Hefner agreed with Morgan that if he was seriously considering marrying a third time, he might need to have his head examined, then at 85 to a 25-year-old woman. The father of four children was previously married Mildred Williams from 1949 to 1957 when he launched his magazine and then took a long bachelor’s break before getting married Kimberley ConradThey separated in 1998 and she moved into the Playboy Mansion next door with her young sons Cooper and Marston, but didn’t get divorced until 2010.
“I made the commitment quite openly because I had the feeling that in a previous relationship with Holly I wasn’t there for her the way she wanted. I just wanted to do anything that would make the relationship work!” “” Hefner told Morgan. “You know I was ready to settle down, it was time.” He smiled. “But on another level, I have to honestly say that I woke up the following Monday and was single and thought that’s the natural way of things. I should be single.”
He explained that he had told Crystal that if she had any doubts he could well cancel the wedding, but he was surprised that it was gone for good, just as the weekly Sunday Movie Night at the Playboy Mansion had begun. She told him she went to see her mother in San Diego, but Hef was skeptical because he couldn’t reach her there.
“I think you could argue that she took me away,” nodded Hefner. “But I have to be honest, it was a pretty nice ride.” Morgan laughed. “It’s been two and a half very good years and when she faked it she did very well.”
