Biography

Since the dawn of the famous magazine and subsequent media empire, Playboy bunnies rarely received attention beyond their obvious physical attributes, but Kendra Wilkinson was a rare exception. While she started her career as one of Hugh Hefner's live-in girlfriends on the fluffy reality series "The Girls Next Door" (E! Entertainment, 2005- ), the vivacious blonde gradually endeared herself to television audiences with her genuine musings about puppies and the Olive Garden (her favorite Italian restaurant!), her unabashed love for sports, and her infectious laugh. Wilkinson, along with co-stars Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt, made the show one of E! Entertainment's highest rated reality shows and one of TV's guiltiest pleasures. Audiences lapped up the girls' unique lives and adventures, usually revolving around the posh parties held at their home, the infamous Playboy Mansion . The trio parlayed their "co-girlfriend status" into gracing the cover of Playboy magazine together three times and guest starring on numerous television shows and in films like the comedy spoofs, "Scary Movie 4" (2006) and "The House Bunny" (2008). Wilkinson extended her 15 minutes of fame after leaving the historic mansion by starring in her own reality hit series "Kendra" (E! Entertainment, 2009- ), about her new life as a bride-to-be to NFL star Hank Baskett, whom she married in June 2009 and had a child with in December that same year. While Wilkinson clearly found fame and fortune as a sexy siren, she also proved along the way that she had the personality and charm to become something more than just eye candy.
