WE tv, or weTV or however the heck you stylize that random network's name, aired a very special, gripping installment of Kendra on Top on Friday night.
Featuring an in-depth sit-down with Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett, Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 15 promised to give fans "The Untold Story."
Did it deliver? Or was it more along the lines of the same vague, semi-scripted (albeit entertaining) nonsense we've come to expect from the program?
If you watch Kendra on Top online, you know Hank allegedly lent a hand (job) to a transgender model earlier this year, while Kendra was very pregnant.
She found out about this after Ava London sold the story, and while Baskett has never really addressed the particulars, he must have done SOMEthing.
Otherwise, Kendra's a much better actress than we thought, 'cause man she was ripsh!t. Girl did conveniently take her man back on the finale, but whatev.
On Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 15, we still didn't get the true "Untold Story" as we would have liked, but both sides were open. Honest. RAW.
Hank and Kendra allowed WEtv (we think that's how you write it, actually) to ask anything, no restrictions. So did the name Ava London come up?!
Not exactly, but things got real at the end. At the beginning, Kendra and Hank recapped the season, including some of the stuff WE didn't see on tv.
Including how they both contemplated suicide after the scandal leaked.
“I was at a real low. I even questioned my life,” Kendra Wilkinson said.
“If it wasn’t for breastfeeding Alijah [Baskett], the bond I had with her, I feel like I would have probably ended my life. I felt like I’m not even supposed to be here.”
Hank also considered ending his life, he said, having put K-Dubs in this position (vague as he is about what he actually did or didn't do, of course).
We then saw a montage of Kendra's mother, Patti Wilkinson.
Flashbacks from Girls Next Door, as well as E!'s Kendra, showed Patti telling her not to marry Hank, getting upset when she was pregnant, etc.
Kendra said her mom was loving her abject misery, and that it felt like she was hoping Hank would peace out and Kendra would move in with her.
Nothing we didn't know, but wow, that woman is messed up.
By now, we know Kendra took him back, even if she was going to serve Hank with divorce papers. But the wounds from this year still cut deep.
In talking about his alleged affair, Hank actually got a little defensive, saying that all Kendra has ever done is play the “victim,” since the beginning.
Uh, yeah. Hank's been going through a hard time, too, he insists, which is a pretty bold comment if he really did give a transsexual model hand relief.
Kendra took issue with that statement, at which point he ripped his microphone off and stormed off set, leaving us hanging for next week's part two.
Totally scripted, but reasonably well executed, you guys.
