Which Former ‘Girls Next Door’ Star Has a Higher Net Worth: Kendra Wilkinson or Holly Madison?

Back in 2005, cameras went inside the Playboy Mansion for the reality show The Girls Next Door. The series gave viewers a look into the lives of Hugh Hefner and his three girlfriends at the time making Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt, and Kendra Wilkinson household names.

The ladies left the show in 2009 but all these years later Madison and Wilkinson are still making headlines for drama that they haven’t been able to bury. Here’s more on that, plus who’s side Hefner’s widow is taking, and which of the former co-stars is worth more today.

Holly Madison reignites feud with Kendra Wilkinson

After a few years of not hearing any more remarks about their dislike for one another many thought the feud between Madison and Wilkinson was over with, that is until Madison brought up her former co-star in a recent podcast.

During a guest spot on the Call Her Daddy podcast Madison said she and Wilkinson still don’t have any type of relationship these days. She then took a shot at Wilkinson adding, “I had to sleep with him first. I’m not trying to slut-shame anybody or anything but nobody ever got asked to move in unless they had slept with him.”

When E! shared the story on Instagram, Wilkinson commented: “Dude… it’s 2021… Times have changed. I forgive and have kids to love and focus on… She’s [the] one out there. I’m all love now baby.”

Hugh Hefner’s widow takes sides

The comments also caught the attention of Hefner’s widow, Crystal, who revealed that she is Team Kendra.

“I was at the mansion for a DECADE almost four years ago now and these ladies and their drama were there years before that,” Crystal who married Hefner in 2012, wrote on her MeWe account via E! News. “So much time has passed. I side with Kendra here.”

Who has the higher net worth Madison or Wilkinson?

Following The Girls Next Door Wilkinson had her own reality TV 2009 to 2011. The series Kendra documented her life after she moved out of the Playboy Mansion. She also starred in the spinoff series titled Kendra on Top with her then-husband former NFL player Hank Baskett. The show ended in 2017.

Kendra appeared as a contestant on a number of other reality shows including Celebrity Wife SwapDancing With the Stars, and Marriage Bootcamp: Family Edition as well and authored two books: Sliding Into Home and Being Kendra. Celebrity Net Worth noted that today Wilkinson has a net worth of $6 million.

If you think Wilkinson has a higher net worth than Madison you’re wrong. While the Kendra star’s net worth is nothing to sneeze at Hef’s former No. 1 girlfriend is worth much more.

After The Girls Next Door, Madison also had a reality TV show called Holly’s World which aired for two seasons. She did a burlesque show at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood until 2012 as well. She then wrote two best sellers Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny in 2015 and another memoir The Vegas Diaries: Romance, Rolling the Dice, and the Road to Reinvention in 2016. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Madison has an estimated net worth of $16 million.
