While former Playboy Bunny Bridget Marquardt may have been your favorite part of the mid-2000s show The Girls Next Door, apparently, the blonde beauty has been shunned from the Playboy Mansion!
Hugh Hefner’s ex recently appeared on the Australian talk show The Morning Show and revealed that she hasn’t seen Hef or anyone related to Playboy for quite some time.

The 43-year-old admitted to being in contact with her 91-year-old beau “for a while” after leaving the mansion in 2009, but somewhere along the line, things changed.
"I was still going back to some of the parties. Occasionally, my boyfriend [Nick Carpenter] and I would go back," she said. “I was still in touch with Hef — and then we kind of lost contact. He told me there was always an open door, but I heard that that's not quite true lately. I called and tried to go to the mansion earlier this year...but I'm just getting the runaround."

Hugh, who has been married to Crystal Harris for five years, has not given any comment regarding Bridget’s claims.
Besides the hard feelings with the mansion, the blonde beauty also came clean about her struggles to conceive and her multiple failed IVF treatments.

"None of my eggs survived,” she said on the show. “It was devastating for me. All this time I thought I had an amazing insurance policy, but it didn't work out. I thought I was doing the smart thing and the right thing, and I do still think it was. It just didn't work out for me."
As fans know, Bridget has been open about her infertility issues and even talks about it on her YouTube channel. And even though the inability to conceive is upsetting for the model, she’s keeping it positive with videos about beauty, food, family, and fitness!
And we have to say, she looks amazing!

From 2002 to 2008, the now-43-year-old Playboy model was one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends who starred on The Girls Next Door. These days, she has been busy vlogging on YouTube and managing her Etsy shop, where she sells handmade aprons and hair bows.
