Holly Madison Kendra Wilkinson Feud: Book ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ Sheds Light On Bitter Relationship
Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson feud and the story goes viral. Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriends are not pals, according to the Holly’s World star’s memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole, which will be released on June 23.
Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson were never friends, despite working together for years. The two television personalities dated Hugh Hefner at the same time and became huge celebrities after appearing in The Girls Next Door from 2005 to 2009.
Madison, 35, is releasing a book next week and the passages about Wilkinson are grabbing headlines. The Oregon native is going hard after her ex-colleague. Madison calls Wilkinson “the fakest person I’ve ever met.”
“Despite my attempts to befriend Kendra, she continued to push me away. Hungry from her own ‘team,’ Kendra desperately tried to make each new Playmate who arrived at the mansion her friend—and her friend alone”
The wife of businessman Pasquale Rotella shared why Wilkinson had trouble adjusting to life in the Playboy Mansion. Madison said:
“At 19 years old, Kendra was stuck with a 9 p.m. curfew, a 78-year-old boyfriend, and a stricter set of rules than she had ever had at home. And now, adding insult to injury, she was finally realizing that she wasn’t as special as Hef made her believe. She was just another blond girlfriend—and life at the mansion wasn’t all she imagined it to be.”
Holly Madison believes that Kendra Wilkinson tried to rewrite her story after leaving Hefner. Madison stated:
“In Kendra’s book Sliding into Home, she describes Hef asking her to be a girlfriend and handing her a house key before he invited her up to the bedroom. Now, I don’t know if Kendra is trying to sound extra-desirable, innocent, or if her memory is just super rusty, but of course that’s not how it really went down. Hef isn’t stupid. He never asked anyone to become a girlfriend before they joined him in bed. And he never made a habit of carrying around extra sets of room keys.”
The mother of one also talked about the breaking point in her relationship with Hank Baskett‘s wife. Madison added:
“Kendra had apparently given an interview to a tabloid explaining that she wasn’t friends with either of us [herself and Bridget Marquardt, Hef’s third girlfriend at the time] as if she were somehow better than everyone else… Of course I wasn’t going to stoop to her level and address this only on social media, so I decided to text her how I truly felt: that she was a coward and that she tried to act like the ‘real’ girl on TV, but she’s the fakest person I’ve ever met—and that if she had a problem with me, she should have confronted me like an adult instead of just going silent.”
The book does not leave much room for reconciliation, Madison concludes:
“After that, I deleted her number from my phone. Kendra and I haven’t spoken since, and I have to say, I don’t miss her.”
It seems that Baskett‘s wife is addressing the feud in one of her most recent Instagram uploads. A quote posted by the Kendra On Top star reads:
“If people are trying to bring you DOWN,it only means that you’re above them.”
