What's the story?
The reality spinoff KENDRA ON TOP features former Playboy playmate Kendra Wilkinson and her husband, former NFL player Hank Baskett, as they raise their son Little Hank and work on their respective careers. While Hank is making the challenging transition from playing pro-football to a career in entertainment, Kendra is seizing every opportunity to advance her own modeling and entrepreneurial goals. She's still pretty wild, but tries hard to balance her professional life with her role as wife and mother.
Is it any good?
Kendra on Top, which is produced by the couple, offers a voyeuristic look at the day-to-day antics of two people whose lives have changed after getting married and having a child. It also shows the individual efforts they are making to build their careers, including losing weight and becoming more articulate in front of a camera.
The show contains some lighthearted scenes, as well as some sexually risqué moments that have become part of Kendra's trademark. Meanwhile, appearances by folks like Hugh Hefner and former Playmate Holly Madison serve as reminders about Kendra's former lifestyle. It's not the most substantive of shows, but Kendra fans might find it entertaining enough to tune in.
