Admittingly, I too once had dreams of making it "big" – Whether it be at the Playboy mansion, or strutting my stuff on the catwalks of Paris.
Okay – So I don't have to boobs, the height or the face (haha) and dreams we once had as children usually (or in my case, absolutely) become a faded memory.
With that being said, it sure has never stopped me from *wondering* just what does go on "Behind-the-Scenes" of the lives of the Rich and Famous. Join me now for the review of Down the Rabbit Hole!
Down the Rabbit Hole
Author: Holly Madison
Description: A spontaneous decision at age twenty-one transformed small-town Oregon girl Holly Sue Cullen into Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner’s #1 girlfriend. But like Alice’s journey into Wonderland, after Holly plunged down the rabbit hole, 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. 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.
A dark (yet colorful) look inside, what most of would deem as lavish glamor – Perhaps a life one should feel nothing less than privileged to live. A life many girls (to this day) are striving for. With pipe dreams of making it big into Playboy and Fame, Holly manages to wiggle her way from small town girl into the elite LA Society that is the Playboy Enterprise. Rubbing elbows with the whose who of Hollywood and working her way up to Hef's #1. From the moment I picked up Holly's book, I couldn't put it down. I literally spent a full day enthralled in her World of insecurities and back-stabbing bitches. Although bleak, Holly keeps us captivated with her fun and easy writing style. Is there much more she could possibly spill on this so-called "glamorous" life? With jealousy and betrayal, life in the Playboy Mansion is definitely not something I found to be desired or envied. Everyone loves a good drama (especially Hef! 😉 ), but when the story is 'true' it's mystery will pull you in that much more. Holly teaches us that the grass is not always greener on the other side and most importantly, be careful what you wish for. I will not leave you with *any* spoilers! Down the Rabbit Hole is a must read! I love knowing I own the physical copy of this book, rather than the Kindle. I will read again! I believe with little knowledge of Hugh Hefner, his girlfriends or even "major interest" in Playboy itself – Holly will have you fascinated with the inside scoop on this "secret wold". This purchase is one that will not disappoint! Pick up your copy of Down the Rabbit Hole from amazon.com or amazon.ca.
