Sean Young (ex-Meggie, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) is hanging up her ice skates. She and partner Denis Petukhov were voted off the ABC reality series SKATING WITH THE STARS on Monday night. Sadly, the low-scoring couple failed to receive enough viewer votes to keep them in the competition. “It was still a great experience,” Young shared with Soaps In Depth after the show. “It was pretty cool that I got out there on the ice and did it. I was a little surprised [that I was voted off first], but TV has nothing but surprises!”
The former Y&R villainess, who took two spills on the ice during her performance, adds, “I just wished I hadn’t fallen! It was interesting because the first week I was so concerned about not falling. But once you do, you’re not afraid of it anymore.”
Young says she’s walking away with a great experience under her belt. “I’m in really fit condition now,” she says. “I’ll take away most my experience with Denis and his wife, [professional skater] Melissa Gregory. They’ve taught me what being a professional skater would be like even though I’m not one.”
Young’s former competitors will miss her. “I love that Sean comes right out and says it,” shares Jonny Moseley, former skier on the U.S. Olympic team. “She’s got great stories. She’s a movie star! That’s always fun to have around.” Adds Brooke Castile, Moseley’s pro partner, “She also gave all of the pro girls a gift, leg warmers, on her last day. It was very sweet and thoughtful of her.”
So what’s next for Young? “A hot tub!” she exclaims with a laugh.
