Biography

While most Playboy bunnies enjoyed their 15 minutes of fame before vanishing into obscurity, Holly Madison made long strides toward becoming one of the best known faces in the magazine's history. As one-third of "The Girls Next Door" (E! Entertainment, 2005-09), a reality show centered on Hugh Hefner's trio of buxom blonde girlfriends, Madison was the Playboy magazine founder's main squeeze and the Mansion's leading lady. Not taking her fame lightly, Madison also became Playboy's photo editor, co-authored a book with Hefner's other girlfriends Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson, and acted in films such as "House Bunny" (2008) and "Scary Movie 4" (2006). After her relationship with Hefner ended in 2008, Madison went on to compete in season eight of "Dancing With the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ), where she showed everyone that she could survive - and have a career - outside of the Playboy Mansion walls.
