Johnny vs. Bethenny Throw-Down-- one reason to still watch Skating With the Stars?
Fast forward to 5:20 to see the throw-down begin. Things start off sweet from Mr. Weir, but ten seconds later he's singing a different story.
All things that happened in the past aside, I thought Bethenny did well to keep her mouth shut this time around while Johnny instigated things during his review. Partner Ethan Burgess seems to be over all of the cattiness.
I know Bethenny has made comments that she really doesn't care what the judges think, but we've seen actual competitive skaters say they care more about making the audience happy than pleasing judges-- do those skaters get told that there's essentially no point in watching them anymore? I don't think so. It's a stupid television show that won't come back for a second season, and it isn't going to make Johnny any more famous. I wish he would have just shut his mouth this week.
By the way, if I had only skated for two months and was trying to make the best of this disaster of a show, I'd probably be a little upset with hearing how bad I was every week, too... especially when other skaters can fall and be dragged all over the place and be told how fun and great they are (see Vince in week two).
