Rumors have been circulating that The Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson is getting a spinoff here at E! because she's moving out of the Playboy Mansion, but Hugh Hefner has a surprise for you.

While he won't confirm anything about Wilkinson, Hefner says, "I think all three girls are likely to get spinoffs. I think they will be interconnected to the main show, and we will all appear on both."

For now, however, Hef, Wilkinson and his two other girlfriends, Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt, have other things to think about, like the Oct. 5 premiere of season five of GND.

Even Hefner is amazed at how successful the show has become. "It's amazing. We're about to launch season five," he said, adding, "We thought it would be a one-season wonder."

How wrong they were.

Season-five highlights include Hefner's birthday celebration in Las Vegas, a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, a visit with legendary Playmate Barbi Benton in Aspen and a wedding in Las Vegas.

No, it's not Hefner saying "I do" to one of the girls, as some bloggers have speculated. And while we're on the subject of rumors, Hefner also shoots down the recent one about Madison supposedly leaving him for Mindfreak illusionist Criss Angel.

But being the businessman that he is, Hefner really doesn't mind what seems like around-the-clock gossip. "All the rumors are only going to give us more ratings," he said.

He does promise that if anything changes between him and any of the girls "all of that will be on the show, because this show, unlike most, really is a reality show. It deals with our lives and wherever that takes us."

But it doesn't sound like it's taking him to the chapel anytime soon.

Hefner said with a laugh, "I'm still working through the last one."
