Kendra Wilkinson may not be the Girl Next Door anymore, but she'll always have a friend in ex-love Hugh Hefner. As revealed exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly, the Playboy mogul has reached out to offer his support to Wilkinson, 29, amid the recent drama with her husband, Hank Baskett.

Hefner, 88, has phoned the San Diego native several times since news of Baskett's alleged affair with transgender model Ava Sabrina London broke in June, a source tells Us.

"He told her to come to the Playboy Mansion any time," the insider says of the businessman, who dated Wilkinson for four years until 2008. "He's been supportive and hates that Kendra is going through this."

"This," of course, refers to the model's marital strife with Baskett in the wake of reports that the former NFL pro, 31, cheated on his wife of four years while she was eight months pregnant with their second child, daughter Alijah, 7 weeks. (The couple also have a 4-year-old son, Hank IV.)

Though she initially laughed off the allegations, Wilkinson grew suspicious when Baskett didn't rush to publicly clear his name. An odd charge on his bank statement fanned her fears of infidelity. She's "still in shock," a source previously told Us.
