Hugh Hefner’s door is open to the former “Girl Next Door” star Kendra Wilkinson. She and husband Hank Baskett are apparently dealing with a cheating scandal, and the Playboy mogul reportedly wants his ex-love to know she still has a place at his famous mansion, Us Weekly reported Wednesday.
Hefner, 88, reportedly called the San Diego native multiple times after he heard Baskett was rumored to have had a tryst with transgender model Ava Sabrina London, a source told the publication.
"He told her to come to the Playboy Mansion any time," the insider said about the magazine founder, who dated Wilkinson from 2004-2008. "He's been supportive and hates that Kendra is going through this."
Neither Wilkinson nor Baskett have officially confirmed the rumors, but it was reported that the former football player, 31, cheated on his wife while she was eight months pregnant with their second child, Alijah, 7 weeks.
At first Wilkinson reportedly laughed off the allegations, but she became suspicious when Baskett didn’t react the same way. She apparently began to snoop through bank records and found suspicious activity on her husband’s account. The former Playboy model is “still in shock” and reportedly wants to get a divorce.
Hef isn’t the only one who has extended his help. Until the alleged cheating scandal, Wikinson had a strained relationship with her mother, Patti, but when Patti heard the news, she rushed to her daughter’s home to be with the blonde beauty and her two grandchildren. (Baskett and Wilkinson also have a son, Hank IV, who is 4.)
There’s been talk Wilkinson will go the same route as Tori Spelling and reveal her marital woes on a reality show. Season 3 of "Kendra on Top" reportedly began filming.
