Having left Los Angeles for the bright lights of The Las Vegas Strip, Holly Madison sets out to make her mark on the world. She stars as lead dancer in the Vegas show Peepshow at Planet Hollywood and hangs with a new group of friends, including Angel Porrino, her personal assistant/best friend, Josh Strickland, a former Broadway performer who plays the male lead in Peepshow, and Laura Croft, Holly's party ready roommate. In season 2, Claire Sinclair, Playmate of the Year 2011 and former Crazy Horse Paris burlesque performer, became the new addition to the group.


In July 2009, Kevin Burns revealed in an interview that he was in talks to create a show featuring Madison,[2] with E! hoping to continue the success they had with Kendra in the summer of 2009[3] as it had set many records for the network, including being the highest-rated premiere since 2002.[4] Initially a one-off special, success in the ratings led to E! ordering an eight-episode season[5] that began airing on June 13, 2010.[6] The show is the second spin-off to The Girls Next Door, with the first being Kendra.

In January 2010, E! announced that the ratings for the special led them to order an eight-episode season that would premiere in the summer of 2010.[5] While The Las Vegas Sun stated in mid-2011 that a third season of the show would begin filming in September,[7] the second season of the show became its last. The cancellation came about in July when then-new E! president Bonnie Hammer vowed to "get rid of the more Playboy trashy element" from the network[8] - a goal that was ultimately achieved as Kendra was also canceled.
