In a sensational revelation, Kendra Wilkinson said that she tried to take her own life as a teenager. The former Playboy Mansion resident also had to be institutionalised for her drug overdose.

The 30-year-old mother of two blamed her mom for all the difficulties in her teenage life. Wilkinson said her mother abused her emotionally and did not love her. "When I was a teenager, I battled some severe depression," Wilkinson told her therapist, Dr. Monica Shahbaznia, in a sneak peek at Friday's episode of “Kendra on Top,” People reported.

"I attempted suicide a couple times. I went to a mental institution...drugs, overdosing, slitting wrists, all that stuff," she said. Her “sadistic” mother, Patti, adandoned her and left her on her own. “All I wanted was for my mom to say, 'I love you, and I'm here for you.' I never got that," she said.

Her difficult times from her teenage years have continued in her present too. The former Playboy model and her husband Hank Baskett are seeing a counselor to save their marriage. The couple was shocked when their counselor told them that they needed a “sex therapist" to make their marriage work. The couple was under impression that they had a wonderful sexual chemistry.

However, her husband pointed out that this is not the real reason why they are seeking advise. "It's about commitment. That's what it's about." In 2014, their marriage was rocked by a cheating scandal but Wilkinson decided to forgive her husband and start her life fresh. The couple tied the knot six years ago and have two children.

“The Girls Next Door” star became famous for being one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends, who stayed in his Playboy mansion with his other girls. Her first reality series, “Kendra,” debuted in June 2009.
