Girls of the Playboy Mansion

June 14th, 2007 DVD Reviews, Film, Xpress

Most people still associate Playboy with the iconic magazine, but few know their merchandise line, currently a massive hit with 13 year old girls, is making more money for the company than magazines ever did. Even though a pyjama-wearing octogenarian is still the figurehead, the company is a canny exercise in marketing a brand with most of the senior executives (including the CEO) very well educated women.

This is the other side of the Playboy story, where a trio of women in their twenties can profess to love an eighty year old man in an old fashioned relationship where they all feel like his soulmate (even though there are eight of them).

Girls of the Playboy Mansion is a TV series where you get a glimpse behind the velvet rope that is Hugh Hefner’s life, and those women he selects to be his ‘girlfriends’.

If it wasn’t all true it would be a bad misogynist parody. One peroxided idiot giggles that her role at high profile media events is to ‘stand there and smile and not do anything stupid’. Another says with a straight face that ‘I feel like I’m getting better with age’. She should perhaps ask the procession of bimbos Hefner’s jettisoned when their silicone sags and ask if they feel the same way.

You might watch Girls of the Playboy Mansion for tits and arse. There aren’t any, other than a few glimpses of bikinis. This PG travesty seems an earnest attempt at being a reality show about an everyday, loving relationship (between three airheads barely out of training bras and a petulant, coddled old fool old enough to be their great grandfather).

And if that (all with the constant backdrop of the yapping mutts that seem to infest the Playboy Mansion) isn’t enough to satisfy you, we then get commentary tracks with the three stars, letting them further showcase their intellectual powers and grasp of the English language).

As one says without irony, the names they get called most often after ‘bimbo’ and ‘slut’. What kind of girl grows up wanting to be in Playboy from the time she’s 4 years old? Watch this bottom-feeding trash and find out.
