Kendra Wilkinson: ‘I Attempted Suicide As A Teen’
Former Playboy playmate-turned-reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson has opened up about the severe depression she battled as a teenager, revealing she attempted suicide twice. Hugh Hefner’s ex-girlfriend opened up about her troubles during a chat with her therapist, which will air on her Kendra on Top show Friday.
In the segment, she says, “When I was a teenager, I battled some severe depression. I attempted suicide a couple times. I went to a mental institution… drugs, overdosing, slitting wrists, all that stuff.” Wilkinson goes on to explain many of her issues stem from a bad relationship with her mother. “I was left on my own,” she continues. “I was a young f**king girl. All I wanted was for my mom to say, ‘I love you, and I’m here for you’. I never got that.” Wilkinson’s life hasn’t exactly been easy now she’s an adult. Last year her marriage to former football star Hank Baskett was tested when it emerged he had cheated on her.
