She's gone through some difficult times in the past few years, but she's coming back around.

Mom had cancer. Dad had alzheimer's. Tough times few of us could fathom. Top it off, she is a public figure who still has that Olympic Silver somewhere at home, and has to pretty well always keep up that cute smile in public. Glad she is rebounding, and I hope her a peaceful future with hubby.

Having left the professional show circuit four years ago, Manley-Theobald has been asked to skate in a major show in Atlantic City on Dec. 3.

Billed as The Legends of Women’s Skating, the event is to be turned into a two-hour special to be shown on NBC on New Year’s Day.

Ooh, sounds likes a great fun event! I wonder who else will be there!

Good for her for finding her footing. She brought such joy every single time she touched the ice.

I think that's the event that will be the follow-up to last year's "Legends" show.
Jerry Solomon was kind enough to give me a "head's up" about it when I thanked him for posting the programs omitted from the broadcast version, on YouTube.
