Fellow NYC 'Housewife' Says 'Bethenny' Is Serious About 'Skating With the Stars'

Following 'Dancing With the Stars' Monday night, ABC debuted 'Skating With the Stars,' a similar competition, except the celebrities have razor-sharp steel blades strapped to their feet! What could possibility go wrong?
Unfortunately, the celebrities on 'Dancing With the Stars' are more famous than their ice skating counterparts, with the exception of the unsinkable 'Real Housewife' of New York, Bethenny Frankel.
"Knowing Bethenny, she's in it to win it," fellow 'Real Housewife' Alex McCord told me last night over dinner in Manhattan. "Bethenny wouldn't have agreed to do it if she didn't think she could win."
Which is something anyone who has ever met Bethenny would be able to confirm.
"This show means the world to her," an insider tells me. "It's always been Bethenny's dream to be on a network in prime time and out of cable. This is her chance to leave 'Real Housewives' and 'The Apprentice' behind. She's super smart and talented and wants to move to the next level of show business. Look at Elisabeth Hasselbeck, she went from 'Survivor' to hosting 'The View' and she isn't half as talented or driven as Bethenny."
However, if Bethenny does find herself in need of a little support, she need look no further than her fantastic friend Alex. "I always support new moms proving they can get themselves out there, whether it's traveling, going back to work or extreme sports. Go Bethenny!"
