I’ve caught myself lately tuning into “Millionaire Matchmaker,” a show on Bravo that does exactly what the title suggests. Mere mortals like myself, who have a lot less than a million dollars to their name, are given the opportunity to be hooked up with millionaires, who for some reason couldn’t find love for themselves. But I guess when you happen to be CEO of a multimillion dollar corporation, anything more than a one night stand isn’t exactly something you have at the top of your wish list.

As much as I make the show my guilty pleasure, I’m no idiot. I know that the concept is disgustingly shallow. There is no way a person would sign themselves up to be a potential boyfriend or girlfriend to these millionaires if all of they had to rely on was their looks. Why? Because while half of them are actually atrocious, most have dry personalities and some are complete train wrecks. And speaking of train wrecks, meet Robin. (Scroll to :40)


Raise your hand if you’re surprised – Hugh Hefner’s latest child-bride, Crystal Harris, has called off the wedding just five days before walking down the aisle. On moving out of the mansion this past Monday, Crystal said, “It was all happening too fast for me.” Really? I’m pretty sure if you’re screwing a guy at his age, nothing is really happening too fast. So was she with him for money, or does she really get off to the wrinkly private parts of Hugh Hefner?

Call me crazy, but I’m guessing it was for the money. It’s too much of a coincidence that her single “Club Queen” was planned to be released on iTunes the week of the wedding. Without all of the publicity from the wedding and posing for Playboy’s July issue as “Mrs. Crystal Hefner,” I’m not so sure people would really pay much care to another platinum blonde making music (Flashback to Heidi Montag’s attempt at succeeding in the music industry).

Claire Sinclair, Playmate and girlfriend of Hefner’s son Martson, had nothing nice to say about Crystal while speaking with Howard Stern. “She’s nothing but a gold digger,” she said. Dear Claire, thanks for stating the obvious. Honestly, if you’re getting involved with an 85-year-old man, you aren’t there to play with whatever he’s got going on down there – unless he’s Hugh Hefner.

Why? Because he’s loaded. That’s what plenty of women unfortunately think is the measure of success. On the state of his mind, Hefner’s Twitter didn’t reveal anything too depressing. In fact, he promoted Crystal’s single simply tweeting, “The wedding is off. Crystal had a change of heart.” Interesting, maybe he was just going along with it to help her career?
