Hugh Hefner is a forgiving man.

After having his sexual prowess dissed by Crystal Harris when she fled the mansion days before their intended 2011 wedding, the nation’s playboy-in-chief has decided to take her back.

"Access Hollywood" reports that the pair has rekindled their romance.

"Yes @hughhefner and I are back together," the 26-year-old Tweeted of her 86-year-old lover. "Yes I am his #1 girl again. Yes we are happy. Hope that clears up any confusion! Xo"

"Happy to be back home at the Playboy Mansion with @hughhefner and our puppy Charlie," she added. "I missed all the love and laughs."

"Getting back together with Crystal Harris shouldn’t be a big surprise," Hef tweeted, "since I have a history of remaining close to former girlfriends.

Hef said that it was his longtime assistant/secretary Mary O’Conner who got Crystal back.

“Crystal was miserable & said so," wrote Hef. "Mary told Crystal to write & tell me, which she did."

Who says there are no modern-day fairy tales?

Why is cricket ‘gay’?

Jason Alexander had a George Costanza moment on CBS’s "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson."

On Friday’s show, Alexander told Ferguson that parts of cricket make it a "gay game" compared to other sports.

Gays were of course insulted by the remark, but not, as you might expect, cricket players. We have no idea about gay cricket players.

In a blog post Sunday, the former "Seinfeld" star explained that he at first didn’t grasp why some might object to the comment, but that subsequent conversations with his gay friends led him to realize his insensitivity.

The actor’s 1,000-word-plus "message of amends" said that the joking remark plays into "hurtful assumptions and diminishments" about people. Alexander also writes that as an actor with many gay friends, he "should know better."

Tattle still isn’t quite sure what the actual objection to the comment is — it only diminishes cricket if you believe "gay" is a term of diminishment — but our colleague Kevin Bevan says it might have something to do with a sticky wicket.

TATTBITS

Trial is set to open Monday in New Orleans for Stephen Baldwin’s suit against Kevin Costner over their investments in Ocean Therapy Solutions and a device that BP used to try to clean up the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The suit claims Costner and a business partner duped Baldwin and his friend, Spyridon Contogouris, out of their shares of an $18 million deal for BP to buy oil-separating centrifuges after the April 2010 spill.

Baldwin and Contogouris said they didn’t know about the deal when they agreed to sell their shares.

"Oprah’s Book Club 2.0," a joint project of Winfrey’s OWN network and her O magazine, begins Monday with Cheryl Strayed’s popular memoir "Wild." Along with the traditional paper version, featuring the circular Oprah book club logo, special e-editions will be made available that include Winfrey’s comments and a reader’s guide.

One book that will not be part of Oprah’s club is the new memoir from John Edwards’ mistress Rielle Hunter.

"What Really Happened" is to be released June 26.

Tattle’s response, "Please Go Away" will come out soon thereafter. "Rielle Annoying" was taken.
