It appears that life in the Playboy mansion is not all fluff and fun. Holly Madison in her new tell all book reveals how she was so desperate to win Playboy founder, Hugh Hefner’s attention that she almost got pregnant for him. The book also reveals the emotional and physical abuse that the Playboy Bunnies endure.
The 35 year old former Playmate reveals that the desire to have Hefner’s child was an attempt to steal his affection from the other Playboy Bunnies. The book is titled Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny.
She wrote; “I know how absolutely insane it sounds to want to have kids with someone in their 70s. You are basically robbing a child of his or her father before it is even born. Now that I am a mom myself, the idea seems even more unpalatable. I suppose I thought of it as a ticket out – in more ways than one. The last time the mansion had been multiple-girlfriend-free was when Hef was married and had two children.”
She also revealed how he often pitted the girls against each other. According to Us Weekly, Holly admitted that the Playboy mansion wasn’t all bunny outfits and pool parties. She told them that “there were always different political alliances with the girls,” and that “Hef liked to play the main girlfriend off the youngest one to try and create competition.”
Holly is married and has a child, Rainbow Aurora, with her husband Pasquale Rotella.
