Kendra Wilkinson & Shawne Merriman: Dating?!?!

by at .

Move over, Hank. It looks like Kendra Wilkinson has a new retired NFL player in her life, and it seems he's been on her mind for a long time.

If you watch Kendra on Top online, you know the former Playboy model isn't having the easiest time with husband Hank Baskett.

That may have something to do with the fact that Hank cheated on Kendra with a transsexual model and lied about it for months before eventually coming clean.

Kendra even announced on last week's episode that she's "in the dating stage" of her life again, but now it looks like she may have sped right through that and is now back in the serious relationship phase.

Sources are telling In Touch that Kendra has rekindled her romance with former NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman.

If you're a football fan, you probably Merriman's days with the San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills.

If you're not into sports, you might remember the allegations that Merriman assaulted Tila Tequila.

Anyway, Kendra and Shawne dated back in 2007, and insiders claim they're now back together in a big way.

“Kendra rants nonstop on the set every day about how she’s fed up with Hank and how desperate she is to get rid of him,” a friend tells In Touch. “She can’t wait for her show to be over so she can finally leave him.

“Kendra tells producers he’s the true love of her life...She [says] can’t get Shawne out of her mind."

Sounds like she's pretty into Shawne. Of course, at this point, she'd probably be into anyone who's not Hank.
