Maybe we were wrong about Hef and Crystal’s engagement being a publicity stunt*, because shit is getting heated between them, and that can only happen to a couple that was once in love.

It started today when Crystal Harris went on the Howard Stern show and rampantly, unabashedly talked shit on Hef. She told Stern that Hef didn’t undress when they had sex, that she in fact only ever had sex with him once, that she didn’t orgasm during that sex, and that said sex lasted only two seconds because “I was over it, I just, like, walked away…I’m not turned on by Hef.” (WOW. Breaking news. Most of us thought you were wild with desire for the 85-year-old.)

In response, Hef tweeted “The sex with Crystal the first night was good enough so that I kept her over two more nights.”, and then, “Crystal lied about our relationship on Howard Stern but I don’t know why. Maybe a new boyfriend?”

I’m sorry to say this, but can you say biting the hand that feeds you? Hef made Crystal famous practically overnight, and as soon as her contract was up they broke off their engagement, she’s taking the first opportunity she finds to publicly blast him.

Not a wise career move, if you ask me, which nobody did.

I’d like to say that I’m impressed by her boldly rejecting the expected post-Playmate protocol, but it becomes a lot less impressive since she’s doing this on the heels of taking advantage of everything Hef and “Playboy” have to offer.

Although, she is kind of turning Hef’s game around on him by not playing by his rules…

What do you think? Is this a brazen flip of the script, or a stupid career move?

*We weren’t.
