Kendra Wilkinson gets candid about her mental health struggles

Kendra Wilkinson thought her life was going to end!

The reality star finally started speaking about her mental health battle that left her hospitalized two times last year.

In a new interview with People on Tuesday, she said,

“I was dying of depression. I was hitting the end of my life, and I went into psychosis,”

“I felt like I wasn’t strong enough to live anymore.”

The 38-year-old also rushed herself to the emergency room in September 2023 after suffering a panic attack. It was due to the stress of being a single mom to two young kids while trying to maintain her real estate career.

An insider reported at the time that the Kendra on Top alum was “desperate for help” and allegedly “pleading” for a doctor.

She told the outlet of her thoughts around the time of her hospitalization,

“It was the lowest place I’ve ever been in my life. I felt like I had no future. I couldn’t see in front of my depression,”

“I was giving up and I couldn’t find the light. I had no hope.”

Wilkinson shares son Hank IV, 14, and daughter Alijah Mary, 9, with ex-husband Hank Baskett. She added,

 “I was trying to fight it on my own. I was trying to cure it on my own and you can’t do that.”

The former reality star continued,

“I was isolating, hiding, blaming myself, blaming the world. I was spiraling out of control and I felt like I wasn’t strong enough to survive.”

She also admitted that a new beginning took place when her ex-husband was willing to take her to the hospital. She said,

“Hank driving me to the hospital that day was out of care. It wasn’t out of marriage,”

What caused Kendra to be depressed in the first place?

During her second hospitalization, Wilkinson was prescribed the antipsychotic medication Abilify. To make things better, she also began outpatient therapy three times a week at UCLA.

It was there that her remorse, guilt, and self-hatred she felt from her teenage years, her time at the Playboy mansion — which she said “messed her whole life up” — and her divorce, started chipping away.

The former playmate said,

“I didn’t realize how bad I was suffering or what people were seeing of me until I got there,”

“I had to really look in the mirror and be like, ‘I need help.’”

Last year in November, Kendra shared on Instagram that she just finished treatment for her depression and anxiety.

She said,

“Being a solo act can get heavy sometimes and life can get challenging but i do the best I can and push with positive energy,”

“Back on my feet. Happily working in real estate, taking care of my babies and myself. Great friends. Heart is full of gratitude!!! ☀️.”

Though Wilkinson knows that it will take time for her depression to go away, she is doing her best to ”learn to work with it and accept it.”

The realtor said,

“What therapy did was that it built this tool system for me,”

“So now I have the strength — I have the strength and the foundation I need to overcome my depression.”
