LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Hugh Hefner is getting by with a little help from his friends. Well, with a little help from Crystal Harris’ friend.
The men’s mag magnate has found a new blond bombshell to help ease the pain of his recently called-off wedding — Playmate Anna Sophia Berglund.
“With Crystal gone, Anna is my best girl,” Hef Tweeted on Thursday. “But she’s also Crystal’s good friend. Anna is really one in a million.”
Berglund, 25, is a — you guessed it! — blond beauty who boasts a degree in Theater from UCLA, and has appeared made brief (uncredited) appearances on “Desperate Housewives” and “Hannah Montana.”
The aspiring actress also graced the pages of Hef’s famed magazine earlier in the year as Playboy’s January Playmate of the Month.
So, is the former future Mrs. Hefner worried about her “good friend” spending time with her ex? Not at all, since, according to Crystal, the pair are not dating.
“Nope!” Crystal Tweeted on Thursday after a fan asked if Anna and Hef were romantically involved. “Shes just over there regulating making sure Hef ends up w a good girl;)”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Hef, 85, and his now ex-fiancee, Crystal, 25, were scheduled to wed last weekend, but parted ways.
Hef shared the news on Twitter after the story first broke, Tweeting, “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart,” on June 14.
Later that day, Crystal issued a statement on her own website
“After much deep reflection and thought I have decided to end my engagement with Hef,” she said in her statement. “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.”
