RT @NicoPerrino: I had a good chat this morning w/ Christie Hefner, who is founder and chairman of the Hugh M. Hefner First Amendment Award…
The third member of ‘The Girls Next Door’ has broken her silence on the feud between Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson.
As Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson continue their feud, the third former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner and their ‘Girls Next Door’ co-star Bridget Marquardt has finally weighed in. Appearing on ‘Hollywood Today Live’, Bridget gave her opinion on the ongoing battle between her former housemates, but she’s not picking sides.
Bridget Marquardt has weighed in on Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson’s feud.
"It's kind of sad. Like I feel like we have a bond, the three of us. It's kind of like, it's not like a sisterhood, it's not like friends, I mean it is friends, but it's something totally different than any other relationship you could possibly imagine," she said.
Hugh Hefner is said to be ready to sell the iconic mansion, but will continue to live on the estate.
The Playboy Mansion is reportedly set to go up for sale, with a $200 million asking price. According to TMZ, the mansion will go up for sale within the next month, but experts are saying that the hefty asking price is unrealistic and the real sales figure is likely to be less than half that amount.
Hugh Hefner is said to be putting the Playboy Mansion up for sale.
TMZ reports that Playboy Enterprises, the company which owns the estate, are looking for somewhere north of $200 million. But real estate sources with knowledge of the area have told the website that the owners are ‘dreaming’ when it comes to the asking price.
Jenny McCarthy celebrated Halloween by dressing as Miley Cyrus' tongue!
Miley Cyrus has inspired more than one celebrity costume this Halloween. On Saturday (26th October) Hugh Hefner and his wife Crystal dressed as Robin Thicke and Cyrus at the MTV VMA's whilst Paris Hilton attended the same Playboy party dressed in Cyrus' VMAs teddy. The Cyrus - and Playboy- theme was continued by former Playmate Jenny McCarthy. The 40-year-old dressed as Cyrus' tongue!
Jenny McCarthy dressed as Miley Cyrus' tongue for Halloween this year.
For anyone who has missed Cyrus' favourite pose, it includes the 20-year-old sticking her tongue out as far as possible. McCarthy's costume consists of a large mouth surrounding, complete with a set of teeth and a large pink tongue which surrounds her head and ends around the middle of her thigh. The costume is brilliant but probably not the most practical.

The heiress wore Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry outfits to celebrate the spooky holiday.
It's tough enough settling on one Halloween costume idea for most people, let alone affording multiple outfits for different parties but this is apparently what heiress Paris Hilton has chosen to do, starting with a Miley Cyrus ensemble at Hugh Hefner's legendary Halloween Playboy Mansion party.
Paris Rocked Up In Miley Cyrus' Infamous VMAs Bear Leotard.
Though Paris, 32, is known to relish donning outrageous and revealing costumes each year, it looks like she's outdone herself in 2013 with a reported $5,000 spent on Halloween gear which will also include a custom-made jungle outfit like the one worn by Katy Perry in her 'Roar' music video, according to The Daily Mail.

Hugh and Crystal Hefner celebrated Halloween on Saturday (26th October) by dressing as Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus at the VMAs. Paris Hilton also showed up dressed in an outfit inspired by Cyrus' grey teddy.
Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke inadvertently created a horror story three months before Halloween. Their performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in August has inspired the costumes of Hugh Hefner and his wife Crystal Harris at the Playboy Mansion's Halloween party on Saturday 26th October.
Paris Hilton's costume was inspired by Miley Cyrus' outfit at the MTV VMAs.
Hefner posted two photographs on his Twitter: one a selfie of the couple with Crystal holding a giant foam hand up to the camera; and the other with Crystal bending over in front of her husband. Hefner added the hash tag "twerking". Crystal, despite being a former 'Playmate' and glamour model, dressed more modestly than Cyrus had at the VMAs. She wore a short yellow dress as opposed to Cyrus' decision at the awards in August to wear a flesh coloured bikini. Hefner wore a striped suit with Thicke style sunglasses. It appears the costume was actually a prison outfit which Hefner had adapted with sunglasses, a gold chain and a microphone.
Happy Halloween season! Let the Miley/Robin impersonations begin.
Every year around Halloween, there are ten or so pop culture costumes you just can’t avoid – this year we’re likely to see a lot of Daenerys Targaryens, the poorly thought out Amanda Bynes getup here and there, and of course the inevitable scantily clad playboy bunnies in various colors.
Hefner and Thicke do have a lot in common.
Speaking of bunnies, the original playboy himself, Hugh Hefner, didn’t miss out on the fancy dress action this year. Although he could have been a bit more creative - Hef went for the other trending topic this year – the 87-year-old Playboy boss and his current ladylove, Crystal Harris, decided to dress up as latex-clad Miley Cyrus and stripy Robin Thicke.
Moss has agreed to strip off completely for the world-famous magazine, only days before she turns forty
Kate Moss turns 40 soon, and so to celebrate that she is doing something that few other 40-year-old women would consider; stripping down to her birthday suit for a front cover shoot for Playboy magazine. The iconic model has agreed to bare all for the magazine's 60th Anniversary edition, which will hit shelves in December.
Kate usually gets paid thousands to put clothes on
The British supermodel reaches the landmark birthday on January 16, just before her nude body is printed and published across the world for the celebratory issue of Playboy. Moss, who regularly commands seven-figure sums for her modelling duties, was confirmed as the cover model for the diamond anniversary edition of the magazine on Tuesday, by magazine founder Hugh Hefner himself. He told the Los Angeles Times, "She's a worldwide celebrity and iconic and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagry to upscale modelling."

The first trailer for 'Lovelace' gives the first look at a hugely talented cast.
The first trailer for Rob Epstein and Jeffrey's Friedman's biopic of 1970's adult movie star Linda Lovelace has rolled out online. Lovelace, stars Les Miserables actress Amanda Seyfried in the lead role, with the excellent Peter Sarsgaard playing her sleazy and abusive husband Chuck Traynor.

Though the movie is set in the nostalgic era of sideburns, flower dresses, flares and sexual exploration, 'Lovelace' is a grimy film about the 'Deep Throat' star who became a battered, broken woman at the hands of a monster of a man.
Raquel Pomplun has been named this year's Playmate of the Year, winning $100,000 and a Jaguar lease.
Raquel Pomplun, a biochemistry major and classically trained ballerina, is Playboy's Playmate of the Year for 2013. Hugh Hefner's pick for the iconic honor shot a pretty steamy photo-shoot for the new issue, though insists she was under the weather. "Honestly, I'm thinking I'm so grateful that they look OK because I had a fever in these pictures," the 25-year-old model said.
"I can't begin to describe how excited I am to receive this honor and be given the opportunity to represent Playboy as its first Mexican-American Playmate of the Year," Pomplun said in a statement. "Playboy has taught me a side of myself I didn't know before. It's been a year of wonderful surprises!" The model first appeared in the iconic magazine as the April 2012 cover girl, posing alongside R&B star Bruno Mars for the Sex and Music issue.

There was only really ever one woman for Hugh Hefner, despite his many years surrounded by beauties at the Playboy mansion. The magazine mogul was left devastated this week following the death of his long-time secretary Mary O'Connor. The Playboy founder, 86, announced the sad news of O'Connor's passing on Twitter, saying, "Mary passed away today. We loved her more than words can say."
The two worked closely for over 40 years, with O'Connor even making appearances on his hit E! show The Girls Next Door. "Hef and everyone at the mansion are taking this really hard," an insider tells US Weekly magazine. Though the cause of the death is unknown, O'Connor was known to have been in poor health. Hefner recently tweeted, "Crystal [Harris] is going to visit Mary O'Connor, who is not doing very well. Mary has our prayers. We all love her." Hefner married Harris on New Years' Eve, though had it not been for O'Connor, the couple would likely have stayed apart following the breakdown of their engagement in June 2011. "It's Mary O'Connor that brought Crystal Harris back," Hefner explained on Twitter last June. "Crystal was miserable & said so. Mary told Crystal to write and tell me, which she did."
Kendra Wilkinson, one of the most famous Playboy bunnies of recent times, tweeted, "RIP Mary O'Connor. She was an amazing person who helped me through so much." Mary's husband 'Captain Bob' passed away around nine months ago.

The Playboy Mansion house mother and secretary to Hugh Hefner, Mary O'Connor has died at the age of 86.
Mary appeared on both Kendra and The Girls Next Door, two reality shows about the lives of some of the Playboy Bunnies. One episode of The Girls Next Door was even named after her, 'There's Something About Mary O'Connor' which saw the girls, Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt, and Kendra Wilkinson, visit her home.
On Sunday (27th Jan) Hugh tweeted: Crystal is going to visit Mary O'Conner, who is not doing very well. Mary has our prayers. We all love her.

Andrew Marr, the 50-year-old BBC presenter and incredibly keen runner, is recovering in hospital after suffering a stroke. The typical stroke patient is often thought of as being elderly, potentially overweight and a smoker - so what stopped the blood from running to Marr's brain correctly?
As the BBC reports, anyone of any age can suffer from a stroke, with 150,000 people in the UK having a stroke each year - a quarter of them are under 65. Risky lifestyle choices increase the chances of a stroke, including smoking, "carrying too much weight around the belly" and being too fond of alcohol. In his high pressure working environment, it is possible that a sudden peak in blood pressure could have caused Marr's stroke, though this has not be confirmed. There is also mixed evidence around the impact of drinking a lot of coffee as well as irregular heartbeats and blood pools in the heart.
The BBC presenter is by no means the only high profile individual to suffer a stroke at an early age. The actress Sharon Stone was 44 when she was hospitalised, while Samantha Morton was even younger at 31. Legendary tennis player Rod Laver was 59 when he suffered a stroke, while Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner was in his late fifties. Dr Clare Walton from the Stroke Association said, "I would say that it is a common misconception that this is a condition of just the elderly. A quarter of strokes are in working-age people and children and babies also have strokes."
The charming founder of glamour empire Playboy Enterprises has married for the third time at the grand age of 86 to one of his 26-year-old Playmates. They held the lavish wedding at his infamous Playboy Mansion, where he recently acquired a license to have the ceremony, on New Year's Eve (December 31st 2012) after professing the wish to enter the New Year as a newly married man. The couple were only recently reconciled having previously been engaged between December 2010 and June 2011, however Harris was thought to have had 'a change of heart' according to Hefner's Twitter profile only 5 days before they were due to wed on June 18th 2011. She reportedly announced the split on her website with a post that read: 'I have decided to end my engagement with Hef. I have the utmost respect for Hef and wish him the best going forward. I hope the media will give each of us the privacy we deserve during this time.' Nonetheless, in spite of her fickleness, the modelling mogul agreed to take her back late last year.
Hefner has been married twice before; first to Mildred Williams in 1949 which lasted ten years before the partnership broke up due to her confessions of infidelity, and second to Playmate Kimberley Conrad in 1989 which lasted eleven years.
That randy old prune’s gone and done it again: Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner has gone and got married for the third time, which to be fair is far fewer times than we’d expected. The owner of the most famous adult magazine in the world is making up for lost time after tying the knot with Crystal Harris; it was she who originally had cold feet over their first planned wedding day back in June 2011, only for the pair to reconcile afterwards.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Hefner and Harris married on December 31, 2012, with brother Keith Hefner on hand as best man. Hefner broke the news himself on Twitter, posting a picture of himself in a tuxedo with his bride under an arch of pink and white flowers at the ceremony, which took place at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills, California. Captioning the picture, Hefner wrote "Crystal & I married on New Year's Eve in the Mansion with Keith as my Best Man. Love that girl!"
The new Mrs Hugh Hefner was also in Twitter action on New Year’s Eve, writing "Today is the day I become Mrs Hugh Hefner. Feeling very happy, lucky, and blessed." Lovely stuff. The marriage follows Hefner’s first, to Mildred Williams in 1949 (they divorced in 1959) and former Playmate of the Year Kimberley Conard in 1989 (divorced 2010). Oh, and the age difference between Hefner and Harris? A mere 60 years…
Hugh Hefner will be attempting to walk Crystal Harris up the aisle, for the second time on New Year’s Day. You may remember, we reported back in the summer of 2011 that Harris jilted her Playboy lover and called off the wedding that they had planned. Then came reports of Crystal selling off her pricey engagement ring and various reports of Hugh galavanting around with various other women (well, he IS Hugh Hefner – that bit surely was to be expected).
Over the summer of 2012, though, the couple seemed to be patching up their differences and Crystal was reported to have moved back to the Playboy mansion with Hefner. After tweeting a message recently that read “Dear past, thank you for all the lessons. Dear future, I'm ready” and now, E! Online have confirmed the news that Hugh and Crystal plan to marry on New Year’s Day.
So, it looks as though 26 year old Crystal has decided to give things with 86 year old Hugh another go. According to TMZ, Crystal feels that the time they spent apart has given her a stronger sense of independence and the ability to stand on her own two feet. The former runaway bride posted a picture on of a ring on Twitter on Saturday (December 1, 2012) but alas, it was not “that kind of ring.” So we’ll have to wait to catch a glimpse of her new sparkler, then, it seems?
The pair, who are separated by a sizeable 60 years, are set to walk down the aisle at the Playboy Mansion on New Year's Eve, gossip site TMZ claims. The two were set to marry last year (June 2011), but Harris bailed just five days before the big day. The pair seem deadly serious about things this time around, but we'll see whether either of the two have changed their mind by the time Christmas has past.
TMZ said that sources close to the Playboy Mansion have spoken to them, revealing that the pair have never been better together. Things really started to improve, the sources claim, when Harris moved back into the Playboy Mansion earlier this year, with the two reigniting their love shortly after, culminating in the latest effort to try and get married again. Sources claim that Harris needed the time apart so she could attempt to find her own two feet and develop some independence, something she apparently feels she has achieved.

Former Playboy bunny Anna Nicole Smith has died aged 39.
Ms Smith was found to be unresponsive in her hotel room in Florida overnight at and was pronounced dead just one hour later in hospital.
The blonde bombshell, born Vickie Lynn Hogan, was once called the "next Marilyn Monroe" for her voluptuous figure and styling herself on the troubled actress for the cover of Playboy magazine.
The actress and model rose to notoriety after her marriage to billionaire J. Howard Marshall in 1994 when she was 26 and the oil giant was aged 89. Mr Marshall died just over one year later and began a legal battle for Ms Smith for a portion of his fortune which ended in 2006.
On 10th September last year Ms Smith's 20-year-old son from her first marriage, Daniel, died just three days after giving birth to her daughter Dannielynn in the Bahamas.
It is believed that a post-mortem examination will be carried out today to determine the cause of death.
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has expressed his sadness at the news of Ms Smith's death saying: "I am very saddened to learn about Anna Nicole's passing. She was a dear friend who meant a great deal to the Playboy family and to me personally."
