    Good for Nicole. Says that she is "working for a show in April." Probably a local spring show where she lives (Florida? New Jersey? ... forget where). Step by step. Maybe, in time, she'll work her way up to the Disson shows? I really wish her the best.

    "Finished the hours" most likely means that she finished the mandated community-service hours portion of her sentence. She's on probation for five years but the community-hrs portion is over.

    Nicole is scheduled to appear April 16, 2011 in Skate for Love, a Susan G. Komen fundraiser for breast cancer. The show is in Morris County, New Jersey.

    I'm glad for her, loved her skating and her graciousness to her fans over the years. That was really nice.

    :scream: I'd rather watch Tonya Harding chew with her mouth open in the Burbank Airport.

    Why. Seriously...why. You take a person filled with joy after overcoming drug addiction and turn it into snark. :blah:

    I'm so glad Nicole is getting her life back on track. I still think she has the best spirals ever.

    She looks great.

    You can go ahead and celebrate the conspirator to distribute meth as part of a drug ring because she is no longer on meth, herself, and that she skates pretty again if you like, but that is not all the damage she caused and I could not watch her again knowing that.

    I'm not advocating her drug use and her selling of drugs in any way. In fact, I think she is very, very lucky not to be in prison. But Nicole was given a gift, a second chance at life, and I am extremely glad to see she is putting it to good use.

    Exactly. She could be on skating message boards waspishly bitching about reformed skaters actually using their talent, but she isn't. ;)

    Hehehe, good (no, great) one! ;) We can only hope that some very judgmental people don't live in glass houses I guess. :rolleyes::shuffle:

    As happy as I am to see her skate again, I'm even happier to see the sheer joy in her smile.

    Thanks for posting the clip of Nicole skating to Adele. Great choice of music for her. Just validates my opinion that Nicole has always been one of the most musical skaters out there. And she looks like she is really enjoying herself.

    I always loved her basic skills, her posture, leg line and stroking. Strong AND graceful, IMO.

    WB Nicole.

    Considering jumps weren't her biggest thing, I was very impressed with what she did jumping-wise after all her troubles and time off-ice. And of course the spins and spirals are impressive as ever. I hope she stays clean, she seems like such a nice person.

    I hope she has the drug thing beat for good. I like a good success story. Good for her.

    Nicole will always be a dear favorite of mine, the 1st skater I ever felt a close connection with, and in all honesty, the 1st skater who truly made me fall in love with the sport. I am so impressed with how far she has come and with how hard she is working on her comeback trail and I am so thrilled that she is believing in herself and loving herself. <3 you Nicole! :swoon::encore:

    she has made great progress in the last six months, if you check out some of the other video's you can see how she appears more toned, faster and with more flow in her jumps, her spiral has always been one of the best.. so glad she has found her passion again and is sharing it :)
