Holly Madison's fiance is reportedly facing more than 13 years in prison. The former The Girls Next Door star's partner Pasquale Rotella, who is the father of her two-month-old baby girl Rainbow Aurora, attended a pre-trial hearing in Los Angeles on Monday for a number of serious charges including bribery, embezzlement, conspiracy and conflict of interest.
According to gossip website RadarOnline.com the LA County District Attorney alleges that the owner of Insomniac events used more than $2.5 million in funds from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to pay off city officials so he could host raves in the venue.
Pasquale - who was indicted with five other males - posted a $1.8 million bail and is due back in court on July 29. If convicted the father-of-one, who is due to marry Holly, 33, on August 14, could serve almost 14 years behind bars. But his lawyer Gary Jay Kaufman previously said he is confident that his client will be found innocent, calling the charges "politically motivated and publicity driven."
Holly Madison has defended her decision to name her newborn daughter Rainbow Aurora.
The former Girls Next Door star - who welcomed her first child into the world at 11.59am on Tuesday morning at a Las Vegas hospital with her fiance Pasquale Rotella by her side - insists she doesn't care if people don't like the unusual moniker and wants her daughter to be grow up to be proud of who she is.
On her official blog on Friday, the 33-year-old Playboy model wrote, "There are a lot of smug haters out there who bag on my choice of a name, but I don't care about what they think. I want my daughter to be proud of who she is and learn to speak up and stand up for herself at a young age. I spent most of my life being a people-pleaser who worried about what other people thought or thought was cool and I don't want that for her. I have always loved the name Rainbow. There was a girl in my school a few years younger than me named Rainbow and I was so envious of her name because it was so pretty and unusual. She was perfectly normal, well-adjusted, sporty girl, by the way, so I'm not worried about my daughter being 'traumatized' by having an unusual name."
Holly Madison is "overjoyed" after giving birth to a baby girl.
The Playboy model turned actress welcomed her first child into the world at 11.59am this morning at a Las Vegas hospital with her fiance Pasquale Rotella by her side.
The former Girls Next Door star is yet to name her daughter, who weighs 7 pounds 2 ounces, but told In Touch, "Pasquale and I welcomed our first child, a baby girl! We haven't yet decided on a name for her but we couldn't be any more overjoyed than at this moment."
"I've never been more in love than I am today as, after months of waiting, I finally was able to hold my daughter for the first time. Holly and I are looking forward to spending some quiet time with our baby and enjoying our new family. I'm truly the luckiest man in the world," Pasquale, 38, added.
Holly Madison wants to adjust to being a mom before she gets married.
The former girlfriend of Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner is expecting her first child with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella in March and says they want to get used to parenthood before tying the knot later this year.
Holly, 33, told People, "One thing at a time. We totally want to [get married], probably in late summer. We're going to wait until the baby comes and we get moved in to the house before I start planning any of that." Holly can't wait to become a mother and revealed she doesn't want to be a strict parent.
"It's hard to say because it's my first time. I don't want to be too strict because I think kids can get rebellious, but I hope to raise my daughter to be passionate about doing good things - about pursuing real things and real hobbies and not just frivolous material stuff," she said.
Holly Madison doesn't want her daughter to pose nude for Playboy. The pregnant blonde has stripped off for the men's magazine, which is owned by her ex-boyfriend Hugh Hefner, but she isn't keen on her child following in her footsteps.
"I don't think people are treated with respect in that environment. I'm from a small town and you grow up seeing people like Jenny McCarthy or Pamela Anderson, who made it big after doing Playboy. You think it's this glamorous thing until you realize how much you're judged for it. Luckily kids don't want to be like their parents, so I don't think she'll see anything cool or rebellious about posing for Playboy. I'm down for whatever direction in life she wants to go but I think she can do better."
Holly, 33, is expecting her first child with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella and she is due to give birth in March. The Holly's World star knows she will have to work hard to regain her stunning figure, but she will resist any offers from Playboy to show off her post-baby figure when she is back to her sexy best:
Holly Madison has revealed she has been suffering from severe morning sickness.
The reality TV star - who is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Pasquale Rotella in March - was hospitalized on Monday because she is suffering from a similar illness to Duchess Catherine despite being in the late stages of her pregnancy.
"When it started happening really late [in my pregnancy] and I was really vomiting a lot during the day, it freaked me out. I was told to go to the doctor and get an IV and everything. So, that was kind of scary to me just because it seemed like something so unusual, something that I hadn't read about. But everything's OK so far, so that's good," the former Girls Next Door star told Entertainment Tonight.
Holly Madison is adopting a child.
The Holly's World star - who has been dating Pasquale Rotella for just under a year - has revealed she has started the process to adopt and can't wait to become a mother.
"I've started the adoption process. I really want to be a mommy," she told In Touch.
Although she recently spoke out about trying to get pregnant, Holly decided to adopt because she is too busy with her career to have a baby herself: "I love performing, and you can't really do that when you're pregnant." Holly has contacted Hold My Hand, an adoption mentoring service which help prospective parents.
Last month, Holly insisted becoming a mother is her top priority because she is in such a good place in her life: "I've wanted kids and that's something I'm definitely doing as soon as possible. It is something that the time in my life is right for. Definitely being with the right guy has a lot to do with it. My relationship is awesome. I'm happier than I've ever been in my personal life."
Holly Madison wants a baby.
The Holly's World star has declined to renew her contract with Las Vegas production Peepshow in the hope she will soon be expecting a child with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella, whom she has been dating for just under a year.
"I'm not pregnant right now but if that happened tomorrow I'd be fine with it," she said. When asked if she is trying to have a baby now, she said, "I'm not trying to prevent it, if that's what you're asking."
Although Holly - a former Playboy model and ex-girlfriend of Hugh Hefner - says she has several unannounced projects in the pipeline and wants to return to the stage, she insists becoming a mother is her top priority because she is in such a good place in her life: "I've wanted kids and that's something I'm definitely doing as soon as possible. It is something that the time in my life is right for. Definitely being with the right guy has a lot to do with it. My relationship is awesome. I'm happier than I've ever been in my personal life."
Playboy boss Hugh Hefner has been invited to Gene Simmons' wedding. Hefner has received an invitation to attend the nuptials of the KISS rocker and his fiancee Shannon Tweed on October 1.
Hugh is very excited for the couple, who have been in a relationship for 28 years, because Gene and the former Playboy Playmate met at his home. "I received a wedding invitation from PMOY Shannon Tweed & rock star Gene Simmons today. They met at the Mansion. (sic)," he wrote on his Twitter.
The 85-year-old business mogul - who is famous for throwing wild parties at his Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles - also revealed he was visited by his ex-girlfriend Holly Madison on Thursday. The 31-year-old blonde beauty decided to drop in to see Hugh on her day off from Las Vegas burlesque production Peepshow. "Holly came by & had dinner at the Mansion with GND producer Kevin Burns on the day off from her Vegas show "Peepshow." Good to see her. (sic)" he tweeted.
Hugh Hefner's ex-girlfriend Holly Madison thinks he is making a mistake by marrying Crystal Harris.
The 84-year-old Playboy founder proposed to the 24-year-old Playmate on Christmas Eve but glamour model and reality TV star Madison - who split from Hugh in 2008 because he did not want to get married - thinks he will regret his "hasty decision."
"I'd like to see Hef settle down. I just want it to be with the right person, and I feel like he's making a hasty decision. I'm not sure Crystal is the best thing for him. Crystal hasn't been around very long -- she's a mysterious character. No one knows much about her. Plus, she's very young, probably too young to settle down."
Holly, 31, also revealed she is worried aspiring singer Crystal is using Hugh to start her career and fears he could end up losing everything in an expensive divorce: "I've seen a lot of girls try to date Hef, and some have ulterior motives. I don't think it would be a bad idea for him to get to know her a little better. I think it's possible Crystal could break Hef's heart. They could end up divorcing, and she could take half his money. I'm not jealous that he'd marry someone else. I just don't want it to be a girl who's using him to start her career. Basically, I think he could do better than Crystal."
