Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris' wedding is back on.
The aspiring singer left the Playboy mogul shocked when she called off their wedding just five days before they were due to marry in June 2011, but they moved back in together last May after Crystal, 26, begged Hugh, 86, for forgiveness and are now said to be planning to get married on New Year's Eve at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, the couple have only invited close friends and family members to celebrate their special day later this month. They are said to have completely resolved the problems which previously led to the model getting "cold feet."
Speaking after she backed out of the wedding last year, Crystal explained she knew it wasn't the right step for her: "I got cold feet. Over time I just realized it wasn't for me, it was all happening so fast. 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."
Kendra Wilkinson has retired from posing nude.
The former The Girls Next Door star and Playboy model will not get naked in her latest reality show, Kendra on Top, because she feels there is "more to life" than posing nude.
"You will see the traditional Kendra antics on my new show, but I have retired a couple things, like Playboy and the nudity. I just figure that there's more to life than getting nude and showing your boobs. I have added a lot of layers to my life and I'm more spontaneous now than I once was, but I don't have to take off my top," she told US Weekly.
The 27-year-old star - who is married to Hank Baskett, with whom she has one son, Hank IV, two - may have moved out of the Playboy mansion in 2008, but she will be reunited with its owner and her ex-boyfriend, Hugh Hefner, on her new show.
Hugh Hefner has reportedly reconciled with his ex-fiancee Crystal Harris.
The aspiring singer left the Playboy mogul shocked when she called off their wedding just days before they were due to marry in June 2011 but after Crystal, 26, begged Hugh, 86, to reconcile he forgave her and allowed her to move back into the sprawling Playboy mansion.
"Crystal begged Hef to let her come back. He surprisingly doesn't have any hard feelings against her, so he let her move back into the mansion. Hef and Crystal are really happy back together," a source said.
Hugh's main girlfriend Shera Berchard - who has been dating the octogenarian since last June - has now reportedly moved out to make way for Crystal. "Shera Berchard, Hef's number one girlfriend, moved out as soon as Crystal moved back in," the source added.
It is unclear if the wedding will be rescheduled but insiders say not to rule it out.
Hugh Hefner's son, Marston, has been sentenced to a 52-week domestic violence program for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.
The 21-year-old eldest son of the Playboy mogul was accused of kicking Playmate Claire Sinclair and punching her in the stomach during at fight at their Pasedena apartment on February 12. He was subsequently charged with inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant and entered a plea of "no contest" in court yesterday.
Marston also stood accused of damaging Claire's laptop during the fight, although that charge was dismissed. According to TMZ.com, the judge ordered him to stay away from Claire - who was pictured moving out of their home just days after the alleged attack. The 20-year-old model quit Playboy while the case was ongoing, and originally said she would drop the charges if Marston apologized publically and sought psychological help.
Marston has previously admitted to having extremely high standards when it comes to women, having grown up in the Playboy Mansion. "My, like, expectancy for what girl I'm going to get is, like, so f*****-up. I've just been around really hot women my entire life, so the average high school girl won't do it for me," he told GQ.
Hugh Hefner had "mixed emotions" about Lindsay Lohan posing for Playboy.
The Mean Girls actress appears on the front cover of this month's edition of the raunchy men's magazine, but its founder admits he wasn't convinced with the idea at first.
"It really came as a surprise to me. I kind of had mixed emotions about it initially, and then it turned into something bigger than life. I wasn't quite sure where she was at in her life, obviously. It depends on whether it's Tuesday or Thursday," Hugh said.
Hugh also revealed how Lindsay, 24, and her family were initially reluctant for her to appear in the spread naked and had to assure them the pictures would be shot in a classy way. The 85-year-old lothario told E! News, "I think it was essentially mama and the folks around her that kept pushing for less nudity. And I said, 'We're doing a nude pictorial here. We're going to do it in a very classy way and we're going to do it in a way in which it will not be forgotten.' I think it was accomplished beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. People will not forget this pictorial."
Due to the leak of Playboy's January/February issue, which features a nude photo spread of cover girl Lindsay Lohan, Hugh Hefner has made the executive decision to release the issue to newsstands earlier than expected.
"Because of the interest & the Internet leak, we're releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early," Hef wrote on his Twitter.
The leak isn't surprising, considering how mysteriously quick the internet manages to find nude celebrity photos. If the internet can find Scarlett Johansson's and Blake Lively's nude cell phone photos, they were sure to find Lindsay's Playboy ones.. Then again, I also wouldn't be surprised if someone at the magazine leaked it themselves!
"The Lindsay Lohan pictorial has been leaked on the Internet & is causing a sensation," Hef posted, believing that it will become "a true Collector's Edition."
No word yet as to how early the release date will be.
