The Girls Next Door


EXCLUSIVE: Hugh Hefner Entering His Brunette Period?

Amid rumors that the Girls Next Door romance among Hugh Hefner and girlfriends Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson, and Bridget Marquardt is on the rocks, Hef has reportedly been shopping around for some new bunnies. The qualifications to be one of Hef’s lovely ladies have drastically changed, however, and according to our inside source, being blonde is no longer a requirement. A source reveals exclusively to Scandalist that on Sunday at the exclusive “Fun In The Sun” party at the Playboy Mansion, “Hef was chatting up two brunettes for hours!”

Holly And Hef: Together Or Not?

Last Saturday, we learned from an inside source that Hugh Hefner‘s main girlfriend Holly Madison is supposedly doing the hanky panky with magician Criss Angel, and is preparing to move out of the Playboy Mansion. Some of you questioned the accuracy of our intel, and we’re trying to get to the bottom of it. Here’s the latest.

Not Together:
Holly Madison had lunch with Chris Ameruoso yesterday at Juliano’s Raw restaurant in Santa Monica. In case you didn’t know, Ameruoso, according to the Interwebs, is a celebrity pet photographer, and Holly contributes to his magazine, PAWprint. But Ameruoso is also an actor on Criss Angel’s show, Mindfreak. We know it’s a stretch, but could Ameruoso be the link between a Holly/Angel hook up?

Holly took to her MySpace page yesterday (thanks Lezzy McGuire) and posted an item called “Random Rumor(s) of the week”:

Hef and I are not breaking up, either. We are PIC (Partners in Crime, lol, Kendra came up with that one). We are wrapping up Season 5 of the Girls Next Door and are looking forward to filming a Season 6.

Season 6, huh? We’ll see. [Photos: Splash News Online]


At The Playboy Mansion, Everything’s Going To Hell

This weekend, Scandalist exclusively reported that Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner‘s main squeeze, is breaking up with him and moving out of the Playboy Mansion because she apparently fell under the spell of magician Criss Angel. Hugh, our inside source said, is looking to replace all three Playmates on The Girls Next Door immediately. We’re taking Kendra Wilkinson‘s new hairdo as confirmation that our source is correct.

Why else would she have showed up at a pre-VMA party for Tag Records wearing a mousy brown wig? Isn’t that like Judas betraying Jesus with a kiss on the cheek? Hasn’t Hef strictly forbidden his women to be anything but platinum blonde? What’s next? A breast reduction? A brain implant? Something is definitely awry at Hefner’s house. [Photo: Getty Images]


EXCLUSIVE: Dumped By Holly, Hugh Hefner Seeks Girls Next Door Replacements

Amid rumors that Hugh Hefner‘s main squeeze Holly Madison has been hooking up with another major playboy (magician Criss Angel), a Playboy Mansion insider not only confirmed that the rumors are indeed true, but also exclusively told Scandalist that Holly is leaving him. “[Holly] told Hef that she is moving out of the mansion and breaking off their relationship,” said our source as we were hunting for gossip at MTV’s VMAs.

Wait! There’s even bigger news … Because Bridget and Kendra are intending to leave to pursue their own careers, Hef is looking to replace all three bombshells from Girls Next Door. “Hef is actively seeking three new girls to replace them immediately,” said our source.

Could it be true? Holly always seemed to be the most loyal and devoted to Hef. Has Criss Angel worked his magic on yet another Hollywood lady — making her disappear from her long-term relationship with Hef?

Wedding Bells For Hugh Hefner?

The twice married Hugh Hefner might be walking down the bunny covered isle again. According to Hef’s second girlfriend Bridget Marquart, the next season of The Girls Next Door will feature a “huge wedding.” The third time could be a charm for the 82 year old and his #1 lady Holly Madison. Bridget was reportedly overheard spilling secrets by saying that fellow girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson will be moving out of the Playboy Mansion once season five wraps. “She said they will be moving on since Holly is Hef’s main girlfriend,” a source tells OK!. Reportedly, Holly is also getting more involved with the magazine. Don’t worry about Bridget and Kendra’s welfare, because there won’t be any homeless bunnies on the street. As previously reported, Bridget and Kendra have plans of their own. [Photo: WireImage]
