The Word: Hugh Hefner states the obvious for 2012

Captain Booty Call’s marriage advice: “Abandon ship!”

After a tumultuous 2011 that saw his engagement to Crystal Harris (who I like to think of as a very low-rent Kardashian in her media manipulation) fizzle, Hugh Hefner, 85, is vowing to avoid marriage for 2012. “This year has been a very interesting year for me. I almost got married,” Hefner tells People magazine. “And as Holly [Madison] — a dear friend and former girlfriend — said, ‘Well, you missed a bullet.’ I think that’s accurate. I am clearly not meant to be married. Married life isn’t for me.”

You’d think the man who is known as an international Playboy and has called a mansion filled with frolicking naked women home for most of his life would have figured that out, oh, about 65 years ago.

Greene isn’t making friends on ‘Pan Am’

Has Ashley Greene gotten a little too big for her “Twilight” britches?

While Greene has been filming a guest stint on struggling TV drama “Pan Am,” she reportedly hasn’t been making any friends among the cast. “Ashley came rolling on to the set acting like a queen bee,” a source says, according to Hollyscoop. “She was stuck-up with the crew and acted like appearing on TV amounted to slumming. She referred to herself as a ‘real movie star,’ and said she was sure her guest stint would boost ratings.” Folks from the show reportedly set up a “welcome lunch” for Greene, which she blew off.

Girlfriend, you were third string in a movie about sparkling vampires. You have far to go until you’re allowed to act like Mariah Carey.
