But concerning Hef and his in-house whores -- oh, we mean "girlfriends" -- Wilkinson had some pretty choice opinions on the matter. Basically, Hefner was a king and the ladies of the home didn't want the sole burden to be on them all the time, so they would drag the newest, bright-eyed bunnies over in hopes of increasing the field, so to speak. The more girls in the room, the less likely the in-house ladies would have to put out.
The "vets" forced the new hopefuls into their "rite of passage," a few pride-swallowing minutes with the old man, although many of the other women have been quoted as stating that Madison was willing to do whatever Hefner wanted, whenever he wanted.
That was, until she remembered everything differently while writing a memoir. First off, it gave us a bird's-eye view of what was going on inside the Playboy Mansion, which featured many hot girls having a great time, as if this were some sorority house gone bad. But the reality of what was going on versus what was shown on television may not have been a perfect mirror image. We'll get to that. But the show featured both Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison as the stars of the show, as they were Hef's girlfriends.
It was clear from the start that these women enjoyed being taken care of and loved the Playboy Mansion lifestyle afforded to them by Hefner. It was a "pay for play" scenario. And everyone made out nicely when the television series was a hit. It started in and would last for 5 successful seasons until the girls were out of Hef's Mansion and out on their own.
This should come as little surprise as it was obvious from the start what their intentions were. And although Holly Madison played the role of longing girlfriend wanting to get married perfectly on the television series, the complete opposite came out after the fact.
Madison brought about allegations of sexual misconduct and drug abuse in the Playboy Mansion and completely backed off of the notion that she was a little star-crazed puppy wanting Hef's babies. But the reality was, when Madison was a nobody working at Hooters, she was more than willing to lay down for the opportunity to get into Hefner's Mansion aka bed.
She played her part perfectly until she gained success and notoriety; then, she was able to stand on her own two feet and burned down the Mansion in her best-selling memoir. The things they do for money The girls who once roamed the Playboy Mansion were not nearly as interesting away from Hef's eerie grasp, and the show quickly lost viewership and interest.
As for Madison and Hefner? Well, Hugh Hefner described the end of their relationship in the most honest way possible: Clearly, there was a disconnect between Madison's desire to get impregnated and married to the Playboy mogul and the reality of Hef knowing she was simply after his money and lifestyle. It was clear that Madison's next avenue was the reality-television world she was already thriving in.
She caught on with a variety of opportunities, attempting to parlay her name recognition into any and all career avenues available to her. The year was , and Madison planted a flag in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sin City would be Madison's playground for the next three years. There were parade participants, breaking the old record of At the same time, she naturally signed on to do a reality television series entitled Holly's World, which captured all of the exciting happenings surrounding the wannabe reality-television star.
In , as Madison was on the tail end of her time in Las Vegas, she started dating Pasquale Rotella. In August of , she announced that they were going to be expecting a baby together. Aurora Rotella was born on March 5th, , and later that year, Rotella and Madison married at Disneyland.
They have since gone on to have a second child together and remain in Las Vegas together, where their love initially blossomed. You know, just in case. Remember, Madison was "broken" over her breakup with Hefner. She even was quoted as saying that she didn't need men in her life and may not want to date for a long while due to the end of her fun with Hefner.
Ah, how times change when you date a handsome man your own age. Her recounting of her time at the Mansion was scandalous. She lit fires everywhere, accusing Hefner of being a dirty old man and peddling drugs around the Mansion.
Madison called the Mansion a "house of horrors. They claimed that Madison did kinky sex acts with Hefner others would not. And other claims include Madison dressing like Hefner and having an obsession with the old man. Also, other women recalled watching as Madison did the sexually degrading acts that she claimed she later regretted despite being a willing participant at the time.
Hefner, for his part, has taken the high road, only stating that he enjoyed his time with Madison as he has with his many other girlfriends. Just gotta love that guy. There's very little left for her, but we're certain she'll make a few cameos in the reality-television world. When someone is desperate for a name who won't cost an arm and a leg, they'll give her a call.
And we can see her hosting parades on television or being a New-Year's-Eve person. Look, Madison is easy to look at. But remember, she went from an A to a D cup size. She had a nose job and tried to turn herself into something she perceived as beautiful and sexy. She now has a family, a husband along with two children.
She also has some name recognition and will pop up here and there. Just don't count on seeing her on the cover of Playboy anytime soon.
