I am finding this story really annoying. But, I wrote about it last week so I feel I should give some updates. I should also add in that I had a nightmare about it last night. Evan and Johnny, your bickering gives me nightmares.
So, you read about how Evan Lysacek said that Johnny Weir was essentially not good enough for Stars on Ice to justify selecting him.
Following that, Johnny Weir said he wouldn't skate for Stars on Ice even if they asked him (via Wall Street Journal) and called Lysacek a "slore" and said the two were at war (via New York Daily News). The article also stated about Weir:
I thought it was terrible when Lysacek said what he did about Stars on Ice not inviting Weir to perform, but I'm glad he can admit that he let his personal feelings cloud his answer and that he should not have answered that question. Let's hope Weir can drop it now that he's gotten the upper hand by using the term "slore" (I mean, how can you counter that? really.)...but now that his reality show is no longer focusing on skating (I assume), it's probably in his best professional interest to keep the drama going. So the war may never end! Not sure if I'll be reporting future installments here...since, like I said, the story kind of makes me nauseous. If this is what comes from American figure skaters being in the national spotlight, maybe I like it better when I can only see them on my choppy Icenetwork Trophee Eric Bompard feed.
