The former Girls Next Door star, who as bared in all and gotten naked in the pages of Playboy, has nothing but kind words to say about the headline-making "Wrecking Ball" singer and her love of shocking fans.
"She's a very good example," Wilkinson-Baskett told E! News exclusively last night at Jennifer Love Hewitt's A Pea in the Pod L by Jennifer Love Hewitt maternity clothing line laugh party. "As much as we think she's crazy, I think she's a good example. Let's not be so trapped in a box. I'm going to teach my daughter that way: be who you want to be. Society's going to put these rules on you but if you have this feeling that you need to do whatever it is, do it."
The very pregnant star went on, "Now, I'm not saying drugs. I'm not saying that I'm pushing her or inviting her to a bad world. What I'm saying is we're all human. We're all going to go through those stages at one point of our lives. Is it going to be later or is it going to be earlier? Eventually, they will go through it."
However, Wilkinson-Baskett says Cyrus shouldn't strip down naked for the cover of Playboy.
"The thing about Miley is she doesn't need to pose for Playboy," she dished. "She's getting whatever it is out of her system, she's being the person she wants to be and that's the way I looked at it when I was doing what I was doing. There's different ways of doing that: there's expressing it loudly and then there's expressing it privately but in Playboy!"
