Product Description
Kendra Wilkinson has revealed herself before—in the pages of Playboy and on her reality show, Kendra. Now she reveals her private side, sharing the ups and downs, the joys and challenges of motherhood, marriage, and life in the spotlight.

In this intimate follow-up to her New York Times best-seller, Sliding into Home, Kendra confides her most candid thoughts and feelings on her experiences as a new mom, and she divulges her secrets on how to do it all and make it look easy, sexy, and fun—even when it’s not.

Now with a husband and baby in her life, a booming brand to manage, and her own needs to think about too, Kendra is learning the art of balance, sometimes the hard way. Not wanting to pawn her child off to nannies like so many other stars, Kendra relishes the role of supermom—kissing boo-boos, making lunches, scheduling playdates—all while juggling appearances, workout videos, and even training for the ultra-competitive hit show Dancing with the Stars.

While Being Kendra is full of humor and true stories that women can relate to, it’s also a heartrending look at Kendra’s very personal journey through some dark places, including a private struggle with postpartum depression and a very public tussle with post-baby weight loss. Kendra, who has always been known for her athletic (and enhanced) figure, opens up about her efforts to get her bikini body back and the difficulty of not looking sexy, which she believed was her most valuable quality. Her fight to lose weight at any cost, chronicled on the covers of countless magazines, has become yet another triumph for Kendra as she continues to succeed in the face of adversity.

From dental assistant, to Playboy girlfriend and face of a franchise, to wife and new mother, Kendra has embraced what life has thrown at her with determination, fortitude, and a ready laugh. This daring and honest memoir captures Kendra and her family in their best and worst moments as she lives, loves, rebounds, and, ultimately, finds her place in her new world.

A Look Inside Being Kendra

It’s all about multitasking. Fun in the sun with baby Hank at a park in San Diego. His first time at a park and paparazzi, of course, were there! On the set of DWTS. Hmmm... wonder why I’m smiling? Hank Jr. loved this dress, which I wore to the cast reveal of Dancing with the Stars. I think he just liked the sparkles.

And her second book, a follow-up to 2010 s New York Times bestselling Sliding Into Home , will showcase her trademark attitude, optimism, and love for her family while providing even more hilarious, heartwarming, and candid stories of juggling work, marriage, motherhood, and reality television cameras. Kendra - a true free spirit with an infectious laugh and down-to-earth nature - struggled with her new domestic life. But now as she settles into her role as wife and mother, she brings the same sense of humor and determined attitude to her continuing journey, asking herself - what s next? From dental assistant to Playboy girlfriend and face of a franchise to wife and new mother, Kendra has embraced what life has thrown her with grace, fortitude, and a ready laugh. In this book, Kendra looks back at her first two years of motherhood and marriage, and talks openly about the darker side of life in the spotlight: media scrutiny over her weight, her controversial sex tape, and her marriage.

Now, this daringly honest second memoir will capture Kendra and her family in intimate and humorous moments, as she reveals what she knows about living, loving, stumbling, picking herself up again, and ultimately finding her place in the world.
