Kendra Wilkinson is not a single woman, despite recent reports.
The 29-year-old television personality recently spoke to Dish Nation about her relationship, and she was quoted as saying she was single. However, her rep has confirmed that she is still very much a married woman.
Wilkinson has agreed to appear on the Australian reality series I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, and she was speaking to Dish Nation about that opportunity when her words were reportedly taken out of context.
“That is what I’m trying to escape from,” she said of her marital problems with her husband, former NFL pro, Hank Baskett. “I’m going to have some thinking time in the jungle. It’s going to be good to be away from all that… I’m single for the time being.”
According to Kendra’s rep, she meant that she was single while in Australia, away from her husband and kids. “She said she was single ‘for the time being here’ in Australia — physically apart from her husband and kids,” her rep said in a statement to Us Weekly. “Kendra and Hank continue to work on their marriage. Nothing has changed.”

Wilkinson and Baskett married in June 2009 and have two children together- four-year-old son and six-month-old daughter. The status of the couple’s relationship has been up in the air since Baskett was found cheating on Wilkinson with transgender model Ava Sabrina London.
Despite what Kendra’s rep claims, Dish Nation is backing up their report, and said that Kendra did say she was single, and even hinted that she might be willing to date while in Australia. I don’t know what I’d do if there is a Tarzan [on the show] who wants to sweep me off my feet,” Wilkinson was quoted as saying. “I’m quite picky about men. I do like a British accent, though.”
