There’s always that one person in boot camps that gets ganged up on and in Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars, it’s no other than former Playboy playmate Kendra Wilkinson.
Despite the participation of other controversial couples, everybody’s attention is on Wilkinson and her husband Hank Baskett. Instead of working on their own marriages, the other couples on the show are more interested in getting juicy details about Baskett’s controversial cheating scandal which involved a transsexual model.
Their fellow cast members are so determined to discover the real story that they even openly expressed their commitment. For one, Aubrey O’Day declared, “I’m going to definitely find out!”
The scandalous affair led to the couple’s falling out which was featured on their reality show Kendra on Top. When the issue broke, Baskett temporarily moved out of their home to keep their children out of the paparazzi’s watch. Wilkinson, on the other hand, struggled with trust issues and had to handle the children single-handedly.
Marriage Boot Camp co-star Tami Roman saw the connection and was quick to point it out.
“The fact that they’re here at Marriage Boot Camp implies that there’s some truth within some of those tabloid stories, and they’re actually here to work on it,” she said.
Perhaps Roman was so curious that she even confronted Baskett and candidly questioned him about the scandal. Flat out, she asked him, “I need to know, Hank. Is the transsexual story real?” However, Roman’s boyfriend, Reggie Youngblood, was quick to reprimand her. “You just nosey,” he told her.
Wilkinson did not comment about the particular issue but she admitted to having some challenges with her marriage. When they entered the boot camp, she was very defensive and it seemed like she already saw all the attention coming. In a recently released teaser of the show, Wilkinson made a threat.
“Our marriage is potentially over, so if I feel for one minute that someone is judging us and our problems, there’s going to be some drama going on.”
Marriage Boot Camp might have worked for the couple. Despite all the issues surrounding them, they appeared to be doing better on the taping of Kendra on Top’s third season. They also looked happy and in love during the premier of Dead Rising: Watchtower in Los Angeles on March 11. Wilkinson has also resumed sharing photos of her family on social media.
