Q: The new season of Kendra begins March 14, and you recently moved in to a new house. Are you excited to show it off?
A: Yeah, it's so fricking amazing. It's in Tarzana, L.A. I'd never heard of it before, but it's almost better than Hollywood. I can't wait to show the house off on TV. Five bedrooms, like, seven bathrooms, a pool, a grotto-type thing.
Q: Sounds a little like the Playboy Mansion.
A: Yeah, now we have our own mansion.
Q: You're also a part-time resident of Indiana because your husband, Hank Baskett, plays for the Colts. Some people are calling for you to run for Evan Bayh's Senate seat—when you're old enough. Interested?
A: Yeah, I don't even know what the Senate does. I'll run for it, but I don't really know what it means. I would definitely campaign for better education in schools and donate more money to inner-city schools and stuff like that. I would definitely love to see kids have more focus in life with sports and stuff, and I know that, like, Mr. Schwarzenegger wants to take away our sports and our art. I'm totally 100 percent against that. Our kids need focus, especially these days when there are drugs all over the place. And the Internet is something that I definitely want to take away from the focus of kids.
Q: Really? Why the Internet?
A: Because the Internet has gotten way out of control. Let me tell you that right now. [Laughs] It's crazy!
Q: I guess you could say the same thing about reality television. What do you do when you want them to turn off the cameras?
A: I ask them politely to respect that we need some time alone. Or I just lift up my shirt. It's too expensive to blur boobs.
Q: I heard you were working on a book.
A: Yeah, yesterday was my last meeting with my ghostwriter. I'm very hands-on. I want it my way or the highway. It's called Sliding Into Home—first base was my childhood, how I grew up, and the second base is my rough years as a teenager, and third base was the Playboy Mansion and the Hugh Hefner days. Sliding into home is me being married with our baby and being home.
Q: How often do you use your Kendra Sport Pole when you're at home?
A: I haven't really gotten back on it since the pregnancy. But I definitely will.
