Hugh Hefner marries his 'runaway bride'

This time, Hef hears an 'I do'

Hugh Hefner is celebrating the new year as a married man once again. The 86-year-old Playboy magazine founder exchanged vows with his "runaway bride," Crystal Harris, at a private Playboy Mansion ceremony on New Year's Eve. Harris, a 26-year-old "Playmate of the Month" in 2009, broke off a previous engagement to Hefner just before they were to be married in 2011. Playboy said on Tuesday that the couple celebrated at a party at the Los Angeles mansion with guests that included Tampa Bay Rays star Evan Longoria, comic Jon Lovitz and Gene Simmons of KISS. Hefner has been married twice before but lived the single life between 1959 and 1989.

Thieves in Paris grab Apple stuff

Masked and armed thieves used the New Year's Eve fete to rob the flagship Apple store in Paris. The French press reported that up to $1.3 million in goods were stolen at the store selling products such as iPhones and iPads behind the Paris Opera house, a figure police would not confirm. According to Dow Jones Newswires, an iPhone 5 in France costs about $900. Police said Tuesday that the theft occurred about 9 p.m. Monday, three hours after closing, while police were deployed around Champs-Elysees Avenue, where revelers traditionally gather on New Year's Eve. The daily Le Parisien reported the thieves entered the store by threatening a security guard.

No law license for F. Lee Bailey

F. Lee Bailey, the attorney who represented O.J. Simpson and Patty Hearst, has been denied his request to practice law in Maine. Bailey, 79, passed the Maine bar exam last winter. He was previously licensed in Florida and Massachusetts, but was disbarred in those states for mishandling $6 million worth of stock for a client. In a 5-4 decision, the Maine Board of Bar Examiners wrote that Bailey hadn't demonstrated by "clear and convincing evidence that he possesses the requisite honesty and integrity" to practice law in Maine, where he has a home. The decision, dated Nov. 30, was first reported Monday by the Sun Journal of Lewiston.
