After she broke his still-beating heart, we’re sure Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has had some choice words for his ex-fiance Crystal Harris, who recently called off their nuptials. But his go-to phrase for the 25-year-old Playmate as of late has been, simply, “Runaway Bride.”
Hef not only plastered a “Runaway Bride” sticker on the July issue of Playboy that Harris graces the cover of, but now he’s centering an entire special around it for Lifetime. (All of this is already infinitely more entertaining than the Julia Roberts/Richard Gere comedy of the same name.) The 85-year-old magazine honcho/boat captain tweeted on Wednesday, “The marriage special planned for Lifetime TV is now going to have a ‘runaway bride’ theme & will air in July.”
So now the revamped special — which was originally set to air on July 13 and show their blessed event — will reportedly chronicle the aftermath of Hefner’s bride-to-be breaking off their impending wedding. (Lifetime could not be reached to confirm the news.)
Hef also tweeted that his exes Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison were on hand during filming to lend “emotional support,” so it’s a safe assumption the former Girls Next Door stars will make an appearance in the special. But, we’re mostly looking forward to the part when “All By Myself” plays in the background until a wistful Hef quickly realizes there are roughly 37 other girls on the Playboy compound that look just like Harris and then watches 60 Minutes and takes a nap.
