Kristy Swanson wins Skating with Celebrities, and her partner

Skating with Celebrities, FOX’s shameless knock-off of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, ended last night, and the first Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Kristy Swanson, won the competition.

She was partnered with Lloyd Eisler, who she’s now really partnered with, as the two are in a relationship.

That relationship ended Eisler’s marriage, but that didn’t stop Kristy from joking about it earlier this week. Asked on Good Day LA what she won as a result of being on the show, Kristy said, “A boyfriend!” Then she realized what she’d and added, “Oh, awkward moment.”
