Description

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 Door

A 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.

    Being a fan of the show 'The Girls Next Door', it was amazing to read the real story on what actually went on when the cameras was not rolling. Holly is a wonderful girl and I loved reading her story.
  • The gossips the only interesting part!

    It was only the gossip and play boy stuff that makes this book. As soon as she talked about her new venture peep show or hollys world in the second half I was skipping paragraphs. I found the feeling Holly wanted to the reader to feel sorry for her but I ended up feeling she was fake and self indulgent.
  • Amazing!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. There are aspects of the book (with the other playmates) where I felt she is less forth coming about her unpleasant behaviour to girls, focusing mainly on their relentless abuse. However the book comes across honest and engaging. I couldn't put it down. Anyone familiar with abusive relationships will understand that Holly's with Hefner was a classic case of psychological abuse. So pleased for her that she found her self worth.
  • Loved it!
