The first time I saw doe-eyed Holly Madison, I thought she was in her late teens or early twenties. Imagine my shock when I visited her Wikipedia page and saw that she’s 39! She’s had a pretty exciting life and career. She’s been a model, an author, an actress, and a showgirl. She’s been in the news lately because she’s now in a relationship with Zak Bagans.
The Road that Led to Bagans
Holly Madison was a longtime favorite of Hugh Hefner, the founder of the controversial Playboy magazine. He was in a polyamorous relationship with her and two other women. He and Holly lasted from 2001 to 2008. She would go on to date and marry Pasquale Rotella, an Italian electronic music event promoter, in 2013. They had two children together but decided to separate amicably this year.
Her current beau is just as interesting as the other two where occupation is concerned. Zak Bagans happens to be a paranormal investigator. He hosts the series Ghost Adventures. Bagans, a curious character, has a museum dedicated to haunted objects—like Ed and Lorraine Warren from The Conjuring.
TMZ tells us that Holly and Zak met at the latter’s museum in Las Vegas and that things moved along pretty quickly for them. They had met on a previous occasion while they were both in other relationships.
As for Zak Bagans, little to nothing is known about his relationship history. He does, however, connect with ghosts. He added the bed on which Lamar Odom overdoses to his queer collection. One of his keepsakes caused a woman to faint.
