Kendra Wilkinson Gets Support From Hugh Hefner Amidst Cheating Scandal

Kendra WilkinsonWe can't help but feel for Kendra Wilkinson and everything she's going through right now. She should be enjoying the newborn baby haze with her 7-week-old daughter Alijah, along with her husband Hank Baskett and their 4-year-old son Hank IV.

Instead she's dealing with a cheating scandal that is serious enough to bring all sorts of unlikely support out of the woodwork. First her estranged mom flocked to her side to help out, and now her ex-boyfriend Hugh Hefner is reportedly reaching out too.


The 29-year-old reality star got her start when she appeared on The Girls Next Door, which chronicled the lives of the Playboy mogul's three live-in girlfriends. Say what you want about Hugh Hefner and his lifestyle choices, it was obvious on the show that he really did care for these girls, and his recent actions certainly back that up.

A source told Us Weekly that the 88-year-old OG playboy has phoned Kendra multiple times since the news broke that her hubs may have cheated on her with transgender model Ava Sabrina London when she was eight months pregnant with their daughter.

"He told her to come to the Playboy Mansion any time," the insider said. "He's been supportive and hates that Kendra is going through this." Kendra lived in the mansion for four years while she dated Hefner, and the two reportedly parted on very amicable terms.

When the rumored affair first came to light in June, Kendra initially laughed off the reports, because why wouldn't she? It just seems too preposterous to be true. What kind of person cheats on their pregnant wife, let alone cheats on Kendra Wilkinson? And with a transgender model? This is definitely WTF territory.

Unfortunately, it's looking more and more like the rumors could be true. Kendra reportedly threw her wedding photos in the pool and her ring down the toilet after finding some suspicious charges on Hank's bank or credit card statements.

The couple's continued silence on the matter isn't exactly helping the scandal to dissipate either. It's hard to categorically deny something that happens to be true.

Best case scenario is the cheating didn't actually occur, but Kendra's still being put through the emotional wringer right now. At least she has the support of friends and family.

Why do you think Kendra and Hank aren't denying the affair?
