Kendra Wilkinson is silencing the haters. The Marriage Boot Camp star defended her marriage to husband Hank Baskett on Friday, July 17.

"This is the love of my life…A true man. I believe in forgiveness and I believe in him. I take my vows very serious and won't let people's beliefs get in my way of what I know," Wilkinson, 30, captioned a pic of the couple via Instagram.

She continued: "Everyone that truly knows @hank_baskett knows the truth and everyone who doesn't creates their own ideas n that's ok but don't F–K with me and what I love and stand for. Love the support but all the other 2 cents can kiss my ass."

The former Girls Next Door star and Baskett, 32, have come a long way since the athlete's alleged affair with transgender model Ava Sabrina London last year. Wilkinson posted the lengthy message on Instagram just hours after a brand-new episode of Marriage Boot Camp showed their costars calling their relationship fake.

"We know the type of girl that Kendra is. If that story was real, she would've punched him in the motherf—ing face right in front of us," Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino said in one scene. Aubrey O'Day's now-ex Travis Garland added: "At this point, it's been taking away from what else everyone is trying to do, which is focus on our own issues."

Wilkinson and Baskett tied the knot in June 2009 and are parents to son Hank IV, 5, and daughter Alijah, 15 months.

"Our marriage is amazing right now. We are working on it every single day," Wilkinson told Us Weekly in May. "It's a lot of work, 24/7, but we're both willing to put that time in and really stick it through. We're both in it for the long run, and we both have goals, and they're both the same."
