Bethenny’s getting more screen time.

Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel, Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil and Olympic ski champ Jonny Moseley have been tapped for ABC’s new TV competition “Skating with the Stars.”

The network revealed its inaugural “Skating” cast Tuesday during “Dancing with the Stars’” 200th episode, with “No Way Out” actress Sean Young, “All My Children” Rebecca Budig and Disney Channel actor Brandon Michael Smith also set to compete on ice.

Frankel, a former New York “Housewife” who landed her own spinoff, “Bethenney’s Getting Married?” called the opportunity to lace up skates in the public eye “awesome.”

"Most things I do are business decisions, but when I heard about this I thought, 'I just want to do this.' It's so awesome," she said, People mag reported.

Young told EW.com she was more reticent to join the show, having been approached for DWTS and ultimately passed over to make way for ex-Paul McCartney flame Heather Mills.

“They picked the lady with the one leg over me,” she said. “I couldn’t quite understand. I was like, ‘What?’

But the former “Young and the Restless” actress said the rehearsals in advance of her “Skating” debut have been “rewarding.”

“I haven’t fallen. I’m pretty coordinated, I’ve got the knee pads and all that kind of stuff. I meditate,” she told EW.

“Skating with the Stars” debuts Nov. 22.
