Hugh Hefner‘s wedding to Crystal Harris is off, quite out of the blue. The wedding was supposed to be on Saturday but the 24 year-old ex playmate did a bunk after an apparent argument with her Playboy over the weekend. Hef tweeted a confirmation of the news writing, “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart.” But he’s also said that their supposed argument didn’t happen. Hefner tweeted an explanation that stated, “The TMZ report that Crystal & I ‘had a nasty argument,’ prompting her to call off the wedding, is untrue. There were no arguments.”
This may be small consolation, but at least she walked out before the wedding and didn’t ditch him at the altar or something. The Hef agrees, tweeting, “The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage.” The good news is that he has heaps of support pouring in from everyone, especially from his ex-girlfriends, the Girls Next Door. Holly Madison re-tweeted Kendra Wilkinson‘s message and added her own bit with, “U r too sweet. Wish I was there to support, too! RT @KendraWilkinson:@hughhefner we r comin over w some jack n coke… oh n a pipe lol”.
Also showing some love was Bridget Marquardt who also tweeted, “Just stopped by the mansion 2 give @hughhefner a hug. He seems to be handling this well. He even had a sense of humor about it! #LoveUHef”. He sure does, considering he tweeted, “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve scheduled a movie: “Runaway Bride.” Seems appropriate.” If anyone can get over this, we believe it’s the Hef. He’s such a rockstar.

Welcome to The Daily Hot – our round-up of the sexiest pics and stories on the interwebs. Today’s steaming pile of hotness:
In a photoshoot today, Girl Next Door Bridget Marquardt continued to look nothing like anyone who has ever lived next door to us. We’re guessing she must really drive up the property values in her neighborhood. The Playboy Playmate posed for pix in a teeny tiny bubblegum-pink bikini while lounging poolside in LA. Seems like she does this every day, but we’re not complaining. Enjoy!

Ke$ha debuted her NO-hawk last night at Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood gala. Seriously, what the hell is the deal with this girl? Crazy skimpy outfits decked out in fur, bizarre overdone eye-makeup, perpetually pissed off attitude and now this hair apparition? Oh my god….she’s turning into Rufio from Hook!
But thankfully not all celebs decided to come dressed as the Lost Boys. Chris Brown was out and about celebrating his status as the world champion of probation. Kelly Osboune and Mama Sharon looked regal, as did Brandy Norwood, who seemed cheery despite her controversial Dancing With The Stars dismissal. Check out the rest of the outfits in the gallery below!
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.
2009 was quite a year for Karissa and Kristina Shannon. Hugh Hefner‘s 19-year-old twin girlfriends went from obscurity to running around town with the world’s most famous playboy, and his third girlfriend, Crystal Harris. TheFABlife’s Libby Keatinge joined the bubbly blondes as well as other playmates, former girlfriends, and celebrities as they celebrated the end of 2009 and ushered in 2010 with an exclusive bash at the Playboy Mansion.

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.

She’s recently been eclipsed by the baby-making antics of her fellow former Girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson, but you can’t keep a Playboy bunny down for long, y’know. Bridget Marquardt is reportedly in talks to appear in the forthcoming series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in the UK – and we for one think it’s a brilliant idea.
The show’s been kind to its US competitors over the years, making stars and giving spin-off TV series to former jungle denizens David Gest and Janice Dickinson. Well, before we forgot about them again, that is. Anyhow, Bridget + bikini + gross Bushtucker Trials + British tabloids = gossip gold. Do it, Bridget, do it!
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]
With her new marriage and baby on the way, lately the only Girl Next Door we hear about is pregnant Kendra Wilkinson. What about her other former housemates and co-girlfriends of Hugh Hefner, Bridget Marquardt and Holly Madison? Although the two are leading different lives, the Playboy models showed they are still close pals when they met up – in matching pink – for a night out in West Hollywood last week. Holly is living the single life, while Bridget goes strong with boyfriend Nick Carpenter. Holly stays put mostly in Las Vegas, starring in cabaret show Peepshow, while Bridget travels internationally as part of her Travel Channel show, Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches. Holly may be dressing in outlandish red carpet regalia, like the eye catching black gown she wore to The Goods premiere in Las Vegas, while Bridget keeps it simple, shopping for chic Johnny Martin dresses in LA – but these two blonde hotties are still like two peas in a pod.
