Further to the discussion, I was completely shocked to learn that Josee Chouinard and Jean-Michel Bombardier have separated (and may be divorced now). According to this article, it has been four years. I never would have guessed - they had been together since they were so young and they seemed to have a very strong marriage. Their children would also have been very, very young when they separated. Just wondering if anyone knows anything more or if anyone knows what Jean-Michel is doing now? Just curious...

Sad to read this about S/P. [ETA: And can't recall if I knew about Josee either.] :( When I first saw S/P in the 90s I immediately fell in love with their chemistry.

Best wishes for their child.

I didn't even know Josee was married! Or if I knew, I'd forgotten. Boy, am I out of the loop.

I was watching them on a television broadcast in Vancouver, and you could almost tell that something was wrong with the way that they were acting towards each other, cold, no eye contact, no hand holding. Last time I saw them on tv together were clips from Battle of the Blades, but moreso the 2006 Winter Olympic games right after they got married. They were joking around, couldn't keep their hands off of each other.

It is sad to see these things happen to anybody, so I wish them the best and hope they get through this for the sake of Jesse. As an attorney, I have seen how ugly divorce can get.

Josee and Jean-Michel were married for a few years and have twins who must be at leat 4 years old now. They have been divorced for most of those years - since the twins were infants.

Jamie & David had contracts to commentate at the Olympics so it wouldn't have been great to announce a divorce before then. But David has been travellng to shows and competitions alone for most the 18 months and Jamie recently got a sponsorship for herself alone - can't remember for what firm.

Really sad to hear but not surprised after all the rumours over the last few months.

I do hope they continue to skate together although it should definitely affect the kind of programs they do.

I really loved them as a team so I wish them and little Jesse all the best.

Burt's Bees, I think? There was a meet and greet in Vancouver during or just before the games in February if I remember correctly.

Its a shame the rumors are true. A year and a half though? Wow. I hope Jamie and David can be friends for Jesse's sake. :(

What I noticed from that article was:
"Later, Pelletier separated from his wife as he and Salé became a couple."

He's done it before, and apparently he's done it again. Not an admirable trait.

This is sad, but we can't be surprised with all the rumours who have been around for the last few months. I'm surprised they separated 18 months ago, I thought it was only a few months ago.

This is really sad, but I'm glad they still want to skate together. I wish them all the best, specially for Jesse.

I'm not sure we have evidence to support this claim. As I recall from past interviews and articles, the first marriage was over prior to David skating with Jamie. However, that is just second hand information too.
Whatever the case, it is sad, as is Josee's situation. I wish the best for all four (who were all favourite skaters for me) and their children.

My post on the Stars on Ice Canada thread.... :P



Totally fun watching Jamie/Dave and MF/Patrice skate back to back. Very clear which couple has the better sex lives. All 4 of them as individuals are pure heat, though, I must say. Jamie's the bomb in her long hair and is skating better than ever. Hit all elements but Dave missed a lift in a 4's number with D/L which was obvious because Patrice was doing the lift next to him. really funny...dave's face turned beet red and he almost busted out laughing.
Dave and Jamie's numbers were Try by Blue Rodeo and (You make me wanna) Scream by Jacksons. Any subliminal messaging there?!?!?

What I was trying to convey (rather poorly) was that David was married, met Jamie, and divorced wife #1. Then, he was married (to Jamie), met you-know-who, and is divorcing wife #2. It just seems like history is repeating itself. Perhaps future girlfriends should be wary.

But as far as we know you know who didn't split with her bf until shirtly before Trophee Eric Bompard last year which means Jamie & David were already seperated. Considering all the rumours I imagine the divorce had been a long time coming and they just delayed it to make their contractual obligations to CTV and such easier. I will say I do feel immensly sorry for you know who if the rumours are true

So is David the Canadian Morozov? (there I have said it!)

It is sad but not really surprising.
