The recession is not just for us poors: Hard times are falling on the silicone-bedecked halls of the Playboy Mansion. Will foreclosure throw Hugh Hefner and his many girlfriends out on their asses? Not if Kristen Schaal at “The Daily Show” has something to do with it! Get out your wallets, ladies. [The Daily Show]

Hugh Hefner is taking a move out of Willy Wonka’s playbook. He has tucked 10 golden tickets into December issues of Playboy, which went on sale last Friday. Folks who find the lucky tickets will get a VIP pass for two to the magazine’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream Party” in August, and will get to rest their loins at the Petit Ermitage hotel in L.A. Here’s betting that Hef will also be testing these 10 readers to see if any of them will turn into giant blueberries. Maybe the one left at the end will get to take over the Playboy empire?

Are you a woman who’s always dreamed of smelling like a Playboy Playmate? Are you a man who has long hoped of smelling like Hugh Hefner? Well, your Playboy-perfumed wishes have come true. In partnership with Coty, Playboy will be unleashing three new fragrances upon the world, two for women and one for men. For the women, there’s Play It Lovely, Play It Sexy, and Play It Spicy. For the dudes, there’s New York Playboy, even though, ah, the Playboy Mansion is located in Los Angeles. Personally, we sort of like the bunny-eared bottle, but we’re partial to rabbit icons that way. [Racked] Keep reading »
“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. It’s the attraction between the sexes that makes the world go ’round. That’s why women wear lipstick and short skirts.”

Playboy Playmate (and Hef’s ex) Karissa Shannon makes no bones about being a cougar-in-training as she broadcasts her affections for 12-year-old Jaden Smith. Sexualizing children doesn’t suddenly become acceptable if it’s a boy being sexualized instead of a girl, Karissa! [Sociological Images] Keep reading »
“Well, if there was, it’s the one that’s sitting right across from me, Mary O’Connor. She’s my secretary, and she’s the wonder of my life.”
—Hugh Hefner explaining that there is one woman over the age of 70 that he’d consider dating. Mary, I think it’s time to make your move. Though I secretly hope she has a hot relationship with a 25-year-old beefcake and would tell Hugh he’s too old for her. [NY Post]

Hugh Hefner: I think there is no single answer, no single road to Mecca. I have been married twice, and those were not the happiest times of my life. Part of the problem, quite frankly, is that when you get married, the romance disappears and the children arrive and the love is transferred. It shouldn’t be that way, but too often it is transferred to the children.
New York Times: There is more to life than being adored. There are other rewards to marriage.
Hefner:Unfortunately, they come from other women.

“One of the girls asked me if I wanted to go upstairs to Hef’s room. In my head I could hear my mom’s voice: ‘You know they have orgies there.’ I said “Okay, if I have to.” It seemed like every other girl was going, and if I didn’t it would be weird. One by one, each girl hopped on Hef and had sex with him… for about a minute. I studied their every move. Then it was my turn… it was very weird. I wasn’t thinking about how much older Hef was — all the body parts worked the same. I wanted to be there.”

Aww, that’s sweet: Playboy babe Holly Madison is debuting a line of edible candy necklaces for the Las Vegas candy store, The Sugar Factory. Random, no? It only kinda-sorta makes sense when you consider she lives out in Vegas, performing in the striptease “Peepshow” and filming her soon-to-be-aired reality show, “Holly’s World.” An edible candy necklace is just about the last product we’d expect one of Hugh Hefner‘s ex-girlfriends to endorse. And yet it just may be the only product we’d be willing to put in our mouth. [SugarFactory.com] Keep reading »
Kendra Wilkinson has a sex tape, Vivid Video, which has released a string of celebrity sex tapes, has just announced. The star of “Kendra,” “The Girls Next Door,” and her own “E! True Hollywood Story” can be seen in the video having sex with an unidentified male who is not her husband, football player Hank Baskett. The tape was made prior to their marriage and prior to her moving into the Playboy mansion, where Wilkinson was one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriend’s and a Playmate. “We know that Kendra has millions of fans and we feel that it’s rare to find well-produced, hardcore footage of a star of her magnitude,” says Vivid CEO Steve Hirsch. “We believe this could be our all time best selling celebrity tape.” Personally, I feel bad reporting this news, but Amelia, our editor, made me do it. Wilkinson seems like a nice girl, she’s a young mother, and I’m sure her husband will be less than thrilled. The lesson here? Don’t make a sex video unless you want to risk the chance that the entire world may see it. And who the hell wants that? Keep reading »
