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!
