Kendra Wilkinson tells all in new memoir

Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson has never appeared to be ashamed of her unconventional past, but now, for the first time, the reality star will put it all in writing.

The former Playboy Bunny went on the “Today” show Tuesday to promote her new memoir, “Sliding into Home.” The book details Kendra’s life - from her past as a 13-year-old drug addict to her present as a wife and mother.

Kendra says there are parts of the memoir she has never discussed with the public – let alone her mother – saying she recently told her mom about her past as a stripper because she didn’t want her to find out from the book.

Her memoir also dishes about the time she spent at the Playboy Mansion, going into what Kathy Lee Gifford calls “pretty graphic detail what those nights were like with Hef.”

Will you read Kendra’s memoir?

    She seemed to do alright with herself. She may appear to not be all that bright, could be she is really smarter than she acts? Maybe it is her kindness that made her do well.

    Aren't memoirs usually done by old people who have lived an inspiring or adventurous life. What is inspiring about becoming a playboy bunny and flashing your naked boobs everywhere? I agree with Brian. LOL, Dollar store is probably right but unfortuantely with how s*xualized everything is these days, walmart will more than likely carry it also.

    Another no-talent bimbo, she's got a great body (likely surgically enhanced) but she is not pretty at all. I look at her and see slime, anyone that could get in bed with the worst male ho of all time should not have been allowed to breed.

    She will sell a lot of books because she became well-known from The Girls Next Door. I am curious as to why she did some of the things she is known for and whether or not she regrets anything. In a time when dental implants are common, who cares if her boobs are real.
    I hope Kendra is happy, she is young, married and a mother. As to her writing ability, a lot of celebrity bios are written with the help of professional writers, which means the celebrity dictates and the writer does the actual work.

    Heff saves Kendra's life, becomes the father she never had and wanted, and what does he have to show for it? She'll never be by his side when he's dying, and she bashes him in a book to promote herself. On top of that, she is bashing her own parents in her book to promote herself. She is the worst role model for young people, and she has horribly selfish bad character and all she is doing is promoting that if you screw your parents, and you cheat on your boyfriend for the bigger, better deal with an old man with more resources, and you do drugs and you don't give a hoot about anyone but yourself, and you never do the right thing in life, you can write a tell all book about your life and become famous. What is this world coming to? But, she is entertaining. Just wish she was a fictional character instead. Knowing she's a real person is simply scary!

    I'm happy this woman's life is turning out OK, but I strongly disagree with writing a book about this kind of life, unless it is a book where money goes to help teen drug addicts or something and talks about NOT doing the things this woman did. There are millions of people without jobs who have never taken drugs or broken any laws that are just looking for a break. This woman sleeps with 80 year olds, does drugs and now will probably get at least 6 figures to write a book about her escapades. I know America is the land of opportunity, but I still feel something is to be said for honest hard work.

    People! Why are you slamming her for writing a book? Is your life that bad that you read a story in the entertainment section just to rain on someone else's parade? And how many of you who are telling Kendra to stay home with her children rather than work, stay home with your own children? Don't cast stones at her for making a living if you're out there making one yourself because then people could criticize you for not staying home with your kids and being a mom first. It's not like Hef gave her a severance package and Kendra's not going to live off of royalties from the Girls Next Door for the next sixty years. She didn't make that much! And if you just think she's a vapid idiot, don't buy the book! Why do you need to tell all of us what you think about her level of intelligence?

      Not that I would want to take her side or anything, but it appears she doesn't care what you have to say on a blog. Basically... the point I'm making is that she probably has more of a life than you and I do... seeing as how she doesn't have the time to read our petty little commentary.
