Why Holly Madison really left the Playboy Mansion — and her response to Kendra Wilkinson’s ‘gross’ tweets

Holly Madison is rising above her feud with Hugh Hefner’s other ex-girlfriend, Kendra Wilkinson.

The Vegas Diaries author stopped by Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy on Monday and reacted to Wilkinson’s tweets calling her the Playboy magnate’s “clean-up girl” after she criticized life inside his mansion in her last book.

“I didn’t really get emotional about it,” said Madison, 36. “Obviously I could go on Twitter and say just as many vulgar things about her, but what is that going to do for me? Nothing. I wasn’t talking about her. She was reacting to a headline, which was a headline I wasn’t thrilled about.”

“She’s not in my life anymore and I don’t really comment back,” she added. “I was there a long time before she was, so I saw a lot of things she never saw, too. … If she wanted to react to the book once that’s fine, but it’s like, it’s a year later. I’m not even talking about it anymore really.”

Madison, who was one of Hefner’s live-in girlfriends from 2001-08, explained that she’s dealt with “slut-shaming” since she was a child.

“I mean, it’s gross but … I’m used to it,” she said of Wilkinson’s tweets, which she’s since deleted. “I have my suspicions of where this is coming from, and it’s all really hypocritical, and I just don’t feel like I want to lower myself and go there and really respond in any way other than, ‘I wish you the best, bye.'”

In SirusXM interviews Friday, Wilkinson, 30, argued that deciding to date Hefner was a choice that women like herself made willingly.

Madison — who is expecting her second child with husband Pasquale Rotella — said she realized she wasn’t really in love with Hefner after all the other girlfriends were out of the picture.

“I always blamed the other girls for the problems. I was always like, ‘Well, this relationship isn’t what I want, and it’s because all these girls are so mean, and if they were just gone it would be okay. If it was just me and him, we would be like this happy old couple that watches movies all the time,'” she said. “Then I got scared, and I realized this is not what I wanted at all. … I was seeing more of his personality that didn’t necessarily mesh with mine, and I was like, ‘I can’t do this, I have to get out of here now.'”

Still, Madison has nothing to say to him now.

“I feel like I don’t really care. And I don’t mean that in a callous way,” she said. “But even after I left the mansion, I realized this person I cared about was so much an invention in my head.”
