Aunt Joyce interviewed Tara yesterday.

A refreshing interview. I loved that many of the questions were not the typical safe stuff you've heard asked a million times already, and Tara seemed quite open to answer them honestly.

I like this part:

AJ: You were known for wanting to win, but there is an interview of you saying that you ‘just wanted to be fifth or sixth’ at ’97 Worlds. Did you have media training to learn how to say that?

TL: Oh, I was totally lying!

Here is part 2:

Someone had told me that my Little Women dress made me look fat

Back when Dave Lease posted on GGMB, he posted "interviews" that were not really interviews. I'd wait a bit before believing these words are Tara's.

Seriously. That had to come from one of the most absurd advocates of eating disorders.

Yeah, I'm not sure sure that the actual word "fat" was actually used back then toward the 13 years old Tara. I'm sure there were suggestions back then that maybe the dress didn't flatter her, and perhaps the Lapinksi interpreted it as fat.

That is unfounded, and these are Lipinski's responses from a phone interview conducted yesterday. If you want to discredit someone, then you can start with me.

Furthermore, Lipinski is not shy about having her lawyers request inaccurate statements be taken down from websites. She has done so in the past. I assure you this interview was legitimate and the fact that it will not be removed will lend more than enough support to its validity.

Tara is a breath of fresh air.

It seems clear from the interactions between Aunt Joyce and Tara Lipinski on Twitter, that he did in fact schedule and conduct an interview with her.

TL: I haven’t really tried triples since I’ve been back. Actually, scratch that! I did a triple toe after I got back from the tribute show in December. I’m not letting that get away! I did do one.

:lol: Once a Tara always a Tara :P

There was some good info not in Edge of Glory. I am sure that was what the book referred to. And she talked about Kwan having a flutz. There was a real "No she didn't!" about that in that book and reports and articles at the time.

I do hear her in her commentary talking about why Miki Ando for example was not doing her hardest jumps against Kim and thought maybe there could have been more about that.

I love her regret over not having a Lalique crystal trophy for her house. :lol:

"I hate Lalique"
