Kendra Wilkinson gave fans an update on her health on November 11. Her message came more than two months after she visited the emergency room because she suffered a panic attack. So, what happened to the former Playboy model and how is she recovering following the health scare?

Why Did Kendra Wilkinson Go to the Emergency Room?

The Girls Next Door alum visited the emergency room after she suffered a panic attack.

Kendra’s rep told TMZ that she became overwhelmed while balancing her life, ​children Alijah Mary and Hank Jr. and her real estate career. She reportedly went to the emergency room for help after all of her responsibilities became too much to handle.

According to reports, Kendra didn’t sleep the night before the incident, which is why she decided to go to a hospital in Los Angeles for help amid the panic attacks.

She had the support of her ex-husband, Hank Baskett, who remained nearby as she met with doctors.

Was Kendra Wilkinson Hospitalized for the Panic Attack?

While TMZ originally reported that Kendra had been hospitalized, her rep told Entertainment Tonight that she “isn’t hospitalized.”

“She went to the emergency room and will be going home soon,” they continued in a statement issued on September 6.

What Has Kendra Wilkinson Said About the Panic Attack?

Kendra addressed her health in a November 11 Instagram post. She shared a glowing selfie and opened up about completing treatment in the aftermath of her panic attack.

“I just recently finished treatment for my depression and anxiety,” she wrote. “Beyond happy to share this information since there were articles written about it. Might as well give you the full update. Being a solo act can get heavy sometimes and life can get challenging but I do the best I can and push with positive energy. Back on my feet. Happily working in real estate, taking care of my babies and myself. Great friends. Heart is full of gratitude!!!”

In June 2023, Kendra revealed that her depression was initially triggered by her 2019 divorce from Hank. The split happened around the same time that Kendra’s reality show Kendra On Top concluded.

“My divorce happened and all of a sudden, now I’m left with no marriage, I’m left with no show, I had to move into a little house,” she explained. “I didn’t understand what was going on and all of a sudden I had to do some intense healing. For years, I didn’t have fame. I didn’t have everything I knew for a really long time. I didn’t know who I was. I was so lost.”
