    I totally see Bridget's happy-go lucky attitude as a put on. It's just so forced that it's not even funny anymore. You're someone's 2/3 choice, why are you smiling all the time? Is it the payments?

    I think this'll be the the last season. This show is losing steam fast. Doesn't this kind of life get old fast?

    I know they've all chosen to be in this situation for various reasons, but the reality of their lives seems pretty awful. These women are imprisoned in this decaying old house with urine-drenched carpets. They're forced to have fake balloon boobs, constantly bleach their hair a color so damaging it all falls out periodically and they can't have boyfriends or a normal sex life with people even relatively close to their ages.

    Holly must have had some horrible childhood/family life to actually choose this. Kendra and Bridget have used this as an opportunity -- they know it won't last and they'll move on to other things. But Holly really seems to like this way of life and she believes Hef is her cash cow. I don't think he'll ever marry her 'cause he's not going to divorce the last wife. It'll cost too much. Hef's not that rich. And there are too many others (including his young sons) way ahead of her in line to get whatever he does have.

    Holly would be much better off hooking up with one of those rich producers lurking around LA. She should stop wasting her time with Hef and start the search for a new sugar daddy soon before her youth and beauty are gone and then she'll really be left with nothing -- and she'd actually have to get -- OH NO -- a real job! Or she can go back to hooking. This has been the perfect experience for her resume in that field.

    The urine-drenched carpets are from the girl's own dogs because they allow it to happen, so they have only themselves to blame for that. Yes, the carpets do get cleaned, but they get that way from their dogs. No one 'forces' them to have plastic surgery, they are paid for by Hefer if they choose to have it, but they are neither forced nor encouraged, it's simply their own personal life choices. Their hair colors are also their own choices, no one forces them to have it one color or the other -- platinum blonde is simply the trend in slutville as it has been for many years. And as all of the ex-girlfriends have said, as far as hair care and conditioning, these girls probably have the healthiest hair around because they have a carte-blanche Playboy account at the salons to get all the hair/cosmetic care they want, and they use it often. The ex-girlfriends have talked about being amazed at how healthy the official girlfriends' hair is, because they would have thought it wouldn't be. And as far as having boyfriends or a normal sex life.. that too is their own choice.

    That's why this show is kinda fascinating. No one is holding these girls prisoner, they can leave anytime they want. Yes, they'll give up the allowances, gifts, free voluntary cosmetic surgery, free hair care, big expense account for clothing, free housing, free food, etc... but it's their own free will choice, and they all knew what they were getting into before accepting that diamond/platinum necklace making them official girlfriends. They use Hefner to get what they want for a time, and he uses them to keep his image (and something else) up. He uses them, they use him. Truth be told, they probably are getting much more out of the arrangement than he is. If they want to provide sex to Hefner twice a week to get the perks they get, it's their choice, and they knew it before becoming official girlfriends. These girls are not being held hostage, and if one were to drop, there are a hundred more waiting eagerly to take their place.

    Hard to believe this lifestyle still exists anymore, but it does, and that's why it's an interesting show, though admittedly one without a long life since there's only so much that can be shown before it becomes boring. Every time I think about what Hef and the girls do in their personal lives, I just go "ewww" out loud, but no matter what... these girls are not innocents, they know what they're doing and they are there quite willingly and stepped over other girls just to get those positions. I feel sorry for anyone who thinks this is what they should strive for, but I certainly can't feel sorry for the girls being in the position since they wanted it so badly and went in with open eyes.
    I live in my own world. But it's ok, they know me there.

    I agree with you completely, Nemesis. Great insight as why this show is fascinating to both men and women (and myself included, though I hate to admit it). The surface personalities the girls portray are mostly likeable, but if you scratch that surface just a little, little bit, it ain't too pretty.

    These women clearly are prostitutes -- not girlfriends. It's really annoying to me that Hef is trying to make this somehow more wholesome and quaint with the presence of Kendra's and Bridget's family members and their supposed approval. Only Kendra's hilarious grandma is appropriately skeeved out by this set-up.

    This falls in line with the hypocritical Playboy philosphy that they're "classy" (and therefore somehow better than hardcore porn). It's still porn -- maybe cleaned up porn -- but still porn. I think Hef wouldn't want his empire to be grouped in with the hardcore stuff, but in the end what's the diff?

    Oh, I know! And the family member bit that creeped me out most was when Bridget brought her sister (it was sister, right?) to the mansion. Now there is a situation that I did feel sorry for someone, although I don't know if I should have or not. I can't remember how old Bridget's sister was, but I would NEVER bring my little sis to a place like that if I was living the life Bridget is. And I'd never do anything to make her think this is a life to aspire to. I'm not saying she should be ashamed of Bridget, that's between them and sisterly bonds are unique, but I would think Bridget would want her little sister to stay far away from Hefner and the lifestyle there. And although a makeover is a nice gift for a lot of girls, did they really have to slut her up with the boobs falling out of her top and the dress barely covering her assets? I just honestly can't see how Bridget could do that, and allow Kendra and Holly to help do that to sis. Even if it were something sis wanted, I still can't get past the 'protect your little sis' factor that was missing there I really felt badly for her sister.

    Not to mention that though he wouldn't have a pornstar pose naked, Playboy does own 3 nc-17 videos including one called vivid(don't know if it's the same as vivid video).

    Bridget's little sis seems sweet. She's cute, but somewhat plain and definitely a lot younger than Bridget -- at least 10 years. Poor girl seem very lacking in self esteem and that she's looking to Bridget as a role model is frightening. She's exactly how Bridget would look without: nose job, boob job, extensive lipo, botox, hair straightening, bleaching, extensions, tons and tons of makeup and who knows what else. I know she's of age but Bridget having her there is the same as a prostitute bring her child along while she works. Very creepy indeed.

    Playboy has built its empire on the notion that the women it features are all the "girls next door". What BS! They never want these "girls" to admit that they've been strippers -- which many of them no doubt have.

    Anna Nicole was a playmate of the year and she was a dancer in "tittie bars" in Houston only a few years earlier. Of course this was never mentioned in Playboy. On the show, it's never mentioned that Kendra was an 18 year old stripper in San Diego. They say she was a dental hygienist. Oh yeah! Things must have been pretty rough for little Miss Kendra to be stripping at 18. And who knows what kinds of horrible backgrounds Bridget and Holly have. Some have said their oddball behavior seems very typical of the after-effects of childhood sexual abuse. Like I said earlier, scratch the facade of the "girls" just a wee little bit and what you'll find is not pretty.

    You can put a designer dress and diamonds on a pig but it's still a pig...

    Hefner can use all the catch phrases he wants to describe his "situation" as "classy" and the women as "girl next door" types.....make it sound cutesy, loving, respectful all he wants..... wrap it in a Tiffany box with a white satin ribbon... but it is what it is.

    The girls are prostitutes and he pays them to have sex with him, which makes him a plain old john just like any other guy who hires a street whore.

    Hefner can prattle on all he wants about Playboy being "sophisticated" and "upscale"... blah blah blah... it's still porn and he's gotten rich off it just like Larry Flynt and Bob Guccione.

    While I agree with all of the above posters, I try not to think of the seamy side of the girls and their lifestyles. They are obviously with Hef for the monetary things he can give them, but I cannot imagine that they are truly happy with their lives.

    Guess the bottom line is this is a mostly silly, harmless show. The "girls" are nice enough to each on the surface. But Holly obviously wants these 2 out. Kendra probably can't wait till her contract is up at the end of this season so she can take off. They'll need a bulldozer to get Bridget out. I can see Bridget at 80 still working the fake boobs, fake hair and slinky, dopey costumes.

    The problem is they're running out of ideas. We've already seen enough of the parties. It's getting really repetitive and boring. Kendra is the jock and Bridget likes to dress up in costumes and fuss with her pets -- we get it!

    I bet when came up with the idea for this show, they thought that only men would be watching but it's so bizzarely facinating that probably more women than men actually watch.
