In news that shouldn’t be shocking for someone that has posed in Playboy and dated a senior citizen, Kendra Wilkinson reveals the following personal details of her life in her new E! True Hollywood Story:

She once dabbled in cocaine and was hospitalized as a teenager for drug abuse and suicidal thoughts.

Around 13, Kendra says she started to hang out with a “rebel group.”

“All of a sudden they broke out this white stuff,” she said. “I did it, and I started feeling this big ball of chalk going down my throat and I was like ‘what is this ****! Ew this is so gross.’. After that I started feeling pretty good. That was the start of my drug days.”

Due to these issues, Kendra’s mother admitted her daughter for two weeks to a secured psychiatric facility.

“It was crazy in that place,” Wilkinson says in the TV special. “A lot of those kids were suicidal like me and we didn’t see daylight. We weren’t allowed outside. It was basically a jail, but it was a hospital.”

Kendra says the experience actually “made me worse,” as she ran away from home her sophomore year of high school.

“I was still on drugs,” she says. “All throughout sophomore year I lived with this guy and I did drugs for that long. Every day, every minute.”

The model has turned things around now. We may mock her for her constant tabloid coverage, but we’re glad to see Kendra is on the mend.
