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.
