Hugh Hefner's ex-girlfriend Holly Madison has broken her silence about the Playboy boss' Christmas engagement, insisting her former lover could have done better.
Hefner, 84, proposed to 24 year old Crystal Harris on Christmas Day, prompting an upset Madison to demand a face-to-face meeting with her ex, which she plans to air on her reality TV show Holly's World at the end of January.
She initially insisted on keeping her comments about the shock engagement to herself until the TV show aired, but now she's talking to U.S. publication Life & Style.
Madison says, "I'd like to see Hef settle down. I just want it to be with the right person, and I feel like he's making a hasty decision. I'm not sure Crystal is the best thing for him.
"I'm not jealous that he'd marry someone else. I just don't want it to be a girl who's using him to start her career. Basically, I think he could do better than Crystal."
Harris moved into the Playboy Mansion in January 2009 shorty after Hefner and Madison broke up, and the former Playboy Playmate moved out to begin a new life in Las Vegas.
Madison adds, "Crystal hasn't been around very long. She's a mysterious character. No one knows much about her. Plus, she's very young, probably too young to settle down. I've seen a lot of girls try to date Hef, and some have ulterior motives. I don't think it would be a bad idea for him to get to know her a little better.
"I think it's possible Crystal could break Hef's heart. They could end up divorcing, and she could take half his money.
"I wish them the best and that Crystal had better not do him wrong or else I'll kick her butt."
