Don't Call Holly Madison's Playboy Job Fake
What better place to address rumors on her not fake former job at Playboy than her MySpace blog?
It seems in addition to moving on from her relationship with Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner (when she fell in love with Mindfreak Criss Angel), she has quit her job at the famous mag – and has good reasons for it, too.
"When one is trying to move on with their life, it isn't beneficial to spend so much time on something that doesn't pay much and sadly enough is no longer rewarding to you," Madison writes online.
Three specific reasons for leaving: The job doesn't pay enough for her to commute from Las Vegas, where she now resides to be close to Angel, it's no longer challenging and it was just plain awkward.
"I never cared about the salary when I got the job – I made my money doing Girls Next Door, and I just did the job because I loved it," she writes. "It annoys me when people call the job fake as if it was just a set-up for the show.
"If I had wanted a fake career," she adds, "I would have stuck with the jewelry line because that required very little of my time."
