    Nice for the Today Show to show more skating with current skaters, especially Javi. I remember when he was wide eyed young kid in New Jersey a few years back. FSH is a great cause!

    I was just in the City and would have loved to go to the event, but man...it's expensive.

    Spotted in the crowd socializing: Tracy Wilson and Sandra Bezic. Bezic, in person, looks like a million bucks. Hair highlight of the night was Johnny's pompadour; when I complimented him on it, he leaned over so I could pat it. My brush with greatness, LOL.

    If you just got your tax return, or won the lottery, you can participate in the online auction. Lot 343310: Special Opportunity to Meet President Bill Clinton. Estimated value: $20,000. Lot 343309: Meet Brian Boitano at a Private Training Session in San Francisco. Estimated value: $1,000. Lot 343300 Luxury Suite for 22 People for a 2013 Mets Homegame at CitiField. Estimated value: $10,000. And so on and so on.

    I was at the event and, as always, it was terrific. Beautiful night....great organization. The skaters were lovely to all of the young children/ladies, etc.

    Man, Tara doesn't age at all. Evan's so hot. Weir's outfit and hair ... um, I'll keep my mouth shut, LOL.

    I think Tamara Tunie is ageless. So glad to see her continued support of FSIH.

    To this old lady too; Adam Rippon kindly held a door open for me and didn't let it slam in my face.

    She walked right past me and looked FAB.

    Have to say that I was the MOST star struck when Andrea Joyce, Tracy Wilson and Sandra Bezic were standing together in front of me chatting away.

    I see Johnny brought along his pet rat and glued it to his head so it wouldn't run away. . . :shuffle:

    Tara Lipinski looked amazing as always, as did Sasha. However, both Hughes sisters could use a stylist. I realize Emily's style is very simple, but where did Sarah get the idea that her jacket and dress worked together? I swear she has the worse taste in clothes; she tends to look like she's wearing badly fitted prom dresses at gala events.
