Kendra Wilkinson has had a ''strained'' relationship with her family for several years.

The former 'Girls Next Door' star reportedly lashed out at her mother Patti recently, telling her to ''go die'', when her mum called to inquire about speculation she is pregnant with her second child.

According to sources close to the family, the 28-year-old reality TV star has isolated herself from her mother and brother Colin over the years and they fear Hollywood has got to her head.

A source told ''Kendra is not the family girl that she portrays on her show. If a family situation will help her with ratings, she's for it. And if not, her family consists of her very close friends.

''She takes advantage of her family and the relationship for several years has been strained and it's no fault of the family. It's all Kendra's doing.''

Kendra has a three-year-old son, Hank Jr., with basketball pro husband Hank Bassett, and while Patti is a doting grandmother, it's reported she doesn't often get to spend time with the tot.

The insider added: ''They have a nanny that's hired and there's a grandmother that would be more than willing to watch the child.

''She's heartbroken. Patti has two children and one daughter is not that far away from her, but yet it's like she lives across the world.''
