TheDailyBeast.com: Failed Celebrity Endorsements

Kendra Wilkinson and Olive Garden

Playmate Kendra Wilkinson expressed her love affair with Olive Garden, an Italian restaurant chain famous for its tagline, “When you’re here, you’re family.” In 2008, Wilkinson said Olive Garden was better than any restaurant in Italy, but her free publicity was not exactly welcomed. A former Playboy cover model, Wilkinson starred in the reality show "The Girls Next Door" as one of Hugh Hefner’s three live-in girlfriends, making her the antithesis of traditional “family values.” Executives at Olive Garden were uneasy about discussing the matter, calling it a “complicated issue for the brand.” Nevertheless, Wilkinson stayed true to form when she instigated a contest for the hottest waitresses of Olive Garden, awarding a nude Playboy spread to the winner.
