A&E's explosive 10-part docuseries 'Secrets of Playboy' aired its premiere on January 24 and already sends a shiver down the spine. Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner's main girlfriend from 2001-2008, featured heavily in the second hour and opened up about why "getting into the Playboy world was a dangerous choice."
"I feel like on 'Girls Next Door,' Hef was portrayed as a kindly grandpa but that's not how he is," said Madison. "It would make me so angry how manipulative he was. Hef controlled every aspect of our life." She details the first time they had sex, which was "mechanical and robotic" and "gross to me how Hef didn't want to use protection," and talked about how he would pit the women against each other so that they were easier to control.
While there are opinions shared from those in Hefner's circle claiming that all the women could have simply left, Madison revealed why she felt she couldn't: "If I left, there was just this mountain of revenge porn just waiting to come out," she said. "When you would go out with Hef, he's taking all types of naked pictures of these women when they're wasted out of their minds. It's just gross."
