Playboy Bunny Holly Madison
Published: June 11, 2015
Playboy Bunny Holly Madison, Holly Madison’s life as a Playboy Bunny wasn’t as glamorous as it seemed. The ex-Playmate reveals the dark side of dating 89-year-old Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner in her new tell-all memoir, “Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny.”
Madison lived at the Playboy Mansion while dating the octogenarian from 2003 to 2008.
In book excerpts published by Us Weekly, the 35-year-old said she had been verbally and emotionally abused by Hefner.
She details their first meeting at a Los Angeles nightclub in August 2001, where he made her an unusual overture.
“”Would you like a Quaalude?’ Hef asked, leaning toward me with a bunch of large horse pills in his hands, held together by a crumpled tissue,” the star wrote in her memoir.
When Madison declined, she said that Hefner took the news in stride.
“Usually, I don’t approve of drugs, but you know, in the ’70s they used to call these pills thigh openers,” the Playboy honcho told her.
“I want to scream ‘PAUSE!’ and freeze-frame that moment of my life,” Madison recalled. “I want to grab that young girl, shake her back into reality and scream, ‘What the hell are you thinking?'”
Madison moved in with Hefner a few weeks after their meeting, rooming with other Playmates including her future “The Girls Next Door” reality co-stars Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson.
“The tricky thing about the hierarchy is that it changed all the time,” Madison wrote. “The girls competed because everybody wanted to be the next centerfold.”
Holly Madison contemplated drowning herself in the bath at the Playboy Mansion in the depths of her despair as Hugh Hefner’s No. 1 girlfriend, she reveals.
From a modeling wannabe from Oregon to sleeping next to the Playboy magnate – “a man who was old enough to be my grandfather” – Madison details what really went on behind the gates of the fabled mansion in her new book Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, out June 23.
Her “misery” became so all-encompassing that in the tell-all, Madison, 35, recalls lying in a bath in 2002 and pondering: “If I just put my head under water and take a deep breath in, it would all be over.”
While to the outside world Hef’s seven girlfriends led an “incredibly glamorous” life, Madison says instead they were “vacant” and going through the motions, admitting that life at the Mansion was not what she had ever expected.
