Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett, after weeks of what we can only awkwardly characterize as "hype," split.
At first, things were looking more-or-less amicable.
That has now changed.
Kendra has gone from posting about being sad and single and needed to feel motivated and excited again to tweeting some accusations against Hank.
These aren't what you'd expect -- they're not accusations about his behavior during their nearly 9 years of marriage.
These are accusations about his behavior towards her now that they have broken up.
Kendra hastily deleted most of the tweets that we are about to show you.
Take a look:
Kendra and Hank are over
This we've known for a little while, and it appeared to be amicable at first. It looks like things have turned downright nasty, however.
First, Kendra accuses Hank of recording her
In some cases, and in some parts of the United States, it is illegal to record someone speaking without their permission. In any event, it's rarely something you do when you're on good terms with your partner, or ex.
She says that he blames her for a lot of things
Not entirely sure how he figures that. This is something that happens, sooner or later, to every athlete, and Hank - while absolutely great at his sport, to even make it to the highest level in college and pro football - was never an elite player by NFL standards.
That wasn't his most outlandish claim
While Kendra was pregnant with their daughter, Alijah, Hank reportedly cheated on her with a transgender model, though he insists that he was, at worst, a passive participant in Ava London giving him hand relief, over the shorts (this claim is disputed). Other reports claim that the two went further than he claims. Regardless, it's hard to see how a pregnant Kendra could have forced his hand (sorry ... or any other body part).
Kendra was outta there.
No one likes being recorded or disrespected. Especially by an ex. There are clearly a lot of emotions in play, but this was reportedly what pushed her past her breaking point.
But Kendra wasn't done
Not even close. Kendra deleted those tweets - which included some serious accusations - but then she tweeted out some further thoughts, which have ALSO since been deleted. You're not going to believe those ...
Kendra tries to explain herself, but that's hard
Honestly? It seems pretty understandable that she would freak out about being recorded. But she knows that a lot of fans still have a lot of love for both her and for Hank, so yeah, that can be awkward. Very awkward. She feels she is getting s--t on, but can't even grieve about it privately. Not to mention there are kids involved. Yes, this is a giant mess all around.
She describes that panic
Remember, she's been trying to cope with the breakup, and now this unpleasantness has been added to the already difficult situation. And she's still trying to coparent with him. We feel so bad for those kids.
She's been open on social media about her pain
This, shared to Instagram, explains how she feels about her life. Or what's left of it. Life as she knows it is changing so radically, and an experience like moving will often be emblematic of that, and emotionally traumatizing.
She's not being shy about it, either
As you can imagine, fans replied to this with some advice of their own. Kendra Wilkinson, being Kendra Wilkinson, did not edit herself in responding.
The advice poured in, and a lot of it was good
Sure, there are trolls out there, but plenty of fans are fans for the right reasons. They love Kendra and want her to be happy and thrive at life. This here is good advice for just about anyone.
Some spoke from experience
Another helpful piece of advice from one of her Instagram followers. Remember, Kendra is still in the first few months after a serious breakup. It's going to get better than this.
Some advice came mom-to-mom
Obviously, a parent's first priority should always and forever be their offspring. Of course, can Kendra be her best for them if she doesn't also look after herself? Single parents have always struggled with this, and celebrities are no different. If anything, she has the fact that she lives in the public eye to make things even harder (whether she brings that upon herself by live tweeting her problems is another story, but still, there will be increased scrutiny around a public figure).
Some advice was ... questionable
Folks, we know you mean well, but most of the time, if someone is divorcing, they've already tried everything to avoid that scenario, and are going so out of self-preservation as a matter of last resort. Don't try to talk them out of it.
Others think she should take charge of her own bliss
It's not about finding someone new with whom to find happiness. It's about finding happiness with herself, right?
But concentrating on her kids could help
It goes without saying, but is still helpful to remember when lost in a maelstrom of emotion. After all, they're going through this divorce, too, right along with Kendra and Hank.
Kendra has already made some changes
Even a simple thing like going brunette can help her look at this change in her life as a positive thing. It may be more symbolic than anything, but sometimes the little things do help when turning over a new leaf.
Kendra still knows how to have fun
There's some conventional wisdom that says that, if a person smiles enough, they trick themselves into believing that they are happy. At her core, Kendra is a happy-go-lucky girl who loves to have fun, so that will work to her benefit as she copes.
Quality time with her kids can make a world of difference
Fans may recall that Kendra hit the slopes with her son when divorce rumors were barely more than speculation. No matter what happens with Baskett, the memories she makes with her son and daughter will last a lifetime.
There's no way back. Only forward.
We do hope that, in future mediations or coparenting sessions or just social visits, Kendra and Hank are able to get along better. And also that no one tries to record the other, or live-tweet their personal problems. Please. It might seem therapeutic at the time, but over the long run, it does more harm than good.
