Hugh Hefner may be 60 years older than his 23-year-old girlfriend Crystal Harris, but that doesn't mean marriage for the two is totally out of the question.

Hef, who turns 84 on Friday, tells me there could be another wedding in his future…

"It's certainly possible," Hefner told me earlier today from the Playboy Mansion, where he was getting ready for his weekly game night. "I certainly care enough for her…I certainly love her enough. We'll see. All I want is for the relationship to be as happy as it is."

Hef's been with Harris for about a year and a half. The two first hooked up when the media mogul was also beginning a relationship with the Shannon twins, who have since moved out of the mansion and into the neighboring Playmate house.

The Girls Next Door poobah and Harris (along with a gaggle of Playmates, of course) are jetting to Las Vegas on Saturday night to celebrate his birthday with a 1980s-themed birthday bash at the Palms Casino Resort's Playboy Club and Moon nightclub.

"I'm having more fun than I did when I was 20," says Hefner.

He's also having fun watching longtime friend Pamela Anderson on Dancing With the Stars, but realizes she's a "long shot" to win. Believe it or not, Hefner has never been approached about competing for that discoball trophy. If they could have Buzz Aldrin on the show, why not the Playboy mogul?

"They haven't asked and I can tell you ahead of time I won't be there," he said, adding with a laugh about Aldrin, "He's a good friend, but he looked a lot cooler on the moon than he does on the dance floor."

That's not all the Hef I have for ya. Come back here tomorrow to find out what he has to say about Kendra, Jenny McCarthy and Kate Gosselin.


Speaking of Las Vegas, did you read our story yesterday about the probably-dating Holly Madison and Benji Madden? You really should.
