From All in the Family came Maude, from Happy Days came Laverne & Shirley, and this fall on E!, from Girls Next Door will come what for now is being called Kendra, the network has announced.

Eight episodes of the new reality show will chronicle "the antics of fan-favorite Kendra Wilkinson [as] the blond bombshell finds herself at a crossroads in her life as she leaves behind the luxuries and amenities of the legendary Playboy Mansion and ventures out to live on her own for the very first time," said a statement from E! executive vice-president, original programming and series development, Lisa Berger.

Wilkinson's wedding plans – she's engaged to marry Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett in June – will also play a large part in the new show's storyline, as will how Kendra, 23, copes with such everyday tasks as laundry, cooking and grocery shopping after being deprived of the staff employed by Playboy founder and her former boyfriend, Hugh Hefner.

"With her outrageous personality and trademark laugh," said Berger, "she's faced with the reality of making it outside the gates of the Mansion … We are thrilled to be going into these uncharted waters with her."
