Kendra Wilkinson's engagement ring secrets



Just because Kendra Wilkinson is moving out of the mansion doesn't mean she won't still be living the Playboy lifestyle. Celebuzz asked the Girls Next Door star for the story behind the engagement ring she got from Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett -- all 2 1/4 carats of it.

"I had nothing to do with it," Kendra said. "I didn't even know he was proposing."

"I had to be sneaky about it because Kendra's a little inspector, always picking up clues," Baskett said, noting he would stop by Bernie Robbins Fine Jewelers every day to monitor the ring's progress. "Kendra would just happen to call me then. Every time. I would be like, I'm getting my computer worked on, I'm at the shoe store. I made something up."

Baskett was more than a little obsessive about the ring, which has 60 diamonds in an 18k white gold setting.

"I'd keep it in my safe. And I'd look at it every day before practice, then I'd clean it," he said. "I'd come home from practice and still clean it. No one else touched it, but I still cleaned it."

We'd do the same thing with anything Kendra was going to be touching. That's right, we went there.
