Hugh Hefner Opens Up About Crystal Harris Split: 'I Didn't See It Coming'

Hugh Hefner, Crystal HarrisHugh Hefner made headlines when his fiancee Crystal Harris left him days before they were to be married. Now, the Playboy honcho has opened up to Piers Morgan about just how blindsided he was when Harris pulled the runaway bride act.

"I think the real problems began a couple of months before the wedding," the Daily Mail quotes Hefner as saying. "We went to London, about five or six weeks before, and things did not seem quite the way they ought to be. She was preparing a song for the first time and I think her focus was on that."

However, weeks later, Hef said things were still not right.

"But in the weeks immediately afterward, as we got very close to the marriage, you know, something was not right," he said. "But I didn't see it coming, I truly didn't see it coming."

Harris and Hefner were filming a reality TV special on Lifetime, which will still air, but with a new title: 'Hef's Runaway Bride' (Tues., July 19, 10PM ET). Harris also graced Playboy covers as "Mrs. Crystal Hefner" the very same week she left him; stickers were placed on the magazine to recognize the split.

The special won't be all about Hef though. Look for Harris to get her chance to tell her side of the story, too -- she is the titular 'Runaway Bride' afterall.

In the video below, Hef is consoled by his former girlfriends Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson after the public split.

Hey she took what she could get and Heff was naive enough to give it to her. Admittedly she paid for it taking on multiples of Heff's studs simultaneously while he watched. But then so do all of Heff's girls, it's part of the price of entry to the mansion. A friend of mine used to work the bar there and told me how it works. Actually I don't blame her for splitting before the studs did it to her.

Playboy, He is the Play Boy. Kind of crappy life when it boils down to chaising your could be grand kids.With so many sucker fish out there ... Its all kind of sad. Probably has an army of people telling him what to say. I am sure if I was that old any attention is good. Money cant buy happiness but piece of mind. Well he is a legend.. People are loveable at what ever age. I am sure he has supported the breat enhassement field

Age really does not matter sometimes, but maybe this girl was a little too young. Brains wise she does not have any. Hef is used to young girls, he just cannot relate to someone his own age, and that is too bad because there are some really beautiful,, and nice older woman, out there, who are willing to be with him, and make him happy, and not just for the $. He won't even consider it. so he ends up with these young brainless ******, who do not care for him, or love him, and just stay there for what ever they can squeeze out of him. Too bad he cannot see this. Hef is not a bad person, just makes the wrong decisions when it comes to women. Hef, go back with Holly! GIGI

Hef has the support of Holly, Kendra. He did not need to try to marry Crystal, He made a huge mistake. He should have married Holly, she really loved him, and i know he loved her. Crystal, was just a stop over, who just happened to be there when things did not work out with Holly. Of course she left, she was an oppurtunist, and just using him, for what he could give her, and do for her. I never liked her anyway. I thought Holly, was perfect for Hef. Hope they make up someday.
