Did Crystal Harris leave Hugh Hefner for Dr. Phil’s son? Not according to Crystal, whose rep was quick to say that Crystal and Jordan McGraw are just friends. Michael Blakey told People magazine that the rumors are “absolutely not true. This is pure fabrication. There is no relationship, nor has there ever been one. This is a stupid rumor.”
Michael insists that the only relationship between the two is a working one, saying, “They wrote a song together and that was the extent of their relationship.”
Even Holly Madison leant her support via twitter, tweeting, “U r too sweet. Wish I was there to support, too!”
Hef himself has been prolific with his tweets since the breakup, letting his fans know he’s doing okay. Hef tweeted, “The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage,” and “Bridget Marquardt came by to give me her loving support. Very dear.”
Another jokey tweet from Hef read, “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve scheduled a movie: “Runaway Bride.” Seems appropriate.”
Hef has been receiving family support too. Claire Sinclair is not only the current Playboy Playmate of the Year, but is also the girlfriend of Hef’s son Marston.Claire spoke to E!Online, saying, “I’m not surprised in the least. She seemed very unhappy. It was blatantly obvious to everyone that they didn’t have much in common. …Nobody really understood it. But Hef cared for her and she made him happy, so of course everyone was going to support him.”
Claire goes on to say, “He deserves better. It’s a selfish move to do it so suddenly. She should have been a little more adult about it and decided months ago. To put people through this five days before a wedding, I think it’s horrific. I think he needs to take a break and reevaluate what he wants in life.”
In what could only be explained by an attempt for Heidi Montag to become reacquainted with the general non-Spencer population, Heidi sent out mass tweets today inviting everyone who could see her to twitter to Wet Republic today, Saturday, June 18. Heidi was hosting the event, which also served as a birthday party for her friend, Kevin Casey.
One person who accepted Heidi’s invite was Crystal Harris. Instead of getting married today, she went to Vegas with Heidi. According to TMZ, Heidi called Crystal after hearing about the breakup with Hef. Heidi offered a shoulder to cry on by inviting Crystal to Vegas, the place everyone who calls off their wedding wants to go.
The press was naturally all over Crystal who shared her thoughts on the split from Hugh Hefner. “I’m doing really well,” she says. “It really has been helping that Hef and I are still friends. I’m going to go visit him on Monday. We’re going to split custody of the dogs. [laughs] He has plenty of people around. He’s doing OK, and I have my family and my friends.”
It seems like Crystal became disenchanted with all the women around in the Playboy mansion. “I mean, I love having all the girls around. I love them there. They’re all my best friends, but it doesn’t make sense to have so many women around, but then still have a marriage. It doesn’t make sense, so it was the right thing. I wasn’t the only woman in Hef’s life, and it was going to stay that way after the marriage,” she says. She married the biggest playboy in history. The man created the company, the image, the lifestyle. She expected normalcy?
Hef is picking up where he left off. Crystal says he has some women on the back burner. They are probably vying for a spot on the next roster with dollar signs in their eyes. Of Hef’s prospects, Crystal says, “Ana’s one of my best friends. She’s hanging out at the mansion; she’s hanging out with me. There’s plenty of other girls there. There’s plenty of girls probably moving in right now, [laughs]” she says.
Crystal appears to have had her doubts from the beginning. This is not surprising when a 25 year old gets proposed to by a 100 year old. “When Hef asked me to marry him, it was in front of three video cameras and a photographer. It started then. I was just scared. I didn’t want to disappoint anybody, but I’m glad I made the right decision and did it now and not after,” she continued.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Crystal didn’t plan to leave Hef for her own fame. “I didn’t plan it,” she says. “I didn’t plan it at all. I didn’t know; I didn’t know. I just knew when it was getting close that it wasn’t fair to Hef – it wasn’t fair to go through with it. I just wanted to stay true to myself and just do what was best for everybody.”
Crystal also didn’t breakup with Hef for Dr. Phil’s son, Jordan McGraw who may or may not have been in the photo above. “Jordan’s one of my really good friends. He’s been my friend for a year, he will continue to be my friend, and I really need my friends right now.”
Crystal is still in the process of putting things back together after calling off a wedding that was five days away. She has a meeting with the would be wedding designer. Also, “I have a copy of the invitation. That’s it. I don’t want anything else. I’m giving Hef back the ring, and everything. I just want to move forward.”
In addition to learning all about how Crystal is picking up the pieces, we learned another cool Heidi Montag fact. Not only does she have an incredible wingspan, the girl has flexible phalanges.
Vegas wasn’t completely dominated by the blonde variety of reality stars. The brunettes also made their presence felt with their best specimens, the Kardashians. Kim, Kris Humphries, Lamar Odom, and of courseRob Kardashian, were all on hand at the Sugar Factory to celebrate Khloe’s 27th birthday early. The reality star’s real birthday is June 27th.
No one was nursing a broken heart and a failed engagement, but Kim’s celebrating one. You know she’s still celebrating her engagement to Kris. And at at least one point during this party, it probably became all about Kim.
Not Getting Married? Go to Vegas! Getting Married? Go to Vegas!
