The recession doesnâ€™t seem to be fazing Hugh Hefnerâ€™s ex Holly Madison.
The blonde beauty recently resigned from her post as Playboy magazineâ€™s first ever â€œPlaymate Editor,â€ saying that the job wasnâ€™t worth her commute to Vegas, where she lives with her new man, beau Criss Angel.
She wrote on her MySpace blog: “One: I moved to Vegas and that job doesnâ€™t pay enough to make a commute worthwhile. I never cared about the salary when I got the job. I made my money doing Girls Next Door, and I did the job because I loved it.”
Madison, 29, also said that she â€œno longer found it challengingâ€ and working with her ex Hugh Hefner was â€œawkward.â€
She split with Hefner last fall amid rumors that she wanted to get married and have children. She has been dating Angel since last October.
She added: “When one is trying to move on with their life, it isnâ€™t beneficial to spend so much time on something that doesnâ€™t pay much and, sadly enough, is no longer rewarding to you. But I loved my job while I had it, appreciate the opportunity and the experience greatly, and wish whoever takes my place the best.”
