Sex Sells - Kendra Wilkinson Memoir
By Sophie Eager
Jul 7, 2010
Kendra Wilkinson has revealed in her new book the first time she met ex-boyfriend Hugh Hefner. Wilkinson, now 25, lived in the Playboy Mansion as one of Hefner's three girlfriends from the age of 18 for five years.
She is now married to NFL star Hank Baskett III, with whom she has a seven-month-old son. In Sliding Into Home, she reveals what happened the night she met the Playboy boss.
She said: "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."
She added: "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.'"
