What Ever Happened To All Of Playboy's 'Girls Next Door'?

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. 

  • Before attending college, Marquardt wrote a letter to the Playboy Mansion to ask how to become a Playmate. After graduating from Sacramento State, she moved to Los Angeles and worked as a model and actress. Many visits to the Playboy Mansion later, she was finally asked to live there when she was 29.

    Kendra has easily been the busiest Bunny since the end of the show. She published a memoir, Sliding Into Home, in 2010. She's starred in several reality TV programs, including Worst Cooks in America and Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars

    Kendra and her then-husband, former NFL player Hank Baskett, welcomed a son, Hank Randall Baskett IV, in December 2009 and a daughter, Alijah Mary Baskett, in May 2014. The couple divorced in 2018.

    After The Girls Next Door, Marquardt went on to host the TLC series Bridget’s Sexiest BeachesAccording to IMDb, she produced a reality film, Just Add Bridget, in 2010. The movie followed Marquardt and then-boyfriend Nicholas Carpenter on their “daily adventures.” The couple got engaged in 2015. She makes aprons by hand and sells them on her Etsy page

  • Madison modeled for Hawaiian Tropic and worked at Hooters before drawing the attention of the Playboy millionaire. It wasn't long before the Astoria, Oregon, native moved into the Playboy Mansion and became one of Hefner's girlfriends. By the time The Girls Next Door hit the air, Madison had already been living in the mansion for three years.
