Looks like weâ€™ll end 2010 will Hugh Hefner engaged! It may be hard to believe, but the original â€˜ladies manâ€™ has apparently decided to take another stab marriage, this time with his 24-year-old girlfriend Crystal Harris.
A little known fact about â€˜ole Hef is that he has been officially married for quite some time to old school centerfold Kim Conrad. Their divorce was finalized at long last, opening the door for yet another bride-to-be.
With 60 years between them, the happy couple proudly announced their engagement this weekend. Hef apparently proposed to her on Christmas Day, placing the ring on Crystalâ€™s finger as tears of joy streamed down her face. The magazine mogul called this weekend â€˜the happiest in memory.â€™
Iâ€™m wondering if that means he may have had better ones that he canâ€™t quite remember?
Either way, people reacted with utter shock yesterday as news of the engagement began lapping ashore worldwide. It all began with a Tweet sent by the old man himself:
â€œYes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. A very merry Christmas to all.”
The obvious take on it is that she is after his cash, but any fool knows that if they ever do actually get married sheâ€™ll likely have to sign a prenuptial agreement. Frankly, if they do wed, she deserves the money just for having the stomach to sleep with him.
Okay, Iâ€™m being too cynical. Maybe she does actually love him. He comes off as a decent guy on television, and it seems like he really cares for Kendra when she visits the mansion on her E! reality show.
Iâ€™m going to go ahead and call it: this will be a long engagement.
