Kendra Wilkinson Quits 'Splash' & Gets Reamed for It (VIDEO)

LemdrLast night on the reality show Splash, Kendra Wilkinson quit dramatically, right in the middle of the competition. She climbed the ladder, stood atop the 23-foot-high diving board, then panicked. Tears filled her eyes, and she said, "I can't do it." Then she walked back down off the platform.

She was clearly shaken and disappointed in herself. Sitting down afterward she 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."

Personally, I felt sorry for her, but also kind of proud of her that she didn't do something that clearly terrified her just because cameras were rolling. Not everyone felt that way -- in fact, some were flat out furious, while others said she did it just for attention.

After the show she tweeted: "Damn I got a lot of hate tonight but ill take it. Big mistake signing up for the show. Sorry I let you all down."

Some felt she shouldn't have gone on the show if she was afraid of heights. But I say good for her for facing her fear. And she did jump last week. She tweeted that "felt amazing and it was huge accomplishment to me and my family." She likely had every intention of doing it, but sometimes you just can't. At least she tried.

It's not like diving off that board was going to cure cancer, or actually do anything positive for mankind. So while facing her fear would have been great, her quitting really doesn't matter a whole hell of a lot in the scheme of things -- ratings aside, of course.

Do you think people have a right to be mad that Kendra Wilkinson quit Splash?

Yeah, that's like, so weird - I'm terrified of heights, but I had no idea that in DIVING you have to like, climb up HIGH and JUMP.  Man, that's messed up.  Wish someone had told me before I signed up for this show!

Why is this even an actual show? Love Kendra but this show is ridiculous.

How did she "get reamed"? I'm not seeing any evidence that happened.

In her Tweet she says she "got a lot of hate" but you haven't provided any of that either.

I'm not commenting to 'hate on you', but if you're going to go through the effort of posting an article, may as well go all the way and make it complete - otherwise you're teaching people it's not worth coming to the site (because of unfulfilled headlines - it's just a tease for clicks).

Best wishes...

The "right" to be mad? I guess people are entitled to their feelings, but hello #FirstWorldProblems - save your anger for oh, I d'know, injustice? Children who have no food? Whatevez, she tried, she couldn't, the end. Move on, angry Internet people.

Kendra shouldn't do anything that she's afraid of. She doesn't use her brain often but at least she used it then. She is rich and doesn't need to really work so no big deal.
