"Dancing with the Stars" cutie Melissa Rycroft won the hearts of America, if not her "Bachelor," but did the southern gal also catch the eye of Hugh Hefner and get an offer to pose for Playboy?
This rumor can hop away with the rest of Hef's bunnies -- it's false! After Tuesday night's performance on "Dancing," Melissa told "Extra" the story about offers from the Playboy Mansion was not true. "Completely fabricated," Rycroft confirmed.
Newly booted dancer Holly Madison is no stranger to centerfolds -- the former "Girl Next Door" and Playboy employee dished she'd give Rycroft the thumbs-up to pose for the magazine! "I think she's absolutely gorgeous," Holly said.
Hugh Hefner gave "Extra" a personal tour of his famous residence -- the Playboy Mansion. The publisher wore his signature silk pajamas for an interview about his public breakup, his autobiography and the latest issue of the sexy mag. What is the Playboy founder's favorite part of the almost 22,000 sq. ft. home? "No question -- the bedroom. I do my best work in the bedroom."
Hefner admits he was heartbroken over his split with longtime girlfriend Holly Madison. "I was blindsided by the breakup... but Holly was looking for something more that I couldn't give her. She was looking for marriage and children." Hefner eventually moved on -- with two times the trouble. "Within two weeks, a pair of twins arrived and it turned out they were interested in being my girlfriends... Several girlfriends are easier to handle than one wife."
Hef talked about his autobiography, "Mr. Playboy," that lets readers into a life filled with luxury, women and sex. The author was not the least bit embarrassed about the book's most shocking revelation. "Probably an incident that occurred back in the late seventies where I almost swallowed a sex toy."
Sex icon Marilyn Monroe was the first to grace the cover of Playboy. This month's 55th anniversary issue features Carmen Electra. Hef has his eyes on two of Hollywood's married women for future issues. "Either Angelina Jolie or Scarlett Johansson."

The 82-year-old magazine publisher has been down due to the house changes -- but remains optimistic for the future. He said, "There's been moments that I've been down in the dumps about all this, and (my personal assistant) Mary told me to cheer up and pointed out that there are girls lined up outside the front gate. At my age, that's hard to believe, but it seems to be true."
