If you’re skeptical about the motives of a former Playmate who skipped out on marrying Hugh Hefner at the last minute because she realized his “Playboy lifestyle” was not for her…we’re not going to stop you. Runaway bride Crystal Harris tried to explain why she left Hef at the altar on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show this morning and, well, try to give the benefit of the doubt.”Hef’s lifestyle isn’t the most normal lifestyle,” said the 85-year-old’s girlfriend of almost two and a half years. “This isn’t the lifestyle for me, multiple girls around all the time, the Playboy lifestyle. I don’t know. I just wanted to be true to myself…I’ve been having second thoughts about everything. It all happened so fast, and they were going to air a show on it. It was all happening too fast for me.” The aforementioned show, scheduled to air on Lifetime, has now been canceled.
While Harris says Hef was agreeable to her departure (“He said he was just doing this wedding for me,” she told Seacrest. “He thought that’s what I wanted. And we were both kind of relieved”), the octogenarian has got in at least one barb to his ex, retweeting a fan’s observation that Harris released her single on the same day she left him. Aside from the expense of canceling the marriage, there’s also the issue of Crystal being listed as “Mrs. Crystal Hefner” on the cover of this month’s Playboy. It’s almost enough to make you sorry for an aging multi-millionaire who surrounds himself with young, surgically enhanced women and sells naked photos of them. Almost.
