Kendra Wilkinson to leave Girls Next Door and get reality spin off show


Kendra Wilkinson, the sporty and youngest member of Hugh Hefner’s triumvirate of blond 20 and 30-somethings, has long been rumored to be the weakest link . She’s not around as much as the other two and is thought to be fighting with them. The way Kendra explains it between taking bites of breadsticks and doing situps, the three women do get along, they just don’t spend a lot of time together and that’s how it works for them. The show’s fifth season, which is thought to be its last, premieres in October. Wilkinson, 23, has made hints that she’s ready to leave the mansion and set out on her own. She recently said that she’s less interested in partying and is interested in her future, which may include kids and a family, presumably not with Hef. She is thought to be in talks for a reality show which follows her follies outside the Playboy cocoon.

One of the Girls Next Door may be moving out and moving on after the E! reality show’s fifth – and likely last – season. “Kendra Wilkinson has been offered her own reality show about starting her life over again when she moves out of the Playboy Mansion,” an insider tells In Touch. “Hugh Hefner knows her time is coming.”

[From In Touch, print edition, September 1, 2008]

Earlier in the month we reported a rumor that a new brunette, a striking Ukranian model named Dasha Astafieva, was getting close to the 82 year-old Playboy magnate and threatened to upset the delicate balance between Holly, Kendra, and Bridget. Hef’s rep says it’s not true, though, and that Dasha lives in the Ukraine and doesn’t plan to move to LA. He’s probably grateful to pare it down to just two.

    I am so proud :-) of Kendra, she is moving on with her life. I have met her before and she is a cool 8) chick. I am glad she saw the light…i would hate for her end up like number 2 :!:

  2. Al says:

    This show has oddly captured my attention and Kendra especially is so endearing. I’m so glad for her! They would not have had such a good show without her. The other two girls are good people but they are so desperate. Bridget to be a model; Holly to be in control and be a creepy old married couple with Hef. :?

  3. Enonymous says:

    So whose actual idea was it to end the relationship, Kendra’s or Hef’s?

  4. vdantev says:

    NO!! It’s time to start slapping people- especially the audience. Family services should take your kids for watching that crap. :evil:

  5. AP says:

    The money is on Kendra. It was always on Kendra.

  6. Kelly says:

    If Kendra can make it on her own, with another dumb reality show, good for her. I’m serious too. Don’t end up as pathetic as Holly. That girl is still waiting around trying to get a piece of that fortune or what’s left of it. Hefner, is a “playboy” and he loves women, he’s been around the block too many times to fall prey to Holly’s scheme.

    I never exepcted to like this show – but I do. Heck, even my 65 year old mother likes it! There is something interesting in seeing the lives of these women. I am a professional working long weeks, with a good job, and I never thought it was acceptable (or an option) for me to earn my way through my looks and being sexy. Strangely, I find it fascinating to watch women who do! I don’t look down on them…it’s their life and they make it look fun. The girls are all very likeable.

    As for Kendra, she seems fun but I don’t know about how successful she will be on her own. I think she will fade into obscurity. I wish her luck though!

    see more recent post re: Denise Richards’ reality show being cancelled….what’s up with the no-talent folks getting these shows? hey, when’s my turn?

  9. hello says:

    I like her, but I don’t think she can hold a show on her own.

    I am a little worried for her though. She has made her love of jocks very clear, and having been a Hef girlfriend and pretty fit, I’m sure she thinks she has an edge over the other girl, but I just see her being taken advantage of over and over. I hope that doesn’t happen, but…

    yeah…i agree with “hello”. kendra’s not the brightest bulb in the box. she desperately wants to be a rapper’s girl or get in close with an athelete. most of these guys are ten times smarter than she is and will use her up in a heart-beat and move on.

  11. Kat says:

    STOP with all these stupid reality shows. Enough already !

  12. RubyRed says:

    I echo what every1 else has said about being suprised at my self for liking this show … but i do LOVE it !
    Wot surprised me the most was the skanky state of the mansion – i mean come on now Hef is a billionaire – whats up with that place it looks like a 70′s motel.
    I like Kendra the most, i think shes the most real, and i never once believed that she was his “girlfriend” – i think its sweet that she has expressed her gratitude so many times for Hef changing her life. Good luck with ur next show kendra!

  13. KELSEA says:

    KENDRA IZ HOTT I LOVE HER I THINK YOUR WRONG MY FATHER MET HER AND SAID SHE IS ACTUALLY MUCH MORE INTELIGENT THEN SHE COMES OFF IN FACT SHE IS THE SMARTEST OUT OF ALL OF THEM. I THINK EITHER WAY BY BRAINS OR BY BOOBS SHE WILL RISE TO THE TOP. WE WILL SEE MORE OF HER FOR SURE.. KELSEA 727 :roll:

  14. J Walker says:

    I hope she saved every penny she made off her looks because she isn’t making it on her mind.

  15. amy oz says:
