The device monitors for up to 24 hours, although a 48 hour version is apparently in the pipeline.

New Playboy Playmate of the Year: Claire Sinclair on E!

| Jun 15, 2011

Bye, bye, Crystal Harris. Don’t let the Mansion door hit you on the way out.

As the world learns that Hugh Hefner‘s fiancé got cold feet just five days before their wedding that doesn’t mean others didn’t see it coming…

Recently crowned Playboy Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair says she had a feeling something like this might happen. “I’m not surprised in the least,” Sinclair, who dates Hef’s son Marston, just told me. “She seemed very unhappy. It was blatantly obvious to everyone that they didn’t have much in common. …Nobody really understood it. But Hef cared for her and she made him happy, so of course everyone was going to support him.”

She hopes the Playboy boss doesn’t try to reconcile. “He deserves better,” said Sinclair, who will be appearing on Howard Stern‘s radio show tomorrow morning. “It’s a selfish move to do it so suddenly. She should have been a little more adult about it and decided months ago. To put people through this five days before a wedding, I think it’s horrific.”

Is it time for the 85-year-old Hefner to take a break from the ladies? “I think he needs to take a break and reevaluate what he wants in life,” Sinclair said.
