Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Kendra Wilkinson Describes Finding Out About Hank Baskett Cheating Rumor: “I’ve Come Very Close to Divorcing Him”

Via E!:

This summer has not been easy for Kendra Wilkinson Baskett.

The Kendra on Top star, who just welcomed her second child in May, has opened up to E! News’ Giuliana Rancic about her marriage in the wake of rumors that Hank Baskett, her husband of five years, had cheated on her with a transsexual woman.

A person who reportedly passed a polygraph test meant to ensure she wasn’t lying about her side of the story.
“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,” Kendra recalled during an exclusive sit-down for the upcoming interview special, Beyond Candid With Giuliana: Kendra Wilkinson Baskett.

“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?’ I just laughed about it,” the former Girls Next Door star continued, remembering the details of what ended up being a life-altering day.

Moreover, Hank was right there next to her when she got the first call, Kendra said.
She asked Hank, “‘Did you do something?’ And he says no, so I believed him.”

Not long after the cheating rumor first made headlines, Kendra started leaving the house without her wedding ring—because she had flushed it down the toilet.

“I went looking for evidence, I found nothing,” she told Giuliana, noting that she had also heard about photographs that made the rounds of Hank’s jeep supposedly parked outside the woman’s apartment.

Asked if the rumor involving a transsexual woman made her feel any differently than it if had been more of a run-of-the-mill story, Kendra said, “It would have been the same feeling, cheating is cheating. 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. “I’m yelling at him, saying, ‘Get out of my house!'” Kendra further recalled telling Hank—”he’s still a great father”—to take their kids to New Mexico with him to get them out of the media glare.

Speaking of which, Kendra also responded to those who have wondered whether she and Hank drummed up some drama for their show’s ratings, considering they kept shooting the new season of Kendra on Top throughout the summer.
“I wish we did,” she sighed. “It is the most insulting thing out of all this, that people think that this is fate. I would never do this to myself. You know, I would never degrade myself like that.”

As for Hank, “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.”

Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett Divorce Looming?

Oh snap! Could there be problems in the Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett union? Well Radaronline.com is reporting so!

Via our friends at Radaronline.com:

Kendra Wilkinson‘s husband of five years, Hank Baskett, abruptly left their Calabasas, Calif. home on Friday, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

The explosive development comes just one month after Wilkinson gave birth to the couple’s second child, Alijah Mary Baskett.

A reporter for The National ENQUIRER exclusively tells Radar that Baskett was spotted speeding away from the home he shares with Wilkinson in their gated community around 4 p.m. PT in his white Jeep, before landing at a local motel.

“Hank was wearing a royal blue NBA shirt and long khaki shorts. He got out of the Jeep with a woman who appeared to possibly be one of the couples’ baby nurses because she was wearing a medical type uniform,” the eyewitness tells Radar.

“They went into the office of the motel and then pulled the jeep around to the other side where their room was located. Hank appeared disoriented and downtrodden. At one point, he kicked the ground.”

Earlier in the day Baskett, 31, attended a Major League Gaming Competition in Anaheim with his father, Hank Baskett Sr.

“Mornin yall! @MrHankBaskettSr & I are on our way down to the #MLGAnaheim championships. Small road trip with pops=good times,” he tweeted.

Baskett returned to the couple’s home where something possibly ensued, triggering the hostile hotel check in.

Wilkinson, 29, posted an upbeat and positive Twitter message on Thursday — not realizing just a day later the father of her two children would leaving the home.

“Today will be a great day. I know it. #CarpeDiem #smile #happiness #love #positivevibes.”

After checking into the motel, the eyewitness tells Radar exclusively that he briefly came back out before quickly retreating back into the motel.

“An hour later, he emerged from the room but then returned back inside,” the source said.

Baskett and Wilkinson were married on June 27, 2009 and have two children together; Hank Baskett IV, 4, and Alijah Mary, 36-days.

Well I have two things to say about this. Number one, this makes me sad because I have always loved these two together. And secondly, if any celebrity relationship lasts it surprises the heck out of me. With that being said, I hope Kendra and Hank can keep it together.

Kendra Says Legalize Prostitution, Y’all.

Kendra says legalize prostitution. Because I’m sure you were wondering what Kendra was thinking about these days and her thoughts on the legalization of whatnots.

TMZ caught up with Kendra Wilkinson and hubby Hank Baskett at LAX on Thursday and decided to ask her thoughts on a prostitution ring that was busted in NY. Okay, actually they just told her and asked if she’d heard. Her thoughts were offered up voluntarily.

At first she said it was “good” and then she said it was “bad” and then she said it was “good but bad” or something to that effect- when told about the bust.

Then she said it should be illegal for consenting adults, before getting in an elevator and saying it was the “oldest profession…. in America.”

Watch the video for yourself HERE.

I’m thinking she meant “the world”… but as TMZ points out, it is indeed legal in some parts of the U.S. (such as in some counties in Nevada).

Oh, Kendra. I love you. I really think there should be more random airport Q&A sessions. There’s so much more to learn. Is Olive Garden still her fave “Italian Restaurant”?

What would you ask Kendra?

(As a side note, Kendra made a few headlines for her ‘I don’t give a crap’ sweatshirt pregnancy attire. No judgement here says me in my sweatshirt and pj pants.)

She may not seem like the shy type…especially when then music is on and the cameras are rolling…but Kendra Wilkinson says she’s “more conservative than people think.”

Hard to believe, right?
