Katherine Webb, who quickly came to fame when she was spotted on ESPN’s telecast of Alabama’s national championship victory, will now be part of a cast including basketball Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, former Cosby Show actor Keisha Knight-Pulliam, Baywatch babe Nicole Eggert, and NFL star Ndamukong Suh.
Celebrity Diving is set to premiere on March 19th and is going to be featuring these celebrities, well, diving. Diving star Greg Louganis is said to be one of the judges.
TMZ found Webb’s inclusion a bit “shocking”:
“As we previously reported, Webb’s BF was upset that she was getting more attention than his team — so Katherine issued a self-imposed media ban on herself. She also told TMZ she wanted to move to Alabama so she could focus on her relationship with A.J…
But when the show came a callin’, Katherine decided she spent enough time in celebrity exile. The show is called Celebrity Diving, both because Diving With The Stars would be too derivative and because calling the cast members ‘stars’ would be stretching it, even by reality TV standards.”
Real star or not, I don’t think any of us will mind seeing her all nice and wet in her bikini.
