Quotable: Johnny Weir Won’t Watch Evan Lysacek On “Dancing With The Stars”

“Evan is fine as a person. We’ve been competitors for years and years and years and that’s kinda the forefront to us being people to each other. I think he worked very hard and he deserved that Olympic gold medal and he does a good job. He does his work. But as a person I don’t really know him that well and we’ve never really made the effort to be nice to each other. And I won’t watch him [on 'Dancing With the Stars.'].”

Johnny Weir Pledges His Room And Other Olympic Pre-Performance Rituals

Frisky Rant: Figure Skater Johnny Weir Was Robbed!

Have you seen “Be Good Johnny Weir,” the new Sundance reality show about the figure skating phenom who can do Lady Gaga and Victor Petrenko justice? Well, if your answer is no, you need more glam and ice bling in your life! Nobody brings it like Johnny, the booty-shaking bad boy ballerina with a heart of gold. He’s known for designing his own sparkly costumes — and his even more colorful sound bites. But he’s not all flash and talk; Johnny gave some seriously stunning Olympic performances in Vancouver!

The weird thing is, you’d think a guy who elevates athleticism to art and expresses himself with emotional performances and original costuming would be applauded in an individual, elegant sport like figure skating. But, as we saw this week at the Olympics, where he was robbed of a well-deserved medal, there seem to be invisible point deductions that “protect” the event from having a flamboyant face.

Johnny Weir’s Reality Show Debuts Tonight!


Ice skating was already a pretty flaming sport, but then Johnny Weir came along and it got taken to a whole ‘nother level. Weir is famous for his flamboyant, over-the-top routines, but off the ice, he’s just as entertaining. That’s probably why the Sundance Channel had the brilliant sense to give the dude his own reality show, “Big Good Johnny Weir,” debuting tomorrow night at 10 pm.
