Kendra Wilkinson is making a stand for sexy moms everywhere.
While living in Philadephia, Kendra was so busy learning how to be a new mom- and so unhappy with the extra pound she was carrying-that she stopped paying attention to her body. ” I wanted to sleep and stay in my sweats instead of going to work out, and my body showed it,” she tells In Touch. ” I just kind of gave up.” But Kendra is clearly back at the gym-and eager to show it off. Determined not to feel like a “housewife” anymore, Kendra has done away with sweatpants in favor of sexy clothes, makeup and glamarous hairstyle. ” It makes me feel so great,” she tells In Touch, “It makes me feel more confident”.
Season 3 of Kendra premiered last night, and the former Playmate was concerned about losing her sexiness since becoming a mom. As if she could ever not be sexy?
Anyway, she was concerned and thought perhaps posing for Playboy again would help. While hubby Hank Baskett voiced his reservations, a phone call with radio shock jock Erich “Mancow” Muller pissed her off enough to do it.
When Kendra, 25, said she still gets out and “shakes her ass” sometimes, even though she’s had a baby, Mancow attacked.
“You don’t need to shake your ass anymore,” he told her. “Now, you’re just a mom.”
“You’re married and you got a kid … that’s not what moms do. You can’t be cool as a mom. You can’t be cool with a baby hanging off you and drool on your shirt.”
Hello, don’t you want to knock him out as I do?
So Kendra decided to do the Playboy shoot.
“I need to get back to me again,” she said. “I’ll show the world my new ass and tell them to kiss it!”
In the end, Hank walked in mid-shoot, and they had a heart-to-heart about her decision to do the shoot and why she wasn’t doing it for the right reasons — that she wasn’t doing it for herself, but rather to prove a point.
“I just want to say F-U to the world. Moms can be sexy too.”
Well, thank you Kendra, The Adventurista is all about ” getting your sexy back if that is what you want to do”
There’s nothing that says we have to hide that part of us after we have children. But so many of us do, and so many others want us to … just because we bear children.
Everyone has their own boundaries about what is and isn’t too sexy for them — and many probably wouldn’t pose nude for a magazine whether they had children or not.
But whatever those boundaries may be shouldn’t have to change just because you add a baby to your life.
What do you think — can moms be sexy? Should moms tone the sexy down once they have children?
