Playboy Bunny Holly Madison: Hounding by HOA Over Doghouse Forcing Me to Sell Home


Former Playboy Bunny Holly Madison's bright pink doghouse has put her, well, in the doghouse with her current homeowners' association. Their relationship with the HOA has been so strained over the structure that Madison and her partner, Pasquale Rotella, say that they have decided to sell their Las Vegas home.

The model and former "Girls Next Door" star, who is pregnant, told Las Vegas Weekly that her neighborhood's HOA has been giving her endless grief over the "human-sized" doghouse that she had constructed in her backyard for her canine companions, Louis, Napoleon and Josephine. Though Madison's contractor had complied with all the HOA's regulations when building the structure -- even matching its architecture to that of the main house -- the HOA has continued to feud with her over it, she said.

"They keep fining me for having it painted pink," Madison told Las Vegas Weekly of the doghouse, which sits on a bed of pallets. According to Madison, the fines are around $100 a month. "It's a temporary structure, so it's not even under their jurisdiction. That would be like harping on someone over their kids' jungle gym." (We tried as hard as we could to find photos of this pink doghouse, but alas, we were unsuccessful.)

Madison said that she is especially irked because, according to her, the structure isn't even visible from the street. "It's possible you could see the roof from the street, but you can't see any of it from the street actually," Madison said. The model says she'll be bringing the doghouse with her to her new residence in another Las Vegas neighborhood. Hope she's cleared it with her new HOA!
