Holly Madison

Hollin Sue Cullen, professionally known as Holly Madison, (born December 23, 1979) is an American model, showgirl and television personality. She is widely known for being one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends on the reality television series The Girls Next Door. Madison now has her own reality series Holly's World.

Although not a Playboy Playmate, she has appeared in nude pictorials with her Girls Next Door costars, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson. In 2009, she appeared as a contestant on the eighth season of Dancing with the Stars.

Early life
Madison was born in Astoria, Oregon. She has one younger sister, Stephanie, and a younger brother, Joe. Both siblings were featured on season 3 and season 4 episodes of "The Girls Next Door." Her father's work in the timber industry led her family to travel. From ages two through eleven, she lived on Prince of Wales Island, near Ketchikan, Alaska. Her family later moved back to Oregon, this time to St. Helens. She attended Portland State University for two years, majoring in both theater and psychology.

In 1999, Madison moved to Los Angeles and attended Loyola Marymount University.

To afford college tuition, she competed to become a Hawaiian Tropic model and worked at Hooters. Madison's appearance at these venues led to invitations to Hefner's Playboy Mansion. After more than a year of such visits, Madison was invited to move in. She became one of Hefner's seven official girlfriends in August 2001. In February 2002, after all but two of his girlfriends left, Madison became Hefner's "#1 Girl" and moved into his bedroom. She was named among the top Hooters girls of all time in 2008 as part of the restaurant's twenty-fifth anniversary.

Madison has spoken openly about her cosmetic surgeries, having had both a rhinoplasty and breast augmentation. After the latter procedure, her bust measurements went from an A-cup to a D. In 2011, Madison announced that she has insured her breasts for $1 million. She also once had a red Playboy Bunny logo tattooed on her lower back but later had it removed.

Personal life
In the past, Madison has stated that she wanted to marry Hefner and have his children. During an interview at the Playmate of the Year luncheon in May 2008, Hefner stated, "I love Holly very much and I think we’re going to be together the rest of my life, but marriage isn’t part of my puzzle. It’s not a personal thing; I just haven’t had much luck with marriages."

On October 7, 2008, Madison announced in a video posted on TMZ.com that her relationship with Hefner had ended, but that she, Bridget Marquardt, and Kendra Wilkinson are "still filming stuff together." Hugh Hefner confirmed the breakup stating that, "If Holly says it's over, I guess it's over." Despite the breakup, all three girls committed to a sixth season of The Girls Next Door.

In November 2008, Madison began dating illusionist Criss Angel, but the relationship ended in February 2009. Madison was interviewed by People on March 4, 2009, stating "I'm never dating anybody again. I don't need a man. I'm really happy with myself and being with my friends...I'm focused on forwarding my career. I'm working on producing my own shows. Girls Next Door was a great place to start but it was somebody else's show. I'm just ready to move on." In December 2009, she began dating Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden, but their romance ended in January 2010. In July 2010, Madison began dating All Time Low guitarist Jack Barakat. She was interviewed on December 9, 2010, stating that, "It’s just a case of having fun together and not thinking about the future.” However, Madison's reps confirmed to People Magazine on March 21, 2011 that Madison and Barakat had broken up after nearly ten months of dating. Apparently, the decision was mutual and amicable.
