ABC and the producers of Dancing With The Stars have decided to put their successful competition reality series on ice! Skating With The Stars will premiere Monday, November 22 at 9pm and will feature six celebrities attempting to channel their inner Peggy Fleming as they are paired with experienced ice skaters and perform dance routines for the judges and television viewers!
The six contestants on the inaugural season of the show are Olympic ski champ Jonny Moseley, Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil, All My Children star Rebecca Budig, Blade Runner actress Sean Young, Brandon Mychal Smith of Disney’s Sonny With a Chance and most importantly… former member of The Real Housewives of New York City and star of her own breakout Bravo reality show Bethenny Getting Married? Miss Bethenny Frankel!

That’s right, the New York Times best-selling author and creator of Skinny Girl margaritas will be taking to the ice to expand her resume even further! Here is the promo video for the show which includes a few funny Bethenny training moments:
Here’s Bethenny’s bio from the show’s website. (I had to correct the spelling of her name a few times)
Bethenny Frankel’s knack for making healthy food taste delicious elevated her to national prominence as a celebrated natural food chef. She’s the creator of the sought-after “Skinnygirl Margarita,” the best-selling author of Naturally Thin and The Skinnygirl Dish and a spokesperson for Pepperidge Farm.
Bethenny attended the National Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts and has a monthly column in Health Magazine and is a Contributing Lifestyle Editor for the US, UK and Australian editions of OK! Magazine. What we’re trying to say is…she’s in demand!
We were first introduced to Bethenny’s wit and wisdom watching her as the first runner-up on NBC’s The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. This experience led to her time on Bravo’s hit series The Real Housewives of New York for three seasons. She even scored her own a spin-off series, Bethenny Getting Married? It premiered with the highest ratings in Bravo history. Excellent!
Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting remained on the New York Times bestseller list for an astonishing for 18 straight weeks. Her book, The Skinnygirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life was released just in time to support “new year, new me” resolutions with delicious, practical, effective recipes and lifestyle tweaks.
Bethenny launched the “Skinnygirl Margarita,” a bottled, pre-mixed beverage that drastically reduces the calories of the traditional cocktail. Households across the country have made Skinnygirl Margaritas their “it drink.” Pass the salt, please!
Bethenny currently resides in New York City with her husband, daughter and dog, Cookie. She’s on a mission to democratize healthy living through her appearances, books, columns and blogs. We’re just glad she found time to fit Skating with the Stars into her busy, busy schedule!
