Holly Madison’s new book “Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny” has been sitting on top of book store shelves for some time now, but the controversies surrounding Madison’s admissions do not seem to diminish. The latest slammer to the highly popular book is a former playmate and ex-roommate to Madison, Izabella St. James. The former resident of the Playboy mansion has slammed Madison’s book claiming that the once girlfriend of Hugh Hefner has twisted several tales to suit her memoir.
According to St. James, the memoirs found in the book are “a big bunch o’ lies” and is Madison’s way of seeking revenge against Hefner for not marrying her. The former model while giving an interview to a leading media house said that though Madison lived in the mansion for two years, she had an unsettling “single white female” obsession with the Playboy owner.
The 39-year-old former ex-roommate further stated that Madison did not even have a problem in taking part in “depraved acts that none of Hefner's other girlfriends would perform.”She also said that Madison’s claim that she had suicidal tendencies while in the house was all “outrageous” claims to sell the book.
St. James said in the interview that during her stay at the house, she felt that Madison was always the willing and happy participant in whatever Hefner asked them to do. “When you want something so badly, lose all dignity, and cross all moral boundaries to get it and then turn it around to make yourself a victim, and maybe she has made herself believe this, but I feel sorry for Her that she is just so completely ungrateful,” she said.
That’s not all. Now St. James is contemplating suing her former friend. In 2006, St. James had brought out a similar book called “Bunny Tales: Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion” which unfortunately didn’t find too many takers. She apparently wants to sue Madison after finding too many similarities with her book.
In Madison’s book, the author revealed several secrets. Now St. James wants to tell the world that most of what’s written is not right. For example, Madison’s claim that she was bullied by the other girls in the house is completely wrong. She also attempted to debunk Madison’s claims that Hef belittled her constantly, had a 9 pm curfew in the house and wanted his bunnies to be financially dependent on him.
