Kendra Wilkinson is best known as one of Hugh Hefner’s old girlfriends, while Hank Baskett is an NFL Wide Receiver.
Kendra and Hank got engaged back in the fall of 2008. The announcement was made on E! Online on November 6th, 2008. The marriage then took place on June 27th of 2009 at the Playboy Mansion. There was speculation that Hugh Hefner would be the one to give Kendra away, but it turned out that her brother Colin received that honour. US Weekly purchased the rights to the wedding pictures for $120,000!
A few days before the wedding on June 11th, 2009, Kendra and Hank had announced that they were expecting their first child. On December 11th of the same year Hank IV was born. After the birth of their first boy Kendra suffered from postpartum depression. She ballooned to 140 pounds and personal hygiene went out the window. Kendra believed that this was a mix of having the baby and then moving to Indianapolis, where Hank had been traded to and not knowing anyone in the knew town.
Most people know that Kendra was one of Hugh Hefner’s three girlfriends. She starred in the reality series The Girls Next Door with Hugh’s other two girl’s Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt. After The Girls Next Door, Kendra began starring in her own reality show titled Kendra. This series focussed on her life after leaving the Playboy Mansion behind and a big chunk of the series also involved her relationship with Hank Baskett.
Kendra got into the Playboy Mansion as one of Hugh’s “Painted Girls” for his 78th birthday party. Shortly after this Hugh asked Kendra to be one of his girlfriends, which turned out to be her big break. Kendra has never been a Playboy Playmate, but she has appeared in three Girls Next Door nude pictorials.
Some big controversy surrounding Kendra happened a couple years ago in May of 2010. A sex tape surfaced with Kendra as an 18 year old with her high school boyfriend. Kendra initially contested the release of this video, but eventually was paid $680,000 for the film.
