Is it true? Man, I've got to go download that episode and seeThe article is accurate. There was no "declaration," but more than a few references to "we." JWe. ;)

What a strange sense of humor he has that he thinks it would be "funny" if he won whereas Evan didn't.

From dictionary.com:


fun·ny1    /ˈfʌni/ Show Spelled [fuhn-ee] Show IPA adjective, -ni·er, -ni·est, noun, plural -nies.
–adjective
1. providing fun; causing amusement or laughter; amusing; comical: a funny remark; a funny person.
2. attempting to amuse; facetious: Did you really mean that or were you just being funny?
3. warranting suspicion; deceitful; underhanded: We thought there was something funny about those extra charges.
4. Informal . insolent; impertinent: Don't get funny with me, young man!
5. curious; strange; peculiar; odd: Her speech has a funny twang.

Yeah, but it's not the first time he's said something like that. He's usually pretty open about himself on his show, he just doesn't go into specifics regarding people he's dated/dates or whatnot. He said the same type of thing in his Equality California speech: "The world can be an ugly place and our communit...US are the ones that make it ****ing gorgeous" (said to a crowd of gays). That's why I always laugh when people actually claim he's in the closet, like he's not out until he gives some kind of special magazine interview with quotes placed beside his picture in giant blue lettering: "yep I'm gay!" He's already said he thinks that's cheesey so it's not going to happen. I guess he'll just have to stay "closeted" according to some.

This line really disturbed me:

"But on Sunday's finale, Johnny said to his long-suffering agent, Tara ... , "I know you think the Jews run the world, but let me tell you ..." (emphasis added)

I hate to think that anyone, let alone Johnny's agent, is stupid enough to fall for that kind of bigoted thinking.

He was teasing her because she's Jewish. He's not a bigot.

Haha, now he's a bigot. I love it. His agent Tara is Jewish and is always going on about how Jews make the world go round. He was teasing her. The boy wears a star of David on his chain and said at one point he was even considering converting to the faith. Yeah he's a bigot. Good lord.

I've been a few feet away from him, and Weir is not short. He's not a 6-footer, but he still reads tall.

In Korea, Johnny pushed down on my shoulder in order to be taller than me (I'm 6'1"). But you are right, he is/appears much taller than I thought he'd be. Then again, he tends to wear boots that probably have a heel that is about an inch and a half. He wasn't that much shorter than me.

Thanks for the information ... it does make a difference!

Um, no, no one said HE was the bigot.

That actually really surprised me about the episode- the whole thing seemed to be him refering to the fact that he was gay.

Seeing as how he usually just doesn't say anything either way- it was certainly a focus. (Not to mention the network was using him in a pride week- or something- add during the show).

Of course I don't care who he sleeps with (or doesn't, since he says he never has sex) but usually he likes to keep it as a "it's none of your business who I do or don't sleep with" but the focus of this episode seemed that he wanted to make sure it was our business.

You are probably correct. IMO, if Johnny does get on DWTS, they will probably assign him to work with Anna, and the poor woman will be bothered to the end of the year with press questions asking her to compare and contrast the two! (IMO, if Evan possibly can do it, he should be in the audience a few times, cheering for Johnny ... which would shock the h*** out of people!)

Wouldn´t Anna be way too tall for Weir? The female dancers seem to have very high heels.


Weir is 5'9" according to his official site.

Well, my impression during the years has been that both male actors and male singles skaters claim to be a lot taller than they actually are, LOL.

You know, I stood next to him too. And before we met, I thought he'd be a tiny little guy, but actually he seemed to be quite tall for his size.

Thanks for the birthday pix link HisWeirness! Looks like it was a big deal party and he had alot of fun. I love it when he really laughs and his nose crinkles up. So cute.

Of course I don't care who he sleeps with (or doesn't, since he says he never has sex)

I think I remember that. Some reporter asked him ( essentially ) whether he had sex with men or women. Johnny replied that with his busy schedule, he had sex with nobody. :lol:

Philosophically, can a guy who doesn't have sex be gay? :confused:
