Holly Madison, the former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, says that she has no regrets what so ever on how her life turned out and believes that everything happens for a reason.
When Madison left the founder of Playboy enterprise and his mansion in 2008, she quickly realized that her past wouldn't leave her so easily. 'I didn't have my own identity. For so long I wasn't myself. I was only known as somebody's girlfriend.' said the 36-year-old.
"I was starting from scratch,and I had all of this heavy baggage and a scarlet letter on my forehead. Dating proved to be an even bigger challenge. I was definitely embarrassed by my past.' said the author of 'The Vegas Diaries: Romance, Rolling the Dice, and the Road to Reinvention'.
However, even after countless failed relationships and persistent struggle, Madison, who is now happily married to Electric Daisy founder Pasquale Rotella with a 3-year-old daughter, Rainbow Aurora, has no regrets about how her life panned out.
'I love looking back and seeing the silver lining in the clouds.' says the New York Times Best-Selling author.
