Holly Madison’s shocking memories of her time in the Playboy Mansion just keep on getting crazier. In her new book, she even reveals that Hugh Hefner tried to blackmail her into staying with him by promising to leave her a nice chunk of change in his will!
Money can’t buy Holly Madison’s, 35, love! In her tell-all memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures & Cautionary Tales Of A Former Playboy Bunny, the former Girls Next Door star admits that even $3,000,000 couldn’t entice her to stay at the Playboy Mansion with Hugh Hefner!
After years of feeling ‘used’ by Hef, Holly writes in her autobiography that she finally decided to end things for good. But as she was packing her things and moving out of the master suite, she noticed some fishy documents sitting on her bed in a file folder — and Hef was always careful not to leave stuff like that lying around, she notes.
“Inside was a copy of his last will and testament,” Holly recalls. “I spent seven years living with the man, so I can tell you on good authority that he would have never left something this important lying around by accident. It was clear to me that this was meant for me to see.”
But what she found inside was more shocking. “Hef used money as a means to control each girlfriend,” she explains. “Anything he shared with was temporary: a weekly allowance, monthly payments for leaked cars, etc. At a moment’s notice, he had the ability to pull the rug out from under us. But it was there in black and white. The will stated that $3,000,000 would be bestowed to Holly Madison at the time of his death (provided I still lived at the mansion).”
The gesture was ‘unexpected,’ but Holly says she wanted nothing to do with it. “I didn’t want it,” she admits. “I actually pitied him for stooping to that level. I couldn’t help being offended. Did he actually think he could buy me?” Of course, her rush to get out isn’t all that shocking after everything else Holly reveals in the book.
According to the former playmate, Hugh used to masturbate while his girlfriends, and whoever else was in the room, pretended to get it on around him. She also describes their first time having sex as “miserable,” and details the ‘bizarre’ routine that went down on a daily basis.
Kendra Wilkinson Claims Holly Wanted Hef For His Money
Even though Holly insists she wanted nothing to do with Hef’s $3,000,000, her former friend and fellow Playboy bunny, Kendra Wilkinson, claims that’s not the case. In fact, after the book’s release, Kendra defended her pal Hugh, and threw some major shade at Holly.
“Holly, you can tell, had this ulterior motive every minute being at the Mansion, and that motive — it was clear as day — she wanted Hef’s kids, she wanted a piece of Playboy and she wanted to marry Hef for, obviously, his will,” she told People. “That didn’t happen. So what do you think’s going to happen? Revenge. So we’re witnessing some revenge here.”
