A Playmate scorned...

Hugh Hefner's ex-girlfriend Holly Madison tells Life & Style magazine she's not OK with his engagement plans.

She says the 84-year-old Playboy magazine founder is "making a hasty decision" by getting engaged to 24-year-old Playmate Crystal Harris.

Madison tells Life & Style she arranged a meeting with the couple after reading on Twitter that Hefner had proposed. The meeting was filmed for her "Holly's World" reality show on the E! cable television channel. She says it was "definitely awkward."

Madison says she wished the couple the best but told them Harris had better not do Hefner wrong or she'll "kick her butt."

The 31-year-old Madison and Hefner dated for six years until their breakup in 2008 because she wanted to get married and he didn't.

This would be the third marriage for Hefner. He divorced another Playmate last year.

Furlong arrested...

Prosecutors say "Green Hornet" and "Terminator 2" star Eddie Furlong has been arrested in Los Angeles for violating a court order to stay 100 yards away from his estranged wife.

City Attorney's Office spokesman Frank Mateljan says the 33-year-old actor was in court Tuesday for a hearing on the three-year restraining order obtained by Rachael Kneeland when the judge ordered his arrest. He was released on $75,000 bond about three hours later.

People magazine was first to report the arrest, which came a day after the premiere of "Green Hornet." The movie is in theaters Friday.

Kneeland and Furlong, the parents of a 4-year-old son, are involved in divorce proceedings.

Prosecutors say Furlong pleaded no contest in November to violating the court's order, and a progress hearing Tuesday determined he violated probation terms several weeks later.

Aretha is 'superb'...

A month after surgery in Detroit for an undisclosed ailment, Aretha Franklin says her health is "superb."

Franklin called in to Wednesday's installment of "The Wendy Williams Show," telling the host she was relaxing at a casino hotel in her hometown and hopes to begin traveling soon, saying she'll be "looking for a fabulous beach." She says she has two more weeks of down time as she continues her recovery.

The legendary singer also vowed to reschedule the concert dates she missed.

Franklin's voice was strong and steady during the interview, and she hinted she was dating someone.

With the exception of written statements and print interviews with Jet magazine, this was one of the first times the 68-year-old Franklin has been heard since the Dec. 2 surgery.
