Playboy Bunny shares strict rules they had to follow living in the mansion
| Last updated
An ex Playboy model has opened up about what it was like living in the notorious mansion, once owned by Hugh Hefner.
You'd be forgiven for presuming that life in the Playboy mansion was pretty much a free-for-all, but this house went by some seriously strict rules.
She was just 18 during her stay, and describes the experience as a 'dream come true', but the model had to obey Hefner's orders or face eviction.
Before she even moved in, Jenna revealed that 'a lot of work went into the preparation'.
She said: "I'm pretty sure they did quite strict background checks because they have to make sure you're not a serial killer.
"I mean, even though we had a 9pm curfew it wasn't like we were prisoners. Although if you missed curfew you were sleeping on the lawn. They were very strict about it.
"And we weren't allowed to have boyfriends, like, even meeting boys was an immediate kick-out."
However, Jenna said that what she 'got in return was unbelievable': "This place we lived at had movie theatres, animals, trampolines, stylists.
"It was a real life Barbie playhouse. There were servants doing all the cooking and cleaning.
"There was a phone that we called 'Dial-a-Dream' because you could press 0 and ask for anything you wanted, any time of day or night.
"Like, if I wanted McDonald's fries at 3am, they would go out and get it."
Speaking about the parties, she said: "I mean, people think they were wild but they were wilder than you can imagine.
"At one party I saw Angelina Jolie, Tommy Lee, Pamela Anderson, Dennis Rodman - these parties were crazy.
"I would often walk around at them with trays of 'party favours', offering them out."
Jenna says that she never had sex with big boss Hugh Hefner, but she did once walk in on him in the act - but she'll 'never say who it was with'.
She teased: "All I can say is that there were four people, including him."
Although Jenna claims to have never slept with Hefner during her time in the house, she says the two did share a special bond.
"Hugh Hefner only had three main rooms in his house for his official girlfriends and wives and the rest of us lived in the Bunny House," she continued.
"Whoever were playmates of the month, like myself, I was Miss April, could stay there for free for the entire year.
"You would help with the body painting, the press releases, going out with Hef and stuff.
"I think a lot of the girls tried to get close with Hef so they could get more money but when I was around, like when he was in his 80s and 90s, he wasn't having sex with any of the girls.
"He would shuffle around in his slippers, bless his soul, I think all of us blondes just looked the same to him by that point!"
Jenna went on to say: "Hef really had a heart of gold," adding: "I wish I had got to spend more time with him."
Hefner, who died in 2017, founded Playboy Magazine in 1953, before the enterprise evolved into an empire consisting of models, nightclubs and the infamous Playboy Mansion.
