In their many book promotion interviews from late 2010, Scott and Tessa dramatically describe how they never saw each other, spoke, phoned, texted, im'd, pm'd or communicated in any way during the two months she was recovering from compartment surgery on her legs. This unprecedented cut-off in any and all contact precipitated a painful year long estrangement.
Here, in the video above, they are one month after her surgery conducting an interview and declaring the hope for her return by the end of the month (November). She was, in fact, back in early December. Perhaps this tragic delay wiped from their minds that they were in each other's company at Skate America here, in 2008, during her recovery, discussing their withdrawal from Skate Canada and chatting with Kurt Browning.
Their discussion in this interview of their expectations for her post-recovery return turned out to be on the money; their season resumed just about exactly as forecast here. Yet today, Scott and Tessa both get actually teary when they stress how absolutely literally they were cut-off during those two months.
Scott and Tessa tell us now this interview was not possible. Did CBC fake it? Is it a moon landing situation?
