Kendra Wilkinson reportedly chose to fly her estranged father, Eric, over for support while she filmed I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in Australia. She chose the company of Eric, who abandoned his family in 1994, over her husband Hank Baskett, who recently had an affair.
“She could have chosen Hank to be there for her when she gets out, but she’s surprised everyone by calling on her father,” a source tells Star Magazine. “This says a lot about the state of their marriage.”
The source explained, “Most people pick their partner to come, and Kendra made this choice before she even went into the jungle.”
Previously, Kendra’s mother, Patti (pictured below), called out the reality star for reconciling with her estranged father. Moreover, Patti told Star weeks ago that the reconciliation had been staged for Kendra On Top: “A friend of mine saw online that Kendra and Hank were [on vacation] in Costa Rica with the kids, and I instantly knew that she went to see her dad… Kendra and Hank are all about ratings, so I knew they went there with a planned storyline where, because of Hank’s infidelity, Kendra felt it was important to reconnect with her estranged dad.”
Patti added, “Just days before, I was picking her up off the floor, and now she can’t even tell me that she’s going to see her father, who left us — not to mention that she went with a guy who cheated on her with a tr**ny. The whole thing is beyond absurd to me.”
