Don Cornelius was accused of sexual assault during the latest episode of “Secrets of Playboy.”
It’s been said that the Playboy house was the place to be on Thursday nights when it was in its heyday. “It was probably the most horrific story I’ve ever heard at Playboy,” Masten said. “This story is the story of a massive cleanup that never hit the press.”
The late magazine publisher would host a huge bash, complete with “two pimps bringing in carloads of prostitutes from Sunset Boulevard,” according to his former girlfriend, Sondra Theodore, as well as other mansion employees.
Hefner reportedly dubbed this weekly occurrence “pig night,” although the prostitutes weren’t allowed to know that. Theodore shared that she would “look the other way while [her man] did all sorts of crazy stuff,” but this particular ritual really caught her attention.
The series explains the evening as a dinner party that also “served as a jumping-off point for sex parties.” Hef would sit at the head of the table, pipe in hand, as the women from Sunset Blvd drank and ate with some of the biggest movie and TV stars.
“They say the girls would get ratings and quick medical checks before slipping out of the room for sex rendezvous with the celebs,” TMZ claims.
Don Cornelius has been accused of grotesque behavior. After partying at a Hollywood bar where bunnies were known to frequent, Cornelius allegedly invited them back to his house where he claimed to be hosting a party.
“These two young girls got in his Rolls-Royce, went up to his house and we didn’t hear from them for three days,” Masten recalled in the episode. “We couldn’t figure out where they were.”
“They were tied up and bound,” Masten continued. “There were wooden objects that they were sodomized with and [one sister] could hear [the] other sister being brutalized. It was horrible, horrible.”
Masten added that one of the most heartbreaking details of the story was that Cornelius was never held accountable and he maintained his VIP privileges.
Cornelius’ son, Tony Cornelius slammed the accusation as “salaciousness.”
Playboy the publication has also spoken out regarding the allegations. “Today’s Playboy is not Hugh Hefner’s Playboy,” they assured readers. “We trust and validate these women and their stories and we strongly support those individuals who have come forward to share their experiences.”
Their statement continued, “as a brand with sex-positivity at its core, we believe safety, security, and accountability are paramount. The most important thing we can do right now is actively listen and learn from their experiences. We will never be afraid to confront the parts of our legacy as a company that do not reflect our values today.”
“As an organization with a more than 80 percent female workforce, we are committed to our ongoing evolution as a company and to driving positive change for our communities.”
Some may not approve of the life my Dad chose, but my father was not a liar. However unconventional, he was sincere in his approach and lived honestly. He was generous in nature and cared deeply for people. These salacious stories are a case study of regret becoming revenge.
