It’s easier to keep friends in public view than it is to do.

Most would be able to agree with that. Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt shared an unforgettable experience appearing on Girls Next Door. In the reality show, which ran from 2005 to 2010, the models documented their lives inside the Playboy Mansion and their relationship with the late Hugh Hefner.

But after the show wrapped in August 2010, the friendships didn’t stay as strong as they once were.

“When we were leaving, I loved Kendra,” Holly shared on the Aug. 16 podcast episode of Juicy Scoop With Heather McDonald. “We had our sibling rivalry while we were there, but I thought that after she was with Hank [Baskett], she just seemed like so much more mature so happy and I feel like all three of us were so happy for each other and the direction our lives were going.”

Holly and Bridget attended Kendra’s 2009 marriage to Hank. The pair have a son together. Hank Jr., 12, And daughter AlijahShe, then 8, divorced in 2018. Holly claims that her relationship with Kendra started to shift after they both landed shows on their own.
