Kendra Wilkinson is never one to shy away from on-screen drama, especially when it comes to her time on her successful reality shows! But her latest blowup on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars -- which featured the model and wife of Hank Baskett blasting her mother, Patti Wilkinson -- is now being exposed as just another reality TV setup!
Kendra and Patti have been wrapped in a nasty feud for years, and their estranged relationship remains very real -- with Kendra even delving into their issues on the show. However, a source revealed to RadarOnline.com that their explosive fight during an episode of Marriage Boot Camp was more fiction than fact!
During the episode, Patti stands up to object as Kendra and Baskett are renewing their vows on the show. During the nasty argument, Kendra goes as far as to tell her mother, “The devil has eaten your soul!”
The moment was reality TV greatness, and a clip from the fight even made it into the super trailer for the show’s latest season. However, the source said the entire scenario was staged to boost the show’s ratings, and the source added that Kendra also mislead her mother, who thought she was appearing on the show to reconcile with her daughter.

"She invited her mom out to the show," the source said. "She reached out to her mom and then totally made her mom look ridiculous." The insider continued, "They were going to have this big reconciliation and that's part of why Patti agreed to do it. If Patti knew that Kendra was going to go off, she would have never done it."
According the the source, Kendra and her mom “didn't even talk one-on-one,” and the moment “was basically for ratings." And Patti “was heart broken” after the argument, the source added.
But her fight with her mom wasn’t the only moment the source said Kendra played up on the show! “Kendra even took advantage of the allegations that her husband had an affair with a transsexual, as Radar reported, featuring the fall-out on the show,” the insider said.
