|My beloved Tracy Wilson "interviews" Virtue Moir in Nice, FRANCE|
Still, this part of the interview:
Tracy: Help me understand your relationship here. Best friends, brother sister?It's so so SO hard to understand. No wonder they heh heh and fidget. They know we couldn't comprehend. That unique-itude* is a giant umbrella explaining all the equivocation. How could we ever understand? It can't be described in plain language!
Scott <heh heh> I don't think you can compare it really. It's a very unique relationship; we've really kind of grown into what is a great partnership, also a great friendship. The further our career goes on, the better it gets. Hopefully we can just keep that going for the next two years and enjoy it.
"Married? I don't get it! You didn't explain good!"
"You're married AND skate together? Brain no process!"
"You grew up together and were in love from the first and never stopped, been planning your lives together since forever? Unprecedented! Wait, let me go re-read My Sergei!"
"Wow, married and skate together! And parents? At your young ages right in the middle of your career? And prior to that - in love and committed and skating together! Wait - LIVE together and skate together BEFORE that? OMG! You know what this means? We're entitled to know every single intimate detail about when your relationship progressed from baby sweethearts to man/woman, how you could make such a commitment to each other so young, what did your parents think? We're entitled to demand you justify everything repeatedly and share your plans so we can analyze them. If you don't, we'll kidnap your baby!"
"If we knew the truth we'd have opinions. OMG. Fans talking out their ass about you. What skater could handle that?"
What choice do Tessa and Scott have but: "Accio - bubble!"
Still, they have explained in the past, and a lot of people did feel that what they made up was hard to comprehend, actually, no matter how many explanations were on offer. A relationship that they explained like this: (paraphrasing, but on point):
She's like my younger, more mature sister.(His girlfriend better understand, because of : "Tessa and I are not a couple - not yet anyway." "I've been trying to pitch that for 12 years and this is the first maybe. Progress!" "I'm trying!" And Tessa saying she likes to hold hands with him in Paris. (Or was that last part just so 2009, before 2010 and they cooked up rift and springing apart like a couple of magnets the second they exited the ice?))
It's not like brother and sister, and it's not like a marriage.
Anyone I'd be with would have to love Tessa as much as I do or it wouldn't work.
My girlfriend's in the sport, she understands.
She's in the same situation, she has a partner.
It doesn't annoy me. It might annoy my girlfriend.
She's (Tessa's) my best friend and I tell her absolutely everything.
When you're that pretty...
We were just excited to hold each other's hands. That's still true.
I'm going to be opaque about anything to do with Tessa and me but I'll throw "Jtaime's" on Jessica Dube's wall in front of thousands of strangers. But on my facebook - even my fan page facebook - I won't share with fans a single candid photo of Tessa and me at a competition, in Canton, or in London, or from the Ilderton Gold Medal Celebration, or from the Olympics, or Worlds or the Grand Prix, or from various figure skater weddings, nor from a plane, backstage, a car, a photo shoot, a sightseeing outing, a training session with one of our interesting outside experts, a meal or a show.** Despite the fact that the hundreds I'm sweeping in as my facebook friends weekly are fans. But when the spotlight is strongest on me and my business partner, Tessa, I will help spam the internet with photos from my intimate life with Jessica Dube, in and around figure skating competitions and publicized summer training breaks and family and friends will act like carnival barkers making sure you don't miss it.
And just to keep you on your toes, in record time I'm going to spoil Jessica's coy party when she posts "on the kitchen counter, on the hallway floor, on the floor by the sofa" but I'll have no problems posing for photos like this for the edification of thousands on my facebook and Jessica's:
|She loves Tessa as much as he does.|
If you and Tessa had been honest everybody would have been over it by now. As you have likely not noticed, people are more apt to gossip on message boards about stuff they make up than stuff that's true. True stuff, they hesitate, lest the truth end up showing up their ass.Worlds showed this again, as one lucky fan reports seeing not just one, but two rumored couples kissing, holding hands and gazing at each other in front of God and everyone. No one I know who attends international figure skating competitions ever gets so fortunate as to have two gossiped-about-on-message-boards couples behave as if they're unaware they're in a fan mecca. Couples who conveniently demonstrate confirmation of their non-platonic relationship by lip kissing and holding hands. And here, at one Worlds, we have one fan who managed to see this behavior by the two highest profile rumored new couples in skating. My, some folks are lucky. You'd think such luck would put people in a good mood but it's funny how touchy these fans get when asked "Tell me more!" (Was not me, but I read the boards.)
The truth isn't hard to understand, Scott, Tessa, Tracy. The lies have been.***
*Not just unique but "very" unique.
**Cause he's private. That sort of stuff is only for the eyes of book purchasers and sponsors interested in Ice Sweat and Tears. It's not for a free fan page on facebook.
*** Wouldn't it be interesting if the lies had nothing to do with privacy and everything to do with the money from a "Now it Can Be Told" and a post-eligible career sale of photos held back for ten years? That fans were made fools of left and right, mocked and set up, flipped off and baited so that these two could market a dramatic - and profitable - reversal? It's to wonder because they're so cagey and private - except when they're suddenly not. What's the reason they're suddenly not, when they're not? $$$.
