The former Playboy playmate and E! reality star quit the reality high-diving competition show after three episodes, citing her fear of heights. "I'm so sorry, everybody," Wilkinson, 27, said after she walked back from the 23-foot platform. "It's bittersweet. 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."
In an interview with E! News just last week, Wilkinson was open about her fear of heights, but said she was trying to overcome it for her son, Hank Baskett IV. "No joke, I start spinning, I start wanting to throw up, I'm shaking, my fingers wiggle," she said. "Not one person in this world could get me to do anything like that, except of course for my son."
"Damn I got a lot of hate tonight but I'll take it. Big mistake signing up for the show. Sorry I let you all down," she tweeted late Tuesday. "I have no disappointment in myself. I did what I could and that was that. Diving is just not my thing and I found that out throughout the show."
Wilkinson follows the exit of Chuy Bravo, who had to leave the show after fracturing his foot.
