Hugh Hefner and runaway bride patch things up
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Hugh Hefner and Playmate Crystal Harris, his former fiance, have patched things up in no time flat.
Harris has apologized for saying this week on shock jock Howard Stern's radio show that sex with the 85 year-old Playboy founder lasted "like about two seconds," and that she never saw him naked.
"The Stern interview scared me, he's harsh," Harris, 25, said in a Twitter post on Thursday evening. "I was unprepared and blurted out things I shouldn't have said, I'm sorry."
The magazine mogul, who had previously accused Harris of lying about their relationship, welcomed his former lover's mea culpa in his own tweet that followed shortly about hers.
"Crystal apologized for her Howard Stern interview, which I appreciated," Hefner tweeted. "It didn't have much to do with reality."
Harris was Playboy magazine's Miss December 2009 and was engaged to Hefner a year later, but left him and the Playboy mansion five days before their planned wedding on June 18 of this year.
Hefner, who has cycled through a number of women in recent years, has since moved on to live-in girlfriends Anna Sophia Berglund and Shera Bechard, who also have appeared in his magazine.
