Former Playmate and ex-girlfriend Sondra Theodore of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner claimed she once walked in on him having a sexual encounter with her dog.
“I walked in on him with my dog and I said, ‘What are you doing?'” Theodore shared in the upcoming A&E Documentary “Secrets of Playboy.” The comments were noted by the New York Post in a piece published Monday.
“I was shocked,” she added. “He made it seem like it was just a one-time thing, and that he was just goofing off. But I never left him alone with my dog again.” (RELATED: Celebrate Hugh Hefner’s Birthday With 36 Photos That Prove He Was The Biggest Baller Of All-Time)

The former Playboy model also labeled Hefner a “predator” and said she was “groomed” by him starting at the age of 19. He was 50. She was in the house in the 70s.
“He was a predator,” the former member of the gentlemen’s magazine shared. “I watched him, I watched his game. And I watched a lot of girls go through [the Playboy Mansion] gates looking farm-fresh, and leaving looking tired and haggard.” (RELATED: ‘Girl Next Door’ Star Opens Up About Life At The Playboy Mansion)
“He groomed me and twisted my mind into thinking his way was normal,” she added. “He introduced me to drugs. I’d never had a drink or a drug before going up to the Playboy Mansion. And my first night there I was handed champagne and the drugs came later, and I was underage.”
Dozens of former Playmates were interviewed for the documentary, including former “Girls Next Door” star Holly Madison. She was in the Playboy Mansion with Hefner as one of his lovers, from 2001-2008.
Former Playboy bunny mother PJ Masten also claimed that Hefner forced porn actress and “Deep Throat” star Linda Lovelace to perform “oral sex” on a German shepherd, the outlet noted.
“All the guys were laughing when Linda got out of the limousine,” Masten shared. “She was drunk and drugged … They got her so messed up that they made her give the German shepherd oral sex. You wanna talk about depravity? This is despicable.”
“Well, you’re talking to someone who was there in the ‘70s,” Roderick shared. “For me, it was not like that whatsoever. In fact, there was one night at one party where security came to Hef and said, ‘There’s somebody doing cocaine in the bathroom.’ A certain celebrity, which I won’t mention the name, of course.”
“He had them kicked out and never allowed at the mansion again,” she added. “He was very much against drugs. Maybe in the ’70s they were having fun. What she’s explaining, it sounds like she’s talking about men that go to the parties. I didn’t hear her say Hef was doing those things.”
Hefner’s son, Cooper Hefner, also defended his father in a tweet about these “salacious stories.”
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.
