Was she really naked in front of the studio audience? What if there were children in the audience?

    @Paulie_D: Please leave that as an answer to the question, not a comment. Comments don't have the quality assurance mechanisms that answers do. (And it would indeed be a good answer.)

No, most likely not. Usually for shows that are recorded in front of an audience, nude scenes are pre-recorded on a closed set. Even if they were recorded live, the actor would most definitely have pasties on. Therefor, they aren't nude in front of a live audience even if it was recorded in front of a live audience.
