Once upon a time Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett and Holly Madison were roommates, chummily living the high life as two of Hugh Hefner 's three main squeezes. The surreal party ended when Holly, and then Kendra, moved out of the Playboy Mansion in , but both seemingly remained close to Hef, with Kendra even marrying Hank Baskett at her historic former residence in I never did that!
Look away, look away! But was it Holly's recollection in Down the Rabbit Hole of Hef "being the manipulator" who "pitted" Holly, Kendra and Bridget Marquardt against each other the real tipping point in their relationship? From what it sounds like now, there wasn't that much of a relationship to maintain in the first place. It's very awkward. She probably wants to distance herself from that situation. God bless her, she should. It's embarrassing because I saw some things that she probably doesn't want me to talk about.
It's far more likely, however, that Holly had her experience, Kendra had hers—and neither is lying as far as either one honestly believes. I wanted different things in life," Holly told the Chicago Tribune in November , about two months after she left him and the Playboy Mansion life behind. Hef will always be my best friend and I will always care about him so much, but he's very routine and he likes his life the way he likes it.
I just feel like I needed to grow and do something different with my life. At the time, Hefner said he didn't realize how much she had been affected by him telling her, about six months beforehand, that he didn't plan on marrying again or having more children.
He also said he was blindsided by the abrupt end of their relationship. Quite frankly, we thought when the time came, we would make a combined statement and we expected that combined statement would be somewhere in the weeks and months ahead. Stars Who Posed Nude for Playboy.
I kind of didn't want to put a generic statement out there, like, 'Congratulations! She added, " KendraWilkinson hughhefner I agree!!! I'm so glad you said something, Kendra!! She needs to quit attention-seeking! Neither Kendra nor Holly was in attendance. And when it came time for Holly to tie the knot with Pasquale Rotella in , they picked Disneyland to hold their nuptials—and Kendra was not a member of the wedding.
Hefner's public reaction to Holly's book was this statement: "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'm happy for her that she wrote the book.
It is crazy. We haven't had a falling out or anything. We just haven't talked. But Kendra whose reunion with Bridget just aired on Kendra on Top last week immediately had all sorts of things to say about Down the Rabbit Hole. In response to that , Holly told E! News , "I don't know what she has against me.
I think she's just still very much a part of the Playboy fold and she didn't experience exactly what I experienced when I was there. At the end of the day, I wish her the best. Presumably—in addition to wanting to protect Hef as both a friend and, as she has since pointed out many times in calling Holly out, as the man who gave her a career—Kendra took issue with being called fake. In fact, who knows if she would have ever reacted the way she did if Holly hadn't written that.
