It was clear that there was certain things expected of you. It was clear that there was a definite routine going on, and it was very bizarre. It definitely wasn’t what I expected it to be, it was a lot scarier. I was offered prescription drugs.”

It looks like these two love-birds are back at it again. At 86 years-young, Hugh Hefner is engaged again to Crystal Harris. To make it official, the couple took to Twitter to announce the news.  Playboy’s founder tweeted, “I’ve given Crystal Harris a ring. I love the girl.” Soon after, the 26 year-old fiancée posted pictures of her ring, calling it “my beautiful ring.” With all these announcements going around, what wasn’t mentioned at all was a wedding date. However, sources reveal to People the wedding will be on New Year’s Eve at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, which was the same wedding plan after their first engagement. In 2011, Harris called off the wedding days before the big day. Then, both Harris and Hefner bad mouthed each other; Harris calling Hefner a two-second man and Hefner stating he “missed a bullet” when the wedding was called off. Hopefully, these two can leave 2011 in the past.

Mending Hugh Hefner’s Broken Heart

Cupid's Pulse Article: Mending Hugh Hefner’s Broken Heart

By Ronnie Ann Ryan MBA, CCC  — The Dating Coach

Less than a week after  fiancée Crystal Harris called off her nuptials to Hugh Hefner, the scorned husband-to-be rebounded by publicly showcasing his new girlfriend— Shera Bechard, the November 2011 Playboy Playmate.  To me, that’s the definition of a true playboy, and it suits Hef perfectly. After all, he is the original founder of the Playboy brand.

When questioned by fans and hecklers about moving on so quickly, Hugh claimed that Shera is the remedy for his broken heart.  As a professional dating coach, one thing I know for sure is that the heart takes time to heal.  If Hefner was truly crushed by Harris leaving him, then he’s certainly in no position to have already moved on.  Whether you’re a man or a woman, a new love interest is not the antidote for heartbreak.  Finding someone else so quickly is not a healing strategy; it’s simply a rebound. In my opinion, the chances of things going well for Shera and Hugh are quite slim at best.

According to People, Hugh Hefner is experiencing no hard feelings over Crystal Harris’ decision to call off their wedding. In an interview on ET, he announced that by not marrying his ex-fiance, he “missed a bullet.” The Playboy mogul declared that he’s better off single.  Reportedly, Harris dropped the bomb on him right before the wedding, not having given Hefner any clues to her change of heart. “I didn’t see any of this coming… If you’re having reservations about the person you’ve been with for two-and-a-half years, the logical thing is to sit down and talk about it,” said Hef.

Lessons To Learn from Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris

Posted In: Guest Posts, Love, Relationship Advice Articles
Cupid's Pulse Article: Lessons To Learn from Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris

By Single City Guy

As we all know, Hugh Hefner has gone through another breakup.  His ex-fiancée, Crystral Harris, dumped Hugh days before their wedding.  Hugh had his reaction to the situation, causing everyone to laugh and then sympathize.  For a man who started an empire based on beautiful women, it’s hard to believe he still hasn’t found “the one.”  In honor of the Hef, here are three lessons we can learn from the now-ended relationship:

Don’t Give Up Everything Unless It’s Worth It

Crystal Harris came into the light after the reign of Hef’s ex-girlfriends Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wikinson, the original Girls Next Door.  This also comes after Holly and Hugh’s relationship (a whole other drama-filled story, which we won’t get into).  Originally, Crystal wasn’t alone, as she filled the role of the head girl, paired with twin sisters.  Eventually, Hef gave up the twins to focus all of his attention on Crystal.  While giving up extra girlfriends isn’t exactly what I’d call noble, Hugh was willing to give up a part of his lifestyle to please the one he loved.  Everyone has done this at some point in their lives.  We’ve given up something we’re used to in order to appease another.

Before making sacrifices, here are two questions you should ask yourself: 1) Is he or she worth it? and  2) What is he or she giving up?

It looks like Hugh Hefner isn’t too heartbroken after his ex-fiancé Crystal Harris called off their marriage.  It’s either that or he’s a pretty good actor. The 85-year-old Playboy mogul stepped onto the red carpet at The Karma Foundation’s Kandyland Party at the Playboy Mansion this past Saturday with Miss January 2011 playmate Ann Sophia Berglund.  Along with his new girlfriend — who is also Crystal Harris’s best friend — he partied the night away with celebrities, playmates and other party-goers.

Hefner’s ex-bride-to-be said one of the major issues in their relationship was his love for other women.  “It doesn’t make sense to have so many women around but still have a marriage,” Harris said, according to People. “It doesn’t make sense, so it was the right thing.  I wasn’t the only woman in Hef’s life and it wasn’t going to stay that way after the marriage.”

If Hugh Hefner is still hurting from his breakup with fiancee Crystal Harris, he sure isn’t showing it.  People reports that a week after the split, the 85-year-old Playboy founder has already moved onto a new bunny: Anna Sophia Berglund.  Hefner tweeted, “With Crystal gone, Anna is my best girl… Anna is really one in a million.”  When asked if the new couple is official, Hefner’s ex, Crystal Harris, tweeted, “Nope!  She’s just over there regulating, making sure Hef ends up w a good girl.”
