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.
Bonaly was a diva... I dont see Nancy as a diva, i just see her more as a bitch
Pasha is a true diva. Weir is a drama queen.
It's not really that bad though..I would be excited if I was 1st and there were 2 more skaters to go...
On a ESPN special called Road to Glory or something like that, there was a mention of her being angry and ripping up a score card or something because she didn't think she was scored ahead enough. I don't remeber the exact words they used to describe this.
On the 1994 Olympic coverage, after the Olympics aired (maybe on late night, I'm not sure) there was a fluff/documentary piece done on Sonja Henie where they spoke of her being quite difficult and having a strong personality or something like that. I have it recorded, but haven't watched it for a while (Sonja Henie didn't really interest me too much at the time). They interviewed a man who knew her and said some things about her personality and of her being a diva. If I have time, I'll watch it again and describe it with a better memory of it.*
I read some books on Henie that stated she was addicted to men and when her mother died, the first words that came out of Sonya's mouth, was "take off her rings". Then there's the whole Hitler thing. She was also addicted to fur.
I voted for Henie, too. In addition to the bio her brother wrote, I've read dozens of books on Old Hollywood and almost nobody had anything positive to say about her.

Unless you're talking about diva in a good way, I don't think Navka is one. She always seems very nice and gracious and I've never heard anything Diva-like about her. Unless you just mean the headband and lots of make-up, which I loved by the way.
I voted for Moir, but my first thought went to Skary Babs!
