Kendra Wilkinson’s life has been turned upside down ever since husband Hank Baskett was let go by the Philadelphia Eagles and signed to the Minnesota Vikings. The reality TV darling opens up to Life & Style about her tough decision to take son, 11-month–old Hank, back to Los Angeles – alone.
Not having Hank around hurts,” Kendra says. “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.”
With Hank so far away, Kendra decided to return to the West Coast. “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.”
Hank’s decision to sign with the Minnesota Vikings — which would ultimately mean time away from his family— resulted in a fight. “It hurt a lot,” Kendra says. “When Hank left I felt lonely. He’s my everything. Nobody else can really fill that loneliness.” She admits she’s shed a lot of tears. “We cry. It’s hard, and we aren’t ashamed to cry.”
The former Playboy model says they’ll spend Christmas and Hank’s birthday together. “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. That’s all that matters to me.”
