Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett Had a Stroke? And She's Using the Scary News to Promote Her Show?

The reality star is opening up about her health scare, but we won't know all of the details until the season premiere of her series

Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett's car accident earlier this year was apparently more serious than the reality star originally let on. A new promo for her WEtv series, Kendra On Top, reveals that the former Playmate may have suffered a minor stroke during the incident:

Sources tell E! News that Kendra did, in fact, suffer a stroke. Doctors performed a number of tests following the head-on collision, which totaled her Audi sedan, to confirm their suspicions. Kendra was originally taken to Providence Tarzana Medical Center outside of Los Angeles, where she was treated for minor injuries.

Despite the scary news, those close to Kendra are insisting that there is no need to worry about the star. "They told her to take it easy and chill out for a couple of weeks, but she is fine," a source told E!.  "There is nothing to worry about."

Kendra tweeted about the ordeal yesterday:


We're glad Kendra is recovering from such a terrible incident. And maybe others who have been in similar tramatic experiences will benefit from watching the star bounce back. But it still seems a little odd to use a car accident and health scare to promote the new season of your show, no?
