Owned by billionaire, Hugh Hefner, it was once known as a place where scantily clad women frolicked with rich men and celebrities, as well as the base for the production of its reality show and legendary shoots.

Sadly, nothing was as it seems, says British glamour model and present playboy bunny, Carla Howe.

As the Playboy magazine announced that it was barring naked women from its pages, Carla, told The Sun that Hugh Hefner's home is taking a similar turn for the modest and is more like a retirement home than a pleasure palace.

Carla says that Hefner, 89, now opts for quiet nights in rather than being at the centre of the action.

She also revealed that the iconic Beverly Hills home is no longer a 'place of excess with orgies and topless girls', adding that,'Hef is so frail he goes everywhere with a group of nurses.'

Carla revealed that Hugh prefers playing board games to playing with his playmates and prefers to make an appearance at parties before disappearing into the house again.

"Most of the time all he wants is to play chess with his friends and watch old films.

''He almost never leaves home and refuses to change anything in the mansion the whole place feels like it's stuck in the 1980s."

She describes the residence as looking and feeling worn-out, with old phones that hang on the walls, bedrooms that smell damp and feel 'cold and unused'.

Carla, finding fame on the arm of Liverpool striker, Mario Balotelli, said that the Playboy Bunnies' £630-a-week allowance has been axed and now the women who live there, get free room and board.

Dinner is said to be prepared and served according to Hef's tastes every day at 6.30pm.

The occupants of the house sit down with him to eat beef and parsley sauce which tastes she referred to as, tasting 'like hospital food'.

At 7pm Hef leaves the table for a screening of one of his beloved old films, after which he goes straight to bed.

Carla shares this after she has been visiting the mansion with her twin sister, Melissa, for three years.

Carla opened up further, saying that Hefner's girlfriends living at the 22-bedroom pile are subject to a strict 9pm curfew and that it's 'like being in prison'.

She also told the newspaper that women can't invite friends to see you and male visitors are banned.
