The Girls Next Door, a reality lifestyle show from the mid-aughts about the magical lives of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends, was a fun and frothy look at the existential heights Playboy Bunnies can reach. But where are the women of The Girls Next Door now?

Filled to the bubbly brim with cute puppies, seminude volleyball games, and unintentional humor, The Girls Next Door offered a glimpse into what life was really like inside the infamous Playboy Mansion. 

Even though the show ended in 2009, the stars have all remained in the public eye - especially Kendra Wilkinson, whose fame has arguably transcended the show's. If you're unsure what happened to the other five stars, you'll enjoy this list.
