Kendra Wilkinson made an appearance on the Today show to promote her book “Sliding Into Home” that talks about her battle with drugs and her sex life. Read more and see video of Kendra’s Today show interview below.
Kendra Wilkinson spoke to Kathie Lee and Hoda, saying that her drug use began at age 13 when her father left. Kendra revealed she became a stripper before she moved into the Playboy mansion at 18.
Kathie Lee asked about Kendra’s book saying, “From what I read, you just felt completely out of place at the mansion. And you write in pretty graphic detail about what those nights were like with Hef. Has he read this?”
“That was in the beginning,” Kendra said. “I’ve always loved him. But going into it, I was 18 years old, a very free spirit, but right when I got there, I didn’t really know what was going on.”
Here’s an excerpt from Kendra’s book:
The whole evening, Hef and I kept staring at each other. It wasn’t a physical attraction for me, but he was just so cool. The way he acted and the things he said were unlike anything I had seen or heard before.
At the end of the night, Hef came up to me, gave me a key, and asked me to stay the night. I couldn’t — mainly because Zack was sitting outside the Mansion in his car, but beyond that, I felt that being there that night was a job, and I wanted to keep it that way. Clock in. Clock out.
I gave him the key back, but told him I would see him again soon.
“Will you be my girlfriend?” he asked again before I left.
Staring into his eyes, I didn’t see a man four times my age with ten times more girlfriends than most. Even though I hardly knew him yet, I saw a sweet man who made me feel really good about myself — a true gentleman. It was weird but in my heart, I felt like he was someone I could possibly trust.
“So, will you?”
There was only one thing I could say: “Um, okay.”
