Perhaps is not such exciting news now that we live in an era when 8th graders go to Hooters on a field trip, but a new Playboy Club opened this weekend in Mayfair, London. Hugh Hefner first brought a Playboy Club to London in 1966, but it closed after 15 years. The new Playboy Club in London features “bunnies” ages 19 to 40 who’ll work in either the cocktail lounge or the casino while they wear Playboy’s iconic bunny costumes. And if men’s enthusiasm to visit the Playboy Club in any way rivals women’s enthusiasm to work for it, Hef won’t have to worry: 3,000 women competed for 80 positions to don a Playboy Bunny tail!
Alas, not everyone is so happy about the new Playboy Club. Keep reading »
In Coed magazine’s collection of photos “Hef: The Early Years,” I couldn’t help but notice how much young Hugh Hefner looks like Rupert Everett, the British actor best known in America for pointing out to Julia Roberts that no one was chasing her in “My Best Friend’s Wedding.” Well, at least if there’s ever a “Playboy: The Movie,” we have a casting idea.

“I haven’t gotten my save the date yet. I’m not joking, I’m really pissed off about it. I got a save the date from one of my closest friends for that date. I’m planning on going to Hef’s but I haven’t gotten the save the date for that same date. I’m getting kind of antsy because I need to pick which wedding to go to … It’s Crystal that does the wedding planning. She’s the girl! If she doesn’t give me a save the date soon I’m going to have to put in my save the date with the other wedding.”
—Kendra Wilkinson sees how many times she can say “save the date” in one minute as she tells E! Online that she’s a little annoyed with Hugh Hefner‘s soon-to-be-bride, Crystal Harris. Maybe they instituted a no-exes policy? Or maybe your invite just got lost in the mail? [E! Online] Keep reading »
- Crystal Harris, the 24-year-old Playboy Playmate and fiancée of Hugh Hefner, is reportedly sneaking around with Jordan McGraw, 24, son of TV’s Dr. Phil. The pair were allegedly seen at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont — the last place any celebrity should go if they’re looking for privacy — being flirty. Jordan McGraw allegedly tried to hold of Crystal’s hand and kissed her on the shoulder. Uh oh. I am imagining blonde babies with big ol’ moustaches. [Oh No They Didn't!]

- Rebecca Black dropped by Jay Leno’s couch to sing “Friday” last night. It did not go so hot. Also, Lady Gaga has called Rebecca a “genius,” which is laying it on a bit thick. [TMZ, The Superficial]

Well I’ll be: Hugh Hefner is engaged and his fianceé, Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris, seems sweet and down-to-earth. The 24-year-old spoke with that venerable news institution, News of the World, last May and addressed the question we’ve all been wondering: how wrinkly is an 84-year-old’s ball sack? No! Ew! That was not what we were wondering! What we were wondering … is she with Hef for his money? And the answer is … no. They just have, like, this really strong connection, you guys.

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.”
Blonde (duh) Crystal Harris will be Hef’s third wife: he divorced his first wife, Mildred Williams, in 1959 and his second wife, Kimberly Conrad, in 2009. 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?

I’ve watched my fair share of pornography on the internet and it’s pretty obvious that most of it is made for dudes. Before nudity even occurs, I’m already turned off by the tacky costuming, bad story lines, lack of chemistry, and obviously unwashed stars. I’m a stickler for details. That’s why I’m glad to hear that there’s a lesbian pornographer who actually cares about these things. Jincey Lumpkin (best name ever) went from being a high paid lawyer for the fashion industry to founding Juicy Pink Box, a lesbian porn company. And the Daily Beast is calling her the “Hugh Hefner of Lesbian Porn.” Keep reading »
