Hugh, 84, and Crystal, 24, both appeared on the Piers MorganTonight show this week, during which they confirmed they will be tying the knot on June 18. In fact, the two are planning to tie the knot at the Playboy mansion.
“It will be intimate with a close number of friends here at the mansion,” Hugh said of the nuptials. “No big blowout affair. Something very personal.”
An insider reveals to UsWeekly that they’ve set the list at less than 300 guests, adding that Crystal is close to making one other important choice: the wedding gown. Crystal, who’s engagement ring is worth $90,000, is reportedly eyeing a strapless dress by designer Romona Keveza.
In a new interview with HDNet’s Naughty But Nice, the 31-year-old Holly World’s star reveals she will not be attending Hugh’s wedding, that is if she’s even invited.
“I feel like the attention should be on them,” said Holly pictured above on Feb. 6. “It shouldn’t be about ex-girlfriends showing up and what are their reactions and stuff like that. I think it should be about them.”
Holly also let it slip that a wedding between Hugh and Crystal might be happening much sooner that we imagined, as in this summer. Holly reveals that if she doesn’t go, “It’s probably because I have a show in Vegas.”
And when it comes to her early January meeting with the two, which was a taped segment for her hit E! show, Holly admits the encounter was “definitely awkward.”
“I don’t really know her,” adds Holly. “I’m just really protective and want to make sure he’s making the right choices.”

Holly Madison is insisting she is not jealous of ex-beau Hugh Hefner’s engagement despite her recent comments to the media, you know, the ones which include statements like Hugh “could do better than Crystal.”
In a new interview with UsWeekly magazine, the 31-year-old Holly’s World star claims she just wants what’s best for Hugh. “I think everyone expected me to feel one way, they expected me to be really jealous,” said Holly of Hugh’s engagement to Crystal Harris, 24. “But it’s not how I feel. We’ve been apart for two years. I just want him to be happy.”
Holly adds, “I’m more protective than anything else. I just wanted to make sure he’s making the right choice.” It also helps that Holly is currently happy with her new beau of five months, All Time Low guitarist Jack Barakat. “He’s totally cool — really down-to-earth,” she said of Jack.
In other Holly news, she posed in some new bikini photos on Tuesday just weeks after being told she needed to lose weight for her Las Vegas burlesque Peepshow. The occasion? She was being photographed for new ads for SVEDKA Vodka’s specialty HOT_BOT cocktail.
Those bikini photos are below! The obviously badly scripted Holly’s World airs Sunday nights at 10.30/9.30c on the E! network.

In a new interview with Life & Style magazine, Holly, 31, pretty much slams Hef’s new fiance, 24-year-old Crystal Harris. According to Holly, Hef can “do better than Crystal,” and she even goes on to warn Hef to reconsider his decision.
“I’d like to see Hef settle down,” Holly tells Life & Style. “I just want it to be with the right person, and I feel like he’s making a hasty decision. I’m not sure Crystal is the best thing for him.”
But it didn’t end there. “Crystal hasn’t been around very long — she’s a mysterious character,” says Holly. “No one knows much about her. Plus, she’s very young, probably too young to settle down. I’ve seen a lot of girls try to date Hef, and some have ulterior motives. I don’t think it would be a bad idea for him to get to know her a little better. I think it’s possible Crystal could break Hef’s heart. They could end up divorcing, and she could take half his money.”
Holly goes on to add that she just wants Hef to be happy when it’s all said and done. “I’m not jealous that he’d marry someone else. I just don’t want it to be a girl who’s using him to start her career,” she adds. “Basically, I think he could do better than Crystal.”
The 31-year-old Holly’s World star is refreshingly surprisingly honest about her feelings on the engagement between Hugh, 84, and Crystal Harris, 24, making it clear she wasn’t exactly thrilled to hear the news.
“I’m very surprised,” Holly told E!. “I have a lot of different feelings on it. I don’t just feel one way. I kind of didn’t want to put a generic statement out there like ‘Congratulations!’ because I felt everyone would see through that.”
If you recall, Holly ended her 7 year romance with Hugh back in October 2008 after he refused to commit to marrying her or having children with her. The E! article states Hef found out he was unable to have more kids because of a low sperm count though Hef has never publicly stated or admitted this.
We will also get to see more of Holly’s feelings about Hugh and Crystal’s engagement as she recently paid them a visit at the Playboy mansion while the cameras rolled of course, capturing it all for her E! reality show.
“I’d describe it as awkward,” she told UsWeekly Wednesday about the face to face meeting. “I just wanted to get my feelings out about the engagement and I wanted to talk to him first. It’s definitely awkward to feel like you’re confronting someone I’m glad I did it. I wanted to be fair and tell him first.”
The new season of Holly’s World premieres on E! Jan. 23. And finally, just for kicks – below are some before plastic surgery photos of both Crystal and Holly.

Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner had a jolly ol Christmas this year by becoming engaged to his Playmate girlfriend Crystal Harris!
Hugh, 84, took to his twitter page over the weekend to announce his engagement to the E! network’s Girls Next Doorstar. Crystal is only 24-years-old (despite looking like she could easily pass for her mid-thirties) and 60 years Hugh’s junior.
“After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve,” Hugh tweeted. “When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.”
To further clarify things, Hugh added, “Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. I didn’t mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all.”
This will make the third marriage for Hugh. In 2009, he filed for divorce from his second wife, former Playmate Kimberly Conrad, after the two separated in 1998 (they have two sons together – Marston, 20, and Cooper, 19). Hugh was also previously married to Mildred Williams; their marriage ended in divorce in 1959. Hugh and Mildred have two grown children – Christie, 58, and David, 55.
Here’s to hoping former Playmate and Girls Next Door star Holly Madison, 31, who dated Hugh for 7 years and publicly stated on numerous occasions that she hoped to marry him and have his babies, only to have to end the relationship because Hugh told her he never wanted to get married or have children again, is being kept away from all sharp objects on this beautiful Monday morning.

It’s that time of the year again folks! You know, that time when certain reality stars/celebs decide to reveal some dirty and sordid TMI information about their past in other to sell some books.
This time around, it’s Kendra Wilkinson’s turn. The 25-year-old former Playboy Playmate, who’s sex tape was just released this year, is dishing it all in her new biography – Sliding into Home.
Kendra, who stars on the E! reality show Kendra, doesn’t leave out a single detail about her past life, as she discusses losing her virginity at 13, her drug overdose at 16, her stripper past, and having orgies in the Playboy mansion with Hugh Hefner.
On having sex at thirteen: “Lying on his back, Samuel took a condom out of his pocket and slipped his pants off. I don’t know where he got that condom, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it had spent a year or two in his pocket. I climbed on top of him, but we had no idea what we were doing. I just knew that once I started bleeding I was no longer a virgin, so I watched and waited and, after a minute or so, there was blood.”
On Drug Overdose at Sixteen: “I was bleeding from every hole in my body, and I really thought I was going to die that night,” she said. “But you know what, I survived, and I swear it was a couple of days after that that I had an epiphany. I just stopped drugs, stopped smoking cigarettes, stopped everything, and went home.”
On the CRAZY orgies at the Playboy Mansion: “Eventually everyone got out of the tub and climbed onto Hef’s bed, where he was lying on his back waiting. There were about seven other girls with me, and we were all naked. Someone handed me some body gel, but I had no idea what I was supposed to do with it, so I set it aside on the bed. Holly got things started by getting Hef going, um, orally. Meanwhile, some of the other girls were slapping ass, getting all kinky, and yelling out all sorts of crazy things. I was scared — these girls were strangers to me. I just sat on the edge of the bed and watched. I wanted to be left alone and only do what I had to do. One by one, each girl hopped on Hef and had sex with him. By this point my mom’s voice was no longer in my head, thank goodness, I was just focused on what was going on in front of me. Each girl rode Hef for about a minute or so and then hopped off and did her own thing — some fooled around with the other girls, while others just sort of sat to the side and watched. I studied their every move. Then it was my turn. I had been taking notes in my head, so I knew about a minute was all I needed to put in. Counting the time in my head, I had sex with Hef for the first time. At about the minute mark, I pulled away and it was done. It was like a job. Clock in, clock out. Or in this case, cock in, cock out.”
On Stripping and Doing Drugs In a New Interview – “I wasn’t a druggie stripper. I was a very good person doing it. [But] I was kind of still embarrassed about it,” Kendra clarifies. “I always knew that it was wrong. [But] the drugs and everything, that’s what found me and accepted me,” she says, explaining that her behavior came from a painful place when she had to cope with her father leaving the family.
In other news, a new Life&Style magazine cover story accuses Kendra’s husband, Hank Baskett, of betraying Kendra by partying with some strippers. The story also implies Hank might have cheated on Kendra by getting some “extras” from the strippers.
According to the mag, upon learning of the existence of his wife‘s sex tape(s), Hank visited at least two strip clubs — once while his wife was eight months pregnant.
An acquaintance of Hank’s, Carl Miller, tells Life & Style he accompanied Hank to Rick’s Cabaret in Houston on Nov. 28 and then to the King of Diamonds Gentleman’s Club in Miami in early February. “Hank went to the private VIP room with two girls,” Carl tells Life & Style. “Everyone knows what goes on in those rooms — I don’t need to spell out what happened.”
“Hank loves strippers and strip clubs,” says Carl Miller. “And he doesn’t see anything wrong with it.”
Kendra is however defending her hubby. When asked of the stripper/cheating story by TMZ, Kendra states they are all “lies.”
After spending some odd number of years dating 84-year-old Hugh Hefner, it seems Holly Madison now wants some normalcy in her life.
The E! reality star, currently starring on Holly’s World, and former Playboy Playmate is now all about moving forward with her new life in Las Vegas. Holly, 30, voices her wish for a future that’s more normal than what she had while living in the Playboy mansion as one of Hugh’s girlfriends.
“I want more of a traditional family,” said Holly, who also revealed she bought a home in Las Vegas. And does Holly already have a man in mind for her traditional family?
According to RadarOnline, that answer is yes! As Holly was spotted out on a date with UFC fighter Josh Koscheck. “It was just the two of them and they were really cute together,” an eyewitness tells Radar.
“They were nestled alone at their table, they were cozying up together.” And it seems this isn’t the first time the two have crossed paths. Josh, 32, is said to have been in attendance for a viewing party for Holly’s reality show last Sunday.
Holly’s World airs Sundays on E! The show is surprisingly better that one would imagine, all thanks to Holly’s interesting friends/co-stars.
