During their marriage, Wilkinson and Baskett welcomed son Hank IV, 13, and daughter Aaliyah, nine.
The Girls Next Door alum said despite their split that the former couple still has a great co-parenting relationship.
“He’s the best dad to my kids, and that’s all I’m really asking for,” she continued. “That’s so delicious in itself.”
“It’s good enough, and when things happen later, they happen,” she said of their future.
“I will always love him and I loved him once,” the SoCal resident added. “Love doesn’t just go away.”
“We only have a short time on earth, and once you love someone, I’ll always love them, you know? And my kids are just so happy and they’re being looked after so well.”
As for her post-divorce dating life, she revealed that she has no desire to start another relationship just yet.
“Dating is still very non-existent,” she said. “It’s really (not in) my head right now because I’m really so in love with building my new career in business and focused on my two kids.”

The author of Sliding Into Home also added that she doesn’t have time to date because she prioritizes her kids in her schedule and prefers to be as hands-on as possible.
“I don’t have a babysitter or a housekeeper, so I don’t really have a lot of time to spend with some guy,” Wilkinson explained.
“You know, it’s just not really exciting for me to think like that,” she continued. “It’s more exciting to sell houses and feel that good feeling.”
She added, “I love what I do and if I love what I do I don’t see the point in changing that and spending my time on someone else hoping it works.”
She also talked about her docuseries in which she has started selling exclusive properties in California.
“It just makes me feel good about myself when I close deals,” she said. “And my kids are proud of me when I do.”
Wilkinson continued, “They won’t be proud of me if I bring in a strange fellow. It’s just like they’re proud of me for making deals, and that’s what I want to continue.”
On the subject of Kendra Sells Hollywood, who debuted in 2021, she said, “I’m really thankful for this opportunity I’m getting in my life so I don’t really know if I’m dating anyone… it’s like I could have this amazing don’t want to take away experience for, you know, a date or something.’
