Kendra Wilkinson Talks About Her Stripper Days: You Won’t Believe How Much She Made

Before Kendra Wilkinson became famous as a Playmate on Girls Next Door, the reality star had a few not-so-glamorous jobs.

She worked at a pizza shop, as a dental assistant and then decided to test the waters as a stripper–which ultimately ended up leading her to fame.

But even without Hugh Hefner’s help, Kendra’s stripping experience had her rolling in the dough.

On Thursday night’s episode of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! the 29-year-old revealed that she made nearly $500K in six months on the pole.

On her very first night, she says she earned $4K for just sitting with a guy.  “When I was a stripper I didn’t know what to do, how to do it, I just walked around the pole, took my clothes off,” she said. “Money just came flying at you.”

The blonde bombshell originally decided to become a stripper because she thought it would be fun, easy money… And she was right.

“I’m just like a free spirit, I wanted to see how much money I could earn,” she explained to her castmates. “I like to party. I like to have fun.”

So she signed up.  Little did she know what it would lead to

“Registering to be a stripper and registering for a gun are the easiest two things you can do in American,” Kendra laughs.
