Sign of the End Times: Hefner to Cease Playboy Mansion...

The print industry for magazines and newspapers is in a time of crisis. They are losing ad dollars to online ventures and are facing declining readerships. Accordingly, Hugh Hefner is reportedly ending the playboy mansion parties due to the need to reduce costs and improve profitability.

After decades and decades of wild nights, we hear Hef is calling it a day and that Playboy Enterprises has decided that this party and the upcoming annual Halloween party will be the last that the magazine mogul personally throws as a means to cut costs.

She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    I also know that PlayGirl magazine is no longer going to be in print. They are going to be in e form only. I know the two aren’t the same company, just thought I’d mention it though…

    The parties at the mansion are so much a part of Hugh’s identity that I wonder if it also signals that he is simply getting older?
