The third member of ‘The Girls Next Door’ has broken her silence on the feud between Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson.
As Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson continue their feud, the third former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner and their ‘Girls Next Door’ co-star Bridget Marquardt has finally weighed in. Appearing on ‘Hollywood Today Live’, Bridget gave her opinion on the ongoing battle between her former housemates, but she’s not picking sides.
Bridget Marquardt has weighed in on Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson’s feud.
"It's kind of sad. Like I feel like we have a bond, the three of us. It's kind of like, it's not like a sisterhood, it's not like friends, I mean it is friends, but it's something totally different than any other relationship you could possibly imagine," she said.
Wilkinson is thrilled about the baby, but not about the pregnancy changes.
Reality star Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett is going through her second pregnancy. And while she might look as radiant and enthusiastic as ever, the blonde beauty makes no qualms about the difficulties of pregnancy. It’s no easier the second time around, as Wilkinson revealed to E! News.
Kendra's normally slender figure is already showing the first signs of pregnancy.
"This was four months with Little Hank [Jr.]," she tells E! News’s Catt Sadler and Terrence Jenkins. "I'm actually showing a lot. If I'm wearing tighter clothes, people are like, 'Are you like four months?' I'm like, 'No, I'm still at the end of my first trimester.' I'm still feeling it, feeling the grossness and the pain."
Kendra Wilkinson was taken to hospital yesterday after being involved in a car crash.
Kendra Wilkinson in hospital: Model/actress Kendra Wilkinson was rushed to hospital after she crashed her car in Tarzana, Los Angeles, early on Sunday (21 April). The former Playboy model escaped the accident without serious injury and was taken to Providence Tarzana Medical Center shortly after the crash, where she was diagnosed to only have sustained minor bruising and shock, US Weekly first reported.
Kendra Wilkinson was lucky to escape her crash almost injury free
Wilkinson, the former Mrs Hank Baskett III and mom to Hank Baskett IV, 3, had apparently been discharged from the hospital already when she was spotted arriving PTMC, with doctors happy with her immediate check-up following the accident. It is believed that Kendra is still in a stable state, however neither she or any representative has come forward yet to update us on her condition. A source speaking to US Magazine revealed that Kendra entered the hospital feeling "really sore" and "in shock," with another source revealing that the star had visited the hospital for a check up as well as her initial admission.
Nicole Eggert has become the latest in a line of celebrities to succumb to the danger element of 'Splash'.
The TV show “Splash” has a reputation of being quite dangerous for its contestants and Nicole Eggert is just the latest in a list of celebs, injured during the difficult diving stunts. The former Baywatch girl "bungl[ed] a high-dive and brutally back-flopp[ed] into the pool" while taping an upcoming episode of Splash on Thursday, TMZ reported. She was rushed to a hospital immediately thereafter. The dive was meant to include several backflips and probably would have been quite impressive, if she had actually managed it. A rotation error reportedly resulted in her hitting the water back first and sustaining some serious injuries. Ouch. Even describing that is painful."[She had] a bad landing," a Splash representative subsequently confirmed to E! News. "She is currently consulting with a doctor.” No announcement has been made yet about whether Eggert will be able to return to the show.

Katherine Webb ordered to leave the contest by a doctor
Katherine Webb quits Splash, as the show loses yet another star. Reality shows are supposed to bring out the best in our minor celebrities. They are supposed to overcome their fears, find talents they never knew they had, provide inspiration for viewers at home, move us with their emotional backstory. Sadly, the US version of Splash hasn’t quite had that effect, so far.
If you’re unfamiliar with Splash, it’s a show in which a group of semi-famous almost-celebrities learn to do what loads of people do when they’re a kid: Jump off things, into water. Now, to be fair, the skill level required for the whole jumping off things in to water contest does go a little bit higher, as the season progresses, than most people would manage during a summer vacation at the hotel pool. However, Splash has been a little lacking in drama. And now, Katherine Webb has quit – not in a scandalous fit of frustration or after the producers decided to do a doping test. Nothing that dramatic. She’s hurt herself and the doctor says ‘no more.’ Rumors that she quit because she realised how boring the show was are currently unconfirmed, mainly because we just started that rumor right now. “I went to the doctor and, unfortunately, he told me I'm out of the competition,” the 23 year-old model explained. She later tweeted “Thank you guys for all the support! Means so much. Love you guys."
She was replaced by Louie Anderson, who was booted off the show previously and wasted no time in dropping right back out again, the lily-livered so-and-so. “I know I have very little chance of winning this competition," he said. "And I am going home, and I am going to defer to Brandi (Chastain) because she has a chance to win this competition." And let's not forget Kendra Wilkinson who left sobbing because she was scared of heights. Splash, ladies and gentlemen: really bringing out the fighting spirit in these minor celebrities.

Hugh Hefner's ex couldn't face the pressures of the 23ft board
Kendra Wilkinson quits Splash in a dramatic fashion: the reality star just couldn’t cope with the demands of throwing herself head first into a pool of water from a 23ft drop. Love the show or hate it, this is surely what the producers of Splash must have had their fingers crossed for.
People surely don’t watch the celebrity TV diving show because they care about whether or not a bunch of half-rate celebrities can actually execute a perfect somersault in the tuck position. They want tears. They want back-stories. They want phobias. They want the smug satisfaction that only comes from being sat on a sofa with a tin of beer and a packet of chips, watching someone fail to do something physically challenging that they have been hitherto unable to do, in their lives.
And so, Kendra Wilkinson is the biggest hero of last week’s Splash, as she provided the most entertainment, by quitting. Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriend took the walk along the diving platform but the pressure was just too much and she walked back down, crying the whole way and apologizing. “I'm so sorry everybody," she said. "It's bittersweet. One thing I don't do is quit. this is the first time in my life I've quit something. This will haunt me for the rest of my life.” Meanwhile, viewers took another slug of beer and muttered… ‘at last, a quitter… at last.’

Great start for the celebrity diving contest
Splash has heralded great news for ABC in the latest network ratings, with the celebrity, um, diving reality competition giving the network a much needed boost that continued throughout Tuesday night (March 19, 2013), although it was still some way behind CBS, which had drama combo NCIS and The Voice.
Nevertheless, the debut of the reality show will be heartening to ABC, not least because of the effect that it had on their schedule of the evening as a whole. It averaged a 2.6/8 in adults 18-49 and 8.8 million viewers overall in the 8pm, beating out Fox’s competing Hell’s Kitchen, which took a 2.0/6 in the 18-49 category and 4.9 million viewers overall. It also placed second to NCIS, and had the top 18-49 score for the premiere of an unscripted series on any network since Fox’s The X-Factor back in September 2011.
The success of Splash was sustained, which meant that a special of Dancing With the Stars called Exclusive First Look took 2.1/6 in the 18-49 category and 9.6 million viewers overall, while at 10pm drama Body of Proof took 1.5/4 in the 18-49 category and 8.3 million viewers overall. That was a rise of 25% in the 18-49 category from the previous week. A word of warning to ABC though, because NBC returns with its hugely popular The Voice next week, meaning that Tuesdays are set to get even more competitive. Splash stars former Hugh Hefner girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson and defensive line man in the NFL, Ndamukong Suh.

ABC's Splash is based on ITV's UK version, which pulled in millions of viewers despite being derided by critics and audiences alike.
Splash, ABC's new reality diving competition, premiered on Tuesday evening (March 19, 2013), to a mixed response on Twitter. Based on the UK version hosted by Olympic diver Tom Daley, Splash sees 10 celebrities train for six weeks and perform at least one dive for a live audience each way. The dives are usually terrible.
Though the UK version was recently renewed for series two, the show was derided for its slow pacing, bad diving, poor celebrity names and clueless judges. The problem is, clearly, that a dive into a swimming pool lasts about one second, while the show lasts for about, one hour. As such, the show is filled with a whole lot of nothing.
Last night saw actress Keshia Knight Pulliam perform a frankly dismal dive, before Louie Anderson did a little better. Model Katherine Webb also leapt into the pool, while Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did, err, his best. Judging the contestants is Dave Boudia and Steve Foley, two Olympians who lack any sort of on-screen charisma, which makes things worse.

ITV's Splash will be moving to ABC, featuring like Kendra Wilkinson, comedian Louis Anderson and basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
When ITV’s Splash – a reality show about celebs learning to high dive first launched, it was nearly laughed off the air.
Well, look at it now! The format is moving on to bigger and better things – namely, the American air in the face of ABC. The show lines up the typical suspects of a reality program – some semi-celebs, actors, atheletes, a beauty queen and... Louis Anderson? Well, yes, the 59-year-old comedian will be part of the show and everyone expects him to serve up some laughs with his performance on the diving board. Anderson himself isn’t offended by that, though, in fact, he’d enjoy it, apparently: "I didn't look at this as a show that's going to make fun of me even though some people probably do when they hear about it," Anderson said on a recent morning while practicing at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center in Pasadena. "But they'll be surprised that it won't be what they think it's going to be.... Is it more impressive to see someone who's fit dive off a 5-meter or someone who's fat?"
Kendra Wilkinson is just one of the contestants, hard at work for the upcoming Splash pilot.

There was only really ever one woman for Hugh Hefner, despite his many years surrounded by beauties at the Playboy mansion. The magazine mogul was left devastated this week following the death of his long-time secretary Mary O'Connor. The Playboy founder, 86, announced the sad news of O'Connor's passing on Twitter, saying, "Mary passed away today. We loved her more than words can say."
The two worked closely for over 40 years, with O'Connor even making appearances on his hit E! show The Girls Next Door. "Hef and everyone at the mansion are taking this really hard," an insider tells US Weekly magazine. Though the cause of the death is unknown, O'Connor was known to have been in poor health. Hefner recently tweeted, "Crystal [Harris] is going to visit Mary O'Connor, who is not doing very well. Mary has our prayers. We all love her." Hefner married Harris on New Years' Eve, though had it not been for O'Connor, the couple would likely have stayed apart following the breakdown of their engagement in June 2011. "It's Mary O'Connor that brought Crystal Harris back," Hefner explained on Twitter last June. "Crystal was miserable & said so. Mary told Crystal to write and tell me, which she did."
Kendra Wilkinson, one of the most famous Playboy bunnies of recent times, tweeted, "RIP Mary O'Connor. She was an amazing person who helped me through so much." Mary's husband 'Captain Bob' passed away around nine months ago.

Holly Madison, a former Playboy model and television personality is expecting her first child, and has revealed she no-longer talks to some of her old co-stars.
Former Playboy model and television personality, Holly Madison, is expecting a baby girl in March, and seems unlikely to be asking former 'Girls Next Door' co-star Kendra Wilkinson for any help with the child, as they apparently don't speak anymore. Madison is planning to marry her current boyfriend Pasquale Rotella after the birth of their baby.
Wilkinson herself has a 3-year-old son, yet the 33-year-old Madison has revealed that she still talks to Bridget Marquardt, but not Wilkinson or Hugh Hefner. Madison explained that: ''Bridget and I are still friends, but I don't talk to anyone else. I moved on from the whole Playboy thing five years ago and really never looked back. I'm not one of those girls who goes back to all the parties and things.''
