Kendra Wilkinson is getting candid about life in the Playboy Mansion. After starring on The Girls Next Door, Kendra is ready to dish on topics ranging from dating Hugh Hefner to her reasons for residing in the famed mansion, reported MSN.
Visiting Kocktails With Khloe, Wilkinson clarified what she remembers most fondly about her five years in the Playboy Mansion. Kendra emphasized that she was seeking neither romance nor marriage.
“I lived in the mansion for five years,” recalled Wilkinson. “I wasn’t there for romantic reasons or marital reasons like Holly [Madison] was. I had a great time. I had a blast. That’s what I lived for at that age. I had fun.”
Now 30, Kendra defended herself from cheating charges. While Wilkinson confessed that she was unfaithful to Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy, she also contends that she showed her respect for him by keeping her romances outside the mansion rather than bringing her hookups home with her.
“Look, I wasn’t trying to marry him,” pointed out Kendra. “I dated outside of him. I had respect by not going public with any of my relationships.”
Moreover, Wilkinson is adamant in stressing that she took her dates to hotels rather than have hookups at the Playboy Mansion.
“I swear on my two kids I never hooked up with one person in the mansion while being with Hef,” vowed Kendra. “I have that much respect. I would go to hotels down the street.”
Married to husband Hank Baskett since 2009, Wilkinson has endured multiple problems in her marriage. At one point, Hank allegedly had an incident with a transsexual woman, for example. And their issues haven’t ended.
Kendra revealed to Us Weekly that Baskett becomes jealous when she flirts with other men. Wilkinson recently enjoyed some flirty fun with Trey Songz.
“I was on Kocktails With Khloé, and Hank got a little jealous over Trey Songz!” admitted Kendra.”We were flirting a little bit. Trey Songz is hot! I’m sorry!”
However, Wilkinson isn’t really all that sorry, noting that she enjoys laughing with other men and flirting with them. But she isn’t going to cheat on her husband, she emphasized.
“I want to laugh again, and I’m a big flirt! I’m not ashamed of it. I’m not going to cross the line at all, but if I see a hot guy I’m gonna see if I’ve still got it!”
As for the incident that occurred about two years ago, Us Weekly notes that Baskett was unfaithful to Kendra with a transgender model. At that time, Wilkinson was eight months pregnant.
Kendra and Hank did therapy together and Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars last year to recover from the split in their relationship. Since then, Wilkinson revealed that she has learned that jealousy only hurts.
“Jealousy takes away from life, anger takes away from life, revenge, any of that s–t takes away from life,” pointed out Kendra.
While Wilkinson at one point fought constantly, she feels she has matured.
“I was a fighter. And at times I still have this fight in me. But at the end of the day I really, really want to be a lover. The best lover I can be. Every day is a battle of good versus evil.”
And although their marriage is now better, Kendra does not want any more children, she told E News.
“What are you on?” teased Wilkinson.
But it’s not that she dislikes children. Instead, Kendra revealed that she does not want to get pregnant again because she does not want to stop drinking.
“I love my alcohol,” admitted Wilkinson. “Any chance I get, I’m drinking.”
Life still has challenges for Kendra.
“Things are really raw right now,” she added. “I’m trying to move on in my life. I’m trying to put the past to rest, but things just keep popping up to just pull me back in…”
