Bunny Tales : Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion Paperback

2 out of 5 (1 rating)


When this beach bunny caught the eye of Hugh Hefner at an L.A. nightclub, Izabella St. James was looking for a fun break from studying for the bar.

As the latest Girlfriend of the Playboy founder, her "break" lasted two years, but life behind the gates of the Playboy Mansion was anything but fun.

Sure there were parties, presents, puppies, and plastic surgery; but there was also a curfew, a strict regimen of who sits where on movie night, limited contact with the outside world, and a sex life that was anything but wild and crazy.

While the E! reality show, The Girls Next Door, has been a ratings hit, each of the three Playboy Bunnies in the series has since left the Mansion in newsworthy ways: one is engaged to a football player, and Hugh's "main" Girlfriend has finally understood that there would be no fairy-tale marriage and family with the man she literally transformed her life for.

Izabella was there to witness how each of these relationships formed, where each Girlfriend fell in the pecking--and bed--order, and when, exactly, the fabled life turned shabby and cheap. From catfights to sneaking in boyfriends, from high-profile guests in the Grotto to the bizarre rituals of the octogenarian at the center of the sexual revolution, Bunny Tales is compulsively readable and endlessly entertaining!

Review by

Being a fan of The Girls Next Door (and Holly Madison, more specifically), I was very excited to get this book. Izabella does mention all three girls in passing, but is very catty rather than neutral and observatory. I would have preferred to read a more straight forward take than a whiney, spoiled view.However, for anyone interested in Hugh Hefner, Holly, Bridget, or Kendra, this is a quick and easy read to learn just a little bit more about them and the Playboy lifestyle.
