    I just don't think Johnny has any right to infer anything about Evan's sexuality when he refuses to allow anything to be inferred about his own. He should give Evan the same courtesy he demands. It's just classless. I've never seen Evan be a whiner. I've never seen Johnny be one, but the SOI debacle was based on an OPINION by his agent; not an SOI statement. I love Johnny(I love Evan,too) but Johnny goes too far sometimes. I think HE is the one who is preoccupied with Evan. Watch "Be good, JW"- before any competition...it's all about: "I'm competing against EVAN" or "At least I don't have to see EVAN". It gets old. I like funny, snarky Johnny. I dislike bitchy-diva Johnny. Johnny's great, amazing, unique- but I've come to the conclusion that he REALLY doesn't listen to anyone.

    Well, this begs the question of exactly why Nastia, Evan's stated current girlfriend has had zero to say? Other than the posing I saw during Oly coverage, she has not been on the scene. I would think she would say something subtley supportive and nice if she is indeed his new squeeze. I wonder how Tanith and Evan ended their relationship? When Michael Jackson was accused of being gay, I recall Lisa Marie saying a few times he was not and that it was a real marriage. Evan could use support as he clearly wants a heterosexual image. I think that's fair to say.

    Go here and you can vote on the question, "Are Evan Lysacek and Nastia Liukin dating?"

    The choices are:

    * Yes, he's just shy about it.
    * No, she's making stuff up.

    I really don't think Nastia and Evan are "together" right now, if they ever were. After she announced to People right after he won Gold that they were together (more orless those were her words), and he denied it she has not bee photographed with him, as advoided his twitter page never showed up for a DWTS taping etc. Evan has been seen in the company of other ladies. I think he thought of her as a cute friend, maybe a little more, but was certainly not about to commit to being her "boyfiriend" she got mad, etc. This is all speculation of course.

    With 'straight' guys, most like to 'make out', not necessarily fall in love.

    Does it really matter if anyone is gay? It's no longer sinful, or criminal what with all the divorces in the straight world.

    Let's judge Evan and Johnny on their skating.

At least a couple of TV skating shows coming up, and probably more. I don't think that Evan has the time right now to record a song and write a book (if he really wanted to).
    Evan's started singing now? Wow. he's really becoming all around.
    I think Johnny's the jealous one... they used to be neck in neck and now Evan's clearly in a class above Johnny. It's clear that everyone - including Evan - is sick of this.
    And if Evan and Nastia were dating (which I was never sure of) they must have broken up by now. Since the Olympics, I haven't seen a single new photo or tweet, and she hasn't been at Dancing With The Stars.

    If you're refering to Tonya & Nancy, for the hundredth time, it was Tonya's exhusband and his goons that carried out the attack! Tonya's alledged involvement in planning it would have to render the Scottish verdict "Not Proven".

    Johnny Weir used to be one of my favorite skaters, but he's really turning me off. He's being incredibly immature and overreacting over a comment Evan made without thinking. We all make mistakes and Johnny just needs to move on. Evan's acting fine, he's just trying to defend himself, and Johnny's brought it to the point where Evan can't "ignore" it. This is really bothering me and I have removed myself from Johnny Weir's fans on Facebook.
    Also, Johnny was supposed to room with Evan in Vancouver, but he refused and roomed with Tanith instead. Other than Tanith, Sasha and Lambiel, I don't think he likes ANY skaters very much.

Although he still denies it, it seems pretty obvious he will not compete again. maybe do his fantasy show with Lady Gaga? How long will that last? 10 appearances if that? Lady Gaga has other things on her plate. He was interested in fashion school but has not dedicated himself to that and after seeing his fashion sense I don't see a career in that particular field.

    I agree with you - although it is hard to deny Johnny has hit the the big time getting his picture taken with red hot super celebrity Kelly Osborne!!!!!

    Doesn't this make Orser and Boitano look better and better?

    Orser was in the "Plushenko position" in the 1988 Olympics, so to speak--he lost by the 6.0 version of less than a point, as I recall. Yet he was always gracious about Boitano, and Boitano was always a gentleman back to him. I will never forget reading that Boitano, acutely conscious of Orser standing a step down on the podium--on home ice at that--during the medal ceremony, decided not to make too big a fuss about his victory so as not to rub Orser's face in it. Adult behavior in the public spotlight! Amazing to behold.

    I generally admire Evan as a skater, as a hard worker, and as a person. I like Johnny's skating, but his behavior is beginning to wear on me. My feeling about Evan's one snippy comment is that it was out of place, but nobody's perfect, and he's probably suffering from extreme sleep deprivation these days in any case, and anyway, he apologized. If he's hiding something about his personal life, well, that's what a personal life is! Personal. I wish Johnny would find another way of putting himself in the spotlight and not belabor the point.

    Evan did what everyone at the Olympics tried to do: practiced hard and skated his best, in hopes of winning the gold. No skater does that (as far as I know) to get back at another skater. Skaters try to win because that's the point of a competition. When Tara beat Michelle in 1998, I was disappointed in the outcome, because I love Michelle's skating, but I didn't think the victory was Tara's "fault." She did her best, and she won the gold. Good for her! Likewise, Evan did his best this year, and he ended up with the gold. He didn't set the judges up so that things would come out his way. He competed and won, this time. Someone else will win another time. So it goes. Johnny should let his skating speak for itself. Whoever said he was sounding like high school is right.

    In ten years, I predict Johnny will cry when he looks at these photos and interviews. He's really damaged his public image. I am very sorry that so many skaters I liked in the past have really damaged themselves this year.
