    She also is the most skilled user of makeup of anyone in skating today. She really needs a MAC endorsement, esp for her use of eyeshadow. There is a real trick to figuring out makeup that works in the rink as well as up close in TV interviews.

    That said, she definitely did go thru an ugly duckling phase. I heard stories years ago that at one point the USFS tried to convince Charlie to switch partners to a prettier girl. He wasn't having any of it.

    She also has those beautiful wide spaced eyes which many women, me included, would just kill to have.

    I would hope that this is not true, if it is that's just tacky and classless, even if she weren't beautiful.

    They both had phases. It took Charlie a while to look like Charlie again. I think he looked more like his adult self as a toddler than he did when he was a kid. He lost a little facial definition.

Think about that for a second!

    I have to confess I was thinking the same thing and not just about B/S. That's why I'm not totally sold on this team event. It'll be interesting to see if it stays in the Olympics. I read the event wasn't as well attended as I would've expected.

    The overwhelming consensus on Twitter is that Meryl is gorgeous, she's a Disney princess on ice - OR, when she isn't ice dancing, she is a Disney Princess- and there's a lot of awe over her arm muscle. A few not nice comments, but they are few and far in between.

    I think Meryl is gorgeous - BUT - I really hope she gains some weight once they're done competing. Frankly, being so very skinny makes her look a bit old. I bet she would be even prettier with a couple extra pounds.

    But that's me and my unpopular opinions. Remember I'm the one who said she should cut her hair (still think so)

    I'd like to see her put on a little weight myself. Oh, and Fedor, who could have any woman, certainly thinks she's beautiful. And he's got great taste, having previously dated the beautiful Tanith Belbin.

    Curious also... Anyone have any information about Charlie & Meryl leaving Sochi to Train. Igor is to take his couples to Moscow and Ladies are going to Austria.

    Another "love triangle" article. They had me at the Hunger Games part, lost me on the love triangle.

    This is awesome! That orange dress in the pic Visa tweeted out is one of my all time favorite Meryl dresses. She looks drop dead gorgeous in that pic!

    Oh my gosh. That is absolutely the most ridiculous headline. That's just...wow.

    I think it was kind of apt. Like Katniss, Charlie is pretending to love Peeta/Meryl when the real object of his affection Tanith/Gayle is off screen. Hopefully Tanith will not mastermind a plan to kill his little sister leaving him to end up with Meryl. That's where the analogy breaks down.

    The article makes it sound like they're trying to keep up the act off the ice. MC have made it super clear, every time they're asked, that they've never dated.
    There's no "charade" or secret relationship--Just 2 separate relationships, personal and professional.

    Lol It really does have different meanings. Up here, we use salty like this for example:

    Girl A keeps bragging to people that she's the best in soccer.

    Another team kicks her team's butt the next day ,and she got 0 points.

    Girl A now feels salty.



    ETA: Wow that's so cruel of them to say that (if it's true) to Meryl. Whoever suggested that Charlie switch partners must be feeling so salty right now!!

    Kristen Bell (from Veronica Mars) posted a cute picture that has Meryl and Charlie with Belle and the Beast

    Buzzfeed decided to change Meryl and Charlie's music to Beyonce's Drunk in Love

    This bit is

    Somehow White has turned himself in a fictional character from a YA novel.
