Summer 2015: Wilkinson furious with Madison's memoir
After Madison wrote in her tell-all that Wilkinson was "the fakest person I've ever met," a feud between the girls quickly started brewing. Wilkinson responded by claiming the entire memoir was a lie.
"Holly, you can tell, had this ulterior motive every minute being at the Mansion, and that motive was – it was clear as day – she wanted Hef's kids, she wanted a piece of Playboy and she wanted to marry Hef for, obviously, his will," Wilkinson said in an interview with People at the time. "That didn’t happen. So what do you think's going to happen? Revenge. So we're witnessing some revenge here."
"How could [Holly] want kids and [to] get married to him and then, next thing you know, say these types of things about Hef?" she added. "It’s just out of revenge, and I feel bad for Hef. But you know what? He’s an amazing human being."
Wilkinson also addressed Madison's book on her reality show, Kendra on Top.
"What Holly is saying is extremely false," Kendra claimed. "I'm like, 'Where did this s**t come from?' Someone needs to have a voice against this. Hef won't do it. He's too nice of a guy. It's just weird how someone can get away with such a thing."
Summer 2016: The feud continues
Nearly a year after the release of Madison's tell-all, Wilkinson said in an interview with SiriusXM satellite radio's Morning Men with Evan Cohen and Mike Babchik that she was still on Hefner's side.
"I'm protecting [Hugh Hefner], I'm protecting myself, I'm protecting the things that actually made us famous," she explained. "I'm very appreciative, and I'm very loyal and he did no wrong. He did no wrong to anyone, and if he did, you know, I would be here telling you. If I felt for once that he treated us unkind in any way, I would be here defending Holly. But I'm not."
The interview came a few days after Wilkinson slammed the comments Madison made in a different interview about feeling "a lot of fear" in the Mansion.
"She wasn't in fear with that d**k in her a** for a paycheck," Wilkinson tweeted.
"I want no part of a one-sided argument or feud where one woman lives to demoralize and degrade another woman," Madison responded in a statement to ET. "For those with unresolved issues, therapy works. You should try it."
