Kendra Wilkinson is a Playboy success story – with her own show, a hot husband and beautiful baby, she seemed to be on top of the world. But when her football player husband Hank Baskett signed with the Minnesota Vikings in September and moved the family from Philadelphia to the Midwest, Kendra had to put her foot down.
“Not having Hank around hurts,” she tells Life & Style magazine. “Moving across the country by myself makes me think of my own mom who raised me and my brother alone. Hank’s not going to be there forever, but with him not physically here, I’m a single parent now.”
Kendra and Hank haven’t broken up, but Kendra says she just can’t bear to be away from her friends and family while Hank plays.
“I fit in well in Philly, and I could relate to all the people, but the West Coast is my home. This is where all my family and friends are,” Kendra says (Hank signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in March, but was cut in September).
“I’m going to go back to the minus-2-degree weather to spend Thanksgiving, baby Hank’s 1st birthday and Christmas in a small one bedroom hotel room with my husband and son,” Kendra says. “That’s all that matters to me.” (PopEater)
