Bridget Marquardt is reportedly supporting Holly Madison as she goes on her book tour even as Madison battles it out with former co-star and Playboy housemate Kendra Wilkinson.

Marquardt has stayed relatively silent throughout the drama that has ensued following Madison's book release, which details her time at the Playboy Mansion and reveals the scandalous goings-on behind closed doors. But Bridget recently took to Twitter to congratulate Holly on her appearance on Oprah's Where Are They Now?, where she reportedly talked about the $3 million "bribe" Hugh Hefner tried to give her when he realized she was leaving the mansion.

Bridget, Holly, and Kendra were all considered Hef's "girlfriends" in the mid 2000's, and all lived under the same roof with various other Playmates. However, Holly and Hef seemed to have a closer relationship, which was documented on the reality show Girls Next Door, and when she decided she wanted out of the Playboy life to marry someone else, she says Hugh left his will out where she could see that he'd left her $3 million.

“Hef and I started hitting kind of a rocky patch when it became clear that Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson were leaving, they were moving on to new things. I just had enough and just realized all the delusions I’d been under and that this was no longer the life for me...It was very clear to me that he’d left that out for me to see, because he was hoping it would change my mind and get me to stay. But it just kinda disgusted me more than anything because all he can do is say, ‘Oh, here, I’m gonna throw you some money to get you to stay.’ It just grossed me out," Madison said on the show.

Marquardt has said that she and Holly have remained friends over the years, but she hasn't spoken to Kendra in a long time.
