Holly Madison Reveals What An Asshole Hugh Hefner Actually Is

I feel like no one would be surprised to learn that Hugh Hefner is a terrible human being who preys upon young, vulnerable girls to further his own sick fantasies, right? Well, Holly Madison, one of his former Playmates, has revealed some disturbing details from her time with Hefner to reiterate that fact, and it’s pretty terrible. In her new memoir, Madison recalls being offered drugs, suffering emotional abuse and manipulation at Hefner’s hands.

The exclusive excerpts, which are featured in the cover story for the new issue of Us Weekly, include Madison’s recollection of the first time she met Hef in August 2001.

“‘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,” Madison wrote in her memoir.

After she declined the drugs, “Hef did not miss a beat: ‘Okay, that’s good,’ he said, nonchalantly. ‘Usually, I don’t approve of drugs, but you know, in the ‘70s they used to call these pills thigh openers.’

“I want to scream ‘PAUSE!’ and freeze-frame that moment of my life. I want to grab that young girl, shake her back into reality and scream, ‘What the hell are you thinking?’” Madison continued.

She ended up spending that night at the Mansion and moved in several weeks later. Though she wrote that there were constantly changing alliances between the girls in the house, Madison later discovered that there was one person controlling them all.

“I learned Hef was the manipulator and that he pitted us against one another,” she noted. “I realized I wasn’t treated well. I’m done being afraid of people. I don’t have any loyalty to Hef. I haven’t talked to him in four years, so there’s no reason to reach out now. Besides, it’s the truth.”

Madison thankfully never signed a non-disclosure agreement, allowing her to leave no stone unturned when penning her memoir. In the sections released to Us, Madison recounts Hefner’s painful emotional abuse she endured when she deigned to get a haircut or wear red lipstick.

When she finally had had enough and decided to move out, the Playboy Enterprises founder tried one last tactic to get her to stay — putting her in his will.

“It was there, in black and white,” she wrote. “The will stated that $3,000,000 would be bestowed to Holly Madison at the time of his death (provided I still lived in the Mansion). At the time, it was more money than I’d ever know what to do with… But I didn’t want it. I actually pitied him for stooping to that level. I couldn’t help but be offended. Did he really think he could buy me? I put the folder back on the bed just as I had found it and never breathed a word of it.”

Well, that’s… something. I’m not at all surprised, as I said, and I actually expected much worse (and I’m sure there IS much worse in the book). Why does anyone think Hugh Hefner is a good person? DOES anyone think that?

Here’s Kate Moss As a Playboy Bunny

Kate Moss decided to help Hugh Hefner get it up for the 60th anniversary of Playboy, so she donned a bunny suit and did her best sexy poses for the magazine’s special issue. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott took the pictures, which are… I don’t know, kinda boring? I think they’re supposed to highlight the classy and refined side of Playboy, so maybe that’s the point.

In any case, we’ve already had a sneak peak of the shoot, but now we’ve got all the pictures. Now that you’ve got a more complete picture, what do you think? Still boring? Surprisingly refined?

Hugh Hefner And His Wife Went As Robin Thicke And Miley Cyrus And It’s Kind Of Horryfing

Hugh Hefner and wife Crystal went as Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus for what I can only assume is a Halloween party and not a roleplaying thing. That’s great, Hef, let’s give Thicke more to brag about.

First Mr. Hefner tweeted this:

Before tweeting the ever-so-charming twerking photo above. When is everyone else going to get over this? And Hef, really? Repurposing a jail uniform instead of a Beetlejuice suit? Come on now. At least Crystal’s trying.

What are YOU going to be for Halloween?

Over 1,000 Women Have Had Hugh Hefner Inside Them

hugh hefner

I hope you’re not eating your lunch right now, because you’ll probably lose it after this one. Hugh Hefner, Mr. Playboy himself, has revealed that he’s slept with over 1,000 women. Gag me. In an interview with Esquire, the 86-year-old said that while he’s now married to 26-year-old Crystal Harris and plans to remain faithful, he had to make sure he “kept his hand in” (I don’t want to think about what) when he was single.

“How could I possibly know? Over a thousand, I’m sure,” the mogul says of the number of ladies he’s taken to bed. “There were chunks of my life when I was married, and when I was married I never cheated. But I made up for it when I wasn’t married. You have to keep your hand in.”

Nope. I mean, I know Hugh Hefner wasn’t always old, but he has always been a bit skeevy, hence the founding of Playboy to begin with. He pays women to live in his house and get on top of him when he wants a little action. If that doesn’t seem weird to you, then we grew up in very different ways. On the other hand, the Playboy bunnies seem pretty happy making bank and riding an old dude and my feminist side doesn’t look down upon sex workers, so everyone knock yourselves out, I guess. But I still think it says something when your own wife – 60 years your junior – would rather play board games than be intimate with you.

Kendra Wilkinson Wanted to Kill Crystal Harris For Hurting Hugh Hefner

Kendra Wilkinson used to lay it on Hugh Hefner in a naked way back in her Playboy days and they’ve remained good friends since all the sexin’ stopped. So Kendra was none too pleased when Pepaw’s now-wife Crystal Harris left him at the altar the first time they were due to get married. In fact, she was so pissed about it, she actually wanted to kill the 26-year-old.

From Montana’s Big J Radio Show (via DigitalSpy):

“I got pissed off when she hurt him and he can’t go around thinking that people will automatically love her, especially after that. That pissed everybody off, that she would just leave him and dump him, use him and abuse him.

“Of course, someone like me, I wanted to kill her. So now he’s trying to get people to love her again.”

I don’t know if anyone will ever really love Crystal Harris (or Hugh Hefner, for that matter). I’m all for love across the generations, but considering wifey would rather play Uno than have sex with her husband less than a year after they married, I doubt there’s a deep soul connection there.

And yo, Kendra needs to get it together. Is Crystal “using and abusing” Hugh for his truckloads of cash? Most likely. But uh, isn’t he using her for her youthful lady bits? It all ain’t right.

Crystal Harris Is Super Happy That Hugh Hefner Would Rather Play Cards Than Have Sex


It’s been less than a year since Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris finally tied the knot (after she unsuccessfully tried to run away) and to everyone’s shock, I’m sure, 26-year-old Crystal isn’t so keen on having sex with her 86-year-old husband. While she could only say “no comment” when asked if they are intimate, she did seem way too relieved as she explained that Hef would rather play board games than do the nasty.

From HuffPost Live:

“I feel like since Hef is older now and he’s had… the phases of all the girlfriends and all that kind of stuff… I feel now is more, you know, like cuddling up and watching a movie or playing backgammon. We play Uno with the girls.”

Crystal also backtracked a bit on her previous comments that the Playboy mogul is a “two second man“, blaming it on a bad publicist and probably the truth since he’s old as dirt.

“When I first left, I did some interviews I shouldn’t have done. I was mad. It was a breakup, and I shouldn’t have done some of the things. At the time I had a bad publicist, so things did get switched and turned around.”

Well, okay. I can’t really talk about this much more because I just ate lunch and I might vomit even thinking of Hef’s wrinkly ass going at it with anyone, let alone a girl young enough to be his granddaughter, but I think Crystal has said all there is to say, anyway.
