Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt blast Kendra Wilkinson for lying about her stay in Playboy mansion
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt have cleared the air on the claims made about them in Kendra Wilkinson's 2010 book 'Sliding Into Home'. The trio had appeared on E!'s hit reality show 'Girls Next Door' in 2005.
Over the years, all of them have spoken about their issues with one another, which was the result of Madison and Wilkinson's memoirs. While speaking about Wilkinson's book on the 'Girls Next Level' podcast, Madison said that she didn't read it until "2014-2015" when she was writing her own memoir.
According to Newsweek, a lawyer allegedly told Madison that the way she portrayed Wilkinson moving in wasn't the way it was written in her memoir. The 42 year old said, "So I looked at Kendra's book, and then I got f***king pissed. Because I saw everything that she had said about us that was just untrue."
Wilkinson's memoir notes that she was invited to stay at the Playboy Mansion after meeting the magazine's late founder and editor-in-chief, Hugh Hefner. After she was dropped off, Wilkinson claimed no one showed her around, which Madison said was not true.
The ladies said that Marquardt, 48, gave her the tour and that for Wilkinson to enter the guesthouse, visitors needed a key. Madison said, "Then she says that Hef(ner) offered her Room 2, and she said and when Bridget found out, Bridget freaked out and said, 'Room 2, that's gonna be my scrapbook room!'"
Marquardt, who hasn't read Wilkinson's book, said, "Oh my god, could you imagine?" She further pointed out that Room 2 was a "huge room," and that Hefner had to pay "rent" on each room. Marquardt said, "so to think for one second that I'd be able to use this giant room as my scrapbooking room is comical."
Madison said it was "weird" Wilkinson remembered a small detail like the room number but didn't recollect Marquardt giving her a tour. On a different occasion, Wilkinson had said that Madison and Marquardt "tattled" on her for seeing other men.
To which Madison said, "I don't remember that at all," and Marquardt replied, "Me either. I don't even think I knew that she was cheating on those early days like that." The 'Girls Next Door' is a reality television series which focuses on the lives of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends who live with him at the Playboy Mansion. The series was created by executive producer Kevin Burns and Hefner, founder of Playboy magazine.
The series first episode was telecasted on August 7, 2005 and ran for 6 seasons. The first five seasons centered around Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson. The sixth and final season premiered on October 11, 2009 and introduced Hefner's new girlfriends, Crystal Harris, who eventually went on to marry Hefner, and twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon.
The success of the series was followed by several spin-offs, including 'Kendra and Holly's World'.
