She has been a great champion and I hope to see her fully recovered next season."

    The way she responded seemed OK to me. Only Kwanfans would take objection to the way she phrased it, IMO.

    From A Michelle Fan

    This is coming from a Michelle fan. I think those of us who call ourselves her fans (Michelle's) have been way too hard on Sasha, especially regarding her comments when asked about Michelle's situation. Sasha's comments were appropriate and respectful. I think that's enough. I saw the interview, Sasha looked great and everything she said was pleasant and courteous. I think we need to give it a rest. Do I think for one minute Sasha was sorry Michelle couldn't be there? Hell no, Michelle is her number one competitor, and I wouldn't expect her to lie about it. That's dishonest. She answered the question honestly and nicely considering the circumstances. Let Sasha have her time in the spotlight without criticizing everything she does and says. She's seems very nice and those who have met her in person speak highly of her-especially the younger skaters. That says alot. Sasha is very deserving of our respect after the way she handled a very disappointing situation. Let's show some graciousness ourselves.

    I wonder if she had to share a dressing room with any of those sloths, bears or monkeys.

    I've got DV video, but obviously I'd have to convert it and screencap it.

    Sasha was also on Access Hollywood tonight. They showed clips of her before she went on Leno. She told Access Hollywood that the next time she's on Jay Leno will be as an actress. She would like to act in an historical movie or act as a real life character. She's on Kelly and Regis tommorrow morning, then The Ellen Show in the afternoon. Then off to the Oscars this weekend. Boy, do she have a busy week, then off to Worlds. She did an excellent job on Access Hollywood. :chorus: :chorus:

    Haha, Sasha as an actress. I can't see it - but I can see her doing historical stuff for some reason. I know she loves historical novels and biographies and such (I know some of her more recent favorite books are mine, too, it's kind of sad...but I've always been addicted to historical fiction, if it's good anyway).

    This Kwan fan has not objection to how Sasha phrased her reply. It's not good to lump fans together.

    I did not watch the show but I heard about it from someone that did.

    Here is a question for those who watched it:

    Did Jay Leno refer to her medal as her Olympic medal (not SILVER medal)? Did he call her 'Olympic champion'? OK, that's two questions.

    Seriously, did it appear to be an effort to create the impression that she actually won the Olympic gold? I have heard that some people that don't follow FS think that she did.

    If this is true, that would be a shame. I would say that NBC violated the ethics of journalism. However, I would like to hear from those who watched the show about how it was presented.

    This is another Kwan fan who has no objection to how She phrased her reply. And I don't want/expect everyone souded like Kwan, after all had she been critcized as 'phony'? IMO, Sasha did as gracious as she could manage, think about the Sasha in old days.

    I diddn't watch the show either. But was Irina invited? I read somewhere that both Sasha and Irina were invited to some show, but not the winner Arakawa. Was it this show?

    Keep in mind that the Tonight Show is very convenient for her, because she lives in southern California. Obviously, that's not the case with Slutskaya or Arakawa.

    Oh, thanks. I don't know it is broadcasted from Cal. I bearly watch talk show. Unless I absolutely has nothing to do and can't sleep early.

    I was just thinking if both Cohen and Irina were invited not Arakawa then what Vash said in his/her post make some sense....but seems this is not the case here.
