And the story is…pretty cray.
As you know, for the Baskett/Wilkinson family, last year was all about the birth of their baby Alijah and…Hank Baskett having an affair with a transgender model while his wife Kendra Wilkinson was eight months pregnant. You know, 2014 stuff.
Now, one year later, the two are finally coming clean about what really happened on that fateful day, and it’s up to us whether this story is insane or somewhat believable. People reports:
Last April, Baskett says he encountered a couple in a grocery store parking lot smoking marijuana. The former football player, 32, says he approached the couple to buy some pot; they gave him a phone number to call and, when he did, he was provided an address. Once he showed up at the home, Baskett says he used the restroom and when he emerged, “I saw something I thought I would never see in my life.”
Baskett says the person who answered the door, a transgender woman, was nude and making out with another transgender woman. “I froze,” says Baskett, visibly shaking as he recalls the memory. Then, the woman who answered the door approached Baskett and fondled him through his basketball shorts.
“I didn’t engage in anything,” he says. “It was like a bank robbery. You never know when you’ll freeze. I don’t know if it was a couple of seconds or 15 seconds, because all I was saying was get out, get out, get out.”
Baskett says he was so humiliated and distraught by the incident that he initially couldn’t open up about the truth to his family or friends, even when news of the encounter broke two months later. “I was this big former football player,” he says. “I was the alpha male. I could do anything to protect my family but I couldn’t protect myself.”
After the initial media onslaught, just five weeks after Alijah’s birth, a blindsided Wilkinson “went ballistic,” she says. The Kendra on Top, 30, star kicked Baskett out, flushed her wedding rings down the toilet and threatened divorce. “I couldn’t control my emotions.”
But when Baskett finally worked up the courage to be honest, Wilkinson was understanding, even sympathetic. “Hank was very naïve and gullible,” she says. “He thinks everybody is his friend. That led him to the hell that we’ve lived.”
Something about this doesn’t add up- watching a transgender couple “make out” doesn’t count as a scandal, or an affair. And why would Hank use some creepy random bathroom of a place he was trying to buy pot at? I dunno but it seems, a little too “Hank the innocent” for me.
Do you believe this story?
