As we’ve been telling you for the past few months, there’s trouble in the house of Playboy. According to sources, Hugh Hefner and his lead lady Holly Madison have finally split after having been on the rocks for a little while now, and its all do to the arrival of a set of twins who’ve just moved into the house.
Since Holly moved into the mansion seven years ago, she’s undergone quite the transformation. Check out our photo gallery of Holly to see how she’s changed, both physically and otherwise, throughout her relationship with Hef. [Getty Images]
Following confirming her split with Hugh Hefner to a TMZ photographer, Holly Madison has taken to her blog to speak about the break-up in her own words. Holly posted the following message today on her MySpace blog:
What’s Going on . . . .
Current mood: lonely
Hef and I care about each other immensely and will always be best friends . . . I do have my own place, but I am still at the Mansion, too, right now . . . I’m too busy to move even if I wanted to! hahaha . . . Bridget, Kendra and I are all still best friends and plan on doing several projects together in the future . . . even though Bridget is in Europe right now and I am sad and lonely without her . . .
You will see how it all happens in Season 5 . . . Sunday nights on E! . . . How lame, I just turned that into the most shameless plug ever . . . lol!
Hef’s former #1 girl failed to mention how she feels about those new twin replacements, however![Photo:Getty]
According to an interview with James Franco in the Daily Mirror, Sean Penn followed their first kiss on the set of Milk by texting ex-wife Madonna, noting “I just popped my cherry kissing a guy. I thought of you. I don’t know why.” We’ve got some theories:
- Penn hasn’t forgiven Madonna for making out with Britney Spears in 2003 despite never consenting to a three-way during their marriage.
- Penn has been leaving Madonna messages about who he just made out it with ever since their divorce almost twenty years ago, hoping against hope she will jealously return to him.
- Before their marriage in 1985, Sean Penn had never kissed a woman.
- James Franco uses the same lip balm as Madonna.
- Madonna tastes like a dude.
Whatever the reason, Scandalist thinks it’s awesome that the tabloid sweethearts of the late 80’s are still in touch after all these years. Check out the flashback gallery below and dream of a sequel to Shanghai Surprise.
Last week the tumultuous relationship of actress LisaRay and her estranged hubby/Prime Minister of Turks and Caicos Michael Misnick came to a head when the two feuding lovers allegedly bit each other after an altercation at their home. The chaotic couple subsequently aired their dirty laundry by releasing statements to the press with each one blaming the other for the incident. Now, of course, LisaRay is featured in Essence magazine showing off her alleged bite marks from her husband. Ouch!
Following his bizarre impromptu press conference with photographers on Saturday, John Mayer headed into celebrity favorite Latin American restaurant La Esquina in downtown New York City. Witnesses told Scandalist that “John appeared stoic and kept his hoodie on the entire time while he hung out with friends,” inside the underground hotspot. “He was quiet and did not talk much and seemed out of it,” before leaving at about 12:30 am. Maybe he got in all his talking for the day when he rambled on to the paparazzi earlier about just being, “a man who ended a relationship” and revealed that he is “going through something that’s a very personal thing.” [Photo:Getty]
Bourne bombshell Julia Stiles may not be taking her break-up with artist Jonathan Kramer very well. According to Page Six, Stiles was annoyed by a group taking photos of themselves near her at a Manhattan restaurant recently, snapping “bye, guys! – glad you got your pictures!” as they left. Stiles’ rep swears she wasn’t being sarcastic, but who would earnestly announce their joy over a fellow diner’s Flickr addition? Certainly not Kat Stratford. [Page Six]

Emily Robison of the Dixie Chicks has divorced singer/songwriter Charlie Robison after nine years of marriage, due to “discord or conflict of personalities.” According to a representative, the Robisons “remain close friends and their family is the priority and will continue to be.” The couple have three children: Charles Augustus (age 5), and twins Julianna Tex and Henry Benjmain (age 3). Charlie was a judge on the first season of Nashville Star and his brother, Bruce Robison, wrote the Chicks’ #1 country single, “Travelin’ Soldier.” [San Antonio Express-News]

Matt Damon and Minnie Driver fell in love while the rest of the world was going gaga over their surprise 1997 hit, Good Will Hunting. But while Matt’s character chases after Minnie at the end of that mushy flick, their actual affair ended awkwardly and abruptly when he denied having a girlfriend during an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
After her man confessed in front of millions that their relationship was amicably over (and had been for a couple of weeks), Minnie milked her newfound rep as the woman scorned, referencing Damon’s dumping in interviews and telling The Los Angeles Times, “It’s unfortunate that Matt went on Oprah. It seemed like a good forum for him to announce to the world that we were no longer together, which I found fantastically inappropriate.”
Even less appropriate was Matt jumping in bed with Winona “Sticky Fingers” Ryder just weeks later. Will Hunting may have been good, but the guy who played him was a straight-up bad boy.
Unlike most rappers, Eminem has never felt the need to pretend his romantic life consists solely of anonymous sex with an ever-growing stable of hoes. The megastar has been a one-woman man for most his life, and he’s not afraid to say her name: Kim. He’s also not afraid to brutally murder her in song and beat a blow-up doll of her on stage. What can you say? He’s a heart-on-his-sleeve kind of guy.
The couple first met as young teenagers in 1989, and had a daughter, Hailie Jade, five years later. But the couple didn’t marry until after the release of his breakthrough album, 1999’s The Slim Shady LP. Despite the album’s “’97 Bonnie & Clyde,” in which Eminem takes his daughter to a lake to help dump her mother’s dead body, Kim hoped marrying would keep him faithful on tour. It didn’t. But it wasn’t until after 2000’s “Kim,” a prequel to “Bonnie” which described his wife’s murder in gory detail (“bleed, bitch, bleed!”), that their family drama made headlines.
Angelina Jolie, eh? She has tattoos. And sex. With a lot of different people. Billy Bob Thornton. Some other dudes. Possibly her brother. The list goes on and on and on. So when Jolie was cast opposite Brad Pitt in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, bedsprings were expected to be sprung.
Brad had never been so vulnerable. His marriage to Jennifer Aniston was crumbling. The aging himbo wanted kids; the nipply Friend did not. Pitt, an architecture nut, also had become obsessive about building the couple’s new house. It was enough to make a girl listen to some John Mayer records.
With trouble at home, and Jolie’s penchant for shtupping anything with a pulse, it was inevitable there would be some in-trailer hosing going on, on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. In 2005, the Pitt-Aniston five-year union ended in divorce.
Brad and Angelina are now embarked on their plan to adopt the entire world one child at a time. Jennifer has been working out her single’s issues with a succession of men including unfunny party-harder Vince Vaughn and that Mayer guy. Magazines fret nonstop over her inability to move on. But that’s okay. We haven’t either. — Charles Bottomley
