibility now."

The estranged wife of former Representative John Jenrette (D., S.C.), told students at Nassau Community College Wednesday that she did the nude layout "to get money for my husband's defense" against his conviction in the Abscam scandal.

"You will never see me take off a stitch of clothes again, not even a shoe," she added.
