It's easy to mock Hugh Hefner (Joel McHale does a great job on "Talk Soup") but on "Hef's Runaway Bride" (Lifetime, 10 tonight) you might feel a little guilty for doing so. He comes across kind of sweet and sincere, the wronged party.
OK, it would be hard to believe the blonde, young Crystal Harris was madly in love with the octogenarian (Viagra-enhanced) lover, but this behind-the-scenes look at the-wedding-that-wasn't shows that maybe it wasn't about two people using each other for their purposes. What the show reveals is that something more typical happened: they were both doing what they thought the other wanted.
Yes, there were some machinations going on (after all, this was designed to be a reality show to promote the Playboy brand), but in "Hef's Runaway Bride" the relationship between the two seems sincere. Even Hef's sons, Cooper and Marston, speak about liking Harris, despite their concerns about their dad getting married.
