See Her Tonight
Kendra Wilkinson on Celebrity Wife Swap
(9:00 PM EST, Lifetime)
You’ve probably noticed that the See Her Tonight column isn’t too crazy about reality shows–but some episodes simply can’t be ignored. Consider tonight’s episode of Celebrity Wife Swap, which features the worst possible deal for one poor candidate. Football pro Hank Baskett says goodbye to Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson, and then ends up living with irritating celebrity multi-mom Kate Gosselin.
That’s a horrible fate for a man, but Kendra Wilkinson was probably happy to temporarily change out her life isn’t having a good week. Her personal life was pretty much routinely attacked last year by our favorite muckrakers. The high point of Kendra’s 2013 was getting the ultimate honor of being cast as a UFC ring girl on an episode of The Mindy Project. (Which inspired us to check out our favorite ring girls from both America and Russia–along with Arianny Celeste.)
Anyway, we know that some people like to think of Kendra Wilkinson as Kendra Leigh Baskett nowadays. We know that Hank Baskett does–and he’s probably really, really grateful about that today. We can’t help but think of Kendra as the enduringly carefree Playboy model who kept Hugh Hefner hopping on The Girls Next Door. That was the kind of reality show that really held our interest. So does Kendra, and you’ll understand why after checking out this amazing gallery. Just be glad that we didn’t swap them out for pics of Kate Gosselin…
