A lucky escape...

When Hugh Hefner, 85 announced that he intended to wed one of his lucky girlfriends, Crystal Harris, 25, the world looked on with shock, awe and a more than a little bit of 'Jesus, let's hope she's making lots of money out of this hideous arrangement'. Well, it transpires that all the dosh in the world, can't actually convince a person to marry someone 60 years their senior. Crystal has given her first interview since calling off the wedding, and says she regrets 'disappointing everybody'.

Crystal told The Daily Mail,'I wasn't the only woman in Hef's life. I didn't feel comfortable in my heart knowing that and getting married to him, because a marriage is between two people. 'We had to deal with lawyers, I never had a lawyer for anything.'

She continued, 'It was crazy. It happened so fast. Hef asked me to marry him in front of three cameras and a photographer, I thought it was something I wanted.'

The cancelled wedding could leave a $250,000 shaped hole in Hefners pocket, after invitations were sent out, and venues booked. Hugh had also featured 'the new Mrs Hefner' on the cover of Playboy, and was forced to stick a 'Runaway Bride' badge on every edition.
