Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt Launch Their New Podcast Next Level Girls on Monday, where they plan to talk about the behind-the-scenes drama of E! Show girls next door. But before taking the plunge, Hugh Hefner’s ex-girlfriends devoted an episode to their relationship with the playboy founder. Aptly titled “In the Bedroom…” Madison and Marquardt talk about their first time sleeping with Hefner and, spoiler alert, it wasn’t very romantic.
“Everyone wanted to get this over with ASAP. None of the women were interested in this, sorry to burst the bubble,” Madison shared. “We thought of it as a chore we had to do, or else we’d be kicked out of the house and everyone just wanted this to go away as quickly as possible.”
Marquardt, 48, slept with Hefner for the first time after a night out with him and other girls. She called the encounter, which lasted about a minute, “disappointing and embarrassing”.
“So embarrassing,” agreed Madison, 42. She became one of Hefner’s girlfriends at age 21. They dated from 2001 to 2008.
“I can’t explain to you guys how embarrassing this whole routine was, especially since we got on the road later when there would be, like, a lot of conflict with the other girls,” Madison continued. “You’re literally sitting naked having sex in front of a bunch of people who hate you and talk shit about you while you’re having sex and you can hear. It was just, like, hell.”
“There’s definitely no romance involved,” Marquardt added. She and Hefner split in 2009 after seven years together.
Madison shared her story (again) about sleeping with Hefner for the first time. It happened after one night in Los Angeles and she was “wasted as fuck”. When they returned to the mansion, the girls went upstairs to Hefner’s room and showered before continuing with their “routine”.

“I go to bed, the other new girl is already lying there,” Madison shared. “There are vibrators for everyone. I’ve never used a vibrator in my life. So I’m lying around waiting for everyone.”
Madison said a woman, whom they call “The Recruiter” on the podcast since they don’t reveal her real name, called out to Hefner.
“The Recruiter says… ‘Dad… Do you want to get the new girl?'” Madison recalled, noting that “everyone used to call [Hefner] ‘Daddy’ in the room that’s so gross.”
“I’m not fucking you, next thing I know he’s all over me,” Madison continued. “Later, things would get so routine, like, he wouldn’t move. He’d be like a rooster on the log in the middle of the bed.”
“The Recruiter” gave Madison pajamas and she moved into the Playboy Mansion shortly after that night. Madison went on to be Hefner’s #1 girlfriend and starred in The girls next door with Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson from 2005 to 2009.
Madison and Marquardt remembered how disgusting Hefner’s room was.
“I was shocked by the mess,” Marquardt shared. “We went in and it was a disaster in there. The lights were off, but there were two giant TV screens showing porn… There’s so much crap.”
Marquardt also noted how there were “vibrators all over the bed”.
Madison called the lair “hoarding style”.
“Imagine thinking that you’re this big player and you’re bringing all these girls home, and your room looks like shit,” she continued. “It’s like the weird, eccentric millionaire version of the guy with the mattress on the floor and a pulp Fiction Poster.”
Madison called the experience “traumatic”, noting that she felt “so gross and so used”. Marquardt explained how she “felt guilty” and “hit herself” for a while after becoming intimate with Hefner. She eventually moved into the house and signed on to do the show.
Next Level Girls releases new episodes every Monday. Next week, they’ll talk about “the age of mean girls” at the mansion.
