Chuy Bravo E! Networks

If you can't take the wetness, get out of the pool! Or something like that.

Chelsea Lately star Chuy Bravo will no longer be competing on Splash, the new ABC diving competition series, a show rep confirms to E! News.

"Chuy fractured his heel and will not be able to dive, however, he will continue to be a part of this season," ABC tells us.

Bravo will be replaced by U.S. soccer legend Brandi Chastain, who's famous for not only her extensively-decorated athletic career, but for taking off her shirt in celebration after the United States' victory over China in the 1999 Women's World Cup.

Chastain will be competing against former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb, reality star Kendra Wilkinson and comedian Louie Anderson, among other celebs.

Splash premieres next Tuesday, March 19 on ABC. Chastain better get up on the high dive, and fast!
