UPDATE (6/22/2015): Holly Madison was quick to rebut those comments made by Playboy head honcho Hugh Hefner earlier today. “It wasn’t about having an ax to grind or wanting to get a reaction from him [Hefner], or, you know, inviting him back into my life in any way,”; Holly says about her motivations for the new book. “I don’t really care about his response. I wanted to share my story to inspire other women who might be in a bad relationship to get out, or not be branded by bad decisions they’ve made, and take charge of their lives and move on. … I’m definitely not rewriting history. I’m finally telling the truth of my experience. For so many years I tried so hard to be a good girlfriend, and I cared about him and always had his back.”;
After being accused of abuse at the Playboy Mansion, Hugh has stepped in to debunk any and all allegations made towards him and his business by former Playboy Star, Holly Madison.
In her new book Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny (hits shelves June 23rd, 2015), Madison opens up about her experience as a Bunny in the Playboy Mansion. She reveals that the mansion wasn’t all bunny ears and rainbows but rather a place of verbal and emotional abuse. Calling Hef a “manipulator’, she accuses the 89-year-old businessman of being the cause of fights and alliances made between the girls in the house.
Madison says she wants her daughter Rainbow to read the book one day. “I want her to understand why I made the choices I made,” she told Us Magazine. “And hopefully learn from them and not make stupid mistakes herself.”
Recently Hef responded to the accusations made. “Over the course of my life I’ve had more than my fair share of romantic relationships with wonderful women. Many moved on to live happy, healthy and productive lives and I’m pleased to say remain dear friends today. Sadly, there are a few who have chosen to rewrite history in an attempt to stay in the spotlight. I guess, as the old saying goes: You can’t win ’em all!”;
