Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris
Hugh Hefner gave his girlfriend a pretty good Christmas gift.
The 84-year-old Playboy founder proposed to his 24-year-old girlfriend, Crystal Harris Friday night. "I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve," Hefner tweeted. "When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory."
Hefner later clarified that he did indeed ask Harris to marry him. "Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring," he wrote. "I didn't mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all."

Peter's management style certainly won't surprise regular Family Guy viewers, and taxpayers can be relieved that Pewterschmidt Industries didn't receive a bailout. Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons have voice cameos in their Big Bang Theory roles. — Paul Droesch
