NBC has cancelled the “Playboy Club” after only three episodes. Hugh Hefner spoke out on Twitter about NBC’s decision, saying “It should have been on cable, aimed at a more adult audience.” I personally agree if a show is going to be called the ‘Playboy Club’ it should be aimed at a fully adult audience.

The show had too much hype, but not the good kind. Companies threatened to pull their ads before the show even began due to its adult premise. Combine that with lack of viewers and average writing, the show didn’t stand a chance. It is being replaced with Brian William’s new show “Rock Center with Brian Williams.” Good news though, NBC did order full seasons of “Up All Night,” with Christina Applegate and Will Arnett as well as “Whitney,” with Whitney Cummings.

Honestly, even “Holly’s World” is better than “Playboy Club” and that show is just downright weird. Thank you NBC for the cancellation–can you please bring back Liz Lemon now?

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?
