There are lots of benefits to being married to Hugh Hefner. One is that he's rich. Another is that you are automatically invited to, like, the best parties ever. And a third is that he'll die way before you, if you're into that sort of thing.

Per that whole death thing, Hef has now somewhat implicitly accepted his own mortality, and purchased a home in the Hollywood Hills for his current wife, 27-year-old Crystal Harris.
