Is marriage taming Kendra Wilkinson? Hint: She still has a stripper pole.

“A guy should fall in love with who they met, you know what I’m saying?” the reality stat tells E! in an interview scheduled to air Tuesday on The Daily 10. “I never change. [Fiancé Hank Baskett] knows where I come from, he knows I lived at the Playboy mansion for the last five years of my life. I still am wild – but not as wild.”

As for that stripper pole, well, Wilkinson, 23, says she uses it for exercise only.

“It’s strictly workout. That’s all it is. At first when I told [Baskett] about the stripper pole, he did not know what it was. He was like, ‘Are you serious? No, you can’t do that.’ “

“He’s a very conservative guy,” she says of her fiancé, whom she is loosing up. “It’s just a lot of fun. He even gets on it now sometimes.”

But, out of respect for Baskett, she’s not going to be posing as she once did in Playboy – nude.

Says Wilkinson: “He gets really mad when I do stuff like that.”
