“Hugh Hefner gave drugs to women for sex,” says Holly Madison
Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion has been the subject of rumours for years, but an ex-Playmate has finally come forward to speak out against the heinous crimes committed in the ‘gross’ house of seduction.
A new clip from the upcoming A&E docuseries “Secrets of Playboy” features Holly Madison, a former Playboy model and ex-girlfriend of late Hefner. “I felt like I was in the cycle of gross things and I didn’t know what to do,” Madison says.
In a preview for the notorious Playboy empire, which debuts on January 24, Madison revealed the mental and emotional turmoil she endured as a Playmate from 2001 to 2008 under Hefner.. He died in 2017 at the age of 91 from sepsis.
At some point in her life, Madison says she “kind of broke under the pressure and being made to feel like I needed to look exactly like everybody else.”
After six months of living with other blondes, the blonde decided to shave her long golden mane in order to boost her self-esteem.
Hefner, on the other hand, was not a fan of her new appearance.
“I came back with short hair and he flipped out on me. He was screaming at me and said it made me look old, hard and cheap,”
Jonathan Baker, a close friend of Madison’s, corroborated his claims about Hefner’s rage.
“I remember when she cut her hair. He was very unhappy about it. Yup, his world,” said Baker.
“Hef would be pretty abrasive in the way he said things to Holly,” said Bridget Marquardt, another former Playmate .
According to Marquardt, “She came down with red lipstick one time and he flipped out, said he hated red lipstick on girls and [told her] that she needed to take it off right away,”
To put it mildly, it was a constant source of aggravation. There was a lot of drama and anxiety going on. She seemed more depressed and sad, and her demeanour had begun to change as well “She went on.
The mogul’s other Playmate from 1976 to 1981, Sondra Theodore, claimed that “Hef pretended that he was not involved in any hard drug use at the mansion.” “Quaaludes down the line were used for sex. Usually you just took a half [of a Quaalude]. But if you took two, you’d pass out. There was such a seduction, and men knew that they could get girls to do just about anything they wanted if they gave them a Quaalude,” Theodore revealed.
Theodore’s claims that Hefner drugged women were corroborated by Hefner’s former secretary and executive assistant.
What we referred to as “leg spreaders” were quaaludes. That was their entire purpose. Partying necessitated the use of these people, if you will “In Lisa Loving Barrett’s words:
For the duration of his employment at the Playboy Mansion from 1977 to 1989, Barrett admitted to working with Hefner and his executive staff to obtain prescriptions for drugs to keep the web of lust flowing.
It’s possible that some of us would have prescriptions in our names.” For Sondra, Hef, me, and Mary… there was a prescription for each of us. In order to keep track of who was coming and going, we had a desk calendar that read “Sandra,” “Lisa,” or “Hef.” “the ex-assistant revealed
Barrett claimed that the mansion’s drug supply “enabled four or five prescriptions for the same medication to feed the machine.”
More than six decades of sexual assault, drug abuse, prostitution, suicide, and murder have allegedly been documented in the upcoming documentary titled “Secrets of Playboy”.
