BABY BULGE JEALOUSY MADE KENDRA BULIMIC!

KENDRA WILKINSON took extreme measures to get her hot body back after giving birth when she saw how quickly KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN lost her baby bulge!

In her just-published book, “Being Kendra: Cribs, Cock­tails & Getting My Sexy Back,” the 26-year-old former Playboy Playmate reveals she was so desperate she started purging after eating!

She writes that Kourtney “was back to her pre-baby body while I hadn’t lost a pound...I even tried throw­ing up food, but bulimia wasn’t my thing. I gagged myself with my fingers and the food came back up. I was desperate for something, anything to work.”

Meantime, Kourtney, 32, had seemed to shed weight with ease, dropping 45 pounds and show­ing off her 95-pound bikini body in photos.

“I would see pictures of (Kourtney) in the magazines, and her body was already back to normal after a few months,” recalls Kendra, who adds she was feverishly work­ing out twice a day.

“I kept thinking, ‘What is wrong with me? Why can she do it and I can’t?’ ”

A friend of Kendra’stold The ENQUIRER: “She was so upset because they had kids just three days apart.”

Even five months after Kendra gave birth to Hank Baskett IV via C-section, she still weighed 140 and considered hav­ing lipo surgery. But doctors finally discovered the real reason the 5-foot-4 beauty was having so much trouble.

“Kendra’s doctor found an undiag­nosed health issue –low thyroid levels – was stopping her from losing weight,” explained the friend.

“She took a thyroid medication, lost three pounds in two weeks and was on her way!”
