"Splash" marks the first time 10 celebrities will train and compete in regulation platform and springboard diving at dizzying heights in front of a weekly poolside audience.
Unfortunately, I posted it [on Twitter] myself for a few minutes because I thought it was funny. I was getting so many emails and messages and tweets. If that pool could talk, what would it have to say about the "Baywatch" bunch? It was endurance testing for deep-sea diving where we'd go out on a barge and be thrown into the water.[Related: Miss Alabama Katherine Webb Predicts 'Splash' Winner] Did you ever beat the Hoff? Having a baby that late in my life when my hormones were already off course threw everything off.
Everybody wanted to know, and I wanted to share with people: Yeah I'm cool, here's the damage. And at some point in that half-hour they grabbed it. You know, that's why I signed on to do the show in the first place. Well, it would tell you who was strong and who was weak. (Laughs) I'm not sure Haselhoff had to take the test. Once I met a doctor who got my hormone levels back to normal, then the exercise and diet started paying off. It's so frickin' true, and a lot of doctors don't know how to read your levels.
I'm not blaming the person that took the picture, because they took it on my phone. I had to email it out for medical reasons and keep sharing it, and somehow somewhere it got leaked and whatever. Did you have a moment after the back flop where you wanted to give up and not get back up on the diving board? I think he always had a double on hand if he didn't feel like doing it. I started working with a diet program, which you'll hear about soon enough. Women are told it's calorie intake versus calorie burn, and that's such bulls---. They don't do it right.[Related: Beauty Nicole Eggert Embraces Her Curves on 'What Not to Wear']I knew there was something wrong with me. I just knew it and I kept meeting with doctors and doctors, and I finally found one who got it.
She's strong -- she got back on the "Splash" diving board despite an injury.
And she is strongly opinionated about her hot male co-stars -- including former real-life flame, Scott Baio of "Charles in Charge."[Related: Check Out TV's #Hot Scotts]Don't worry. If you don't want to do it or you don't think you're capable of doing it, I highly suggest you don't do it.
She says he's a good ex, not the psycho kind you see in Lifetime movies. If you're into that kind of thing, for sure, why not?But first about that "Splash" injury…Is a back flop as painful as it sounds? To me it's amazing; you're being trained by the best of the best.[Related: Will 'Splash' Injuries & China Death Force ABC To Evaluate Diving Show Dangers?It was way more painful than it looks but not as crazy as everybody makes it sound. When people finally see it happen, I'm sure it won't look that bad. ]Is it true that the "Splash" pool is where you practiced for "Baywatch"?But if you understand the degree of how high I was, you have more comprehension of the damage I did. My legs just weren't as strong as they could have been. This is the same pool where we did a lot of training for "Baywatch." I used to be shot up on that 10 meter spot.And then there's the whole thing of -- it could have been so much worse. When you hit the water going that fast, from that high up, it makes the rest of the body flop. I've broken my back before and this time there was a lot of swelling, but I felt like I could hold myself upright and I was fine. I saw a doctor, and then a couple days later I saw another doctor. What do you say to the people who want the show canceled because of the injuries? They would shoot the close-up of me on the 10 meter, and then they would shoot the close-up of me coming out of the water, and then some amazing diver would do all the in-between tricks.It wasn't like I was going full steam and landed flat on my back. I just wanted to keep making sure that everything was intact, in the skeletal way. It took a couple of visits between the swelling and the bruising to see what was going on.[Related: Louie Anderson Keeps Head High After 'Splash' Elimination]Who took the photos of your bruised back that's online? I've been asked over and over again if this show is too dangerous for people. So, for me, it was a little bit full circle that I came back, and of course the same pool where I have to do this is where I got off easy. We used to have to dive down and pick up these bags of rocks to see who could get to the bottom and who could pick up the rocks and see who could bring them back up to the surface.
