Skating With The Stars on ABC Cast Announced

During last night’s results show on Dancing With The Stars, a new show’s cast was announced.  Another spin off!  Skating With The Stars will premiere on November 22nd.

The name is obvious.  Celebrities will be competing alongside professional ice skaters in the same type format that we see on DWTS.  But hello!  Talk about a twist…. ICE!  This is going to make this a tad more interesting.  You have to have a lot more guts to take the ice that the dance floor.

Here is who will be braving the first round of Skating With The Stars:

Bethenny Frankel (Real Housewives of NYC)

Vince Neil (Motley Crue)

Jonny Moseley (Olympic Ski Champ)

Rebecca Budig (All My Children)

Sean Young (actress)

Brandon Michael Smith (Sonny With A Chance)

If I am being honest, it’s a pretty weak cast.  But let’s give it one season to warm up.  Then hopefully some bigger names will be ready to brave the ice.
