Hugh Hefner - Harris Didn't Like The Idea Of Becoming Mrs. Hugh Hefner
Hugh Hefner's ex-fiancee has revealed she ended her engagement with the Playboy boss because she didn't feel right becoming his wife.
Playmate Crystal Harris, who ironically graces the cover of the new Playboy magazine, was scheduled to exchange vows with Hefner on Saturday (18Jun11), but instead called off the nuptials on Tuesday (14Jun11) and has since parted ways with the publisher.
In an interview with Los Angeles DJ Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday morning (15Jun11), Harris said, "I called it off because I didn't think it was the right thing for me to do... For a while I've been having second thoughts about everything. I haven't really been at peace with myself lately. I didn't think it was really fair to him."
And she didn't like the fact that her nuptials would be a media circus: "They were gonna air a (TV) show on it. It was all happening too fast for me. I just thought about it and (thought), 'Was this what I wanted?'"
Harris admits her ex was very understanding: "We both agreed that it wasn't the best idea to get married. He was doing it for me because he thought it was what I wanted... I just feel that I owed it to Hef and everyone there to do the right thing and move on."
The model insists Hefner is "doing great" and they plan to stay good friends: "I feel happy and at peace that everything will be OK, and I respect him more than anything, and we're still going to be really close."
Harris now has to make sure relatives who had already booked flights to Los Angeles for the wedding don't have a wasted trip: "I have about 15 relatives flying in from London so I have to find something for them to do."
Meanwhile, the blonde insists Hefner will now never marry again - even though she knows of someone keen to become his wife.
She adds, "He was just doing this wedding for me."
