Has it occurred to folks that he's doing a lot of these things because right now he has the opportunity to, and he enjoys going to parties and hanging out with the beautiful people?

I am quite sure that he is doing these things because he enjoys them; I also think he would very much like to be in a position to continue doing them. That won't happen if he takes an anonymous office job somewhere.

Quite a number of people have made livings and a name for themselves (like the aforementioned Joan Rivers) doing just that and nothing else. I can definitely see Johnny going down that path, but first he's got to stop about the "me me me." :lol:

Actually from what I can tell, Joan has worked very hard her whole life. She was a stand up comedian for decades, appearing on tv shows from time to time and I think guest hosting some of the talk shows, then in the 80s she had her own talk show, and she's also written several books I believe. She's had several lines on the shopping channels for many years, work that involves regular appearances to sell the products live.

It's not like she just started doing red carpets one day and made a living on just that.

ETA - here's her wiki entry - Joan has done a ton over her career, and while she may be famous for being famous now, she has a lot of real work to back up her fame and current position: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_rivers

Well I don't talk about anything else but figure skating a lot of the time... [/SIZE]

You may talk about it all the time, but that isn't all you are doing. ;)

I keep forgetting about the glittery parties you attend. What kind of hat did you wear the Derby?

I wonder if this will be the article that generates another 35 posts to close down the thread?

"People talk about how trashy it is to use 15 minutes of fame, but I'm trying to pursue all of this in a professional way and do the best I can," says Weir. "I don' t care if I fail. I just have fun trying to do these things."

But that's the point, if he's doing anything else, he's not talking about it, so we don't know.

and Johnny doesnt drag around that miserable, personality-free Melissa, that has to be a bonus in his favor

Please let him have the sense to hire a good voice coach and not do it all himself!:rolleyes:
