ABC announced the cast of its newest show Skating With The Stars last night, and it would not be an understatement to say that Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel is the most notable and relevant “star” on the show.
While ABC’s hit Dancing With The Stars is able to capture D-list celebrities, Skating With The Stars seemed to focus more on Z listers, as most names on the full cast list will have you saying Who?
Skating alongside Bethenny will be All My Children soap star Rebecca Budig, Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil, Olympic ski-champ Jonny Moseley, actress Sean Young, and Brandon Mychal Smith of Disney’s Sonny With a Chance.
So why is Bravolebrity Bethenny Frankel choosing to do the show? “Most things I do are business decisions, but when I heard about this I thought, ‘I just want to do this.’ It’s so awesome,” says Bethenny adding that “nothing really intimidates me, this intimidates me.”
Bethenny, who turns 40-years-old tomorrow also posted on her twitter that she will be filming SWTS and the second season of her Bravo hit show – Bethenny’s Getting Married – at the same time.
Skating With The Stars will kick off its two-hour live premiere on Monday (November 22) at 9pm ET/PT on ABC.
