Dancing with the Stars may be celebrating its gala 200th episode results show Tuesday night, with festivities including a performance by country crossover It-girl Taylor Swift, but it’ll be all about the ice as the cast of Skating with the Stars 2010 will finally be offered up for public consumption. So which of your favorite celebs will be tripping the ice fantastic (or maybe just tripping) come November 22nd? The SWTS cast list has been a well-guarded secret, but here’s a peek at a few potential leaks.
Skating with the Stars Cast Member Spoiler #1: Bethenny Frankel. According to gossip magnate Perez Hilton, the straight-talking, feisty star of The Real Housewives of New York will strap on her skates and go for glory. Hilton also notes that Frankel’s RHONY frenemy Jill Zarin might also be in the mix given her “figure-skating experience”, but do we really need that kind of silly drama? This is a respectable reality show, after all. Er….
Skating with the Stars Cast Member Spoiler #2: Vince Neil. It’s apparently not all about the music for the Motley Crue singer, if you believe a report from Las Vegas Weekly that has the 49-year old Neil pegged as a wanna-be blader on Skating with the Stars 2010.
Skating with the Stars Cast Member Spoiler #3: Sean Young. If you ask this DWTS afficionado, it was just a matter of time before the 80s actress-turned-rehab-goer wound up on a reality show designed to improve her image. After all, she did call herself “a comeback waiting to happen” in a 2007 EW article. But will she wind up being a Blade Runner or stuck with No Way Out? We’ll have to wait and see.
In case you’re unaware and wondering what on earth this whole SWTS-thing even is, Skating with the Stars will air on ABC beginning November 22nd, directly following the crowning of the DWTS season 11 winner. The show is modeled on DWTS as well, with each celebrity/professional pair performing each week for judges’ scores and audience votes. One couple will be eliminated each week of the competition based on the outcome of the vote, until the field is whittled down to the eventual winner.
So who will fill the three (or maybe just two, pending Zarin’s status) remaining celebrity spots on the Skating with the Stars 2010 cast list? And which pros will accept the rigorous challenge on the ice? DWTS alums Evan Lysacek or Kristi Yamaguchi, perhaps? Tune in to the Dancing with the Stars results show tonight at 8 and find out!
