Holly said: ‘I got to a point not too far into my time there – I think I was only six months in – where I kind of broke under that pressure and being made to feel like I needed to look exactly like everybody else.’

She continued: ‘My hair was really long naturally and I was just like, I’m gonna go chop my hair off so I can at least look a little different.’

Holly claims that Hef’s reaction was not positive at all: ‘I came back with short hair and he flipped out on me and he was screaming at me and said it make me look old, hard and cheap.’ 

She said: ‘I remember there were times probably within the first couple years I lived there when I felt like I was just in this cycle of gross things and I didn’t know what to do.’ 

Bridget Marquardt, who was Hef’s girlfriend from 2001 until 2008 and part of Girls Next Door – a reality show on E! following her, Holly and Kendra Wilkinson as Hef’s girlfriends, spoke in the documentary as well.

In the clip, Bridget, 48, said: ‘Hef would be pretty abrasive in the way he said things to Holly. She came down with red lipstick one time and he, like, flipped out and said he hated red lipstick on girls… Even though other people could wear red lipstick and it didn’t seem to bother him.’

Adding that she noticed a shift in energy in Holly due to the environment at the Playboy mansion: ‘It was very frustrating to live with every day – all of the drama that was going on and the tensions. I could definitely see that she was getting depressed and sad and her demeanor was starting to change’ 

The A &  E show called Secrets of Playboy is set to premiere on January 24 at 9 pm only on A & E.
