It’s over. Kendra Wilkinson exclusively confided in Dish Nation that she’s ended her marriage with hubby Hank Baskett and is officially single — and maybe looking for love.

The former Playboy bunny has signed on to do Australia’s reality TV show, I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and during her arrival Down Under on Tuesday — sans her wedding ring — the 29-year-old revealed she hopes to put her marriage problems behind her as she enters the show.

The mother-of-two made headlines when Baskett was allegedly caught cheating with a transsexual model.

“That is what I am trying to escape from. I am going to have some thinking time in the jungle,” Wilkinson said of her husband and their relationship at the Arrivals Hall at Brisbane Airport.

“It’s going to be good to be away from all that… I’m single for the time being.”

However, the ex-girlfriend of Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner is unsure about whether or not she’s ready to love again.

“I don’t know what I’d do if there is a Tarzan in there who wants to sweep me off my feet. I’m quite picky about men. I do like a British accent though,” she smiled.

It’s uncertain whether or not Wilkinson will wear a bikini in the jungle. “I’m still battling the post baby body,” she said. “I don’t want to startle people with my body!

“I’m here to conquer my fears. I’m a wuss. I’m scared of everything.”

Wilkinson admits she’s never seen the famous UK reality show before and is happy for it all to be a surprise.

“I’ve never seen I’m A Celebrity before and I didn’t want to after I signed up for the show. I want to go in blind. I don’t want to freak myself out. And I have no idea who is going in with me. I hope it’s a good group of people,” she told Dish.

“This will be a vacation for me. I’m not a girl into home comforts and luxury. I like getting dirty. This is my type of thing. Rice and beans is fine with me. I’m not a big eater. I’m going from the Atkins diet to the I’m A Celebrity diet.”

But Wilkinson admits she will miss her home life.

“I’m going to miss the kids the most. I feel like I’ve been gone for a year already, but it’s only been one flight,” she dished.

“I’d love to be the jungle queen. I might even catch some jungle fever!”


UPDATE 12:27 P.M. PST — Post publication, Dish Nation has learned the exact transcription is as follows:

Reporter: “Are you saying you want to stay a single woman right now?”
Kendra: “For the time being…the time being here, yes!”

Reporter: “Do you like the British accent?”
Kendra: “Yeah! Sure!”
