A source told us, “Crystal wanted to ditch Hef at the altar. Her plan was to walk up the aisle and say she couldn’t go through with it. The wedding was to be filmed for a reality special, and her refusal to marry him would be a sensation. She was looking for a tie-in deal of around $500,000 for the exclusive ‘I ditched Hef at the altar’ interview. While there was interest, Crystal didn’t get an offer anywhere near half a million.”

Oh, it was also reported that Harris had been two-timing Hef with another man for months.

I’m so glad the sanctity of marriage is limited to those who couldn’t care less about it. I’m happy that the rights and responsibilities that come with marriage were about to be wasted on yet another couple who would take them for granted. And I’m thrilled there are folks out there who insist on fighting tooth and nail to keep gays and lesbians who revere the institution of marriage from truly honoring its traditions of love, honor and commitment so that straight couples can continue to denigrate it the way Crystal Harris was about to.
