Kendra Wilkinson, of Playboy fame, apparently suffered a minor stroke when she was in that car accident back in April. At the time, reports were that while the accident was bad, Wilkinson wasn’t seriously injured. But now a source is telling E! News something a little different (though they’re saying she’s okay now). Via E Online:
E! News has exclusively learned that the reality star suffered a “minor stroke” during the collision. Doctors made the discovery through CT scans just days after the terrifying ordeal.
But according to those close to the outspoken blonde, she has since recovered and is well.
“They told her to take it easy and chill out for a couple of weeks, but she is fine,” a source says. “There is nothing to worry about.”
That still sounds terrifying. She’s only 28. I didn’t know that anyone could have a stroke so young without an underlying condition.
The accident happened on the 101 freeway and was a head-on collision. She’s lucky it wasn’t worse.
“People are afraid to merge on the freeways in Los Angeles.” — Bret Easton Ellis, Less Than Zero.

Kim Kardashian is always tweeting about something inane. Sometimes she’ll try to tweet about a product without it being incredibly obvious that they’re asking her to. But it’s always obvious. Lohan has been doing her own product endorsement, although the company claims they are not paying her.
And yes, apparently some celebs get paid to tweet about companies and products — even the D-list celebs. The more followers/famous the celeb, the more money they can command per tweet. For example, Kim Kardashian can get (allegedly) around $20,000 per tweet. Frankie Muniz can only get $252. (Nelson Muntz laugh here.)

Kendra Wilkinson is pretty inoffensive as far as celebrities go, and I’ve always had a bit of a “meh” spot for her (that’s one step above soft spot), so I got a little worried for a hot minute when I read that she’d been rushed to the hospital after a car accident on Sunday. Don’t worry – she’s okay!
From US Weekly:
Kendra Wilkinson was taken to the hospital following a bad car accident in LA’s Tarzana neighborhood, Us Weekly can confirm. The Girls Next Door alum, 27, was spotted going into Providence Tarzana Medical Center early in the day on April 21.
A source tells Us that Wilkinson — wife of former NFL wide receiver Hank Baskett III and mom to son Hank Baskett IV, 3 — was “in shock” and “really sore” after the accident. Doctors examined her to determine what the damage was to her body and whether she had broken any bones, but it appears her injuries were not serious.
“She was taken in earlier,” a second source tells Us of the former Playboy model. “She was discharged already.”
A rep for the star did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
I’m glad Kendra’s okay, but this just furthers my argument that cars are dangerous killing machines that I may never learn how to drive (kidding – it’s my goal for 2013!).
