July 24 (IBNS) Pregnant reality star Kendra Wilkinson is trying her skills in writing a memoir.

“I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I have a husband I adore, a baby on the way, and now my memoir is going to be published!” she told Simon Spotlight Entertainment, the publisher of her statement.

The book, scheduled to hit stores next summer, will explore Wilkinson’s childhood, her Playboy years (including her time with Hugh Hefner, with whom she split last October), her experience taping The Girls Next Door and Kendra and newlywed life with NFL star Hank Baskett.

The memoir will be a humorous, relatable, fish-out-of-water tale that captures the spirit of one of the most beloved Playboy cover models in history, according to the release.

Adds Jennifer Bergstrom of Simon Spotlight Entertainment: Kendra is so genuine and funny that her memoir is sure to be unique, refreshing, and a reflection of the woman so many people have fallen in love with.
