Kendra defends 'DWTS' behavior: I'm a positive person

Kendra Wilkinson is very aware that she’s been getting a bad rap for being shown complaining on “Dancing with the Stars,” but she said that’s not really who she is.

“You only get so much time on TV and that’s all that people see of you,” Wilkinson told Access Hollywood following Tuesday’s show.

“Last week, I was in a bad mood more than a good mood so that is what all that people know of me is that week, you know, that’s who I am in that week. But I’m not that person,” Wilkinson added. “I’m a very happy person, so I just want to make sure that people know that that negative side only comes once a month.”

Wilkinson, in fact, blamed her time of the month for sassing back when judge Carrie Ann Inaba suggested she was afraid of elegance after her dance on last week’s show. She also had a couple of rough rehearsals with pro partner Louis van Amstel shown in rehearsal footage on the program, and another time she blamed a smoke machine for hindering her dance.

The former “Girl Next Door,” however, said she isn’t a negative force.

“I’m always a positive person, I’m always laughing, I’m always making fun of everything, you know,” she said. “I’m a happy person, so last week was just a little bit off for me. I was a little dizzy, I was a little sick. Now, this week, I feel like myself again so I’m ready to get out there and have some fun next week.”
