Hugh Hefner Shannon Twins Breakup

Hugh Hefner’s barely-legal Buss It Babies are leaving the nest. Shocking, we know. Twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon are moving out of the mansion, the Playboy founder Tweeted Tuesday.

“The Shannon Twins are growing up. They’re moving to the Playmate House with my blessing so they will be free to do other things.”

Hef explains that the girls are looking to get more involved in “Playmate-related promotional work for the company.”

“They’ve been hanging out with a lot of the other Playmates and they see these girls traveling across the country to do promotion,” he told E! News of the twins. “They would like to be doing that, too.”

The girls will move out of the mansion and into the Playmate House — just down the street — in the next couple weeks.

“When they thought about it, they thought it was a good idea,” he said. “They will now be friends, but they won’t be defined as the girlfriends.”

In the meantime, the Girls Next Door star is focused on getting more “serious” with third girlfriend Crystal.
