Johnny Weir. Holy cow! All I can say is - keep up the truth AND the sass, girlfriend! He answers all fan questions, good and bad, on his website. Thankfully for us, he answers it VERY directly.
Q: Hi Johnny! First off, I love you and your style of skating. My question is; having been friends with Tanith Belbin for a while, do you feel weird hanging out with her now because of her relationship with Evan, since you and he are rivals? I hope not, because she seems like a really fun and nice person and I don't understand why they're together but whatever. Anyway you are a much better skater than Evan, always have been, always will be and I hope their relationship isn't getting in the way of your friendship with her.
A: I was a little shocked about their situation when I realized what was going on last year, but it's fine. Tanith is a chameleon and can change her personality to match her boyfriend or friends. She's always been like that, not exactly in a bad way, unless I don't like her boyfriend. It's not really my business what she and Evan do, but I do wish she acted the way she did a few years ago. In general we're still cordial.
Q: Hey Johnny!! You are one amazing inspiration to me, in and out of skating.... So thank you, just for being you!! I even met you once! I have a picture. But - to my question. What do you think of Michelle Kwan? And, how did you feel about her pulling out of the Olympics?? Thanks... Hugs!
A: I think she did what was right for her at the time and that it was smart. She made her own decision. I don't know Michelle like a best friend and I haven't seen her since Champions On Ice this year in Denver, but she is adjusting well to her new life in college. She yelled at me last year for not going to meet President Bush at the White House, so I didn't like that, but otherwise she's always been very cool.
