Remember Barbi Benton? She was one of the trail of many to come of Hugh Hefner's ladies. She was first hired to be the co-host of Hefner's Playboy After Dark TV program when it launched in 1969. Their romance sprung from there. It was Barbie who found Hugh's house..the now famed Los Angeles Playboy Mansion in Holmby Hills section of LA, on the market and convinced Huge it was the right home for him. The mansion became famous during the 1970s through media reports of Hefner's lavish parties.
