Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett are 100% ‘together’ after he cheated on her


Over the summer, we found out that Hank Baskett had cheated on his then-pregnant wife Kendra Wilkinson. She was eight months pregnant when Hank allegedly (or not so much) fooled around (but did not have sex) with a trans model. The model then sold her story to the media, and Kendra temporarily threw Hank out of their home. When the story came out, Kendra had only given birth a few weeks beforehand. It was a huge mess. Oh, and to make matters worse, they were in the middle of filming Kendra’s new WE reality show, Kendra on Top. Reportedly, Kendra wanted to end the marriage and move on. But that was a few months ago. Now Life & Style’s sources claim that Kendra and Hank have reconciled.

Nearly two months after transsexual escort Ava London claimed she had an affair with Hank Baskett, Life & Style can exclusively reveal that Kendra Wilkinson has made the shocking decision to take her husband back.

“They are 100 percent together,” an insider confirms in the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now.

The reason? According to multiple insiders, Hank told Kendra that a friend of his lives in the same housing complex as Ava, and that the friend asked him to come over to her house to fix something. Once there, the former NFL player claims Ava made unwanted advances toward him — and that he felt violated afterward.

“The story is totally absurd,” the first insider tells Life & Style, adding that Kendra bought his excuse. Her friends don’t trust him, but there’s no convincing Kendra that Hank is lying. “Something isn’t right with her, it’s really worrisome.”

[From Life & Style]

Ugh. I don’t think Kendra is a genius or anything, but I thought she would have had more common sense than to believe a story like “she came on to me, I felt violated! It’s all her fault!” God knows, maybe the model did come on to him. But I remember reading the model’s story, and it sounds like Hank began their relationship online and he wanted to try something out in real life. There’s probably evidence of that too, Kendra. So, here’s my question: would you stay? Would you stay for the kids? Would you choose to believe Hank’s very questionable story? Ugh.

Here’s a preview for Kendra on Top.

    I feel like it’s such a bizarre situation that I would definitely leave.

  2. Miss M says:

    She grew up without her father. Maybe she doesn’t want this to happen to her kids.

    Ps: where is the ring? Did she recover it?

    • Diana says:

      And isn’t she perpetually at odds with the rest of her family? Not sure, but I thought I read she has a contentious relationship with her family. If that’s the case, I can see why it would be hard to leave — he’s a main source of support for her, and that can be tough to walk away from.

    • sally says:

      agreed. @diana she constantly has falling outs with her mother and @miss M her father wasnt a part of her life. I think he was abusive to her mom actually. She has definitely daddy issues, she was a stripper when she was very young and then dated hef.

  3. Rose says:

    My guess is none of the cheating happened. She needed a new reality show so they created something to get attention. I’m not buying it.

    • lisa says:

      this is it

      if your livelihood is based on some drama so some people watch your show, you will generate drama somehow, doesnt matter if it is true

      and if there is some truth to it, she used to live with a guy who lived with 2 other girls, maybe it isnt that big of a deal to her

      • Lilalis says:

        I think there’s a difference between sharing an old man who pays for your party lifestyle and doesn’t mean much to you besides that, and being cheated on by the man you love.
        That being said, after I watched the trailer for her show I agree that this was probably a publicity stunt. In that case, wow, what a horrible thing to do to your children.

      • cari says:

        I do buy that people create drama to keep viewers tuned in. However, I just can’t imagine that Hank would go along with this. I mean, a story about him having sexual relations with a transvestite?? He is a sports player in a very macho male sport. Could you imagine the teasing, ostracizing he would endure because of this? I just don’t think they would fake something like THIS.

      • TheOPriginalKitten says:

        Agree with Cari. I’m the first to call “publicity stunt!” with these reality tv show morons but I doubt this is the story line they would choose to go with.

      • lisa says:

        when they were on celebrity wife swap, i got the impression that hank wasnt the one driving this clown car

      • lucy2 says:

        I just started seeing commercials for her show with her “sobbing” about him cheating, so I could totally believe this is for the show, or at least has been heavily exaggerated and dramatized for it. It is a weird story, but I tend to think a “normal” person faced with that would ask to turn the cameras off and have some time, not use it all for a TV show.

      • Candy Love says:

        I agree it was a publicity stunt. Kendra show rating were in the toliet and she need somthing to bring the viewers back. My guess is they were like hey it work for Tori and Dean so why not do the samething, It not like they change much of the scrip from Tori.

        I have a feeling that we’re going to see a lot more of this kind of thing from Reality stars their not very bright so they will all copy each other if the formula works.

      • Tammy says:

        @Cari- Hank Baskett hasn’t played football in two years, at least. I doubt this is real, I don’t see him cheating on Kendra. Besides TMZ photographed them vacationing in Mexico last month & they looked pretty happy.

    • Anony says:

      I am seriously positive that this is 100% fake. They probably went with the transvestite story on purpose so that Hank could laugh about it with his friends behind closed doors and because it was more unusual and thus they knew it would get more press than the fake-cheating stories that people are bored of.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree. I actually laughed at this “to make matters worse, they were in the middle of filming Kendra’s new WE reality show, Kendra on Top. ” That wasn’t a coincidence! And now that they are done filming, everything is ok, shocking!

      The cheating story isn’t a “flattering” plot twist, but I think they modeled it after the Khloe/Lamar break-up and Tori/Dean. If you can’t find drama to film related to work, then it has to come from your personal life. Notice, the person who he cheated with never claimed they actually had sex, and to me, that seems like a way to get the drama without actually taking it to the extreme.

    The girl lived in a foursome in the Playboy mansion. I don’t think she has traditional views on marraige or sexuality and she may have only been upset that he got caught not who he was sleeping around with. It’s not something that I’d put up with but I’m not surprised that this may have blown over.

    • Tristan says:

      Spot on! She’s hardly been leading a sheltered, cloistered life prior to her husband’s shenannigans. However, its hilarious that she supposedly bought into his completely false excuse. That’s denial of the highest order. The guy sought out & paid a tranny for a bit of fun. He was most definitely not violated

    • Erinn says:

      I think there’s been a lot of talk about her hard partying and not acting like a married woman for years as well. Neither of them are saints in this mess.

  5. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I know from personal experience that you can convince yourself to “believe” absurd excuses if the consequences of seeing the truth are devastating enough to you. At least temporarily. Deep inside, she knows it’s b.s. And she’s angry. But salvaging the relationship is her first priority right now, for whatever reason, even if she has to lie to herself. Eventually, he will do it again. (Why shouldn’t he? There were zero consequences this time.) Eventually, she won’t be able to lie to herself anymore, and she’ll leave. It will hurt, but she will grow by leaps and bounds once she fights for and learns to love and respect herself. One day, she will look back and say that was the best thing I ever did. That’s when my life really began.

  6. als says:

    Didn’t Ciara reconcile with her cheatingwhilepregnant husband too?

  7. Talie says:

    All for the show. You’ll see, we’re a hair away from some morally bankrupt person staging a murder for reality fame.

    • melain says:

      Wow. I hadn’t thought of that, but I bet you’re right. Gotta up the ante at some point. Horrible people. And to think it all started with Truman Show and EdTv…for me anyway. That’s the first time I became aware of the reality show concept in that way..where a film crew follows some random around.

  8. Size Does Matter says:

    Geez, Kendra, he was only there to check out the plumbing. Give the guy a break.

  9. jwoolman says:

    From various things she has said over the years, I would guess she was angry only because he didn’t take her with him. Don’t treat her like a victim. Hank has done the heavy lifting in the relationship and with the first child. She has always made very odd decisions throughout, such as leaving him alone far far away while she scampered back to her friends in California to party for months. She’s always acted very selfishly, like a young teenager. I feel sorry for her because her mother is truly awful and that’s what she grew up with. But she doesn’t act full grown, she’s stunted somehow although I feel there’s a good person somewhere in there amidst the garbage. She doesn’t make me cringe like most of the “reality stars”. Hank’s parents were her first shot at normalcy in family relationships. Maybe she didn’t want to lose that. There are children to consider, she really isn’t capable of caring for them herself and Lord help them if her mother inserts herself into their upbringing. Or maybe it’s all an act for the show.

    What Hank did was weird but to be honest, it sounded to me (from the woman’s version of events) that he was curious about how being transsexual works. Not exactly a typical “affair”, he might not have thought about it that way himself (she still has her original equipment). Who knows what was going on at home, though. Kendra goes through very dark and angry periods and she really doesn’t seem to get the husband/wife thing. I don’t think her problem is just clinical depression, she’s missing something in her development beyond that. I’m glad they’re back together, although deep family therapy has been needed for years. If she could only turn off the cameras. Honestly, “reality” shows are evil and soul-destroying.

  10. Dani L. says:

    Eh, I’m on the fence about this one. I wouldn’t be the least bit shocked if this was a publicity stunt, albeit a strange one. True or not, they’re going to milk it for all it’s worth.

    • Anony says:

      I am totally convinced it’s fake. I imagine all his friends/family know but were sworn to secrecy because they need the show to have an interesting plotline.

  11. Cupcake says:

    I feel badly for the kids and I feel badly for any woman who discovers that her husband has recently been unfaithful while also trying to care for a newborn. Can you imagine reading a story like this about your parents if you googled them? Unless he’s father of the freakin’ year then I think she should divorce him immediately!

  12. JenniferJustice says:

    Ughhh! I can’t stand this trick! Why do people support her? She’s just another trashy ho that had sex with an old man for money and fame – how is that not prostitution? The word she uses the most – by far – is the F bomb because she doesn’t know very many words.

    If it’s true, that this all was just a publicity stunt, what does that say about both her and Hank as people and parents? I almost hope he really did cheat with Ava. At least that’s honest. To lie about it and cause a bunch of controversy about transexuals is really horrible. I have no respect for either of them and I feel sorry for their kids.

  13. Calabar says:

    I can’t judge any woman that decided to take or not take back a cheating man.

  14. Ginger says:

    Personally, I would probably leave if there was no trust left in my spouse. However, considering that they are married and have two young children that can really complicate things. I don’t find her decision all that shocking.

  15. Sadie says:

    Once a cheater, always a cheater. Learned through experience. Forgave my ex-husband for cheating for my child’s sake, and he turned around and did it again…gets tiring constantly having to look over your shoulder…..

  16. Reality Chick says:

    Cheating is the ultimate form of emotional abuse. Putting a few minutes of physical pleasure before your partner’s emotional well-being is sick and selfish. You cannot truly care about a person if you cheat on them, period.

    The question of whether he’ll do it again should not even exist. It’s irrelevant. Once is too much. He might be Father of the Year but that’s a separate issue. Kendra deserves a faithful partner. He can still be a good father without being in a relationship with her.

    Sick of all the excuses people make for staying with cheaters. And women wonder why (so many) men cheat? Maybe it’s because (so many) women are doormats. If you don’t value yourself, no one else will.
