A sign of the apocalypse Part II

First Dawn 'Mary Ann' Wells gets arrested for having marijuana, now Hugh Hefner may have to make cutbacks.

Tycoon Hugh Hefner has been advised to cut back on staff at his multi-million dollar glamour empire as it struggles to cope during the global economic turmoil.

The 83-year-old has been told to lay off some of his staff at his Los Angeles and New York offices as soon as this month or go bankrupt.

Seriously if Hefner has to cut back that quickly, he must have serious financial difficulties.

There is other trouble for Hugh also.

The news will be another blow to Hefner who recently discovered that two of his "bunnies" may have been cheating on him.

Holly Madison, who has previously been named as Hefner's "No.1″ girlfriend, is alleged to have had an affair with magician Criss Angel and another bunny, Kendra Wilson, is reportedly dating football star Hank Baskett.

Its hard times for people all over the world right now. Hugh will just have to move on(or over).

Hat tip- Doug at Below the Beltway who writes "It's a sad day for America, my friends."

Poor pops.

I think any man who took anything Hefner did as "dating" advice is very sad.

The safe bet is none of the cuts will involve those with silicone (siliconic?) enhancements.

Oh please. It's not the economy that is killing Playboy Enterprises. It's the fact that everything they touch turns to s**t these days, from the magazine to the clothing to the TV empire. For ten years that business has been on the decline, and the economy is only accelerating the inevitable. The magazine is crap, the interviews are shorter and more fluffier, the politics are more and more radicalized, the photography is more and more amateur hour mixed with MASSIVE photoshopping and people are getting sick of it.

Playboy killed themselves. I actually begrudge my *FREE* subscription because it takes up room in my trash. Yeah, I could cancel it, but #^(% them, let 'em pay the postage to send it to me. This current management team deserves the pain.

Maybe he'd make more money if they didn't airbrush the models to the extent that they look like they're computer generated.

Well, that, and if he didn't have to compete with the internet.

Hef will just take TWO viagra pills instead of one.

Dodo David:

At his age, Hefner probably thinks that a lay-off is a Playboy Bunny contest.
