Hugh Hefner: I missed a bullet

Looks like hindsight really is 20/20.

It's been a bit of time now since perpetual playboy Hugh Hefner was jilted by his much younger fiancee, Crystal Harris, and now he says he "missed a bullet" with the scrapped nuptials.

Hef told "Entertainment Tonight" that he is "doing very, very well under the circumstances."

"As Holly [Madison, his ex-girlfriend] observed, she suggested that I missed a bullet, and I think it's probably true," he said.

Hefner, who is as well known for his bevy of decades younger girlfriends as he is for founding Playboy magazine, said he was marrying  "to give her that sense of security."

As for reports that another man might have been involved, Hef said, "In retrospect there is something to all of this that we don't know that will come to light in time."

So will 85-year-old Hefner, who has been married twice before, consider taking another trip down the aisle with anyone else? Don't bet your sweet bunny tail on it.

"Quite frankly, I don't know what I was really thinking," he said. "I think my natural state is single. I've tried marriage twice, not successfully. These were not the happiest time of my life."

Tune in: Hefner’s ex-fiance Crystal Harris will be on The Joy Behar Show to tell her side of the story on Monday, July 25.

    Hef needs to use his head........not that one, the one between his shoulders. He's nothing but a dirty old man with lots of money. If he wasn't rich he'd be nothing but a nasty old character like Aqualung.

    TIME FOR TRUTH!! Hef's legal team asked Crystal to sign a pre-nup that removed her as the heir to the Playboy mansion, the magazine and most of Hef's fortune. SHE BAILED!!!

    Hef is senile unfortunately and the goods don't get up anymore, but he still craves companionship of pretty women and they are willing to be his friend. Its not that big of a deal and there are worse things going on in the world. Let the old guy enjoy himself.

    It is so incredibly sad that this old man doesn't realise that if it weren't for his fame and fortune, NONE of these young girls would want a thing to do with him. He really doesn't realise how pathetic his life is when it comes to someone who loves and cares for him. He's nothing more than a stepping stone for young "wanna be famous and rich" girls. So, so sad!

    I used to admire 'Hef' for having that Dino-Sinatra, Mad Men era classic cool. Unfortunately those days are long gone and Mr. Hefner looks like a silly pair of leathery grey bagpipes, gallivanting around with embryos. His actions truly beg the question, "is it better to burn out or fade away?" Even Larry Flynt is cooler (and richer) than Hefner, and he drives a wheelchair and poops in sack. Don't fear the reaper you Geritol popping, Depends wearing, Ben-Gay smelling old coot!

    I wonder due to his status and wealth does he have the means to keep them quiet, you know all that nagging and complaining about everything under the sun. He probably has several bedrooms, send the little wife to bed and then he can sleep in a separate bedroom with access to the bunny nest. What happens when the current Mrs Hefner gets old, does he go check out the current bunny hutches for a new one?

      So, what sins has Mr. Hefner commiiited? Did he become too wealthy for your tastes? If that's a sin, then you'd better pray fervently for the likes of Rupert Murdoch and the corrupt politicians who are destroying this country. Please don't pray for him. He's a rational humanist who outgrew the need for religion decades ago.

    The only "bullet" elderly Hefner missed was the one from his own gun. Hugh – GROW UP. You had a great run. Now fade out with some dignity. Dating and "falling in love" with twenty-something Gold Diggers is pathetic. You look pathetic. Marrying a twenty-something-year old leads us to believe you are suffering from Dementia. Grow up baby. You're mortal. Your time is nearly up. Act like a man and handle it every one else. Write an auto-biography or something. Pass the business torch. Keep busy. But, please, stop thinking young tail thinks you're attractive and loveable. You're not dude. You're getting played. Wake up... reflect on your amazing life and smile. Just do it with some grace and dignity.

    To me, Hefner is nothing but a dirty old man. Unable or unwilling to date women of his own age he picks young girls young enough to be his grand-daughter. Why any young woman would even consider getting involved with a man like Hefner boggles my mind. Only thing I can think of is money, certainly not for his looks or personality. I heard Hugh Hefner's ego is only second to the size of Mt. Rushmore but it must be even worse to look at oneself in the mirror and really believe you are God's gift to women or should I say young girls.

    This is going to sound odd, but I really pity Hef. I don't think he'll ever experience what it's like to grow old with some that's really in love with him. Most of the women in his life are in love with his lifestyle, and probably don't even know what the real Hef is like. Where some people see a rich life, I see a lonely isolated life.

    Good self-evaluation Mr. Hefner. I cannot be critical. I learned a similar lesson. This shows me that life is an ongoing evolving process, and that life is not over until it is over.

    Having worked at Playboy for over 16 years, it is safe to say this entire runaway bride business was a well scripted pre-planned PR event derived to help distract from the state of the brand. (Keep in mind, all this run-around is a great lead up to the debut of ABC's new t.v drama, 'The Playboy Club'). There was no pre-nup, but I bet my bunny ears there certainly was a contract with Crystal to play along. Did you know that all of Hef's "girlfriends" are contractually obligated to have blonde hair for as long as their contract is valid, even if no longer playing the role of girlfriend? Amazing, huh?

      @ Eirca – "Women will be ruling the world next buddy." LMAO!!!! LMAO!!! LMAO!!!

      Thank You! I needed a good laugh this morning. Just a few questions to confirm your theory...

      Please answer these "Yes" or "No".

      Do you shave your legs, arms and/or privates?
      Do you spend + $25 on make-up each month?
      Do you wear high heels even if they hurt your feet?
      Have you learned to sew and cook?
      Ever heard of the Glass Ceiling?

      If you answered "Yes" to 3 or more of these questions, you are a woman who is imprisoned by the oppinions of men. Is that someone who will be ruling soon or even someone who you would want to rule?

      Face it. Until women do these things PURELY for themselves the truth is they are doing it for men.

    Of course his "natural state" is single! What else can it be, living with "a bevy" of young women, which would've continued after the wedding! Frankly, I think he was just looking for something to do after his "girls next door" moved out, whether from boredom or PR reasons! Crystal Harris was most likely promoting her "career" as a singer. I keep telling Hef, to shock the world by hooking up with me, a Brunette who's Over 40! That might be too much for him though, might send him over the edge, altogether! But it would be "different"!

      Vumba is right. I'm 44 (but I look 35) and hooked up with a 42 year old woman (5'7, 115lbs, brunette) last weekend (I just got divorced and it's been ages since I had any. Anyhow, like Vumba said, it was awesome because she knew what to do, there was no worry of unwanted pregnancy, and when it was over she texted me saying, "That was fun...we should do that again sometime". No clingly 20 year old to worry about...there are A LOT of smoking hot 40+ women out there (several in my gym). When you're 20, 40 sounds old, but when you're in your 40's, you'll realize that's when the fun begins. Now if you'll excuse, I need to go send a txt message. 🙂

      I'm 42. I've had older, I've had much younger. As far as I have seen, the enjoyment I (and the woman as well) get out of any tryst is more based on how much effort I am willing to put into it than the woman's age, experience, skill, or body parts. Most men seem to hump, dump, and go to sleep thinking they had a good time, but it's a lot more enjoyable if the guy works at it. A young woman with little experience is easy to teach, so this talk about older being better frankly is overrated.

      What kind of woman wants to sleep with an 85 year old man? When she's in her 20's. Oh, that's 'right, a money hungry one. He was NEVER good looking. He has become a joke to the world. Infantile men may look up to him, but to most people, Hugh is a joke. I'm not saying you have to go sit on the porch when you turn 70 or 80 or whatever, but come on, he acts like he's 20 and he's NOT. He needs to grow up. And if he had a brain, he'd see that a normal 20 year old would not be interested in him. So he should know that if she IS, then something's off. And she's not really interested in HIM. Just his money.
