Skating Stars Take The Ice!
As we get closer to crowning a new Dancing With the Stars champion, ABC is getting ready to put a freeze on the dance floor with the announcement of the Skating With the Stars cast that includes Vince Neil and Bethenny Frankel. During the live results show of DWTS that saw Rick Fox sent home, ABC revealed its newest cast for Skating With the Stars.
If you thought seeing your favorite stars fumble around the ballroom floor all in the name of a Disco Ball trophy was entertaining, just wait until they slap on some ice skates and tackle a quad.
On November 22, don't change your dial after watching Dancing With the Stars or you're in jeopardy of missing the biggest train wreck to hit the small screen since Kate Gosselin tackled the paso doble. Skating With the Stars has landed.
Skating with the Stars: The Cast
ABC revealed the stellar and diverse all-star cast during Dancing With the Stars' results show and you might be shocked to see who made the ice.
Bravo star of Bethenny Getting Married? and one-time cast mate on The Real Housewives of New York Bethenny Frankel will put down her Skinny Girl Margarita long enough to lace up some skates and take on gold-medal-winning Olympic skier, Jonny Moseley.
If a housewife and an Olympic champion aren't enough to keep you watching, try indulging in the efforts of soap star Rebecca Budig or Disney-raised actor and entertainer, Brandon Mychal Smith. Film and TV actress Sean Young will try to reign as the queen of the ice -- but don't count out legendary rocker and Motley Crue frontman, Vince Neil.
skating with the stars: The Timing
Dancing With the Stars has become one of the most successful reality shows around, so ABC's decision to bring the icy reality show out of its dusty closet just as the season 11 ballroom competition comes to its end is perfect timing. The concept of Skating With the Stars is similar to Dancing With the Stars with one very different angle, where once there was a ballroom floor there is now an ice rink.
What better way to gain ratings than to force a celebrity to take on a skilled sport that also could lead to another favorite past-time of the American public -- watching people fall on their behinds.
Tune in November 22 for the debut of Skating With the Stars.
