Holly Madison confirmed rumors that she and Hugh Hefner have split via a blog on her Myspace.

Speculation of a Holly and Hef break up has been building for months, and Monday night Hef's former #1 girlfriend told TMZ cameras that she has moved out of the Playboy mansion. Holly then blogged about the break up on her Myspace page.

What’s Going on . . . .
Current mood:  lonely

Hef and I care about each other immensely and will always be best friends . . . I do have my own place, but I am still at the Mansion, too, right now . . . I’m too busy to move even if I wanted to! hahaha . . . Bridget, Kendra and I are all still best friends and plan on doing several projects together in the future . . . even though Bridget is in Europe right now and I am sad and lonely without her . . .

You will see how it all happens in Season 5 . . . Sunday nights on E! . . . How lame, I just turned that into the most shameless plug ever . . . lol!


Rumors of a romance between Holly and magician Criss Angel began circulating after the two were spotted getting cozy in Las Vegas.

Hefner even acknowledged a transition in the relationship, saying, “I love very much, but she wants very much to get married and have children, but that isn’t in the cards for me,” noting, “So there has to be a certain reality there. And I’m sure the time will come when she’ll be dating others. That’s part of the transition.”

There is no word on whether Hefner's other girlfriends, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt, will remain in the mansion, although rumors have been swirling that Wilkinson is romantically involved with Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett.

Tensions were running high among The Girls Next Door over the summer, and Holly and Kendra blew off steam via their Myspace blogs in July.

In August it was reported that Hef had taken up with Ukranian model Dasha Astafieva, and there was speculation that she was on track to become his new girlfriend.

I find it interesting and noteworthy that the split comes on the heels of rumors that Playboy is facing bankruptcy.  If you're an 82-year-old man, you better have something besides Viagra to keep those pretty young things around.
