The days of The Girls Next Door may be over--well at least with the original cast!

The world's ultimate playboy, Hugh Hefner, has moved on with three new girlfriends, and is dishing on his new life inside the mansion.

In an interview with E! News, Hef says "The best solution to lost love is new love."

The Playboy Magazine founder, along with girlfriends Karissa and Kristina Shannon and Crystal Harris revealed how they all came to be together.

Hef says he reached out to the twins while they were being scouted as Playmates for the magazine's 55th anniversary issue--they moved in about two weeks after he separated from Holly Madison. As for Crystal, he met her at his annual Halloween party and after a month together, Hef asked her to move into the mansion.

"I'm much more reserved than the twins," says Harris. "They are much more outgoing, and I'm the type of person who likes to stay close to home. Hef has the best of both worlds in us."

Hef sure doesn't seem to be sweating the loss of former Girls Next Door Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson. He's even met Kendra's fiance, footballer Hank Baskett, and calls him a "cool guy." As for whether they'll tie the knot at the mansion this summer, Hef says, "it's their call."

Hef also thinks Holly would have been marriage material if he hadn't already been married twice.

"Those are not the happiest times of my life and I just don't want to screw up another," says Hef. "Holly had a very good chance because I think she would've made a very good wife and will make a good wife to Criss Angel or whoever she winds up with."

In the meantime, the Playboy magnet says he doesn't really have time to miss his triple exes saying, "I'm very busy." Especially given the gossip he may be scouting for another girl to join him at the Mansion—a rumor he doesn't exactly shoot down.

"We don't have anyone in particular, but it's always possible," he says. "There was one point when I had seven girlfriends."
