A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Love, marriage, and parenthood are all themes here, but are often overshadowed by sexual innuendo and scandal.
Positive Role Models
Kendra embraces some traditional values about marriage and home life while trying to hold on to parts of her former Playboy life and partying ways.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some intense hugging and kissing and strong sexual references (some of which are bleeped out). Kendra has a stripper pole installed in the living room and is often shown dancing provocatively. Images of Playboy Playmates are often visible; Kendra and other Playmates are frequently shown in skimpy underwear or other stages of undress (with breasts and buttocks blurred).

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality show -- which follows Girls Next Door cast member Kendra Wilkinson after she moves out of the Playboy mansion and into her own home -- includes plenty of salty language (the strongest choices are bleeped) and strong sexual content, from innuendo to suggestive dancing (often around a stripper pole) to images of Kendra and other women in skimpy outfits or partially naked (all sensitive body parts are blurred). Expect drinking and product placement as well, plus lots of discussion about Kendra balancing her "wild" side with the expectations of her more conservative fiance.
Is It Any Good?
The show attempts to be entertaining by mixing scenes of Kendra completing mundane tasks like going grocery shopping and cleaning up dog poo with scenes of her swinging around her own stripper pole and hosting wild parties. There's also some mild attempt to create romantic tension as Kendra negotiates the role that Hefner (with whom she maintains a strong friendship) and Playboy will play in her life.
Just like The Girls Next Door, Kendra contains lots of sexy images of Kendra and other women in skimpy underwear and other stages of undress. The language is often a little salty, and parties feature lots of drinking. But despite what happens in front of the cameras, the show offers subtle indications that Kendra is exploring a more traditional lifestyle than what she's publicly known for. Her fans may be intrigued (or confused) about what they see here, but they'll still find plenty of good old-fashioned reality TV voyeurism, too.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
