Kendra, Holly come to Hef's defense in dog debate

They may have moved on from their relationship with Playboy's Hugh Hefner, but Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson still have his back.

The two former "Girls Next Door" stars were livid when they heard that Hef's ex-fiancee, Crystal Harris, was trying to take back the Cavalier King Charles spaniel puppy she initially handed over to Hefner after she called off their June wedding.

At the time, Crystal gave Hef the dog because “she thinks he’s happier here," Hefner tweeted June 20. "I appreciate it, because I really missed him."

Now, however, Crystal seems to have changed her mind. Hef explained on Twitter Tuesday, "I told Crystal she could keep the engagement ring and Bentley (a wedding gift) if I could have our puppy. But now she wants all three."

After sharing the news, the Playboy founder's former girlfriend, Kendra, hopped on the phone to give her support on top of sharing her empathy via Twitter.

"I'm sorry u have to go through this. That dog loves u so much," Kendra wrote. "She abandoned him n now she want him back. She's mean mean mean."

Holly went straight to Crystal herself, asking her via Twitter, "Why did you voluntarily give the dog to Hef (who loves him too) after u left, only to ask for him back a few months later?" And later, "Dogs shouldn't be yanked from homes on a whim...People should do what's best for the dog!"

Hef added to People magazine that he's hopeful he and Crystal will work this doggie custody situation out.

"We both love the puppy," he said. "I told her if she wants to keep the ring and the Bentley, then maybe I can keep the puppy. I [hope] we will work it out."

  3. Save the dog...

    If Hef keeps the pup it'll save it from going through the tortures of being dyed purple, a bouffant hair-do, and fake rhinestone collar. Where is PETA when they're really needed?

    None of those women look like the girl next door to me. Unfortunately, Hagerstown, MD has been voted to have the ugliest people in the country. Wish they'd move here...fake as they are...still would be a massive improvement.

    She already auctioned off the ring (for about half it's worth.) I bet if Hef offered a trade of the dog for the Bentley, she would say no, and I'm sure that Bentley will be sold within a month and she'll still want the dog.
    And another thing – a message to all three of you girls; your 15 minutes have expired! Stop doing things like this just to keep your name in the "news". You're all gorgeous, and I have every nude picture ever published of you on my computer. So unless you're gonna take it off and put the pictures in Playboy (and eventually online and my computer) please keep to yourself and shut up.

    OK, so they are fighting over a "Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Puppy", a so-called "purebred" dog. So "purebred" dogs are being purposely bred while other unwanted "mutt" dogs in dog shelters are being euthanized? This is an abomination. I, for one, am getting tired of the so-called "beautiful people", the 1%ers, with their oh-so-sophisticated tastes.

    I hope Hef will not give her his dog, go to court if necessary, but don't let her have his dog. A dog isn't a thing, it has feelings and should be with the one who cares the most for it, and that is Hefner.

    "I told Crystal she could keep the engagement ring and Bentley (a wedding gift) if I could have our puppy. But now she wants all three."

    Now that's a gold-digger if there ever was one. And to think I had assumed these hot young blondes want to be with Hefner because of witty humor and charm.

    I confess myself somewhat baffled by Kendra Wilkinson's continued entanglement in Hefner's affairs.Unless something has/is gone/going awry in your marriage,why does whatever drama is going on with Hefner continue to be of concern to you? What's lacking in your life with Hank and the kids? Frankly from my perspective it just seems as though you are overly involved the goings-on of someone who is supposed to be out of your life;someone who's not even an ex-husband!!My advice:tend to your own business.After all,other than being known as one of Hefner's many castoffs,what other connection do you have to him? Move on!!!

      You can break up with someone because you know you're not suited for a long-term relationship and still be fond of them! It doesn't mean that Kendra is unsatisfied in her marriage or doesn't care for her husband and little boy. To the contrary, I think it shows that she actually had feelings for Hef that went beyond the superficial – I give her credit for being a more mature person than I thought. BTW, the new ex should definitely give Hef the dog!

      Hey man... I get it. I have an ex I have been epic platonic friends with for over a decade. We are way better at being friends than we were ever at being a couple. Neither one of us could imagine a world in which we aren't friends. We talk about everything, help each other out whenever we can, and when I need a "man's perspective", guess who I go to? He tells me like it is too... no sugar coating it... just the facts; even if the facts are a punch in the face. It doesn't mean I am lacking in my relationship either... it means that I really value the great people I have met over the years. Why? Because killer friends are hard to come by. My man understands it (granted, it was a bit hard to explain in the beginning)... because they became friends too. Sometimes, my man talks more to my friend than I do!

      It isn't about moving on either. Yeah, it didn't work out... so what? Just because you are no longer with someone doesn't mean that they should be "out of your life". Unless of course it ends badly and/or they need to be. But if they are truly good people, does it have to be that way? It doesn't really. Sometimes, there are people you meet that are keepers. Regardless of your past, if you are adult enough, you can build a really great friendship.
