Dancing With The Stars is a true phenomenon, despite the sometimes low caliber of its “stars” and the fact that we totally don’t get it. But people love it, and that means it was only a matter of time before it got a spin-off. And that spin-off is called Skating With The Stars. Has the state of television really come to this? Yes, it has.
Skating will air on ABC starting on November 22 and have the same producers at DWTS, but only six contestants. Because apparently there are literally only six D-listers that can be trusted to be in a reality show where you put blades on your feet. So who are the lucky skaters? Hoo boy. Okay, you’ve got your sauce-loving rocker Vince Neil, your unstable actress Sean Young (who we shall nickname “Blade Runner” for the duration of this show),Ã‚Â reality-show veteran Bethenny Frankel, the Winter Olympics athlete who will obviously be the winner, Jonny Moseley, Disney Channel star (?) Brandon Michael Smith, and soap actress Rebecca Budig.
Choo-choo! Listen! That’s the sound of a train wreck waiting to happen ON ICE. We can’t wait.
