“It is literally the same thing we went through at the mansion,” they tell us. The twins explain they are tired of holding their tongue about what really went on behind the scenes.

Kristina and Karissa submitted photos to Playboy at the age of 17. The twins said they thought they were just visiting the mansion to be playmates but instead Hef asked them to move in.

The twins said they moved into the mansion in 2008 when they were 18. “We came from a poor Italian family, so we did what we had to do. Our grandmother adopted us when our biological mother abandoned us and took off. School wasn’t an option.”

Sources close to the twins claim their father struggled with his own personal demons.

“Hef made a lot of promises. We didn’t know any better,” they explain. The Twins stayed at the mansion for 3 years and were even featured on two seasons of E!’s Girls Next Door.

They describe having a 9 PM curfew and security writing down every time they left and came back. They claim security provided Hef with a report every morning of their whereabouts. “We are completely ruined by him mentally, he had signs hanging all over the house in the mansion saying what we were allowed to do, eat or drink,” they said.

“We weren’t allowed to even talk to other men and we were forced to smile when he started noticing our depression,” the twins tells us.

“Nobody knows what we have been through and how it feels to be an 18-year-old girl with an 83-year-old man giving oral sex with your twin sister on your 19th birthday is something you can’t forget” they say.

“We never did anything incestious, but he made us both have sex with him at the same time all together. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be allowed to stay.” The girls say they eventually moved out of the home but still are still dealing with PTSD and depression.

“We lost ourselves in the mansion. We were just 18 and didn’t know at all what we were getting into. What we were forced to do in the bedroom ruined us and we will never be the same romantically,” they explain.

In the docu-series, Holly describes an incident where Hef flipped out on her after she cut her hair short. Another ex Sondra Theodore — who lived in the mansion from 1976 to 1981 — said drugs were rampant during her time.

“Hef pretended that he wasn’t involved in any hard drug use at the mansion, but that was just a lie. Quaaludes down the line were used for sex.”
