(Newser) – The last of the Girls Next Door has closed the door of the Playboy Mansion behind her. Bridget Marquardt is following in the steps of Hugh Hefner exes Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson and getting her own place, she tells Us Magazine. Marquardt still has a "special relationship" with Hef, she says, but she felt it was time to move on.

Marquardt will be on the road for most of the next few months, filming Bridget's Sexiest Beaches for the Travel Channel. Hef, meanwhile, is dating 19-year-old twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon. "I just hope their hearts are in the right place and that he's happy," Marquardt said.
