Wilkinson and her two co-stars, however, were ready to take on new roles. In October of 2008, shortly after fellow girlfriend Holly Madison announced her break-up with Hefner, Wilkinson also made an announcement of her own: that she was engaged to Philadelphia Eagles receiver Hank Baskett. Hefner gave the couple his blessing, and announced that the wedding was to take place at the Playboy Mansion. It was also said that Hefner would give the bride away,
but Wilkinson later expressed second thoughts on the matter, saying that her brother may perform the honor instead.
Wilkinson's co-star, Marquardt, also announced her departure from the show and the mansion later that year. Despite this, Hefner confirmed that the three girls are committed to a sixth season, though he has established that there will be three new live-in girlfriends.
In the meantime, Wilkinson has also managed to score her own spin-off; the show Kendra looks at Wilkinson's life after leaving the Playboy Mansion. The first episode premiered on June 7, 2009, and was the highest-rated reality-show debut for the network since the popular The Anna Nicole Show.
