Hugh's former long-term girlfriend is angry and confused about why she wasn't given a ring.
No one can argue that Holly Madison didn’t put in her time with Hugh Hefner. She was his devoted girlfriend and loyal arm ornament at red carpet events 2001 to 2008. The couple was together for seven years (although never entirely exclusive) and Holly was always depicted on The Girls Next Door as Hugh’s main lady—she was a sort of house mother to Hugh’s other girlfriends; the leader of the pack.
So it’s not surprising that Celebitchy is reporting that Holly was very pissed to learn about Hef’s engagement to the young wisp of a woman, Cyrstal Harris, who, at 24, is seven years younger than Holly. Hugh Hefner Gets Engaged To Playmate Crystal Harris
Holly has said before that she always wanted to marry Hefner and have his children. She clearly was hoping to secure herself financially to the old man, who is worth approximately $40 million. As a live-in girlfriend, Holly's rent was paid by Hugh and she was given a salary. But it seems she wanted more of a guaranteed income than that.
After their breakup, Holly admitted that she had been trying to get pregnant with Hugh’s child while they were together, and when she wasn’t having any luck, she reportedly began funding her own IVF treatments. But Hugh was never willing to pop the question to Holly, and there was talk that Hugh’s sperm count was running dry at the time of their breakup. During an interview at the Playmate of the Year luncheon in May 2008, Hefner stated, “I love Holly very much and I think we’re going to be together the rest of my life, but marriage isn’t part of my puzzle. It’s not a personal thing; I just haven’t had much luck with marriages.” Holly Madison: Out of the Mansion
