Sitting down with Ryan Seacrest to discuss about her sex tape "Kendra Exposed" scandal, Kendra Wilkinson revealed that she is able to see the good side in the fallout. During the interview for E! News, the mother of one said, "Now that this happened, it hurts, but I know it's going to make me and Hank better parents."

"It's really going to make us teach our child what's right and wrong in this world, what's good and evil," Kendra explained on how the scandal will make her a better parent. "We're going to make sure our son is raised with a good head on his shoulders, a person that has morals, that treats women with respect."

Kendra also revealed that she has warned her Philadelphia Eagles footballer husband Hank Baskett that the tape, featuring her when she was 18 years old having an intimate moment with ex-high school lover Justin Frye, existed. She did that because she "didn't want it to just come out and smack us in the face."

Kendra further opened up about her ex-lover and co-star in the explicit video, stating "I made love to my boyfriend at the time, we just happened to videotape it. It wasn't for anybody else's eyes to see but ours. I was going to marry him, we were going to be together forever."

"And I didn't know I was going to be famous - It was something that we did, and it was for our eyes only," Kendra continued. "I didn't do it out of fame, I didn't do it for money, I did it because I was in love with him. It just sucks. It's really embarrassing."

Kendra moreover said that being a wife and a mother has become something she always dreamed of, despite her life as a "crazy party girl throughout those Playboy Mansion years." She said, "That was my dream, it's always been my dream - and I'm here now. I'm here where I want to be, the happiest person I've ever been, and it just so happens my past has to haunt me now."

Although Kendra admitted that telling Hank's families about the brewing scandal was difficult, she shared, "Hank and I and our families know the truth [about the story behind the tape] and that's why they're supporting us, that's why they're behind us, and that's why they're going to fight till death with us!"

We all make mistakes especially when we are young because we always get caught in the moment. But now that you are both adults and know what is wrong and right, what's important now is for you to be the best parents for your son. :)

We all do things when we are younger that end up haunting us later its how we deal with it that matters. Kendra & Hank are dealing with it the way they should be speaking out and staying strong. It will blow over and we all got your back Kendra!
