Skating With the Stars crowned its first winner last night. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that Rebecca Budig took home the crown, since she was the only one who could skate right from the start. She competed in the finale against Bethenny Frankel, which also isn’t surprising. Brandon Mychal Smith cheered on from the audience, even though he left the show early due to a “stomach virus,” which was probably just a fancy way of saying he didn’t feel like skating anymore. And who could blame him? The show’s ratings took a nosedive after the first episode. Will Skating return for a second season? Only time will tell, but I won’t hold my breath.
