Untrained celebrities diving from springboards and platforms into a pool of water definitely sounds like a good idea. No chance of anything going wrong there.
Oh, wait. There’s already been an on-set mishap for “Splash.”
TMZ is reporting that comedian Louie Anderson got in a spot of trouble during one of his dives. Sources say he became too tired to climb the ladder out of the pool, continually falling back into the water.
But never fear. NFL player Ndamukong Suh came to the rescue, along with trainer Greg Louganis. The two lifted Anderson to the poolside, where he sat coughing up water for a minute.
Louie’s rep tells TMZ that Louie is “feeling great, loving the challenge.”
So … who’s excited about this show? Anybody?
