Hugh Hefner & Crystal Harris Are Engaged To Be Married . . . Again

Second Time's the Charm?

Ruh-ro … here we go again. Remember back in June of 2011 when Playboy playmate Crystal Harris left Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner at the altar when she broke off their engagement just days before their wedding was to take place? You may recall that things got kinda nasty in the following days … Harris went on the record to say that she ended things with Hef because he was terrible at sex. The couple remained estranged until February of this year when they met up at a Playboy Mansion party and, apparently, had a change of heart. In June we learned that the couple were a couple again and just this October, they celebrated Hallowe’en together as happy as can be. Today we learn that Hef has asked Crys to marry him … again. She has said yes … again. Let’s see if the pair can make it to the altar, say their I Dos and seal the deal this time. More »
