Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson Reveal More Truths About His Sex Scandal a Year Later
It’s been a full year since news broke about Hank Baskett’s affair with a transsexual woman, but he and Kendra Wilkinson are still revealing more details about the incident that almost ruined their family.
In a new interview with People magazine, the couple is opening up about what really happened on that fateful day.
“I messed up,” an emotional Baskett tells the publication. “I put myself in a bad situation. And everything through me brought pain upon this family.”
Baskett revealed that he originally ended up at Ava Sabrina London’s house to buy marijuana. When he arrived, she answered the door naked while making out with another transgender woman. London then began fondling Baskett through his basketball shorts.
“I froze,” he explained. “I didn’t engage in anything. It was like a bank robbery. You never know when you’ll freeze. I don’t know if it was a couple of seconds or 15 seconds, because all I was saying was get out, get out, get out.”
Wilkinson’s husband says he was so humiliated by the incident he couldn’t open up about the truth to his family or friends.
“I was this big former football player,” he says. “I was the alpha male. I could do anything to protect my family but I couldn’t protect myself.”
Wilkinson admits she was completely blindsided when the news hit tabloids a few months later, which caused he to go ballistic — flushing her wedding ring down the toilet, kicking her husband out of the house and threatening divorce.
However, once Baskett finally revealed the truth, she became understanding and sympathetic.”Hank was very naïve and gullible,” she says. “He thinks everybody is his friend. That led him to the hell that we’ve lived.”
