Wilkinson: I was jumping to my death

Kendra Wilkinson

Kendra Wilkinson reveals she felt like she was “risking her life” on US reality diving competition Splash before she stepped down from the programme this week.

The 27-year-old American reality star was a participant on celebrity US TV diving competition Splash.

Kendra stepped down from the programme earlier this week and harbours no shame about her decision.

"I feel like the world is off my shoulders now. Every morning I would wake up and be shaking. It's a really risky show,” she told People magazine.

“I related jumping off the high board into the water to jumping to my death. That's how big of a deal it was. To me, it really meant risking my life."

After stepping off from the 23ft platform on Tuesday’s broadcast, Kendra was very clear about the impact quitting had on her at that time.

"One thing I don't do is quit,” she said during the show.

“This is the first time in my life I've quit something. This will haunt me for the rest of my life."

Kendra is happy to report she no longer feels defeated.

She has created an empowering context around her decision to leave.

"People link quitting to failure," Kendra explained to the publication.

"But on the other hand, I think people understood. After I quit, I expected the world to fall down on me and it actually ended up being the opposite. It's one of those situations either you understand or you don't. If you don't, you hate me. And if you do, you love me."
