New couple alert: Benji Madden and Holly Madison


What comes to mind when you hear that two people are “secretly dating?” Could it be that the two people are intensely private and want to keep their personal affairs just that, or perhaps one of the daters is kind of embarrassed to be seen with the other one? Well, when you consider that one of the people used to date Paris Hilton, and the other one has been naked in Playboy, you can’t really tell. Former “Girl Next Door”/lover of Hugh Hefner (gag!) Holly Madison is reportedly hanging around with Benji Madden, who dated Paris Hilton (also, gag!) for eight entire months. But nobody is supposed to know about it.

Paris Hilton’s ex-boyfriend, rocker Benji Madden, is secretly dating Hugh Hefner’s former Playmate Holly Madison.

The couple has been keeping the romance under wraps but now they’re beginning to talk about each other – and star spotters are catching public displays of affection.

The pair was spotted at a Melrose Avenue coffee shop recently in Los Angeles and couldn’t seem to keep their hands off one another.

A bystander says, “He was rubbing her lower back and the top of her butt, and she was hanging on his shoulder. They were laughing and flirting the entire time.”

And now Madison, who briefly dated illusionist Criss Angel after splitting from Hefner last year, has taken one step closer to a true confession about her new man.

She tells Life & Style magazine, “You can say I’m hanging out with someone I have a crush on.”

Friends tell the publication Madden is her secret crush.

Benji was last linked to Katy Perry, but after photos of them partying at Chateau Marmont hit the web, Perry was quick to say that the two are just friends. He has been keeping a pretty low profile romantically since his split with Paris Hilton – maybe the intense paparazzi during their relationship scared him for good. I doubt the media frenzy would be anywhere near that level if he is dating Holly Madison. Which begs a bigger question: now that she is no longer on that wretched “reality” show, can we stop calling her a celebrity? Please? Can we just start referring to her as a former Playboy model or something?

  7. SeVen says:

    Shame… i always liked Benji but lost all respect for him when he was with Herpies Hilton. Meh.

  8. dude says:

    I think she should change her last name from Madison to Melons. Man, talk about some fake hooters geez!!

  9. Sumodo says:

    If they aren’t a couple of germ bombs, great. Holly has always seemed mature, but Benji being 30–wow! Boybanders always seem young!

  10. Karen says:

    What is the difference if we call her a “former playboy model” or a celebrity? It means exactly the same thing.

  11. jess says:

    are his earrings door knockers? lol

  12. HEB says:

    She’s a show girl and has a new show on E! Yes she’s a celebrity. Deal with it.

  13. Jojo says:

    He’s HOT!

  14. Popcorny says:

    Everything about this plastic-rag is fake. Hasn’t anyone told her yet that her Woolworth’s special bottled hair color is completely wrong and garish?
    Her eyes are too dark to pull that color off no matter how she tries applying that .99 cent eyebrow pencil.
    She looks like she could be Benji’s librarian grandma-after-successful-surgery and extreme-slut-makeover.

  15. DrM says:

    Ouch Popcorny…who pee’d in your Weeties this morning mate???

    She used to be one of Hef’s girls…whatdya expect??? Toned down class? LOL 🙂

  16. Melanie says:

    I think she has a new show on E! called Holly’s World.

  17. Popcorny says:

    Who pee’d in my Wheaties?
    -Probably Bruce “Hermaphroface” Jenner back in the 70’s for starters … and then they all joined in with their plastics, steroids, botoxes, weaves, fillers, veneers, tan sprays, attachments, silicones, implants and extensions.
    And yes, as much as they are vomitrocious type people to begin with, I become more intolerant when I’m having a bad day -or two.

  18. zippersgirl says:

    Wow- he’s really attracted to the brainiacs isn’t he?

  19. Elle says:

    e: I second that. I actually exclaimed “Yay!” when I read the headline.

  20. Aprill says:

    Wow. I wonder is this one like the Paris Hilton relationship.

  21. DrM says:

    @Popcorny – OMG I completely agree with you on Bruce Jenner…truly truly frightening looking…and he was a really nice looking man…and he prolly would be still if he’d laid off the ‘interventions’

  22. Sasssy says:

    Her boobs are so fake. she is so ugly. bitch

  23. Sasssy says:

    and benji has herpes was infected by paris lol moron!

  24. snowball says:

    I like Holly. Okay, I admit, I watched that craptacular Girls Next Door a couple of times, and Holly seemed to be the least bimbo-y. She’s the one who organized some of their photo shoots and she was splitting some sort of business thing with the Crypt Keeper.

    I don’t know, she just seems really likeable when you get past the stupidly blonde hair and two inches of makeup.

    Benji looks like he probably smokes a lot of pot. He and Holly seem like an odd coupling, but there have been weirder.

    Sasssy, why so harsh?

  25. skilo says:

    I couldn’t believe Benji got sucked in to Paris Hilton’s whoretex to begin with. I think Holly is actually very pretty and looks much younger with less makeup. I wonder if she thinks he will be as good for/to her as Joel has to Nicole. I think maybe she’d like to be that happy with someone.

  26. Cindy says:

    Holly is a floozie. She is a cheap tramp who has no talent but to show off her fake boobs.

  27. holdmeaspotinhell says:

    I liked Holly Madison until she showed how bitter she was/how much class she really had when she went on the Chelsea Handler show, not only mocked Criss Angel’s lisp but, went on to mention that a book she was writing about Vegas would include only “fun” things to do after Chelsea asked her if her ex Criss Angel’s show would be in it! I’m not his cheerleader but grow up Skankison! A little bitter because you couldn’t get someone you were dating for five minutes to marry you; this of course after dumping someone you where fucking old enough to be your great great grandfather for the past several years?!
