Kendra: “Skype” Is Saving My Long-Distance Marriage


Kendra Wilkinson says technology is helping her long-distance marriage to Hank Baskett.

Baskett, 28, was recently traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Minnesota Vikings. Though she wanted to join him in the Midwest, he told her it was best if she and baby Hank – who turns 1 next month – lived in L.A., where most of their friends and family reside.

To keep the romance alive, "We take advantage of Skype, texting," she said on the Today show Thursday, adding that they also use Apple's FaceTime, which allows them to have face-to-face video calls. "We have all that."

"It's actually a blessing in disguise," Wilkinson, 25, went on. "We get a chance to know each other all over again and communicate."

The only downfall: With her husband away, she said, "I'm doing kind of everything by myself."

Wilkinson wanted to reiterate to fans, "I love my married life. We're not separated."

In fact, she tells the new Us Weekly (now on newsstands) that they even want another baby! "We're talking about having No. 2," she tells Us.

One thing she is still on-the-fence about: Posing again for Playboy.

On the season premiere of E!'s Kendra Sunday, she receives a call from her agent asking her to strip down. She nervously asks her husband for permission but ends up turning down the offer.

Asked on the Today show if she's changed her mind, she said, "I'm leaning more on no. I'm 25, I'm still young, I'm still hot. But I'm like, 'Do I need to do Playboy again to be hot in the public eye?'"
