Can't really put in to words how I really feel. It's easy to say he will be missed and how much I loved him. There's a lot more than that— Kendra Wilkinson (@KendraWilkinson) September 28, 2017
Two of the former Playmates who starred on E!'s hit reality show The Girls Next Door alongside Hugh Hefner have broken their silence following the news of his passing on Wednesday at the age of 91.
"He changed my life," Kendra Wilkinson tells Us Weekly in a statement.
"He made me the person I am today. I couldn't be more thankful for our friendship and our time together. I will miss him so much, but he will be in my heart forever."
Co-star Bridget Marquardt likewise tweeted earlier today, "So sad, but forever grateful for all the wonderful memories and amazing experiences. #RIPHef."
Meanwhile, Playmate Holly Madison--who famously railed on Hef in her tell-all memoir The Vegas Diaries--has yet to comment on his passing.
You changed our lives and made us women! We had so much fun and made so many memories that we will never forget!! What keeps us sane is knowing we have memories of us, the pictures captured a glimpse, but our hearts captured everything like a film recorder!! Thank you for giving us a kind of love not everyone gets to experience in life! Pop in on us from time to time and tell our mom in heaven we have been good girls😉 “May the wind always be at your back, And the sun always upon your face, And May the wings of destiny carry you a loft to dance with the stars! Forever love , your Twins! 👯
