Hugh Hefner passed away yesterday at 91 years old.
Hugh is survived by his third wife, Crystal Harris, and his four children: Christie, who served as CEO of Playboy Enterprise for more than 20 years; David, Marston and Cooper, 26, who now serves as Chief Creative Officer at the company. "I will forever be grateful", McCarthy wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of a Playboy magazine she appeared on.
"I was praying for anything to get me out of there". I'm so honoured to have been a part of the Playboy team!
However, in later life Hefner became a caricature, always wearing his trademark velvet dressing gown, and attended by a gang of women known as "the girlfriends". He wrote, "I had a number of great conversations and with Hugh Hefner".
Hefner made several cameos in film and TV, including Sex and the City, and The House Bunny starring Anna Faris as a former Playboy Bunny who suddenly finds herself homeless. The two married at the Playboy Mansion in 2009.
Kendra married National Football League star Hank Baskett in June 2009 following her split from Hugh. Along with Madison and Marquardt, Wilkinson had a cameo in the 2006 film "Scary Movie 4". Kim Kardashian told her Twitter followers: "RIP to the legendary Hugh Hefner!". Overnight, Hefner's daughter, Christie, was seen leaving the mansion followed by other family members. She previously spoke about the possibility of his death.
"If you were still a boy, in nearly a Peter Pan kind of way, and could have just the ideal life that you wanted to have, that's the life I invented for myself".
