Playboy Mansion – especially when it comes to the property's notorious grotto.The sprawling pad is one of Los Angeles' most iconic properties and welcomed a host of celebrities and socialites before it closed its doors a few years ago.Holmby Hills was the home of Hugh Hefner, who lived there for more than four decades with a group of "girlfriends", that he called the "bunnies."But it wasn't until the magazine mogul was laid to rest in 2017 that many of his former acquaintances came forward to share their experiences.And this year, his former butler released memoirs to share his experiences in the notorious property.Stefan Tetenbaum, Hef's employee in the late ’70s and early ’80s, exposes “the dark underbelly of the treatment of his girlfriend and the other women who wanted to be part of the Playboy world professionally and behind the bedroom doors".And in his book, Stefan spoke candidly about preparing the Playboy Mansion and grotto for sex parties. Recalling setting up the scene for the first time, he said: “Inside the grotto, I lit dozens of small candles.“I set the towels and robes in their place and spread the baby oil around the cave where it would be convenient to get to.“The grotto itself was constructed with Palos Verdes stone.

Holly Madison exposes 'seedy' culture of Playboy Mansion and 'shadow property' rumours
Playboy Mansion – plus rumours the famous property had "shadow mansions".The Girls Next Door star, who was one of Hugh Hefner’s most prominent girlfriends, spoke about these little-known houses that allegedly lured young models.In a previous Q&A video on her YouTube channel, the model addressed rumours of a “secret video vault” in the Mansion allegedly containing celebrity sex tapes.Now, in a follow-up video, Holly tackled topics that arose on the recent Secrets of Playboy documentary series, including allegations of the existence of shadow mansions.During the documentary series, former housemate Jennifer Saginor claimed that Hefner had created “shadow mansions” to lure in new playmates.Saginor claimed that these “smaller versions” of the Playboy Mansion would house girls who came to LA looking for modelling opportunities, but ended up being a “facade”.Holly suggested that she “didn’t know” about these mini properties during her time living with the tycoon – but acknowledged that she is “not surprised” by the rumours.“Just because there’s this really seedy underbelly in Hollywood of people who kind of have money and they try to do the Hugh Hefner thing,” she said.“And they try to take advantage of every young woman who is just off the bus from the midwest trying to make it in Hollywood…"It’s gross, and I’m not surprised that there were shadow mansions."But, Holly did admit to hearing stories about what went on in the "shadow mansions".One friend of Hefner’s, whose name continuously cropped up during meet-ups, allegedly used to encourage women to come back to the properties after parties.The ex-Playmate said: “Girls who would come up to the pool parties or some of Hefner’s girlfriends who had moved out would later end up

Holly Madison exposes Playboy bunnies' 'toxic' relationships as they fought over Hefner
Playboy bunnies living at the Mansion developed “toxic” relationships as a result of jealousy over Hugh Hefner, Holly Madison has claimed.Holly was one of Hefner’s most prominent "girlfriends" and lived at the Mansion with the tycoon for seven years – before becoming disillusioned with the Playboy lifestyle.She has given a number of interviews criticising the magazine mogul since his death and once claimed that living inside the lavish LA property was a “cult-like” environment.Now, the model has responded to fans’ questions in a YouTube Q&A, where she opened up on the competition between the women who were vying for Hefner’s attention.And, even though the Mansion was sold after the 91 year-old died in 2017, Holly claimed that some Playboy bunnies continued to hold grudges to this day.“The situation between the women was so toxic up there,” she said, alleging that some of her former housemates were “still mad” about events that took place 20 years ago.“I feel like there was a whole kind of feeling that was bred at the Mansion and encouraged by Hef where everybody kind of felt like, ‘I’m not getting what I want out of this situation, and if it wasn’t for this other girl over there I’d totally be getting it.”And, because Holly was Hefner’s main girlfriend at one point, she fell victim to jealousy.The Girls Next Door star implied that backstabbing bunnies envied her status within the adult brand.“And then after they all left all of a sudden the reality show came in and we were on the cover of the magazine four times, so they’re mad, and they’re still mad,” she explained.“These people will come out against me and they try to make it look like they’re doing it out of loyalty to Hef.“But it’s like, at the time, when I was there

Playboy bunnies 'felt too ashamed to talk about Hefner’s penis size'
Playboy Mansion with Hugh Hefner has revealed that Playmates living at the property never talked about the tycoon’s penis.Tasha Reign has had an illustrious career as an adult performer, filming her first adult movie at the age of 21, as well as modelling.One of her biggest dreams was to feature in Playboy magazine.And although she never became one of Hefner’s official girlfriends, Tasha spent a lot of time at his mansion.Recently interviewed by ex-porn star Alexis Texas on her Private Talks podcast, the model shared her experiences of being close to the titan of the adult industry.Tasha was asked by Alexis whether she had ever slept with Hefner, and replied: “I never saw his d***, but he liked that kind of control.” Alexis asked: “Did anybody in the house talk about it? Was it big, was it small?” “Nobody talked about it because I think there was a shame in the fact that whoever was having sex with him was having sex with him, that was like a shame thing. “So they weren’t like, ‘oh his c**k’s like this’, they were like, ‘I never hooked up with him’.”In fact, working with Playboy during Hefner’s later years, Tasha admitted that the Hef she knew was very different to the iconic entrepreneurial figurehead that he had been described as.“He was literally decrepit – not in a mean way – he was ageing and he wasn’t doing well, it was hard for him to even be mobile," she remembered.

Max Verstappen could buy Playboy Mansion three times over with staggering new F1 wage
Max Verstappen could buy the Playboy Mansion three times over with his staggering new Formula One wage.The reigning F1 champion has been handsomely rewarded by Red Bull for winning their first Driver's title since 2013 last year.Verstappen already had a contract in place for the upcoming season worth £18million-a-year.But now the Dutchman has agreed an extension to his deal until 2028 which will reportedly see him pocket a salary of £37m - more than double his current pay packet.He will earn £221m in total over the course of the seven-year spell, which is the biggest driver contract in F1 history.It is in fact so large that it equates to approximately three times the value of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner's former residence.The Playboy Mansion, near Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, was sold in 2016, a year before Hefner passed away.It had originally been listed for $200m (£149m), but the price fell to half of that figure by the time it was sold, as per People.Is Verstappen being overpaid? Let us know in the comments section.The £74.5m fee would leave Verstappen searching for a couple of extra millions on top of his contract if he wanted to splash that amount three times over.But we're sure he'd have no problem finding the extra cash from his lengthy list of sponsorship deals.He would have to deal with Daren Metropoulos, the son of billionaire investor Dean Metropoulos, who bought the property and uses it for corporate activities.Speaking about his contract renewal, Verstappen said: "I really enjoy being part of the Oracle Red Bull Racing Team, so choosing to stay to the 2028 season was an easy decision."I love this team and last year was simply incredible, our goal since we came together in 2016 was to win the championship
