I am not now nor have I ever been a 13-year-old boy. But I can imagine that back in the 80’s this might have been every 13-year-old boys dream. I’m talking about secret underground tunnels leading to the Playboy mansion from the homes of some very big celebrities. It is rumored that playboys, “Mr. J. Nicholson,” “Mr. W. Beatty,” “Mr. K. Douglas” and “Mr. J. Caan” all had tunnels leading to the basement of the mansion. A Playboy.com staffer claims that while pulling archived photos in preparation for Hugh Hefner’s April 9 birthday, he uncovered “some Polaroids from 1977 that showed a large excavation project at The Playboy Mansion.” Can you imagine heading to one of the most exclusive parties via the Playboy mansion tunnels? Talk about arriving in style.
Basically these guys, and a few others, had fast passes to the worlds greatest bachelor pad.
When the discovery was initially made, the editorial staff went to the Playboy Mansion and were given access by mansion staff to a basement area. There they found old photos, blueprints and plans.
The polaroids that were found were dated 1977. They showed a large excavation project at the residence.
The editorial staff contacted the Playboy Mansion about the polaroids they had found. The Playboy Mansion’s current general manager responded, “that’s probably when they built the tunnels in the 70s.”
All of the plans and blueprints clearly indicated that these tunnels led specifically to the homes of Jack Nicholson, Kirk Douglas, James Caan, and Mr. Warren Beatty, who all lived in mansions nearby.
When the Playboy.com team asked to see the actual tunnels, a staff member said (off the record), that he’d “heard” they were closed up sometime in 1989.
That was the same year Mr. Hefner married playmate Kimberley Conrad. Does that mean she put her foot down and said no more shenanigans?
The Playboy journalists then reached out to Mr. Hefner as well as reps for Nicholson, Caan, Douglas and Beatty, but none of them wished or agreed to comment. Why wont they spill the beans? There has to be some amazing stories behind this!
The team is now making a plea for more information to readers (and their Dads) who might have been hanging around secret entrances to basement tunnels at the mansion in the 70s or 80s.
A lot of people partied hard at the world famous house, so there has to be someone that has some information about these Playboy mansion tunnels. And if there isn’t, well that brings into question if they exist for real.
There is a lot of controversy over the tunnels. A lot of people are nonbelievers. Personally I think it’s made up. But I can see how it could be believable. It’s not like they don’t have a zoo and other very elaborate things on the grounds. This would not be that surprising.
Hugh Hefner recently revealed that he has slept with over a thousand women! He insists that he was always faithful during his three marriages but “made up for it” when he was single. For anyone who might be wondering about how much money Hef makes “training” Playboy bunnies and running men’s magazines you’re in for a shock. Hugh Hefner’s net worth is estimated at $43 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. When Playboy stock was at its highest he had a net worth of more than $200 million. Currently Hugh doesn’t own his own home. That Playboy Mansion, tunnels and all the property is owned by Playboy, and Hugh Hefner pays rent and expenses for himself and all those girlfriends. Do you want to know how much he pays in rent, including groceries, household supplies, utilities, cell phone and email? $53,593 per month. Considering his total monthly income is $290,580 I guess he can afford it. Now that you have seen one of the Playboy Mansion’s secrets, go here and check out what this ordinary man found behind a secret hiding spot in his grandparents closet.
