Mentioning Bebe, what is she up to these days?

Isn't she skating pairs in an upcoming tsunami-relief gala? Beyond the gala, I'm not sure about a budding pairs career.

Bebe Liang is skating a duet with Braden Overett (not a pairs routine) in the upcoming Skaters Care show (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=78040) (I'm told they also skated a duet in a holiday show in December). I know she currently is coaching at the El Segundo, CA rink.

I'm so glad to hear that! Love them both, and glad to see Braden back on the ice!

I've been waiting forever for a skater to skate to Vienna Teng. I had no idea Zhang already had.

I actually looked up Vienna Teng after seeing Zhang's exhibition last year. :)

One of my favorite ladies exhibitions ever. Simply lovely. Actually have not seen Caroline's yet.

^^ Wasn't her EX program last year to "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus?

She went back to "Lullaby" for her 2010 Four Continents exhibition.

I still listen to her most recent album, Inland Territory. I'm not sure if the track "Antebellum" is skateable, but I'd love to see someone try.

Ok, so some Caroline updates:
1. She came out and started joking with John Baldwin (apparently, she used to turn off his music while they were both warming up). She seemed to be in a great mood, which isn't the vibe she always gives, so I was thrilled to see her looking so happy.
2. Ok, her jumps weren't really much better than you would expect: she mostly did doubles IIRC and I think she tried one triple (and fell). She also fell on a spin.
3. She did look graceful, though, and she looks much smaller off-camera. She really isn't heavy, as most people think. She's actually fine, size-wise.
4. No pearl attempt, but her spins looked better than they have lately.
5. She was also very friendly. I met her after the show and took a photo. She was incredibly sweet and just seemed so happy, which was nice.
For the record: that may have been Lullaby. I have no clue what the music was. :/ My apologies on that one!

She skated a competition program - it was the tango one. She tried two 3loops and fell on the first one, landed the second. The loop is still very low, but at least her arms going into it have stopped being so swingy. And she fell on a deathdrop. I literally went, "Whoops!" which I think was her thought process as well. :lol:

And she was SMILING! It was great to see that spark again.

It's good that she was happy. But I wonder why she didn't do her pearl spin. I hope it's not a back problem.

Maybe it's just not feasible for her to do it anymore.
