The Bunny-Themed Drama Will Never, Ever Stop
This shouldn’t not come us a surprise to you — this is a fact that should actually be as familiar to you as your own middle name or Kim Kardashian‘s measurements — but people love drama. And when that drama concerns hot women who are frequently naked in a sexual manner, well, people will eat that up like candy. That is the reason why Holly Madison will now and forever trash Hugh Hefner and her time at the Playboy Mansion.
We’re not complaining, because if we had to pick a team in this whole mess, we’d pick Holly’s. Like, yeah, it would be cool if she’d stop giving us so many visuals about orgies centering around Hugh Hefner, but she has such an important message to share. And oh, share she did on Oprah Winfrey‘s show, “Oprah: Where Are They Now?”
Holly explains that she moved into the Mansion because she’d always wanted to “make it” and have “a life full of adventure,” and when she was invited to a Playboy party, everything “was really glamorous.” But when she learned the reality of what it was going to be like for her there — don’t make us recount the tales of orgies and drugs and awfulness — she said “it was really traumatic for me in a way I wasn’t prepared for.” She apparently planned to just stay there for a while to “get back on my feet,” but then she ended up feeling trapped because of the public perception of her. A sad story, for sure.
The thing is, though, that it’s such a common story. Well, except for certain parts, like the part where Holly says she was about to leave and saw a folder that Hugh had left out that revealed he was leaving her $3 million in his will, that’s not so common, but at its heart, Holly’s experiences are not so unique. Think about it: she got down on her luck, got what she thought was an amazing opportunity and a chance at fame and fortune, but when she took it she soon realized it was a mistake, then became depressed because she felt like things would never change. How could anyone possibly fault her for that? Is she somehow not allowed to make bad choices? Should she not share her experiences in hopes that others might learn from them? Should she not be paid for, you know, work?
We’d tell Holly to keep right on taking down Hugh and his creep machine, but somehow we feel like she’s got this locked down pretty well.
