Mary O'Connor, Hugh Hefner's longtime secretary who appeared on the reality series "Girls Next Door" died this weekend, according to the Playboy founder.
On Monday, Hefner tweeted the sad news to his followers, writing:
"Mary passed away today. We loved her more than words can say."
O'Connor, who was in her 80s when she passed, had worked alongside Hef at the Playboy mansion for more than 40 years. Though her cause of death has not been released, it appears that O'Connor had been ill. On Saturday, Hefner tweeted that his new wife, Crystal Harris, was going to visit O'Connor, as she had not been doing well.
The Playboy founder had previously credited his longtime secretary with helping to reunite him with Harris after the two called off their wedding in June 2011. When the pair reconciled this past summer, Hefner tweeted, "It's Mary O'Conner that brought Crystal Harris back. Crystal was miserable & said so. »
