Bethenny Frankel took a tumble while roller skating in New York City on Thursday evening, with a number of celebrity friends on hand to see the fall.

The Rockerfeller Center ice rink was transformed into a roller rink for the opening of Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace. The event was hosted by Usher and drew in a slew of celebrities, including Frankel, who seemed confident as she applied lip gloss while bouncing to the music on her rollerblades. As she turned, the star seemed to lose her balance and wound up taking a hard fall, according to a video clip posted by TMZ.

After over-leaning on her skates, Frankel ended up landing on her backside. A friend could be heard in the background shrieking, “Bethenny!” as she hit the ground, according to footage captured in the video. The “Real Housewives of New York” star was offered assistance and quickly rose to her feet. (RELATED: Kamala Harris Nearly Falls Off The Podium Ahead Of White House Speech)

A number of big names laced up to participate in the celebrations, according to Page Six. Mary J. Blige, Dr. Dre, Floyd Mayweather, Jermaine Dupri, Michael Strahan and Meek Mill were among the many celebrities that took a whirl on their rollerblades at the event, reported the outlet.

Aside from Frankel’s fall, other highlights of the evening included Usher putting his  “1, 2 Step” on full display as he danced on roller skates to the beat of Ciara’s song, and a few moments that displayed Mill’s talents skating backwards, according to Page Six. The rink will be open until October and is sure to host many more epic moments, reported the outlet.
