Holly Madison's book has been selling really well, but this former Playboy Playmate just isn't buying it.
Her words, we mean. And, well, probably the memoir, too.

In her tell-all tale, Down the Rabbit Hole, Holly described all sorts of horrific things she felt and witnessed while living with Hugh Hefner in the iconic mansion.
But, Izabella St. James has told Daily Mail Online that readers shouldn't believe a word from the bestseller, because she says everything she wrote about Hef and his sexcapades was a lie:
"She is selling the book by making outrageous claims, and doing tell-all interviews where she says he degraded her and calls it the house of horrors. If it was the house of horrors, she was the most willing and happy participant of it all."
The 39-year-old lived with Holly in the famed estate for two years, and says she had a strong obsession with the pornographic publication's head honcho:
"Holly chose to just completely lie and omit that she was absolutely, completely obsessed with Hugh … The reality is, Holly had a calculated plan to get in there and be Hef's girlfriend. She was completely obsessed with him, to the point where she tried to make herself look like him."
In addition to that, Izabella also said that she would match Hugh's outfits when they went out and eat the same meals he did.
She also says the memoir is a way to get back at Hef because she's bitter that he didn't marry her. While she was on Girls Next Door, Holly often revealed that she wished the magazine mogul would break his "no marriage" rule and tie the knot.
Izabella described some of what she believes was disturbing behavior from the 35-year-old, saying:
"She is just like Single White Female. She stalked him. She would go through his stuff. She tried to look like the ex-girlfriends he liked the most."
She also called out Holly's criticism of the 89-year-old's preferred sexual acts, explaining that the reality star was the one who chose to do the freakiest things in Hef's bedroom:
"She became useful to him because from the very beginning she was willing to do things that other girls were not willing to do … Holly became his main girlfriend by default because no one else wanted that position."
Izabella says she feels bad for Holly, but that she actively chose to stay in the mansion for seven years, when she could have left earlier if that's what she really wanted:
"She portrays herself as a victim … She does not take any responsibility for her choices or actions. Instead, she chooses to vilify Hef, vilify former boyfriend Criss Angel, vilify the friends she never made and the girls who didn't like her."
What do U guys think? Is Holly embellishing her story to make a pretty penny? Or is there truth to the tale?
