Today is a big day for Girls Next Door alum Holly Madison with the release of her tell-all Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny. Hugh Hefner’s ex and the former Holly’s World star has written a memoir detailing her time in the iconic Playboy mansion, as well as her relationship with Hef himself. She’s already piqued the public’s curiosity with tales of Hef offering her drugs and her less than friendly relationship with co-star Kendra Wilkinson.
While Holly stole many hearts as the sweet and ditzy Playmate vying for Hef’s affections (and bed) on Girls Next Door, her book paints a less rosy picture of what went on behind closed doors. Not surprisingly, not everyone (I’m looking at you, Hef!) is on board with her recollections of her Playboy mansion past. As Holly hopes for a successful book toured topped off with a potential movie adaptation, Hef is defending himself against some of her accusations.
In her book, Holly claimed Hugh offered her “thigh opener” drugs the first time he met her. Creepy, right? Yet, despite the warning signs, Holly stayed the night and moved into the mansion a few weeks later. A decision which led to years of verbal and emotional abuse.
The wait is almost over. Holly Madison‘s book, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, hits stores June 23rd. I fully admit that I have already pre-ordered the Kindle version. Holly was (still is) my favorite from The Girls Next Door.
“I’m excited to finally share my story and what I have learned from my personal experiences both inside and outside of the Playboy Mansion,” Holly said when she announced Down The Rabbit Hole in March. “I think my stories will surprise people and I’m looking forward to lifting the veil of mystique and clearing up the misconceptions so often associated with my life.”
Former ‘Girls Next Door‘ star Holly Madison is going to be a mom!
Holly confirmed the news with People that she and her boyfriend Pasquale Rotella are expecting a baby together. Holly’s bundle of joy is due to arrive sometime in March of 2013.
Earlier this summer Holly had shared that she was determined to become a mom. “Definitely being with the right guy has a lot to do with it. My relationship is awesome. I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my personal life.”
Holly’s beau is the founder of Electric Daisy Carnival and CEO of Insomniac Events in Las Vegas. This might be a bit of a stressful time for Holly and Pasquale as he is in the midst of a legal battle, possibly facing 13 years in prison for malfeasance. Hopefully they will get his court matters cleared up and can focus on their upcoming arrival.
Who’s excited for the premiere of former Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson‘s latest reality show, Kendra On Top? It’s surprisingly not based on Kendra’s sex tape that was leaked a few years ago, but is instead focused on Kendra building her “brand.” Another lesson in marketing 101 from a reality show. How original. The network describes the show like this:
The series will focus on Wilkinson as she “gets her groove back,”
and works diligently to balance family, work and her personal ambitions.
KENDRA ON TOP from Prometheus Entertainment began production last month and
