One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
Vera Wang will soon be hitting the ice again.
The former competitive figure skater (did U know that piece of trivia?) will be honored by Figure Skating in Harlem at its annual Skating with the Stars event on April 2nd.
As for guests, they’ll be able to skate with several Olympic hotties like Evan Lysacek and Sarah Hughes, as well as Wang.
Tickets to the gala start at $300 with proceeds going to benefit the non-profit organization Figure Skating in Harlem which provides girls with skating and educational opportunities to help build their self-worth.
Also at the event as honorary chairs will be Donald Trump and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actress Tamara Tunie.
Can't wait to see what Wang will wear on the ice.
