Kendra Wilkinson was born in San Diego and loved to play sports as a child. After leaving high school, she began modeling. She met Hugh Hefner when she was working as a model at one of his parties. Upon meeting her, Hugh Hefner asked Kendra to be one of his girlfriend, which of course, Kendra accepted.
Pretty soon, Kendra was featured on the E! reality show, “The Girls Next Door,” which was when the nation was formally introduced to her. From there, Kendra went on to meet her husband, Hank Baskett, the former American football wide receiver, and film her own reality show, “Kendra.” The first season documented her plans to get married to Hank. A later version of the show, “Kendra on Top,” saw Kendra Wilkinson filming several seasons and serving as co-producer.
Besides making cameos on a few TV shows and appearing in additional reality shows such as “Dancing With the Stars,” Kendra has also performed in music videos. Additionally, Kendra has blogged for the website of the Philadelphia Eagles, published her own website, and released her own website, featuring personalized digital content to build her brand and connect with fans.
Another, more controversial source of income for Kendra, was a sex tape of her having sex with her then high school boyfriend. The Huffington Post and the New York Daily News reported that Kendra was paid $680,000 for release of the sexy tape.
Currently, Kendra Wilkinson’s social media following consists of $2.5 million followers on Instagram and nearly 3 million followers on Twitter.
So what’s Kendra Wilkinson net worth? Given that her income comes from all of the above ventures and sources, in 2018, Kendra Wilkinson net worth 2018 is estimated to be in the ballpark of $5 million.
