Kendra Wilkinson on Top…

What?! You didnt’ know Kendra was KolorBlind? Yes, she is married to Hank Baskett (biracial). On Tuesday, July 10th Kendra made an appearance on the Today Show to promote her new book “Being Kendra”. She looked beautiful as always and was all smiles for the camera.

She wore a gray skirt paired with a red top and black cardigan as she showed off her contagious smile outside the Rockefeller Plaza.

Her new book available on amazon.com reveals some parts of her story as a wife, mom and TV personality.

Kendra Wilkinson has revealed herself before—in the pages of Playboy and on her reality show, Kendra. Now she reveals her private side, sharing the ups and downs, the joys and challenges of motherhood, marriage, and life in the spotlight.

In this intimate follow-up to her New York Times best-seller, Sliding into Home, Kendra confides her most candid thoughts and feelings on her experiences as a new mom, and she divulges her secrets on how to do it all and make it look easy, sexy, and fun—even when it’s not.

Now with a husband and baby in her life, a booming brand to manage, and her own needs to think about too, Kendra is learning the art of balance, sometimes the hard way. Not wanting to pawn her child off to nannies like so many other stars, Kendra relishes the role of supermom—kissing boo-boos, making lunches, scheduling playdates—all while juggling appearances, workout videos, and even training for the ultra-competitive hit show Dancing with the Stars.

While Being Kendra is full of humor and true stories that women can relate to, it’s also a heartrending look at Kendra’s very personal journey through some dark places, including a private struggle with postpartum depression and a very public tussle with post-baby weight loss. Kendra, who has always been known for her athletic (and enhanced) figure, opens up about her efforts to get her bikini body back and the difficulty of not looking sexy, which she believed was her most valuable quality. Her fight to lose weight at any cost, chronicled on the covers of countless magazines, has become yet another triumph for Kendra as she continues to succeed in the face of adversity.

From dental assistant, to Playboy girlfriend and face of a franchise, to wife and new mother, Kendra has embraced what life has thrown at her with determination, fortitude, and a ready laugh. This daring and honest memoir captures Kendra and her family in their best and worst moments as she lives, loves, rebounds, and, ultimately, finds her place in her new world.

USA today reported in March 2012 that WE TV will be airing a new Kendra reality series. Yes, Kendra, 26, is returning to reality TV and with a new name:”Kendra On Top” The series airs every Tuesday at 10:00pm and again at 10:30pm EST.
