Hmm, maybe Kendra Wilkinson wasn’t as angry as we thought last week when Carrie Ann Inaba said she was afraid of being “elegant.” The former co-star of The Girls Next Door told reporters Monday that playing the good girl doesn’t always make for good TV on Dancing with the Stars — which is why she appeared to be rather peeved after Inaba’s comments from the previous week.

“It’s a family show for ABC. But at the end of that day it’s entertaining,” Wilkinson admitted. “If were a viewer I’d want to see a teeny bit of drama. Not a lot — just enough drama. It gives it balance. That’s what I want to see so that’s what I’m giving them.”

A reality show that is not real? Perish the thought! But Wilkinson said she did demonstrate to Inaba that there were no hard feelings. “I never said I didn’t like Carrie Ann. I think she’s one of the best people ever,” Wilkinson said. “I didn’t apologize, but I made sure she knew that I appreciate her and what she means through her messages. That 8 from her [during Monday’s show] was a way of making up on the dance floor between each other. That showed me that she does have confidence in me.” — With reporting from Carrie Borzillo
