EAGLES WIDE receiver Hank Baskett has more to worry about than getting in shape for football season. Vivid Entertainment is about to release a video of his wife, Kendra Wilkinson, having sex with an ex-boyfriend.

OK magazine says the tape was shot before 2004, when Wilkinson, of E!'s "Kendra," moved into the Playboy mansion and supposedly dated Hugh Hefner.

Wilkinson's reps tell OK they are trying to block the end-of- May release of the video. A Vivid spokeswoman declined to reveal the length of the video or discuss what exactly it shows. Vivid has released sex videos of Kim Kardashian and singer Ray-J, Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, and Havertown's Jennifer Toof aka Toastee, from VH1's "Flavor of Love," with an unknown man.

Where's Robert?

Screen legend Robert De Niro has managed to keep a low profile while making "The Dark Fields" here. Since Monday he's been shooting on the 34th floor of the Loews Hotel (12th & Market).

While co-star Bradley Cooper's been spotted around town for the past month, De Niro seems to only be seen by workers at City Hall, where the movie's trailers are parked. We're told the star is commuting from his New York home.

In other movie news . . .

Writer/director Christian Jude Grillo is about to wrap "Booley," his first feature film, which has been shooting here for a few weeks. The "comical psychological thriller" features porn starlet Gina Lynn as a high school student and Howard Stern show regulars Richard Christy as a drug dealer and Sal the Stockbroker as a nosy neighbor. The film stars Tom Detrik as Angus Booley, a poor schlub who tries to better himself by following a self-help guru played by local actor Christopher Mann, whose credits include HBO's "The Wire." "Jersey Justice" director John Charles Hunt plays a detective in the film, which Grillo hopes to get into festivals.

* Lehigh Valley native Jenn Gotzon has

been cast as the female lead in "Doonby" opposite "Dukes of Hazzard" star John Schneider. Shooting begins early this month. Gotzon's previous credits include playing Richard Nixon's daughter, Tricia, in "Frost/Nixon."

Out and about

* Actor David Strathairn stopped for a

snack the other day at Jay's Deli (13th & Spruce). The "Good Night and Good Luck" star is in town rehearsing "Leaving," a play by former Czech President Vaclav Havel, that opens May 19 at the Wilma Theater (Broad & Spruce).

* Cole Hamels texted with Roy Halla-

day and played Scrabble on his iPhone while brunching Sunday with wife Heidi and their son, Caleb, at the Iron Hill (3 W. Gay) in West Chester.

Petal power for Laura Bush

Florist Carl Alan says former first

lady Laura Bush loves yellow roses and bluebonnets so he made sure to use plenty of both yesterday while doing the flowers for her afternoon appearance at the Union League. She stopped to freshen up at the Ritz-Carlton after the event, which followed a "Today" appearance with her daughters.

Philly Day seems a success

MTV Jams' Philly Day achieved its objective of becoming the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter Sunday. From 9 a.m. Sunday to 9 a.m. Monday the music channel played only Philly artists such as The Roots, Schoolly D, Tuff Crew, Freeway, Beanie Sigel, and Hall & Oates. The programming was produced by Marc Byers of Rockstar Entertainment. He worked with the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation's African-American tourism arm, Philly 360°Coalition, as the creative ambassador for the coverage. It also featured interviews with local musicians and DJs, plus music videos. MTV wouldn't provide viewership numbers.

B-ballers to Magee event

Sixers President Ed Stefanski, former La Salle University/current St. Joe's Prep basketball coach Speedy Morris and NBA Hall of Fame Sixer Billy Cunningham will attend the Magee Rehabilitation Hospital's Night of Champions Friday at the Sheetmetal Workers Union Hall (1301 S. Columbus). Tickets are on sale at mageerehab.org for the fundraiser for

Magee's wheelchair-sports programs.
