Digital News Report- It’s official; all three of the Girl’s Next Door have split with Hugh Hefner and moved out of the Mansion. They left one by one over the past few months and rumors instantly began flying about the troubles in paradise. Hugh Hefner is known for his steady stream of blondes by his side, but their reality show The Girl’s Next Door have caused fans to become particularly attached to Holly, Bridget, and Kendra. Hef already has two new blondes clinging on his arm who just happen to be 19-year-old twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon.
Holly was the first to leave and probably the most shocking to fans. Holly has been with him for over seven years and has been referred to as Hef’s “number one girl.” On The Girl’s Next Door, Holly often hinted about wanting to marry Hef and have children, but Hef has been quoted as saying, “I think [Holly and I are] going to be together the rest of my life, but marriage isn’t part of my puzzle. It’s not a personal thing; I just haven’t had much luck with marriages.” In October 2008 it was confirmed that the couple had split and Holly soon began dating magician Criss Angel.
In a recent US Weekly interview, Kendra stated that she had to sneak out of the mansion on occasion to “have sex,” due to rarely having a moment alone with Hef. She left the Mansion shortly after Holly. She issued an apology and told E! News “I’m very sorry to have hurt Hef.” She has apparently even dropped by the Mansion to apologize in person. Kendra is now engaged to Hank Baskett, of the Philadelphia Eagles and has stated that she will start planning the wedding shortly after he comes out to California after the Super Bowl.
Bridget Marquardt is the most recent girlfriend to fly the coup. She told US Weekly “I was actually thinking about it for awhile.” She added, “Hef and I have a really special relationship. This all has nothing to do with my feelings for Hef. I care about him very much. It’s just a good time for me to become my own person.” Their split seems somewhat more amicable than the drama with Holly and Kendra. She has told People, “He’s so excited for me and happy for me. Hef says if I want to come back to the mansion and bring a date, that’s no problem.”
All of the girl’s are signed up and fully committed for a sixth season. Bridget even has her own show to look forward to, Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches, which will begin airing on the Travel Channel March 12 at 10 p.m.
