What was It? ‘The Girls Next Door’?
2005 E! With whom can you collaborate? PlayboyTo create The Girls Next Door. The reality series brought viewers into the Playboy Mansion to witness the drama and drunken hijinks. Hugh Hefner appeared alongside Bridget Marquardt, Holly Madison, and Kendra Wilkinson. It was a huge success and has been adapted into many other series.
As the series progressed, the original trio became disillusioned and wanted to quit. They were contractually required to stay for the sixth series, but Hefner brought in three new girlfriends. Crystal Harris was joined by twin sisters, 19-year-old Kristina Shannon and Karissa Shannon.
Although there was a lot of interest in the sixth season, the viewership dropped to just 919 thousand within weeks. This marked the end for the series. Although the Shannon twins left the house before the series ended they remained on the show as stars.
Now They’re Talking
The Shannons sat down on A&E’s Playboy secretsThey were asked to talk about their experiences on the reality series, and it didn’t sound very good. Shannon says, “He locked us in our bedroom”They were both kept under close surveillance. “There would be a security guard sitting outside of our door. … They would always, in the morning, come up with their report of every single thing we did that night the next morning for [Hefner].”
It gets worse. The pressure was too much for the twins to have a baby with Hefner. They gave in and Karissa fell for the temptation to have Hefner’s baby. She said, “I felt like there was something, like, like, an alien inside me. I was just grossed out.”She decided to have an abortion in order to avoid him controlling her.
Hefner is out!
Shannon doesn’t mince words when it comes to her experience. “For me, it’s, like, rape. He would use control mechanisms completely throughout everything, so I’m happy that I had the abortion.”Shannon is not the first former Playmate who has called out Hefner for his horrible treatment. The allegations are serious and leave an indelible mark on Hefner’s complicated legacy.
