Gallery: Heartbreakingly Beautiful

Binky’s Blog: Today we present the first photographs of Johnny’s haunting new program, ‘Heartbreak,’ which he premiered at the Skating Club of Wilmington’s Spring Ice Show. Though he was less than satisfied with his performance — particularly Friday’s, according to his lol-worthy comments about it on the podcast — I am here to confirm that the spellbound audience loved it.

This program is both classically expressive and graceful Johnny, and yet strikingly different. As always, and as only he can, Johnny does not skate to or on top of the music — a well-cut mix of ‘How It Ends’ by DeVotchka, and ‘You & Me (Flume Remix)’ by Disclosure — but rather completely embodies it to paint a mesmerizing story of love and shattering heartbreak, told through blades slicing across a canvas of glittering, reflective ice.

AUDIO — Johnny Weir: Grit, Glamour, and Greatness

ForbesJohnny Weir — a three-time U.S. ice skating champion, two-time Olympian, and World bronze medalist — is not exactly in my wheelhouse. I know very little about the sport and can barely stand up on ice skates.

But as I wrote about last summer, Weir, along with his broadcasting partner and Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski, really got my entire family into the sport during the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi when they debuted.

Weir still performs in shows and has evolved into a pop culture icon whose fashion and opinions resonate on social media. He and Lipinski will be working the Beverly Hills Dog Show on the USA Network Easter Sunday evening. Besides the Olympics, he and Lipinski are commentators on everything from dog shows and Kentucky Derby, to the Super Bowl and policing fashion at the Oscars.

What has Weir’s journey been like and how does he ride the waves? In this podcast I chat with Weir about his life, career and ambitions.

Listen below, or on Podcast One or iTunes.

AUDIO — The Tara and Johnny Podcast, Episode 33: Non-Stop; Jealous of Dubby; Johnny’s Upcoming Trip

Tara and Johnny: “She’s an Olympic champion. He is a two-time Olympian. Together, they’re figure skating royalty turned NBC commentators. And now they’re pop culture icons. But more importantly, they’re best friends. NBC presents: ‘Tara and Johnny.’ Here’s Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir.”

Tara and Johnny have been going nonstop for the past couple weeks. Johnny did a charity show for the historic Skating Club of Wilmington, while Tara’s sleep is being affected as her wedding is fast approaching. What’s not helping the situation: Dubby has taken a huge shine to Todd Kap and Tara is getting super jealous.
