Hugh Hefner Re-Engaged to ‘Runaway Bride’ Crystal Harris

Hugh Hefner Crystal HarrisStay in school, kids. If you do, you may just may be treated to a guest lecture by a great academic such as Hugh Hefner. And if you’re really lucky, he may just give you a scoop on his personal life. According to E! News, Hefner stopped by the University of Southern California on Tuesday not to recruit new, innocent, unsuspecting coeds for his Bunny brothel, but to pontificate about pornography, or something. While lecturing at USC’s Censorship in Cinema class, Hef announced that he and his current girlfriend/former fiancée were headed to the courthouse after school.

Heather Ritchie, a USC senior present during Hefner’s announcement, tells E! that Hefner began his talk by saying, “Today is a special day for us because after class, we are going to the courthouse to get our marriage license.” After breaking their engagement in June 2011, Hefner, 86, and Harris, 26, picked up the pieces of their shattered relationship and decided to give it the old college try in June of this year (when Harris announced on Twitter, “Yes I am his #1 girl again”). 

According to TMZ, Hefner and Harris hope to have a New Year’s wedding ceremony.

Okay, you are now free to wash your eyes or flashy thing your brain (MIB-style) or do whatever needs to be done to erase the image of Hef and Harris doing — ugh, I can’t even say it — from your minds.

Hugh Hefner Reunites with Runaway Bride

Crystal Harris Apologizes To Hugh Hefner

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
