Holly Madison is an American Playboy model, showgirl, and reality TV star with a net worth of $16 million. Holly Madison is probably best known for her connection to Hugh Hefner and Playboy magazine, even though she was never a Playboy Playmate. She did, however, bare all more than once for the magazine. After living in the Playboy mansion for a number of years, she wrote several books about what really goes on there. Madison is also popular on reality TV.
Holly Madison Early Life
On December 23, 1979, Holly Cullen gave birth to Holly Madison. She was born in Astoria, Oregon, but when she was two years old, she moved with her family to the small town of Craig on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. She moved back to Oregon with her family when she was in middle school. She went to high school in the town of St. Helens.
She went to the University of Portland for two years after high school and studied theatre and psychology. After that, she went to Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. At this point, Madison’s tuition costs were starting to add up, so she became a model for Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion and started working as a waitress at Hooters.
Holly Madison Career
As Madison’s career as a model and waitress grew, when she was 21 she was invited to the Playboy Mansion. Over the next year, she got to know Hugh Hefner better and went to see him more. Her money problems kept getting worse, and at one point, she had so much credit card debt that she was close to being homeless. She asked Hugh Hefner for permission to live in the Playboy Mansion when she was 22 years old, and he gave it to her.
What came next was a little bit of everything. Hugh Hefner now had control over almost every part of Holly’s life. She wasn’t allowed to work outside of the mansion, and every girl who lived there, including Madison, had to be in bed by 9 p.m. Hefner is also said to have controlled her money. Holly has also said that after she moved in, she felt pressured to get plastic surgery so that she could do well in the entertainment business. In 2001, she had surgery to make her breasts bigger, and in 2003, she had surgery to make her nose smaller.
On the other hand, Madison got new chances when she moved into the Playboy Mansion and met Hugh Hefner. After a number of girls left the mansion, Holly became Hefner’s new “number one girl” in 2002. She was basically his girlfriend and closest partner in the mansion. In 2003, she started to be on The Girls Next Door, a reality TV show that gave viewers a look inside the Playboy Mansion. Holly Madison was also a big part of the show, which looked at her personality and her life. This helped her get a lot of attention.
