I don't think Michelle has taken a college course in a while, maybe since summer of 1999, but I could be wrong. you're right, she has done cameos in a couple shows/movies, but I think she did it more as fun, not as pursuing another career. I guess what I mean is Sasha seems serious about acting and modeling and even cooking, as future careers. Michelle appears to be seeking another interest. I hope she can find her niche!
In a recent COI interview Michelle also mentioned politics as something she might eventually be interested in. Maybe going to the White House, meeting (former figure skater) Condoleeza Rice, hobnobbing wth the presdent of China, dating the son of a prominent and politically active family, etc., put a bug in her ear.
The main difference between figure skating and politics: in figure skating, no matter what you do -- win or lose -- everybody loves you. In politics, no matter what you do, everybody hates you.
I don't know about "everybody loves you" in figure skating.
I think Michelle may be finding her niche. I think she might have seriously considered acting, and after doing cameos (and getting a lot of bad reviews for "Ice Princess", decided that acting was not for her.) Mathman is right -- she has mentioned studying political science (and international relations) with a potential political career -- she sounds a lot more interested in doing that than she ever sounded in psychology (her first choice of major). However, I think it not uncommon for people to find their niche during their college years, and maybe Michelle is one of those.
I'm ok with MK becoming a political scientist. Why not? We have retired figure skaters who have become medical doctors and surgeons. Can you imagine MK getting a job with the State Department and given an Ambassadorship to the Ivory Coast (or whatever it is called now). I believe it has the largest ice skating rink in the world.
Well, if a former child movie star can become an ambassador, why not Michelle?
how true that is. I do hate all politicians.In politics, no matter what you do, everybody hates you.
Is Ice Princess the one where she plays a Peggy (and Dick) role? I would think that was a cameo also. Of course, I didn't see it. Why would anyone want to critique it?
I think it was a cameo role and very brief. It showed her and Brian as commentators and I believe Michelle said something like,"This could be one to watch at the next Olympics." or something. Very brief. The whole movie got poor reviews.
Yes, but some of the reviewers went out of their way to "comment" on the cameos. There were several of them when the film came out, but this one is still available:
I just saw Ice Princess this afternoon. Can you say "cheese?!"
Michelle and Brian didn't appear to be acting to me. Michelle sounded as she would if she was being interviewed by Uncle Dickie or Aunt Peggy after a skate.
Sasha was praised by Michael Damian? Wasn't his most prominent role playing Danny Romalatti on Y&R? Well, then I'm sure praise coming from him certainly means Sasha is the greatest actress since Meryl Strep! Give that girl and Oscar already, and I pray she thanks Michael Damian in her acceptance speech.
I can't wait to see her act!
