Playboy bunny ‘felt herself become stupid’ in Hefner’s ‘dumbed down’ Mansion

Hugh Hefner’s ex-girlfriends have complained about feeling “dumbed down” while living in the Playboy Mansion with the tycoon.

Before his death in 2017, Hefner forged the Playboy business empire, where he published pictures of attractive models, as well as surrounding himself with women in his LA Mansion.

The relationship between Hefner and the women he associated with has been shrouded in mystery, but two of the magnate’s former girlfriends Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt have been openly critical of Hefner’s expectations about sex in the Mansion.

And now, Speaking on their Girls Next Level podcast, Holly and Bridget addressed the stereotypes associated with Hefner’s entourage of women and claimed that the mogul wanted his girlfriends to play dumb.

“I think Hef thinks a woman acting stupid and acting helpless is cute, and that’s how a woman should be,” Holly suggested.

“I think he prefers that, encourages it, profits off it, exploits it, but he’s also going to make fun of somebody for that and I don’t think it’s cool.

“There are many things that I was disgusted at myself for putting up with while I was there, and that was one of them.

“I’m like, ‘why the f*** am I living in this world where everybody acts stupid all the time?’”

Bridget agreed, but stressed that not every woman had lowered themselves to the standards expected by Hefner.

However, the Playboy model-turned-ghost hunter admitted that she had spoken with some of the other women who lived in the Mansion at the time about feeling “dumbed down” by the entrepreneur.

Both models spent years living with Hefner, and Holly suggested that she had even noticed her intellect deteriorating as time went on.

“I felt like my memory started to get s****y, I was forgetting things, and I started to get a stammer sometimes when I would speak,” she remembered.

“I was like, ‘I feel like I’m being so dumbed down by being here and being in this routine. All these girls were acting stupid because they know it’s the way they are going to get approval, and it’s just driving me up a wall.”

This comes after the pair denied using sex to "get things" from Hefner during their time in the Mansion, on a recent podcast episode, and even suggested they had actively avoided bedroom encounters with the mogul.
