Madison was born Hollin Sue Cullen in Astoria, Oregon. Her father’s work in the timber industry led her family to travel. From ages two through eleven, she lived on Prince of Wales Island, near Ketchikan, Alaska. Her family later moved back to Oregon, this time to St. Helens. She attended Portland State University for two years, majoring in both theater and psychology. In 1999, Madison moved to Los Angeles to attend Loyola Marymount University.
To afford college tuition, she competed to become a Hawaiian Tropic model and worked at Hooters. Madison’s appearance at these venues led to invitations to Hefner’s Playboy Mansion. After more than a year of such visits, Madison was invited to move in. She became one of Hefner’s seven official girlfriends in August 2001. In February 2002, after all but two of his girlfriends left, Madison became Hefner’s “#1 Girl” and moved into his bedroom. She was named among the top Hooters girls of all time in 2008 as part of the restaurant’s twenty-fifth anniversary.
Holly Madison Bio
Madison was chosen to replace Jewel Kilcher on Dancing with the Stars after Kilcher was forced to withdraw (along with Nancy O’Dell) due to injuries sustained during rehearsal. She partnered with Dmitry Chaplin. On March 31, 2009 Holly and Dmitry were voted off the show in a double elimination episode.
Madison stars in topless burlesque show Peepshow at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. She was brought in to replace Kelly Monaco after Monaco’s three month contract was up. Madison was likewise initially signed to a three month contract, but she has since extended her contract to a full year.
Like former The Girls Next Door co-star, Kendra Wilkinson, Madison stars in her own reality show, Holly’s World, which revolves around her life at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. “It’s all good-natured and not mean like other reality shows,” Madison said of her show. “I’m really excited about the new series because I am also getting a legitimate co-producer credit for all the work I do behind the camera. It’s not a vanity credit. I’m super excited to learn from the best and take on new responsibilities.” The show premiered with a “preview episode” on December 6, 2009, but will not start airing regularly until June 2010.
