Kendra Wilkinson says people take DWTS too serious and need to lighten up. Especially her. The former Playboy Playmate and current competitor on Dancing With the Stars talks about her experience on the uber-popular dancing competition. See her photos below as well as a video of her Cha-cha with dancing partner Louis Van Amstel on the first week of season 12!
Recently reality television star and former Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson hosted a Spring Break pool party at the Wet Republic pool and bar at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. She looked stunning in white short-shorts with a loose-fitting white top and platform hills and talked about her experiences on Dancing With the Stars.
I need to think, this is the club and I need to go out there and show what I really got,” the reality star – and DWTS contestant – told PEOPLE this weekend, while hosting a party at the MGM Grand’s Wet Republic in Las Vegas.
The Kendra star, 25, who received a lukewarm reception during the first week of the ABC show, said nerves got the better of her and that that she simply needs to let loose and remind herself that she’ll never be a professional ballroom dancer.
“I hate how everyone is taking this so serious. People just need to relax and look at it as entertainment, as funny, as fun,” she said. “Don’t look at it like we’re supposed to be pros.”
She looked plenty loose to me in her performance, but maybe she gets looser than that.
“I lived at the Playboy Mansion, and I was dolled up every now and then. This is like intense dolled up, blue eyeshadow and hair out to outer space,” she said. “I didn’t even recognize myself on TV. I was like, who is that? I looked like a mermaid.”
She also said that she feels Kirsty Alley is her biggest competition in the show – in spite of what George Lopez thinks! Kendra didn’t say the part about George Lopez though, I did.
