When Kendra Wilkinson first heard there were rumors her husband, Hank Baskett, had had an affair with a transsexual, she did not believe it.
And we don’t mean that figuratively. She genuinely didn’t believe it to be true when her agent called her with the devastating news—just weeks after she gave birth to her daughter, Alijah.
“This happened five weeks after giving birth to my daughter, and here we are with our newborn baby, and little Hank, and we get a call saying, ‘Hank cheated on me with a transsexual?’ I just laughed about it,” she confessed to Giuliana Rancic during an upcoming special Beyond Candid With Giuliana: Kendra Wilkinson Baskett.

She was next to the football pro when she got the phone call — and when she asked him about the allegations, he denied them. And she believed him.
While she continued to look for evidence, she couldn’t find anything beyond reports of Hank’s car making appearances outside the woman’s apartment. Eventually, she took extreme measures—by kicking him out and flushing her wedding ring down the toilet.
Even though the former Girls Next Door star admits her husband is “still a great father,” she knows they still have long ways to go in terms of their relationship. She also had a strong message to say to the naysayers—including her mother, Patti—who think the whole story was concocted to garner attention for her reality series, Kendra On Top.
“I wish we did [create the drama],” she said. “It is the most insulting thing out of all this, that people think that this is fate. I would never do this to myself. You know, I would never degrade myself like that.”

As for the future, even Kendra admits she’s somewhat unsure about their relationship.
“Overall, he was denying the whole thing. I don’t know what to believe,” she admitted.
“Yes, I’m seriously mad at Hank because I know something happened. I’ve come very close to divorcing him already.”
