    Big, burning skating rumors

    What do you think are some of the most pervasive "off-ice" rumors that circulate about elite skaters? Some top examples I can think of are:

    1. Is [insert name of skater here] gay?
    2. Did Tonya know?
    3. Why did Michelle REALLY leave Frank?
    4. Is Irina pregnant?

    Is so and so gay? probably not, too busy with opposite sex.

    Did Tonya know? she know nuttin about nuttin.

    Why did MK really leave Frank? it was bigger than both of them.

    Is Irina pregnant? maybe slightly

    Joe, you're so funny. I would still like to hear the Michelle and Frank story. Maybe someday...

    gay? Some are. Some arent

    Did she know? I think she did. Just me though

    MK and Frank? I have no clue. Nor do i really care.]

    Irina? How can you be slightly pregnant?

    (1) It's none of our business. Just because a woman or a man is, say, 30 and still single and not attached to a member of the opposite sex, that does not automatically mean that person is gay. And if he/she is gay, who cares? I'm not interested in any of the skater's personal lives -- as my diatribe on the "Up Close and Personal" thread clearly shows.

    (2) Tonya -- "I know nothing." Remember Sgt. Schultz in "Hogan's Heroes"? I wouldn't bet the ranch that she knew, but neither would I bet the ranch that she did not know. Only she and her conscience know for sure.

    (3) Maybe Michelle needed a new look. Maybe Frank felt that the judges were going to pull another "Linda Fratianne" on him at the Olympics (that's his story, not mine, folks). Who knows?
    Michelle fired Frank, but he got over it, and so did she. Life goes on....

    (4) Only Irini and her husband can answer that one. If she is expecting, that's lovely. If she's not expecting, that's lovely, too!

    1. Is [insert name of skater here] gay?

    I don't know anyone and highly doubt any skater will step up to the mike and tell us

    2. Did Tonya know?

    She knew boxing was an option. Honestly, I don't know much about her

    3. Why did Michelle REALLY leave Frank?

    The truth will come to a bookstore near you. In the meantime, fan fiction will do.

    4. Is Irina pregnant?

    how many times does Irina get pregnant but eventually compete. If she is, I say good for her.

    There seems to be a lot of chat online regarding Christopher Bowman lately...

    Can't people just leave him alone! He's just a hard working man who's dedicated to his sport while trying to make a living.

    I can give 1st hand information regarding his character, He's hasn't done anything unethical in regards to his skating seminars or coaching. He's still on staff at Detroit Skating Club and if you've heard any other gossip regarding skating seminars, they simply are not true. It seems like there might just be a vindictive and insecure person out there that has nothing better to do with their time but to try and trash a genuinely wonderful person. He has a hard enough time trying to overcome his past bad boy image without having to deal with added bull on the internet!
