Kendra Wilkinson hospitalized briefly after car accident

Kendra Wilkinson was reportedly hospitalized briefly on Sunday following a car accident, but on Monday morning she rebounded with a thankful tweet.

“Thank you for all well wishes,” she wrote. “Just really reminded me how fragile life really is and how important love really is.”


The “Girls Next Door” and “Kendra” star was spotted heading into Providence Tarzana Medical Center early Sunday, according to Us Weekly, which also had a source saying the 27-year-old was “really sore” and “in shock” after a bad car accident in Tarzana. After her injuries were determined not to be serious, she was released.

Wilkinson, the former Hugh Hefner girlfriend who’s now married to former NFL player Hank Baskett III and mom to 3-year-old Hank Baskett IV, recently quit the ABC diving competition show “Splash” because she was afraid of heights -- a fear she was trying to beat with her son’s support.

“No joke, I start spinning, I start wanting to throw up, I’m shaking, my fingers wiggle,” she told E! News recently. “It’s like a real thing, when my fingers wiggle -- that’s, like, a truth.”

She apologized after the show for letting fans down when she walked away from a high dive, calling it a “big mistake” signing up for the show.
