Still a single lady
Saturday was supposed to be 25-year-old Crystal Harris' wedding day at the Playboy mansion, but instead she spent it at Las Vegas' Wet Republic in a bikini and leopard-print coverup. She said she was right to call off the wedding to Hugh Hefner, 85.
"He is the sweetest person I've ever met in my entire life and I'll always love him." She says they speak daily, but he speaks to lots of other women, too, which was a problem. "It doesn't make sense to have so many women around but still have a marriage . . . so it was the right thing" - and it had nothing to do with her rumored romance with Dr. Phil's son Jordan McGraw, her music producer, whom she describes as "one of my really good friends."
Hefner, she says, is fine, and they will see each other Monday when she goes to the mansion to return mementos, including her ring.
'Green Lantern' shines
Ryan Reynolds is the latest superhero to rule the weekend box office.
Reynolds' Green Lantern debuted at No. 1 with $52.7 million domestically, a fair if unremarkable opening. The movie added $17 million in a handful of overseas markets where it has opened.
The previous weekend's top flick, Paramount Pictures' sci-fi adventure Super 8, slipped to No. 2 with $21.3 million. Jim Carrey's family comedy Mr. Popper's Penguins, from 20th Century Fox, came in at No. 3 with $18.2 million.
