In the sultry shot, the Nebraska native is seen completely naked, covering her body with a purse by Etro.

The runway star also accessorized with several gold rings, tiny hoop earrings and wore her hair in two Rapunzel-like braids.
The TV personality’s followers gushed over the racy social media post, sharing their praises in the comments section. “This isn’t the slay we wanted, it’s the one we NEEDED,” wrote one fan. A second social media user gushed: “Here is not Instagram versus reality. Here is just reality!” A third chimed in with: “I AM IN ACTUAL TEARS AT HOW REAL THIS WOMAN IS LIKE.”
