Wilkinson is the older of two children. Her mother, Patti, was
originally from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and had been a cheerleader

community in central San Diego, and attended Clairemont High School,
from which she graduated in 2003. She played softball for six years
with the Clairemont Bobby Sox. When she left high school she began
working as a glamour model, and also briefly worked as an office
assistant for a dentist.
Wilkinson met Hugh Hefner at his 78th birthday party in April 2004,
where she had been hired to be one of the "painted girls": women who
are completely nude except for painted-on accessories. Apparently he
had seen her picture, shot by photographer Kim Riley, on a fax machine
at the Playboy Mansion and wanted to know who she was. Shortly after
they met, Hefner asked Wilkinson to be one of his girlfriends and he
moved her into the Playboy Mansion. Wilkinson has made several cameos
on different programs such as Las Vegas and Entourage. She also
appeared in Akon's music video "Smack That". While on the set of the
video, Eminem poured a bottle of water on her head, sparking an
altercation. The incident was discussed on The Girls Next Door .
She also showed her creative side as a rapper on MTV's Celebrity Rap
Superstar which debuted on August 30, 2007. Wilkinson rapped to
Ludacris’ "Fantasy", apparently in response to the question asked by
the show's host, "Can Kendra move her mouth as fast as she moves her
booty?" . She went on to take second place, losing to Shar
Wilkinson's stated career goal is to become a massage therapist or
sports announcer. In December 2005, she became a regular "blogger"
columnist at the website of the Philadelphia Eagles , a team for
which her mother had been a professional cheerleader.

Door, which follows the lives of Hefner's current girlfriends.
Wilkinson lives in her own room in Hefner's mansion with her dogs,
Raskal and Martini. In 2006, she appeared in the Playboy Special

Wilkinson owns two dogs, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Raskal and a
Jack Russell named Martini.
On August 13, 2008, the Wall Street Journal front page reported that
Wilkinson was the Italian restaurant chain Olive Garden's "Biggest
Celebrity Fan". She, it was noted, has described Olive Garden's
cuisine as "my soul food". The newspaper emphasized that her repeated
enthusiastic public endorsements of the family restaurant are genuine,
personal and are not tied to any payment from Olive Garden. In fact,
the company was reported as viewing Wilkinson's endorsements with
"mixed feelings" which it was reluctant to comment on .
On September 22, 2008, the International Business Times reported that
Wilkinson was engaged to Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank
Baskett. Wilkinson denied being engaged in a blog entry on her
official MySpace page , but on October 7, 2008, in an interview on
Chelsea Lately, admitted she was in a relationship with
Baskett. On November 6, 2008, E! Online announced Wilkinson and
Baskett were engaged, after he proposed the previous Saturday, with a
wedding planned for June 2009.
