Having gotten the messy little business of falling from 2nd to 5th place in the finals of figure skating, American Johnny Weir is getting down to the main point of his trip to Torino - the shopping! Washington Post Libby Copeland trotted around the piazzas with Weir, a seasoned shopper who's spending sprees Copeland calls "reckless and freeing, like shooting tequila in the morning." Libby Copeland sounds fun.
So far Weir has accumulated "five pairs of shoes, a pair of rabbit fur hand warmers, a Dolce & Gabbana hoodie he says reads "Sex trainer: Best to practice seven days a week," and a sable scarf that was supposed to be $715 but was instead $415 because he spoke French with the saleslady." Happily he doesn't need to leave any room in his luggage for medals.
Weir also reveals his favorite piece of clothing (a beaver and python jacket), his current reading material (Nicole Richie's novel) and that he believes he was a Polish Jewish girl during the holocaust in a past life. Interestingly, Charles Oakley shares all three of those things with Johnny Weir.
