British twins say staying in Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion is like prison

5 January 2015 / 1 year 9 months ago

It seems that all good things come to an end, even if you're a Playboy model or Hugh Hefner himself.

Some of the bunnies have now spoken out saying that life in the Playboy Mansion is now more like spending time in a prison.

Due to the 88-year-old's increasing frailty, his new married life and even being hit by economic recession, the world's most famous playboy is more likely to invite one of the girls for a game of tennis instead of a dip in the hot tub.

Twins Carla and Melissa Howe, who split their time between living in the Californian mansion and the UK, in their hometime Slough, also say that life is a lot more restricted than it used to be.

"When you’re here you have to be in by the 9pm curfew. You’re not allowed to invite any friends up to see you. You’re definitely not allowed male visitors. If you break the rules you get banned. Once you’re out, you’re out, you can’t come back.

"Hef’s wife Crystal went to do a DJ set miles away so she had to stay overnight. But she was still back by 2pm the next day", said Carla.

Hugh has been married to 28-year-old Crystal for the last couple of years and she seems to have finally made an honest man out of him, much to Carla's relief.

Probably so she can star in certain homemade movies with Wiz Khalifa.

"In the past he would have slept with all the girls. We’ve heard stories about him having 16 girls in the grotto and once he’d finished they would be passed on to the next man there.

"But now it’s not like that. To be honest, he’s so old now I couldn’t imagine him trying to make a move. He has to walk with people around him because he’s frail. It’s like being with a grandad. The only woman that sleeps with him now is Crystal," said Carla.

Despite Hefner's fading interest in having affairs with the girls, he maintains the business side like always although it means strict rules for the girls.

Like a lot of companies there has been cutbacks and the £630 per week allowance, each bunny used to receive has been scrapped.

Now they have to make do with free room and board and it seems that twins Melissa and Carla, while a little disappointed that life in the mansion is a lot more calmer than it used to be in the 1950s, their mum is certainly relieved.

"She’d like us to move on to something classier," said Melissa.
