The shocking, never-before-told story of the bizarre world inside the legendary Playboy Mansion—and, finally, the secret truth about the man who holds the key—from one of the few people who truly knows: Hef’s former #1 girlfriend and star of The Girls Next DoorA spontaneous decision at age twenty-one transformed small-town Oregon girl Holly Sue Cullen into Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner’s #1 girlfriend. But like Alice’s journey into Wonderland, after Holly plunged down the rabbit hole, what seemed like a fairytale life inside the Playboy Mansion—including A-list celebrity parties and her own #1-rated television show for four years—quickly devolved into an oppressive routine of strict rules, manipulation, and battles with ambitious, backstabbing bunnies. Life inside the notorious Mansion wasn’t a dream at all—and quickly became her nightmare. After losing her identity, her sense of self-worth, and her hope for the future, Holly found herself sitting alone in a bathtub contemplating suicide.But instead of ending her life, Holly chose to take charge of it.In this shockingly candid and surprisingly moving memoir, this thoughtful and introspective woman opens up about life inside the Mansion, the drugs, the sex, the abuse, the infamous parties, and her real behind-the-scenes life with Bridget, Kendra, and, of course, Mr. Playboy himself.With great courage, Holly shares the details of her subsequent troubled relationship, landing her own successful television series, and the hard work of healing, including her turn on Dancing with the Stars. A cautionary tale and a celebration of personal empowerment, Down the Rabbit Hole reminds us of the importance of fighting for our dreams—and finding the life we deserve.

4.0 Review: Down the Rabbit Hole by Holly Madison
I needed a break from the bratty antics of Ramona Quimby, so I picked this book next. Read until 3 am this morning, then picked it back up as I was cooking breakfast. Could not put it down. I admit to being a big fan of the reality tv show The Girls Next Door and Holly's World, which followed the ...

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. If you ever wondered what life as a Playboy Bunny was like, then this is definitely a must read. Sure, at first I thought - Hell, yes!

4.0 Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny
When I was a teenager, I watched The Girls Next Door and although I never did get into the whole reality TV obsession, I did love that program. I was fascinated with their lifestyle, and naive enough to believe that they actually didn't have anything scripted and that their roles on the show were re...

Actual rating, 3.5If you ever caught an episode of the show Girls Next Door, you’d be well aware of the fact that Kendra was the one who wanted to have fun, Bridget was the one who wanted a career, and Holly was the one who cared about Hef…What you may not realise is that these were the roles dictat...
