"I really don't know where this stuff comes from," Kevin Burns, executive producer of The Girls Next Door, tells E! News exclusively. "Holly has not moved out and has no plans to do so. She is very much busy supervising and editing Playmate shoots at Playboy Studios West. She's also been working with my company on several new ideas for Playboy-themed TV shows and specials."
He continued, "Holly's trips to Vegas have been 'mini-vacations' to hang out with friends and to scout for the magazine. She's just having a good time."
Crisis averted: The end of GND as one of TV's best guilty pleasures is not nigh, and more importantly, the Playboy empire of high-class hoochie will not want for a queen. Whew.
For her part, Holly posted on her MySpace earlier this week to debunk simultaneous wedding and breakup rumors. About the rumored end of the Holly Era at the Mansion, she wrote, "Hef and I are not breaking up...We are PIC (partners in crime, LOL, Kendra [Wilkinson] came up with that one). We are wrapping up season five of The Girls Next Door and are looking forward to filming a season six."
Now, in case you don't keep up with news about the most adorable reality show on TV, The Girls Next Door—the heartwarming tale of Grandpa Hef and the three precocious minxes he has elevated to a life of excess and pleasure at his surprisingly warm and homey royal court—has been under attack by gossips throughout the summer.
Is Sporty Spice/Kendra moving out of the Playboy Mansion to become a real estate mogul? Is smart-cookie vixen Bridget Marquardt also going and taking her psychotic fluffball Wednesday with her? Say it ain't so, yo!
The departure of the second and third most serious girlfriends would have been one thing, but Holly was supposed to be different. Classy, cunning Holly loved her "Puffin," and he loved her. They shared a bed, Holly announced that she was shaped by God to be Hef's perfect woman, and Hef always said fondly that he sure liked her, too.
Now, it's true, Holly wants to settle down, get married and have lots of Playbabies, and that's the kind of thing that just makes Hef avoid eye contact, but still, Holly and Hef seem to have a pretty happy arrangement.
Since this is all cleared up, we can go back to watching and believing in Holly and Hef's fairy-tale enchantment with each other.
It may be foolish to hope against hope that they're going to live happily ever after, but we're going to do it anyway.
Season five of The Girls Next Door premieres on Sunday, Oct. 5 at 10 p.m., only on E!
