It looks like Hank Baskett is still in the dog house! Kendra Wilkinson chose her estranged father, Eric, to fly to Australia to support her while filming I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here over her husband.

Star can reveal that Eric touched down in Oz to be there for her, just a few months after their summer reunion. “She could have chosen Hank to be there for her when she gets out, but she’s surprised everyone by calling on her father,” a source spills. “This says a lot about the state of their marriage. Most people pick their partner to come, and Kendra made this choice before she even went into the jungle.”

The Kendra on Top star had no relationship with her father after, her mom, Patti, alleges, he walked out on their family in 1994. However, she decided to reunite with Eric over the summer and visited him in Costa Rica, a meeting which was shown on the Nov. 7 episode of Kendra on Top.

While Kendra’s choice to not invite Hank to Australia is telling, she’s also been making a statement by flirting with the newest addition to the jungle, Jake Quickenden, of Britain’s The X-Factor. This behavior comes after months of working to forgive Hank, who made headlines for his affair with a transsexual model earlier this year.

Unless the 28-year-old leaves early or is voted out, she’ll be in the jungle until Dec. 7, where her dad — not Hank — will be waiting for her.
