Kendra Wilkinson on Her Post-Baby Body: "My Curves Shocked Me"

After giving birth to son Hank Baskett IV last December, reality star Kendra Wilkinson went from a toned and taut size two up a few sizes into uncharted territory. “My curves shocked me big-time,” admits the E! star. “It was a whole other woman I was looking at in the mirror.” While Kendra is enjoying her new “different” body, she’s looking forward to getting that tone back. “About two months ago, I stopped making excuses. It’s time to get out there and really bust my ass like I used to,” she says of her now hour-long workouts at the gym and new healthier eating habits, which include salads, grilled chicken and chewing gum to curb cravings. “I was so used to being fit and skinny,” she says. “I never had to lose weight until now. I want my muscle back–I don’t want anything jiggling. Cardio for me is number one. I need the cardio because I can tone my body, but I gotta burn the fat off!” One step in the right direction? “We didn’t have my stripper pole in my house ever since I gave birth, now we’re going hang it up. I feel sexy again.” –Jennifer Garcia

OMG. If I hear about one more “celebrity” talking about their baby weight, their “curves” or losing their baby weight, I am going to SCREAM. Millions of women have babies every day. You had a baby. You gained some weight doing so. MOVE ON and talk about something different.

I am so tired of Kendra talking about her body. She doesn’t lead a glamorous life anymore and she’ll do anything to get publicity. She bores me.

You go Kendra, she looks great. Kelly is a hater!

Kelly you are obviously a miserable person maybe hanging over the toilet everyday with your finger down your throat to call Kendra Fat..
She is not Fat, she looks great and why do women and young girls constantly insult other woman and how they look? Could it be ones own insecurity?
You should build each other up and npt tear each other down because of you jealousy and insecure ways. You will find to compliment another will make you also feel good. Try it and you will see.
Keep up wth good work Kendra.. :)

OMG How dumb is this? Whats wrong with women just being who they are? Why do we do we all have to be toned anorexic models. Thanks for giving young girls more reasons to have eating disorders!

You feel like every other woman out there who has had a child and is still trying to lose the baby weight. Don’t stress it…You look wonderful, you have Hank’s support and beautiful Hank jr. to love you through it all. I wish everyone would stop judging her. She’s doing what everyone does with the exception that her life is taped. That is a job for her to earn income and if she speaks real life scenarios, then so be it. At least her show can actually live up to the title “Reality TV”. So what if its not about elaborate vacations or living in the mansion or having chefs, maids and every other luxury she once had. I actually prefer her new show to the old one because at least we get to see who she REALLY is and the big heart she really has. So many other women on here, especially those who ARE moms, can completely relate to Kendra’s insecurities about her appearance. Maybe if women started giving props to one another instead of tearing each other down, there would be a lot less drama in the world. Kendra…keep doing you. SO you don’t have the same exact size and shape, but you have an amazing family and you’ll get there one step at a time. No need to rush…you’ve got enough fan support out there…plus the love of your family to keep you lifted up through all of it. You’re a great mom, don’t listen to all the haters out there..Stay strong and beautiful!! :)

Kendra’s ignorance shocks me!

I think she looks more beautiful with curves. I cant stand woman who think they look good when all they are is a skeleton. Its not sexy and not healthy.
