Having seen Holly Madison’s thousand-yard-stare on The Girls New Door, we assumed something like this might happen. Now apparently Holly Madison confronted Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris about their engagement this week. When she learned that her former flame Hef had popped the question, Holly admitted, “I’m very surprised. I have a lot of different feelings on it. I don’t just feel one way. I kind of didn’t want to put a generic statement out there like ‘Congratulations!’ because I felt everyone would see through that.” Holly and Hef of course parted ways in 2008, after which Madison dated Benji Madden and Criss Angel among others. We can’t imagine Holly’s current boyfriend, All Time Low member Jack Barakat, is super-thrilled that his girl seems to still have feelings for her ex-grandpa boyfriend.
So in a terrible move contemplated by many women and stopped by (almost) an equal number of best friends, Holly met with Hef and Crystal at the Playboy Mansion this week to tell them her feelings on the engagement, aka scream “Why not me?” and throw baby-oil on Hef’s smoking jacket. “I wanted to see him and Crystal and tell everybody face-to-face how I felt,” Madison explained, who filmed the encounter for the new season of her E! show Holly’s World. “I’d describe it as awkward. I just wanted to get my feelings out about the engagement and I wanted to talk to him first. It’s definitely awkward to feel like you’re confronting someone. I’m glad I did it. I wanted to be fair and tell him first.” Let’s hope Holly got the closure she needed. If not, we can tune into her show and see a beautiful woman cry over the love of a mummy. Which would make an amazing title for Hef’s next reality show.
