Playboy calls Harris Mrs. Hefner

Playboy made a huge faux pas on their July cover -- you're not going to believe who's on the cover.

Playboy calls Harris Mrs. Hefner

By now, we all know that Crystal Harris called off her wedding to Playboy creator Hugh Hefner. However, you wouldn't know it if you picked up the July issue of Playboy: The magazine "introduces" us to the new Mrs. Hugh Hefner.

All together now: Awkward!

The cover shows the 25-year-old Harris decked out in trademark Hefner gear -- red robe, captain's hat and pipe. She's also holding her dog, Charlie, in the photo.

"Crystal took Charlie with her when she left & I really miss him," Hefner wrote on Twitter yesterday. Well, now he can see him whenever he wants -- on the cover of his magazine with his "bride."

Why didn't the editors behind the magazine keep this embarrassing cover from hitting the streets? Our guess is that copies were published -- and shipped -- way before Harris took off from the Playboy mansion.

Ouch. Way to twist the knife stuck in Hef's back, eh?

It seems like Hefner is starting to feel the anger part of the seven stages of grief. He spent much of Tuesday writing emo Twitter updates. However, later on he retweeted a message from a fan that shows he suspects Harris' motives were career-related all along.

"Omg @CrystalHarris left @hughhefner the day her single came out on iTunes. Coincidence? I think not," the fan tweeted.

Our thoughts exactly.

Do you think Crystal Harris was just in it for the career boost?
