Sliding Into Home by Kendra Wilkinson, Jon Warech

KENDRA BARES ALL

 

Fans of the E! smash hit series The Girls Next Door fell in love with sporty Playboy beauty Kendra Wilkinson’s care- free spirit, infectious laugh, and down-to-earth nature. Now that she’s moved out of the world’s most famous bachelor pad and into her own delightfully chaotic world on Kendra as wife to NFL star Hank Baskett and mother to their newborn son, we’ve watched her hilarious antics as she adjusts to domestic life. But how much do we really know about the fun-loving star? In this humorous and optimistic, sometimes heartbreaking, but always unfailingly honest memoir, Kendra reveals the highs and lows of her extraordinary journey.

 

She wasn’t always the quintessential girl next door. Before she was a reality television superstar, Hugh Hefner’s girlfriend, or one of the most popular Playboy cover models ever, Kendra was an athletic tomboy whose father walked out on her family when she was a little girl. She grew into a rebellious teenager with a serious drug habit before she quit cold turkey and beat the odds to graduate from a high school that almost didn’t give her a second (or third, or fourth) chance.

 

Following her rocky teenage years, an out-of-the- blue phone call from Hugh Hefner changed everything. Kendra dishes candidly about life in the Playboy Mansion: the sex, the parties, the show, and even her relationships with her Girls Next Door costars—Hef, Holly, and Bridget. She tells the true story about how she and Hank met and built a relationship in secret while she was still Hef’s girl- friend and a public face of Playboy. Finally, she reflects on the slew of unexpected changes in the short space of a year that have brought her sliding into home from Playboy party girl to wife and mother with a blooming Hollywood career. If you think you’ve seen all of Kendra, think again. She’s only warming up. . . .

Loved the book. Read it in less than a day. Great insight at the girl behind the camera. Great insight onto the road that lead her to the girl, wife, and mother she is today. about her feelings and how she dealt with the struggles of her life. Less detail about the Playboy years but yet you still won't be disappointed. Cute about learning about her current life but not that much. I hope she does a second book. Overall great read.

At first I was not sure if I wanted to read this book, but I took a chance.. and glad I did. This book was easy to read, and have a great back story of the life and childhood of Kendra Wilkinson. I view her in a totally different light now, and she's way more then what you see on TV! I would recommend this book to anyone!

I hesitated buying this book because I thought it wouldn't be that good, but it is very well written and it's as if she's saying it to you! She is honest about her past and yes she's 25, but had more experiences and made more mistakes than most people have that are 40, so that said don't judge someone who's open and honest with their mistakes-we all can learn from then if we are willing. I read this book in a few days;would have read sooner but I work full time. I have friends who asked to borrow after I was done. Can't wait for the next book.

I read this book at the ER while waiting with a friend. It truly was all that was available. She's a fairly brainless, shallow girl who seems as though she's looking for validation. I'm sure she'll be validated by some, but she is a prime example of the dumbing down of young people. I hope any young girls that read this are mature enough to understand that only 1 in million girls grab the money that she has without an education. Far better to stay in school. I can't help but feel that this book is nothing but a justification for her drug use and her flashing her naked self all over, as it was her only way out. Too bad she never learned how to think and use her brain. She comes off sounding like trailer trash. I never watched her show, but if it's as dumbed down as this book, no wonder we have so many out of work with no skills.

Words cannot explain how much I dislike Kendra Wilkinson.

I wish the people out there that didn't enjoy Kendra's life story (up to this point in her life anyway) would stop being negative and let the people out there read the book without first reading your comment telling them "not to waste their money" . Many reviews were totally out of line and incorrect. Kendra's father left more than once, and that is why there are different AGES that he left- so who ever it was that wrote about that can go back and pay closer attention to what they are reading- DID you even read it?? Also, someone said that she was too young to write about her life at age 25- WELL that's funny because she did it and A LOT OF PEOPLE enjoy her and loved her story. Actually, I am sure many people out there are hoping for another book. That same person called her "dumb" and I say there is NOTHING dumb about making money! She has a child to raise and she is actually really SMART for writing this book the way she did AND already at AGE 25- because now she can write another one when she is 30 and Hank JR. is 5. It is a great book and hard to put down. It IS OKAY FOR TEENS UNDER 18 TO READ THIS!! IT will teach young girls/guys to LISTEN TO YOUR HEART and FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS~ and that drugs/sex will get you nowhere in life- except into trouble and they are not worth your time. SO those of you making comments about the age of the readers- you are totally wrong and you obviously have no idea what kids are doing at such young ages these days- GET A CLUE! They are going to be around it anyway, so why keep them from reading about it? It says nothing about her looks or "being beautiful will get you whatever you want in life"- so the people that wrote that are confused and just insecure with themselves. Very sad. Read something else if you don't like what hot chicks that have a bright future ahead of them have to say. -Okay so I could go on all night but I will stop there. Just be nice, or don't say anything at all. That is my message.

This book is heartfelt and touching. Kendra doesn't hold back in allowing the reader to know her entire life story. I was surprised about the revelations of what actually happened at the Playboy mansion and also shocked that Hugh Hefner would allow these truths to be told. I admire Kendra for how far she has come. I hope she continues to see success. She has certainly changed quite a bit and appears to be very happy with her husband and being a mother. Keep it up!

I personally love watching Kendra's show every sunday night on E! so I couldn't wait for this book to come out! I finished reading it the day I started because it was so interesting! I always wanted to know what happened behind the doors at the Playboy Mansion. I could not put this book down! Being a teenager I did not take this book as what I should do in my own life. After reading about her past, I did not want to become a stripper and think that I was going to be discovered. People who think that is going to happen are very unrealistic or know girls who are very easily influenced. Also, I did not have any problems reading this book. Nothing was confusing or contradicting. If you actually read the book it says how she was first a dental assistant and then became a stripper. She did both at different times in her life. Her father was in and out of her life so there was never a definite age. Although she is still young, I believe that she has a lot of experience and definitely has an interesting story to tell! I mean how many people have lived in the Playboy Mansion before? If you watch the show, then you see how she tells her ghost writer exactly what she wants in it and reviews the book with him, so it is an autobiography. It came from her mouth! I would only recommend this book if you actually like Kendra and have an open mind.

i love Kendra Wilkinson sliding into home is great I'm not quite done with the book yet but it is so good and hell of funny i didn't know that the girls had a nine o clock curfew i thought that was crazy because they are grown women but i guess that's the way Hef wants it the 1,000 a week allowance is cool. i so recomened this book if you like kendra or the girls next door or if you really want to know what goes down in the playboy mansion then you need to go pick up this book.

Everyone needs to quit hating on Kendra! The main reason why I love her and have been a fan since her GND days is because she's so real. She did not have an easy life like most people and is not like many celebrities out there. She is real enough to tell her life story, not only on her show but in her books as well. I don't think many celebrities out there would do that. Yes, there are reality shows, but the issues she faces on her show with her friends and family are more realistic, because they are things that everyone goes through. The fact that she is as young as she and has written 2 books now, proves how far she has come in her life.  She's very heroic to me with everything she has gone through not only as a celebrity, but as a mother and a wife.  She is not fake in any way whatsoever, the fact that she shares so many details about her everyday life on her reality show proves that. She has stayed strong despite those who are against her. With everything that is aired on television today, you're worried about a little honesty? With everything that exists on the internet and is shared on social media these days and is easily accessible by children, you think she is a bad influence? Everything that she has gone through makes her HUMAN. Kids today are influenced much more by what is seen in the movies than what they read in books.  Seriously, this is the least of your worries. In my opinion, we could all use a little more honesty like hers in today's age.
