Hugh Hefner back with ‘runaway bride’ Crystal Harris, and Hef “forgave” her

I had to go back and look through our Hugh Hefner archives because I thought all of this stuff went down several years ago. As it turns out, it was less than a year ago when Playmate Crystal Harris pulled a runner and she and Hugh Hefner canceled their wedding plans. Crystal was having an affair with Dr. Phil’s son, you see, and it’s not like Crystal and Hefner had some amazing physical energy together – according to Crystal, they had sex once and it lasted two minutes (two of the worst minutes ever). When Crystal got cold feet for the wedding, Hef made her move out and there was a kafuffle but people didn‘t pay that much attention. Hef moved on and the reaction was basically “Hef is kind of gross, but Crystal is gross too, meh.” According to Radar, they’ve come back together though.

Hugh Hefner has let his ex-fiancee Crystal Harris move back into the Playboy Mansion, has exclusively learned!

After being unceremoniously dumped just a week before his wedding by Crystal, who snuck out of the Playboy Mansion and fled into the arms of another man, Hef has forgiven her and welcomed her home with open arms.

“Crystal begged Hef to let her come back,” a source exclusively told “He surprisingly doesn’t have any hard feelings against her, so he let her move back into the Mansion.”

The blonde bombshell, who graced the cover of Playboy in July 2011, the same month she was a runaway bride, moved back into the Mansion this week and while Hef is happy to have her back, it caused major turmoil for his current girlfriend.

“Shera Berchard, Hef’s #1 girlfriend, moved out as soon as Crystal moved back in,” the source said.

“Hef and Crystal are really happy back together,” the source said.

Will there be a wedding now for the infamous bachelor and his new/old girlfriend?

“Never say never where Hugh Hefner is concerned,” the source said.

I hope he doesn’t try to marry her again. Just make Crystal his “girlfriend” and let her move back into the mansion and somebody bring Hef some soup, for the love of God. As my mother always says, “He can’t even hear himself fart.” So why the insistence that Crystal is coming back as his “girlfriend”? I don’t know. He treats most of these women like his daughters – complete with curfews and household tasks and life advice. And then he pops a Viagra and all bets are off. Gross.

    Awww…true, sweet love is happening again for these two. My faith in humanity has been restored.

  2. Sillyone says:

    I am going to guess that since Crystal’s career didn’t go anywhere dating Dr Phil’s son, she went crawling back to Hef hoping to try to cash in on some more playboy money.

    I am not even going to let my mind wonder on the things she had to promise to do to get back into the mansion…YUCK!

    • brin says:

      She’s probably assigned to “give him the soup and clean up the poop” duty.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Yup. Her “solo career” didn’t pan out, so she went crawling back to Hef. Wonder if she still has that car he gave her…

    • gg says:

      It’s the “begging to move back in” thing that is the telling factor here. Sounds like she had nowhere else free to live. Otherwise she’d be begging for more wrinkly viagara 2-minute lovin.

  3. lil ole me says:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! GET HOLLY AND BRIDGET BACK IN THAT MANSION RIGHT THIS MINUTE!!!! I used to watch The Girls Next Door in college, I loved that damn show. Crystal musta ran outta money.

    • sup says:

      the “holly trinity” was what made that show. i quit watching after the original trio left.

  4. Agnes says:

    so gross on so many levels. they deserve each other.

  5. qtpi says:

    Yep. Her “career” went nowhere. Haven’t heard a peep about her since this whole fiasco went down.

    As a mother of a little girl this disgusts me. How embarrassing for her parents.

  6. DeE says:

    ran out of money…

  7. snowflake says:

    bitch is ugly. dont get it

  8. Green_Eyes says:

    A publicity stunt from the get go and trying to recreate another.??? Seriously, just too gross…. To think of it as anything else.

  9. Patricia says:

    I guess changing his diapers beats being a penniless nobody.

  10. Tiffany says:

    I miss Holly. I like her and always felt her love for Hef was genuine.And if this woman is 25, I can sell you a island in Kansas.

  11. Rita says:

    I think Hef let her come back because he’s in the process of organizing his pallbearers. Four playmates should do it. He can’t weigh but 90 pounds.

  12. Orange Cone says:

    what else was she going to do?? *eyeroll

  13. Tastykakes says:

    Is anyone else on a Hugh Hefner death watch or is it just me?

  14. Antídoto says:

    Haha now Holly is gonna freak out again!

    And Ugh i hate the sight of crystal she is a shameless golddigger

  15. Lizzie K says:

    Aw, this is just nasty.

  16. Amanda G says:

    For such a brilliant man, he is completely dumb when it comes to women (or young girls I suppose.) They deserve each other.

  17. Kim says:

    She ran out of money & he hired her again LOL. But he is really stupid if he believes her or marries her.

  18. Kosmos says:

    I think I’m going to be sick….cannot stand him and all he represents, and then there are the women who stoop to this for the big bucks and fame, gimme a break….it’s all tragic and gag material.

  19. Serenity now says:

    Funnily enough she recently visited my neck of the woods (Melbourne Australia). It was reported that Crystal was ‘hanging out’ with some of the local AFL players (Aussie rules footy). I remember she called them rugby players and me thinking what an intelligent, cultured and worldly woman she was.

  20. valleymiss says:

    This publicity stunt didn’t work the first time, why would Hef think it’s gonna work now? Hef, your brand is failing. People don’t care about an 80 year old guy who pays women to sleep with him. Somewhere, Kimberly Conrad is laughing at this…

  21. Beatriz says:

    Hm. Ever since Holly left him, I get the feeling that Hef deeply regretted not marrying her, so he puts up with a lot of more sh!t with girls, so that he doesn’t make the same mistake twice. Why else would he take Crystal back, he could just pick one of the hundreds of aspiring playboy models to screw with.

  22. sup says:

    should have stayed with holly when you had the chance, she’s moved on.

  23. Aubra says:

    He’s adorable though!


  24. Shannon says:

    Oh gosh she has that poor Cavalier in the Playboy cover pic 🙁 I feel so bad for the little guy.
