Katherine Webb, sadly, has turned in her one-piece and quit the celebrity diving show, Splash. This is disastrous news for everyone who enjoyed the element of charm school classiness and beauty queen sex appeal she brought to ABC’s low-rated Tuesday night reality competition.
Webb had been doing quite well on the program up to this point, even earning a coveted 10.0 score from the judges for
not drowning completing a dive with former child star Drake Bell (which you can watch, in all its glory, below). However, as she explained on-air last night, “I’ve had the worst time training this week because even the most simplest dives shot pain all the way from the middle of my back down my leg. I went to the doctor and unfortunately he told me I’m out for the competition.”
Does anyone have her doctor’s phone number? We want to register a complaint.
A teary Webb was consoled by Louie Anderson, who you might remember from that old Blind Melon video. Yes, we too were surprised to learn that the Bee Girl and Louie Anderson are indeed the same person, but facts are facts!* Webb’s withdrawal from the competition means that Anderson gets to stay on the show, which we’re sure thrilled ABC’s executives and marketing team to no end.
We sincerely hope that Katherine Webb is able to put this tragedy behind her, and that she doesn’t let this experience ruin tarnish her God given ability to put on a bikini and look amazingly hot while doing so.
*Note: This is not actually a fact.
