Why be coy?

Appearing on the U.K.’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, Kendra on Top star Kendra Wilkinson was asked if, as one of Hugh Hefner’s Girls Next Door, she had to have sex with the Playboy mogul.

And how did she end up at the Playboy Mansion in the first place?

“I just wanted to party. And I had a damn good time. It was so much fun,” Wilkinson, 29, told TV presenter-model Melanie Sykes.

“Hef asked me to be one of his girlfriends and live in the mansion and I was like, ‘I don’t even know what that means, but hell, yeah! I’m there!’ I was living in this small-ass apartment. I was praying for anything to get me out of there.”

But did Wilkinson know that sex with the master of the mansion was essentially a prerequisite to living there?

“I moved in and weeks went by and I didn’t know that sex was involved,” she said. “Because I knew nothing about Playboy. I had just graduated high school.”

When the time came, Hefner didn’t mince words, asking Wilkinson if she “want[ed] to come upstairs,” Wilkinson recalled.

When Sykes, 44, asked whether Kendra would have been shown the door if her answer had been no, Wilkinson hemmed and hawed, telling I’m a Celebrity cameras that Hef “really looks at them as real relationships.”

In other words, sex equals relationship equals mansion.

As it was, her relationship with Hefner ended in 2008 after her engagement to Hank Baskett, whom she wed in 2009.

Since then, the couple’s marital woes following Baskett’s alleged affair have been playing out on Kendra on Top and Marriage Boot Camp.
