kendra wilkinson baskett remembers mary oconnor

The passing of Hugh Hefner's longtime secretary, Mary O'Connor, has left the Playboy family devastated.

One Playmate who was particularly close to her was Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett, who continues to grieve her death.

Kendra wrote on her website:

"I’m devastated to hear about the passing of Mary O’Connor. Some of you probably recognize her as Hef’s secretary from "The Girls Next Door." But Mary was a lot more than that to those who knew her. Mary worked at the Playboy Mansion for more than 40 years and was like the mansion mom.

She was almost like a therapist because we could talk to her about anything. When I lived at the mansion I was very close with her. Over the years, she helped me through a lot and was always there for me. She was a shoulder to cry on when I needed it and always there to give me advice when I was going through a tough time.

I have so many great memories of Mary. She always invited me to her home for Monday night card games with her and her girlfriends but I would end up watching football with her husband Captain Bob instead. Mary also brought me along to her favorite getaway place, Branson, Missouri, which I will never forget. I felt so special that she invited me to her getaway with her and it was so nice to see where she went away to.

One of my favorite memories of her that I'll never forget is when she showed up at my bridal shower wearing a shower cap, while all of my friends were in risqué outfits. She also held my baby shower for Lil' Hank which is something I will always be thankful for.

She was a wonderful person and I wouldn't be the person I am without her. "

She sounds like she was SUCH a special woman.

Mary may be gone, but she obviously will never be forgotten.

    Like Kendra has EVER acknowledged the "HELP"; she's too busy staring at her ass in the mirrors all over the Playboy Mansion…

    "She always invited me to her home for Monday night card games with her and her girlfriends but I would end up watching football with her husband Captain Bob instead"

    That WHORE always needed attention from some man…disrespecting the invite to play cards…

    Sounds like Hefner hired a shrink to help all the mangled girls who wanted to take their clothes off for strangers.

    @ Nashville's Tease's # 1 Bullshitter: So you can confirm that Kendra DID NOT have a relationship or care for the Secretary? You can qualify to tell us all the truth with those comments? You are such a hater, you are the biggest hater on this site. Why you hate life? Ive been to Nashville before, its a beautiful area and tons to do there, you should be loving life! If you need someone to talk to about your anger/hate of life- let me know… I can maybe give you some free therapy sessions :)
