She’s having a tough time dealing with the release of her sex tape, but Kendra Wilkinson is thankful husband Hank Baskett has been supportive.

“He’s doing a good job because he’s understanding,” the reality star, 24, says about her NFL player husband of one year. “He’s like, ‘Kendra, we just have to hold our heads high because, yeah, we’re going to get attacked, but we can’t run.”

In a sneak peek of her E! show Kendra May 31 season finale, Wilkinson, who reportedly made the tape with an ex-boyfriend when she was 18, hopes the public won’t judge her based on actions from six years ago.

“That was me, but that’s not me now,” says the former Playboy Playmate, now mom to 5-month-old Hank Baskett IV.

“It broke my heart because how can [someone] do that when I have a baby?” she says in the preview clip posted on E! Online. “It just sucks. It’s the hardest thing to deal with right now.”

For now, she’s leaning on Baskett, who told her, “We have to hold hands and walk through this and face this fact,” for strength.

“It’s going to be really hard,” she says. “It’s going to probably be the hardest time of our lives.”
