Vince Neil Survives Skating With The Stars Cut, Takes A Tumble
November 30, 2010
Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil survived the first week of cuts on the new reality show Skating With The Stars by beating out actress Sean Young, who was sent home. Vince also suffered an awkward fall on the ice during his performance, taking his dance partner Jennifer Wester with him, and ended up tied for last place on the judges scorecard with a score of 30 out of 60.
“It’s hard work. It’s an Olympic sport, and it’s just really tough,” the Motley Crue frontman told Billboard.com as he prepared for the reality show’s second week when, among other things, he’ll lift his professional skating partner Jennifer Wester above his head. “I’m in rehearsals from 10 in the morning ’til six o’clock at night, seven days a week. It’s pretty grueling. It’s hard on your body. I’ve got bruises all over. It’s tough.
“Y’know, I look at the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ thing and I’m like, ‘How easy is that? You’re not on ice. You’re actually on your feet in a nice, warm environment.’ We’re on ice, on a blade, trying to do things to dance on ice. It’s a whole other ball game.”
