Hugh Hefner, Crystal Harris Engaged Again and Planning Wedding

Denise Truscello/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- It’s on again in a big way for Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris.  The two are engaged for a second time and plan to walk down the aisle on New Year’s Eve, says TMZ.com.

Hef and Harris were initially due to marry in June 2011, but she decided to call it off.  They announced their reconciliation in June and, according to TMZ sources, Harris has moved back into the Playboy Mansion and the couple has worked out any problems they might have had.

The same sources claim that Harris learned to be independent and stand on her own two feet during her time apart from Hef. 

The rescheduled wedding service at the mansion is set to be “an intimate gathering with close friends and family.”

Holly Madison Pregnant with First Baby

Steven Lawton/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Holly Madison, the blonde burlesque star, ex-girlfriend of Hugh Hefner and one of the centers of the reality series The Girls Next Door, will be adding the new role of mother to her resume now that she is now pregnant with her first child.

Madison, the 33-year-old star of Peepshow, a burlesque show on the Las Vegas strip, confirmed on her Twitter account Wednesday that she and her boyfriend Pasquale Rotella are expecting a baby.

"It's true!" Hunter tweeted, having retweeted a post from gossip reporter Perez Hilton, who had tweeted "Congrats!!!!! RT OMG!! Holly Madison Is Pregnant!!! "

The former Playboy model and employee, who has been with Rotella for nine months, announced in May that she will end her run in the lead "Bo Peep" role in Peepshow at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino on Dec. 30.

Rotella, 38, is the CEO of Insomniac Events, a concert and event production company. Insomniac is the organizer of the Electric Daisy Carnival rave, an international annual electronic dance music festival.

An hour after Madison made the announcement on Twitter, Rotella confirmed the news, posting, "Yes the rumors are true...," with a Photoshopped Instagram image of him holding a very pregnant belly.

"My better half and I really appreciate all the love and congratulations! Thank you! We can't wait to meet our beautiful baby," he posted later.

Officials behind Peepshow, which Madison joined in June 2009, said that they are working with Madison to see how much of that time she'll be performing in the show.

"The producers of Peepshow couldn't be happier for Holly as we know she has had a long desire to become a mother," show officials said in a statement.

Madison began her career as a model, and soon caught the eye of Playboy CEO Hefner, who soon asked her to move into his famed mansion. After appearing in Playboy, she later worked as junior photo editor. In 2009 she appeared as a contestant on ABC's Dancing with the Stars later in her own reality series Holly's World.

Last year, amid her run in Peepshow, Madison famously insured her breasts for $1 million.

Playmate Wants Hefner Apology for Alleged Attack

Brian To/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair is awaiting a public apology after Hugh Hefner’s oldest son, Marston Hefner, was arrested Sunday night for allegedly attacking her, according to Pasadena, Calif, police. The Playmate said she will not press charges if boyfriend Marston Hefner issues a public apology.

“I’m looking forward to a public apology,” Sinclair told ABC News on Monday. “I am against any sort of domestic violence so once that’s done, I’m ready to bury this and leave it in my past.”

Police were called to the home that Hefner and Sinclair share in Pasadena after she called 911 reporting that Hefner had attacked her, Lt. Phlunte Riddle of the Pasadena police department told ABC News.

When officers arrived at the scene, Sinclair, 20, had redness and scratches on her arms, Riddle said. Sinclair told police Hefner punched and kicked her. Hefner, 21, admitted the couple had an argument but denied that it got physical, Riddle said. Based on the officer’s assessment, police did take Hefner into custody.

“It was really ridiculous,” Sinclair said. “I wanted to leave and his car was blocking mine. He wouldn’t give me the keys or move the car and that’s when he hit me.”

Hefner was arrested for battery but was released on $20,000 bail at 2 a.m., police said. He could not be reached for comment, but Hugh Hefner told People magazine, “If they care about each other, they’ll patch it up.”

Riddle said Sinclair has obtained an emergency restraining order against Hefner, and Sinclair says she is in the process of moving out.

“I don’t want any problems moving forward,” Sinclair said. “I need to be completely distanced.”

The couple has been dating on and off since August 2010. They haven’t spoken since the alleged altercation, Sinclair said, and she doesn’t plan on doing so.

“I can only hope Marston gets psychiatric help and seeks medicine for his anger,” Sinclair said.

The model was named Playboy’s Playmate of the Year in 2011.

Details of Lindsay Lohan's 'Playboy' Shoot Revealed

Mark Boster-Pool/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan is out of jail and in Playboy.

Her rep Steve Honig confirms, "Lindsay has completed a successful photo shoot for Playboy magazine and will be on the cover of the January/February issue, which hits newsstands in late December.  The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay."

The Mean Girls star took part in a photo shoot for Playboy before she entered jail earlier this week for a brief stay.

Playboy head honcho Hugh Hefner spoke to The Insider about Lohan's shoot.  He said she will pay tribute to Marilyn Monroe in the photo spread.

"It's a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which was the original playmate in the very first issue of Playboy," Hefner explains.

But the big question is whether Lohan will be fully nude in the magazine.

Hefner confirms, "Oh yes.  And classy, very classy."

Holly Madison Insures Breasts for $1 Million

Steven Lawton/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Holly Madison, reality television personality and one of Hugh Hefner’s many girlfriends, has reportedly insured her breasts for $1 million.

The model, showgirl and TV personality took out the million-dollar policy with the Lloyd’s of London insurance company, which is known for insuring notable body parts of famous people, including the legs of dancer Michael Flatley for $1 million each and the taste buds of world famous food critic Egon Ronay, for $400,000.

Madison, who speaks openly about her breast augmentation surgery, has said that her surgery brought her from an A-cup to a D-cup.  She said she insured her breasts in order to protect herself and others who appear in her Las Vegas production, Peepshow.

“I’ve heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I’d be out for a few months and I’d probably be out a million dollars,” she told People.  “I thought I’d cover my assets.”

Madison, who appeared on the reality TV series The Girls Next Door, which followed the lives of Hefner’s girlfriends, and her own series about her Vegas exploits called Holly’s World, said that she does appear topless in the Vegas revue.

“I think it’s kind of funny.  I think they’re getting the credit they deserve,” she told People.  “They’re my primary money makers right now.”

Hugh Hefner Claims Crystal Harris Lied about Their Sex Life

Denise Truscello/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Hugh Hefner's ex-fiancée Crystal Harris told Howard Stern on Tuesday that sex with the 85-year-old lasted "like two seconds," but the Playboy founder disagrees.

He tweeted Tuesday night, "Crystal lied about our relationship on Howard Stern but I don't know why.  Maybe a new boyfriend?"

Harris has recently been linked to Dr. Phil's son Jordan McGraw.

Hefner replied to a follower, "Crystal convinced me that she adored me. That was the first lie."  He also wrote, "I feel sorry for Crystal.  She seems lost."

But don't feel sorry for Hefner.  He says he's doing just fine and he's "happy to be in a better place with new girlfriends Anna Sophia Berglund and Shera Bechard."
