New Canadian playmate for Hef

Los Angeles – Meet Hugh Hefner’s new girlfriend – Miss November 2010.

Two weeks after the Playboy founder was dumped by Miss December 2009 just before their wedding, Hefner said yesterday that he was now dating Miss November 2010.

The 85-year-old magazine mogul moved on to Shera Bechard after Crystal Harris had second thoughts about becoming the third Mrs Hugh Hefner.

Bechard, a 27-year-old French-Canadian model and fledgling actress, moved into the Playboy Mansion in April. In addition to being the magazine’s centrefold last November, she will also be Miss November 2011, Hefner said on Twitter.

The Roy Orbison and Seinfeld fan likes men “who are open to exploring their sexuality with me” and “make me laugh so hard I hyperventilate,” according to her profile in last year’s issue.

Harris (25) is on the cover of the current issue, billed as “Mrs. Crystal Hefner”. It went to press before the break-up, but Hefner was able to rush out “runaway bride” stickers to affix to newsstand copies.
Harris said she got jitters about living a tightly regimented life among dozens of attractive young women at the Playboy mansion, and left Hefner days before their scheduled June 18 wedding.

Initially heartbroken, Hefner has taken a more philosophical stance, saying last weekend that “staying single is probably for the best”.
