Former Girls Next Door
star Bridget Marquardt
, who split from Playboy
mogul Hugh Hefner
last year, loves using trapeze equipment to stay in shape and has decided to include it in her new home. She explained: Trapeze is a great workout. It got me in the best shape in my life. The one I’m putting in my house is vintage style -- with velvet on the ropes and shiny silver balls on the ends. Bridget and boyfriend Nicholas Carpenter.
Bridget, 35, moved out of the Playboy Mansion earlier this year and spent $1.7 million on a home in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles. Speaking about the property, Bridget said: "It's my first purchase like this! I've never had my own house before. We ended up with a Tuscan-style house."
