TMZ, the ever-vigilant “little birdies” of the gossip world, broke the story on December 1st and followed it up with reports that Hef and Harris have already obtained a marriage license and are planning an “intimate ceremony with just close friends and relatives” to take place on New Year’s Eve. Since then, the rumor mill has been grinding nonstop, the story picked up by just about every blog, news agency, gossip-monger and late night talk show around.
But in the words of the late Smokey Robinson, “believe half of what you see, son, and none of what you hear.” Rumors heard through the grapevine come with the territory of being a cultural icon, and Hef hasn’t confirmed any of them…yet. But be sure that when he does, you, our faithful readers, will be the first to know.
