"They were going to have this big reconciliation and that's part of why Patti agreed to do it," the source says. "If Patti knew that Kendra was going to go off, she would have never done it."

But for Kendra, the uproar "was not a surprise," according to the source. "Kendra knew" it was coming. Kendra even took advantage of the allegations that her husband had an affair with a transsexual, as Radar reported, featuring the fall-out on the show.

Indeed, Kendra has made her living from reality TV ever since her debut on The Girls Next Door in 2005.

"As soon as they talk about canceling the show, something happens like a car accident or having a baby," the source says. "Kendra’s very good at grasping things that are going to continue the show."
