Kendra Wilkinson Getting Own Reality Show
Tuesday February 3, 2009
is getting her own reality show, E!
Working title Kendra
-- which has been picked up for eight episodes -- will follow the 23-year-old as she moves out of the Playboy mansion, where she had 24/7 room service and a social secretary, and lives on her own for the first time.
The network says she'll have to learn how to do laundry, cook, grocery shop and pay her own bills.
The show will also follow Wilkinson and her fiance, Philadelphia Eagles' Hank Baskett (whom she's marrying on June 27), on a road trip as she helps him move from New Mexico to California. Their on-camera growing pains include balancing her party-girl lifestyle with his conservative, religious mindset. (The pair pray every night before dinner.)
"Throughout the five highly successful seasons of the Girls Next Door
, Kendra has developed a loyal fan-base with her outrageous personality and trademark laugh," E!
's Lisa Berger said in a statement. "Now she's faced with the reality of making it outside the gates of the Mansion and as Kendra's fans are aware, you never know what she's going to do next."
Between wedding planning, Wilkinson will still find time to hang out with Hef, and Girls Next Door
roommates Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt. Playboy playmate pals Amber Campisi and Britney Binger will also make cameos.
(And her mom, grandmother and brother are nervous about Wilkinson's ability to live on her own, so they'll be featured as well.)
The show premieres this summer.
