Johnny Weir to Host Skating With the Stars

Johnny Weir, the figure-skating Olympian, will return to reality television as a judge on ABC's Skating With the Stars, or, as we like to refer to it, Falling on the Ice With the Stars. Choreographer Laurieann Gibson and Olympian Dick Button will join Weir in judging the axels/loops/staying uprights of Bethenny Frankel, Vince Neil, Sean Young, and three others. The takeaway here is that Johnny and Bethenny are going to have an occasion to converse regularly, hopefully convincing broadcasters they need a spinoff show of their own. [Futon Critic]
