Forget “fear of flying”  – curvy KENDRA WILKINSON’s fear of heights prompts on the air meltdown!  VIDEO

Kendra quit ABC’s diving competition show Splash, saying she just couldn’t overcome her debilitating fear of heights.

On Tuesday night’s episode of the surprise hit, the former Playbo yplaymate — who was paired with extreme skier Rory Bushfield for a synchronized diving challenge — refused to dive off the 23-foot platform, thereby eliminating her from the show.

 “I’m so sorry, everybody,” Wilkinson, 27, said, as her voice cracked with emotion. “This is the first time in my life I’ve quit something. This will haunt me for the rest of my life.”

RadarOnline reported that later, the blonde beauty Tweeted, “Damn I got a lot of hate tonight but ill (sic) take it. Big mistake signing up for the show. Sorry I let you all down.”
