Anyone who’s followed “The Girls Next Door” would know many things about Kendra Wilkinson, one of three girlfriends to Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner in the mid to late 2000s. She was discovered by Hefner in April of 2004 when she was 18 and he was celebrating his 78th birthday. Within a month, she moved into the Playboy mansion and utilized the immense media exposure to cultivate an enormous fan base.
A diehard fan of anything San Diego, Kendra was seen in the 2006 Playboy Special Edition “Sexy 100” as well as such diverse fare as appearances on “Entourage,” music videos for Nickelback and Akon, and a cameo in “Scary Movie 4.” She became engaged to Hank Baskett, a receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, the team that her mother was a cheerleader for a couple decades before. An entertainment figure who embodies the southern California rags to riches blonde who likes rap and football, Kendra’s post Hefner life will be chronicled in her own reality show, aptly named “Kendra.”

“Hef saved me, basically. He kind of took my life and made it into something.”
On her life prior to Playboy:
“I was living day by day, working as a dental assistant, living on Easy Mac and Spaghettios.”
