Hugh Hefner's Playboy reality show franchise is set to grow again in August, with the debut of a 'The Girls Next Door' spin-off called 'The Girls Next Door: Bunny House.' Among the cast-members will be Jayde Nicole, a familiar face to anyone who has been following the soap opera of contemporary L.A. life as it has played out on the small screen.

Nicole, who was named Playboy's Playmate of the Year in 2008, has appeared on 'The Girls Next Door,' 'The Hills' and her then-boyfriend Brody Jenner's reality series, 'Bromance.' She also received some unwanted attention in the gossip press over a bizarre incident last summer, when she was roughed up at a nightclub by 'Girls Gone Wild' impresario Joe Francis. Nicole spoke to PopEater about clothes, guys, and the pressures of living her life on reality TV.

"Being on 'The Hills' was really stressful," says Nicole over the telephone from Los Angeles, with her longhair teacup chihuahua, Pumpkin, audible in the background.

"On our new show, 'Bunny House,' they let you be your true personality and it's a lot more fun. 'The Hills' was a lot more drama, they were always trying to create drama and there was a lot more guidance on where you were supposed to go and what you were supposed to say," she said.
