LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- When news broke last week that 82-year-old Playboy impresario Hugh Hefner had split with one of his girlfriends, 30-year-old Playmate Holly Madison, following a seven-year relationship, thousands of potential bunny ears around the country perked up.
While there are plenty of eligible ladies out there, including rumored new Hef paramours, twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon, there are still quite a few eligible Hollywood stunners in Hef’s own age range.
AccessHollywood.com asked our loyal readers to chime in on which age appropriate lady he should date in an online poll last week. From a prestigious field that included adorable Betty White, Oscar winner Shirley MacLaine, screen-legend Lauren Bacall and “Dancing With the Stars” comeback kid, Cloris Leachman, Access readers chose Cloris in droves.
Upon hearing the news, backstage at “DWTS” Tuesday night, Cloris weighed on the possibility of dating the Hef.
“He wouldn’t like me,” she stated.
“Why not?” Access asked.
“Well, I wouldn’t like him,” she said. “No, we’re not right for each other. We’re very good for other people.”
When asked if Hef was Cloris’ type, she said only time would tell.
“I’ve never been to the Mansion. I’ll have to see,” she said.
And Hef’s ex, Holly, even weighed in on the choice, giving her endorsement.
“I don’t think that’s his type, but I love Cloris Leachman,” the blonde bombshell raved. “She’d have my blessing!”
