Holly Madison Insures Breasts for $1 Million

Steven Lawton/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Holly Madison, reality television personality and one of Hugh Hefner’s many girlfriends, has reportedly insured her breasts for $1 million.

The model, showgirl and TV personality took out the million-dollar policy with the Lloyd’s of London insurance company, which is known for insuring notable body parts of famous people, including the legs of dancer Michael Flatley for $1 million each and the taste buds of world famous food critic Egon Ronay, for $400,000.

Madison, who speaks openly about her breast augmentation surgery, has said that her surgery brought her from an A-cup to a D-cup.  She said she insured her breasts in order to protect herself and others who appear in her Las Vegas production, Peepshow.

“I’ve heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I’d be out for a few months and I’d probably be out a million dollars,” she told People.  “I thought I’d cover my assets.”

Madison, who appeared on the reality TV series The Girls Next Door, which followed the lives of Hefner’s girlfriends, and her own series about her Vegas exploits called Holly’s World, said that she does appear topless in the Vegas revue.

“I think it’s kind of funny.  I think they’re getting the credit they deserve,” she told People.  “They’re my primary money makers right now.”
