HOLLY Madison doesn't want her daughter, Rainbow, to follow in her footsteps by becoming a Playboy model and has raised her to know "she has value."

The reality TV star, who dated Hugh Hefner for seven years, says she won't stop her toddler, Rainbow Aurora, with husband Pascal Rotella, from following in her footsteps in the future, but says she's raised her to know "she has value."

The 35-year-old beauty said: "When she is an adult, she will be able to do what she wants, but from day one I've tried to raise her to know she has value, her body parts have value, and she doesn't have to do something cheap or tawdry to get attention.

"If she wanted to [be a Bunny] -- and God forbid she did -- I would tell her my whole experience with it and I'd be honest that it wasn't what I thought it would be."

Holly, who recently claimed 89-year-old magazine publisher Hugh tried to bride her with $3 million if she agreed to stay with him, says she wrote her controversial memoir 'Down the Rabbit Hole' about her time at the Playboy mansion for her daughter.

She told Yahoo! Parenting: "I wanted my side of the story out there. I never had a voice. It was always shaped by the TV show or by Playboy or Hef himself. But I want my daughter to know why I made the decisions I did.

"Since writing the book, I've had a lot of practice defending myself and the choices I made and I think that has been good practice for discussing those decisions with her."
