The things you learn reading the celeb rags in the supermarket checkout line: Vikings wide receiver Hank Basket is bunking alone these days, because his Playboy Mansion wife Kendra Wilkinson can't handle Minnesota.
It's quite the sob story from something called Life & Style Weekly. Practically makes you want to reach for the bon bons and flip on Dr. Phil.[jump]
Hank's decision to sign with the Minnesota Vikings September "hurt a lot," the delicate flower says. "When Hank left I felt lonely. He's my everything. Nobody else can really fill that loneliness." She admits there's been a lot of tears throughout this time. "We cry. It's hard, and we aren't ashamed to cry."
Oh my. And it gets sadder. She's going to suck up all her courage and visit the big guy for Turkey Day.
"I'm going to go back to the minus-2-degree weather to spend Thanksgiving, baby Hank's 1st birthday and Christmas in a small one bedroom hotel room with my husband and son. That's all that matters to me."
Good lord woman, check the weather page and get on a plane. The average high in November is 40 degrees; 26 in December. No, it's not as cozy as the sweet life in "The Girls Next Door," but it's not like you're going to die. That comes later when you under dress for the pond hockey championships.
