And Bethenny Frankel thought Kelly Bensimon was a headache.

The East Coast socialite struggled on ABC’s Skating With The Stars Monday, as clips showed the sleep-deprived former Real Housewives of New York star bumbling in the week’s practice sessions, punctuated by a performance the judges roundly panned.

Frankel was seen in clips complaining to her pro partner Ethan Burgess about not getting enough rest in preparation for the ice-based competition.

"I haven't slept in weeks, I cant sleep and I've come here with no sleep, every single day," a weeping Frankel, 40, told her partner. "I could go to the Olympics if I could damn sleep!"

After performing, Frankel was criticized by the judges for her plodding, predictable routine.

"It felt stiff, it felt like you were thinking everything," judge Laurieann Gibson said, while judge Johnny Weir said Frankel's routine lacked character.

Frankel was unfazed by the criticism, saying, "I just had the best time of my life. I don't care if they give me zeros -- I really don't. We're not here for the judges."

On the night, Frankel earned the second-lowest score with 62 out of 120 possible points, but was spared elimination, as actress Sean Young got the boot instead.

Skating With The Stars returns Monday at 8/7 on ABC.
