Kendra Wilkinson is a reality TV actress. She became famous on the E! show The Girls Next Door, which documented her living at the Playboy Mansion as one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends. Yes, that meant sleeping with the octogenarian. And yes she was drunk most of the time. She was 18 years old at the time, was posing nude, and liked to party. After meeting NFL player Hank Baskett, Kendra moved out of the mansion and landed her own reality TV show, Kendra on Top, which documents the 29-year-old’s life as a wife and mother of two young children.
Kendra can also be seen on the BBC reality TV show, I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! It’s a Survivor-like competition where celebrities leave their glamorous lives behind and rough it in a jungle with strangers, on camera. Her camp mates are criticizing her for “putting on an act” for the show. She’s been flirting with camp mate Jake Quickenden, talking about her days sleeping with Hef, crying about her husband’s struggle with depression, and she’s not afraid to take off her clothes. Is she “putting on an act” for the show? Yes, that’s her job, and she’s good at it. The show is averaging an audience of more than 10 million per episode.
