Dancing With The Stars – Kendra Wilkinson On Being a Sex Icon & Why She Spent The Day In Bed Yesterday

Marc Malkin of E Online interviewed Kendra yesterday. She tells him that she’s really a “tomboy” versus the sex icon she gets portrayed by the media. She also discussed why she spent a large part of the day in bed yesterday since she felt sick. Read why below.

“They’re kind of playing me as a sex icon, kind of the sexy one that’s the booty shaker,” Kendra told me this afternoon in what we hope will be the first of many exclusively weekly chats we’ll be having with the E! reality star. “It’s funny and everything, but my true fans and my people know that I’m a real tomboy. I don’t wear makeup and I don’t wear heels and all that stuff.”

Kendra is taking DWTS so seriously that she actually felt sick this morning after making her dancing debut on last night’s season premiere. She spent a large chunk of today in bed.

“I didn’t even drink last night, but I feel hungover,” Kendra said. “For anyone who is a real competitor, you wake up the next morning and you’re either mourning or you’re celebrating. Right now, I’m in between those.”

Is she hurting? Sorta. “My brain is in pain,” Kendra laughed. “I’m really really wanting to do this. I’m really in this to win it. People looked at me and thought I was going to do better. I did the best I can.”
