Kendra Wilkinson remembers saying “I am killing myself”
HollywoodNews.com: Kendra Wilkinson has a very unique story to tell. She spent her teenage years at the Playboy mansion and is now married to NFL star Hank Baskett and just had her first baby. Her new memoir book entitled “Sliding Into Home” comes as honest as it gets.
Kendra told Popeater that the book “is for the people who follow me and want to get to know me more. I had a true Hollywood story and a lot of people were touched by it. I wanted to go a little deeper than that and go into more detail.”
She’s admitted a few times to her childhood drug abuse and is going to do everything to make sure Hank Jr. doesn’t follow in her footsteps. She says, “I’m a very strong person. He has two great loving people raising him. He has nothing but love around him. We’re going to guide him in the best way we can. The biggest thing is communication, it’s learning from home. Life shouldn’t be all by the book — you need to go off course. When the time comes to discuss this stuff, then the time comes. You can’t plan it or go by the book.”
Kendra shares how her childhood, as dark as it may be, shaped her to who is she is today. She says, “Your childhood makes you who you are in the future. That’s why they say children are your future. You’ve got to make sure children have a chance to be kids and go play. When they’re out there playing forts, they have those memories. When you’re doing stupid stuff like drugs like me, I was remembering my own childhood and I was saying, “What am I doing right now? Here I am destroying all my youth, all my fun, the person I should be right now. Here I am killing myself. This is not me right now. Here I am doing drugs and I could be playing soccer, which I love to do.”
Kendra’s honesty is exactly why she has so many fans.
