Deborah Gibson spoke with The New York Daily News about her decision to take part in the new Fox reality series ‘Skating With Celebrities’, which premiered last night. “I’ve been asked to do every reality show under the sun for the past few years, and I’ve said ‘no’ to everything,” she told the Daily News. “When the call came in, I basically turned into a 10-year-old girl. I was so intrigued by it. It meant that I couldn’t do ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ but I preferred to skate. It’s just riskier and crazier. I’ve danced before, I hadn’t ever taken a skating lesson. I just saw it as such a unique opportunity to do something different.”
