Crystal Harris, the so-called “runaway Playboy bride,” went on ‘The View’ Monday to dispel rumors that she left Hef at the altar.
She also got a heartfelt apology from Whoopi Goldberg for comments Whoopi made when the news was announced.
“Because I thought you left my friend at the altar, I was a little annoyed, so I apologize,” Whoopi said. “I just thought, How could someone do that? I understand now that wasn’t the case, so I am terribly sorry.”
Harris explained that she spoke to Hugh Hefner privately five days before their planned wedding to call it off. “I told him I didn’t think the wedding was a good idea and he actually said he was only doing it for me. He didn’t really want to get married either,” Harris said.
Watch Harris on “The View:”
Joy Behar was curious what the 25-year-old Harris saw in the 85-year-old perennial pajama wearer. “What were you attracted to besides his money? I mean, that’s obvious, what else?” she asked.
Harris said she was flattered by Hef’s attention and had a lot of fun at the Mansion. “I was intrigued with the whole Playboy lifestyle, growing up I’d look at Playboy magazines. I was insecure, and I thought, Could I ever be that girl? Could I ever be a Playmate?”
Harris also denied that she was seeing Dr. Phil’s son Jordan McGraw during any of the two years she was with Hef.
