    So, wait, does this mean that reality television isn't always real?! Get out!

    E! News has learned from a source that despite the drama in their marriage right now, Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett and Hank Baskett have had to play nice for the cameras while shooting their reality show Kendra on Top. In fact, they even put on a fake family gathering.

    "The barbecue was definitely staged for the show. Things are not good between them," the source tells E! News. "Hank is an emotional guy and wants things to work out between them and still hopes that they will, he'd do anything to get her back."

    But it doesn't seem to be working. "Kendra has already been meeting with divorce attorneys trying to get her ducks in a row so that she can proceed once the show ends," the source adds. "Kendra and Hank have not been sleeping in the same bed, he's been sleeping on the couch quite a bit, anywhere other than with her."

    Although this stage of their relationship can't be easy, the insider does share that "Kendra is a really happy person and is in great spirits. She is completely over Hank. Whenever she goes out, she'll check out the scene and joke around about looking for cute guys," adding, "She is doing really well, and very focused on her children and making sure they're comfortable."

    Kendra's rep had no comment.

    The couple, who have been the subject of reported marital strife for over nearly two months now, have announced that they will let their relationship problems play out on the upcoming third season of her reality show.

    "We are currently in production on season three, which will premiere in the fall," a spokesperson for the WE show tells E! News. "We have always followed and will continue to follow the reality of Kendra."

    "Everything's going to be addressed on the show, warts and all," a source previously told us. "Production had already been filming Kendra before the scandal broke, so you're really going to see her reaction to everything from the ground up. Nothing about it is inauthentic. The cameras have been there through it all. It's been devastating."
