What was "creepy" about him ? He was a businessman catering to a market, and very successful at it. It will be interesting to see what comes out about what went on behind closed doors, now that the risk of defamation is removed, but I doubt it will be damning.

Max, the impression is that he was just a nice person ... you would expect with anyone who had been in any business for that long, if there was any dirt, it would have been exposed by now ... I'm sure there will be something, time will tell!

Jerry Lewis' demise brought out stories of how he neglected or ignored his children, and it did not take long, any "dirt" on Hefner won't be long in surfacing, if it is there.

All this presumes that there was a legitimate marriage. I think there is a lot of confusion between Playboy the brand and the role of the mansion and the women employed there as being ''the brand'' of Playboy with Hefner as the embodiment of ''the brand''.

The mansion was sold a year ago and Playboy rents it back. His ''wife'' had signed an iron-clad prenup and was in the words of the family, ''well looked after'' in his death. His daughter and more recently a son have run the business with his daughter rescuing the company from ruin. 

Some may have caught Turnbull on Thursday night and got caught up in him being pizzy and all that Macklemore thing, but if you listened to him being asked about visiting the Playboy mansion, he said he talked to Christie Hefner in Chicago in 1978 about Packer securing the rights to publish Playboy Australia That suggests she has held the reins for at least 40 years. Hef, I think was all for show to sell the idea he represented to sell product.

Are you saying PT .       Hugh's powder was dry at the time of death, That his trigger hadn't been pulled in many years.
He was just a brand name ...      Probably right ,but what was the bride , 60 years his junior , all about.

I know nothing of the dryness of his powder nor, as AA suggests, the size of the trout in his trousers maxie, I am just saying he was about living a lifestyle that sold Playboy and ''the bride'' a well paid co-star in that charade.

He was a businessman selling a fantasy. Ogling attractive young women never goes out of fashion in the market-place, so you have to admit the business model was sound.

Plenty of women that appeared in Playboy magazine were actresses and singers, which is not surprising, as those professions depend on sex appeal for advancement, to a large degree. Hefner's business depended on visual sex appeal, superficial as that is. Anyone whose head could be turned by a pretty woman, was a potential customer. That adds up to a lot of buyers.

The real Ladies are few & far between now.

   Built like a Clydesdale stallion as AA says ,   seems to be the go.
I thought size didn't matter .    > Judged on the famous saying ,   
It isn't the length of the fuse , it is the quality of the powder.

LAPD apologizes for confirming Tom Petty's death (he's still clinging to life per TMZ). This is a massive mistake!!!!

Click on the Tom Petty hashtag and it really is a smorgasbord of angst. 

I liked this tweet even if it is a little distasteful.
