I couldn't help but stalk Alex's new girlfriend and came across this improv piece she did coincidentally set the The Leftovers soundtrack that Alex mixed in the second half with Truman Sleeps from their 2016-2017 FD:

I love seeing some Broadway people I follow commenting on her post about the relationship. I feel like my worlds are colliding. One guy said he Googled Alex and concluded that he was "worthy". I thought it was sweet but the Asian auntie part of me who has been protective over the Shibs since 2009 Junior Worlds was like "Of course Alex is worthy!"

VIETgrlTerifa, speaking of COMMENTS sections, the almost 600 comments under Alex's post introducing the twitterverse to his girlfriend reads like the screenplay from the Crazy Rich Asians movie :rofl:

Serious crisis moments for some fans who seem to bond in empathy as their fantasies burst at the same time, world wide.

I know :lol:. It was a collective meltdown, some serious and some a bit tongue-in-cheek with funny comments in-between.

Alex Shibutani and Sabrina Imamura make the cutest couple while stepping out at Figure Skating in Harlem’s 2019 Champions in Life Benefit Gala in New York City on Monday night (April 29).

The adorable duo were joined by his sister and skating partner, Maia Shibutani, plus Meryl Davis, Sasha Cohen, Charlie White and his wife Tanith White.

Congrats to the happy couple. As many commenters exclaimed, I Ship! :saint:

Sabrina with her family at Christmas -- quite sassy & elegant: https://www.instagram.com/p/Br0Y0JdBAhu/

Sabrina with Raymond Baynard -- a former Hamilton castmate:

I'm guessing Sabrina's Mom is a former ballerina:

Sabrina's Mom is apparently a designer, but perhaps also a former dancer:

Now that some clips of their new Coldplay exhibition has been posted on YouTube, I couldn't help but wonder if those two music choices would have been better than "Paradise" for their Olympic programs. Obviously "Paradise" worked out just fine given how successful they were with it, but I couldn't help but wonder.

Something to think about, but then again maybe they are saving this new Coldplay program for their FS for their comeback.;)

They look fabulous!

I really hope not. If they do another Coldplay competitive program, the comments just won't stop.

Stop being a tease, @Sylvia! They were completely noncommittal except to say they have no plans for the summer because that's usually their training time. BUT they talked about spending more time in Japan and didn't mention Marina or FL so.... 🤷🏻‍♀️

Yes, as I expected, the Shibs were noncommittal on the "coming back" question. I still wanted to ask anyway, just in case. :D I thought their shout-out to their fan community was nice. :)

It seems they won’t be coming back this season. I think if they were they’d be in total training mode by now. It seems the best we can hope for is a Tessa/Scott where they come back the season prior to the Olympic one.

Thank you for the interview @clairecloutier! It was an amazing read and you asked some great questions.

Thanks @VIETgrlTerifa. I would've loved to ask more questions, but these Stars on Ice interviews are short. You only get about 15 minutes with the skaters.

There's no going back, only forward. I think the Shibs understand that and thrive from that knowledge. :)
