I've been sucked into the ABC show Splash because of my kids...they love it. Since I'm already watching with them, I decided early on to find something about it to like...and that ended up being Nicole Eggert. Her story is pretty cool and I've been rooting for her ever since. Well, TMZ.com reports that she was hospitalized last Thursday after a high dive went wrong. :/
Sources tell TMZ the former Baywatch star was attempting a dive that included multiple back flips, but something went wrong and she landed in the water back first. The sources said the impact looked so painful, on-site EMTs rushed to pull the 41-year-old Eggert out of the pool and transport her to a nearby hospital.
Splash insiders say Eggert didn't break any bones, and was released from the hospital a few hours later, but doctors are keeping an eye on her for any internal injuries and are monitoring her kidneys in particular.
There is a long list of injured contenders... Chuy Bravo, Chelsea Handler’s assistant on her late night E! talk show, withdrew from the competition after fracturing his heel during diving practice and Miss Alabama USA, Katherine Webb, bowed out last week due to a back injury. Extreme skier Rory Bushfield ruptured his eardrum in a dive a few weeks ago, but refused to quit the show.
Nicole had some trouble with a dive early on in the show...check it out below...
Hope she is ok! You can watch Splash Tuesday nights at 7pm CST on ABC.
