    I've seen portions of her online video with her boyfriend...Flexibility isn't an issue for Ms. Hilton.

    There are a few celebs I can think of off the top of my head who were skaters like Allison Janney and Sarah Michelle Gellar. I think it might actually be a lot of fun.

    Condoleezza Rice was for sure a competitive skater for several years (ice dance). I don't know of anyone else.

    Does anyone know more about her record, which years she skated, her partner, etc?

    Skating reality show: i'm having a hard time imagining a free style comp with jumps...but maybe i'm just projecting my own inabilities???? regardless: i'd watch it at least once!

    When I opened the link there wasn't much info. So when does the show air?
    I love reality show unless they are eating gross stuff. (fear factor)
    Any way I am there guess I bought that DVD player that records at the right time.

    What is sounds like to me is, well known skaters would partner with a celebrity and teach them how to perform a program. When I read the article I was actually thinking it would probably be pair skating, since that seems to be what the "Dancing with the Stars" show is like (I haven't watched it), a team dancing for the judges. Each week one of the teams gets eliminated. It might be singles skating however.

    So far they are casting for the show, which was why it was in Variety. No news yet on a projected launch (air) date. I know I'll watch it, and I suspect there will be plenty of moments!

    skating with stars

    There are a lot of actors like who play hockey. {Denis Leary, Keanu Reeves & Tim Robbins} Any of them could probably learn a simple dance like the Dutch Waltz. I for one would love to teach Keanu Reeves the Fiesta Tango!! I also remember a SNL skit where Tom Hanks was a figure skater in a skit and one of the cast was Dick Button it was really funny but he looked like he really could figure skate. The ones I listed would never go on a goofy reality show but their are probably a lot of has been actors that can skate also.

    Okay, I've got a guaranteed ratings grabber -- pair Tonya Harding with Evander Holyfield. And he's already put in a few weeks training in ballroom so let's hear it for boxing, er, I mean dancing on ice!

    Fox's six-episode Skating With Celebrities series will feature six celebrities paired up with well-known professional figure skaters. Like "Dancing with the Stars," "Skating With Celebrities" pairs will compete in weekly elimination performances.

    Well, if nothing else, this will certainly guarantee Tara Lipinski a few weeks of employment...That is, assuming she doesn't get paired up with Dom DeLuise or something.

    You know, I've been trying for a week and I can't read the article (and can't be bothered registering... ). Any real details besides the fact that there will be a new show on FOX?

    Maybe they'll get Nicole Richie, she's said that she was a skater.
