Life inside the Playboy mansion was not the fantasy it appeared to be.
“We came from a poor Italian family, so we did what we had to do," the twins explained of moving into the mansion when they were only 18-years-old after submitting photos to the magazine. "Our grandmother adopted us when our biological mother abandoned us and took off. School wasn’t an option.”
“Hef made a lot of promises. We didn’t know any better,” Kristina and Karissa — who called the mansion home for three years — explained of the late magazine publisher.
Six months after moving in, the twins claim that Hugh began to enforce rules on them that included a 9 p.m. curfew and reporting to security everytime they came and went from the house. “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,” the sisters explained.
“We weren’t allowed to even talk to other men and we were forced to smile when he started noticing our depression,” Kristina and Karissa shared. “We also got yelled at for trying to dress differently.” They added he also forced them to wear matching clothes.

“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,” the sisters shockingly revealed. “We never did anything incestuous, 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 twins now say in the aftermath, they have dealt with severe depression and PTSD. “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,” Kristina and Karissa stated.
Another girlfriend of Hugh's, Sondra Theodore — who called the mansion home from 1976 to 1981, and will also appear in the upcoming documentary — mentioned that although the the editor-in-chief claimed there was no drug use in the mansion, that couldn't be further from the truth.
“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," Theodore said.
