Donna D'Errico is the former Baywatch beauty that is on a quest that many find a little kooky. She went all the way to Mount Ararat in Turkey in search of Noah's Ark.
INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret asked, "Did your friends say you're crazy?"
D'Errico said, "My friends here in L.A. thought I was crazy and didn't want me to go. This is something I've wanted to do since the third grade. I made my decision then that before I died, I would climb Mount Ararat."
But her expedition was cut short when she lost her footing on the mountain and pictures surfaced showing her bruised and bloody face.
D'Errico said, "My face was so swollen and puffy. I was just really blown up."
She said she actually came close to falling to her death.
Moret asked, "How close were you to going over the edge?"
"My feet were dangling off it," she said.
Her kids begged her to give up her obsession, but she is already making plans to go back.
She even has a message for everyone who came to know her as that hot babe in a red swimsuit. "They think that I'm a partier, that I am dumb, that I'm not very intelligent. There's more important things to me," said D'Errico.
