On Monday’s episode of "Kendra" on E!, Hank Baskett spoke frankly about his first two years of marriage, and hitting “the absolute bottom” with his wife Kendra Wilkinson.
In a rare heart-to-heart with friend and Philadelphia Eagles player Jon Dorenbos, Baskett discussed the dreaded “D-Word” and the effect merely uttering the phrase had had on his relationship with Wilkinson. “There was one day. We actually got into an argument so bad... I got so worried that I was going to lose my family.”
“We survived that, because we said from the get-go…never say the 'D-Word': divorce,” said Baskett, who plays football for the Minnesota Vikings.
Wilkinson admitted that she has used the “D-Word” twice in the past, but will never say it again: “The word divorce should never be used. It shouldn’t,” she said.
The former Playboy playmate now finds other things to say instead of “divorce” in their arguments— for example, “F*** you, “ or “I hate you." Profanity is preferable to the “D-Word”, according to her husband: “That’s better," Baskett agreed.
