Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson worked together for six years on ‘Girls Next Door,’ but when the show ended, so did their friendship. In her new book, Holly puts her former co-star on blast, calling her the ‘fakest person,’ while dishing on their huge fight.
Wow, Holly Madison, 35, is really holding nothing back in her new book, Down The Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures And Cautionary Tales Of A Former Playboy Bunny! Hugh Hefner’s ex tells all in the autobiography, including the harsh details of her feud with Kendra Wilkinson, which she says left her “hurt and confused.”
When their main run on Girls Next Door ended in 2009 (they only made guest appearances in Season 6), Kendra, Holly and Bridget Marquardt went their separate ways. And according to Holly, Kendra totally cut off her two former housemates when the show was done.
To clear the air, Holly says she texted Kendra, calling her a coward and the “fakest person” ever, but she really wasn’t expecting her former pal’s explosive response. “WHO ARE YOU???? I DON’T EVEN KNOW YOU! WE WERE NEVER FRIENDS. IT WAS ALL JUST WORK,” the 29-year-old reportedly responded.
“For someone who was all of a sudden trying to act like she was better than Bridget and me, she sure wasn’t above using us for publicity when she needed it,” Holly admits in the book, adding that she deleted Kendra’s number from her phone book after the angry text message. “Kendra and I haven’t spoken since, and I have to say, I don’t miss her,” she writes.
Of course, that is far from the only big reveal in Holly’s book, which comes out June 23. She also dishes, in detail, on how badly Hugh hurt her by pitting all the other playmates against her. “There were always different political alliances with the girls,” she explains. “Hef liked to play the main girlfriend off the youngest one and try and create competition.”
Although Holly eventually did become the ‘main girlfriend,’ she was the youngest when she arrived in 2001. “During dinners or movie screenings, it wasn’t out of the ordinary for me to overhear their loud whispers criticizing my appearance,” she says. “According to their ruthless taunting, I was the ‘hick girl’ from Nowheresville, USA. They found my optimistic attitude corny and my confidence threatening, so they did whatever they could to tear me down.”
Things got so bad at some points that Holly admits she even considered suicide while living in the mansion. She recalls lying in a bath tub, thinking, “If I just put my head under water and take a deep breath in, it would all be over.” Wow, that’s pretty intense. We would never know she had any of these feelings from watching Girls Next Door!
