I can’t believe that no one else has come up with this idea yet, but it makes total logical sense: Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski should take over E!’s Fashion Police, which appears to be on life support, to say the least. Read more »
OMG: Philly-born Tara Lipinski and Coatesville’s Johnny Weir, the two utterly fabulous figure skating divas (yes, we used “divas” purposely), will be joining NBC’s Super Bowl pre-game coverage this Sunday, and, no, this isn’t a joke.
The New York Post reported that Lipinski and Weir were added to the line-up to provide a “unique perspective:”
“During their inaugural Super Bowl broadcast, the dynamic duo will be doing regular spots from the tailgate party and interviewing celebrities…During the six-hour pregame show, their colorful commentary will be mixed in with the usual gridiron grind from seasoned sports broadcasters like Bob Costas, Josh Elliott and Dan Patrick. Expect to see more of the former skaters in the first three or four hours of the program, which kicks off at noon.”
Of course, the duo quickly took to Twitter to announce who they think will win the big game:
Apparently Olympic skater—and Quarryville, Pennsylvania native—Johnny Weir was doing more than moderating for NBC (and Instagramming his outlandish outfits) at this year’s Sochi Winter Olympics. Amid all the flack he took for being there in the first place, Weir was covertly working with a film crew to document what it was like being gay at the games.
Gay actor and Kinky Boots playwright Harvey Fierstein is in a bit of hot water this morning, after calling Johnny Weird the “F” word. (Not, not that “F” word, this one.) In an interview with Huffington Post about his new play Casa Valentina, the outspoken icon was asked to weigh in on other hot topics. This was his response:
UPDATE [4/14/2014, 4:53 p.m.]: Looks like TMZ had it all wrong. Johnny Weir is denying that he and husband Victor Voronov is getting back together. When asked by Access Hollywood if the rumors were true, he replied, “Nope. I had hope and Victor and I were talking about reconciliation, but it was for not. … I have been sad for a long time … and unfortunately don’t foresee a way to resolve our current marital issues.”
Only a week after the domestic biting incident that made it’s way around the web, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir has announced that he and husband Victor Voronov are getting divorced. He broke the news via Twitter, saying: “It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and I are no longer together. My heart hurts, and I wish him well.”
