Holly Madison: Hugh Hefner’s new girlfriend is a clone of me

playboy playmate 030509
PopEater has the advance details of an interview with former “Girl Next Door” Holly Madison that’s set to grace the upcoming issue of Life & Style. I’ve always liked Holly despite her piss poor taste in men. She seemed to genuinely cared for Hef, judging from their interactions on that show, and just comes across as a nice person. Madison tells Life & Style some funny stories about herself, and I particularly like the one about how she had to wait to have sex with her boyfriend because she didn’t want him to know she stuffed her bra. She talks about her boob job and nose job, and says she felt under pressure to look a certain way for Hef. “If you look at Hef’s girlfriend now, she basically looks like a clone of me,” Holly says. Does she think he got a younger, cheaper imitation?

On her pre-plastic surgery body: “I always stuffed my bra. In fact, I had a boyfriend for years, and we moved so slowly. We didn’t have sex for a long time because I had to gradually bring down my bra size so he wouldn’t find out I stuffed my bra!”

On her issues with confidence: “Living with Hef brought down my self-esteem a lot. I was comparing myself to the other girls… You have to look a certain way at the mansion. If you look at Hef’s girlfriend now, she basically looks like a clone of me. It’s kind of weird.”

On going under the knife: “When I was younger, I was the first person in my class to start getting boobs, so I thought I was going to be huge. But I stopped growing before everybody else started. That was a big letdown… I compared myself to those [Playboy playmates]. I knew what I wanted to look like and was kind of disappointed. I had a butt and no boobs.”

“Plastic surgery made it easier for me to get things I wanted in my career. Without it, I wouldn’t be where I am today… My nose photographed really big in front of my face. If I wanted to do anything in the entertainment industry, I needed to get it fixed. I was definitely happy with the results. It made me more confident. And a lot of doors open when you look a certain way.”

On future enhancements: “I wouldn’t consider more surgery – unless my body implodes after I have kids! And I’m scared of getting stuff [like Botox] put into my face. It makes you look like you have a rubber mask on. Beauty is truly on the inside. Looks don’t define you – they’re just a tool to get what you want.”

[From PopEater]

It’s easy to say things like “beauty is on the inside” when you’re under thirty, have had plenty of plastic surgery, and were lovely enough never to need it. At least Holly is honest about the work she’s had done. She’s previously said that she felt old at a then-28 when she left the mansion, and that she was worried that the new younger women were going to take advantage of Hef. The old Playboy magnate definitely has a type. He was hanging out with a brunette Ukranian model for a short time while he was transitioning out of his last set of girlfriends, but that didn’t last at all. His new girlfriends, 22 year-old San Diego State coed Crystal Harris and 19 year-old twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon, are all bleached blondes. The good news is that we can assume that Holly is saying that her lookalike Crystal is Hugh’s girlfriend, which implies that he isn’t getting up to much with the convicted felon twins.

I feel like Life & Style would have sold more copies if they put Holly front and center. Shiloh is cute and all, but she’s just a little kid. How much is there to say about her? At least with Holly you know you’re getting some super-candid talk and it’s not all conjecture based on paparazzi photos. Holly’s career hasn’t been exactly flourishing since she left Hefner, though. She was on Dancing with The Stars and has been been starring in a topless Vegas revue called Peepshow. Hugh’s other ex girlfriends have been faring a little better. Kendra has her own reality show and Bridget had starred on her own show on the Travel Channel. Maybe some new opportunities will come Holly’s way with this latest round of press.

Crystal Harris is shown on 8/27/09, 6/9/09, and 5/2/09. Holly Madison is shown on 7/13/09, 7/5/09, 6/25/09, and 6/2/09. Credit: WENN.com

    newsflash heidi: ALL of hugh’s girfriends are clones of one another.

  2. QB says:

    No, Holly she is not a clone of you because you did not look like that when you started to date Hefner , you became what Hefner wandted his girlfriends to look.

    The new girl just had the look he wanted before becoming his GF.

  3. Ameia says:

    The first comment is EXACTLY what I was going to post. So I guess I’m not the only one observing that.

  4. Praise St. Angie! says:

    ha, bros you beat me to it! And I see Ameia feels the same way!!!

  5. maddie says:

    newsflash heidi: ALL of hugh’s girfriends are clones of one another.

    With the exception of Barbi Benton, who I think is the only “girlfriend” he truly loved.

  6. Tess says:

    Ancient Chinese Proverb (Holly take heed):

    Becoming a sexualized caricature limits career choices.

  7. Naomi says:

    Absolutely, Holly looked nothing like this before she hooked up with Hef. I happen to think that Crystal looks way hotter than Holly. Holly is also full of crap when she claims she won’t have any futur enhancements. Bullshit! As soon as her looks start to fade, Holly will be the first one back under the knife, because without her looks, SHE IS NOTHING!

  8. bros says:

    hah, i couldnt even get her name right. heidi, holly, whatever. heidi looks like holly looks like every other blond bimbo in town.

  9. fizXgirl314 says:

    I can’t believe this chick still doesn’t get it and thinks she was more special to Hefner or somehow stood out from the other blond bimbos he dated… she seriously needs to reel in the ego…

    They are all products to be used for advertising/marketing and advance the bottom line.

    If they believe they count, possibly another look at the parade = )

    (If you want to be believed, do something believable = )

  11. Vermithrax says:

    Pot, kettle, black, reversed, flipped around and multiplied since the dawn of that rag. Welcome to reality Holly.

  12. Sassy says:

    If you look at the 6th picture where she’s in a bikini, you can see stretch marks right under the bikini.

  13. fizXgirl314 says:

    “And a lot of doors open when you look a certain way.”

    This is thankfully not true… some doors MAY open but you are definitely shutting a lot of others out when you package yourself like a product… doors that could have opened with some hard work and perseverance and would have provided for a more fulfilling lifestyle… but then, I might be projecting here since I wouldn’t want to be remembered the world over as some old fart’s bimbo… maybe some people are into that whole thing…:/

    Sassy, and not only does she have some massive stretch marks, but she looks like she gained a lot of weight. kinda sad when you build your whole image and career on your looks. the minute you have a cheeseburger and it’s all over… :/

  14. maddie says:

    Picture 7 doesn’t Hefner look like he was just propped up their between his “girlfriends”.

    He looks really bad.

  15. fizXgirl314 says:

    ‘Beauty is truly on the inside. Looks don’t define you – they’re just a tool to get what you want.”

    this comment makes me depressed to be a woman. Ok, I’m gonna stop reading her interview before I cause major damage to my laptop out of frustration…

  16. Debbie says:

    The new one looks more like Bridget than Holly!

  17. Michelle says:

    And we’re supposed to care… because?

    Holly’s another untalented skeeze whose fifteen minutes are long gone.

  18. ash says:

    Yeah nice try Holly, but no.

    She actually looks like a sluttier Sienna Miller – HEYO.

  19. Jag says:

    The new one does look more like Bridget.

    I will say that I love that Holly has stretch marks and still wears a bikini. That means there’s hope for me. lol

  20. Jessica says:

    She actually looks more like the other one.. not the one that is preggo now, the other one..

  21. Blackwood says:

    Holly seems genuinely nice and honest in this interview, but I think she missed on the mark when she said Crystal looked like her clone.
    lol, what I thought as soon I saw the picture: that Crystal was Bridget. Maybe Hef liked her type more.
    Which I can understand, since to me Bridget was always the most beautiful one out of the 3, maybe because she looked more natural than the others.

  22. Katyusha says:

    @ Sassy

    Sweet!! I have those, too!

  23. TaylorB says:

    I am with Debbie, Jag, and Jessica the new one looks more like Bridget.

  24. Sassy says:

    yep, so do I, and in exactly that same spot….I feel so much better now…:) lol

    Couldn’t have said it better. The only one I believe will fair well in this whole thing is Bridgette. She has a degree and tried to take other opporotunities outside of E and appearing nude. She, like Kendra, also hasn’t bitten the hand that fed her.

  26. Hieronymus Grex says:

    go away already.

  27. Ruby Red Lips says:

    well if your blonde and fake and plastered in make-up your hardly individial…what does she expect!!??

  28. erin says:

    I think Kendra’s going to come out ahead when it’s all said and done. Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches was just Bridget prancing around in bikinis, and she’s getting too old to keep that up much longer. Now Kendra’s got the marriage and motherhood dynamic going for her, not just sex appeal.

    Whaaaaat are you serious!!! She has stretch marks, she should be fined! :)

  30. Aimee says:

    Holly is MUCH prettier than that chick.

  31. abigail7881 says:

    Picture #4 looks like dina lohan! I had to really look at it and compare pics to realize it’s not.

  32. sweetashunE says:

    you are all soo jealous. why are you making those mean comments about holly. take a look at yourselves you all have flaws. if you dont care about looks then you shouldnt care how she looks. everyone even YOU do something to make yourself look or feel better about yourself its human nature. if you wear make up dye your hair paint your nails or do anything to alter your appearance then you are doing the same as her your trying in some way to make yourself more appealing. why should you make nasty comments about someone who has done nothing to harm you? she makes a living out of being pretty is that a crime NO you should be ashamed calling her fake and being cruel to someone you dont even know she a human being and she has probably done more with her life than half of you. if you go around making fun of other peoples appearances then what does that say about you?
