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.

  • Easy read and a powerful story of a woman

    From SydneyI
  • A wonderful read!

    From EmSquared1
    As a fan of GND and then Holly's World, I knew I'd probably like this book. What I wasn't counting on was that I literally could not put this book down and I'm so glad I read it! Holly is a sweet, fun and smart young woman that opens her life for us to catch a behind the scene look into her surreal world that we only caught a (scripted)peek at on E!. She's a survivor and a hard working role model. I'm so happy she's made it out not just ok, but as wonderfully and classy as she has. I wish Holly was my sister.

    From mbjenner
    I purchased this book on a rainy weekend on a whim, hoping for an interesting and easy read. Wow! I could not put this book down! I used to watch GND and did like Holly, but I have to say I love her now! What an awesome real life role model. Loved her honesty, and the fact that there was not a single part of the book that I didn’t find interesting. She is a true inspiration to women, we all make “mistakes” and she had the courage to leave her bad situation. I hope other women learn from this and also find the courage to leave and pursue their dreams as well. All the best to Holly, you go girl!

    From Nina12345123
    Read it pretty fast. Was interesting and Holly shared who she was which many could likely relate to. It was an easy read but I skipped over a lot of boring stuff
