Playboy is known for its stunning babes and iconic parties.

But since the passing of Hugh Hefner in 2017, ex-models have confessed to what life was really like in the epic LA mansion.

Pin-up model Holly Madison recently exposed the dark side as she opened up about "cheap" insults and strict rules.

And since the girls pretty much made Playboy what it is today, a lot has changed in the past few years.

Following on from his death, Hugh's ex-wife and now-widow Crystal Harris, 35, has since found love with a new man.

Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson also remarried, although it ended in a divorce in 2018.

Here we take a look at where the late millionaire's ladies are today…

Crystal Harris

Model turned travel blogger Crystal, 35, had a bit of a bumpy ride with the Playboy legend.

When he was 82 in 2009, the then 22-year-old moved in when he was living with his twin girlfriends Kristina and Karissa Shannon.

Then in 2011, he dumped the twins to marry Crystal, although she called off the wedding with just a few days to go.

During their brief split, she confessed she only had sex with Hugh once and it lasted "two seconds".

Last month, she visited the Mansion and reflected on their marriage as she admitted she was "still healing" from certain experiences.

Their marriage lasted five years but since his death, Crystal has found love with actor boyfriend Ryan Malaty, 32.

Kristina & Karissa Shannon

The twins, now 32, joined Hugh in the mansion in 2008 after his top girlfriend Holly Madison moved out.

They left in 2010, but moved next door to stay with other Playmates.

Kristina and Karissa then moved in briefly when Crystal called off her 2011 wedding to him.

Since Hugh's death, the twins appeared in Celebrity Big Brother and came in fifth place.

However things went downhill when Kristina was charged with drink driving in 2016 after crashing a car while on her way with her sister to get a nipple piercing.

In 2017, both sisters were arrested for domestic violence after they got into a drunken brawl.

Reports claim Kristina punched her sister in the face while Karissa knocked out her sister's teeth by throwing a security alarm at her.

Holly Madison

Former Hooters waitress Holly was one of a trio of Hef's girlfriends who featured in reality show The Girls Next Door, which was followed by her own spin-off Holly’s World.

The 41-year-old once said she would like to marry him and have his babies but they split in 2008.

Dating Hef brought fame and Holly, who insured her surgery-inflated breasts for $1million (£739,000), landed spots on the US version of Strictly, Dancing With The Stars, and a stint on the Las Vegas strip in burlesque show Peepshow.

She married music promoter Pasquale Rotella and had two children but the pair ­divorced in 2019.

Carla Howe

The Brit, 31, and her sister Melissa lived with Hugh in the Playboy Mansion in his later years, but she insists their relationship was sex-free.

She revealed how she and her Playmate sister moved in 2011, but soon became bored of life with the Playboy chief.

Speaking a few years before his death, Carla, from Slough, said: "He's so old now I couldn't imagine him trying to make a move."

Carla also lifted the lid on the mansion's strict rules which included a 9pm curfew.

But since her time in the mansion, the model had rumoured relationships with boxer Amir Khan and rapper Tyga.

Bridget Marquardt

Another of Hugh's Girl Next Door girlfriends, Bridget, 48, found success on the big screen in ­comedy horror Kottentail as a scientist doing ­genetic research on rabbits, then played ­herself in TV classic Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Nickelback hired her for their Rockstar ­music video.

She is now a paranormal investigator with her podcast Ghost Magnet.

The ex-bunny and actress has also appeared in spooky TV shows like Celebrity Ghost Adventures.

Kendra Wilkinson

The third of the Girls Next Door ladies, Kendra landed two of her own spin-off shows.

A reality TV regular, she appeared on I'm A Celebrity in 2014 as well as Dancing With The Stars in the US.

The 36-year-old also had a sex tape released by a high school boyfriend.

She married American footballer Hank Baskett at the Playboy Mansion, but they divorced in 2018.

This year the mum-of-two launched herself as a real estate agent in LA with Discovery+ show Kendra Sells Hollywood.

Izabella St James

This brings us onto Polish model Izabella who emigrated to Canada with her family as a child before moving to California to study for a law degree.

Her Playboy life started when she took a two-year break from her studies to move in with Hef in 2002.

Her biography describes how girlfriends were given a $1,000 (£770) weekly allowance and Hefner would fund unlimited plastic surgery.

Now she runs charity The Pug Queen which rescues neglected pugs and enables them to find new homes.

In 2020, US rapper Aaron Carter threatened to sue her for defamation after she accused him of abusing his pug Nala.
