Washington: E! reality starlet Kendra Wilkinson is thrilled to find herself close to ex-boyfriend Hugh Hefner after a long time in Los Angeles.
"I can tell you that Hef is my closest friend," the People Magazine quoted Wilkinson as saying.
"I`m not just saying that. He makes sure he writes to us every chance . . . He``s always thinking about us, and that`s a real friend," she said.
But it doesn`t sound like hubby Hank Baskett has any reason to be concerned.
"I want Hef to see how my life is – it`s just great. I`m just excited to catch up on things," Wilkinson gushed about Baskett and their ten-month-old son.
Wilkinson, who caught up with her long lost pal Thursday, calls Hefner a very thoughtful man.
"Hef always says, `I`m thinking about you`. He asks, `How are you guys doing? Are you doing okay?` " she said.
The former Girls Next Door star makes no mention of her previous Playboy Mansion roommates Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt, emphasizing that Hefner is the one who called with concern when Baskett was cut from the Philadelphia Eagles.
"Hef is so happy to see us. And we`re so excited to see him," she added.
