TIME Magazine Clotheslines Kris Humphries

It’s that time of year when the weekly news magazines go haywire with Top Ten lists. Over at the healthier TIME end of the publishing spectrum, there are a whopping 54 compilations to choose from.

For FishbowlLA’s money, nothing says “2011” quite like the category of “Top 10 Fleeting Celebrities.” And in a cruel, ironic twist (or as a reflection of good work by the Kardashian publicists), it is not Khloe, Kim or Khourtney who tops this particular Megan Gibson rundown, but rather an innocent NBA bystander:

Short as it was, we’re guessing that the [Kim Kardashian] marriage lasted longer than our memory of Humphries will.

Hef’s Ex Puts Engagement Ring Up for Sale

Hugh Hefner‘s ex-fiance Crystal Harris just put her engagement ring up for sale on the famous auction site Christie’s. TMZ reports the ring could go from anywhere between $20k to $30k.

A source told TMZ Harris “couldn’t bear to look at the ring anymore because it brought back bad memories.” Guess it didn’t occur to her to give the ring back.

Hef’s Creative Solution to Playboy Cover Snafu

Crystal Harris called off her marriage to Hugh Hefner five days before the wedding, but not before the July issue of Playboy mag featuring her as “Mrs. Crystal Hefner” had gone to press.

The world’s most famous editor-in-chief has proved as adept at marketing his break-up as he was his nuptials. He had a sticker reading “RUNAWAY BRIDE IN THIS ISSUE” affixed to the cover of the magazine, which hit newsstands today. It’s sure to become a collector’s issue.

For an 85-year-old, Hef had proved particularly adept at using socal media. Twitter has been his preferred method to communicate with the public about the break-up. He’s been keeping his followers up to date on the many playmates who are stopping by the mansion to offer their “support.”

Too Late To Stop The Presses, Hef’s Ex on Playboy Cover as ‘Mrs. Crystal Hefner’

Crystal Harris may have called off her wedding to Hugh Hefner, but she’s still being featured as Hef’s new bride on the upcoming issue of Playboy.

The mag, which features Harris on the cover with the tag line “America’s Princess: Introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner,” had already gone to press when the wedding was called off on Tuesday. The issue will hit newsstands Friday, just one day before the nuptials were scheduled to take place.

The wedding was to be filmed by Lifetime as part of a two-hour special called Marrying Hef. The network has already shot a substantial amount of footage of the wedding preparations, and some have speculated that the break-up just was a publicity stunt. But today Lifetime announced that they have cancelled the project.

Newest Playboy Has Hugh Hefner’s Ex-Fiancee On Cover as ‘Mrs. Hefner’

Well this is just unfortunate. The July issue of Playboy features Crystal Harris, Hugh Hefner’s fiancee up until yesterday, listed as “Mrs. Crystal Hefner.”

If you’re not up on your Hef Gossip, and shame on you if you aren’t, Harris abruptly called off their wedding just five days before she was set to marry Hefner.

Hefner tweeted that the wedding was off, then sent a few follow-up tweets that actually made us feel kind of bad for the guy. As he noted, she dumped him the same day her single (of course she sings!) was released on iTunes, which just seems like a little bit too much of a coincidence.

But hey, she is 25 years old and he is 85. Something tells us this marriage might not have lasted anyway.

The Incredibly Ill-Timed But Hilariously Funny Crystal & Hef Parody Video

Shortly after this Funny or Die video hit the web, Playboy model Crystal Harris called off her wedding to Hugh Hefner. No reason has been given, but as she says in the video, “My fiance is 60 years older than me and I don’t understand his references!”

Hugh Hefner’s Fiancee Calls Off Wedding

Just five days before she was scheduled to marry Hef, Crystal Harris has called off the wedding. The 85-year-old Playboy mogul tweeted the news: “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart.”

The bride-to-be also issued an online statement, via her website:

After much deep reflection and thought I have decided to end my engagement with Hef. I have the utmost respect for Hef and wish him the best going forward. I hope the media will give each of us the privacy we deserve during this time.

The plea for privacy is written over a provocative background image of 25-year-old Harris clad in nothing but torn up pages of Playboy magazine.

Hugh Hefner Engaged!

The world’s most famous Editor-In-Chief got himself something special for the holidays — a fiance. Hugh Hefner popped the question on Christmas to his live-in girlfriend, playmate Crystal Harris. Hef has long been known as a polyamorous playboy, and at one point had seven steady girlfriends living with him in the mansion — but these days, Crystal is his one and only.

From Hef’s Christmas day Twitter feed:

No news on a wedding date yet, but we’re confident it will be held at the Playboy mansion. Oh, why can’t there be a FishbowlLA mansion?
