Lights! Cameras! Sequins! Bethenny Frankel is officially expanding her reality TV resume to include ABC's Skating with the Stars, premiering November 22.
"I have big news guys. no, I'm not pregnant, but this may end up being more difficult than child birth!" Bethenny teased her 300,000 Twitter followers.
Case of the jitters? Bethenny continued tweeting, "ICE SKATING.HOLY ICE BALLS!" and "OMG seeing the promo made me almost wet myself.WTF was I thinking? I legally wasn't allowed to say a peep which was so hard. I tell u guys all."
The show's casting director, Deena Katz, told TV Guide that she has complete faith in the Skinny Girl's talent (and ability to draw in viewers). "If you're going to go with a Housewife, Bethenny has transcended all the other housewives. She has her own show. She is her own person. She's really athletic, she's charming, she's ballsy, she's great. On the record, I have never asked another Housewife. Bethenny is the only one I asked."
Former bestie Jill Zarin – who was rumored to possibly also compete -- already sent tweet love Bethenny's way by posting, "Congrats to @Bethenny for skating with stars. If anyone can do it you can!"
In case you're wondering how Skating with the Stars will coincide with shooting the second season of Bethenny Getting Married?, the multitasking mommy tweets, "Filming both at same time. ROUGH."
She experienced like thirty hours of labor? This is nada, Bethenny. Oh, and by the way, happy birthday! Tomorrow Mrs. Hoppy turns the big 4-0!
Happy Happy Birthday Bethenny! Enjoy your special day. Can't wait to see you on both shows. Best of luck to you.
Love U Bethanny and I love Ice Skating!!!! OMG, what a fabulous Forty U R...I think the Humour Gods have looked upon you and said YES...she is Fabulous! Let her be forty and show the rest of the housewives how to live!!!! I will be watching both of your shows each week, set to series on my DVR!!! Go Bethanny!!
Congrats and happy birthday, Bethenny! I can't believe I am planning on a season pass for "Skating with the Stars" and you are one of the only people whose participation could get me to do so, so kudos to the show's casting director, Deena Katz, she chose the right woman. You are just so much fun to watch! You say the things I wish I would think to say and you always have such a great attitude. Seriously! When things go wrong you deal with a sarcastic humor I just love. I don't care what she says, Jill has got to be so mad. They ask you to be on after her big skating performance/holiday party. You have got to know that this is going to chap her rear! LLLY
So happy we'll be able to see you soon. Miss you a bunch. When can we peek at sweet Baby Bryn??? Miss her daddy, too! Happy Birthday, Bethenny!
NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD WATCH ICE SKATING SHOW TIL NOW. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ON BOTH. YOU ARE MY FAV!!!!!!!
I can't wait. I'm definitely looking forward to watching "Bethenny getting married" and now I'll check out Skating with the stars. Happy Birthday Mrs. Hoppy.
OMG...2 show's to watch! AWESOME! THANK YOU! I can't wait~miss the Happy Hoppy's! Hope you had a wonderful Brthday. Hang in there and all the best to you and the rest of the Hoppy gang!
Happy Birthday, and what a wonderful way to celebrate. Please check the picture of MickeyMouse Reality Chopped, I saw it and laughed to tears, there are you skating and in the background there is Jill in her skating outfit ready to break in on stage and steal your show while a security officer is trying to stop her, a la Tonya Harding, lol I don't watch ice skating but I will for you and also vote as many times as possible. God bless you, Bryn and Jason.
So happy that there is going to be a Season 2 and Ice Skating with the Stars! Love, love, love your show. Last year me and my friends would all meet up to watch your show and drink our skinny margaritas - what a hoot!!! Looking forward to this year's show! Congrats on Brynn - can't wait to see how big she has gotten!

Bethany and Jason and little one everyone in my family just loves the heck outa you all and your aides. Betheny you are so adorable. I just do not know what we will do if we cant see you on TV. You have to find some way to make sure yu get a show or a movie or something. Keep writing books and having fun in your life. I hope you and Jill made up. She really wants to make up and she would be such a great Auntie. xoxoxoxooxoxoxo
I watched "Skating with the stars" after watching you on 'RHWONY". On skating you came across as being bitchy and whiny. Know you were a new mom with baby blues, but you need to get a grip. You're very good at complaining.
I really enjoyed you on skating with the stars. I understood you. You were having a good time. Good for you. Johnny Weir needs to lighten up....this is not the Olympics. Good for you for bringing happiness and joy to that show. Looking forward to your next season.
Bethenny you got it all, a loving supportive husband with good family, good nanny, trainer, assistant guess the only thing missing is your own mom. IAM JEALOUS
