Hefner Goes Down Swinging! Ouch
Hugh Hefner is a math problem I will never solve. He is seemingly older than Wrigley Field and tends to date women who were born around the opening of Camden Yards. The guy wears his pajamas and a cap that belonged to the Skipper from Giligan’s Island every minute of the day, and yet he is somehow looked at as an eligible bachelor.
Now, I know there are millions of reasons to fall in love with Hef—literally millions—but it still baffles me. I think the man should take a page from a Major League player like Mike Schmidt; when you can’t play the game at the level you once did, it’s time to hang up the spikes and walk away gracefully. Mr. Hefner has not taken that road.
I, like many, found a chuckle or two in the Girls Next Door show when it first aired. I thought it was a bit creepy at the same time, but Kendra made me laugh and I always found Holly Madison’s love for The Playboy founder intriguing. I just didn’t get it. She actually saw a future with the guy! He isn’t Benjamin Button, Ms. Madison!
Well, maybe the recent news of Hef’s latest fiance’ calling off the upcoming wedding will push the life-long ladies man into retirement…I hope anyway.
Hugh’s bride-to-be, model Crystal Harris, has had a change of heart and decided not to marry her magazine mogul beau. Yea, that’s about right. What was it? Could it have been the endless reruns of The People’s Court and having to eat dinner at 4:30? Or maybe Ms. Harris realized that her boyfriend and grandfather could have played on the same high school baseball team and Hefner would have been a senior when her Poppa was a sophomore.
Sorry, Hef, better luck next time…and we all know there will be a next time!
