"I was still going back to some of the parties,” Marquardt told Australia’s The Morning Show in July. “Occasionally, my boyfriend [Nick Carpenter and] I would go back. I was still in touch with Hef -- and then we kind of lost contact."
Marquardt isn’t the only former Playboy bunny from the series to speak out. Wilkinson told ET that Hefner “changed” her life and made her the person she is today.
"I couldn't be more thankful for our friendship and our time together,” she said.
