It seems that Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are working things out despite their marital troubles. In fact, the two were seen in public on March 11 with Kendra wearing the ring that Hank offered to her during the finale of Kendra on Top. It was previously reported that Kendra flushed her original wedding ring down the toilet after she found out of Baskett’s infidelity. The couple became embroiled in a scandal after it was revealed that Baskett had an affair with transgender model Ava Sabrina London.
According to reports, Kendra told Baskett that she would only accept the ring if he told the truth about his affair. Despite their troubles, Kendra told Us Weekly that she’s willing to work things out with Baskett.
“All I can say is I believe Hank. I love Hank. And he’s proven to me that he’s worth forgiving and fighting for,” she said in the exclusive interview. “He was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and unfortunate things took place. He’s very gullible and naive.”
On March 11, the couple attended the red carpet premiere of Dead Rising: Watchtower, a movie that Baskett is involved in. The couple posed for the cameras, and even engaged in public displays of affection. The sight of Wilkinson wearing the “upgraded” wedding ring seems to show that they are indeed on their way to patch things up. After flushing her original ring (which was worth $50,000) down the toilet, the future seemed uncertain for the couple.
Kendra and Hank have been married since 2009. When news of Hank’s affair was made public, they decided to appear on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars to attempt to mend their marriage. And judging by their recent public appearance, it actually worked.
Kendra looked happier during the Dead Rising: Watchtower premiere. She looked gorgeous as well, wearing a black dress and a white coat along with a bejeweled necklace. As for the wedding ring, it featured a huge yellow diamond in the middle surrounded by sparkling white diamonds.
This is definitely a happy turn of events for the couple. While they were still in the process of working things out, Wilkinson told E! News that Hank has been undergoing therapy to sort out his issues.
“He’s in a lot of therapy right now. We’ve done some couples therapy. I don’t know if him going to therapy means he’s guilty. I am willing to forgive him, even if he did it,” she said at the time.
