“I think being on TV helped us expedite everything a little bit more and push us more into the therapy a lot more,” says Kendra in a recent interview. “It pushed us a little bit more to get to the root of our problem and the root of our feelings.”
Last year reports surfaced about Hank Baskett’s alleged indiscretions with a transgender woman, Ava Sabrina London. YouTube model Ava made her affair with Hank public just weeks after the birth of Hank’s second child, which sent Kendra Wilkinson into a tirade that included flushing her wedding ring down the toilet. A hot minute later, the un-happily married couple were signed up for this season of WeTV’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. At the time of signing, Kendra said, “We needed the help and we really needed to focus on what our real issues were and what we need to do to solve them.”
Now that Marriage Boot Camp is rolling along, Kendra and Hank’s costars are crying foul about the drama that got them on the show in the first place. Co-star and former Jersey Shore reality cast member, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino told his castmates that “We know the type of girl that Kendra is. If that story was real, she would’ve punched him in the motherf—ing face right in front of us.”
Kendra, who never met a reality TV show she did not like, and Hank are the only marriage couple in the cast. “We needed the help and we really needed to focus on what our real issues were and what we need to do to solve them,” saidKendra, on why she and Hankjoined that cast in the midst of Hank’s cheating scandal. “We went in fighting each other, we went out fighting the world. That is where we remain right now.” See the season 3 premiere party pictures below!
Ah, remember when Kendra Wilkinson was just a little Playboy plaything and hung out eating burritos at the Playboy Mansion all day long while servicing Hugh Hefner from time to time? It’s been a long road from there, one that’s included marriage, two kids, reality show spin offs and a public breakup/makeup last year with current hubby, Hank Baskett, who’s admitted to – er – indiscretions with a transvestite. Allegedly.
This brings us to this important moment, the moment when Kendra and Hank take their public messiness even more public by signing up for the next installment of WeTV’s Marriage Boot Camp, to be aired beginningthis May. The same network that airs Kendra on Top will now help the couple explore their issues through useful exercises “such as forcing the couples to pull the plug on their coma-stricken partner to feel what life would be like without them, partnered with Boot Camp staples such as the lie detector test and divorce court,” says WeTV.
Three seconds after Bravo fired Aviva, she announced her participation in the next season of Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars. Apparently, Aviva thinks RHONY took its toll on her marriage, and Reid Drescher agrees. So naturally the couple agreed to appear on a second reality TV show to talk about the fact that they believe reality TV has ruined their marriage. Only in FameWhoreVille does this make any sense.
According to the disgruntled ex-manager, Reid and Aviva were paid $100,000 for Marriage Boot Camp, and she was promised a 10% commission. Well…
“I sincerely cannot believe that Slade pulled this off last night,” Gretchen wrote on Instagram. “I mean to say I had NO idea is an understatement! So many of my sweet friends came to surprise and celebrate me! I’m still on cloud nine!”
“Now @sladesmiley I’m going to kill you because no one has ever been able to keep me out of the loop like that before and surprise me that well! Oh and also because I put my hair in a side braid cause I was tired from my photoshoot and did not want to restyle my hair. Not cute buddy. And you had my mom trick me too! Best Birthday in a long time!!” See photos from Gretchen‘s party below.
