Whenever I get bored with politics, there’s always the celebrity tabloid headlines at WeSmirch. Of course, most of these “celebrities” nowadays are reality-TV personalities you never heard of, and the stories are mostly exercises in trivial silliness.
Radar Online uses the stereotypical adjective “flamboyant” to describe former Olympic skater (and NBC Sports commentator) Johnny Weir, 29, who announced a divorce from Victor Voronov. Evidently, there were domestic violence issues in their relationship, including an incident when Voronov accused Weir of biting him:
About a month before the games in Russia, Weir’s husband filed a police report in which he alleged the three-time U.S. national champion of biting him.
Despite the allegations, the couple had appeared to have worked out their differences when they appeared in a Lyndhurst, New Jersey, courtroom, requesting a judge dismiss the case.
>Weir married Voronov in December 2011 and recently spoke about their dynamic relationship.
“A marriage between two guys is different than what I imagine a marriage between a man and a woman [to be],” he told Access Hollywood in February. “I mean, we’re both constantly trying to fight to wear the pants in the relationship.
“It’s constant fireworks,” Weir added. “It’s very boom, boom, boom.”
Uh, yeah. But if I said that — obviously, gay marriage is different — they’d call me a homophobic bigot. And “flamboyant”? Why don’t you just call him a mincing sissy and get it over with, Radar?
In other urgent celebrity news, Lindsay Lohan fired her $1,500-a-day “sobriety coach” as soon as she finished shooting her reality show for Opray Winfrey’s network, so expect her to start racking up DUI arrests and a trip back to rehab in the near future.
Meh. It’s only slightly less boring than politics.
