budig wins skating 'Skating With the Stars': Rebecca Budig wins with perfect scoreIt’s remarkable how long 5 weeks can feel.

The first — and, let’s be honest, probably the only — season of ABC’s “Skating With the Stars” came to a close on Dec. 21, crowning “All My Children” star Rebecca Budig as its champ.

It’s only slightly surprising, given her domination of the competition and perfect score for her last routine, but Jonny Moseley’s elimination on the eve of the finale did seem to turn the tide in runner-up Bethenny Frankel‘s favor.

Budig shares her handsome silver-covered skate trophy and partner Fred Palascak.

So did the right woman win? Did you even watch? And if not, why are you reading this?
