Nicole Eggert Hospitalized After Botched High Dive
Sometimes reality TV is all fun and games, like when rich housewives get together and squawk at each other. But other times, it seems as though we're veering dangerously close to Roman gladiator territory. Such is the case with ABC's "Splash," which features celebrities trying to execute high dives usually reserved for high school athletes and Olympians. The most recent casualty of the show is Nicole Eggert ("Baywatch," "Charles in Charge"). According to People, the 41-year-old actress was trying to do a dive that consisted of a series of flips, and she hit the water back first.
EMTs rushed to the scene and pulled her out of the water, and she was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
TMZ reports that she had no broken bones, but that doctors were monitoring her for internal injuries, including damage to the kidneys.
It's not clear whether Eggert will go back to the show, but she's not the first one to get hurt. Chuy Bravo broke a heel, Rory Bushfield ruptured an eardrum, and Katherine Webb left due to unspecified injuries.
