    God, no. Where did you read that?

    Johnny's mother lives in Pennsylvania, and from what I've been told, has pretty much stepped out of his life.

    I'd rather be thought of as absolutely ridiculous than as absolutely boring.

    In the article, Johnny said (bold mine),

    ...It sounds sillyto cancel some big event because I have to clean my house or go grocery shopping, but if I don't do it no one else will. I don't have a lover.I don't have a mother, I don't have an assistant who does all thesethings for me, I have to do it myself."
    Now that I reread, I understand it to mean he doesn't have a mother who does all these things (um, he's an adult!), but like I said, the article is poorly written and edited.

    It seems so bizarre to me that this topic even came up in conversation the way it did. I don't know of a figure skater who has a personal assistant who grocery shops and cleans the house for them. I've read on Jeremy Abbott's twitter that he does his own laundry and does his own cleaning and I've seen video of Joannie Rochette keeping up her house, making beds, etc. The way the interview is written, Johnny comes across as if he should have an assistant to do all these things for him. With adulthood comes responsibility and independence. Every public figure cannot afford the luxury of having his/her own personal assistant. I hope it's the fault of the interviewer/publisher not editing well instead of Johnny expecting that he should have such luxury.

    That's kind of odd given how close they happened to be in past.

    Ah, now I see. Thanks for pointing out. I agree btw that the wording is awful in the article.

    Johnny hunny, if it makes you feel any better I don't have a personal assistant, either. And I have to do my own laundry, too. And buy my own groceries, I don't even use Peapod or anything like that. And when I was in TJ Maxx on Valley Brook Ave last week after going to the dentist, I had to carry my own bag out to my car. But look on the bright side, kid. You don't have to pump your own gas.

    What's so odd? He's what 24, 25 years old? It's high time he took responsibility for his own life. I'd say is about time - past time actually - for Mama to take several steps back. Doesn't mean she doesn't care about him or talk to him.

    Patti was in LA with him. It seems nothing has changed in their relationship and they are as close as they were.

    Please, we all know she disowned him because he's an overweight and desperate attention whore and who can't skate and wears tacky clothes. It's also probably Tara's fault. She's unprofessional, I heard. Haven't you been following this thread? Get with the program!

    That's pretty much his only hope at this point...

    You made it sound like Patti doesn't want to have anything to do with Johnny anymore. It's common knowledge that he moved away from his parents and he's living alone. Sorry if I misinterpreted your words.

    Only in a Johnny thread could a statement about sometimes having to skip a big event to take care of the mundane everyday chores because if you don't do it no one else will, be construed as him thinking he's such a big deal he should have a personal assistant and that he and his mom are estranged. lol

    Actually Johnny's mom, dad and brother still live in Delaware. Patti tweeted some time ago that she wanted to move back to Pennsylvania after they sold their house but we all know how the real estate market is.

    Thank you for the correction. I understood that the family had already returned to PA.

    I'd honestly say probably not because his show is on cable and Evan was on ABC. I'm sure most people need to hear "figure skater" before either though.
