I’m getting disorientated now.
First, Hefner’s marrying Crystal Harris and she’s the happiest bride to be in the world. “I’m going to have the most romantic wedding ever” she told the press. To make the wedding especially romantic she stripped off and did a bunch of photos for the July issue of Playboy magazine. As you do.
Next minute, she’s packing her bags, cancelling the wedding and ending the relationship. Why? Because the poor girl realised that Hef wasn’t entirely monogamous.
Who’d have thought? Discovering that the octogenarian playboy – who’s been cohabiting openly with a bunch of women for decades – wasn’t the faithful type; must have been a terrible shock for demure young Crystal.
Weeping for America’s TV show, Entertainment Tonight, Ms Harris revealed that she “wasn’t the only woman in Hef’s
life.” Naturally, once she understood that, she had no option but to cancel her romantic wedding because of her quaint belief that “a marriage is between two people.”
Wait. Let’s be serious for a minute.
If all this tosh is just marketing for whatever she wants her “career” to be, and if Hefner’s complicit because it keeps the silly old goat in the public eye, and in the money, then why don’t the two ex-lovebirds get their stories straight?
Crystal told Entertainment Tonight that she and Hefner discussed cancelling the wedding and the pair of them laughed about it, agreed to cancel and then considered going ahead with the wedding reception but not the wedding.
Hefner, on the other hand, told the press (or Tweeted, can’t remember which) that he didn’t realise Crystal was going to ditch him and that she’d left him in the dark about ending the relationship and cancelling the wedding. Sources close to Hefner have said he’s terribly upset about breaking up with Crystal. And etc.
Are they saying different things just in order to create a silly story? Did Hef pre-plan the Runaway Bride sticker for the July Playboy weeks in advance? Did they really invite hundreds of guests to a showbiz wedding at Playboy Mansion knowing all along that they weren’t going to get married and that the guests would be tricked?
Who the hell knows?! It wouldn’t be at all surprising if Hefner went ahead with the wedding reception rather than just lose all the money already paid for the food, drinks, flowers and marquees. After all, if he’s blase about having a Runaway Bride, why shouldn’t he throw a Cancelled Wedding Reception?
