More than six weeks after Hank Baskett was busted cheating on Kendra Wilkinson with Ava London, he's still in denial about the whole thing, sources say.
Even as his marriage shows no signs of repair, the former NFL pro wants to keep a lid on the controversy, “totally in denial" about the damage he's done.
Baskett was spotted out to lunch at Cecconi’s in L.A. July 31, smiling and proudly flashing his wedding ring; Kendra's has long since been flushed down the toilet.
Seriously, his scorned wife threw her wedding ring in the toilet.
Meanwhile, Kendra was seen out and about looking drained, haggard and showing signs of the stress she's been under thanks to the scandal.
It's reportedly even impacted Kendra's milk production.
“Hank is trying to act like everything’s fine,” an insider tells Radar. “He’s not bringing up the scandal with friends at all, and it seems like he’s totally in denial.”
“He’s been pretty much keeping to himself, and not responding to texts and calls from his closest friends,” the source went on. “People are worried about him.”
Hank's tryst with Ava London, a transsexual model, first surfaced back in April. He tried to pay her to keep quiet about it, but the story came out anyway.
Eventually, sources say he confessed to Kendra after a recording of the two talking leaked, and London took a lie-detector test regarding her allegations.
Having allegedly been kicked out of the house by Kendra, Baskett has been largely MIA until he surfaced in L.A. recently, acting totally nonchalant.
There's only so long he can keep up that facade.
