Hugh Hefner’s Wedding is Off!

Hugh Hefner was set to wed Crystal Harris this weekend, but the 25-year-old got cold feet at the last minute!  Hef Tweeted “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart”.  This is all rather sudden, seeing as how I just covered the Hugh Hefner Crystal Harris Pre-nup, or lack thereof, and all was peachy!

Harris announced 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." Privacy?  This is Hugh Hefner and the Playboy empire we are talking about, there will be no such thing!

The timing of her decision was in poor taste, especially when you factor in that this month’s Playboy cover, which has just hit the stands, has Harris on the cover and reads:  “Introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner!”   Ouch.

The couple had been engaged since Christmas Eve, and the wedding was to take place on Saturday at the Mansion before 300 guests.  This would have marked the third marriage for Hef, and the first for Harris, who would have worn a pink Romona Keveza gown.

Harris wasted zero time snagging some limelight, spilling the details to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Wednesday morning!  Harris told Seacrest the following:

"I called it off because I didn’t think it was the right thing for me to do. It was mutual between Hef and I. There was no fight. We sat down and we talked about it."

"Hef’s lifestyle isn’t the most normal lifestyle," Harris said. "That’s the thing. This isn’t the lifestyle for me — the multiple girls all around. It’s not the lifestyle I wanted."  Umm…and what did she expect from the Playboy Mansion, exactly?

"For a while I’ve been having second thoughts about everything," she continued. "I haven’t really been at peace with myself lately. I didn’t think it was really fair to him. They were gonna air a show (on Lifetime) on it. It was all happening too fast for me."

Harris said when she broke the news to Hef, "He understood. We both agreed that it wasn’t the best idea to get married."  She went on to insinuate that he was just doing the wedding for her, because he thought it was what she wanted.

Yet Hef seemed baffled by not only her decision to end the engagement, but her immediate interview with Seacrest, tweeting the following:

"Crystal did an interview with Ryan Seacrest this morning to explain everything, but I still don’t have a clue. I didn’t see any of this coming, but I’m glad things went wrong before the marriage instead of after. Live & learn."

Not one to stay down, Hef mentioned that a parade of ex-playmates have either stopped by or called to offer support.

"The outpouring of support & affection from so many quarters is really touching," Hef wrote. "The one who has been the most supportive is Anna (Berglund). She didn’t see this coming either, & she’s Crystal’s best friend."

I think we would all love some support from Anna Berglund…
