KENDRA Wilkinson is "embarrassed" she worked as a stripper and experimented with drugs.

The former Playboy Playmate, who worked as a stripper when she was found by Hugh Hefner and asked to be one of his girlfriends, admits she is ashamed about her past, but still maintains she was a "very good person" despite her mistakes.

Speaking on the Today show on on Tuesday, she said: "I kind of lost myself for a little bit. I wasn't a druggie stripper. I was a very good person doing it. But I was kind of still embarrassed about it.

"I always knew that it was wrong. But the drugs and everything, that's what found me and accepted me."

The 25-year-old beauty, pictured, who has a six-month-old son with her NFL sportsman husband Hank Baskett, eventually realised the drug-taking wasn't for her and gave up.

She explained: "It took a while. A good couple of weeks to think about, 'OK, the time is coming. I don't know when yet. But this isn't me'."

Now those days are behind her, Wilkinson is thrilled with how well she has settled into life as a mother.

Meanwhile, Kelsey Grammer and his estranged wife had been "discussing" separating for a while.

The Frasier actor admits he and his spouse of 13 years Camille Donatacci - who filed for divorce from him earlier this week - enjoyed many "wonderful" years together.

He wrote: "Camille and I had been discussing the possibility of a separation for some time before all this happened. She finally decided she should file.

"I respect her for this decision. I mean her no harm. Let me say that Camille and I shared many wonderful things throughout our years together; there were just a few things that we couldn't work out."

The 55-year-old actor also denies reports he didn't telephone their children - Mason Olivia, eight, and Jude Gordan, five - on Father's Day last month.

He wrote in his official blog: "The truth is that I did call my kids that evening. Frankly, I was surprised that they did not call me in the morning but I was thousands of miles away and working that day, so I didn't give it a second thought.

"I love my kids and I miss them terribly. I had spoken to Mason and her brother Jude every day before; perhaps it was foolish of me to expect a call on Father's Day."

Grammer also admits his failed marriage hasn't put him off women for life, and he expects to get back on the dating scene in the near future. - Bang
