Kendra wilkinson quits

Kendra Wilkinson called it quits Tuesday night after she refused to get into the pool on ABC’s celebrity diving show Splash.

The reality star and former Playboy playmate dropped the bomb on her fellow celebrity divers and judges when she announced she was leaving the competition, explaining her fear of heights was the reason.

“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,” she told the live TV audience.

Wilkinson later took to Twitter where she thanked her fans for supporting her.

“Thank u to all those who supported me last night. Means a lot you stuck by my side. Today’s a new day and I’m still proud. #Shutuphaters,” she wrote.

Among the celebrities that remain on Splash include comic Louie Anderson and all-star Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
