Kendra Wilkinson And Hank Baskett Considering An Open Marriage?

8/25/2013 6:47pm EDT
Reality couple Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are reportedly considering opening up their marriage.

The second season of reality show "Kendra On Top", which airs on WE TV, is set to kick off on September 13, and in the trailer for the show's upcoming season premiere episode Kendra and Hank question their relationship.

When the former Girls Next Door star says, "I shouldn't even be married," her husband replies, "We should just be single and live together, like they all say" (we have no clue who "they" are).

That prompts Kendra to get serious and add, "So you're asking for an open marr...

Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett
Playboy tycoon Hugh Hefner's ex-girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson has revealed her battle with depression since becoming a mom led to severe suicidal thoughts.

"The Girls Next Door" star and former playmate, who has twice attempted to kill herself and was once hospitalized for depression, tells In Touch magazine her mental problems almost ended her marriage to football star Hank Baskett.

She says, "I felt devastated, helpless - like I was in a black hole.... I was a mess and a wreck... I felt like nobody cared about me anymore. I had so much anger inside.

"I even thought about harming myself. ...

Saturday afternoon Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett, star of her self-titled hit E! series 'Kendra,' spent the afternoon partying with girlfriends Holly Madison and Jessica Hall at WET REPUBLIC at MGM Grand. The bubbly reality TV darling was surprised by the hundreds of fans patiently waiting for her arrival.

Kendra Wilkinson Celebrates Her Birthday In A Silver Strapless Dress

We spotted Kendra Wilkinson celebrating her 26th birthday at Pure Nightclub inside Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, yesterday.

Wilkinson, who had a baby boy in December 2009, says baby number two may have to wait. She recently told Starpulse: "I have my second book coming up. I have my fourth season of my show. You know that would be just a little bit too much to take under my belt – literally."

She most recently appeared on "Dancing With The Stars." Season four of "Kendra" will start in September.

'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Crowns Hines Ward MVP Of The Ballroom

5/25/2011 8:09am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
Us audience members were officially cut off Tuesday morning. No more voting for "Dancing With The Stars." But the judges still had another set of scores to give on Tuesday’s finale, and we got three hours of show to sit through. Three hours. They had to make up for Monday’s show only being an hour long, I guess.

Luckily the first hour was a repeat, so I don’t have to write five million extra words for a third of the show. Then the opening sequence and voice over for the real show kicked in, and were especially dramatic. That is saying a lot when talking about this show. I a...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Seven Gives Our Celebrities Double Duty

5/3/2011 9:29am EDT
Romeo Miller Chelsie Hightower
Only 6 stars are left from the original 11 that started this season out, and this is the first week that we are throwing more than one dance at them. We get team dances, and individual dances, and we have a guest judge this week, Donnie Burns, a highly-decorated Latin dancer. This is a man who Karina called the “ballroom god” and Maks said was ballroom dancing’s Tiger Woods.

The team dances were the Cha-Cha-Cha, and the teams were chosen by the season’s highest scorers, Chelsea and Hines. Chelsea picked Ralph and Romeo, while Hines picked Kirstie and Kendra. Hine’s team seemed a bit... ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Six Results: Chris Jerico Is Taken To The Mat

4/27/2011 9:22am EDT
DWTS Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke eliminated
Guilty Pleasures Week brought out some of the best performances so far this season, Romeo and Chelsea grabbing the top spots, and deservedly so. It’s still one of the tightest seasons I have seen, though, and I’m never sure who’s leaving each week. This was the first week, however, that if anyone in the judges’ bottom four except Kendra was going home, it was going to sting for me.

Before the results show, we got a “The Road To The Finals” one hour special sort of episode, which was mostly a time filler, but offered some insights to each of the stars still in the competition. S...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Six Performances See Another Tumble And Bring Out The '10' Paddles

4/26/2011 9:29am EDT
DWTS Guilty Pleasures Week
On the heels of Classical Week’s success, last week's American Week was a big mess. This Monday I was hoping we’d get a more coherent show with Guilty Pleasures Week, and maybe some good old nostalgia. I was really glad to get a little bit of both.

Right off the bat we got a performance of “MmmBop” from Hanson, our musical guest for the episode. Yes, Hanson. 1997’s Hanson. Yikes. But I say ‘yikes’ in an oddly affectionate way, even if I was well beyond teenybopper age when they hit. Speaking of which, when did those boys grow up?!

Moving on to the dancing...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Five Sends Petra Packing

4/20/2011 9:27am EDT
American Week performances were hit and miss, so I’m glad we’re putting that behind us, and I’m looking forward to next week’s “guilty pleasures” theme. But of course there is the business of who has to go home to deal with before we can move on. Let’s take a look at where Monday’s judges’ scores left us:

1. Hines and Kym - 27
2. Chris and Cheryl - 26
2. Chelsea and Mark - 26
2. Romeo and Chelsie - 26
3. Kirstie and Maks - 23
4. Ralph and Karina - 22
4. Petra and Dmitry - 22
4. Kendra and Louis - 22

We started out this results show with the fates of the top scorer, Hines, and Kirstie, w...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Five Salutes The Red, White And Blue

4/19/2011 10:00am EDT
DWTS American Week
It’s American Week on ‘Dancing With The Stars’, and Monday was a night of odd music choices mixed with dances that didn’t fit them. As a result, there were a lot of awkward performances, and mixed reviews. I think they may have started out with a good idea for a theme, but didn’t carry it out very well. After last week’s classical theme, it was a definite step down. But the show must go on, and ‘Dancing’ has always got to have a gimmick, right?

Ralph Macchio (Actor) and Karina Smirnoff
Dance: Samba
Scores: 8, 7, 7
Len said that he was disappointed in Ralph’s inconsistency. He said it w...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Four Elimination Is 'The Heart Of The Show' Sugar Ray

4/13/2011 9:28am EDT
Classical Week performances are over and done, but ‘Dancing With The Stars’ still had last night’s results show to milk the orchestra. It wasn’t quite as effective with Jennifer Hudson taking Katherine Jenkins’ spot at center stage, but that wasn’t really what mattered. What mattered is who the heck was going to go home. This was one of those weeks that it seemed like it could have been anyone.

In fact, the first couple declared to be in jeopardy was sort of a shock based on judge scores, but even then I still wondered if it really could have been their time. I’m getting ahead of mys...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Four Gives Us Classics & Another Leader Board Shift

4/12/2011 9:20am EDT
DWTS Classical themed week
Tchaikovsky, Rota, Bocelli, Williams... It’s Classical Week on ‘Dancing With The Stars’, and the band has gone and multiplied into a 46 member orchestra. On top of that, we had some amazing guest stars, like violinist David Garrett and singer Katherine Jenkins. I’m not a huge fan of classical music, but I enjoy it enough, and this was one of the best theme nights I can remember in recent seasons.

The stage was really quite amazing to see, and it brought a whole new element to the show. Last season they did Acoustic Week, and that was uneventful in my eyes, but this was a game changer. ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Review: Week Three Elimination... Wendy Williams

4/6/2011 9:18am EDT
Monday night we laughed and cried, and oohed and aahed, among other cliche reactions, over the emotional stories our stars told with their dances. We collectively cringed over Kirstie and Maks’ fall, then talked about it all day long. We discussed how the scores have been all over the place this season... and then talked about Kirstie and Maks some more.

Look, you fall down on ‘Dancing’, and you’re going to have to talk about it and hear about it until you have a nervous breakdown. It’s just the way it is.

Here’s a run down of where we stood after Monday’s performances:

1. Hines and K...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Three Performances Get Emotional

4/5/2011 9:20am EDT
With Mike and Lacey gone, we now have ten stars standing, some good, some bad, some ridiculous. Some of them are all of those things at the same time, and this week they get to tell us their personal stories. Each star picked a song that they had an emotional connection to, and had to express it in their dance.

It wasn’t as silly as I thought it was going to be.

The outcomes were a little surprising, most especially because they gave us a brand new pecking order at the end of the night. Again. This season is shaping up to be unpredictable. Don’t these people realize that they’re toyi...

'Dancing's' Kendra Wilkinson: Don't Pick Me To Win

Kendra Wilkinson may be the second of Hef's former girls next door to compete on Dancing with the Stars, but don't think she turned to Season 8 alum Holly Madison for pointers. "I'm very stubborn like that," Wilkinson tells "If anyone tries to tell anything to me, I shut them up immediately. There's only one piece of advice I'll take and that's from [partner] Louis [van Amstel]." So how are rehearsals going for the self-proclaimed tomboy with zero dance experience?

Kendra Wilkinson may be on the cover of the new issue of Playboy magazine, but what ten lucky readers find inside may be sweeter than that. Hugh Hefner is playing the role of Willy Wonka in the December issue by giving away "Golden Tickets" to his annual "Midsummer Night's Dream Party" at the Playboy Mansion next year.

Playboy's editorial director Jimmy Jelenik tells Pacific Coast News, "This is the first time we've literally swung the doors open to the public. The average reader will go home with stories they can't tell their wives and girlfriends but will last forever. Hef thinks of this...

Hugh Hefner's ex-girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson has explained her new Playboy cover shot and nude spread, insisting it's two years old.

The former Playmate has been open about her decision not to pose for the men's magazine again now she's a mom, married to football player Hank Baskett - and she's concerned her fans may think she has been lying to them.

What a difference a year can make! Following the most tumultuous twelve months of their relationship, Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett have emerged stronger and more committed than ever to one another. From cross country moves in pursuit of Hank’s football dreams to sharing with fans the truth about her troubled youth, to finding the proper balance between raising baby Hank and her very demanding career, Kendra has remained steadfastly determined to "do it all."

Pamela Anderson Poses For Playboy Again, Pays Homage To 'La Dolce Vita'

Pamela Anderson
Pamela Anderson has stripped for her 11th Playboy cover - channeling "La Dolce Vita" siren Anita Ekberg at the sexy shoot.

The "Baywatch" bombshell landed her first Playboy cover way back in 1989, and was named Playmate of the year in 1990. And now, 20 years later, Anderson is baring all again for the January 2011 issue, cavorting naked in a pool as an homage to Ekberg's infamous scene in Rome, Italy's Trevi Fountain with Marcello Mastroianni in the 1960 movie classic.

On his page, Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner writes, "Pamela Anderson is in the (Playboy) Mansion swimming pool, po...

Are Sex Tape Stars Karissa Shannon & Sam Jones III Trying To Tell Us Something?

10/4/2010 9:30pm EDT
Karissa and Kristina Shannon
Playboy model twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon got the royal treatment Saturday at Sugar Factory at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino for their 21st birthday. The "Girls Next Door" stars (Kristina in the red dress, Karissa in pink) sucked on the treat shop's signature "Couture Pops" and shared birthday cakes and red velvet cupcakes. Karissa, as usual, had her boyfriend Sam Jones III in tow.

But one shot that Karissa and Sam posed for has us wondering if she might be pregnant. Jones has his hand on her tummy while she holds up a peculiarly small t-shirt.

We hope...

Karissa and Kristina Shannon Turn 21; Want Attention

Shannon Twins
Playboy model twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon spent their 21st birthday hamming it up for cameras at the Greenhouse nightclub in New York City's Soho district Friday night. The pair, both former girlfriends of Playboy boss Hugh Hefner and stars of "The Girls Next Door," dined out at Via De Mille before heading to their party.

The girls weren't camera-shy at all during the champagne-fueled event, drinking bubbly from the bottle and opening their gifts.

Karissa, the object of a recent sex-tape controversy with boyfriend Sam Jones III, received a pair of $1500 Christian Louboutin boots fr...

Karissa Shannon Pretends To Be Upset Over Her Sex Tape Leak

A noticeably distraught Karissa Shannon went to dinner with boyfriend Sam Jones III at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood on Sunday. The Playboy Playmate cried on a bench outside the venue, covering her face with her hands.

Did the couple have a spat? Perhaps, but the real juicy gossip is they are trying to stop the release of a sex tape which stars them both. It's currently in the hands of Vivid Entertainment Ltd., which is claiming the content is "extremely erotic."

The two "stars" have consulted their lawyers in a bid to stopping the company from profiting from their steamy sex lives.

Karissa Shannon's little red dress left little to the imagination when we spotted her leaving La Vida nightclub with boyfriend actor Sam Jones III after attending an OK! Magazine party.

You know that line between sexy and slutty? She crossed it.

The 20-year-old told at the party, "I’m working on a new book right now. It’s an autobiography. It’s going to include things about life at the mansion."

It was previously reported Karissa would be spilling some juicy details about another one of Hugh Hefner's exes--Kendra Wilkinson. But that's not entirely true. She explained,...

Bridget Marquardt Brings Her Inflated Chest To Las Vegas

Bridget Marquardt
Former "Girls Next Door" star Bridget Marquardt cooled off at Azure Luxury Pool in Las Vegas on Saturday. Does the exotic bejeweled bathing suit ever go out of style?

Hugh Hefner's former girlfriends are definitely clinging to their 15 minutes of fame. Holly Madison, who lives in Las Vegas, is constantly promoting herself and various products at events in Sin City for a paycheck. Wonder if she'll be upset that Bridget's now treading on her ground. "This is MY corner, b$#@&!"

After all, Bridget hasn't done anything since she had that Travel Channel show, "Bridget's Sexiest Beaches," that ...

Former playboy model Karissa Shannon showed off her black bra in a semi see-through white tank top at Katsuya in Hollywood on Tuesday. She was dining with her boyfriend Sam Jones III.

Karissa is rumored to have made a girl-on-girl sex tape with Heidi Montag of "The Hills" fame. Karissa is also writing a book in which she takes aim at new mom Kendra Wilkinson.

But the real question is, if there's no sex tape - as it appears there may not be - then when are Karissa's 15 minutes of fame over?

Holly Madison
Holly Madison hosted the weekly poolside bikini contest at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, and for a change she wasn't the one in the bikini. Holly was accompanied at the Pleasure Pool by her two "Holly's World" cast mates, Angel Porrino and Laura Croft; who now also appear at every event Holly does. It's like a three-for-one deal they've got going.

Robin Leach of Las Vegas Weekly (yes, that Robin Leach) reports that the girl in the green bikini, Stormi (above, with Holly), was the big winner this weekend. The contest has been going on weekly over the summer...

Playboy Playmate Of The Year Battle: 2010's Hope Dworaczyk Vs. 2008's Jayde Nicole

Hope Dworaczyk and Jayde Nicole
We got a glimpse of Playboy's 2010 Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk's bra under her black blouse after she enjoyed a night out at the My Studio nightclub in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The curvy brunette was joined by fellow Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole, who showed off her long legs in a white minidress.

Hope was named Playboy's 2010 "Playmate of the Year" back in May. She was reportedly honored and shocked by the designation.

Jayde was only the third Canadian Playmate of the Year and ended a 26 year drought when she was given the title in 2008. The other two: Dorothy Stratten (1980)...

Pam Anderson Is Looking Pretty Old At 43 - Is She Still Hot Or Not?

No wonder Pam Anderson is wearing gigantic sunglasses. She celebrated her 43rd birthday at Tao Beach in Las Vegas on Saturday, and even though she showed some leg, it doesn't distract from the major amount of makeup she's wearing or her puffy lips.

Former "Girls Next Door" star Kendra Wilkinson reveals Pam is a big inspiration. Kendra thought bigger breasts would mean a fatter wallet during her pole dancing days in San Diego.

She wrote in her new memoir 'Sliding Into Home,' "Pamela Anderson was on the radio talking about saving animals or something, and all I could think about were her bo...

Holly Madison shook her little bunny tail and flashed her not-so-little cleavage at the 50th Anniversary of the Playboy Club at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday.

The original club closed in 1988, but Holly's ex, Hugh Hefner, opened the new club in Vegas in 2006.

Holly's new reality TV Show, "Holly's World" is premiering on E! June 13. It will follow the adventures of the blond beauty as she lives, works and plays in Las Vegas.

Holly quickly made a big name for herself as the sexy lead in the successful stage show "Peepshow." The six nights a week performances have not kept Holl...
