Holly Madison continues to recall moments from and Hugh Hefner's past relationship, including one that she says "grossed me out."

In an interview for Oprah Winfrey's OWN show Oprah: Where Are They Now that airs on Saturday, the 35-year-old former Playboy Playmate and Girls Next Door alum, who was once the Playboy founder's head girlfriend, talks about the days after the two called it quits in 2008 after some seven years.

"Hef and I started hitting kind of a rocky patch when it became clear that Bridget and Kendra were leaving, they were moving on to new things," Madison says on the show. "I just had enough and just realized all the delusions I'd been under and that this was no longer the life for me." 

She said it all came to a "bizarre peak" when she entered Hefner's room to pack up the remainder of her belongings.

"I found on my side of the bed a folder that he left out," she says. "And in his will, he'd left me $3 million."

"It was very clear to me that he'd left that out for me to see, because he was hoping it would change my mind and get me to stay," she adds. "But it just kinda disgusted me more than anything because all he can do is say, 'Oh, here, I'm gonna throw you some money to get you to stay.' It just...grossed me out.'"

Hefner has not commented. Madison had made similar remarks in her 2015 memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, saying, "I couldn't help but be offended. Did he really think he could buy me?"

Hefner has said, regarding her book, that "sadly," he has a few ex-girlfriends "who have chosen to rewrite history in an attempt to stay in the spotlight."

Hefner and Madison have moved on since their breakup—he wed Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris in 2012, while she wed Pasquale Rotella in 2013. They are parents to a 2-year-old girlRainbow Aurora.

In her memoir, Madison calls Hefner a "manipulator" and talks about their sex life. She also reveals she contemplated committing suicide while living in the Playboy Mansion, which she described as a "bedazzled, twisted prison where the inmates developed their own hazing and hierarchy," adding that "the release back into society" was like "being excommunicated."

Madison had shared Hefner, who changed girlfriend rosters every few years, with fellow Girls Next Door co-stars Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett, now 30, and Bridget Marquardt, now 42.

On Friday's episode of her reality show Kendra on Top, Wilkinson-Baskett slams Madison as a "bitch" over her tell-all memoir, which dubs the former "the fakest person I've ever met."

I've never faked s--t a minute of my life," Wilkinson-Baskett says, adding about Madison, "We were never friends. At the end of the day, what we did was we just f--ked the same man."
