After being the darlings of the Sochi Olympics, we wondered whether NBC would find a way to keep Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir in our lives until the next Winter Olympics in 2018. Four years is a long time to reconvene and with figure skating events happening only periodically on television, fans of Tara & Johnny's wit, wisdom, and wardrobe were left worried that they may not see the duo again for quite some time.
Alas, it has been revealed that Weir & Lipinski will be fashion analysts for Access Hollywood in the most ingenious bit of crossover television since the Flintstones met the Jetsons. This will allow Weir and Lipinski to stay in the public eye until the debut of their Bravo reality show which has to be right around the corner. (If Ryan Lochte can get one, then anything should be possible.)
While his figure skating analysis was a breath of fresh air, the real winner of NBC's coverage of the Sochi Olympics was Johnny Weir's fashion statements. In just two weeks time, he became the most notable fashionista in sports broadcasting, surpassing Don Cherry and Craig Sager. Thankfully for those of us who can use a bit more style in our lives (for bloggers that means something other than sweatpants), Weir cataloged all of his outfits on his Instagram page for all time.
