Holly Madison minus her hunny bunny

TMZ is reporting that Holly Madison has gone to extreme measures to shed her Bunny past as she has recently removed a Playboy tattoo.

Post-Hefner, a slightly less trampy Holly Madison is emerging — because girl’s getting her Playboy tramp stamp removed! Here’s Holly this past weekend at the Wet Republic at the MGM (left), and the same pink bunny tattoo back in ’05 (right). This is one move we can really get behind.


Hugh Hefner Turns 83 and Holly Madison was there!

Hugh Hefner celebrated his 83rd birthday at the Palms Place pool on April 4 surrounded by girlfriends past and present including Holly Madison.  So despite the rumors of there being ill will between the two, that is proving to be untrue.  Hugh Hefner not only helped her get on Dancing with the Stars but now she shows up at his 83rd birthday party in Las Vegas.   Oh and guess what, there will be another season of The Girls Next Door, only this time it will feature his new trio of blondes.

Dressed in a colorful Playboy shirt, white pants, a black sport coat and his signature captain’s hat, Hugh Hefner kicked off a day-long birthday party today at the Palms.

The Playboy magnate will turn 83 years old on Thursday.

The festivities got underway today at 2:30 p.m. as the original playboy made his way to the Palms Place pool where a cheerful Hef partied flanked by girlfriends Crystal Harris, 22, and 19-year-old twin sisters Karissa and Kristina Shannon.

Press and camera crews for The Girls Next Door greeted the birthday boy’s entourage as the group settled into seats on the patio near the pool.

Moments later, the original Girls Next Door, Bridget Marquardt, Kendra Wilkinson and Hef’s former No. 1 squeeze, Holly Madison, came by to say hello.

“I’ve good company. Young people keep me young,” Hefner said. “I get older, but they stay the same.”

Marquardt, Wilkinson and Madison lived with the Playboy icon in his iconic estate, the Playboy Mansion, for over five years before going their separate ways last year.

Now 35, 23 and 29, respectively, the trio has since been replaced by a younger trifecta of blondes.

Marquardt and Wilkinson admitted it was all pretty surreal.

“That used to be us!” Wilkinson remarked, motioning toward Hefner’s three new lady friends.

“You see it from the outside and it’s like, oh my God,” she laughed.

Marquardt agreed. “It’s such a unique situation,” she said.

Yet there was no animosity in the afternoon air as girlfriends past and present joined Hefner to pose for photographers.

Madison, who finished a month-long stint on Dancing With the Stars this week, said photographers are an essential part of any Playboy birthday celebration.

She had her fair share of party planning experience during her tenure as Hef’s No. 1. She said that three things are required for any Hef-related celebration: “Press, Jack and Coke and beautiful women.”

There was no shortage of any of those today at the Palms.

Hefner sipped glasses of Jack Daniels and Coke throughout the afternoon, as he fielded questions from a seemingly endless stream of media.

Meanwhile, a smattering of stunning ladies lingered and mingled nearby.

Former Playboy models Jennifer Pershing, Deanna Brooks, Tiffany Fallon, Hiromi Oshima, Kelly Carrington, Janine Habeck, Alison Waite, Ida Ljundqvist, Stacy Fuson and Patrice Hollis were among those seen enjoying the afternoon sun.

Wilkinson and Marquardt’s significant others, Hank Baskett and Nicholas Carpenter, also attended the party.

“We’re all great friends,” Wilkinson said. Her fiancé agreed and said it’s not awkward at all.

“It’s been very nice getting to know Hef. He’s just down to earth, family-oriented kind of guy,” the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver said.

Baskett said he and Hefner have been friends since the minute they realized they shared not just a woman, but a favorite comic, too.

“It was one of those male bonding moments,” Baskett said. “We‘re both big Flash Gordon fans. … It was like a match made in heaven.”

Wilkinson said she views the collection of former and current boyfriends and girlfriends as “friends and family.”

In fact, Wilkinson and Baskett will tie the knot at the Playboy Mansion on June 27 and Hefner has agreed to walk Wilkinson down the aisle.

She said Saturday’s festivities were “kind of like a birthday party-slash-anniversary” for her and Hefner.

The two met at Hefner’s 78th birthday party five years ago, and Wilkinson said she knew exactly how to mark the occasion: with a card.

“That’s all he likes,” she said. “He likes cards with nice things written in them, and he likes pictures in frames, and he likes candy.”

She said her card carried a simple but heartfelt message.

“I wrote for both of us,” Wilkinson said as she and Baskett linked arms. “I said, ‘Thanks for being such a good friend to Hank and I, we love you so much and, P.S., I miss you’.”

This afternoon’s pool party was just the beginning of Hefner’s birthday extravaganza.

After catching some midday sun, he and his guests retreated indoors to prepare for the night ahead. Before they left, however, the birthday boy shared his plans.

“Once we finish the pool party we’ll be having dinner at N9NE, the restaurant,” he said. After that, the iconic playboy said the crew will move the party upstairs, where they will “spend some time at the Playboy Club and Moon.”

And how does Hugh Hefner end his night of birthday celebrations in Las Vegas?

Hefner said he plans to do it with “a little private gathering in my suite.”

Playboy Beauty Kicked off of Dancing With The Stars

It was just a few weeks ago that we learned Hugh Hefner helped his ex girlfriend get a coveted spot on the popular prime time TV show Dancing with the Stars but despite the support of her famous ex boyfriend, she couldn’t make it through to the end as tonight Holly Madison was eliminated from the competition.  But you know what, that’s okay because if you ask me, she was the hottest fucking chick that show has ever seen.


Here is the full story from Vegas Deluxe.

In the end, it wasn’t the men with the lowest scores who faced the Dancing With the Stars elimination.

Judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman were cruel last night and put Steve-O and Steve Wozniak on the firing line with the lowest scores of the show. But viewers rallied to the two injured men and saved them from elimination this evening after President Barack Obama’s press conference!

Despite their injuries, both will be back next week for the Argentine tango or the lindy hop. Also safe were Julianne Hough and country singer boyfriend Chuck Wicks and The Bachelor’s Melissa Rycroft and pro partner Tony Dovolani.

Instead, in a shocking vote, viewers decided that Denise Richards and her Le Reve partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy should be one of the two duos to face the axe. And for Holly Madison, it became the moment she had dreaded.

In the story, Holly said, “Last week, I escaped the crucial first exit. It was scary because it wasn’t until the last minute they told us we were safe. I was really scared. Every week now, the bottom two will compete in the dance-off. No pressure there! My heart was pounding. That elimination is brutal. I never want to do the dance-offs!”

All day today, Holly and Dmitry rehearsed in case of the inevitable, and the judges noted the improvement and gave them 18 points out of 30. In the nail-biting final seconds, it was left to Denise and Maks — and, amazingly there was such a dramatic improvement, they scored 20 out of 30.

Vegas DeLuxe will have the full report from the dance floor tomorrow morning with a larger explanation of the competition, the voting and the final result — but for The Girls Next Door star and Playboy cover beauty Holly, it was, shockingly, the end of the line!

Updated —

I was told that despite Vegas DeLuxe reporting it being the “end of the line” for Holly Madison from The Girls Next Door, it was in fact Denise Richards removed from the show last night. The official show website says “Denise Richards has been booted from the ballroom! Eleven stars remain to try the Argentine Tango or the Lindy Hop.

Holly Madison Leaves Las Vegas for Hollywood

Speaking of blonde Playboy tartlets, eOnline is now reporting that Hugh Hefner’s former #1 has just signed on to replace Jewel on this season’s dancing with the stars and get this …. Hugh Hefner himself is said to have negotiated the deal.  All of this news of course comes just after the big news that Holly Madison and Criss Angel are no longer together and that she is leaving Las Vegas to move back to LA for her career.  Could this be the career move she dumped Criss Angel for?  Or is all of this yet another publicity stunt to help sagging Playboy profits?


Full Story from eOnline : The question is no longer who will win Dancing With the Stars, but who will survive it?   In a DWTS first, not one but two contestants have been sidelined with injuries before the new season has even aired.  ABC has just confirmed that Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell and singer Jewel will not be a part of the new season due to leg injuries.  O’Dell suffered a twist to her right knee during rehearsals and has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus. Jewel has suffered fractured tibiae in both legs. Ouch, right?

So who will replace the two ladies? We have exclusive confirmation… As our Marc Malkin reported yesterday, inside sources confirm that Holly Madison of E!’s reality series Girls Next Door will be coming on the dance floor this season.  And now, Hugh Hefner himself confirms today to Malkin that his ex-girlfriend Holly has been cast, saying he “made the arrangements” for Madison to replace Jewel on the show.  “It’s a show she’s wanted to be on for a long time,” Hefner tells Malkin. “I’m delighted. It’s all good stuff.”

The other newbie will be announced on the Dancing With the Stars season premiere on Monday night. And according to ABC, Jewel and O’Dell will appear to talk about their injuries.  Sex and the City hunk Gilles Marini also has been diagnosed with tendinitis in his shoulder and groin.  So far, he’s hanging in there.

Is the end near for the girls next door?

“TMZ Has It All Wrong!” says our sources.   Our secret sources deep inside the Playboy Mansion speaks to us about what really goes on behind closed doors!

My attention was first drawn to this story when I had read that the girls next door, who all appear to be the best of friends on their hit E! reality show don’t get along so well.  It seems that, at least according ot the gossip mags, Holly and Kendra are always at each other’s throats and that things are so bad they even have to film around the two fighting because they can’t be in the same room together.  I found this story odd because I had just seen them at an event together and yes they were all three together.  I don’t know something about that just stuck in my mind.  Here is one such story from TMZ stating that the staff at the Mansion hate both Holly and Kendra.

The Girls Next Door

I honestly don’t give all of this much thought until the next story comes out about one of the girls next door and this time it was Kendra Wilkinson.  TMZ had a video clip of Kendra not being able to get into a club right away.  That was really their take on the story but let’s look at that story a little closer.  We notice that it’s late and night and Kendra is arriving at the House of Blues with the rapper known as Lil Wayne.  Notice she arrived with the rapper and his posse and even was shown getting out of the car with him.  The only two females present in the large group were Kendra and her friend.

Other than her initial wave when they exited the car, Kendra tries to stay in the background, basically ignoring the cameras and just talk to her female friend and bitching because she was denied entrance to the club along with about half of the other people that showed up with Lil Wayne.  When she realizes the cameras are on her, she quickly shuts up.  A few minutes later security comes out to find Kendra and brings her in the back door of the club.  The rest of his “posse” is left to stand outside of the club.

Ok now TMZ will have you believe that’s all there was to this story but really is that the case?

We all know that the girls next door have a very early curfew.  So Kendra somehow got permission to break curfew to go on a date with another man?  Interesting.  You can’t say that she wasn’t WITH Lil Wayne because besides her friend they were the only females in the group.

-From The Girls Next Door Website – The girls have a 9pm curfew. They are generally not allowed to be out without Hef past this time unless it’s a special occasion and they gain prior approval.

Let’s jump forward to the next story from TMZ and that is of Holly Madison coming out of her strip aerobic class to tell the cameras that she and Kendra have not been fighting that in fact that very day they were together condo shopping.  The TMZ people want you to believe that someone is moving out but anyone who watches the show knows that Kendra invests the money she makes into real estate and even bought her first condo on the show and said at that time she would continue to invest her money into real estate and buy several more condos in the near future.  So with that we know that TMZ is wrong and that at the very least Holly and Kendra are getting along.

So what is the REAL story over at the mansion?  Someone has to know and as luck would have it, I happen to have a few friends who hang out there far to much and these secret insider sources have this to say about the whole Girls Next Door feud.

Secret Source One on the girls fighting : The girls may have minor quibbles from time to time but who doesn’t? They are together a lot and no doubt get on each others nerves from time to time but I see them when the cameras aren’t rolling and they are all very close, like sisters – sisters who walk around naked all the time sure, but sisters nonetheless.  I’m don’t know why those gossip websites post stories about them fighting, I guess it is what makes the money but I can tell you first hand it’s not true.

Secret Source Two on the everyone hates Holly Madison story : I was really outraged when I read that story about Holly on TMZ.  They have no idea what the fuck they are talking about.  While it is true that Holly has a job as editor of the playmate pictorials, she worked hard to prove herself to get that position and had to learn the ropes before even getting the chance.   As it turns out Holly has a unique insight to what Hef likes when it comes to his Playmates and that is the reason she was given the job.

There may be one or two bitter employees that someone doesn’t know about but for the most part, everyone I’ve seen loves Holly and the work she does.  They all agree she has a unique talent for that kind of work and are glad to have her in the office.  If there is someone at the office bitter of the job Holly was given, it’s just due to their own petty jealousies.  Truth is, Holly has an eye for quality girls and like it or not, she’s damn good at her job.

Secret Source Two on Kendra vs Holly : As far as I know the girls get along well.  Holly and Bridget seem to be the closest with Kendra often making friends with the new, younger incoming Playmates as they seem to have more in common.  Kendra’s a party girl still, she’s younger than the other two.  Holly and Bridget seem to be more focused on their careers and their futures right now. That’s the one major difference you see in the girls.

As far as any direct fights, not really anything big.  I guess, well, ya there was one.  It wasn’t to long ago when a few people at the Mansion overheard Holly berating Kendra for what she termed “inappropriate public behavior” and how it could hurt all of them and cause them to lose what I think she said “the show” but the guy next to me swore she said “everything”.  Either way, it wasn’t clear what behavior Kendra was being yelled at for nor who she was with just that she was told that kind of behavior wasn’t acceptable and she wasn’t to be seen with those people again.

Secret Source One on Kendra vs Holly : I really only know of one big fight they had and that was when Kendra did something stupid but I don’t know what that was.  I know that Holly came down on her like a mother would a child and that probably rubbed Kendra the wrong way.  I couldn’t see who else was in there with them but it was a female and I did overhear some of what they were saying.   I can’t remember enough to quote anything specific but I think it was over Kendra’s partying and missing curfew.  Hef likes the girls to have the public appearance of propriety and wants the girls safely locked in the mansion at a decent hour.  Kendra likes to cut lose sometimes and doesn’t really make curfew all that often.  The girls don’t hate each other though.  They really get along better than my own sisters do.  And after that one big fight they had, they made up and there hasn’t really been any issues like that at the Mansion since.

Secret Source One on Who’s Leaving The Mansion : I don’t think anyone has plans on leaving the Mansion just yet but if I had to place money on who would leave first it would be Bridget but not because of anything bad, just that she has more focus on her career outside of the world of Playboy and that is what I suspect will pull her away.  Otherwise why would they leave?  They are getting a free ride and what a hell of a ride it is.  They would be crazy to walk away from that gravy train.

Secret Source One on the Holly and those socks : I don’t know how that got started but I know that someone told her it looks good and it can be her “trademark” so she’s been wearing those god awful socks every since.  I know several people have tried to subtly hint to her to not wear them anymore but clearly she hasn’t gotten the hint yet.  She thinks because a few people buy them she has a huge fan base that loves her gay ass socks but in reality some people would buy anything with her name attached to it because she’s a beautiful girl and she’s famous.  She just doesn’t seem to understand that and she clearly doesn’t understand how stupid she looks in those socks.

Secret Source One on Sex with Hef : As far as I know the only person to really have that much of an intimate relationship with Hef is Holly.  I really do strongly believe they have sex and I can’t speculate how often but that it seems to be on a regular basis, at least from things I pick up around the Mansion.  I think she really does him but I really don’t know how often and any other particulars about the way they do it.

Secret Source Two on the Mansion staff hating the girls : I don’t see that at all and if they do they hide it VERY VERY VERY well.  I think that at times they no doubt get annoyed by the girls and some of the stupid shit they do and ask the staff to do for them but for the most part everyone at the Mansion really enjoys their job and they know that taking care of the girls is part of that job.  In fact I once overheard a Mansion staffer who’s job is to do grounds maintenance, tell someone that his job was something like a 93 on a scale of 1 to 10.  That he could go get a job anywhere doing what he does but he stays at the Mansion because it’s not just a job it’s a family and his entire life revolved around the work he does there.  And he’s ok with that because he likes having a life that revolves around beautiful naked women. There is a lot that goes on at the Mansion.  It’s a 24 hour kind of thing and it’s run like a 5 star hotel, even though it is technically a private home.  But with so much going on all the time it really does take the organization like it were a fancy hotel and that requires staffing full time, around the clock including executive chefs and butlers and securtiy and someone to keep up with all the animals and groundskeepers and maintenance men and that’s just to keep the house running forget all the other stuff.  I think I read that there were 70 people in all employed just to keep the Mansion running and the associated 5 acres.  So ya with all the goes on in the house I’m sure from time to time a staff member or two gets annoyed at the girls but overall they live to serve them and they take that job very serious.

I would like to thank our secret sources for going on the record with us, even if we have to hide their identity. We didn’t really learn much but we were able to find out is that most of the shit those gossip mags put out is bullshit and that the girls are all hot, but are more like sisters than lesbian lovers and that kind of sucks but hey at least we now know Hef is getting some pussy from at least one of them.
