Holly Madison said she will not appear on Howard Stern’s radio show because she fears Stern will ask about her sex life with Hugh Hefner.
Madison lived in the infamous Playboy Mansion with Hefner, the founder and editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine, as Hefner’s main girlfriend from 2001 to 2008, despite their 54-year age difference. Hefner died in 2017 at the age of 91.
During the Monday episode of her girl next level Podcast that Madison co-hosts with the former girl next door Star Bridget Marquardt told Madison she is purposely avoiding performing The Howard Stern Show.
“We try to be proactive and selective about the press we do. We decide against it Howard Stern because we don’t want to talk about it,” the 42-year-old explained in response to questions about her sex life. “We choose to do things that we think are appropriate, but people still think they can ask the biggest questions.”
Stern’s show debuted on SiriusXM in 2006 when the host made the switch to satellite radio after a career in traditional radio and television that began in the 1980s. Over the years, the New York native has been known for his shocking antics and pushing the boundaries in his celebrity interviews.
news week reached out to Stern’s rep for comment.
Madison published her memoir entitled: Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales from a Former Playboy Bunnyseven years ago and said she made it clear that she “didn’t feel comfortable” discussing certain aspects of her private life in interviews.
“There were even parts of sex life that weren’t consensual for me, and people still think it’s okay to ask for the goriest details,” she said.
The mother-of-two, who shares children Rainbow Aurora Rotella and Forest Leonardo Antonio Rotella with ex-husband Pasquale Rotella, added, “Some of you might say, ‘Well, you talk about it, you talk about it out here, but it’s different , if I’m the one putting it on my platform and I’m sharing,” Madison explained.
“It’s a different feeling when someone else comes up to you and asks you something very specific, like, ‘How often have you been tested for STDs?'” she said. “It almost makes me feel like I’m being aggressive, like I’m trying to make a rude comeback, you know what I’m saying?”
girl next level premiered in August, and Madison and Marquardt, 49, have since shared behind-the-scenes secrets about their time at the villa.
During last week’s episode, Madison recalled that Hefner used baby oil as a lube while they were intimate.
“Hef would use baby oil as a lube,” she said. “I don’t recommend that. It’s an infection waiting to happen. It is disgusting. I don’t know what his problem was with that.”
The reality TV graduate added that she was “constantly irritated” by it and was advised by a gynecologist not to use it that way.
However, Madison claimed that Hefner ignored her concerns and continued to use it in secret.
“It got to the point where I refused to use it, but then other people told me that – in the bedroom – he would put it on his hand and then on me when my back was to him, and I knew it he didn’t do it,” she said, noting that it was “so lazy and so non-consensual.”
“I had forgotten that for a long time, but for some reason I was reminded of it and it made me angry again.”
In a separate episode, Marquardt said sex with Hefner was a “chore.”
“Everyone just wanted it to be over as soon as possible,” she said.
