Slain model Reeva Steenkamp, two days after her surreal murder, resurfaced on reality television to deliver her own haunting epitaph.
A video shot prior to her brutal Valentine's Day murder aired Saturday with the debut of "Tropika Island of Treasure" — a celebrity-studded program starring the popular South African.
"I think the way that you go out, not just your journey in life, but the way you go out and the way you make your exit is so important," the blond beauty declared in the prescient clip.
"You either made an impact in a positive or negative way, but just maintain integrity and maintain class and just remain true to yourself. I'm going to miss you all so much and I love you very, very much."
The one-minute video was shown on South African television, where 3 million viewers typically tune in to watch celebrities compete for a $113,500 prize.
The gorgeous model was seen swimming, laughing, smiling — and even cliff-diving — on the program that aired with the tacit approval of the Steenkamp family.
One poignant segment featured the doomed model swimming with two dolphins, their snouts gently tapping her cheeks.
Cousin Sharon Steenkamp said Reeva was proud of her appearance on the reality show, shot last year in Jamaica, and made that clear when they last spoke. "Her last words to us personally was that she wants us to watch it," Sharon Steenkamp recalled.
Reeva, 29, was shot to death on Thursday, with her Olympic hero boyfriend Oscar Pistorius arrested for intentional murder.
The South African Broadcasting Corp. never directly asked the Steenkamps for permission to air the show.
But the program's executive producer, Samantha Moon, echoed the murdered model's cousin that running the show "is what she would have wanted."
