'Skating With the Stars' Cast Announced: Bethenny Frankel, Vince Neil to Compete

Bethenny FrankelABC announced the cast of its new series, 'Skating With the Stars,' on last night's episode of 'Dancing With the Stars.' The spinoff show will feature six celebrities learning how to figure skate with professionals.

Competing for the title are reality star Bethenny Frankel, actresses Sean Young and Rebecca Budig, musician Vince Neil, Olympic skier Jonny Moseley and actor/rapper Brandon Mychal Smith. Their professional partners will be announced soon, and Entertainment Weekly reports that the pros "won't necessarily be household names so don't hold out for, say, a Brian Boitano or a Kristi Yamaguchi."

It's a well-rounded cast: a beloved reality star, an out-of-the-spotlight actress, a soap star, an out-of-the-spotlight musician, a professional athlete and a Disney star (for the youth vote) -- all the components that make 'DWTS' lineups so successful.

'Dancing With the Stars,' now a phenomenon for ABC, also launched with a small cast in 2005 -- 200 episodes later, it's still going strong. Fox attempted a similar show when it aired 'Skating With Celebrities' in 2006, an American version of the U.K. show 'Dancing on Ice.' Kristy Swanson took home the trophy on that series.

'Skating With the Stars' will premiere Nov. 22.
