Holly Madison had a "good chance" of marrying Hugh Hefner. The 82-year-old Playboy founder considered making his former girlfriend - who is now dating magician Criss Angel - his wife, but was put off by his previous bad experiences.
Hugh said: "It has to do with timing. I've been married twice. Those are not the happiest times of my life, and I just don't want to screw up another."
"She had a very good chance because I think she would've made a very good wife and will make a good wife to Criss or whoever she winds up with."
Hugh also claimed he got over his split from former girlfriends Holly, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt by immediately launching into new relationships with twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon and Crystal Harris.
He told E!: "The best solution to lost love is new love."
When questioned on rumors he is planning to invite another girl to move into his legendary Playboy Mansion home, Hugh replied: "We don't have anyone in particular, but it's always possible. There was one point when I had seven girlfriends."
