LOS ANGELES (AP) - One of Hugh Hefner's live-in girlfriends is
trading the grotto for the gridiron.
The Playboy mogul said in a statement Thursday that "The Girls
Next Door" co-star Kendra Wilkinson is engaged to Philadelphia
Eagles receiver Hank Baskett. The 23-year-old model-actress has
lived with Hefer since 2004 and currently co-stars as one of his
three girlfriends in the E! reality series.
"I have given her my blessing and will be giving her away at a
very special wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming
June," Hefner said.
The 82-year-old publisher's love life has been in flux. Last
month, he and "number one" girlfriend Holly Madison called it
quits. Twin 19-year-olds Karissa and Kristina Shannon are currently
living with Hefner.
