An episode first recovered over a decade ago, “The Bentley Twins” are making their only CLL apearance along with Hugh Hefner who joins them live in studio. Now 100% complete with a huge audio upgrade.
From Wiki: Sandy Bentley (born May 18, 1978 in Joliet, Illinois) is notable both individually and with her sister Amanda (Mandy) Bentley as the Bentley Twins. The 5 foot 9 inch tall twins were featured on the May 2000 cover of Playboy Magazine and were well known as Hugh Hefner‘s live-in lovers at the Playboy Mansion, during 1999 and 2000.
Subsequent to her relationship with Hefner, Sandy became involved with financier Mark Yagalla, who lavished her with expensive gifts, including jewels. After Yagalla was arrested for conducting a Ponzi scam, a USA federal receiver was appointed to recover assets which Yagalla had embezzled from the clients of his $40 million Asbury Capital Fund. Sandy was ordered to return the gifts he had given her, including nearly one million dollars in jewelry.
Sandy and her new boyfriend, nightclub doorman Michael Tardio, collaborated to sell some of the jewelry. Tardio made arrangements to meet a potential buyer on the evening of September 2, 2002; however, Tardio and his accomplice Christopher Monson were found later that night, riddled with bullets in a burning Mercedes SUV, parked in Studio City, California. The jewelry was never recovered.
In 2003, Yagalla pleaded guilty to securities fraud, and was sentenced to five years and five months at Pensacola Federal Prison. The government recovered $1.3 million from an auction of his assets.
In February 2011, the crime was featured in the CBS documentary series 48 Hours Mystery and a $75,000 reward was offered by the City Council of Studio City, California, to help solve the crime. Many of those involved in the events were patrons of Garden of Eden nightclub, where Tardio was a doorman.
