When Crystal Harris broke off her engagement from Hugh Hefner, there wasn't just a wedding to cancel. There was a bit of a publishing mess to clean up, too.
Months ago, when all was still well and good in the May-September romance, it was decided that Crystal Harris would be on the cover of the July issue of Playboy as Mrs. Crystal Hefner, to coincide with the hoopla surrounding the couple's wedding. Since it is too late to stop the presses, what is a skin peddler to do?
Hef, who is always on the cutting edge of communication technology, teased the announcement on Twitter yesterday.
"Recent events call for a special sticker on the July cover," he wrote. "Look for it on newsstands."
Let it never be said that Hugh Hefner doesn't have a sense of humor. Instead of yanking the issue altogether or suffering its obsolescence in silence, Hef just slapped a big ol' sticker on the front making fun of his own sad situation.
What does the sticker say? "Runaway bride in this issue!"
Lots of LOLs!
And by the way, despite the fact that Crystal Harris explained the breakup to Ryan Seacrest yesterday, Hef says he still has no idea what happened.
"Crystal did an interview with Ryan Seacrest this morning to explain everything, but I still don't have a clue," he tweeted.
"I didn't see any of this coming, but I'm glad things went wrong before the marriage instead of after. Live & learn."
Don't worry, Holly Madison has already swooped in to take care of him.
