Kendra Wilkinson (born 12 June 1985 in San Diego, California, USA) is a model best known as one of Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner's three girlfriends appearing with him in the E! Entertainment channel reality series The Girls Next Door.
Kendra Leigh Wilkinson was born and raised in San Diego, California. In 2003, at age 18, she underwent breast-enhancement surgery and moved to Los Angeles, meeting Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner at his 78th birthday bash the following year at the Playboy Mansion. He immediately asked her be his live-in girlfriend, joining Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt. In 2005, E! began airing The Girls Next Door, a half-hour reality series following the daily lives of Hefner, Wilkinson, Madison and Marquardt. The show was an immediate success, both on the E! network and in DVD sales, and the girls have since posed for three Playboy layouts. In addition, they released a DVD called The Girls Next Door Workout, which was also a big success.
In December 2005, Wilkinson began blogging on the Philadelphia Eagles' official website. She is a big fan of both the Eagles and her hometown San Diego Chargers. Miss Wilkinson is currently taking classes with the hope of one day becoming a massage therapist.
