Wow! I'm A Celebrity's Kendra Wilkinson makes us re-consider our day jobs…(kiddin!)
She’s currently keeping us glued to our screens as a contestant on ITV‘s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, but now Kendra Wilkinson has opened up about her life prior to becoming a Playboy bunny in Hugh Hefner‘s mansion.
The 29-year-old revealed that in just six months she made a whopping $500,000 as a stripper; £319,000 to you and me.
Now THAT is serious money.
Speaking to her campmates, Mel, Edwina and now-evicted Vicki Michelle, Kendra admitted that she just ‘woke-up’ one day and decided that she wanted to be a stripper.
‘I’m just like a free spirit and I wanted to see how much I could earn. I like to party so I looked up my nearest strip club and I told my boyfriend I’m just going to call and see what happens. So I call and I’m like, “How do I become a stripper?”‘
Kendra explained that she’d only had two other jobs before opting to go down the stripper route; a pizza delivery girl and a dental assistant. She quit her dental job after making a staggering £2,500 on her first night just by sitting next to a man.
Jeez. Easy money! Bear in mind though that this is practically pennies to Kendra now who is estimated to have a net worth of almost £4 million.
The Mum-of-two said: ‘When I was a stripper I didn’t know what to do, how to do it, I just kinda walked around the pool, took my clothes off and give a little something, and the money just kept flying at me.’
Hmm, we wonder if sexually-charged, Edwina Currie, 68, was intrigued by this saucy phenomenon.
In a matter of months, Kendra met the infamous Hugh Hefner, 88, at his 78th birthday bash, and was swiftly moved into the Playboy mansion.
Since, Kendra has raked in the dollars, in particular with her popular self-titled reality show.
According to a close friend, the blonde star went into the I’m A Celebrity jungle for ‘some time out’ after her husband of five years, Hank Baskett, 32, apparently slept with a transsexual model AND reportedly paid her $2500 to keep quiet. Yikes!
Kendra has two kids with the former NFL player; six-month-old daughter, Alijah Mary, and four-year-old son Hank Baskett IV.
