Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison Feuding-Haven’t Talked in Four Years
Former Girls Next Door Kendra Wilkinson Baskett and Holly Madison once shared a bedroom and Hugh Hefner but have been feuding ever since vacating the Playboy Mansion with Holly claiming they have not spoken in four years.
Holly is dishing about her time in the Playboy mansion in her upcoming tell-all Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny. Proving the old adage hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, Holly skewers Hefner but also manages to throw a few barbs Kendra’s way.
Holly met Kendra along with a third Playboy Playmate Bridget Marquardt at the infamous mansion. Despite Hefner’s reputation for an aversion to drugs, Holly accuses him of offering her quaaludes when they first met referring to them as “thigh openers.” Did Hef really need quaaludes with all of the half-naked wanna-be models and actresses roaming around the mansion?
According to Holly’s version, Kendra was all about getting ahead and not about the friendships. Kendra, now not so happily married to NFL player, Hank Baskett, wrote her own account of needing the help of substances to sleep with Hef, something Holly seems to echo though at times she seems to be struggling with wanting it to have meant more than just a dirty old man with his latest blondes.
Miserable with the arrangement and coming to see Hefner as a “controlling manipulator,” Holly considered suicide but ultimately decided to leave. He tried to keep her there, she says, by offering to leave $3 million to her in his will with the condition that she remain in the mansion. She claims to have left the written contract on the bed before walking out never saying a word. Until now.
That’s when it hit with Kendra. Holly remained in touch with Bridget but Kendra put major distance between them, angering Holly who decided to clear the air in a text, because besties who’ve shared a bed and a man text to clear the air. Her text also seemed less like an olive branch and more like throwing a match at a can of gasoline. Calling her a “coward” and “the fakest person” ever, Holly said she was “hurt and confused” by the falling out.
What was Kendra’s response to Holly? “WHO ARE YOU???? I DON’T EVEN KNOW YOU! WE WERE NEVER FRIENDS. IT WAS ALL JUST WORK.”
All just work? If sex was part of the contract and Kendra is calling it just work, does that technically make it prostitution? Maybe not. Holly claimed the sought after prize was the centerfold. Bothered by what she perceived as Kendra, “using us for publicity when she needed it,” Holly deleted Kendra’s number from her phone and never spoke to her after that. She writes,” And I have to say, I don’t miss her.”
As much as I love a juicy tell-all, and what better setting than the Playboy Mansion, it is sad to think of young girls sleeping with a man in his 80s hoping for fame and fortune, though there is nothing new about the casting couch scenario. If a man, famous for being surrounded by naked women, invites you to share his bed with other women and film a reality show about it, is there any girl in the world naive enough to think it is about friendships and true love?
Holly was replaced before she even made it out of the mansion and she’s exacting her revenge with her cautionary tale. What do you think about her book? Was Kendra the fakest person ever or just someone looking for her way up? Tell us what you think here at Haveuheard.
