Celebrity Babies - People - over 3 years
Alberto E. Rodriguez/WireImage Speculation is swirling that Kendra Wilkinson is pregnant — and Friday night’s episode of her reality show will only add fuel to the fire.

In a clip from the show, Wilkinson, 28, admits that she’s annoyed with her husband and tells her therapist, “I want to remove my IUD without [telling] Hank.” When her therapist advises her to make sure that she and her husband of four years are on the same page, the mom of Hank Jr., 3, explains, “We’ve talked about it. He’s more about it than he isn’t …” Later on in the show when she drops the bombshell on her husband that she did it, he’s stunned. “I can have little sperm swim up now … Let’s go!” she says, which prompts him to respond, “I’m feeling pressure right now.” Kendra then confesses, “I know I want baby number two right now.

The 28-year-old, who is mom to 3-year-old Hank Jr. with husband Hank Baskett, admitted to host Marc Lamont Hill that she is trying to have another baby and hoping to see a positive sign on a pregnancy test any day now. "We're trying," she confessed, laughing. "I might go check right now in the bathroom!" When asked if she wants a boy or a girl, Wilkinson admits that being a tomboy herself, she would love another son, but assumes her daughter would be a guy's girl just like her. Still, if her future daughter wanted to pose for Playboy, Wilkinson wouldn't be against it. "If she was the person that I was doing Playboy, I would 100 percent say OK. If she is in a bad mental place [and has] a bad head on her shoulders and doing it under bad conditions, that's different," she explained.

Ex-Lobo, Pinch-Hit Commentator Baskett Likes What He Sees
ABQ Journal - over 4 years
Hank Baskett was happy his former team shook off the early-game jitters before he did. The former UNM and Clovis High School star wide receiver who had a stint in the NFL was back in University Stadium on Saturday doing color commentary for the Lobos radio broadcast of the football team’s 66-21 blowout win over Southern University. “I was a little nervous at first; things were new to me. But once things got going in the game a little bit I think it went pretty well,” Baskett told the Journal of his debut in the radio booth. “It was a lot of fun.” Baskett will also chip in on next week’s Lobos game at the University of Texas doing color commentary along side play-by-play man Scott Galetti before regular color commentary man Greg Remington returns to the booth.

Has the Andy Reid era killed any logic regarding the WR position?
Bleeding Green Nation - over 4 years
Honestly, BGN is one of the better sites out there for Eagles discussions, but half the site is absolutely retarded, especially whe it comes to the wide receiver position. First, I get it, half of you have grown up with really bad WRs, some of you barely remember the T.O. 1.5 year extravaganza. We have a penchant for undersized, and often times underachieving WRs. It's to the point where guys who have way less production than FredEx, for example, like Riley Cooper are regarded as "an up and coming WR" basically because he's 6'4''. Hell, I'm guilty of being a Hank Baskett fan, though, to my credit, Hank did have a couple nice games early on in his career. Hell, I even liked Darienien McCants and I thought Billy McMullen was going to be a stud too. No lie I have seen SEVERAL, meaning, not one but MULTIPLE posts explaining how RILEY COOPER is going to be the #2 WR, MACLIN as the #1 WR and DeSean as the slot because he's "better suited," for the slot. Now my bone to pick with ...

Kendra Wilkinson may be a married mother of a 2 1/2-year-old, but that doesn't mean the former Playboy Mansion mainstay has lost her spunk. In fact, the newly-minted WE tv reality star tells Us Weekly she's become more spontaneous since walking down the aisle with husband Hank Baskett in June 2009 and welcoming their son, little Hank. VIDEO: Kendra rants about "mom pants" "You will see the [traditional] Kendra antics on my new show, but I have retired a couple things, like Playboy and the nudity," Kendra on Top star Wilkinson, 27, explains. "I just figure that there's more to life than getting nude and showing your boobs.

Parting ways with the Playboy Mansion in 2008, Hugh Hefner's former girlfriend will reunite with her ex on an upcoming episode of Kendra on Top.
