EXCLUSIVE VIDEO INTERVIEW: Kendra’s Girl Next Door Co-Star Says Long-Distance Romance Will Work

It’s legally recognized as a religion in the U.S. and boasts A-list believers like Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

But another former Scientologist has spoken out against the organization, this time at an event called The Cult In Your Backyard.

Martin Padfield – who was a devotee for 31 years– spoke at the conference on Saturday in East Grinstead, England, the same town as Scientology's UK headquarters.

The 50-year-old says he became a member of the “dangerous, corrupt and sinister cult” at 19 after being introduced to it by a builder working on his parents’ home.

Bridget Marquardt has leapt to the defense of her one-time Playboy housemate Kendra Wilkinson telling RadarOnline.com in an exclusive video interview that just because Kendra and her NFL hubby are now in a long-distance marriage, it doesn’t mean there’s trouble in paradise.

“That all has to come from at home and your level of communication and I think that’s the number one thing,” Bridget told RadarOnline.com.

“It’s so hard being on a reality show and having everything scrutinized — like people are saying, ‘She’s moving back to L.A., oh, they must be fighting,’ but not necessarily.

“It’s probably hard with a baby to keep moving back and forth. Having one stable place is probably better for everyone involved.”

When reports surfaced that Kendra was returning to Los Angeles, California, with 10-month-old son Hank IV- but without her husband Hank Baskett who plays for the Minnesota Vikings- rumors spread that the reality show couple was headed for Splitsville.

Even though Bridget has had concerns of her own filming a new reality show alongside her significant other, she said Kendra never voiced any worries about jumping onto the reality show bandwagon with her own popular self-titled series documenting her life outside the mansion with her new husband and baby.

“Kendra never voiced any concerns about her doing the reality show; it kind of just happened and it happened very quickly,” Bridget said.

“One day she was moving out of the mansion, the next day it was ‘by the way, I have a boyfriend’, the next day it was like ‘by the way, we’re getting married’… within a couple months all those changes happened, so I don’t think she had much time to think about it.”

Kendra, whose show’s third season on E! started Sunday, has already blasted break-up rumors.

“We take advantage of Skype, texting,” the 25-year-old said.

“It’s actually a blessing in disguise,” she added. “We get a chance to know each other all over again and communicate.”

Said Bridget: “I’m sure it’s better for her and all of them to have a stable spot that  she’s comfortable with.

“I couldn’t imagine trying to live in Indianapolis or Philly with a new baby and not knowing anybody or anything around so I’m sure it’s really hard.”

Now that Kendra’s back in Southern California, Bridget said she hasn’t talked to her yet but hopes to reconnect with her one-time co-star – and maybe even babysit!

“She probably doesn’t want me to,” Bridget said laughingly. “Although I think I would be a really good babysitter. I used to babysit a lot growing up so I can do it.”
