Barbara Lynn Klein better known as the ex-Playboy model Barbi Benton, has an estimated net worth of $20 million. As well as appearing nude in Playboy magazine during the 70's, Benton generated her net worth as an actress and singer. New Yorker Benton moved to Los Angeles at the age of 16, in search of modelling work. Before the Playboy years, Benton was a regular on the variety show Hee Haw, but after four seasons, she left the show to concentrate on other projects. Benton set every teenage boy's heart racing when she became a cover girl for Playboy magazine and appearing nude in double spreads in 1970, 1973 and 1975. Despite her regular appearance in the top shelf magazine, Benton was never a 'Playmate of the Month'. As an actress, she appeared in ABC's comedy series, Sugar Time! The comedy show tells the life of a wannabe female rock group in the 70's. Benton enjoyed considerable success as a country and pop singer in the 70's. Her first single, Brass Buckles (1975), peaked at number 5 on the Billboard's country singles chart. Her 1976 single, Ain't That Just the Way was covered by R&B singer Lutricia McNeal in 1996. McNeal's version of single was a massive hit in the UK and Sweden. Throughout her singing career, Benton went on to produce and record eight albums. Her last album was recorded in 1979. In the same year, Benton married a real estate developer, George Gradow and quitted the showbiz life in 1986 to start a family. Together the couple has two children: Alexander (born 1986) and Ariana (born 1988). Ariana appeared in The Girls of Playboy Mansion in 2008-2009. Benton was in a relationship with Playboy master Hugh Hefner. She met Hefner in the late sixties when she was just 18 and he was 42! Her first TV appearance was on Hefner's show, Playboy, After Dark. Recently Hefner openly admitted that the best thing that came out his 60's TV show, was meeting Benton. Today Benton is now a Interior decorator.
Barbi Benton (born January 28, 1950 as Barbara Klein) is an American model, actress and singer.
She was featured on the cover of Playboy several times (initially credited as Barbi Klein) and in nude photo layouts in the March 1970, December 1973, and January 1975 issues, although she was never one of the magazine's "Playmates of the Month".
Benton is known for her years as a regular on the country music series Hee Haw, appearing in comic skits with other cast members. She left the program after four seasons to concentrate on a more Hollywood-oriented career. She also starred in the short-lived ABC-TV comedy series Sugar Time! about an aspiring female rock group in 1977.
Benton was also a recording artist with some success. Her record "Brass Buckles" (1975) was a top five hit on Billboard's country singles chart. Benton has recorded eight albums, the last of which she personally produced in 1979. She also composed the songs, sang them and played piano. One of her better-known songs was "Ain't That Just the Way" (1976), which was also a major hit for Lutricia McNeal in 1996, and was recorded by the Dutch singer Patricia Paay under the title Poor Jeremy in 1977.
Benton is a former girlfriend of Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner and lived with him from 1969 until 1976. When the TV series The Girls Next Door visited her in Aspen, she expressed gratitude that the pair had remained friends.
Benton married George Gradow, a real estate developer, on October 14, 1979. The couple have two children, Alexander (born August 23, 1986) and Ariana (born 1988). For many years, they split their time between their homes in Aspen, Colorado and Los Angeles.
On April 28, 2006, Gradow was sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to tax fraud and altering financial documents in a bid to mislead the Internal Revenue Service.
On October 22nd 2011 when Hugh Hefner was asked by Josh Sigurdson over Twitter what his favorite memory of Playboy After Dark was, Hugh re
