Kendra Wilkinson: “I’ve Come Very Close to Divorcing” Hank Baskett for Cheating
Speaking with E! News’ Giuliana Rancic on an upcoming special interview, Beyond Candid With Giuliana: Kendra Wilkinson Baskett, the former Playboy Playmate recalls the night she found out about her husband’s cheating and why she chose to flush her wedding ring down the toilet.
“I get a call one night, from my agent, and he said to me, ‘Hey Kendra, you know there’s a rumor going around, about you and Hank’. The story is about the husband cheating on his wife with a transsexual,” Wilkinson says. “This happened five weeks after giving birth to my daughter, and here we are with our newborn baby, and little Hank, and we get a call saying, ‘Hank cheated on me with a transsexual?'”
“It would have been the same feeling, cheating is cheating,” the former Girls Next Door star responds when asked if she felt any differently about the fact that Baskett had cheated with a transexual woman. “I take my wedding rings off, right in front of him. I drop them in the toilet, he’s flipping out, and I just flush the rings down the toilet.”
Admitting that she still finds Baskett to be “a great father” to their two children, Hank Jr. and Alijah, Wilkinson says rumors that the couple have made up this cheating scandal to bump up ratings for their show, Kendra on Top, is more damaging than anything else.
“It is the most insulting thing out of all this, that people think that this is fate. I would never do this to myself,” she says. “You know, I would never degrade myself like that.”
She adds, “Overall he was denying the whole thing. I don’t know what to believe. Yes, I’m seriously mad at Hank because I know something happened. I’ve come very close to divorcing him already.”
