Kendra Wilkinson is again letting the world know exactly what she thinks about Holly Madison and her memoir! The bottom line: don’t be badmouthing Hef, or their time in the Playboy Mansion — and don’t bite the hand that feeds you!
Kendra Wilkinson, 30, is fighting back against the claims Holly Madison, 35, made in her sensational memoir “Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny.” In an interview with US Weekly on August 1, Kendra said that she didn’t approve of Holly’s stories about their time spent as Hugh Hefner‘s live-in girlfriends at the Playboy Mansion — and that it’s a “shame” that she couldn’t appreciate their life there. Holly’s on blast!
“It’s a shame that someone can’t be appreciative of what something like that has given them,” Kendra said to US, speaking about Holly’s remarks. Ouch, Holly! Kendra has vehemently defended Hef and the time the girls spent living in the Mansion after Holly’s book was released, disputing many of her former The Girls Next Door castmate’s claims slamming Hef. Life was pretty terrible with the Playboy magnate, according to Holly; as his girlfriend, she was exposed to unwanted sex and drugs, and was just downright miserable.
Not so much, said Kendra. She still has a close bond with her ex-boyfriend, and has nothing but praise and respect for him. She even married husband Hank Baskett, 35, on the mansion grounds! She told the magazine that she’s thankful for the opportunities she received from her time at Playboy; it helped launch her television career. But at the end of the day, it’s not up to her to shape the public’s opinion. If people want to believe Holly, they will.
“I just think it’s up to people what they believe,” Kendra said. “The proof is out there on The Girls Next Door. At the end of the day, people made up their minds already if they believe it or not. So I can’t dictate. I can’t manipulate anybody’s minds.”
