Frost Bite: Skating With The Stars Wipes Out In The Ratings


 
 Not a lot of eyeballs saw All My Children star Rebecca Budig take home the win on the finale of Skating With The Stars. According to Deadline, the show's finale netted 3.7 million viewers, up 60 percent from Monday's airing which brought in 3.4 million viewers. I hope many soapers didn't run out and sign up for ice skating lessons in preparation for a second season!

 

Skating With the Stars Boots Sean Young; Can Budig Win it All?


Going into Skating With The Stars Sean Young thought her opponents should be intimidated by her. Unfortunately, the show’s judges were not. The film actress and former The Young and the Restless star got the boot after falling twice during her second week performance. After getting iced, Young told Zap2it backstage "Mostly I'm disappointed because I felt like maybe I disappointed my partner because he worked really hard with me."

Sean Young on Dancing Competition: “If I Were Them, I’d Be Intimidated by Me”


Gotta love this promo for ABC’s upcoming Skating With The Stars. My favorite line comes from The Young and the Restless’ Sean Young who tells the camera “If I were them, I’d be intimidated by me.” (Editor's Note: Jesus take the Wheel.) Isn’t that a line that the great Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) should be delivering? Watch the Skating With The Stars promo after the jump!



Huh? All My Children’s Rebecca Budig Nixed Joining Dancing With the Stars


 

All My Children
star Rebecca Budig chatted with Zap2It  about her upcoming turn on Skating With the Stars, and revealed she was offered a stint on the ABC uber-hit Dancing With the Stars — and turned it DOWN!
I don't feel any added pressure, Budig tells Zap2it about being one of the inaugural Skating stars. Maybe I will when Nov. 22 rolls around, but not right now. They came to me about Dancing With the Stars several times, but the timing was always wrong. Don't get me wrong, I love to dance, Budig adds, but I am passionate about ice skating. My sister and I skated together growing up, and we'd always watch it on TV. And she is so jealous of me right now.
