Hugh Hefner, 86, is re-engaged to his ‘runaway bride’ Crystal Harris, 26

Hugh Hefner wants soup. He wants a nice blankie and a nap. He wants to watch the Weather Channel all day. He also wants to get married. Sure. According to TMZ and other sources, Hugh Hefner is officially back with his ex-fiancée Crystal Harris (the one who dumped him just days before their 2011 wedding), and they’re planning to get married. Again. When Hugh and Crystal were together for the first time, it seemed sketchy enough – more like a very old man who wasn’t really aware of his surroundings, but just wanted to make his young golddigger happy. But that fantasy blew up with Crystal dumped him before the 2011 wedding, and many sources claimed she had been fooling around on Hef with Dr. Phil’s son, Jordan McGraw. Crystal and Jordan seemed to still be “on” following the broken engagement to Hef, but then Crystal went back to Hef at some point. And now their wedding is back on…?

Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner is engaged (again) to Crystal Harris (again) and the two will walk down the aisle at the Playboy Mansion on New Year’s Eve (oooh, that’s new!) … TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, Harris bailed on wedding #1 in June 2011 … just five days before the big day.

But according to our sources, Harris and Hef are better than ever these days, since Harris moved back into the Playboy Mansion earlier this year. We’re told the couple have worked out all their previous problems and decided recently they want to try and get married again.

According to our sources, Harris feels the time she spent apart from Hef really taught her how to be independent and stand on her own two feet … something she felt she needed.

Our sources say the wedding will be an intimate gathering with just close friends and family. Clothing optional.

Poor Hef. I actually do feel bad for him, you know. He’s 86 years old and he just wants his soup. If I was Christie Hefner (Hugh’s oldest child), I would be getting the lawyers involved in this mess. Crystal Harris just seems like such user and a golddigger. I don’t even know… maybe I should have sympathy for her too, but it just feels like elder abuse.

    Everytime I see a headline that starts with Hugh’s name I expect it to say he’s dead

  2. Joanna says:

    I hate that color blond hair. the color, combined with the extensions, just makes her look cheap. and the black eyebrows? do she really think it looks good? one thing for sure, hugh loves blondes. the trashier the better, apparently.

    • Vee says:

      Joanna- she IS cheap. She is a paid prostitute.
      And Hugh a sick old man.

    • Jean says:

      Ewwww..that’s like f…..g your grandpa unless he falls asleep before it can happen. I think she sold her first engagement ring from him so he will have to get her another. She must have run out of money so she’s back. I agree..elder abuse.

      • Jen says:

        I didn’t know posing nude = prostitute?

        Although I don’t agree with her lifestyle, I wouldn’t call her a whore.

  3. Vee says:

    Gross and sad.

  4. Eleonor says:

    I can’t feel bad for Hef at this point. He has spent his life putting on a circus made of girls and a lot of downgrading sex, in exchange of a little bit of fame. The only thing I can say is that if he had married Holly (who has always been my favourite Hef girl) nothing of this would have never happened.

    • Flora Kitty says:

      I used to watch the Girls Next Door, when it was Holly, Bridget, and Kendra. It seemed that Holly did genuinely care about his well being. I never watched it after they left.

  5. Ms Kay says:

    Funny how she was talking shit about how Hef grossed her out.

    “According to our sources, Harris feels the time she spent apart from Hef really taught her how to be independent and stand on her own two feet… something she felt she needed.”

    —> Translation : her bank account shrunk, bills were piling up and she’d rather lay by the pool than standing on her two feet, so like any respectable gold digger she realized she’s made a huge $$$ mistake so she ran back into Hef wrinkly arms and kneeled before his wrinkly sausage… And the wedding is back on..

    Now another problem: the prenup…

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      With pre-nup you mean testament?

      • Ms Kay says:

        She needs to get pass that stage first so she’ll have to cast a spell and transform into 3 blonde bimbos triplets to convince him to rewrite the prenup papers stipulating he’ll pay her before any sexual intercourse, he’ll pay her for a kiss on the cheek, he’ll pay her to go shopping on her own.

        Then if she succeed during the marriage she will ask him to pat his school fees and will go on taking pharmaceutical classes or so… The testament plan is on!

  6. Summer says:

    This story is painfully gross.

  7. crtb says:

    Nothing like an old fool with money!

  8. epiphany says:

    If you want me to believe this trick is only 26, I need to see the birth certificate, and not the online ala Obama version, I mean the actual hard copy, ’cause I ain’t buyin’ it.

    • bluhare says:

      What the hell does Obama’s BC have to do with this? Give it a rest. It’s almost as old and feeble as Hefner.

    • someone says:

      Lol I’m not sure where you’re getting at here.. are u still questioning Obama’s birth certificate? I mean REALLY

    • pink giraffe says:

      I laughed, epiphany! You’re right, some people do need to grow a thicker skin. And one thing I can say for Obama, he is able to laugh at himself; what was it, the W.H. correspondents dinner where he made fun of his middle name? People need to have a sense of humor.

    • Amy says:

      It was a good joke :)

  9. Dragonlady Sakura says:

    Aw, true love prevails! Ha! More like I don’t like paying my own bills and having to work. Hmm, I better hop on that old guys peen and ride it out until he croaks. True love stuff.

  10. Kimbob says:

    Hahahahahaha…..whew! Um, I remember right after this trick ditched Hef, she was “caught” in a pawn shop, trying to hock the engagement ring Hef gave her. A reporter saw it, & recorded it on video, I think….or…maybe just photgraphs. I’m thinking it was TMZ.

    Anyway, the reporter asked her about the engagement & “what happened.” Crystal mumbled something about it all being “a publicity stunt,” & that it “wasn’t real.”

    Elder abuse? I don’t think so. It’s called karma. For years Hef made millions upon millions off the naked spreads of these women. It’s “karma” now because the host has become the parasitic feeder, & the parasite has become the host.

    That old man is a deluded FOOL now, that’s all. Let him have his delusions…he’s paying for them all w/his own $$$.

    That last pic where he’s kissing(?) her…he looks like a camel….LMAO!

  11. Tuxedo Cat says:

    I feel sorry for Dr.Phil and Robin, having had to put up with this hosebag at family functions….Wow, to have been a fly on the wall at the McGraw home….

  12. Izzy says:

    So, this will end well, I’m sure.

  13. Zorbitor says:

    If that’s elder abuse sign me up

  14. bns says:

    I’m not against marriage, but what is the point of marrying at his age and with his wealth? I know she’s just after his money, but it’s sad on his part.

    • Calimero says:

      That’s why I’m against mariage, I’m sure that if the marriage was not possible and these men and women couldn’t have money after the separation (or death) this kind of situation would be extremely rare and we could deduct it is a real couple with reals feelings.

    • bettyrose says:

      Maybe he’s old fashioned at heart. I mean, sure we’ve heard stories of viagra fueled sex orgies on carpets the dogs have soiled, but his real dream is just to enjoy the sanctity of marriage one last time.

  15. Christina says:

    Transparent publicity stunt.

    The ‘Playboy’ empire has suffered greatly from the ubiquity of (often free) internet porn. So ‘Hef’ has to think up some way to keep himself in the headlines.

    As for this chick, she doesn’t look too bad for 40. Oh wait, she’s…. how old?

  16. lizbet says:

    Here’s what I don’t get (and I don’t follow the Playboy house so please enlighten me if there’s an obvious answer).

    Why her? It isn’t like he hasn’t had golddiggers after his money before, and even women who seemed to truly care for him (Holly, I think?) after that ring. He has been a bachelor for decades, so why her? What is it about her that made him willing to finally go down the aisle again?

    It just doesn’t make sense. If he wanted to get married, he would have done it years ago, and not to some skank who can’t even pretend for a photo that his leathery skin doesn’t remind her of her own mortality.

  17. Jeanie.amour says:

    Is it just me or does she look rode hard and hung up wet for a 26 year old…if I were to guess, I’d say mre like 41. I’m nearly 29 and she looks at least 15 years older than me.

    • Christina says:

      No, it’s not just you. I’m 43 and swear she looks older than me. And she’s not even attractive. Now, I know Hef is vile, but with his money you would think he could do a bit better.

      • Jeanie.amour says:

        I just noticed, in the fourth picture from the top, where Hef is kissing his ‘fiancee’ he looks like he is having a stroke on her cheek. It is really just sad. I hope they’re happy though at least! lol

  18. KellyinSeattle says:

    Check out her body language; please don’t get near or touch me!

    • bettyrose says:

      Even a shameless gold digger must just want to shower after touching him. The guy’s reputation doesn’t exactly scream good hygiene, you know?

      • Cam S says:

        Didn’t she go on Howard Stern and say she was never attracted to Hefner and basically said they have only made love once? That behavior is unforgivable and plain mean. She is a bad egg. She can’t even pretend like a good gold digger

  19. Annie says:

    Amazing what wealth does to you. He looks good for an 86 y/o. So does The Queen. My poor grandma was in horrible shape by that age and she was middle class. Couldn’t walk, couldn’t see.

  20. Sugarrbunny says:

    When she left Hef the 1st time she went on the Howard Stern show & started swinging. How Hef grossed her out, they only had sex once & she walked away in the middle of it & how she was basically held hostage in the mansion.

    She is trash but I don’t feel bad for Hef if this is what he seeks out. For years he has paid barely legal girls $1K a week to be his girlfriends how is it these girls didn’t pay taxes on what amounted to a 52K yearly salary? (I admit to reading Bunny Tails by a former girlfriend, which is how I found out Bridget from GND was married while being Hef’s GF)

    Clearly the illusion he can “still get” hot young women. (No way this chick is in her 20s) is all that matters to this old coot. Publicity stunt, probably

    Hope the pre-nup is airtight & she isn’t in the will. Money really isn’t everything. I only feel somewhat sad for Holly but I feel she is much better off away from this madness

  21. Green_Eyes says:

    I feel like I need a shower…gross! Even his teeth are nasty..w/ his money they could look better ( still would be gross marrying one young enough to be your great granddaughter!

  22. carrie says:

    i don’t worry for him:he has a clever pre-nup and a vasectomy
    He has divorced one month after 18th birthday of his younger kid not to pay his ex-wife

  23. Mandy says:

    I understand the “get money b!tch” scheme here, but I could never do something like this. I would just always feel like I was making out with my Pepaw.

  24. kw says:

    holla we want prenup. we want prenup. Thats somethin that you need to have, cuz when she leave yo ass she gon leave with half

    now, i ain’t sayin she a goldigger

  25. andy says:

    What a great love story!! Running off to watch Pride and Prejudice……

  26. Ginger says:

    Blechhhh! I need to cover myself in anti bacterial soap after just reading about this…so gross!

  27. Stuart Horsely says:

    There are no words.

  28. Mira says:

    “Harris feels the time she spent apart from Hef really taught her how to be independent and stand on her own two feet.” LMAO!!

  29. LouLou says:

    They deserve each other. I think we should openly call it what it is though: prostitution.

  30. rose says:

    Some where Holly is crying. She tried so many time to put that ring on it

    • Jayna says:

      Holly is happily pregnant and has done well for herself with her little Las Vegas show and her own TV reality show. I think she’s fine.

  31. lkaye says:

    I saw this woman with Dr. Phil’s son at Bloomingdales awhile back. She just looks like a total skank.

  32. Jayna says:

    What a don’t get is there’s a million blonde bimbo goldfiggers willing to marry him. Why take back and want to actually marry this one who humiliated him and only came back because her career aspirations ha-ha failed and after being dumped by Dr. Phil’s son no younger rich guys were on the horizon, so back to Hugh.

    • deehunny says:

      yea, I understand what you mean, but things that used to disgust/surprise me no longer does.

      She does it for: 1) a free place to live; 2) free plastic surgery; 3) free publicity; 4) ALL AROUND FAMEWH-RE EXPOSURE. She also gets paid.

      As I’m making the list, there are others, both famous and not, that also fit the bill (minus the free plastic surgery for the plebs of course.) Plenty of women and men that do this.

  33. NerdMomma says:

    Elder abuse my butt. He’s been exploiting women his entire adult life, and I’m sure he’s in control now.

  34. Eener says:

    Check out her body language in the first and last photo. She’s not physically touching him. If she was really in love she’d be pressed all over him. Put some effort into your performance woman!

  35. Fue McCormick says:

    I’m tired of being politically correct; therefore, I will say that I find this relationship rather disgusting. As a woman who shares an office with a 72 yr old man and his 36 yr old wife … it’s kind of gross to me. I’m sure Hef’s girlfriend parties after he goes to bed at 7:00pm and she probably has a good contract that only requires a kiss in public and probably no sex … but still … it’s gross …

  36. Simply Red says:

    They can have each other!!
    Maybe she scared to press against so she doesn’t break him..

    He looks brittle, how could she have sex with him?? Oh the thought send me shivers

  37. Merritt says:

    I have no sympathy for Hefner. He is gross. I don’t buy the whole, he is too old to know what he is doing line. This is basically what he has done is whole life.

  38. fabgrrl says:

    Gross. And yet this is perfectly legal and acceptable, while my really cool, smart, hard-working co-worker can’t marry her long-time, age-appropriate, equally awesome girlfriend. Fair.

  39. Starlight says:

    How about adopting her as his granddaughterr instead of marrying her. That would be more appropriate.

  40. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    He, his “industry” and the women who flock to him and are prepared to demean themselves for “fame and fortune” make me sick.
