THREE NEW GIRLFRIENDS CALL THE FAMOUS PLAYBOY MANSION HOME WHEN "THE GIRLS NEXT DOOR" RETURNS THIS FALL ON E!

New Season Premieres Sunday, October 11th at 10:00pm ET/PT Followed by the Series Premiere of "Leave It To Lamas" at 10:30pm ET/PT

Los Angeles, CA, September 24, 2009. Major changes shook up the Playboy Mansion last season when Holly, Bridget and Kendra said goodbye and moved out of the famous address they once called home. But now a new chapter of "The Girls Next Door" begins as three new blond beauties, Crystal and twins Karissa and Kristina, settle into life at the Mansion. The new season follows Hef and his new girlfriends as they embark on fresh adventures, hilarious antics and all new craziness, from celebrity-filled parties to travels around the globe to romantic movie nights at home. The wild ride begins when the new season of "The Girls Next Door" premieres Sunday, October 11th at 10:00pm et/pt only on E!

In the premiere episode, fans are introduced to the new beauties, including Crystal Harris, his new "number one" girlfriend, who was born in Arizona and raised in San Diego. This 23-year-old met Hef at last year's Playboy Halloween Party and moved in one month later. Hef and Crystal bonded immediately over the heartbreak they shared from the recent loss of loved ones: Hef went through a painful break-up, and Crystal's high school sweetheart was tragically killed in the war in Iraq. Inspired by new love in her life, Crystal is choosing to live every moment at the Mansion to the fullest and with no regrets. She is also determined to dispel the rampant Internet rumors that claim she is a gold digger (despite having taken a job in the Mansion's scrapbook room for just $10 an hour!).

Nineteen-year-old identical twin sisters Karissa and Kristina from Clearwater, Florida, came to the Mansion for the first time where they were handpicked by Holly as finalists during the 55th Anniversary Playmate search. Practically inseparable since birth, these two women share everything. They are often referred to as being one person with the exact same personality traits, giving them ample opportunities to create havoc at the Mansion and with the staff. The twins are the first Playmates to share a double issue as 2009's Miss July and Miss August, and the premiere episode features their Playmate video shoot on the breathtaking grounds of the Mansion.

Karissa and Kristina head to Las Vegas to promote their Playboy issue, while Hef and Crystal go to see Holly perform in Peep Show. Crystal is more than a little nervous at the prospect of meeting Hef's former number one girlfriend, since it is no secret how attached he was to Holly. After she witnesses Hef's interaction with Holly and sees how well everyone gets along at a family-style dinner in the Palms Playboy Suite, Crystal comes away impressed with Hef's ability to maintain good relationships with his exes. After dinner and with nerves calmed, Hef and Crystal head to see the sexy burlesque show featuring Holly as Bo Peep, an innocent girl in search of love. During the show, Hef is pulled out of the crowd to go on stage with Holly and the audience goes wild.

As the season continues, the foursome heads overseas for a memorable journey to the San Remo Music Festival in Italy where they meet up with 55th Anniversary Playmate Dasha Astafieva for fun, laughs and just a pinch of Italian trouble. The group also takes a side trip to the small town of Abruzzi, an Italian village where the twins meet some long lost relatives for the first time. The visit by Hef and the girls has the locals rolling out the red carpet and treating their guests to an over-the-top, nine-course Italian feast.

Also coming up this season, Tinseltown takes over the Mansion when acclaimed filmmaker Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2, X-Men 3) comes to direct Hef and the Girls in the latest and hottest Guitar Hero commercial. In addition, celebrated director Sofia Coppola casts the twins in their first movie roles in the upcoming film, "Somewhere," starring Stephen Dorff.

Time brings changes but there is never a shortage of adventures, laughs and love at the Playboy Mansion. Don't miss a minute of the new season when The Girls Next Door premieres Sunday, October 11th at 10:00pm ET/PT only on E!

The Girls Next Door is executive produced by Kevin Burns, multiple Emmy Award-winning producer of numerous non-fiction cable specials and series. Produced by Prometheus Entertainment, Alta Loma Entertainment and Fox Television Studios.
