Hugh Hefner‘s ex-girlfriend Holly Madison has voiced her surprise upon hearing that Hugh is now engaged to Crystal Harris, 24. Holly and Hugh were together for 8 years, but called off their relationship in 2008. She told E! that she was ‘very surprised’ which she heard the news of the engagement. Holly commented that her feelings are mixed on the situation:

“I have a lot of different feelings on it, I don’t just feel one way. I kind of didn’t want to put a generic statement out there like ‘Congratulations!’ because I felt everyone would see through that.”

Holly also paid a visit to the Playboy Mansion to visit the couple in person, but she said the situation was quite ‘awkward’. She told UsMagazine:

“I’d describe it as awkward, I just wanted to get my feelings out about the engagement and I wanted to talk to him first. It’s definitely awkward to feel like you’re confronting someone I’m glad I did it. I wanted to be fair and tell him first.”
