Kendra and Hank Not “Torn Apart by Another Woman”
In Touch‘s cover story is particularly shameless this week, featuring a bait-and-switch that implies Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett‘s relationship is unraveling thanks to infidelity. They’ve been “torn apart by another woman,” declares the tabloid, which claims that Playboy Playmate Jessica Hall has forced a “humiliated Kendra” to leave Baskett.
The clear insinuation is that Baskett and Hall were “caught” together. In actuality, the magazine story alleges that Wilkinson was the one whose (supposed) liaison with Hall has pushed her marriage to “its most vulnerable point ever.”
A so-called “witness” tells In Touch that “Kendra and Jessica really started getting crazy” while partying together at the MGM Grand’s Wet Republic in Las Vegas. Their supposed “full-on, raunchy makeout session” left patrons staring and Baskett, when he heard about it, “not amused.” The football player was “still steaming over [Wilkinson’s] escapades in Vegas” when he declined to show up at her “Dancing with the Stars” results show after she returned from her vacation.
According to In Touch, Wilkinson’s PDA with Hall is part of a larger pattern of wild behavior that’s driving Baskett crazy. As a tab “source” explains, “the more Hank tries to control Kendra, the more she wants to escape… that, of course, leads to more fights, as Hank tries to lay down the law.”
All of this is fascinating but totally bogus – just like the In Touch cover story screaming about the couple’s alleged “divorce drama” more than three months ago. Despite the magazine’s best efforts to drive Wilkinson and Baskett apart, an insider close to the couple tells Gossip Cop they remain perfectly happy.
