Ex-Playmate Holly Madison: I Don't Let Hugh Hefner 'Have Emotional Control Over Me'
Hugh Hefner's onetime top bunny, Holly Madison, is opening up about her war of words with the other outspoken former Playboy Bunny, Kendra Wilkinson.
"It's too bad things couldn't end up better, but there's too many egos involved for it to end up any other way, I think!" she told INSIDE EDITION’s Steven Fabian.
In her new book, Down the Rabbit Hole, Madison calls Wilkinson "the fakest person I've ever met,” saying, "I don't miss her."
“First of all, it's hilarious. It's obvious Kendra has not read the book. Kendra was never somebody I was able to be close to," she said.
Hefner himself was also dismissive of the claims in Madison's book. Madison wrote that he wasn't much of a lover, and she calls him emotionally abusive.
'Sadly, there are a few who have chosen to rewrite history in an attempt to stay in the spotlight," said Hefner.
Fabian asked Madison, "Did that hurt your feelings?"
Madison said, “It didn’t hurt my feelings. I don't let him have emotional or mental control over me anymore. I've let all that go. I didn't write the book as a form of revenge.”
She grew up in Oregon and Alaska before moving to L.A., where she modeled and worked at Hooters. She met Hefner at a club when she was 21. He was 75.
"I think my darkest moments were just feeling really depressed and suicidal, and wondering why I made the decision I did to move into the mansion. Once I made that decision, I felt really judged, and [was] kind of afraid to go back into the real world," she said.
Despite the firestorm over her new book, Madison said she has no regrets. "I thank God every day that I left the mansion because my life is amazing," she said.
