When Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and his ‘number one’ girlfriend, Crystal Harris, were spotted being filmed at a Hollywood nightclub last Friday night, reporters asked what was up. One report shared of photo of the pair leaving and wrote, “The pair were seen leaving a Hollywood nightclub last night as they shoot scenes for his new television show ‘The Playboy Club‘.”
Exciting news for fans of former E! hits, ‘The Girl’s Next Door‘, ‘Kendra‘ and ‘Holly’s World‘? Not so fast…one of Hef’s lady loves, Trisha Frick (who has a Bachelor of Science degree, thank you very much) says “Nope”! Aww, what a bummer! So what in the world was being filmed? Fans could have to wait for the final word from Playboy, but a clue might be in one of Hef’s tweets from Friday:
“@HughHefner Oscar winning Brigitte Berman’s next film is a documentary on “Playboy’s Penthouse” & “Playboy After Dark.” It should be great.”
If you’ve seen Berman’s ‘Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel‘, you know what a treat this will be for Hefner and Playboy fans! Berman’s title was spot-on because to the very white television community of the ’60s, Hefner was, without doubt, a rebel. His television programs, just like his Playboy Clubs, made history by having black entertainers as regulars. While ‘Playboy, Activist and Rebel‘ covers that, a documentary based solely on the TV programs will be interesting. So, were they filming for the new doc? Was the article hogwash? Maybe fans will be lucky and find that there’s two shows in the works. Gotta wait and see!
