    Tara Lipinski

    Tara's career has gotten new life with her commentating gigs with Johnny Weir. Here she is looking pretty.

    I, umm, love the pastel colour of her shirt!

    No, seriously though, I think we don't appreciate retired skaters enough. Diehard Michelle fan here, but Tara was incredible in Nagano. I hope we'll be able to discuss old programs in the Fan Fests section in the future.

    Is Tara still skating in ice shows at the moment, or she has stopped already? I am still seeing her update on Instagram, but not so much following her activities. What a pity for her to stop career at such young age.

    Tara was forced to stop doing the Stars of Ice tour by a recurring hip injury around 2002 and I don't think she has skated at all since then.

    Hey, I just now saw her on Dancing with the Stars as a judge. She must have a good agent these days.

    Mathman - Though she hasn't done shows since 2002, I believe she has skated since then. I seem to remember her being on The Today Show in 2011(?), 2012 (?), where she skated a brief but impressionable routine.

    Ouch, Tara retired from shows that early? I seem to remember a clip from Sochi where she and Johnny exchanged clothes with these two ladies (TV hosts?) and Tara said her outfit from a skating costume from several years ago. Did several years = 12 years ago?

    I found these two clips of Tara on the Today Show twice in 2011. (It looks like the same choreography.)

    Also, here is one from 2011 titled “Tara practicing.” It doesn’t say what she is practicing for, but from the sheets of cloth hanging from the rafters I wonder if she was in one of those shows organized by Oxana Baiul’s agency that featured circus acts along with skating. Ben Agosto and Tanith Belbin put on a show like that in 2011 to raise money for victims of the tsunami and earthquake that forced a relocation of Worlds that year.

    Did she perform in the show, perhaps in Atlantic City, that included US Olympic medalists back through Tenley Albright?

    Tara just appeared as a judge on So You Think You Can Dance. My favorite show of all!
    She didn't seem to contribute much to the judges decisions, the main focus was on dancers, but it might be a good indication of Tara being invited as a host judge later in the season.
