Former Playboy playmate Karissa Shannon and her twin Kristina are older now and have some stories to tell.  According to Karissa she became pregnant with Hugh Hefner's baby at the age of 19.

Karissa didn't the then 84-year-old Playboy founder that she was pregnant and had an abortion.  She says she was happy to do so felt disgusted being pregnant by Hefner, "like there was something like an alien inside me."

From People:

At the time, Karissa said she "didn't think it was possible" to conceive a baby with Hefner, who was 84 at the time. After all, Madison had publicly struggled to become a mom toward the end of her relationship with Hefner. But, Karissa noted, "We were about the youngest girlfriends he had had — it was the end of [when I was] 19, I was getting ready to turn 20."

She instantly knew she wouldn't keep the baby. What's more, "I didn't want him to know that I was pregnant. I didn't want him to want me to have it. I didn't want to be stuck even more inside that bubble. I think it's a way for him to control me even more, have me on a leash," she said.

"I felt disgusted with my body," she continued. "I felt like there was something like an alien inside me. I was grossed out. I just wanted to get it over with."

The twins cried as they recalled the secret visit to the abortion clinic they planned, with the most devastating decision of all falling to Kristina, who realized she couldn't accompany Karissa to her appointment for fear of attracting paparazzi attention.

They're not the only former girlfriends of Hugh Hefner with some stories to tell and if I had to guess they won't be the last.  From what it sounds like life at the mansion isn't all it was cracked up to be.
