Happy Birthday Hugh Hefner!

April 6, 2009

Hugh Hefner, easily the world’s most famous playboy, celebrated his 83rd birthday in Sin City over the weekend. The publisher of Playboy magazine celebrated in style, surrounding himself with girlfriends past and present including exes Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt.

Hef’s current lady friends, Crystal Harris, Karissa Shannon, and Kristina Shannon, also attended the birthday bash. Hef said, “As you can tell I am very, very happy. To celebrate my birthday with new girlfriends and former girlfriends is perfect, it’s wonderful. "I’ve had a life well-lived with so much satisfaction, I enjoy just looking back."

An LA Times reporter attending the party wrote that there was visible tension between Hugh and Holly and that Holly refused to speak to Hef unless cameras were rolling. The birthday shenanigans and Hefner’s reunion with Holly, Kendra, and Bridget were filmed for the next season of The Girls Next Door. Such is the drama of reality television.

Happy Birthday Mr. Hefner!
