Holly Madison revealed even more upsetting details about her experience as Hugh Hefner's girlfriend on the latestOprah: Where Are They Now, including when the Playboy founder attempted to bribe her into staying with him.

"Hef and I started hitting kind of a rocky patch when it became clear that Bridget [Marquardt] and Kendra [Wilkinson] were leaving, they were moving on to new things," Madison said. "I just had enough and just realized all the delusions I'd been under and that this was no longer the life for me."

But when Madison went to pack up her belongings from Hefner's room, she saw that he had left out his will, which stated he was leaving her $3 million.

Kendra Wilkinson jumps to Hugh Hefner's defense

"It was very clear to me that he'd left that out for me to see, because he was hoping it would change my mind and get me to stay," Madison said. "But it just kind of disgusted me more than anything because all he can do is say, 'Oh, here, I'm gonna throw you some money to get you to stay.' It just grossed me out."

Madison hasn't held anything back when it comes to discussing her relationship with Hefner recently. In June, she published a tell-all memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, in which she revealed she considered suicide while living in the Playboy Mansion.

However, Hefner denies Madison's versions of events, as does his son Cooper and her The Girls Next Door co-star Wilkinson.

"My perception was that she acted like a first lady," Wilkinson said. "Holly, you can tell, had this ulterior motive every minute being at the Mansion, and that motive was -- it was clear as day -- she wanted Hef's kids, she wanted a piece of Playboy and she wanted to marry Hef for, obviously, his will."
