Anatomy of a modern relationship, in 30 seconds with bunnies

After continued tabloid-like speculation on news sites over the status of one of Hugh Hefner's ongoing relationships - got this at CNN - I finally bit.

Fans of the not-so-soft-core porn show, "The Girls Next Door," may be dissappointed - or elated - that one of the stars will probably be moving out of the mansion, and others may be showing up.

One is leaving because the 82-year-old Hefner won't marry her or have children with her.
Hefner said Madison learned the pair would never have children or get married six months ago, adding: "The fact that she was depressed after that, I didn't know at all. That was a revelation in the last days and weeks..."
Speaks volumes, but only outside Hefner's "modern" world. The man probably thinks it absolves him since he "didn't know at all."

And, after 40 years in the lifecycle of modern Western feminism, playmates work harder for the status that comes with a certain set of genes, hair dye, heavy makeup and surgical augmentation, all the while still wanting a husband and kids - even if they're with a man who won't be around in a few years, and they're raised alongside his other girlfriends in a house devoted to sexual libertinism.

People are clearly fascinated, but are they surprised?

*We promise to reprise the "30 seconds with bunnies" theme later.
