Crystal Hefner speaks out again on Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison feud over sex confessions

Hugh Hefner’s widow Crystal added further insight into the ongoing feud between former The Girls Next Door stars Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson.

‘I understand that Holly is probably finding healing by speaking about her experience, for sure,’ the 34-year-old theorized about Madison’s recent interview detailing sexual expectations at the Playboy Mansion on an episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast.

‘I noticed because I’m trying to find my own healing as I reflect back. I know Holly went through some very hard things at the mansion. I think some of the things I went through are harder,’ she added during an interview with US Weekly on Friday.

After the 41-year-old star upset Wilkinson by claiming that all women had to sleep with Hugh before moving into the mansion (which she previously denied), Crystal now says she understands why there’s tension between the two former co-stars.

‘I can understand the contention between Holly and Kendra, especially because Kendra was kind of more checked out. And so, she had to deal with less, like, psychologically at the mansion. And I think that might be a source of bitterness with Holly,’ she told the publication. 

Crystal was married to the late Playboy mogul from 2012 until his death on September 27, 2017, at the age of 91.

She also confessed that she sympathizes with Holly: ‘I can completely understand Holly there because I was in the position that Holly was in. I became Hef’s wife. I was with him all the time. I became just so invested in his life almost to the point of losing myself, so I can understand her perspective.’

The Down The Rabbit Hole author had seemingly called into question Wilkinson’s previous claims that she had not been intimate with Hugh prior to when she moved into the famed mansion at the age of 18. 

‘I had to sleep with him first,’ Madison said. ‘I’m not trying to slut shame anybody or anything, but nobody ever got asked to move in unless they had slept with him.’ 

Crystal had previously taken Wilkinson’s side in the women’s reignited feud with a post on the social media platform MeWe: ‘I was at the mansion for a DECADE almost four years ago now and these ladies and their drama were there years before that. I side with Kendra here.’

The Playboy model continued: ‘Not sure why these women who shared an incredibly uncommon and rare experience (that will never be repeated in our lifetimes) can’t get along?’

She also went on to reveal that Madison and fellow former Playmate Bridget Marquardt, 47, ‘despise’ her ‘for absolutely NO reason.’ 

‘I hope one day we can all get along and compare experiences,’ she admitted, nearly four years after Hugh’s passing. 

Crystal is launching her own podcast in June and elaborated on the Holly-Kendra divide: ‘We are all so different. It is so interesting how different we are. All of us are so unique.’ 

‘I have not had a conversation with Holly at all. There’s just been things in the media, like subtle digs at me. I try and understand her reasoning, but it’s probably the things I mentioned. Maybe there’s some more things, but she said things in the past that have been hurtful in the media, and I’ve always tried to not do that back to her. I think Kendra is more happy-go-lucky, she’s more healed. She’s more go with the flow. I think that’s the big difference between them,’ she continued.

Widow: Crystal was married to the late Playboy mogul from 2012 until his death on September 27, 2017, at the age of 91; the couple are here in 2013

Wilkinson, 35, first responded to the claims in a reply to an E! News Instagram post about Holly’s appearance, saying ‘Dude… it’s 2021.’ 

The San Diego native, who shares children, Hank IV, 11, and Alijah, seven, with ex-NFL Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett, 38, made it clear she did not harbor any ill will amid the controversy. 

‘Times have changed, I forgive and have kids to love and focus on,’ the mom-of-two said.

While on I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! in 2014, Wilkinson said she was naïve to the dynamics of the Playboy Mansion when she had moved in.

‘I moved in and weeks went by, and I didn’t know “sex” was involved… because I knew nothing about Playboy – I had just graduated high school,’ she said on the show, ET reported.

Clearly not letting these new comments disrupt her daily life, the reality television star was seen with her two kids at a skincare event in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The outing comes after a source told Us Weekly in August that Wilkinson is getting along better with her ex-husband. 

‘Kendra and Hank have been very cordial and are in a really good spot with co-parenting,’ a source told the publication after the former pair officially divorced in February 2019.

‘Hank is out of the picture in terms of a romantic relationship, but they have a good thing going when it comes to the kids. They switch off week to week with them,’ the insider added.
