Kendra Wilkinson and Louis van Amstel
"The Bunny Next Door"
PRO DANCER PARTNER: Louis van Amstel
TV personality/glamour girl Kendra Wilkinson is probably best known from her self-titled hit reality series Kendra. Just wrapping its 3rd season on E!, the show follows Kendra, NFL star hubby Hank Baskett, and son Hank IV through their crazy lives. Between life in the spotlight, raising a toddler and the challenges of being an NFL wife, the show is a fun-filled, action-packed look into Kendra's world.
Kendra got her start on one of E! Entertainment's highest-rated shows, The Girls Next Door. She was on the reality hit for five seasons until 2009. That's when Kendra closed one chapter in her life and started a new one. And by that we mean she got married, celebrated the birth of son Hank IV and of course, launched her hit show, Kendra.
Kendra is a self-described tomboy and avid sports fan who loves watching boxing and rooting for her favorite football team, the San Diego Chargers. Since the debut of The Girls Next Door, Kendra has appeared on the cover of many magazines and has enjoyed numerous TV and movie appearances.
In 2007, Kendra was part MTV's reality series Celebrity Rap Superstar, where she proved to be a fan favorite finishing second in the competition. In 2008, Kendra was featured in the movie The House Bunny, along with her Girls Next Door co-stars Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Hugh Hefner. In 2009, Kendra was featured on the hit CBS series How I Met Your Mother. And in 2011, she'll be taking the stage on Dancing With The Stars!

Hated listening to her talk, hated watching her dance, just generally don't like her one bit. She can go back to the stripper pole, and take that wrinkled old bag of bones Heff with her.

TOTALLY agree. I can't stand her. Her whole attitude stinks and her dancing isn't much better. Let's hope this is her week to depart!
I can't remember if I ever liked her and if I did then I don't know why I did. Go home!

Looks like we are stuck with her for another week. Blah.
Unfortunately. Blah twice. Who knows with her? She is so bizarre that she might just take a hike because somebody looked at her wrong. I was pretty stunned myself, SugarB.
