    Johnny Weir Guest Stars On 'Dora The Explorer'

    Never in a million years did I ever think Johnny Weir would be on a kids' show--let alone "Dora the Explorer".

    To be honest, I'm still trying to wrap my head around the whole idea, but good for him. Also, the costume seems muted (for him, at least), but I like it.

    "A little sparkle never hurts."

    Still, I think the smart money's on the Ice Witch.

    That is cute. I loved the "sparkle" part, too.

    I'm enjoying seeing Johnny break out and do things you'd never expect! Cute.

    My kids just watched the Dora the Explorer Skating Spectacular (even though they are a bit past the target demographic) in the hope they would see Johnny Weir, and I watched part of it. We were all very disappointed - Johnny did not make it into the actual special! (On the plus side - Dora landed her last winning jump backwards with a proper landing position.)

    If I were a judge, I'd award the medal to Peppermint Patty.

    Hey, no fair. A bait and switch! Here it says that Johnny appears only in a "promotional spot" for the show, not in the televised show itself.

    Weir is taking new steps in other directions as well, as he has announced a new management team as of beginning of December:

    Yeah, saw this yesterday. What do you all make of it? Pretty big deal to leave Tara Modlin, who has been not only his manager but a very close friend. and why make the switch now?

    Did Tara run a figure skating show saying that donations would be given to a charity, but instead kept the money for herself?
