Kendra may have tried to sell sex tape she’s now trying to block

Former Girl Next Door and Hugh Hefner girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson, who currently stars in her own E! series Kendra, may have tried to sell the sex tape that will be released later this month and that she’s now trying to block.

Vivid Entertainment will be releasing the hardcore porn film “Kendra Exposed” this month, and said in a statement that “The tape was brought to us by a third party and after consulting with our attorneys, we are confident in our right to distribute it. We’ve been trying to reach Kendra but have so far been unsuccessful.” Vivid’s founder told Radar, “We believe this could be our all time best selling celebrity tape. … We know that Kendra has millions of fans and we feel that it’s rare to find well-produced, hardcore footage of a star of her magnitude.”

That’s despite the fact that “Kendra has hired one of Los Angeles’ best law firms, Lavely & Singer, to try to block the tape, which was made with an ex before Kendra married pro football player Hank Baskett,” according to Radar.

But now, Radar reports that Kendra “was in the process of releasing the tapes herself a year and a half ago” and “a company (which Wilkinson would own and control) would be formed and Wilkinson’s team would shop the tape around soliciting offers. Wilkinson would also be able to mandate how the tape would be edited before it was sent to potential buyers,” and “Wilkinson was figuring out a way to release them herself well into her relationship with the professional football player and even after the couple’s engagement was announced.”

As crazy as that seems, we’ve seen something even more outrageous: a reality star publicly denouncing a sex tape’s release in weird ways all while secretly profiting from it.
