Kendra Wilkinson is no shrinking violet when it comes to working on her marriage publicly in the wake of her husband Hank Baskett’s cheating scandal last year and the effort seems to be paying off.
The Kendra On Top star told People magazine at the Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars premiere event at Hyde Sunset Kitchen and Cocktails in West Hollywood that it took some time to decide to go ahead and air out the couple’s dirty laundry on Boot Camp.
“It wasn’t an immediate yes, but we thought about it and then we said yes,” said Kendra Wilkinson. “We’re going through a huge marital crisis at the time. It has four amazing therapists that are willing to help us for two weeks, away from social media, away from TV, away from the world and we’re in. I mean come on.”
Kendra Wilkinson, 29, and the former NFL player, 32, are parents to Hank IV, five, and one-year-old Alijah Mary. They were married in 2009 and split for a time in 2014 after Baskett’s alleged affair with a model in 2014.

And the therapists seem to have made some progress in helping Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett work through their issues.
“We needed the help and we really needed to focus on what our real issues were and what we need to do to solve them,” said Kendra Wilkinson. “We went in fighting each other, we went out fighting the world. And that’s where we remain right now.”
Their stint on Boot Camp has completed filming and Kendra Wilkinson had nothing but good things to say about the experience and what it has done for their marriage.
“We’re in an amazing place. Everyday is work. We’re working on it every single day and we’re both willing to put in the work.”

According to Kendra, dealing with marital issues is not all work and no play
“We’re having actually a good time putting in the work,” said Kendra Wilkinson. “If any of this never had happened, we’d never be as strong as we are today. We’re very faithful.”
