Fans were stunned to learn that Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett split after nine years of marriage. However, the blonde beauty is seeing dollar signs from her pending divorce — as a source tells In Touch she has big plans to showcase what she’s going through. Kendra on Top has been at risk of getting cut by We TV, but this new drama could be the perfect ratings solution.
“Kendra thinks that her dealing with her breakup and dating again as she struggles as a single mom would grab viewers,” the insider shared. “A green light would give Kendra the ability to take care of the kids and pay out Hank, who is most likely going to file for spousal support.” The former couple wed in 2009 and are parents to two children — an eight-year-old son, Hank IV, and a three-year-old daughter, Alijah Mary.
This is hardly the first time Hank and Kendra publicly handled relationship issues. Back in 2015, they appeared on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars to deal with the aftermath of Hank’s affair with trans model Ava London. The former Playmate cracked jokes over the years about having her own issues with monogamy — and as of Friday, the couple said “fear” led to the demise of their relationship.
“I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways,” she confirmed on Instagram. “Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real. You will [probably] see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case — it just looks a little funny.”

Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways. I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because i did believe in forever, that’s why i said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way. We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile. Sometimes love looks funny. We are told to make sacrifices in life if it’s true love well in this case it’s me. I want to see happy Hank again… i miss that. Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real. U will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny. Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed. ❤️
