My latest Playboy cover is not a recent shoot: Kendra Wilkinson

New York: Kendra Wilkinson shocked and confused fans by featuring on the cover of Playboy`s December issue after announcing she wouldn`t pose for the men`s magazine again, but insisted the photo was from an old shoot.

"I AM on the December cover of Playboy but it wasn`t from a recent shoot. The photos are from a shoot I did 2 years ago when I was still living in the mansion," the New York Daily quoted the reality star as writing on her blog.

"I`m flattered to be on the cover again and as you all know Playboy has a very special place in my heart! I just wanted you guys to know I didn`t recently pose," she said.

On the season premiere of her E! reality show "Kendra," the 25-year-old was shown posing for a racy test shoot while wearing a green bra, black panties and black thigh-high boots.

In the episode, Wilkinson struggles with the decision of whether to pose for the magazine, run by ex-boyfriend and media mogul Hugh Hefner, again.

"I can still be sexy and have fun and be a sexy mom and not pose nude," she said to husband NFL athlete Hank Baskett, with whom she has an 11-month-old son.

"Maybe Playboy is the answer. I need to get back to being me again. The real Kendra, the crazy, free spirit," she said.
