Crystal Harris speaks out: Hugh Hefner 'relieved' wedding is off

hugh-hefner-crystal-harris-split.jpg.jpgCrystal Harris, the almost-bride of 85-year-old Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner, has finally explained her sudden decision to ditch Hef just days before the two were set to marry in a lavish ceremony.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday (June 15), Harris said she'd had doubts about the wedding for some time and called it off because it was "the right thing to do."

"For a while I've been having second thoughts about everything,"Harris tells Seacrest. "I haven't really been at peace with myself lately. I didn't think it was fair to him."

"It all happened so fast and they were going to air a show on it and it was all happening too fast for me," added the Playboy cover girl ( her cover shot -- she's billed as "Mrs. Crystal Hefner" -- hits stands on Friday).

Harris says Hef understood, though and stressed that the split was amicable.

"We both agreed it wasn't the bet idea to get married. He kind of told me he was doing it for me because he thought it was what I wanted."
