Why Kendra Won't Be Posing for 'Playboy'

After having a baby, the reality star says she finally feels sexy again -- but she changed her mind about baring her body

Kendra Baskett won't be stripping down for the pages of Playboy anytime soon -- but it's not because she isn't proud of her post-baby body.

The reality star had initially considered taking it all off for the magazine for the fifth time, and she even had a photographer take some test shots -- all without telling her hubby. But she had some explaining to do when Hank Baskett got home one day and found the reality star posing in some skimpy duds.

"He didn't yell at me," Kendra told E! News. "He wasn't mad at me for doing that photo shoot. He actually sat down with me and he went over the reasons of doing it. And you know, my reasons weren't right. I wanted to do Playboy for the wrong reasons. The wrong reasons are to prove people wrong, not to prove it to myself but to people and to put my middle finger up to everybody and be like, 'I'm going to do Playboy!' But that wasn't the right reason, you know?"

Kendra says she really is happy with what she's got, but doesn't feel the need to plaster herself on the pages of the magazine to prove it.

"I feel sexy again," she says. "No joke, every person I have run across is  like 'Oh, my god! You look so skinny!' I'm like, 'Oh, my god, really?' Like that's crazy! I haven't even had a chance to work out!"

The former Girl Next Door and mom of Hank Jr., wasn't even shy about showing off her C-section scar for the photographer. "I was like, 'C-section scar, bitches!' You know, I don't care," she said. "I can make fun of myself. I don't really care. At the end of the day I'm not some supermodel. I'm me. I'm Kendra, you know? I'm not trying to be someone I'm not."

Do you think of Kendra should pose for Playboy again? Chime in below!
