An Inside Look at Hugh Hefner's Marriage to Crystal

A six decade age difference between newlyweds never fails to raise a great deal of curiosity.  Such was the case recently when Hugh Hefner, 86, exchanged wedding vows with his new bride Crystal Harris, 26.

The nuptials took place during a small ceremony at the Playboy Mansion on New Year's Eve and we can't help but wonder about her motives... money, fame, love?

She got cold feet a year ago, a situation that earned her "Runaway Bride" status.  During her hiatus she trashed Hef in a radio interview with Howard Stern, claiming she had never seen him with his clothes off.

During a recent appearance on HuffPost Live, Crystal refused to talk about their sex life but she did provide some clues about what goes on behind closed doors at the mansion.

Crystal admits, "I feel like since Hef is older now and he's had the phases of all the girlfriends and all that kind of stuff, I feel now is more, you know, like cuddling up and watching a movie or playing backgammon.  We play UNO with the girls."

She has some regrets, "When I first left, I did some interviews I shouldn't have done. I was mad. It was a breakup, and I shouldn't have done some of the things.  At the time I had a bad publicist, so things did get switched and turned around."

Crystal didn't marry Hef for his money.  In fact she claims she isn't mentioned in his will. "For me marriage means more security knowing that with Hef, I'm the one for him.  There have always been girls in and out, so there is always the feeling of maybe being replaced. It was an on-edge feeling all the time. So he made sure that I didn't feel that way anymore and that's what the wedding was all about."

Hmm, very interesting.
