Holly Madison Reveals What An Asshole Hugh Hefner Actually Is

down the rabbit hole holly madison

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?

Iggy Azalea Is Sorry She’s A Racist Homophobe

iggy azalea

So, Iggy Azalea has already had to cancel her tour since no one wants to pay to see her stupid ass, but it seems the world’s “no, thank you” response extends to free occasions, as well, as she’s now pulled out of her scheduled performance at Pittsburgh Pride because, you know, she’s said way too much racist and homophobic bullshit in her day for people to be happy about that gig.

Things got so bad that even Pittsburgh City Council President Bruce Kraus spoke out against Iggy’s inclusion and groups started pulling out from the Pride festivities over it. So, Iggy had to pull out, and this is the message she posted to her “fans” (how she still has them is beyond me) on Twitter:

iggy azalea pittsburgh pride

Okay, whatever. If you want a full archive of some of the bullshit that’s come out of this girl’s mouth (fingertips), here ya go. Don’t say I didn’t warn you your brain cells will die.

Even ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Screenwriter Kelly Marcel Won’t Watch The Movie

fifty shades of grey

We all know Fifty Shades of Grey is a disaster. The books were terrible, the movie was even worse (if that’s even possible), and if that wasn’t clear before, it will be now: turns out Kelly Marcel, the screenwriter who worked on the movie, won’t even watch the finished product because it’s just that awful. Marcel hated the experience of working on it so much, that’s why EL James handed the job over to her husband for the sequel.

Here’s what Marcel had to say to Bret Easton Ellis on his podcast this week (via US Weekly):

“I very much wanted to do something different with the screenplay, and when I spoke to the studio and the producers and made that quite clear, they were very enthusiastic about that and kind of loved the things I wanted to do,” she explained. “When I delivered that script was when I realized that all of them saying, ‘Yeah, absolutely this is what we want,’ and, ‘You can write anything you like and get crazy and artistic with it’ — that was utter, utter bulls–t.”

“My heart really was broken by that process, I really mean it,” Marcel continued. “I don’t see it out of any kind of bitterness or anger or anything like that. I just don’t feel like I can watch it without feeling some pain about how different it is to what I initially wrote.”

Why am I not surprised? The fact that Fifty Shades is even a thing is sad enough on its own, but to know that they couldn’t even try to put lipstick on a pig, so to speak, with a good script is even more pathetic.

Chris Brown Still Loves Karrueche Tran, Apparently

chris brown

You can say a lot of shit about Chris Brown (and believe me, I have and would love to say more), but I think we all have to admit that this asshole has balls of steel. Never has someone lacked self-awareness in such grandiose ways than Chris, despite having his actions repeatedly pointed out to him. Any criticism seems to go flying over his head, and the ability to self-assess his behavior and learn from past experiences just seems… well, pretty impossible to the guy. With that in mind, it’s no wonder that he so brazenly talks so much utter shit on a daily basis and totally expects everyone to take him seriously.

His latest foray into public speaking is about Karrueche Tran. You know, the ex-girlfriend he’s treated like scum, cheated on repeatedly, publicly humiliated, verbally/emotionally/mentally/god knows what other ways abused (I know she’s not the smartest for going back, but that doesn’t make it her fault). Of course, just because he’s done all this doesn’t mean he doesn’t still “love” her! Of course he does!

Their latest relationship ended since he secretly fathered a child with another woman, but as Chris explained on On Air With Ryan Seacrest (via E! Online) it’s complicated!

“I’m going to be honest and be a man about it and just take it one day at a time,” Brown confessed. “I can’t promise anything and I can’t jump over the moon, but it takes time for all wounds [to heal]. I take full responsibility for my actions and things that I’ve done in the past. I feel like it’s just a time thing.”

“I’m not a hateful person,” he continued. “Of course I still love her, but mentally right now, I think everything takes time. I just need to focus on being the best father I can be.”

“There comes a time when people kind of have to grow up and become more of an adult and take on different responsibilities,” he spilled. “I think this was just a blessing in disguise with my daughter because I get a chance to look at her and teach her the right path and also be a father in my daughter’s life.”

He continued, “Just to see a smile on her face—just to see the littlest things—is emotional for me, so I just love that aspect of being able to be a father now.

LOL, yes, everyone, “it’s a time thing”. I feel terrible for that poor child who’s going to grow up with Chris Brown as a father. Sorry, but I’m not believing the doting daddy bullshit. And maybe if you’re so interested in concentrating on your kid, you shouldn’t be trying to attack another man for taking a woman you’re not even with out on a date?

Khloe Kardashian Slams Liposuction Rumors From The Gym

khloe-kardashian-435

Khloe Kardashian has been looking a bit… different lately. Thinner but with a much, much bigger ass, to be exact – and this has led to speculation that she may have had liposuction to make it happen. Khloe didn’t take too kindly to the accusations, despite the fact that her family is well known for their propensity for cosmetic procedures. She set the record straight on social media, as the Kardashians do, while also at the gym (clearly not working out if she’s tweeting):

I mean, to be fair, maybe she DID do this naturally. She is at the gym an awful lot (she’s right – she’s photographed coming and going from there pretty often) and we are all being awful. But I dunno – no butt is naturally shaped like that. It’s just not, right? It shouldn’t matter either way, of course, whether she paid for it or earned it in the gym, but I think a little honesty is always a good policy.

Charlie Sheen Calls 911 Over Extreme Food Poisoning

charlie sheen

The last time we heard from Charlie Sheen, he was defending Brian Williams’ honour and clearly hitting the narcotics pretty hard again. It seems that may have been behind his call to 911 on Monday night, as a case of extreme food poisoning overtook him and he had to be rushed to hospital.

From TMZ:

Charlie Sheen had a medical emergency Monday night … paramedics were called to his home after getting a call the actor had a bad case of food poisoning.

We’re told Charlie (or one of his people) called the fire department directly at around 11:00 PM Monday. It’s curious why they didn’t call 911 directly, which by the way, automatically records the conversation.

Sheen’s people tell TMZ it was nothing more than a really, really bad case of food poisoning and the actor was treated in his home and that was that.

TMZ updated their report with more details shortly after, saying that Sheen had been complaining of chest pain and he was treated for dehydration before being released from hospital roughly 90 minutes after arriving.

Stay off the drugs, kids. Let Charlie Sheen be your example.

Miley Cyrus Came Out As Bisexual At 14

miley cyrus

Miley Cyrus has publicly dated men throughout her career, but a few months ago she let slip that she’s had sexual relationships with women, as well, and didn’t feel like it was a big deal. Now, in her new Paper mag feature (yeah, the one where she poses naked on the cover with a giant pig), she’s opening up about just how long she’s known she’s attracted to women, and turns out, it goes all the way back to her early teenage years.

“I remember telling her I admire women in a different way. And [my mom] asked me what that meant. And I said, I love them. I love them like I love boys. And it was so hard for her to understand. She didn’t want me to be judged and she didn’t want me to go to hell. But she believes in me more than she believes in any god. I just asked for her to accept me. And she has.”

“I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn’t involve an animal and everyone is of age, Everything that’s legal, I’m down with. Yo, I’m down with any adult — anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me. I don’t relate to being boy or girl, and I don’t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl. As long as you’re not hurting anyone, your choices are your choices.”

I know this is all a bit of a mess, but I do love that Miley pointed out consent – I know it seems silly, and out of nowhere, but she seems like she really has a handle on what she’s doing, in a lot of ways. Do I think she’ll always be like this? Of course not. She’s really young and she’s got endless money and opportunity, so she’s just trying shit out because it feels good. However, she seems to be aware that other people and their feelings are important, so I really can’t hate on the girl.

There’s some serious nudity behind the cut (the other photos from the shoot), so NSFW alert and all that.
