The Many Loves Of Hugh Hefner, The Luckiest Bastard In The World


In an interview with Hugh Hefner about the new documentary Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel, the titular Playboy founder is quoted saying, “The notion that Playboy turns women into sex objects is ridiculous. Women are sex objects. If women weren’t sex objects, there wouldn’t be another generation.” How sweet!

While the documentary focuses on Hef’s role as sexual entrepreneur in the ’60s, most of us know him as the somewhat doddering 84-yr-old nudie mag tycoon who patiently dealt with the exploits of his alarmingly much younger girlfriends in The Girls Next Door. But what about the very, very many lady-objects that have passed in and out of Hugh’s life? Don’t they deserve a documentary too, possibly directed by Ken Burns? We might not have the budget for that (yet), but until then enjoy a trip down Hugh’s memory lane (while he still has one) as we revisit some of the most beautiful women who ever took a peek under Hef’s robe.

Holly Madison Doesn’t Watch New Girls Next Door


Holly Madison doesn’t like to watch her ex-boyfriend Hugh Hefner‘s reality show with his three replacement girlfriends, Crystal Harris and twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon.  “I had a great time with Hef and the girls when they came to see “Peepshow” and hang out in Vegas. I don’t watch the other episodes, though, because it kind of makes me mad. The girls need to focus on what makes them unique and not doing the same things Bridget, Kendra, and I have already done on the show. Even camping in the backyard was an idea I had for an episode that we never got around to shooting. And guess what they just showed? The girls camping in the backyard. I don’t want to look behind, I want to look forward.” The show apparently doesn’t miss Holly too much, as they had a record breaking 2.4 million viewers for the new season.

Kendra’s Candyland Baby Shower


Kendra Wilkinson is about to pop out her baby boy and the E! reality star had a Playmate-studded baby shower to get ready to welcome her new little one into the world. Hugh Hefner, new girlfriends Crystal Harris, and Karissa and Kristina Shannon attended the event. “The girls are going to Kendra’s baby shower today,” Hef wrote on Twitter. “Crystal, the twins, Holly, Bridget & Kendra will all be there. How can I stay away?”

Playboy Mansion secretary Mary O’Connor hosted the Candyland themed event at her home, and former Girls Next Door Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt arrived early to hang blue balloons and blue streamers. One former playmate who was clearly NOT invited: Kimberly Hefner, who Hef filed for divorce from this week after an eleven year separation. [Photo: Getty Images]

First Look: Hef’s Twins Do Playboy


It’s here! Hugh Hefner‘s twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon appear in the July/August double issue of Playboy magazine, where the hotties talk about their new home, dating Hef, and life as twins.

“When we talk to people, we don’t say, ‘We live at the Mansion.’ We say, ‘Yeah, that’s our house. We’re home.’ We even have Hef’s famous round bed in our room,” the twins say.

In their new issue, Karissa and Kristina don matching sailor hats and tennis skirts, continuing their tradition of dressing alike and doing everything together since they were little.

“We feel as if we’re one. In each other we always have a best friend,” they say. Check out photos from their issue in our gallery! [Photo: Courtesy Playboy]

Hef Can’t Tell Twin Girlfriends Apart

hugh hefner & the shannon twins

Those who believed Hugh Hefner had genuine romantic feelings for girlfriends Karissa and Kristina Shannon will be heartbroken to learn that the octogenarian can’t actually tell the 19-year-old twins apart. “I have one little trick, one little mark,” Hef reportedly confessed. “But other than that, I don’t know.” But what about those long, soul-searching conversations that are the hallmark of any relationship? Don’t tell us you’re only interested in sex, Hef!

If that wasn’t enough creepy old guy talk for you, Hef also hopes Kendra Wilkinson‘s bun in the oven will wind up a bunny at the Ranch. “I’m sure the baby will end up at the Mansion…We have a lot of friends and second generation Playmates, so there are a lot of kids around the Mansion these days.” We’re sure doctors will be working around the clock to keep him alive for her 18th birthday.
