Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett may have stripped down a swimsuit to host a 4th of July pool party in Vegas this weekend, but as of this morning she was back to business promoting her book on the Today show.

Covered up in a surprisingly modest floral shift during her appearance, Kendra told Kathie Lee and Hoda about the moment she had to reveal her stripper past to her mother just before the release of Sliding Into Home.

So was mom shocked?

Um, no.

"I was embarrassed about it and didn't want to tell my mom," Kendra told the ladies. But her mother was pretty clued in. "She was like 'Kendra, I knew the day you walked into that strip club, OK?'"

And the book isn't the only thing the sexy reality star is promoting this week—her workout video, Be A Knockout with Kendra, is available just in the time for bikini season.
