KENDRA BARES ALL Fans of the E! smash hit series “The Girls Next Door “fell in love with sporty Playboy beauty Kendra Wilkinson’s care- free spirit, infectious laugh, and down-to-earth nature. Now that she’s moved out of the world’s most famous bachelor pad and into her own delightfully chaotic world on “Kendra “as wife to NFL star Hank Baskett and mother to their newborn son, we’ve watched her hilarious antics as she adjusts to domestic life. But how much do we really know about the fun-loving star? In this humorous and optimistic, sometimes heartbreaking, but always unfailingly honest memoir, Kendra reveals the highs and lows of her extraordinary journey.

She wasn’t always the quintessential girl next door. Before she was a reality television superstar, Hugh Hefner’s girlfriend, or one of the most popular Playboy cover models ever, Kendra was an athletic tomboy whose father walked out on her family when she was a little girl. She grew into a rebellious teenager with a serious drug habit before she quit cold turkey and beat the odds to graduate from a high school that almost didn’t give her a second (or third, or fourth) chance.

Following her rocky teenage years, an out-of-the- blue phone call from Hugh Hefner changed everything. Kendra dishes candidly about life in the Playboy Mansion: the sex, the parties, the show, and even her relationships with her “Girls Next Door “costars–Hef, Holly, and Bridget. She tells the true story about how she and Hank met and built a relationship in secret while she was still Hef’s girl- friend and a public face of Playboy. Finally, she reflects on the slew of unexpected changes in the short space of a year that have brought her sliding into home from Playboy party girl to wife and mother with a blooming Hollywood career. If you think you’ve seen all of Kendra, think again. She’s only warming up. . . .

Girls next door: het blijft een guilty pleasure. In deze serie maakte ik kennis met Kendra: de jongste van het stel. Zij verliet de Playboy Mansion omdat ze verliefd geworden was op een ander. Daarover en haar leven tot dan schreef ze samen met Jon Warech een boek.

Ik wist niet goed wat ik moest verwachten, want in de serie leek ‘Kendra’ het wat dommere meisje. Toch ben ik blij dat ik haar boek gelezen heb. Het leest lekker vlot weg en het is heel mooi geschreven. Dat is waarschijnlijk wel de verdienste van Jon, maar ik moet het toch even melden. Het leest heerlijk weg. Jammer genoeg vind ik wel dat het karakter van Kendra niet altijd even mooi is. Ze is te trots op haar strippergeschiedenis en het feit dat ze haar liefje aan het lijntje hield vond ik niet erg lief. Nu ja, uiteindelijk was ze toen ook maar 19 jaar.

De verhalen van de Playboy Mansion zijn leuk, maar ook haar andere levensgebeurtenissen waren erg interessant. Voor mij is dit een aanrader voor een lekker wegleesverhaal 🙂

Girls Next Door: It stays a guilty pleasure. In this serie I got to know Kendra, the youngest of the bunch.  She left the Playboy Mansion because she fell in love with another. She wrote a book together with Jon Warech about her (Playboy) life.

I didn’t really know what to expect, because in the tv show Kendra seemed a little bit more stupid than the other girls. I’m glad that I read the book. I read quick and I loved the writing style. This is probably a merit of Jon, but I had to mention it. It’s a shame that I didn’t like Kendra’s character. She is too proud for the fact she was a stripper and that she left her boyfriend for the Playboy mansion for example. The book is filled with those situations. But Okay, she was only 19 at the time.

The stories happening in the Playboy Mansion are fun to read, but I was also intrigued by her other life experiences. For me this is a must-read as a quick read.
