The former Playboy Playmate hadn’t seen her father Eric for over two decades. But this Friday’s episode of her reality show Kendra On Top will see the star and her dad meet up in Costa Rica. And speaking about the reunion, Kendra revealed it was Eric who contacted her following allegations that her husband Hank Baskett cheated on her with a transgender model.
‘I hadn't seen him in 20 years, but I had no fear anymore’
"Every single year I think about my dad," Kendra told People.com. "I wondered, 'Do I want to go reunite with him on camera?' Before this drama happened, my dad said he would rather do this in private. But when this scandal hit with Hank, he called me right away and was like, 'Bring the cameras.'"
However, despite the troubles in her personal life, Kendra admits it was actually that situation that encouraged her to embark on a reunion with her father.
The mother-of-two adds that her marriage difficulties have proved to be a test of character that have made her an even stronger person.
"If it wasn't for this mess with Hank, I would have never had the courage and the strength to go to my dad,” Kendra said. “I hadn't seen him in 20 years, but I had no fear anymore. And I couldn't be more proud of myself. I am so excited that I did that for myself as a human being.”
“It was the most important, most amazing week of my entire life.”
And the reunion went so well that Kendra and Eric continue to maintain their relationship. Kendra adds that the pair are still in daily contact.
“We're talking almost every day, emailing each other almost every day, and sending each other photos," she said.
