If you can't beat them, join them.

That's exactly what former playmate Kendra Wilkinson is apparently planning to do to receive 50 percent of the sales generated by her sex tape released by Vivid Entertainment, RadarOnline, reports.

As previously discussed, new wife and mom Kendra Wilkinson had has publicly protested the upcoming release of the bedroom video. Kendra, along with her legal team, was involved in a battle to stop the release of the sex tape by porn giants Vivid Entertainment.

However Vivid has announced that on June 2, it will release "Kendra Exposed," a hard-core sex video Wilkinson made with an ex-boyfriend Justin Frye, who is a Mixed Martial Arts fighter.

Frye was paid $100,000 by Vivid for the tape, RadarOnline reports.

The former "Girls Next Door" star is said to be set to collect half the profit from the sales and also stands to make millions of dollars from the financial deal.

Frye, 28, and Kendra, 24, started dating when she was still in high school. When she graduated, she moved into the Playboy Mansion and became part of "The Girls Next Door" reality series.

As previously discussed, the former playmate had expressed concerned that the release of the sex tape could destroy her marriage and she was terrified that it would become public. Wilkinson claimed the tape was made only for private use.

At one point her attorney, Yael E. Holtkamp, from the Lavely and Singer firm in Los Angeles, sent a cease and desist letter to Vivid.

During an E! True Hollywood Story that aired in March, Kendra acknowledged that she experimented with drugs and alcohol and had a wild past.

Last June, Kendra Wilkinson got married to NFL football star Hank Baskett and the couple had a baby, Hank IV, in December.
