They say that the third time’s the charm and lets hope it’s that way for Hugh Hefner. He’s reportedly engaged to former fiance Crystal Harris again and these two are set to tie the knot on New Year’s Eve 2012. This is the same dazzling beauty he almost married in June 2011, before she got cold feet five days before the wedding. Crystal, 26, claims she is ready now more than ever. Since reuniting with her 86 year old beloved, the couple have seemed blissfully happy together.
This marriage will be the first for the Playboy Playmate (December 2009). This British glamour model originally met the famous Playboy mogul on Halloween 2008 while attending a party at the Playboy Mansion. In addition to her title as Playmate, she was also featured as “Co-Ed of the Week” for the week of October 30, 2008 under the name “Crystal Carter.” This will be Mr. Hefner’s third marriage.
Despite speculation about whether or not the runaway bride will make it down the aisle this time around, those closest to the couple are wishing them all the best, as are all of us here at Playboy Blog!

Have you checked out the new Playboy magazine yet? You might want to! To celebrate the premiere of NBC’s highly-anticipated new series The Playboy Club, which aired on September 19, 2011, Playboy turned back the clock with a 1961-themed October issue (on newsstands Friday, September 16). The issue features The Playboy Club’s Laura Benanti on the cover, a pictorial with the original Playboy Club Bunnies from the 1960s, imagery from the famed Clubs, and a 1961 newsstand price – just 60 cents.
Newsstand copies of this collector’s edition will retail for just 60 cents, the same price Playboy sold for in 1961 (The Playboy Club on NBC is set in 1961). The special issue will also take readers back in time with retro features, including a 10-page pictorial with original Playboy Bunnies from the 1960s and a “Welcome to the Club” special advertising section sponsored by Seagram’s 7 Crown. The six-page insider’s guide includes an exclusive look at the original Playboy Clubs and Bunnies and offers readers the chance to win a trip for two to Las Vegas to celebrate New Year’s Eve at the Playboy Club at the Palms Casino Resort via the “Lucky 7 Las Vegas Sweepstakes.”
“This issue is a love letter to vintage Playboy,” Editorial director Jimmy Jellinek said, “At the same time, we’re also being relentlessly modern.”

A big congratulations to Claire Sinclair, just crowned 2011′s Playboy Playmate of the Year! Today was the big celebration at Moon in Vegas, where Miss May 2010 Kassie Lyn Logsdon kept everyone up to date with photos on Twitter. Claire looks stunning in her bling bling swimsuit as she enjoys the Ditch Friday pool party, and we enjoy her juicy cleavage!
Hef expressed how happy he was that Claire Sinclair, Miss October 2010, the spokesmodel for Bettie Page and a two-time guest star in Crazy Horse Paris at MGM Grand, was selected. “Definitely the right choice! Wait till everybody sees her pictorial. It’s a classic — for the ages. We re-created all the famous pinups through the years, and she captured them perfectly.
Few Playmates can pull off the classic pinup look as well as Claire. But in these stunning photos that pay tribute to glamour royalty, pull it off she does—all of it—with a coy smile and tempting curves. “I’m all about vintage, so I loved the idea,” the 20-year-old Claire says. “I mean, getting to swing 10 feet in the air to replicate a 1950s pinup?
