Aspiring bunnies beware: according to Holly Madison, playing house with the Playboy bunch can bring you to the brink.
In her upcoming autobiography, 'Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny,' the 35-year-old ex-bunny dishes on her dramatic time with Hugh Hefner and reveals that, contrary to popular belief, life in the mansion was not always a party. In fact, she says, it was "a nightmare".

According to the book's promotional materials: "After losing her identity, her sense of self-worth, and her hope for the future, Holly found herself sitting alone in a bathtub contemplating suicide."
Holly and her fellow bunnies Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson are well known as the legendary Hef's girlfrends on the popular E! reality series 'The Girls Next Door', which ran for five seasons.
