Holly Madison has hardly had time to catch her breath since being eliminated from “Dancing With the Stars” last week but the blonde bombshell is already setting her sights on her next TV project.
“I’m working on developing my own reality show that I’ll also produce,” Madison said on Saturday at a party for her ex-boyfriend and Playboy mogul, Hugh Hefner.
Though she was careful to say, “It’s not set in stone yet,” Madison’s fingers are crossed and she’s anxious to get the ball rolling on her next project.
After five years on E!’s hit reality series set in and around the iconic Playboy Mansion, “The Girls Next Door,” Madison is somewhat of a reality show veteran.
However, her role on the show was suddenly in limbo after her relationship with Hefner fizzled out last fall.
While it has since been decided that the 29-year-old will appear in the show’s upcoming season despite the break-up, her presence will be considerably smaller than it has been in the past.
With this in mind, Madison has been busy developing ideas for a show of her own.
She shared her plans for her reality show while in Las Vegas over the weekend.
“It’s going to be about me and my friends,” she said, noting the show, if it materializes, would be set here in Las Vegas.
Madison, 29, said she has a lot of friends in Las Vegas who would be great for the show.
While she didn’t name any names, fellow former Playboy model Alison Waite is one of Madison’s friends who could be offered a spot on the show.
Waite, 27, has previously appeared on “The Girls Next Door” and, as a Las Vegas local, is a prime candidate for a role on Madison’s reality show.
The aspiring TV producer hopes to bring a few out-of-towners into the mix, too, if all goes to plan.
“There’s a couple I might bring out,” she said, adding, “I’m good at casting.”
Madison and Hefner’s two other recently-departed girlfriends, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson, were at Palms Place on Saturday to celebrate Hefner’s 83rd birthday.
“The Girls Next Door” cameras were rolling as the three former flames stopped by to wish the magnate a happy birthday as he lounged near the pool with his new, younger girlfriends Crystal Harris, 22, and 19-year-old twin sisters Karissa and Kristina Shannon.
Footage of the encounter is apparently destined for the upcoming season premiere of the “The Girls Next Door.”
