(Newser) – Kendra Wilkinson may be among the most famous Playboy Playmates—not to mention married to a football star—but her younger years weren’t so bright. Previews for her upcoming E! True Hollywood Story show Wilkinson talking about using cocaine at 13 and cutting herself by 15, the New York Daily News reports. “I had so much pain that I just wanted to die,” she says, adding that she checked into a psychiatric facility for two weeks after swallowing a "half-dozen or so medications."

Wilkinson found herself in the news for another reason yesterday after she apparently slammed fellow celebrity mom Kate Gosselin for appearing on Dancing With the Stars. “If I were asked to go on, I don't think I'd do it,” she said on Today. “I would definitely say no to it, because I am that mom that wants to be there every step. I don't want to spend three months away from my baby. I just couldn't do that.” She later tweeted she “didn’t mean to bash Kate.”
