The bunny ears are flying!

After Playmate and runaway bride Crystal Harris attacked her former fiancé on The Howard Stern Show this week, Hef's bunnies, old and new, came to his defense.

We caught up with former Playmate of The Year and reality star, Jayde Nicole, who had some strong feelings on the current sitch.

So what did the former Girl Next Door think of Crystal essentially calling Hef a "one-minute man" and of the ensuing Twitter battle between the Playboy founder and his ex-bride-to-be?

Crystal better watch her spray-tanned back!

"Hef doesn't usually react to things so it must have been really bad for him to take to Twitter in attack mode," Jayde dished to us at the DavidBartonGym party at The Roxy Thursday night. "You don't want to pick a fight with Hef, he's not someone you want to go up against."

We surely wouldn't want to be on Hef's bad side! The dude has an army of lingerie-clad models behind him just waiting to dig their manicured claws into a catty girl the minute Hef says ‘Go!'"

So good thing, then, that Crystal issued a semi-apology via Twitter yesterday to try and make amends. But was her "I'm sorry" for her "unprepared interview" buyable?

"I don't know if she means it or not but it was definitely smart to do," says Jayde. "I think Crystal is a smart enough girl to know when it is appropriate."

So what does Jayde think prompted C's disrespectful rant?

"Anyone who first moves to L.A. and gets involved in the Playboy lifestyle, it's very overwhelming," Jayde explained to us. "I think sometimes it can get the better of you but she's happy now."

And while Jayde says she and Crystal were "never super close friends," the two "talk and keep in touch."

But as Crystal finds herself in the center of relaysh drama this week, Jayde says she is "so happy" with her current beau, hospitality and nightlife mogul, Tosh Berman.

"We travel to Cabo like half the month and just spend our time there," J says of her current lifestyle.  "He has a house there so we spend our time on the beach and partying—that's our summer!"

Take note C, there is life after the mansion—if you zip the lip!
