Hef gets Hitched to 'Runaway Bride'

The randiest octogenarian on the planet, Hugh Hefner got hitched on New Year’s Eve to ‘runaway bride’ Crystal Harris eighteen months after she jilted him at the altar.

One would imagine somehow that old Hef is getting married to women young enough to be his granddaughter on a virtually annual basis, but despite his vaguely comedic playboy act that has turned him into both an icon and a parody of himself, this is only his third marriage. That’s some restraint for a man who spends his time languishing around the velvet halls of the Playboy mansion festooned in young blondes.

The couple sealed the deal more than a year after their original wedding in 2011 which went south after Ms Harris had second thoughts and did a runner. The blonde Playboy Playmate of the Month for December 2009 had what was described as a "change of heart" five days before a lavish wedding with all the trimmings.

She subsequently appeared on the cover of Playboy the following month with a "runaway bride" sticker covering her bottom half. Which if nothing else demonstrated that Hef had a sense of both humour and irony and didn’t try to airbrush her out of his existence for causing him mortal embarrassment.

Crystal (whose parents are British) tweeted this week that her doubts had been resolved and changed her name to ‘Crystal Hefner’ on Twitter – and as we all know – weddings can come and go, but changing your name on Twitter is a serious business. She went onto say that she was feeling “very happy, lucky, and blessed."

Hef meanwhile took to the Twitarrium to declare “Crystal & I married on New Year's Eve in the Mansion with Keith as my Best Man. Love that girl!” and “Happy New Year from Mr and Mrs Hugh Hefner!”

One has to wonder how many people gave Viagra vouchers as a wedding gift.
