Kendra Wilkinson’s Parents’ 20-Year Feud Reignites on ‘Kendra on Top’ (VIDEO) — Exclusive
For months, Kendra Wilkinson has been up and down in her relationship with previously-estranged mom Patti Wilkinson.
But now, the drama is between Patti and Kendra’s dad, Eric — and it all goes down on this week’s Kendra on Top.
As we saw last week, the former Girls Next Door star invited both her parents to the opening night of her Las Vegas show.
The only problem? Her mom doesn’t want to be in the presence of her ex-husband.
“I don’t know if I can be in the same room as the sperm donor,” she zinged.
She continued, “Now that he’s going, I’m having second thoughts.”
In an exclusive sneak peek of Friday’s (August 11) episode, Eric learns of his former wife’s hesitancy to attend, which totally baffles him.
“Why would that matter? I mean, I haven’t seen your mom in almost 20 years. I have no issues with her being here,” he points out.
The 32-year-old agrees, saying, “The fact that she’s hesitant about coming because you’re here is ridiculous.”
Her dad seems to have a good perspective on the situation, noting that this isn’t about their former marital issues or divorce, so they should both be able to support their child.
“It just really sucks that I don’t know if I’m going to have both parents in the audience for the opening of my show now because they can’t get along,” Mrs. Baskett bemoans.
The worried reality star wonders aloud what would happen if her mom came in and sat close to her father and his second wife.
He responds, “I would make an attempt or an effort to just walk up and say hi. I would congratulate her on raising an amazing daughter.”
Kendra seems happy to hear that, though she does seem skeptical that her dad will be able to handle it if her mom causes drama.
“My dad is not about conflict, he’s a nice guy, he never means any harm,” she tells the WE tv cameras.
“So when there’s drama, he runs. That’s what happened with him and my mom, he couldn’t stand the conflict so he ran.”
“I’m really afraid that if something wrong were to happen on opening night, he would just turn around and run away,” she concludes.
Will her mom show up to the show? And what will happen between Kendra’s parents? Tune in Friday, and check out the full clip below!
Kendra on Top airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on WE tv.
