It was a heartfelt moment last night on Dancing With the Stars when Kendra Wilkinson first heard the news she was eliminated from the competition. Her hubby, Hank Baskett stood up and clapped and then she stated, "Baby Hank I’m coming home for you. I’m not the best dancer but I am the best mom. I’m back to being a mom!”

Despite being sent home, Kendra was in good spirits! She told reporters, "I'm very happy today. I'm going back to being a mother. I was never a dancer, but this was a chance to really do something I've never done before and be a person I've never been before and it was different. It was awesome!"

After thanking Louis Van Amstel, her dancing partner, Kendra mentioned it simply wasn't meant to be and she's not sad about it. Instead, she's pretty psyched where they ended up. "We ended on a very positive note," she added.

So, what exactly will Kendra take home from the entire experience? "I learned how to dance! That's something I've never done before. I knew how to move, but I never learned how to dance. That's what I learned. Louie taught me how to dance." Dancing wasn't the only thing the show taught her. "Confidence, yeah! I'm 100% confident with being a mother, being a wife, and doing what I definitely know how to do (laughs)!"
