Kendra Wilkinson, star of the Girls Next Door and Kendra! finally tied the knot this weekend! Kendra married NFL player, Hank Baskett at the playboy mansion. And no, Hugh Hefner did not give her hand away in marriage as was previously speculated. Her brother, Colin, walked her down the aisle.
The guests included her former Girls Next Door costars Bridget Marquardt and Holly Madison, as well as their ex Hugh Hefner.
Kendra, 24, wore more than $100,000 worth of platinum and diamond jewelry by designer Michael Barin. She is said to have personally selected the 4.25-carat platinum drop earrings ($47,000), the 2.5-carat platinum pendant ($33,700) and the 4.5-carat bracelet ($21,000).
Kendra also announced earlier this month that she and Baskett, 27, were expecting their first child together. She said the baby is due Christmas Day.

Dancing With The Stars ended last night with this season’s first double elimination! There was no dance off as Holly Madison, Steve-O, and Steve Wozniak found themselves in the bottom three.
Holly and Steve Wozniak ended up getting the boot. Both Steve and Holly had endured injuries since the show began. Holly states, “It was a lot physically harder than I thought it was going to be, but it was so much fun and I’m so glad l got a chance to do it,” Madison said. ” And I still love the costumes – that’s still my favorite part.”
Steve also had a positive attitude about his time on the show. He tells People, “These are like real people. Everybody smiles and is supportive and helpful.” While Steve was delightful on the show, it is nice to see him go home before he turned into DWTS’s Sanjaya.
The Bachelor’s Melissa Rycroft has been able to catapult her heartbreak into a spot on DWTS, so is Playboy next?
According to a new report, Melissa has been offered $500,000 to show it all in Playboy. Star Magazine reports that Hugh Hefner sent the Bachelor beauty a personal letter asking her to pose, and also inviting her to a dinner at the Playboy mansion to discuss the deal!
A source reveals, “Hef really wants Melissa to do a pictorial because she’s the ultimate girl next door.” Melissa however could not pose now because it would go against her ABC contract which does now allow her to pose nude while appearing on Dancing With The Stars. The contract also disallows her from posing nude until 3 months after the show ends.
What do you think about this story? Should Melissa pose for Playboy?
The Dancing With The Stars curse rages on with Holly Madison being the latest to fall victim to injury. According to new reports, Holly is dealing with pain in her rib area. Her publicist says she has seen a doctor and was prescribed some pain medication.
If you recall, Holly replaced Jewel at the last minute after the singer suffered fractures in both legs during pre-show training. She is expected to dance on Monday’s show.
This week’s dancing with the stars was a week of good dances and high scores! A lot of the stars continued to show improvement. Melissa Rycroft, Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marini had a triple tie for the top score with each receiving a 27. Not sure if that had ever happened in the dancing history of DWTS.
Eliminations were last night and Denise Richards found herself in the bottom two along with Holly Madison. Yes we’re also wondering how Steve Wozniak escaped the bottom two, perhaps votewoz.com might explain it.
Denise found herself getting the axe, we take it the fans have yet to get over that whole sleeping with your bestfriend’s husband fiasco that occured a while back with Heather Locklear & Richie Sambora. Better luck next time Denise!

Ever wondered how much the Celebs get paid to be on Dancing With The Stars? Well we now have that answer! All the stars get paid the amount of $200,000 for the season. The $200,000 is paid whether or not the stars get voted off. So Belinda Carlisle , the first star voted off this season would still get that amount.
The winner then receives a $100,000 bonus with the 2nd and 3rd runner ups receiving smaller bonuses as well.
Dancing With The Stars eight season premiered last night and it was not a let down!
