Baby Weight Blues

Further proving that reality-show personalities are real people, too, Kendra Wilkinson is having a heck of a time losing her baby weight.

Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriend packed on the pounds while pregnant with the son of her football-playing husband, Hank Baskett.

Although four months is hardly considered a long time for regular moms, Wilkinson lives her life in front of E!’s reality TV cameras and fans expected her to quickly bounce back, post-baby.

Unfortunately for her (but fortunately for women everywhere who endure the same struggles), she’s still packing the extra lbs, and—gasp!—pool season is here.

Wilkinson claims she likes her new (natural) curves, figuring they’re a nice addition to the ones her plastic surgeon gave her.

Still, the once-petite Playboy model looked rather uncomfortable at Wet Republic on March 27, covered up and all but forced to don a black one-piece bathing suit. Things didn’t improve when her former Playboy Mansion housemate Holly Madison showed up to say hello and show off her still-very-pool-worthy-and-bikini-friendly bod.
