The plot thickens. It turns out that Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson, who's rumored to be dating Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett, attended Sunday's Eagles/Steelers game wearing a midriff-baring No. 84 Baskett jersey. Wilkinson, whose mother Patti was an Eagles cheerleader, is one of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner's alleged live-in girlfriends, and co-stars on E!'s "The Girls Next Door." In a video interview with Eagles Insider Dave Spadaro, Wilkinson says she met Baskett "at a golf tournament. He's a great guy, he plays with heart," she said, adding that she hoped Baskett has a good game (which he did) and hoped Donovan throws to him (which he did). Click here to watch the interview. Baskett has said the pair are "good, good friends," and our repeated efforts to reach Wilkinson through Playboy publicists have been unsuccessful.
UPDATE: On Monday night, the Playmate posted on her MySpace blog, “hiiiiii just wanna let yall know that i am not engaged! if i was id be very happy though n i wouldnt hide it..hahahahaha!!!!!.” The post, which went on to say that “love is a beautiful thing n i think the world needs more of it. lol,” was removed from her page by this afternoon. While Wilkinson denied an internet rumor she and Baskett were engaged, she did not deny they are dating. No word on why the post was taken down, though we suspect it may have been requested by Playboy, which, along with “Girls Next Door,” keeps up the perception that Wilkinson is romantically involved with Hefner.
