Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett is owning up to—and breaking down over—her past indiscretions.

In her first interview since her sex tape surfaced, the E! reality star sits down with Ryan Seacrest to discuss the fallout in an exclusive interview with E! News.

"It's extremely embarrassing," she admits of the footage featuring her 18-year-old self with an ex-boyfriend. "I am a very open person, I am very honest about my life, but a sex tape was definitely not what I wanted in my life."

Wilkinson-Baskett says that having to tell her hubby, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett, with whom she has an infant son, Hank Jr., news that Vivid Entertainment planned to release the six-year-old tape was heartbreaking.

"It just had to come out now when I finally cleaned up my life," she says, choking up. "It wasn't for anybody else's eyes to see except for ours."

For more from the explosive sit-down, tune in to E! News Tuesday night at 7 p.m. ET/PT and afterwards check out E! Online for the complete, unedited interview.
