Quotes

[spoken tongue-in-cheek]
Holly Madison: I don't get jealous of other girls, because I was... raised in a cloning lab to be the perfect woman for Hugh M. Hefner, so, other than the fact that my I.Q.'s probably a little higher than he would like, I have nothing to worry about.

Get over it...
11 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Girls Next Door is funny light hearted television, in a not so funny light hearted world. I'm not quite sure the world of television has been entirely up to par in the past few years anyhow.

Is it thought provoking, and life altering? Maybe not, but it's just fun to watch. Sometimes, and some days you just need some light hearted entertainment.

If you don't agree with the show, or the participants then just turn the channel or hand yourself over to those DVD's you're so happy to own. Don't belittle other's successes (even if they aren't your notion of success). It's just TV, not brain surgery.
