Kendra Wilkinson is afraid Hank Baskett's cheating scandal could be akin to that of Tiger Woods, with additional dalliances between him and other women emerging. It was during an interview with E! that Kendra voiced her concern.

"What if there is more that comes out?" she said. "I can't sit here and say I'm going to stay with him and then tomorrow another story comes out. What if this is another Tiger Woods situation?"

It was just about four months ago when Kendra Wilkinson's marriage to Hank Baskett turned sour. That's when she learned he had cheated on her with a transsexual woman.

"This has come out of nowhere. It's like I'm living a nightmare. It's so unreal…I can't even wake up from it. Is this really Hank? Is this situation really about Hank?" she added.

The Tiger Woods situation escalated quickly--within days, even--following his infamous car crash in 1999. It wasn't long before many women came out of the proverbial woodwork, claiming to have had affairs with Elin Nordegren's husband. It would seem likely that if Hank had cheated on Kendra with more than just this one transsexual woman, that the others would have made their way into the limelight by now.

Kendra Wilkinson admits that since learning Hank cheated on her, she has gone out a couple of times with her girlfriends to see what being single again might be like. She admits to thinking about divorcing her husband.

"I have a newborn baby and a four-year-son, so it's not like I have the time to do online dating," she said. "I went out two nights. I wanted to see if guys still want me. But that's how I know I'm married because I'm still shut off from all that. I don't want to do this. I'm so over that stuff. I'd rather focus on taking my time on my marriage. It's worth it to me. If he's denying it, then why not give him the benefit of the doubt?"

Is Kendra Wilkinson crazy to give Hank Baskett a second chance? Do you think her fears of her situation becoming like the Tiger Woods situation are unfounded--or might they come to fruition?

Do you admire Kendra for giving her marriage another go? She's certainly still in love with Hank Baskett.

"I'm not the type of person to flip a switch and just shut my love for Hank off," she said to another E! reporter while promoting her new show, Kendra on Top. "I love him so much. That's why I'm in so much pain.

"We're talking about Hank—the most perfect gentleman, Christian, the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect man," she added. "He caters to my every move. He's never even yelled at me before and here we are dealing with this mess."

How might you react if you were Kendra Wilkinson? She definitely has some tough decisions ahead of her.
