Kendra Wilkinson on DWTS Debut: So Nervous!

by at . Comments

Kendra Wilkinson was a mess before her debut performance on Dancing With the Stars, and it showed. But with that under her belt, she's confident in her ability.

Performing the cha cha live made her "a bundle of nerves," said Kendra, despite the fact that she's nude naked, worked as a stripper and starred on reality TV.

Her score of 18 put her in the middle of the pack after the Season 12 premiere. No one was eliminated this week, with the first cut set for next Tuesday.

Pullin' Her Close

"In the cha cha you're not supposed to bend your knees but I had to or I would have passed out," Wilkinson said. "I was so nervous, I barely took a breath."

What worried her? The same thing that would freak out anyone - performing for a huge audience. "I have a fear of the stage, a fear of the crowd," Kendra said.

"[The bright lights of the ballroom] made me dizzy. But I pulled it out and the fact that Carrie Ann [Inaba] said I didn't miss one step made me feel so good."
