Kendra Wilkinson Baskett


Just call her the Yankee Doodle Comeback!

Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett redeemed herself on Dancing With the Stars last night with an Uncle Sam-infused fox trot, but will the good times last?

If she makes it through tonight's elimination, the E! reality star admits she already has a problem with next week's dance.

Uh-oh. What's wrong now?

Read on to find out...

You were really happy last night.
It was so much fun. We were just so happy. We couldn't have had a better song to comeback with. It's such an uplifting song and dance. There was no way we could be down this week.

When you told me last week you were going to be dancing to a song that you couldn't help but have fun with, I never thought it would be "Yankee Doodle!"
You know, we rehearsed all week but I think I did my best performance of the dance on the floor last night. I also got so much time with little Hank last week. That was really my injection. It was my cure for being happy again. I saw him a lot. I think that was the key for me to be happy dancing.

Did you feel a little bit like Wonder Woman in that outfit?
That was definitely the sexiest outfit so far. I felt so hot in it. You know that expression, you are what you eat? Well, I've learned you are what you wear, too. If I don't feel comfortable, I won't do a good job...I was too covered during the Viennese. It was too much black.

Were you a little jealous that Kirstie Alley got John Travolta to coach her?
No! That's John Travolta and Kirstie Alley. They're the A-Listers. It's awesome that she got him.

What would you do if he walked in on you and Louis practicing?
You know, I see everybody the same. I'd be like, "That's cool," and then just keep going.

Who would you want to get help from?
Shakira! I want her to be my coach. I want her to teach me some moves. Or maybe Beyoncé. One of those girls will do me good.

And what's up for next week?
We have to get past tonight but we don't know for sure yet. We got a little bit of a hint because they gave us our song. I can't say what it is, but it's a song I've always hated. It's the worst song I could ever imagine myself dancing to. We have zero say in what song we get, but we're fighting it. I think we're winning.

If you could dance to "Yankee Doodle," you can dance to anything.
No, no! That's like one of America's anthems. I was proud to dance to that. But this song they're giving us, I even hated growing up. It's from the '80s and it's like nails on a chalkboard for me. I can't get into it at all.
