It hasn't been an easy year for Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett. After a very public cheating scandal rocked their five-year marriage, the reconciled duo has opened up to Us Weekly about their woes and their decision to stay together in a joint interview in the Dec. 1 issue of the magazine.

"It's going to take a lifetime to trust him again," the 29-year-old Playmate said. Her husband replied, "I will spend my life trying to get Kendra to trust me again."

In June, Hank was caught in an alleged affair with a transgender model. Subsequently, their struggle played out in front of millions on her reality show, "Kendra On Top." While much of the details of the encounter remain unknown, Kendra has taken Hank at his word.

"All I can say is I believe Hank. I love Hank. And he's proven to me that he's worth forgiving and fighting for," the mother of two said. "He was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and unfortunate things took place. He's very gullible and naive.

The blonde also spoke of her heartbreak and rage following the sex scandal. "I would cry myself to sleep every night, not knowing what happened," she said. "I was trying to get what I could out of Hank, but I couldn't control my rage. It became very volatile between us."

Despite the trying times, the parents say they plan to remain together and are trying to fix what has been broken. Hank confessed, "Our relationship is still day-to-day. I'm still working on regaining Kendra's trust."

But it appears as though, things are progressing in the bedroom. When asked if the two had been intimate since the cheating in June, the former "Girls Next Door" star told the publication, "Yes. I don't want to say more, but... Yes.'"

Kendra and Hank are focusing on family life and their sons, Hank IV, 4, and Alijah, 6 months.
