It’s a great story line: A couple fight through disagreements and infidelity to save their marriage and give their kids a happy home. But for Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett, it’s only a story: Their marriage is actually over, and they’re faking it for the sake of their reality show, Kendra on Top.
“It’s all about the show,” a source close to the pair tells OK!. “They’ll milk Hank’s infidelity scandal for everything it’s worth.”
In the upcoming season, the source says, Kendra will forgive Hank for cheating with transgender model Ava Sabrina London, (below). Behind the scenes, she’ll never forget the betrayal, but she’s been putting on a happy face—not for the sake of their kids, Hank Jr., 4, and Alijah, 3 months, but because it’s good for business. Hank and Kendra are worried that if their marriage goes down the drain, so will their show, which has not yet been picked up by WEtv for a fourth season.
“Hank and Kendra are really shrewd,” says the source. “They are treating this like a business transaction, and they’ve done their homework. They know that staying silent and forcing fans to get news from their show is their best bet for capitalizing on the crisis.”
Do you think they should work through their problems and try to save their marriage? Do you think they should continue to do the show? Share in the comments or tweet us @OKMagazine.
