Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner is privately supporting Kendra Wilkinson in light of hubby Hank Baskett's recent cheating scandal. No, Hef isn't financially supporting Kendra, but is offering a shoulder to cry on, a pair of ears for listening, and access to the Playboy mansion to his former girlfriend and Playboy bunny. The 88-year-old is married to another of his former bunnies--28-year-old Crystal Harris. It's unknown what Harris thinks of Hugh's generosity.

Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett made news recently when a scandal about him cheating with a transsexual model named Ava Sabrina London hit the media.

"He told her to come to the Playboy Mansion any time. He's been supportive and hates that Kendra is going through this," a source says of Hugh Hefner.

Hank Baskett is a former NFL star. He and Kendra Wilkinson have two children together-- a son named Hank IV, who is four, and a daughter named Alijah, who is just seven weeks old. He reportedly cheated on Kendra when she was eight months pregnant with their baby girl.

A prior source claims Kendra was inconsolable when she learned her husband had cheated, and has moved a few of her close girlfriends into her L.A. mansion to stay with her for a while. She was recently spotted out and about sans her wedding ring as well.

"She will never get over this. They are 100 per cent done," the source says.

Hugh Hefner dated Kendra Wilkinson at a time when he was also dating Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt. The bizarre situation became fodder for the reality show The Girls Next Door.

While it's nice that Hugh Hefner has reached out to Kendra and offered to help in any way he can, it might be healthier for this young mother of two to seek solace from her girlfriends instead. There can't be a lot of good come from relying on an ex-lover--even if he is 88 years old.
