Holly Madison Reveals Hugh Hefner’s Will Had Bribe For Her In It

Holly Madison is now revealing previously unknown details about her time as a girlfriend of Hugh Hefner and living in the Playboy mansion. Holly recently sat down with Oprah, for her show Oprah: Where Are They Now?, and that is when Holly revealed her secrets. People recently shared that Hefner actually added her to his will, but, of course, the couple had to stay together for her to get anything. Holly Madison recently shared that she was disgusted by the fact that he put her in the will in this way.

Madison shared that she knew that Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt were planning to leave. Hefner and Madison were going through a tough time and it sounds like they were at a crossroads in their relationship. Holly Madison said she realized this was not the life for her at all and was actually packing her things to move out of the Playboy Mansion and on with her life. That was when Holly Madison discovered something that would shock her. Madison revealed all to Oprah.

“I found on my side of the bed a folder that he left out, and in his will he left me $3 million. It was very clear that he left that out for me to see because he was hoping I would change my mind and get me to stay, but it just kind of disgusted me more than anything because all he can do was say, ‘Oh, here, I’m going to throw you some money to get you to stay.’ It just grossed me out.”

Back in June, Holly Madison released her new book, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, and in it Madison revealed her side of the story about life in the Playboy Mansion. She stated that she considered suicide and talked about drugs that were passed around in the mansion. Madison took a lot of backlash from people since sharing this information in her book.


Holly Madison says that everything in the book is totally true, regardless of what other people are saying about it. Fellow Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson recently slammed Holly Madison, saying a lot of the accounts in the book are not true at all. People shared that in a recent episode of Kendra On Top, Kendra said that what Holly Madison was saying was completely false. Kendra spoke out about it all.

“She’s living as a fake cartoon, I think. She’s not living on Earth with us. And that’s how it felt, all those years living there. She really played this role. This fantasy type of role. It wasn’t because of Hef. Hef never told her and forced her to do that. Maybe that’s why he didn’t marry her. [sic]”

The end of the episode showed Kendra Wilkinson, as she was about to show up at Holly Madison’s book signing to confront her, but the episode ended before anything happened. Next week, viewers get the chance to see if the confrontation really happens or not.

Holly Madison has since moved on and now has a daughter named Rainbow. Things seem to be going great for her, but that may have changed since her decision to reveal all in her book. Madison and Hefner are no longer in contact, and he is now married to Crystal Harris.
