It's not what you think.
Reports are claiming Hank Baskett failed a lie detector test while filming Marriage Boot Camp with wife Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett, but E! News learns that's not the case. Hank never even took the test.
"By far, the most intense day of filming was when Kendra heard the audio tapes of Hank and Ava [Sabrina London]. She had a total breakdown. It took a wound that had slowly been healing and tore it right open," a source tells us. "Not long after that, the lie detector issue came up. It's something they do on the show every season. Hank, however, was advised by his attorney not to take it. So he didn't. He never took it."
A second source echoes that statement by telling E! News, "Hank was advised not to take the lie detector test because his legal team had contacted the FBI about Ava. He was advised not to talk about anything related to the investigation."
Kendra and Hank's time filming Marriage Boot Camp (which will air during the show's third season) "was filled with highs and lows. However, through it all, they shared the same room and the same bed," the first source continues to tell us.
And things seemed to be looking up for the duo. "There wasn't a vow renewal in the traditional sense. At the end of every season, the couples are asked by Marriage Boot Camp directors Jim and Elizabeth if they want to recommit to each other or not. It's a ceremony, yes, but there was no second wedding. Kendra and Hank did agree to recommit to each other."
The insider adds, "It's clear they still have a long road ahead, but they did end filming with the intention of working things out."
"I'm not making a rash decision, divorcing or staying with him," Wilkinson-Baskett recently told E! News. "I'm trying to let things happen naturally, let things play out a little longer."
"I found myself in a position where it came down to literally a signature for the divorce to go through and something held me back," Wilkinson-Baskett explained. "Something a bit more powerful pulled me away from doing that and the power I believe is my heart."
