Dirty Deets from The #1 Playboy Bunny (ft. Holly Madison)
This week, Father Cooper is joined by an ICONIC guest, former playmate, Holly Madison. During her 20s, Holly entered the Playboy mansion and became one of the many girlfriends of Hugh Hefner, the infamous founder of Playboy magazine. Holly walks the daddy gang through her childhood and relationship with her family, as well as the struggles she experienced internally and socially that eventually led her to not only become a Playboy bunny, but to join the inner circle of women exclusively intimate with Heff, who at the time was 74. Holly’s truth about life in the mansion is radically different than how it was portrayed on the successful reality show, ‘The Girls Next Door.’ Strict curfews, clothing allowances, plastic surgery funds, love bombing, cult behavior, verbal and emotional abuse, were all creatively promoted as the never-ending party for the elite due to the manipulative disguise of one man’s money and power. Holly Madison, who went on to build an amazing career (headlining the Peep Show in Vegas, securing a spot on Dancing with the Stars, and becoming a New York Times #1 best selling author), shares her journey of battling through depression and repression in a misogynistic era, and although navigating through the most difficult time in her life, shows the strength of not only someone who survived, but thrived and did not allow a powerful and wealthy man to tear her down.
