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.

Name: Rebecca Budig
Claim to Fame: Greenlee Smythe on All My Children
Rebecca Budig first made her appearance on Aerosmith’s music video Living on the Edge, then later appeared briefly in Batman Forever, before landing a role on Guiding Light and then All My Children. Rebecca was previously contacted to appear on Dancing With the Stars, but the timing was never right. Maybe she was just holding out for a skating version, thinking her tiny 5′ 1″ frame will give her an advantage. Maybe that’s just pure speculation on my part and holds no basis in truth. Rebecca being the youngest of 8 children, I will be expecting a lot of temper tantrums though, and those are always fun to watch.
