Holly Madison and her co-stars investigate the darker side of the playboy way of life. Secrets of Playboys, an upcoming documentary series on the A&E Network, will feature interviews with “colleagues, executives, Playmates and staff from all levels of the brand,” according to the network, who will “tell the whole tale of what life within the Playboys world was actually like.”
In a clip from the show, model Holly Madison, who rose to fame as one of Hefner’s numerous blonde girlfriends from 2001 to 2008, says she “broke” under the pressure of “being made to feel like I needed to look exactly like everyone else” and “being made to feel like I needed to look exactly like everyone else.”
She claimed she had chopped her long hair in an attempt to stand out, but that it had not gone down well.
“[Hefner] had a complete meltdown on me,” she recounted. “He screamed at me, saying it made me seem old, hard, and cheap.” “He said it made me look old, hard, and cheap.”
Jonathan Baker, a friend of Hefner’s, revealed on the video that the mogul was dissatisfied with the transformation. When Baker was asked about the haircut, she answered, “I remember.” “He was really dissatisfied with the situation. Yes, that is his universe.”
There was also discussion of the animosity between Madison and Bridget Marquardt, another girlfriend who costarred with Madison on the E! reality series “The Girls Next Door,” which was based on Hefner’s live-in relationship with them and fellow girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson.
Hef would be harsh in his communication with Holly, according to Marquardt’s observations. “It was quite irritating to have to deal with all of the drama that was going on and the tensions on a daily basis.”
Hefner passed away in 2017 at the age of 91. Playboys has been contacted for comment by CNN, which has not yet responded.
The premiere of “Secrets of Playboy” will air on A&E on January 24th.
