Holly Madison has decided to take the high road.

In People's May 23 issue (on newsstands Friday), Madison detailed her years in the Playboy Mansion and explained why she's dislikes Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett, who was also one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends. "I wish her the best, but I'm done with that portion of my life. I've moved on. I'm happier now," Madison said. "I don't think there would be anything positive about us meeting up. It's not a real friendship and it's not part of my life anymore."

On Thursday, Wilkinson-Baskett caught wind of the interview and proceeded to trash Madison on Twitter. "Now Holly is on cover of People mag sayin she lived in fear at the mansion. She wasn't in fear with that d--k in her ass for a paycheck. That b--ch is in fear now knowing so many of us saw her doing some nasty shit. She's embarrassed and in shame," she tweeted. "She was the clean up girl. Hollys job was to get Hef hard again and clean him up with her mouth."

Hefner has not commented on Wilkinson-Baskett's rant.

In response to the former Playboy model's tweets, Madison issued a statement to E! News. "I've written a book, The Vegas Diaries, that's about letting go and moving on. About resolving the past so you can live a future. I've dealt with my demons and I've come out ahead. I can hold my head high and work hard to be the classy and kind person I aspire to be. I want no part of a one-sided argument or feud where one woman lives to demoralize and degrade another woman," Madison said. "For those with unresolved issues, therapy works. You should try it."

About an hour later, Wilkinson-Baskett deleted her NSFW tweets. "I know my recent posts were a little over the top and I apologize for that," she told her followers. "Sticking up for me n my beliefs is hard for me at times. Sorry."

The former stars of E!'s The Girls Next Door have been in a war of words since last summer, after Madison published her first memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny. As recently as March, Wilkinson-Baskett said she found some of Madison's claims "unbelievable," telling The Kyle and Jackie O Show, "You got the feeling that she wanted to have babies, get married, and love him. Trust me it was like that in real life. All of a sudden years later, 'Oh I really didn't want to be there.' It's like, what? Who are you trying to fool? At the end of the day she made a lot of things about me up in her book."

The women agreed on one thing, though: they weren't ever close. "She said 'Oh, I didn't want to be friends with her,' which was true because we were never friends from the start. The worst thing is having to be fake friends for fame, for this industry and I hate that feeling," Wilkinson-Baskett said. "I'm not a fake person. I love real friends. I love real family. I love real. So the worst part, the worst thing, is just being forced to be friends with somebody because of TV."
