Hugh Hefner had tormented his last ” number one girl” Holly Madison for seven long years, pretending to make a committment and then flaking out at the last minute.
Finally, she had enough and left him to star in a Las Vegas revue and began ” dating’ magician Kriss Angel,
Everyone suspected this was a publicity stunt and that Holly never really wanted to leave the Playboy mansion.
Hugh Hefner supported her publicly but seemed to strike back on a personal level.
Perhaps Hefner felt she pointed to his old age and impending demise by leaving him to date a much younger man.
So Hefner seems to have struck another blow to Holly Madison by suddenly divorcing his last wife and proposing to his newest and much younger chick, Crystal Harris
Is this Hugh’s way of saying that Holly was not good enough to be his wife? Or is this a man scorned and full of his own ego? A man trying to fight off the grim reaper with another grasp at a new life?
Or just a ploy to sell more magazines? You decide.
I am wagering he never marries this young woman.
Here’s the blog of his engagement from the site e Zap2it:

After finally getting a divorce from his second wife, Kimberly Conrad, who has been living separately from him since 1998, Hugh Hefner popped the question to Crystal Harris, who replaced Holly Madison as his “Number One” girlfriend in 2008.
After watching “The King’s Speech” at the Playboy mansion on Christmas Eve, Hefner proposed. “After the movie tonight, Crystal and I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve. When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
To clear up any confusion, he added, “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.”
Harris, 24, was the December 2009 Playmate of the Month. She grew up in San Diego, and while attending San Diego State University she became Playboy’s Co-Ed of the Week for the week of Oct. 30, 2008.
She began dating Hefner and starring in “The Girls Next Door” in January 2009, along with identical twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon. When the twins left the mansion in January 2010, Harris stuck around as Hefner’s one and only.
