Does Kendra Wilkinson protest too much?
While fighting the release of a sex tape shot of her and an ex-boyfriend, Wilkinson, 24, reportedly stands to make millions of dollars off the sale of the tape.
The tape's existence was first reported by OK! magazine earlier this month. On Thursday, a source told Radar online that Wilkinson's payday would include half of all sales of the sex tape. Her partner in the tape, ex-high school flame Justin Frye, has already pocketed a reported $100,000 for selling it to porn company Vivid Entertainment.
These days, the star of the E! reality show "Kendra" is seen as the adoring wife of NFL star Hank Baskett and new mom to Hank Jr.
In a display of new-mother piety, Wilkinson even bashed another reality mom, Kate Gosselin, for taking time away from her children to appear on "Dancing With the Stars."
But Wilkinson's past is less than saintly. She reportedly made the tape and several others with Frye, now a martial arts fighter, when she was 18.
"Kendra definitely was not shy about being in these tapes," the source told Radar. There are tapes of Kendra in really compromising positions ... doing a lot of embarrassing things."
Soon after Wilkinson and Frye broke up, she began dating Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner and starred in the E! hit show, "The Girls Next Door."
According to documents obtained by Radar, Wilkinson even tried to sell her old sex tapes in 2008, soon after becoming engaged to Baskett, but was unable to strike a deal.
Vivid recently announced that the tape will be available for sale in early June.
Wilkinson is certainly not the first celebrity to be caught on tape in a sexual situation. Here's a roundup of five others:
Now Lopez is an A-list celebrity and mother of twins, and she has accused Noa, who describes himself as an "immigrant, chef and model," of trying to peddle more than 11 hours of unseen home video footage of "sexual situations" from their honeymoon.
Last November, Lopez slapped Noa with a $10 million breach of contract suit to try to stop him from marketing the footage and using it in a film he was producing called "How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The J Lo and Ojani Noa Story," which Noa described as the story of Lopez's "tumultuous first marriage."
Lopez and Noa were married for less than a year in 1997 and 1998, just as she was breaking out as a star in the biopic "Selena."
According to a copy of the lawsuit obtained by ABCNews.com, the film and recording star is seen "in revealing lack of clothing, and in sexual situations, especially in the hotel room footage from (her and Noa's) honeymoon."
But Claudia Vazquez, another producer of the film, told ABCNews.com that there is "nothing sexual" about the footage. "She's in a bikini, swimming in the pool," she said. "There are some situations in the hotel room where they are talking and playing around, but it's more like romantic."
Another recent tape gaffe was commited by Carrie Prejean, the former Miss California USA who lost her crown for failing to fulfill the duties of her title. She then lost out in a lawsuit against the Miss California USA organization because they got their hands on her sex tape.
