Celebrity News: ‘Flamboyant’ Skater Johnny Weir Divorces His Gay Husband

Posted on | March 20, 2014 | 28 Comments

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.

Also, Kim Kardashian got into some drama with her ex, Charlize Theron in a bikini, and Mick Jagger’s dead girlfriend.

Meh. It’s only slightly less boring than politics.

    Ach, another ruin. Lock him in a child-free apartment with Amanda Marcotte.

  • kbiel

    It sounded to me like Weir just said the men wear the pants in heterosexual relationships. Do we get to denounce him or does gay trump lady parts?

    Another one bites the dust…

    Someone really should produce a hierarchy of conflicting liberal themes so that we can easily work out which take precedence over others. It would also be entertaining trying to force a liberal to prioritise their conflicting realities.

    In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

    Or the pillow.

    Okay. I denounce myself for that.

    Point of order: men can’t have husbands.

    Don’t care what the law says. The law doesn’t get to tell us what to think.

  • Quartermaster

    That’s the Spirit!

    I think the story meant to say something like…

    “After a domestic violence incident involving biting, a mincing sissy sodomizing another (potentially) mincing sissy have decided not to continue to live together anymore. They will probably continue to sodomize one another.”

  • RichFader

    Flamboyant? Dude was wearing more makeup than the reporterette he was working with in Sochi. Johnny Weir makes flamboyant look like Sam Elliott.

  • GVK

    There once lived Bob who’s hard to comply

    When his girlfriend enticed him with chai
    He took a big sip
    And then bit his lip

    Cause his girlfriend was really a guy

    Let’s face it: the facts make you cry.

    Well, that’s part of the problem. We couldn’t discriminate against homosexuals in ordinary life if we didn’t know that they were homosexual; normalcy is the default assumption.

    The problem comes with people like Mr Weir, who decide to dress and behave just like the old stereotype, who make their homosexuality obvious to everyone. If what people do in their own bedrooms is none of my business, why do so many of them insist on telling me what they do in their bedrooms?

    Now, if I run a business in which I have people who normally deal with the public, why would I ever hire a man person whose appearance will offend some potential customers? It’s really no different from choosing not to hire a person whose breath stinks or who is visibly dirty.

    If what people do in their own bedrooms is none of my business, why do
    so many of them insist on telling me what they do in their bedrooms?

    le vice anglais has many correlates, including pederasty, exhibitionism, narcissism, and an overweening desire to act like a teenaged girl. That sort of mess is what gets them out of bed in the morning.

    News you can use!

    Man its almost like its unnatural or something. Next you’ll tell me they can’t even make children.

  • JeffS

    Finally! Good news!

    we can easily work out which take precedence over others.

    Obviously you’re a entitled person of Privilege to say such things.

    The sooner you accept this is all your fault personally and collectively, the sooner we can fix human nature.

  • Zohydro

    “Le vice anglais”?

  • Anamika

    le vice anglais:

    French phrase meaning ‘the English vice’. It sometimes refers to sadomasochism (= gaining sexual pleasure by beating or whipping people), thought to be characteristic of the English, but is often used to mean any typically English fault or weakness.

    Apparently.

    Our esteemed host entitled this thread:

    Celebrity News: ‘Flamboyant’ Skater Johnny Weir Divorces Breaks Up With His Gay Homosexual Husband Boyfriend

    FTFY; men cannot have husbands; they can only have wives. It does not matter what homosexuals say their relationships are, only heterosexual couples can legitimately be married, and we ought not to surrender control of the language to homosexual activists.

    Flippin’ pommies… Poofters, all of them!
