For all of those who don’t remember, Blair, Vanessa, and Dan have all been accepted to NYU. And it’s being rumored that Olivia will serve as anew love interest for Dan. Ohhhh boy.

Kendra Wilkinson to Get Own Show! February 3, 2009

Filed under: Kendra Wilkinson,TV News — Alexandra @ 2:28 pm


Hugh Hefner’s # 3 ex-girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson is starring in her own show!

Great. Now I get to hear that annoying laugh more often.

The show will follow Kendra post-“breakup,” aka, paying her own bills, doing laundry, grocery shopping — things that were done for her while living at the Playboy Mansion.

However, we will also get to watch her plan her wedding to Philadelphi Eagles football player Hank Baskett. That I’ll watch!

Kendra’s show doesn’t premiere until the fall.

Think it’ll last?

Ahh this is exciting!

Sources close to the show said that George Clooney will indeed appear on the show before the series ends for good later this year. He is expected to film his scenes today and tomorrow.

And not only that, but Julianna Margulies will reprise her role again as well.

An insider told Life & Style, “They are the last two of the original cast to make one last appearance,” the insider says. “It’s part of an effort to wrap up all of the original characters’ story lines.”

The final episode will air on April 2.
