Kendra Wilkinson walked down the aisle on Saturday at an unusual wedding locale: the Playboy Mansion. The Playmate married Philadelphia wide receiver Hank Baskett in front of five hundred guests, including Kendra’s “ex-boyfriend,” Hugh Hefner, and former “Girls Next Door” co-stars Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt.
Wilkinson, 24, wore more than $100,000 worth of platinum and diamond jewelry by designer Michael Barin. She personally selected the 4.25-carat platinum drop earrings ($47,000), the 2.5-carat platinum pendant ($33,700) and the 4.5-carat bracelet ($21,000).
Her brother Colin walked her down the aisle (Hef was originally slated to do the honor but Wilkinson changed her mind).
The couple became engaged last November, and announced they were expecting their first child earlier this month. The baby is due around Christmas.
Just two days after the unexpected death of his son, Joe Jackson showed up on the red carpet at the BET Awards smiling like a madman. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the always-classy Joe used the appearance to promote his record label.
When asked by CNN how he was doing, Joe replied, “I’m great! My family’s doing pretty good!”
Madonna and three year old daughter Mercy made their first public appearance together over the weekend. Mercy rode piggyback on Madonna out of the Kabbalah Centre, followed by Madonna’s ex-husband, Guy Ritchie, and daughter Lourdes.
