E! Stars WATN Week, E! Stars Where are they now? Theme Week, Badge

Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett has come a long way since Girls Next Door.

But in an exclusive E! News interview with Zuri Hall in honor of E! Stars: Where Are They Now? week, the reality star is taking us on a walk down memory lane and reminiscing about her experiences on the show that made her a household name and ultimately launched her career.

"My favorite thing, at one point, living in the mansion was obviously the parties and the first-class traveling," Kendra explains. "Taking these extreme private jets with two master bedrooms, flying around the world, going and meeting the prince and doing all luxurious stuff."

"The last year living there my whole mind changed," she continues. "You know what my favorite part of living there was? Hef. At first, it wasn't. I moved into the Playboy Mansion at 18 years old. I went in for the party, but I left with a best friend."

Girls Next Door, Kendra

Kendra also gets candid while opening up about the best and worst parts of filming the E! reality show with Hugh Hefner, Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt.

"The best part about doing Girls Next Door was getting paid!" she admits, adding," The worst part about the show is it became a little competitive. Everybody at that moment wanted to be more famous than the other and stick out more than the other and have their own image."

"It was hard because none of us signed up to be a celebrity," she adds. "We signed up to be Hef's girlfriends and that's the difference."

But it wasn't all negative. In fact, Kendra laughs while recalling a hilarious moment with…Jennifer Lopez's booty?!

"I met J. Lo's butt," she explains. "I didn't meet J. Lo herself, but I met her butt. It talked to me! She wasn't at the mansion. We were at a party. We went to all these really cool parties and all of a sudden I'm eating and I look over and J. Lo's butt is in my face!"

However, the outspoken mother of two plays coy as Zuri asks her to reveal her craziest, naughtiest moment while living in the Playboy Mansion. "I'm glad all my nights in the grotto weren't recorded," she jokes.

Despite her past wild memories, Kendra shares a sweet story of bringing her children—Hank Jr. and Alijah—to swim in the infamous grotto.

"We went for a day and little Hank got in the pool and I got in the pool and we were just chilling and it was so cool," she says. "It was such a beautiful thing. It just showed me how far life has come for me."

But her all-time favorite memory at the Playboy Mansion is most definitely marrying husband Hank Baskett. "Having sex in the limo on the way back to the back to the hotel was also the best part!" she adds. LOL!
