Holly Madison elaborates on her time as a Playboy Bunny and one of Hugh Hefner’s numerous companions.
During her appearance on Monday’s episode of the “Power: Hugh Hefner” podcast, the “Girls Next Door” star discussed her connection with the late Playboy magazine founder, which lasted from 2001 until 2008.

She explained, “It was really the group part that was very out of my comfort zone.”
Madison isn’t the first person to talk about her experience with Hefner. Her story was previously documented in her 2015 memoir, “Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny,” as well as her 2016 memoir, “Vegas Diaries.”
The model discussed the many house rules they had to obey at the Playboy home in her 2015 book, as well as the alleged verbal and emotional abuse she received from Hefner.
