Are financial woes the real reasons behind Hef's break ups with Holly and Kendra?
Reportedly teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, Hef has not only been forced to cut back on staffing, but now, in a bid to rake in some extra income, the public is being invited to the exclusive Playboy Mansion parties…at $5,000 to $25,000 a ticket. If there's a hot celebrity on the guest list, expect a ticket in the higher range!
The Mansion has long since been available to rent for corporate events, but this is the first time that anyone can pay to take a dip in the infamous Grotto, where clothing doesn't stay on for long.
What people don't know is that Hugh Hefner himself does not own the mansion - his company does. And yes, he pays rent on it. About $700,000 a year.
Not untouched by a waning national economy, Hef's stocks have plunged to a third of what they were worth a year ago.
So are the Bunnies included in that staffing cut? Has all the gold been dug?
Martha Lindeman, Playboy Enterprises’ senior vice president, said otherwise, of course. Apparently the Bunnies "are not even on the payroll. So, they would be the last to go."
Unless they're heading out on their own accord.
Poor poor Puffin.
