IT’S RE-BOOTY TIME! “KENDRA ON TOP” PREMIERES TUESDAY, JUNE 5th AT 9 PM ET/PT ON WE tv
New, Original Series Puts the Spotlight Back On Reality Star Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett Who Proves That You Can Be a Mommy and Still Be a Hottie

NEW YORK – May 8, 2012 – The laugh is back! KENDRA ON TOP, the new WE tv docu-soap showcasing former Playboy model, bestselling author and fitness guru Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett, premieres Tuesday, June 5th at 9 PM ET/PT with 14 episodes, including a one-hour premiere and finale and 12 half-hour episodes. The series will focus on Wilkinson as she “gets her groove back,” and works diligently to balance family, work and her personal ambitions. KENDRA ON TOP from Prometheus Entertainment began production last month and brings viewers back into the fun-loving world of the former playmate and her adorable family.
KENDRA ON TOP will chronicle Kendra’s journey as she dives back into being the bombshell we’ve come to know over the years. Known for being the outrageous sex symbol who once dated Hugh Hefner, Kendra – now a mom to son Hank IV (“Little Hank”) and wife to former NFL player Hank Baskett III – is set to unleash her party girl and prove that she can be a mommy and still be a hottie. Pulled in many directions, she’ll face each challenge and opportunity with an upbeat attitude and an outrageously funny outlook on life. Meanwhile, no longer a star NFL player, Hank must now find a new way to support the lifestyle his family has grown accustomed to. Through it all, viewers will be taken on a wild ride with Kendra and the family, as they weave their way through what their new life has to offer.
Kendra is a staunch business woman laser-focused on building her brand. With Hank looking for work, the bodacious mom is eager to find the next thing that will put her back on top, and bring home the dollars. But is it an expansion of her “Love Candy” romance kits, a return to the pages of Playboy, or a shot at hosting a talk show? The possibilities are endless. On the other side, Hank has decided to make his mark in the entertainment world by auditioning for acting and hosting gigs. But his first audition leaves him feeling unsure of himself and unsure of his place in that world. Let’s not forget Little Hank who is growing up fast and ready for pre-school. Change is in the air for the Wilkinson-Baskett family and Kendra and Hank will face life’s new adventures with the love, humor and that contagious laugh audiences love.
