NEW YORK (CBS) Former Playboy bunny Kendra Wilkinson may say the release of her "Kendra Exposed" video has "broken her heart," but the tape looks ready to break the records as the most downloaded celebrity sex video, if the tabloids are to be believed. Could it wind up being more popular than her reality show on E!?
"It bothers me because people are going to judge me and stuff," she said during taping of her program.
It's not clear if people are judging Kendra harshly, but they seem to be interested in taking a look at the evidence.
In the tape, released yesterday by Vivid Video (we can't link directly to it for obvious reasons), an 18-year-old Kendra is seen working all the Nature Channel positions with a former boyfriend. She is now married to NFL star Hank Baskett and they recently had a child.
"It broke my heart because how can you do that when I have a baby?" Kendra said on her show. "I have a kid. I have a husband. It just sucks. It's the hardest thing to deal with right now, and it's hard on Hank. It's hard on him because it involves another guy and it's hard on him because of our son."
How exactly the tape came onto the market is unclear. Tabloids like Radar have claimed that Kendra is making out like a bandit on the tape's release and that there are more videos of her being shopped. Kendra's attorney fired a "cease and desist" letter at Vivid to stop the tape.
But Vivid founder Steven Hirsch told Celebrity Circuit that their attorneys had given them the green light to release the sex video regardless of how Kendra felt about.
And yesterday they did just that.
