Nicole Eggert, the former Baywatch actress who is a contestant on the first season of ABC's surprise hit, Splash, admitted in a new interview that she regrets sharing her back injury photos online.

Eggert, 41, posted topless back injury images of herself on April 22 and removed them a half hour later.

In the pictures, she is lying in a hospital bed and facing away from the camera. With her hospital gown pulled down, Eggert provided proof that her high dive into the pool where she landed on her back was very painful. Her backside is almost completely covered with purple bruises.

When Eggert was asked who took the pictures of her bruised back, she didn't reveal who took them but said the pictures were taken on her phone. She then explained why she shared them, quickly deleted them and admitted that she regrets doing it.

"Unfortunately, I posted it [on Twitter] myself for a few minutes because I thought it was funny. I wanted to share with people," Eggert told Yahoo! "I was getting so many emails and messages and tweets. Everybody wanted to know, and I wanted to share with people:' Yeah I'm cool, here's the damage.' I had it up for like a half an hour. And at some point in that half-hour they grabbed it," she explained about the leak.

"I'm not blaming the person that took the picture, because they took it on my phone. I probably shouldn't have posted it," she confessed. "I had to email it out for medical reasons and keep sharing it, and somehow somewhere it got leaked and whatever. It is what it is."

Splash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
