Even celebrities are feeling the pinch of the shrinking economy. Former Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson has given her longtime assistant the boot and replaced him with free labor — her husband, Hank Baskett!
"Kendra fired her assistant Eddie Bochniak about three weeks ago," a source confirms. The staffing switch-up is helping the famous family save cash, since the Minnesota Vikings didn't offer NFL pro Hank a contract to come back this year.
"It was a sad goodbye because Kendra and Eddie are close friends, but it didn't make sense for them to have that expense anymore," the source explains. "Hank doesn't have a job, so they're cutting back. And Kendra thought, why not use him to help with her career?"
