The July issue of Playboy Magazine is going to be placed on newsstands tomorrow morning. The headline reads, “Mrs. Crystal Hefner”, with her on the cover, but what can the magazine company do when the issue is too costly to pull from the shelves?

Because it said that Hefner and Harris were married, Hefner took the responsibility of making stickers for the magazine. According to Yahoo!News, the sticker said “Runaway Bride In This Issue!.” The sticker has been put on about 100,000 or more issues. The stickers were made too late to be put on the subscriber issues of the magazine.

Crystal Harris, the ex-bride of Hugh Hefner, called off the wedding that was scheduled for this past Saturday. Hefner, 85, posted to his Twitter account that the wedding was called off. ABC News reports the post: “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart.”

Harris made a post on her own blog stating that, “After much deep reflection and thought, I have decided to end my engagement with Hef…”

ABC reports that Harris talked to Ryan Seacrest yesterday morning to speak of the ending of the relationship. “I called it off because I didn’t think it was the right thing for me to do…It was mutual between Hef and I. There was no fight.”

Hefner does not seem too heartbroken about the break up, although he told ABC News, “I didn’t see any of this coming, but I’m glad things went wrong before the marriage instead of after. Live and learn.”

To the public, this seemed like a sudden change in decision, but Harris says that she has been having doubts since her and Hefner got engaged on Christmas Eve of 2010. She says “Hef’s lifestyle isn’t the most normal lifestyle…the multiple girls all around. It’s not the lifestyle I wanted.”

Hefner and Harris have sixty years between them, but neither of them have said that this was a factor in the cancellation.
