Holly Madison Talks Hefner Break Up, Calls Hef "High Maintenance"

Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner's girlfriend of seven years, came only to "Extra's" special correspondent Alison Waite to talk about her heartbreaking split from the Playboy mogul. "I'm just kind of sad about my breakup with Hef. I wish he would've seen it coming," Madison admitted.

Madison continued, "Everybody was surprised when it happened because even though I was unhappy for a long time, the split happened suddenly...The signs were there. I was depressed for awhile."

Madison revealed one of the reasons for the break-up saying, "I want to be with somebody I can have more of a future with eventually. Hef and I can't get married and have kids...so it was fun while it lasted but it wasn't right for my old age. I got too old for Hef."

Madison has "been staying in the guest room. Hef was kind enough not to kick me out of the house....but my condo should be finished [soon]..."

As for her current relationship with Hefner, Madison explained, "I still work for him. We're still best friends. I still call and check in on him almost everyday."

When Waite asked about Hefners's new girlfriends, Karissa and Kristina Shannon, Madison declared, "He does not waste any time but I'm happy for him. I want him to be busy and happy and having fun."

Madison admitted, "It might be refreshing to date someone who is not high maintenance. Sorry, Hef, you know you're high maintenance. I love you but you know you're high maintenance."

PLUS - Over the weekend, Waite caught up with Madison who was hand in hand with rumored new love, Criss Angel, at his new Cirque Du Soleil show, Believe, in Las Vegas. So, are Madison and Angel officially a couple? Angel exclaimed, "You want the exclusive? We're good friends and we love spending time with each other." Waite responded, "I hope you can get some benefits as far as being friends" Angel said, "Friends with benefits. Yeah!"
