In addition to detailing Hugh’s “controlling” and “restrictive” behavior towards her and the other playmates, Crystal pulls back the curtain on the unglamorous reality of the mansion itself.
In her book, Crystal says: “Over time, I saw that this place doesn’t really get cleaned that well and there’s mold. It just felt rundown and gross after a while.”
In fact, the mansion was apparently in such a state of disrepair that when she had blood work done in 2016, doctors told her that it looked like she was suffering from toxic mold exposure.
“The whole time the mansion was breaking me down, one way or another,” she writes. “Now it was breaking down my health. The house was literally making me sick.”
