Holly Madison says Hef is ‘high maintenance’

Holly Madison clearly has some bitter feelings for Hugh Hefner. On the one hand, who can blame her? On the other, it’s not like he deceived her (as far as anyone can tell). He’s pretty open about his lifestyle and priorities, and marriage and babies aren’t exactly the geriatric gentleman’s focus.

Holly called Hef “high maintenance,” in an interview set to air tomorrow on Extra. She’s really working the “I’m moving on and super happy about it” angle. And why shouldn’t she? She’s young, hot, and sorta pissed. But she’s still getting a few digs in there.

Hugh Hefner’s former No. 1 girlfriend is excited about her future dating prospects – just as long as they’re not like her famous ex. “It might be refreshing to date someone who is not high maintenance,” Holly Madison told “Extra” in an interview set to air on Wednesday. “Sorry, Hef … I love you, but you know you’re high maintenance.”

Madison, who confirmed her split from Hefner last month, also took a not-so-subtle jab at her 82-year-old ex in an interview with In Touch magazine. “I haven’t had sex in a really long time,” she said. “And that’s the honest truth.” Aw, snap!

And what happened to Amy Leigh Andrews, that Georgia State student Hef mentioned in passing? The 24-year-old was spotted canoodling with Hefner’s new posse on Oct. 4, and popped up again at the Playboy Mansion’s annual Halloween celebration media preview. She also changed her MySpace romantic status to read, “in a relationship.” Andrews is “a lovely girl,” Hefner told E! last month, adding, “I think we will be spending time together … And there will be others.”

[From the Daily News]

As much as I understand why Holly may feel the need to talk some smack, that last quote from Hef is pretty telling. He’s always made it clear there will be others. I bet logically Holly didn’t expect otherwise, she was maybe just hoping to be the one who changed everything for the aging playboy.

The Daily News pointed out that, “Playboy reps have yet to comment on Hefner’s latest romantic lineup.” That’s really the best way to put it. Even before he had a reality show, Hef’s girlfriends were more like employees. He filled slots, promoted when appropriate, and fired or forced them into retirement when they reached a certain age. Holly should have moved on a long time ago, but at least she’s doing it now.

Here’s Holly out and about in West Hollywood yesterday and posing in front of a billboard with Lindsay Crolius. Images thanks to WENN.

    Holly Madison needs to say “Thanks for giving me a face, body and career, Hef” and STFU. She’s an ingrate and whatever favour she gained on TGNS will wane quickly if she plays the media for sympathy.

  2. Christina says:

    of course he’s high maintenance… he’s old and set in his ways…

    I adore Holly and i think Hugh Hefner made a big mistake in letting the girls go.From the show yo can really tell that Holly and Brigitte really cared about him.Kendra just was for the ride and you could tell she didn’t care that much.Hope the 3 girls do great and find hapinness in their future.From know on HH will only have casual girls that don’t care at all for all his demands, that were a lot and everyone could see if you watched the show.

  7. Blue says:

    Of course he was high maintence, he is a grouchy old man dependent on Viagra. Don’t get what the appeal of him was in the first place, you would think a young woman like Holly would want something better than some man’s old droopy turtle crawling on her all the time.Plus, he’s 82, if they had a baby, that would be TWO diapers she would be changing all the time.

  8. Elle says:

    He’s still married and he already has children that live right across the street from the mansion. I can understand falling in love with a man who is currently going through a divorce (afterall I did); however, if the person that you are in love with is still married and has no plans of getting a divorce then your best bet is to move one and not get too involved. You have to realize that you are nothing more than a kept woman and that you will not rise in the ranks. Hugh said shortly after the break-up that they tried to conceive and it didn’t work which placed a huge strain on their relationship. I think that Holly should have been a little more realistic in her expectations of the aging bachelor.

  9. Jackie says:

    Did she really expect to marry him and have his babies? She’s got a lot of nerve talking shit about him. He’s a self-made man and the world knows Holly Madison only because of him. I’m not a great Hef fan or anything but she had to know what she was getting into. She needs to stop acting like she’s all heart broken.

  10. Rosanna says:

    Can any of you just think that – MAYBE – you can’t actually know what Hef did (or did not) promise to her? He might or might not have been honest with her about marrying her and especially about having kids. After all he did marry his present wife and had babies with her but kept on having his lifestyle, pretty confusing message, you would think. Holly spent her youth with him, which is something he can’t give her back.. she has all rights to be pissed JUST FOR THAT.

  11. aspen says:

    Lots of women in Holly’s age group choose poorly and make bad decisions in their early relationships.

    Yes. She should have known better.

    That doesn’t make her a bad or stupid person. She’s actually quite bright. She’s also beautiful and resourceful. She’ll do just fine.

    Any woman who escapes her 20′s with no relationships that made her angry or hurt…should be on her knees thanking God…not judging people who DID mess up.

    It’s disgusting no matter how you look at it

  13. Sickitten says:

    I come here for VdanteV

  14. PLK says:

    she even said on the show that he was high maintnence so its not even a big deal. people blow things wayyy out of proportion but um she got her 15 minutes of fame so she can now move on. nobody cares now that she isnt with hef.

  15. Christina X says:

    Why’s everyone being an apologist for Hugh Hefner?

    Holly Madison doesn’t bother me, and seemed like the more domestic of the three on the show, so her motives seem a little bit more genuine to me.

    On the other hand, I think she’s an insecure woman. I think she only joined in on the whole Playboy deal in the first place because of a need for some kind of validation, which is kind of sad.

    Which makes Hugh Hefner all the more despicable. How would you feel being placed on a pedestal in such a high profile relationship during your physical prime only to be gotten rid of “because you got too old”?

    Hugh Hefner represents everything I cannot stand in a man. I really fail to comprehend why everyone’s so quick to defend Hugh Hefner and justify his treatment of women with “Oh, she just wants his money!” while he uses women all the same, as in he uses them for sex/status.

    His income is his gimmick, and it really doesn’t seem to bother him, or he would have been bitching about it a long, long, LONG time ago. He knows what he’s doing. Give me a break.

    On the other hand, Hugh Hefner’s pathetic because he apparently has a little bit of difficulty with facing that he’s ancient. I guess screwing 19 year old twins (by the way, GAG!) is how he preserves youth.

  16. SixxKitty says:

    I love Hef… either way… :D

  17. JUJUBABE says:

    hell is getting larger by the minute to hold it’s future inhabitants.

    That’s rich. She probably terrorized the staff acting like Lady Hef of the Playboy Manor.
