My favorite guilty pleasure show, The Girls Next Door, is back for Season Two on DVD. The show stars Holly, Bridget and Kendra; now famous for the show besides being Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends. The second season picks up where Season One left off and takes a look at the lives of the girls since the show has been a big hit for E! Entertainment. The show is a lot of fun and I always get caught watching the show while it’s on during the week, or those nice marathons over the weekend. Plus its uncensored!
In season two, the girls and Mr. Hefner celebrate his 80th birthday, travel the world to England, Paris and Rome, open a new Playboy wing at the Palms, and throw a party every other night. If I owned the Playboy Mansion I would as well. What’s nice about the show is that every fan has a favorite girl on the show. Some like all three. I hear females are a big part of the shows’ viewers, which is a little surprising. In the season, the girls are branching out with their own endeavors as well. Doing many photo shoots, design a Playboy jewelry line, and create a workout video. Not to mention the best (for guys anyway) is the pictorial episodes because the DVD is uncensored. The girls have a great sense of humor as well. They know not to take themselves too seriously, especially having fun getting costumes together for the many parties the Mansion sees each year.
While I find it surprising that all the girls are still getting along and able to put up with each other despite dating the same guy. I know I wouldn’t be able to stand something like that. Too much competition, but I believe it’s an understanding that Holly is the number one girl. I really think Kendra is probably the first one to bail on the relationship because she is using it as stepping stone, especially being the youngest one. I give them all a lot of credit though.
Quite a few extras round out the set with commentary on each episode from Holly, Bridget and Kendra, as well as a “Happy Birthday Hef!” special premier version of the first two episodes, and a few deleted scenes. The show is a lot of fun and great for one of those slow weekends with nothing else on TV. Time flies when you watch it too. Overall, I love the show.
