Touted as a less-than-fairytale account of life in the mansion, Holly Madison’s book, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, brings to light the darker side of life with Hugh Hefner.
“…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,” said a press release for the book.
“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.”
Holly Madison’s book will also provides details about vying for the attention of the man of the house with the “girls next door” living in the mansion.
