Holly Madison is an American television personality and show girl with an estimated net worth of $6 million. She was born in Oregon on December 23, 1979. Her parents are Steve and Patsy Cullen. She has two siblings, a brother and a sister, who are both younger than she. Her father worked for the maritime industry and spent much of their time together traveling with the family for his work and other ventures. She was a child who lived in many places, from Alaska to Oregon and beyond. She did not have roots much as a child. As a child, she enjoyed school and she did attend college. Most people assume that with her background, college was not something she bothered with. However, she did go to school at both Portland State University where she majored in theater and in psychology, and she finished up at Loyola Marymount University.
During her college year, she became a model for Hawaiian Tropic. She had to pay for her classes, and that was the easiest way for her to make money. She also worked at Hooters to make ends meet. While modeling, however, she was taken to the Playboy Mansion more than once, and she had jobs there as a model for several parties and other things that the mansion hosts on a regular basis. During her visits over the course of a year, she caught the attention of Hugh Hefner. A year after she met him for the first time, he invited her to move into the mansion with him. She became the number one girlfriend of the man with all the girlfriends back in 2001, and she made it quite clear she was ready to get married and have babies. In 2002, she was number one. She was not a playmate, but she and the two girls that lived with Hef at the time, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt, were often featured in the magazine.
During her time in the house, she became a reality television star. She modeled, she wrote a book and she moved out of the house to become a show girl in Las Vegas. It was there that she began dating other high-profile men, but these men were much closer to her age than she ever was. She became the performer at Peep Show, and she was also given her own reality show following her around Las Vegas. She also wrote a book about her time at the Playboy Mansion, and it was well-received. She began dating Pasquale Rotella in 2011, and the two announced that they were expecting their first baby, a little girl, in 2012. The little girl was born in 2013. The couple wed the same year, and she announced in 2016 that she is having another baby with her husband in the late summer of 2016. Her life is not where she imagined it would become, but her net worth is substantial and mostly because of the fame of her reality television series and her relationship with Hugh Hefner.
