An Emissary from the Land of Hef
February 26, 2014
Sorry there haven’t been any posts for a while. I haven’t been feeling well. (Please don’t ask what it is because I’m afraid if I name it I’ll have to keep it.) I’m a bit better now and wanted to send out a quick bulletin regarding the recent discovery that Hugh Hefner is hiding out at The Place. If you don’t read the Comments sections of the posts, you may have missed that an actual Playboy bunny left a message.
Here’s the comment Deana left at the end of the Hugh Hefner Found post:
I came across this and I must say, it’s very clever, very inventive and very funny. Well done to all concerned. I do hope you won’t mind if I add something that’s sort of connected.
It’s now more than 40 years since I was Bunny Deana at the London Playboy Club, and I was sipping champagne with Hugh Hefner in the Playboy Mansion, and yet here we are and still he continues to get a mention in the news. Something is obviously keeping him going…
If anyone is interested, I have a collection of original (and now historic!) Playboy Club photographs online at Bunny Deana Photo Album.
I wrote to Deana and she’s charming and funny and kind. I asked her if I could post a link to her site, and she said she’d be “honored” to share a post with Alice. So here she is.
For un-Playboyish and wholesome fun, I recommend watching her in the Battersea Pancake Race in 1970. The English may not be known for their fine cooking, but they do extremely well at playing with their food. I’m pretty sure the narrator of this short film stayed up all night writing his commentary.
