Fresh off her somewhat surprising elimination from Dancing With the Stars, Kendra Wilkinson spoke to THG yesterday about her experience on the hit show.

Kendra says that despite lasting seven weeks on DWTS, she had a feeling her run was coming to an end this week, and is even a little relieved that it's over.

After all, girl misses her Hank. And baby Hank.

In addition to all things DWTS, Wilkinson also discussed the new season of Kendra, some of her secrets for staying in shape when she's not in the ballroom (notably Ab Cuts), her Mother's Day plans and even the NFL lockout situation.

Watch our exclusive interview with her here:

Kendra Wilkinson was feeling insecure again on Dancing With the Stars.

Fortunately, Luca Baricchi came in to assist, sidling up to her all sexy-like to help her “find the body.” Not that having a body has been Kendra's issue, but hey.

Bruno said Kendra never looked so elegant and ladylike, but still sexy, so apparently Luca did the job. Carrie Ann also praised Kendra for being sophisticated.

While everyone agreed that technically, she could've been more crisp, K-Dubs earned a 31 (out of 40) and a good chance of surviving tonight's results show:

Kendra Wilkinson was finally in her element last night.

With the right routine and encouragement from partner Louis Van Amstel, K-Dubs finally released her inner beast on Dancing With the Stars, letting loose with a sexy Brazilian party samba that was as uninhibited as her outfit was revealing.

For once, her stripper background came in handy:

"The more you gyrated, the more I palpitated," said Len Goodman, who just received the birthday present of his life in the form of a Kendra Wilkinson striptease.

The job has its perks. Tom Bergeron could only add, "Nicely done." It was, but will it be enough to get her through to the next round? What do you think?

Kendra Wilkinson failed to impress again on Dancing With the Stars, finishing tied for last Monday (albeit with two other couples, and a decent score).

Decked out like a figure on a Fourth of July cake, the E! star looked less than inspired and more like she was simply trying to get through the foxtrot.

She's an amateur, of course, so no one expects her to be perfect.

But you wonder if she's still hurting from last week, after which she said she felt belittled and embarrassed by Carrie Ann Inaba. Watch and see:

Will Kendra go home, or will fans come out in force to save the Playboy model out of sympathy and support? We'll find out by the end of the evening.

According to Kendra Wilkinson, elegance is what you make of it.

As such, she doesn't appreciate Carrie Ann Inaba's critiques.

"We have our own definition," Wilkinson said in response to the Dancing With the Stars judge's remark that she has been "afraid of elegance" on the show.

K-Dubs said she felt "like giving up" last week but that "elegance is what [my husband] Hank sees, not what Carrie Ann sees. That's what I care about."

"Another woman telling me about elegance eats away at my ego," she said. "I'm a huge Carrie Ann fan, and she's [usually] so sweet, but that comment ..."

"I just felt belittled at that moment and embarrassed."

Kendra Wilkinson makes it clear that she does take her time on the show seriously, but at the same time, not too seriously. She is there to have fun.

"This is great, and a time of my life I will look back on, but it's not my life," she said. "My life is my family memories. That means the world to me."

"Why am I listening to people I don't care about? I'm out here to be Kendra and dance and shake my butt – not to be a professional dancer."

Who will win Season 12 of Dancing With the Stars?

Sometimes you just have an off night. For Kendra Wilkinson, that night was last night. Coming in last with 18 points, was it her last on Dancing With the Stars?

"The scores suck," the reality star lamented afterward. "That's the way it goes. I didn't do a perfect job and I got the scores I got, and that's the way it is."

Kendra admitted to having mixed feelings about the routine, a Viennese waltz with partner Louis van Amstel, before it even got underway Monday.

"I didn't feel comfortable but when the music started I did feel comfortable," she said. "I felt in place. I felt like I did everything I could have done."

"I had three missteps," Kendra Wilkinson said. "It sucks because I didn't mean to do it. It just happened. But I moved on from it and I finished it."

Will she be eliminated this evening, or will the fans help carry her through? Has she connected well enough with the audience? What do you think?

Kendra Wilkinson was in her element last night.

While she was uncomfortable at first acting sexy with Louis Van Amstel in rehearsal (a dubious claim from the former Girls Next Door star) she got over it.

Len felt that there was some "unnecessary gyrating," but was still impressed with her improvement in footwork. Bruno, meanwhile, felt it was hot and arousing.

Hey, why mince words? "There is nothing wrong with a good stripper," the judge added, encouragingly. It was strong technically, as well, earning 23 points.

Kendra Wilkinson was a mess before her debut performance on Dancing With the Stars, and it showed. But with that under her belt, she's confident in her ability.

Performing the cha cha live made her "a bundle of nerves," said Kendra, despite the fact that she's nude naked, worked as a stripper and starred on reality TV.

Her score of 18 put her in the middle of the pack after the Season 12 premiere. No one was eliminated this week, with the first cut set for next Tuesday.

Pullin' Her Close

"In the cha cha you're not supposed to bend your knees but I had to or I would have passed out," Wilkinson said. "I was so nervous, I barely took a breath."

What worried her? The same thing that would freak out anyone - performing for a huge audience. "I have a fear of the stage, a fear of the crowd," Kendra said.

"[The bright lights of the ballroom] made me dizzy. But I pulled it out and the fact that Carrie Ann [Inaba] said I didn't miss one step made me feel so good."

Considered the odds-on favorite going in, Kendra Wilkinson's Dancing With the Stars debut did not meet the high expectations set for her last night.

We imagine she'll only get better, and that she'll have the fan support (Hugh and his thousands of bunnies alone should help) to last a while at least.

Boasting that she's "got moves for a white girl," the reality star with the stripper past danced the cha cha with partner Louis van Amstel Monday.

She promised a hot routine - "classy hot, not club hot" - but lukewarm may be more accurate. The judges had mixed reviews for K-Dubs. Here's why:

Kendra finished with 18 points, well back of leaders Ralph Macchio and Kristie Alley. You can watch ALL of last night's DWTS routines here on THG!

Not only is Kendra Wilkinson perhaps the biggest name on Dancing With the Stars this season, she's the odds-on favorite to take home the Mirror Ball trophy.

That's according to Bodog (dot) com, which puts Kendra chances of winning the DWTS title at 3:1. You can also get the Knicks -12 vs. Cleveland tonight, FYI.

Kristin Cavallari, Mark Ballas

Seriously, you can bet on Dancing With the Stars Season 12 pairings. Ralph Macchio (7:2) and Disney star Chelsea Kane (4:1) also have decent odds.

Favorite or underdog, Kendra just wants to get out on the floor.

"It couldn't have come at a more perfect time in my life," Kendra says. "I'm almost back to my pre-baby body so I'm excited for all the costumes! I've always loved the show, so its really cool I get to be on it. I have a competitive streak in me."

"I'm so excited to get out there and compete!"

Also excited? Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Not only is he happy to be back in his element after The Bachelor: Ukraine experience, but he's probably so pissed that he's not among the three favorites to win. He loves a chip on his shoulder to motivate him y'know.
