Former Girls Next Door star Bridget Marquardt is not choosing sides.

In fact, she’d rather talk about her engagement ring, which features a spider made out of diamonds.

Marquardt, 42, spoke to hosts Garcelle Beauvais and Kristen Brockman on Hollywood Today Live yesterday about her October 2015 engagement to director Nick Carpenter.

Oh, and about that massive fight between her former Playboy mansion roommates, Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison.

"It’s kind of sad," Marquardt revealed.

"Like I feel like we have a bond, the three of us. It’s kind of like, it’s not like a sisterhood, it’s not like friends, I mean it is friends, but it’s something totally different than any other relationship you could possibly imagine."

That explanation was almost impossible to follow.

"And so in that sense, it kind of makes me sad, but at the same time, I mean, Holly came out with a book and she gave her experience.

"This is what I told Kendra, ‘She’s writing about her experience and this is how she’s reflecting on it and she has a right to do that.

‘And you have a right not to agree with her, but lashing out like this and saying such vile things and stuff isn’t really the way to handle it either,’" Marquardt said.

On May 17th, Madison debuted her new book, The Vegas Diaries, a follow-up to her 2015 book, Down The Rabbit Hole.  

Marquardt also revealed that Wilkinson admitted to never having read either of Madison’s books.

"She must be referring to the first book that Holly wrote, not the one that’s coming out right now," Marquardt said.

"But Kendra hasn’t read the book. I asked her, she hasn’t read it."

Wilkinson reached out to Marquardt to appear on her WE reality show, Kendra On Top.  The mom-of-two apologized to Marquardt for the hurtful things she said about their relationship and how they weren’t nearly as close as people thought.

"I do feel it was sincere and I do think there’s a long way to go," Marquardt said, looking back on their conversation.

"There’s been a long track record of things, you know, so I think that that’s definitely a step in the right direction, and we both feel really good about it.

"But it doesn’t mean that we’re BFFs or anything right now."
