Is Splash Too Dangerous? The Experts Dive In

Originally posted 04/30/2013 04:50PM

It's one thing when a celebrity gets hurt training for the ballroom on Dancing with the Stars. But as fans of this spring's TV diving competition Splash have learned, when you put a star up on a springboard or platform, the danger level soars.

Or does it?

PEOPLE.com readers have expressed concern that the ABC reality competition poses a real threat to its participants – that the show may simply be too dangerous.

After all, Rory Bushfield ruptured an eardrum in a botched entry, Katherine Webb could no longer compete after an injury and Nicole Eggert was left bruised and swollen from a dive.

And when Kendra Wilkinson stepped down from the competition, she spoke up about her perception of the perils of the sport. "Every morning I would wake up and be shaking," she told PEOPLE earlier this month. "It's a really risky show. I related jumping off the high board into the water to jumping to my death. That's how big of a deal it was. To me, it really meant risking my life."

So we decided to do some investigating.

The reality star, 27, who stepped down from ABC's diving competition on Tuesday, tells PEOPLE, "I feel like the world is off my shoulders now. Every morning I would wake up and be shaking. It's a really risky show. I related jumping off the high board into the water to jumping to my death. That's how big of a deal it was. To me, it really meant risking my life."

A teary-eyed Wilkinson climbed down from the 23-foot platform on Tuesday's show, and said, "One thing I don't do is quit. This is the first time in my life I've quit something. This will haunt me for the rest of my life."

Her bathing suit is barely wet and Kendra Wilkinson's relationship with her coach Greg Louganis has already taken a nosedive.

In this video clip from ABC's new show Splash, the reality star plunges into a profanity-laced tirade after Louganis challenges her for refusing to jump from a three-meter board.

"I know Greg is the best diver of all time," Wilkinson, 27, says in a confessional on the competition show, which airs March 19. "Everybody would probably be pissed at me if I talked s–– about him, but guess what? I'm talking s–– about him. I don't like him."

Kendra Wilkinson Takes Kate Gosselin's Parenting Advice After Celebrity Wife Swap

Originally posted 02/26/2013 05:00PM

When it comes to parenting, Kendra Wilkinson considers Kate Gosselin her mentor.

"If there's any person in this world I'm going to take motherly advice from, it's going to be Kate Gosselin," Wilkinson, 27, told PEOPLE on Friday. "She has eight kids and she knows what she's doing with them. When she told me advice, I listened. With most people, I'm just like, 'Whatever ... whatever, I'm not going to listen to you.' But she's the type I would take advice from."

The two moms connected while filming an episode of Celebrity Wife Swap, which airs Tuesday on ABC (8 p.m. ET). While Wilkinson stayed in Gosselin's Pennsylvania home with her eight kids, Gosselin, 37, ventured to L.A. to live with Wilkinson's hubby Hank Baskett and their 3-year-old son, Hank Baskett IV.
