The world watched reality star Kendra Wilkinson turn down an offer to pose for Playboy again on Sunday’s season premiere of her E! show Kendra, hence the reason Kendra’s appearance on the new Playboy cover (the December issue) has a lot of people wondering what changed.
But it seems Kendra, 25, has a good explanation for why she is covering Playboy magazine once again. Kendra took to her blog to explain the new cover:
“Hey guys! So I wanted to clear something up really quick! A lot of you saw on my show that I was struggling to decide whether to pose for Playboy again or not. I AM on the December cover of Playboy but it wasn’t from a recent shoot. The photos are from a shoot I did 2 years ago when I was still living in the mansion. I’m flattered to be on the cover again and as you all know Playboy has a very special place in my heart! I just wanted you guys to know I didn’t recently pose.”
Kendra, mother of 11 month old baby Hank, could be seen on her show premiere contemplating posing for Playboy, that is until hubby Hank Baskettwas able to talk her out of it. More photos of Kendra from the Playboy shoot below.
In other Kendra news, her mom Patti Wilkinson is now speaking out on her behalf, and defending her marriage to Hank. In a new interview with RadarOnline, Patti reveals Hank and Kendra are just fine following her move to LA without Hank. “They will have more kids,” Patti added. “I just don’t know when.”
TELL US – DID KENDRA MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE IN NOT POSING FOR PLAYBOY AGAIN?
The latest issue of Life & Style magazine headlines ‘Kendra – Why I Left Hank,’ but fret not, it’s not what you think.
Kendra Wilkinson, star of E! network’s Kendra, opens up to the magazine about the hardship of being away from her NFL husbandHank Baskettas she decided to move to LA with their 11-month-old son while he remains in Minnesota playing football.
“Hank’s not going to be there forever, but with him not physically here, I’m a single parent now,” Kendra tells Life & Style. Surely Hank would be happy to hear his wife refer to herself as a “single parent.”
Kendra adds that the hardest part of being away from Hank, 28, is knowing that he will be missing out on some quality time with their son. “The hardest part for sure, though, is Hank missing the baby’s milestones,” she says though adding that Hank has yet to miss out on any important milestones as baby Hank hasn’t started walking.
Kendra, 25, makes it clear that she is having trouble adjusting to being without Hank. “I miss little things like waking up next to him every morning. He sings to me every morning — what guy does that? Hank is just an all-around man,” Kendra gushes. “He knows how to cook a good steak, so I’ll miss his steaks for the next couple of months. I’m going to miss crying to him, taking showers together and getting deep-tissue massages. Just everything.”
Allrighty, the new season of Kendra premieres Sunday, November 7 on the E! network.
Just days after Life & Style magazine reported E! reality star Kendra Wilksinson turned down Playboy because she wanted to lose more weight, Kendra is now attempting to set the record straight.
In a new interview with E!, the Kendra star actually admits she was planning to pose nude again in Playboy but explains she had a change of heart after her husband Hank Baskettfound out about it and had a talk with her.
The 25-year-old mother of one says she hired a photographer to take some test shots and get this, Hank didn’t find out about it until he came home one afternoon to find his wife posing in the living room in some skimpy attire.
“He didn’t yell at me,” Kendra says. “He wasn’t mad at me for doing that photo shoot. He actually sat down with me and he went over the reasons of doing it. And you know, my reasons weren’t right. I wanted to do Playboy for the wrong reasons. The wrong reasons are to prove people wrong, not to prove it to myself but to people and to put my middle finger up to everybody and be like, ‘I’m going to do Playboy!’ But that wasn’t the right reason, you know?”
Life & Style adds that Kendra’s first pictorial in Playboy was in 2005 with former Girls Next Door co-stars Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt.
So Kendra just basically admitted she was planning to pose for Playboy again behind her husband’s back. Must say this story isn’t helping shut down those reports of marital problems between the two.
Despite the reports by multiple media outlets that there is trouble in paradise for Kendra Wilkinson and hubbyHank Baskett, the E! reality star took to her twitter in an attempt to kill the rumors.
Life&Style magazine was the first to report that Kendra was moving to Los Angeles without her husband who is currently playing football in Minnesota. UsWeekly has since confirmed the news as well. The Kendra star tweeted this week: “How handsome do my 2 favorite men look???” and linked to photos of Hank and their son on her website. Some of those photos are below.
A source close to Kendra then told PEOPLE that Kendra & Hank are “just fine.” The source added, “She’ll be spending the majority of her time in L.A. because of work and because her family is here in San Diego… They’re all good in their relationship. Their living situation is always very up in the air. But Kendra likes to have a base in L.A.”
However a newer report by the HollywoodLife states the opposite with a source telling them the couple’s marriage is indeed in trouble. “Its a no brainer,” says the source. “Kendra’s moved four times in four months [and] her kid is going through stuff. She needs her family around her.”
“They are embarrassed they are going through things,” adds the source. The 3rd season of Kendra premieres November 7th, 10pm on E!
TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE ALL IS FINE OR THE MEDIA REPORTS?
After weathering the storm of a sex tape release, a new Life&Style article is insinuating that there is trouble in paradise for former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson and NFL hubby Hank Baskett.
According to the magazine, Kendra, 25, has decided to move to LA without her husband, who will remain 1,500 miles away from her in Minnesota.
“She’s moving back to LA,” an insider reveals to Life & Style. “It’ll happen in mid-October. She made the decision firmly and told Hank.”
The insider adds that Hank is not happy about the move and having to be away from his wife and 10-month-old son Hank Jr. “Hank is pissed,” says the insider. “The fighting between Kendra and him is bad. They’ve had teary fights and crying fits. They’ve been screaming at each other. He can’t understand why she won’t come to Minnesota. Every day is torture for him.”
The mag reveals that the real reason Kendra is moving to LA is to focus on her career as her Kendra reality show on E! is one of the main sources of stability in her life. Plus Hank has spent the past 2 years of his NFL career playing in at least 3 different states.
“In her mind, it’s not her fault Hank can’t keep a job,” a second insider tells Life & Style. “She has a job too — plus friends in LA and family in San Diego. She’s not going to Minnesota and destroy her career.”
TELL US – DO YOU THINK KENDRA AND HANK’S MARRIAGE WILL SURVIVE?
Kendra Wilkinson finds herself in hot water once again, this time over some comments she made about sex tapes.
The E! network Kendra star appeared on Talk Radio Network’s nationally syndicated show, America’s Morning News, and when asked about her thoughts on the sex tape/porno made by actor Laurence Fishburne’s daughter Montana, Kendra said,“Hey that’s what happens when a girl turns 18. When someone turns 18, they have the freedom to do and choose what they want to.”
Some found Kendra’s comments to be advocating that it’s okay for young girls to make sex tapes as long as they are legal, while others said Kendra comments implied making sex tapes was a right of passage for young girls.
And when asked what advice she would give to Laurence, Kendra stated he “has to be there for her. He has to say “F” all, “F” Hollywood. And he has to learn to be there for his daughter.” Adding that “just because she does what she does that porn, he has to get back down to earth and realize who my daughter really is. Is she a good person?”
In other Kendra sex tape news, a new report by InTouch magazine states that Kendra’s sex tape is outselling that of Bravo Housewife Danielle Staubby 4 to 1!
“It surpassed our expectations. It’s our best-selling tape so far this year and could be one of our biggest-selling celebrity sex tapes of all time,” said Steven Hirsch, head of Vivid Entertainment.
So what’s to blame for the lackluster sales of Danielle’s tape? A source says part of the reason is because Kendra is more famous than Danielle, with another source telling InTouch that “Kendra’s sex tape has easily sold four times that of Danielle’s sex tape. It performed poorly, mostly due to the fact that she is not very likable.” Ouch.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KENDRA’S COMMENTS?
The star of Kendra, who had her first child, Hank Baskett IV, last December says her husband Hank Baskett is already pushing for baby #2.
“Yeah, about baby number two, we’re talking about it,” the reality mom, 25, tells E!. “Hank the other day just freaking called me and was like, ‘I want another baby. I want you pregnant.’ “
Kendra however makes it clear she’s not in a huge rush but says she’s “definitely” working to get pregnant next summer because she wants her son who turns 1 in December, to have a playmate. “I want them close in age,” she explains.
Kendra also adds that there are some other factors she has to take in consideration before bringing on baby #2, such as Hank’s NFL job.
“Everything is up in the air. That’s what’s crazy about our lives. Hank right now, you know we’re very positive thinkers and he is doing the most amazing job in training camp, but right now we’re like is he going to make the team.”
Nice to see the two have moved past that whole sex tape hiccup. Kendra is currently filming the third season of her hit reality show.
It’s that time of the year again folks! You know, that time when certain reality stars/celebs decide to reveal some dirty and sordid TMI information about their past in other to sell some books.
This time around, it’s Kendra Wilkinson’s turn. The 25-year-old former Playboy Playmate, who’s sex tape was just released this year, is dishing it all in her new biography – Sliding into Home.
Kendra, who stars on the E! reality show Kendra, doesn’t leave out a single detail about her past life, as she discusses losing her virginity at 13, her drug overdose at 16, her stripper past, and having orgies in the Playboy mansion with Hugh Hefner.
On having sex at thirteen: “Lying on his back, Samuel took a condom out of his pocket and slipped his pants off. I don’t know where he got that condom, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it had spent a year or two in his pocket. I climbed on top of him, but we had no idea what we were doing. I just knew that once I started bleeding I was no longer a virgin, so I watched and waited and, after a minute or so, there was blood.”
On Drug Overdose at Sixteen: “I was bleeding from every hole in my body, and I really thought I was going to die that night,” she said. “But you know what, I survived, and I swear it was a couple of days after that that I had an epiphany. I just stopped drugs, stopped smoking cigarettes, stopped everything, and went home.”
On the CRAZY orgies at the Playboy Mansion: “Eventually everyone got out of the tub and climbed onto Hef’s bed, where he was lying on his back waiting. There were about seven other girls with me, and we were all naked. Someone handed me some body gel, but I had no idea what I was supposed to do with it, so I set it aside on the bed. Holly got things started by getting Hef going, um, orally. Meanwhile, some of the other girls were slapping ass, getting all kinky, and yelling out all sorts of crazy things. I was scared — these girls were strangers to me. I just sat on the edge of the bed and watched. I wanted to be left alone and only do what I had to do. One by one, each girl hopped on Hef and had sex with him. By this point my mom’s voice was no longer in my head, thank goodness, I was just focused on what was going on in front of me. Each girl rode Hef for about a minute or so and then hopped off and did her own thing — some fooled around with the other girls, while others just sort of sat to the side and watched. I studied their every move. Then it was my turn. I had been taking notes in my head, so I knew about a minute was all I needed to put in. Counting the time in my head, I had sex with Hef for the first time. At about the minute mark, I pulled away and it was done. It was like a job. Clock in, clock out. Or in this case, cock in, cock out.”
On Stripping and Doing Drugs In a New Interview – “I wasn’t a druggie stripper. I was a very good person doing it. [But] I was kind of still embarrassed about it,” Kendra clarifies. “I always knew that it was wrong. [But] the drugs and everything, that’s what found me and accepted me,” she says, explaining that her behavior came from a painful place when she had to cope with her father leaving the family.
In other news, a new Life&Style magazine cover story accuses Kendra’s husband, Hank Baskett, of betraying Kendra by partying with some strippers. The story also implies Hank might have cheated on Kendra by getting some “extras” from the strippers.
According to the mag, upon learning of the existence of his wife‘s sex tape(s), Hank visited at least two strip clubs — once while his wife was eight months pregnant.
An acquaintance of Hank’s, Carl Miller, tells Life & Style he accompanied Hank to Rick’s Cabaret in Houston on Nov. 28 and then to the King of Diamonds Gentleman’s Club in Miami in early February. “Hank went to the private VIP room with two girls,” Carl tells Life & Style. “Everyone knows what goes on in those rooms — I don’t need to spell out what happened.”
“Hank loves strippers and strip clubs,” says Carl Miller. “And he doesn’t see anything wrong with it.”
Kendra is however defending her hubby. When asked of the stripper/cheating story by TMZ, Kendra states they are all “lies.”
