Reality television star and former Hugh Hefner consort Holly Madison is getting a tremendous amount of attention for the fact that she insured her breasts for $1 million. Which, to my mind, is kind of like Rebecca Black insuring her Auto-Tuned voice. Both are synthetic, manufactured, and more the product of other people’s skill than anything for which the “star” can take credit.
Surprisingly, Madison hasn’t ventured very far into literary endeavors. As near as I can tell, her one book is The Showgirl Next Door: Holly Madison’s Las Vegas, a sort of guidebook to Sin City. It’s a bit surprising that Madison hasn’t released a biography or memoir, given the bestselling success of her fellow Hef girlfriend, Kendra Wilkinson.
Wilkinson’s first book, Sliding into Home was released in 2010 and reached the upper echelons of the New York Times bestseller list. Her new book, Being Kendra: Cribs, Cocktails, and Getting My Sexy Back was recently released. In the latest book, Wilkinson reportedly discusses her time on the television show Dancing with the Stars, which evidently was not a fun experience for the model and mom.
According to published reports, Wilkinson writes in summation of her time on the highly rated dancing show that, “Part of me thought this is what selling out looks like.”
Apparently, pretending to be an eighty-odd-year-old man’s girlfriend, even though you only see him once a day is not challenging at all, but doing the foxtrot is “selling out”?
Back to Madison for a moment… The amazing aspect of her
publicity stunt insurance policy is her statement that if she if she was out of work for a few months, “I’d probably be out a million dollars.” Wow, that’s a huge amount of money. Better start talking to the AFLAC Duck.
