Reality TV matchmaking has reached a whole new level. Denise Richards has pitched her widowed dad Irv as a potential date for Kendra Wilkinson’s divorced mom, Patti, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The idea came about when Denise learned that Wilkinson’s hugely popular E! show, simply titled Kendra, is planning a future episode where the former Girl Next Door tries to find a man for mom Patti Wilkinson.
“As soon as she heard about it, Denise called Kendra’s people and suggested they have Patti date Irv,” a show insider tells RadarOnline.com. “She thought it would be great TV but Denise is also really serious about finding someone for her dad.”
Patti and Kendra’s dad Eric divorced in 1994. Patti has been seen on Kendra several times helping her daughter juggle her new life as a mom and wife of football star Hank Baskett.
Denise’s mom Joni died from cancer in 2007, and dad Irv later moved in with his daughter and her two daughters from her marriage to Charlie Sheen. “Denise is really serious about playing matchmaker for her father,” the insider says.
