On the heels of the release of her sex tape yesterday, porn star reality star Kendra Wilkinson is speaking out for the first time since news of her sex tape hit.
In a new interview with the E! network, the 24-year-old former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner reveals she’s having a hard time coping with the release of her sex tape, but reveals she is also thankful that her husband Hank Baskett has been supportive.
“He’s doing a good job because he’s understanding,” said Kendra of her NFL player husband of one year. “He’s like, ‘Kendra, we just have to hold our heads high because, yeah, we’re going to get attacked, but we can’t run.”
During the interview, set to air during the May 31 season finale of her E! show Kendra, she reveals she made the tape with an ex-boyfriend when she was 18, and hopes the public won’t judge her based on actions from six years ago. “That was me, but that’s not me now,” says Kendra, now mom to 5-month-old Hank Baskett IV.
“It broke my heart because how can [someone] do that when I have a baby?” continues Kendra. “It just sucks. It’s the hardest thing to deal with right now.”
And as for how the sex tape will affect her relationship with hubby Hank, Kendra says, “It’s going to be really hard. It’s going to probably be the hardest time of our lives.”
The former star of The Girls Next Doors will begin filming her own reality series, Planet Holly, chronicling her life in Las Vegas, on October 12.
Holly, 29, who split from Playboy mogul, Hugh Hefner, 83, last year and appeared on five seasons of E!’s Girls Next Door, says her new series will be “good-natured” and “inspiring.”
“It will be a guilty pleasure with a lot of eye candy,” says Holly. “There will be elements of GND in my show because there is such a fan following for it. It’s all good-natured and not mean like other reality shows. I’m really excited about the new series because I am also getting a legitimate co-producer credit for all the work I do behind the camera. It’s not a vanity credit. I’m super excited to learn from the best and take on new responsibilities.”
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.
