(Newser) – Hugh Hefner’s ex-girlfriend Holly Madison has quit her job as “Playmate Editor” at Playboy, citing a long commute and an “awkward” work environment, Us Magazine reports. “It got to be routine, which was sad for me, since I was initially so passionate,” Madison said in a blog post. Working with her ex was no fun, and traveling from the Las Vegas home of her new beau, Criss Angel, wasn’t worth it.
