“In my relationship with Hef, things had gotten so bad that he became verbally abusive overnight and I was panicking,” she recalled.
“It got to the point where everyone else was leaving and I was the only one and you’re just dealing with that other person one on one, then you really start to see their true character.
“I just panicked. I was like I didn’t care what I gave up, I have to get out of here.”
When the show finally ended in 2010, Madison said she was “a little sad that the fun times were slipping away, but not to the point where I stopped to reconsider my decision.”
