No I can't, because it has never been about Sasha's performance. It's about her and how much attention is lavished on her regardless of performance. She had the wrong motivations for a skating career all along. She has delved halfheartedly into acting because she thought it would be an easy segue into another career where it's all about "you." Nothing has come of it. Tara did the same thing but has surprisingly been able to salvage a successful commentating career out of it. Where Sasha is going, no one knows, but from her short-lived Vancouver "analysis" stint, it's clear that she does not have the aptitude for public speaking. I think that SOI is the best place for her, because as a performer the attention comes first and skating technique comes second, and this has been the trajectory of her skating path. However, even SOI doesn't last forever and she needs to have a backup plan. Even her going to school is done halfheartedly, not even having a major after how many years of being out of high school? She knows she needs a backup plan, but doesn't really want to do it because there is no glory and adoration in going to school.

You must be a close friend or an associate of hers since you know so much about what goes on in her head.

And you know, quite a few people aged 26 are not sure what to do with their lives next. Some change careers even later than this. Except very few of them have an OSM. I think it's premature to start tearing the hair out, wailing "What WILL become of Sasha??!!!" "How WILL she manage?" :drama:

Don't see the luck in it. Spite mostly.

"Surprisingly"? Not really. She has a commentator-friendly voice, and she can speak well, so that helps in her favor.

As for Cohen, sticking to shows is a good idea. Also, if she wishes to go back to school, let her go for it. She's always struck me as a girly type so she can pursue her interests in the fashion industry, etc.

I think it would have been a bit much to skate to Dark Eyes in one of Sasha's Dark Eyes dresses.

If you think about it, it was thoughtful of Sasha to NOT give Hicks one of the Dark Eyes dresses.

Maybe I just love the Rach dress. :)

I liked all of her Rach dresses except for the one she ended the season with. :shuffle:

I never felt any of her Rach dressed fit right with the program (wasn't one of the earlier ones borrowed from Jenni Meno? You know the blue Star Trek looking one), and I didn't know what she was thinking with the majorette costume she ended up with.

A little OT, but, which Swan Lake dress did you guys prefer?

You're just miserable because Sasha once stole your boyfriend/girlfriend, then ran over your cat whilst shreiking hysterically, than she threw feces at your siblings on their birthday, and to top it all off she ruined your skating career when she exposed you for being a man and entering the ladies event at competitions. Want to know how I know this? Lucky guess. :rolleyes:

:TT1: Lake, though I like the Badgley Mischka one as well.

I know.:P But for a SashaFan I never did like many of her skating outfits. :shuffle:

As to the Swan Lake dresses, I too prefer the Badley Mischka. The black and white one reminded me of an Aerosmith album cover.

Oh, I loved the black and white Swan Lake dress!!

The purple and gold Rach dress was just meh, in my opinion. I LOVED the dark purple one she wore earlier that season - I think we only ever saw it once and I can't remember which event (nor can I find a picture of it now) , but it was pure dark purple with some sparkles along the neckline and she had her hair in a lovely braided bun. And she messed up a back sit spin at the end of the program, if that helps ID it :P
