Peepshow blond bombshell Holly Madison is at The Playboy Mansion in L.A. tonight on the heels of the breakup of Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner, 85, and his 25-year-old fiancee Crystal Harris. Their semi-formal wedding was scheduled for this Saturday at The Mansion, and Madison traveled to Southern California on her weekly one day off from Peepshow at Planet Hollywood to presumably console her onetime boyfriend.

A friend of Madison’s confirmed to Robin Leach this evening that Madison, who has remained friendly with Hefner post-split, indeed traveled to The Mansion today, but that "there is no inference of them reconciling." Since breaking up with Hefner in 2008 and departing The Mansion with The Girls Next Door BFFs Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett at the conclusion of Season 6 of TGND in 2009, Madison has landed a role in Peepshow, one of the most popular topless burlesques on The Strip -- she’s the only celebrity guest star to land a contract renewal with the production -- and has been renewed for a Season 3 of Holly’s World on E! Entertainment.

Madison is currently celebrating the release of her first book The Showgirl Next Door. Hef, meantime, has said of the split with Harris, “The breakup is a heartbreaker, but better now than after the marriage.”
