Crystal Hefner is ready to tell her story. As the 37-year-old model prepares for the release of her memoir, Only Say Good Things: Surviving Playboy and Finding Myself, the former Girls Next Door star is grappling with the “mixed” feelings she still has toward her late husband, Hugh Hefner.

“He wasn’t all good or all evil,” Crystal tells Yahoo Entertainment, describing the Playboy founder as a “complex” person.

Crystal met the publishing mogul at a 2008 Halloween party at the Playboy Mansion. She married Hugh in 2012 — months after she initially called off the wedding and the “runaway bride” storyline played out in the press. In her tell-all, she shares deeply personal information about the nearly 10 years they spent together. Crystal recalls having group sex with Hefner the first night they met, “and while there was nothing sexy about it,” she calls the experience “surreal.”

“This wasn’t about making love,” she writes. “It was a performance. I was auditioning for a part.”

Crystal got the part. She moved in weeks later and quickly rose through the ranks to become one of Hefner’s girlfriends alongside “the twins,” Karissa and Kristina Shannon. While the seemingly glamorous life behind the Holmby Hills, Calif., mansion’s gate had its perks, Crystal details her lonely and isolating life dating Hugh, who she alleges was emotionally abusive. In Yahoo’s interview, she compares living at the Playboy Mansion to being in a “cult.” (Hugh’s previous No. 1 girlfriend, Holly Madison, made similar accusations to Yahoo.)
