Crystal Harris on Playboy

Hugh Hefner has decided to make a very last minute change to the upcoming issue of Playboy magazine after recent events.


Hugh Hefner, 85, and Crystal Harris, 25, were scheduled to get married this past Saturday at the Playboy mansion with over 300 guests in attendance. The bride called off the wedding at the last minute, and on Tuesday it was officially announced that the couple would not be getting married.


Crystal Harris is featured on the cover of the July issue of Playboy wearing a sailor hat with the headline “America’s Princess introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner”. Hefner has decided to add a sticker over his former fiancées photo reading “Runaway Bride in this issue!”


Hefner tweeted on that Wednesday that “recent events call for a special sticker on the July cover.”


Hef’s tweet was immediately followed by Harris’ own announcement on her blog: “After much deep reflection and thought, I have decided to end my engagement with Hef. I have the utmost respect for Hef and wish him the best going forward. I hope the media will give each of us the privacy we deserve during this time.”


Meanwhile, July’s issue features a seven-page pictorial with Harris posing as bide and announcing, “I’m happier now than I’ve ever been in my whole life.”


In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday morning, Harris said, “I called it off because I didn’t think it was the right thing for me to do.” She goes on to say that “It was mutual between Hef and I. There was no fight. We sat down and we talked about it”.


Perhaps Hef’s age is finally getting to him. If the decision were mutual, would he be moving forward with these stickers? Perhaps his age is irrelevant, and as always, he’s a brilliant self-promoter.


Although many of the magazines have already been sent out to newsstands in preparation for their Friday release, a Playboy spokeswoman stated that the magazine is adding the stickers to as many issues as possible.
