Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett is fired up!

After audio tapes were released that seemed to confirm her husband Hank Baskett cheated on her with a transsexual woman, the Kendra on Top star is setting the record straight about the content.

"This is [a] straight setup and if anybody's listening to this and thinking, ‘oh, he's guilty,' who's the one guilty? The one that's setting up this blackmail," she told E! News. "That's the one who should be in jail right now."

Kendra, who admitted to listening to the tapes herself, says that the footage left her feeling calmer than expected.

"I actually didn't even care. It was nothing," she confessed. "It didn't even do anything. It didn't make anything worse. It was just recycled crap."

She added, "It was premeditated. I feel like celebrities right now have a big target on their heads and blackmail is to follow."

Some may thing Kendra's response suggests remorse for her husband.  In reality, the proud mom simply wants to give her relationship a little bit more time.

"I'm not making a rash decision, divorcing or staying with him," she said. "I'm trying to let things happen naturally, let things play out a little longer."

That certainly doesn't mean she hasn't been close to ending the marriage for good. In fact, the WE TV reality star came this close to signing some very important documents.

"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," she explained. "Something a bit more powerful pulled me away from doing that and the power I believe is my heart."

Today, Kendra says things are slowly improving and she's a little "more on Hank's team." But for now, the reality star is taking things day by day.

"I can't just show the pretty and the perfect. I have to show what we're really going through and I have faith," she explained about her WE TV series. "Everyone's given a heart to forgive at least once in their lives and I believe this is the chance to use my heart I was given."
