Third time’s a charm, right? Twice married Hugh Hefner is planning to walk down the isle again to wed his fiance, Crystal Harris. This will be the second engagement for the couple. The Girls Next Door‘s sugar daddy is 60 years older than his fiance; she’s 26, and he’s 86. It seems that the “Runaway Bride” that graced Playboy‘s cover in July 2011 has endured a change of heart, and is now ready to settle down with Hugh. Rumor has it that the wedding will take place on New Years Eve at the mansion in front of close family and friends.
Back in June 2011, the couple were planning to get married, but Crystal had some game changing issues that surfaced, leading her to call off the wedding just 5 days before the nuptuals were to take place. When asked about her cold feet, Crystal said in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, ”For a while, I’d been having second thoughts about everything, so I haven’t really been at peace with myself lately. It was all just happening too fast for me. I just sat back and thought about it all.” the Playboy bunny continued, “Is this what I wanted? And it wasn’t.” Crystal also admitted that Hugh and her were both having doubts about the marriage. “I actually spoke to Hef about it before I left and we both came to the decision that getting married wasn’t the best for either of us.”She also went on the Howard Stern show, and admitted that sex with Hugh Hefner lasted “like two seconds.” While The Hef didn’t respond to those allegations completely, he did speak out on the relationship, saying, “I don’t know what I was thinking about” and that remaining single was his “natural state.”
Crystal packed her bags and left the mansion, but not for long. She moved right back in earlier this year, and the couple have been working on their relationship. Sources close to Crystal stated that she needed some time on her own to think and mature before settling down with anyone, let alone Hugh Heffner.
When the issue of intimacy came up in another recent interview, Crystal said that sex wasn’t really a top priority in the relationship. “There was couch cuddling, movie nights. Hef’s like a big kid.” When the subject of sex came up, Crystal said that they were intimate, but not often, admitting “In the beginning, but after a while it just wasn’t the most important thing to him.”
