The shocking, never-before-told story of the bizarre world inside the legendary Playboy Mansion—and, finally, the secret truth about the man who holds the key—from one of the few people who truly knows: Hef’s former #1 girlfriend and star of The Girls Next Door

A spontaneous decision at age twenty-one transformed small-town Oregon girl Holly Sue Cullen into Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner’s #1 girlfriend. But like Alice’s journey into Wonderland, after Holly plunged down the rabbit hole, 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. 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.

But instead of ending her life, Holly chose to take charge of it.

In this shockingly candid and surprisingly moving memoir, this thoughtful and introspective woman opens up about life inside the Mansion, the drugs, the sex, the abuse, the infamous parties, and her real behind-the-scenes life with Bridget, Kendra, and, of course, Mr. Playboy himself.

With great courage, Holly shares the details of her subsequent troubled relationship, landing her own successful television series, and the hard work of healing, including her turn on Dancing with the Stars. A cautionary tale and a celebration of personal empowerment, Down the Rabbit Hole reminds us of the importance of fighting for our dreams—and finding the life we deserve.

    I couldn't put this book down from the moment I began reading it. Holly's experience was fascinating and not at all what I would have expected. A surprisingly amazing book which will stay with me for a long time. Well done Holly!
  • Loved it.

    Having been a viewer of the girls next door it's nice to hear the real side of the story. Excellently written and easy to read this book was a great insight to a world very few enter and come out unscathed. Looking forward to any other books written by this author, though by the sounds of it she's too busy living her life to write about it.👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻💖💕💞

    Growing up loving the GND series we never got enough of Holly! You could almost hear her voice as this descriptive book lets you into her thoughts, feelings and the goings on we did not notice while loving these girls on camera. A very relatable Holly let's us into her private world; the ups the downs and the triumphs this book could not just be put down.. I needed to read more! Love it! Cannot wait to read Hollys second book.

  • Not the best

    By Piglart
    I thought this book was going to be a page turner and keep me enthralled but it hasn't. The author goes into way too much detail, it drags on and on. She could have told some of the events in half the time. Way too much detail so much I find it hard to keep focused as I am just bored. Got to page 670 and gave up. Don't bother.
  • What a read!
