Hugh Hefner on his marriage break-up: "Something was not right, but I didn't see it coming"

Hugh Hefner gave his first interview since Crystal Harris broke up with him before their wedding to Piers Morgan tonight on CNN. So, what happened? "In the weeks immediately afterward as we got very close to the marriage, something was not right, but I didn't see it coming," said Hefner. "Where was my head?"

He also described what Harris took before she left him: a Bentley, the wedding ring...but she brought the dog back to Hef.

    You dirty old man!! Your money has bought you women who wouldn't look at you twice if you were poor. Grow up!!
    You have got to be at least 70, find someboy who likes you, the real you, and youj just might find some real happiness for your last few remaining years, instead of trying to play some game of being what you are NOT............

    Why on earth are you asking Hugh Hefner what he thinks about Casey Anderson and what's wrong about America? He took nude pictures of women! He doesn't have a rational or educated voice on anything. Give me a break Piers, your reporting is fluff, I feel like I'm watching the naked emperor when I watch your show. This is garbage.

    Oh, please!!!!! Hef has been shortchanging his women FOREVER and now he's complaining that HE was jilted??????
    Ask his former wife about his fidelity and commitment to support her. NOT!!! And HE is complaining that another man may be involved????????? By his own admission on your show w/ Crystal he strongly intimated that other women would be involved in his marriage He did himself a great disservice by appearing on your show crying "victim."

      Catherine, I am not sure where you got your information but it's incorrect. Mr. Hefner was 100% faithful to his wife, Kimberley Conrad, throughout their marriage. Conrad cheated and chose to leave the marriage. This is public knowledge and admitted by Conrad. As for him supporting her, he lost his "true love", Holly Madison because of his strong commitment to supporting Conrad. A marriage that he promised to stay in, in name only, and provide financial support until their sons finished college. Conrad lived in a "twin" mansion next door to the Playboy Mansion until recently. There was no failure to commit or failure of support. What you wrote is simply a lie.
      Crystal Harris had multiple affairs during their relationship. She also knew from the start that other women would be involved and she chose to accept those terms. Harris released her music single the day before the breakup, her "Mrs. Hefner" issue of Playboy was on it's way to stores and everything was paid for. Anyone can see the motivation behind her leaving the man 5 days before the marriage. The day the marriage was to have taken place, she hosted a pool party in Vegas. This woman was no victim. She is a gold digger and a user. She knew the score.

    What bothered me in thier first show when the girl was saying how much she I I'm love him and all that crap! Are F$&@ing kidding me?? Her eyes were lying and it was clear she was lying. Why would hot young beautiful girl be in lobe with some old grandpa who drolls when he talks with out noticing. Plus why I that old far don't get it? They lobe his MONEY and most likely are just grossed by even kissing him on the cheek let alone other stuff. Enough said. Grow up old grand pa sattele down already your time has long been gone to run around with 20 year old girls!

      Dave, While I agree that it was painfully obvious during the last show that Harris was full of BS, there are many, many women who truly would love a relationship with Hefner. Age aside, he is a brilliant, kind and loving man. Yes he has an unusual lifestyle, but it's not like that's news to anyone. I don't think for a second that the great majority of these girls are there to get what they can. However, there is a reason why all of his exes speak so highly of him and stay in contact. He is is a gentleman in every sense of the word.

    Piers Morgan: SPEAKING ABOUT PIER'S COMMENTS ON THE CHINESE: WHY WE DON'T LIKE THEM, IS HATE TOO STRONG A WORD? IS BECAUSE THEY KILL BY BEATING TO DEATH TEN THOUSAND CATS AND DOGS A DAY FOR THEIR WEIRD TASTE IN FOOD. TRUCKS GO AROUND ROUNDING UP CATS AND DOGS, MANY OF WHICH ARE PETS AND THEY ARE TAKEN TO COMPOUNDS, BEATEN TO DEATH AND TAKEN TO RESTAURANTS. THE CHINESE ALSO EAT BEAR PARTS, AND TIGER PARTS. ALL THIS IS TRUE, PIERS, WE ARE SURPRISED THAT THIS DOES NOT BOTHER YOU.

    Piers, darling. Your interviews are distasteful, droning and really unneeded for tv. Who cares about Hugh? And you make this list of people to be banned on your list...NOT REALISING YOU'D BE FIRED FROM CNN SOON ENOUGH FOR YOUR INVOLVEMENT IN THE HACKING OF THE MIRROR. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU TAKE THE HOT SEAT SOON WHERE THE TABLES ARE GOING TO BE TURNING AND YOU'D BE ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS. *Piers voice*: That's gotta be interesting to see!

    I know @PiersMorgan believes he can judge on "Singing"/ talent shows, but I really wonder how he will judge the SINGING of the Murdocks & Brooks next week. He would love to get his buzzer on them before they start singing and they sure have a lot to sing about. #Piersisverynervous

    Emma you may be correct as at first it looked like a new Larry King but deteriorated fast. This Piers Playboy and Hefner stuff had no questions about Hefner's daughter quickly leaving the firm and nothing about Hefner's own problems re-surfacing like Hefner had with attorney general of the US in the past. Hefner and his relative Marston somehow have gotten close with Claire Sinclair aka Ms. Riccio whose associations may also now be involved someway with Playboy associations. It is incredible how Hefner can be asked to comment on American business, personal relations or some lady in Florida who had a trial.
