    My very beloved Tatiana Navka! I think she was a diva in a positive way.

    Witt, definitely. It's just not an act for her, it's so natural for her. Both on and off the ice and still. And I say this in a good way. Her divaism is so exciting that it has brought the sport so much attention.

    Going through the choices:

    How was Kerrigan a diva?
    Scott... lol he's too masculine
    Pasha - omg she was too much... and in a bad way
    I don't see how Yuna was a diva
    Johnny Weir - I can see that. He's also Gossip Girl
    Plush complained about Vancouver, but I don't see Diva with him
    Witt - she was before my time so I didn't really notice any drama about her
    Navka - lotsa drama but only with the headband that can cure blindness and turn lead to gold
    Henie - WAY WAY WAY before my time
    Tonya - She was before my time and the only thing I know that she did was the Kerrigan incident. Not very diva like.
    Patrick - In order to be a diva, you need people to actually care about what you're saying...
    Surya - Love me some medal removal. Reminds me of Russia at the Sydney Olympics after winning the team silver.

    I'd also nominate Krylova and Fusar-Poli

    The medal ceremony in Lillehammer started lated because they couldn't find a Ukranian flag [actually the article below says it was the anthem], but Nancy thought it was because Oksana was re-applying her makeup, and snarked in front of the cameras "but she's just going to cry again!" Here is an article http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-sr...998/history/timeline/articles/time_030494.htm

    I always had the belief that Nancy Kerrigan was a bit of a....witch. The medal ceremony is one example, and there was her behavior at Disney World I believe...anyone remember that? Didn't she sort of snake her current husband away from his previous wife? I'm not accusing her of all this-just remember hearing it. If it isn't true, let's set the record straight. If true....well then, I still don't consider her being a diva. Just maybe indulging in poor behavior at times (as we all do...right?)

    I voted for Johnny Weir but now I think Pasha should win. But Johnny IS a diva!

    Kerrigan's behavior at some of the pro comps after that was even worse. I'll always remember the one event where she showed up out of shape and skated terribly and told the interviewer afterward that it didn't matter how she skated becuase they were all being paid the same amount of money no matter how they placed. :lol:

    I fell in love with Scott Hamilton for about 5 seconds when he said that it matters to the fans paying money, and that if that was her attitude then don't bother coming next time. :kickass:

    Nancy was a diva, just not a fun one.


    Oh, and I voted for Moir, even though Pasha is of course the obvious choice. :D

    Nancy Kerrigan at 93 worlds skated poorly and said I want to die in the kiss and cry.

    I voted for Sonja tho because of all the lavish Hollywood parties equipped with ice swans in the swimming pool, the jewelry obsession, I could go on and on. She was actually worse than Weir, or she could afford to be worse anyway.

    Even in Germany, I bet Sonja would have put Katarina in her place . . .

    From the things I've heard about her, I'd have to say Sonja Henie. There are a lot of worthy choices on the poll though!

    As much as it's a "bad attitude" i kind of love Wagners reactions to her competitors skates.

    As far as I'm concerned, the #1 diva in skating will always be Sonja Henie.

    Pasha is a diva with huge accomplishments to back it up, Weir is one without real accomplisments. I voted for Weir.

    i agree. i just wish johnny would back up his diva-ness with big accomplishments. at least, when some casual figureskating fans would look at men's skating and see weir, they can understand or accept his flamboyance more, and not just because he's gay.

    Any videos of Wagner's reactions? I don't really watch much of her, so I never really saw her act like a diva.

    It's not a bad attitude, she's just really confident and has the bitchface down pat. Plus her being a hot california girl makes her whole "diva" image come off that much more convincingly.
