The Girls Next Door: Where are they now?

The Girls Next Door was one of the most  fun and sexy shows to watch on E! from 2005 to 2010. The first five seasons centered around Hugh Hefner’s then-girlfriends Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson. While dating Hefner, the girls sky rocketed to fame and found success in their show awhile also posing for Playboy and had cameos on various television shows and movies…. But where are they now?

Holly Madison: Holly found continued fame on her E! hit show Holly’s World and had great success as the lead in the  Las Vegas spectacular, Peepshow, conceived by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell. (2009-2012) She also was on Dancing with the Stars. In 2010, Holly wrote The Showgirl Next Door: Holly Madison’s Las Vegas, a travel guide, which included the history of Las Vegas and the history of the Las Vegas showgirl. In 2012, the pet lover launched her pet product line, Lucky Pet Products.  Holly welcomed her first child, Rainbow Aurora this March with her new husband,  Pasquale Rotella who she just married at Disneyland on September 10.

Kendra Wilkinson: Kendra immediately started her own hit reality show, Kendra on E! after The Girls Next Door wrapped. Kendra Wilkinson quickly married Hank Baskett on June 27, 2009, at the Playboy Mansion. They welcomed their son, Hank shortly after. In 2011, she left E! and started a new reality show, Kendra on Top on WE tv. Kendra was also on Dancing with the Stars and Celebrity Splash.  She also has a collection of intimate feminine toys called Love Candy and has written multiple best selling  books.

Bridget Marquardt: Unfortunately, Bridget has probably had the least success after The Girls Next Door ended. In 2009, she hosted her own show, Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches which only lasted one season on the Travel Channel. In 2012, she worked as a contributor to Yahoo’s Animal Nation series, writing articles and shooting related short documentary pieces, putting her Communications degree to good use.
