Wilkinson’s reality show, “Kendra” has been a hit for E! Television since it premiered on the network.
“We know that Kendra has millions of fans and we feel that it's rare to find well-produced, hardcore footage of a star of her magnitude,” Vivid’s Steven Hirsch said. “The tape was brought to us by a third party and after consulting with our attorneys, we are confident in our right to distribute it. We've been trying to reach Kendra but have so far been unsuccessful. We therefore made the decision to release 'Kendra Exposed' to stores across the country by the end of May. We believe this could be our all time best selling celebrity tape.”
Vivid says the tape was made before she was engaged to and then married Philadelphia Eagles receiver Hank Baskett. The name of her sex partner in the video, which was shot before she moved into the Playboy mansion, has not been revealed.
Prior to “Kendra,” Wilkinson was on E!’s “Girls Next Door” and featured on “E! True Hollywood Story.”
“Kendra Exposed” will be distributed under the Vivid-Celeb imprint.
