Twenty-four-year old Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris is going to make an honest man out of Hugh Hefner: Hef proposed to the December 2009 pin-up and “Girls Next Door” star on Christmas Eve. Because he’s a modern man despite his 84 years of age, Hef tweeted the proposal immediately after it happened. “After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve,” he tweeted. Hef later clarified, “Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. I didn’t mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all.”

While it may seem at face value that marrying a woman 60 years your junior is icky, do not misunderstand their deep and serious bond: according to her Twitter bio, she’s not just a Playmate and “Hef’s girl” but an “entrepreneur.” So what’s Crystal working on?

It’s been a little while since a new celebrity sex tape has made the rounds on the interwebs. But now one supposedly starring Nicki Minaj is on the verge of being released. The tape supposedly shows Nicki, pre-fame, topless and in some compromising positions. Allegedly, this is the second sex tape featuring Miss Minaj. MediaTakeout.com has posted a still of the video, which is grainy but possibly real. Supposedly, the tape is currently being shopped around for $100, 000 and if it’s released, I know Regis Philbin will be running to his computer to download it immediately. Gross. [PopEater]

While holiday shopping over the weekend, I heard “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” like, five times. I really wish Andy Williams would stop trying to convince me—because really, give me summer anytime. Right now it’s cold and when the sun sets at 4 p.m., I get depressed on a daily basis.
