Popular American Magazine Publisher, Hugh Hefner’s third wife, Crystal, shared that she was “suffering internally” while posting NSFW pics for others and is ready to live for herself. “Modesty is what empowers me these days,” she wrote.
The late publisher’s wife had made her intentions known for changing her mindset about her “Playboy years” and why she feels more “authentic” and “vulnerable” now than ever.
In her words, “Over five years, my account has shifted from not always safe for work posts to my REAL safe for work life,” she wrote on Instagram on Monday, Jan. 10.”
“The real me. I was living for other people before, to make others happy, suffering internally in the process.”
She also made it known to her fans and followers that her Playboy persona and some ‘certain’ photos of her helped her gain fame on social media.
She expressed herself that she doesn’t know the zeal that pushed her up thus saying: “I don’t know whether I felt empowered by dressing scantily clad, showing cleavage, etc …or if I just felt it was expected of me or what”
“But now I can confidently and 100% proudly say, modesty is what empowers me these days, and because it feels so much better internally, it will probably be this way for the rest of my life.”
In her latest post via Instagram, she confessed putting on fake things on her body “I have removed everything fake from my body” and have deleted my old photos, which has really helped me to feel I now belong to myself more.”
“I have made this transition, I always thought… ‘Will my account survive?” Crystal reflected.
“I was watching the girls that had similar pages keep posting the same scantily clad stuff and growing exponentially while I tanked hard.”
As she had made the transition,she became more modest and her female following grew, making her feel like she has “an army of supporters” who see “an actual soul behind the lens.”
She added an appreciation post to people who have been there for her, captioning “I feel that all the people here with me at this point actually care and are invested in my life in a positive way.”
