When they said they were always going to be friends, these four really meant it. Holly Madison has a very big cheering section as she competes on Dancing With The Stars – it includes her ex-boyfriend Hugh Hefner, Bridget Marquardt, and Kendra Wilkinson. In fact, it was Hef who told his ex about her last minute role on DWTS.
“I called her and gave her the news on Monday,” Hef said. “She had a week to prepare, less than a week.”
Holly’s other GND co-stars Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt are also supporting Holly.
Bridget said, “I know she has tenacity. I know she’ll stick with it and give it her all.”
Kendra added that she was “jealous” of Holly’s stint on DWTS, and thinks that because Holly is a “quick learner,” she will bring a lot to the table.
Hef also got a little philosophical about how their relationship has turned out. “It’s remarkable when you think about, the beginning of that relationship with all three of the girls and the beginning of the television show and then to have it all come to with everyone I’m so proud of them.” Hef also said he voted for Holly “many times.” Check out our gallery of all that Hef and the girls have been through over the years!
