Holly Madison hasn't had contact with Hugh Hefner in four years — well, in person. The Girls Next Door alum told Us Weekly exclusively that Hefner used to send her uncalled-for letters long after she left him and the Playboy Mansion behind. "They were all very formal, short letters, and it would usually be in response to something I said in the press," Madison, 35, explained. "At the time I had a TV show [Holly's World] on, so I was doing all kinds of random interviews and [...] »
The girls next door have slammed the door on any chance of reconciliation. In her recently released memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole, Holly Madison alleges that one of Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner's former girlfriends, Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett, is "the fakest person I've ever met." "Despite my attempts to befriend Kendra, she continued to push me away," Madison writes. "Hungry from her own 'team,' Kendra desperately tried to make each new Playmate who arrived at the mansion her friend—and her friend alone." Madison also accused Wilkinson-Baskett of twisting the truth. "In Kendra's book Sliding Into Home, she describes Hef asking her to be a girlfriend »
Holly Madison knows what it's like being in front of the camera. Not only was she one of the stars of E!'s The Girls Next Door, but she also had her own spin-off, Holly's World. But now she needs someone to play her for the cameras. The former Playboy bunny exclusively tells me that she's in talks to turn her new tell-all memoir Down the Rabbit Hole into a TV movie. "We're looking at some options right now," Madison said me while promoting the book. "I think everybody's dream would be to do the big motion picture, but I think even a really well made TV movie would be great, too." As for her ideal casting, "I would pick somebody young because »
For Holly Madison, it wasn't always glitz and glamour inside of the Playboy Mansion. The Girls Next Door alum reveals in her new book, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, that she contemplated suicide while living at the Playboy Mansion as Hugh Hefner's No. 1 girlfriend, according to People magazine. Her "misery" and depression became so consuming that while taking a bath in 2002 she wondered, "If I just put my head under water and take a deep breath in, it would all be over." Although the famous house is surrounded by a luxurious metal gate designed to keep people out and maintain privacy, Madison writes that she felt trapped »
Bruce Jenner’s disclosure in a heavily promoted ABC News interview that he is in the midst of transitioning to a female gender identity comes at a time when TV has heightened interest in transgender life stories.
ABC Family took advantage of the natural tie-in to promote its upcoming docu series “Becoming Us” during Friday’s two-hour “20/20″ special featuring Diane Sawyer’s interview with Jenner, the Olympian and former “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star.
“Becoming Us” revolves around a teenage boy grappling with his father’s transition to a woman. The series premieres June 8 and hails from Ryan Seacrest Prods.
The Discovery Life channel earlier this month launched the unscripted series “New Girls on the Block.” The series focuses on six women in Kansas City, Mo., who are beginning to live openly as transgender. Conveyor Media has produced five hourlong episodes.
Discovery Life’s larger sibling, TLC, is preparing »

Life as one of the "Girls Next Door" wasn't as glamorous as it looked on TV.
Holly Madison, a former Playboy Bunny and star of The Girls Next Door, is set to publish a memoir later this year. Madison revealed the cover for the book, Down the Rabbit Hole, on Instagram this week:
In a press release, publisher Harper Collins said the book looks at some of Madison's darker moments.
"...What seemed like a fairytale life inside the Playboy Mansion—including A-list celebrity parties and her own #1-rated television show for four years—quickly devolved into an oppressive routine of strict rules, manipulation, and battles with ambitious, backstabbing bunnies," the release stated.
"Life inside the notorious Mansion wasn't a dream at all—and quickly became her nightmare. After losing her identity, her sense of self-worth, and her hope for the future, Holly found herself sitting alone in a bathtub contemplating suicide."

It’s not even faint praise to write that The Royals is exactly the kind of scripted drama that one would expect E!, a network notorious for noxious reality trash like The Girls Next Door and Keeping Up with the Kardashians, to make. Dully acted, preposterously written and populated by generically photogenic characters almost as loathsome as E!’s reality “stars,” the series is so train-wreck terrible that it’s difficult to even recommend it for hate-watching.
Peering inside the gates of Buckingham Palace to look at the strange, sordid and thoroughly silly lives of a British royal family (writer-creator Mark Schwahn has been careful with his articles, noting that The Royals isn’t about the actual royal family – because the kind of audience member E! hopes to attract apparently needs »
