Frankel posted about the star-studded event on social media
Writing about her attendance at the April 15 event, Frankel shared a photo of herself in her skates at the rink and captioned it, “This is me in my element… the rink was my babysitter and a place away from my crazy house.” I’m literally happiest when I’m dancing on wheels… being able to share that with my daughter in a legendary place in New York with an old school disco group was legendary… really. Xo.” She also shared a compilation of videos from the evening on her Tick tock.

An after-party was held at Le Chalet at L’Avenue at Saks, Page Six wrote, where Mary J. Blige danced to her own hit. “Mary J. Blige danced with will.i.am, Dr. Dre, D-Nice and Q Tip on their own song. DJ Nikki Kynard performed ‘Just Fine,'” the outlet wrote.
Frankel competed in ice skating on Skating With the Stars in 2010
As some RHONY fans may recall, Frankel has some experience skating, although perhaps more on skates, having appeared on 2010’s “Skating With the Stars.” The former Bravo star made it to the final with her pro partner Ethan Burgess but lost the competition to Rebecca Budig.
Frankel, who was 40 at the time of the competition, said: “Rebecca absolutely deserved it. She should become a real ice skater,” it says People. She added: “I’ve taken on too much, but when you do that you just have to push harder and see it through. And you will get what you want. You will achieve it in the end.”
