Hugh Hefner, best known for his publications, died in 2017. Hugh’s third wife, Crystal Hefner, is now his widow. Crystal was the Playboy Playmate of the Month in December 2009, however, she recently confessed that she used to suffer internally at the Playboy Mansion and is now ready to live for herself.
Hefner is content with her decision to retire her bunny ears. Hugh Hefner’s widow discussed her changed perspective on her “Playboy years” and why she feels more “genuine” and “vulnerable” today than ever. She stated that her Playboy character and “certain” photographs aided her social media game stardom.
“Over five years, my account has shifted from not always safe for work posts to my REAL safe for work life. The real me. I was living for other people before, to make others happy, suffering internally in the process.”
“In short, sex sells. I don’t know whether I felt empowered by dressing scantily clad, showing cleavage, etc or if I just felt it was expected of me or what… but now I can confidently and 100% proudly say, modesty is what empowers me these days, and because it feels so much better internally, it will probably be this way for the rest of my life.”
Crystal claimed that she has “removed everything fake from my body” and deleted her previous images, which has made her feel “that I belong more to myself.” She discovered that as she became more modest, her female following grew, making her feel like she has “an army of supporters” who see “an actual soul behind the lens.”
“As I made this transition, I always thought… ‘Will my account survive? I was watching the girls that had similar pages keep posting the same scantily clad stuff and growing exponentially while I tanked hard.”
“I feel that all the people here with me at this point actually care and are invested in my life in a positive way.”
“If you follow for insight into my past life, my new one, my travels, my health hurdles, lifestyle, you name it… thank you. I will make it my mission to try and help in all ways that I can while staying true to myself. I hope all of you can stay true to yourself and to what feels right for you as well, because there’s a certain power you get from that you can’t find anywhere else. I love you.”
Crystal revealed to EDaily !’s Pop in September that she’s been “traveling and figuring out my life” since Hugh’s death. She stated at the time that she found dating tough.
“It makes it hard dating now, because Hugh Hefner treated me so well and was so respectful and so kind to me… I’m trying to match that now.”
Even though the fact that this year marks the fifth anniversary of Hugh’s death, his legacy lives on. It’s encouraging to watch Crystal’s progress, as her followers keep supporting her. Keep an eye on Thirsty for further updates.
