Big News!

Yes, it's big news:
Johnny Confirms a Second Season of BGJW!
(Also: Evan Needs Geography and Music Lessons)

So a bunch of us JWe fans were hanging out on his Facebook page Friday night because we have no lives since we willingly gave them up when this damn prancing ice god skated into them and now he's got bows in his hair for chrissakes so we are even more completely under his spell, and then this little tidbit of an interview popped up, thanks to alert fan Jen Cheng.

At the very end, the vodka-shot-and-a-snort-of-coke-kind-of-interviewer asks Johnny, "One more question for you, with your reality show--are you going to have another one at some point?"

And Johnny smiles, "I have a big finale on June 27 on the Sundance Channel." And then he blurts casually, almost as an afterthought: "And then we're going to do a second season."

Interviewer (who could not talk any faster but somehow manages to anyway): "Secondseason'spicked up?Wonderful!"

Johnny: "Pretty much, yes."

Interviewer (now clearly in maximum words per millisecond overdrive): "Good!Youguyshearthat?Secondseason'spickedupforJohnnyWeir'sshow!"

The guy was so excited to get this scoop he even put it in the info box under the YouTube clip: "Johnny Weir Judge of the miss usa 2010 pageant, red carpet interview. exclusive news his show has been picked up for a second season." And he might have peed a little too.

So it took all of about ten seconds from the time Jen put up the link to Lily Doheny posting "JOHNNY CONFIRMS SECOND SEASON OF BGJW!" to the whole page exploding with glitter.

Of course we all conveniently ignored the "pretty much, yes" part of the interview. Don't interrupt me with caveats and caution when I'm fantasizing about more Johnny and more completely inappropriate quotes and please God more Viacheslav Romanov because I really miss that boy and more snuffles and more EVERYTHING on my TiVo.

So that was BIG news. And I was so overcome with shaking and crying, as they would say on ontd, plus the intensity of conversing in ten Facebook chat windows at once--chat slore that I am--that I almost missed the other exciting headline of the night. Which comes to us courtesy of Larry King, who had the dubious honor of interviewing the DWTS finalists on his show last night.

WARNING: Sharp Evan disses immediately ahead. Sorry. It can't be helped.

From the transcript:

KING: What are you going to do [in the final]?

LYSACEK: We're doing the Viennese Waltz again, which was our first dance in the competition. We'll get a chance to raise our score.

TREBUNSKAYA: That's right.

LYSACEK: I get Viennese and Vietnamese confused, the Waltzes.

Oh, honey, so do I. I can't even count the number of times I've seen Vietnamese people waltzing to "Waves of the Danube." And of course Vietnam natives look so much like people from Vienna, and those two countries have such a long and rich history of shared culture, being practically next-door neighbors. Certainly their cuisines are nearly indisinguishable. No wonder it's confusing to you. I bet you get "vapid" and "rapid" mixed up a lot too.

Speaking of vapid, here's a thought: I would love to see Evan dating Brittany, the Cheerio on Glee who is sure her cat has been reading her diary and that dolphins are just gay sharks. Let's imagine those conversations:

Evan: See, figure skating is really just all about the math. You do the right moves at the right times and then they add up your points and you win.

Brittany: The square root of four is rainbows.

Evan: "Over the Rainbow" is the kind of ballad that would be ideal for the Vietnamese waltz.

Brittany: Why would you want to dance to a male duck?

Really, they ought to be starring in their own reality spin-off, Project Clueless. Or, So You Think You Can Think?

And while we relish the exceptionally vapid beauty and symmetrical nonsequitur-ness of the pairing of Evan and Brittany, which quite possibly might cause the head of Glenn Beck, King of the Non Sequitur, to explode, I leave you with something even more beautiful: A .gif I made all by myself from the tail end of the Johnny interview, to tide us over until we get more new BGJW. It's the perfect .gif at which you can gaze idly and fixedly throughout the rest of this weekend--especially if you took all your antibiotics at once and now can't remember how to leave the room...

PLEASE VOTE HERE for Johnny to win

All I wanna say is: YEAAAAAAAAAH second season is gonna rock :D Johnny is gonna be beyond amazing! ♥

Oh Evan... As he's Gemini too (I'm born on June the 2nd, he's from June the 4th), I'm going to be compassionate and send him an Atlas. Is he sibling with Justin Bieber who doesn't know what Germany is?...

Binky, Binky...I´m rolling on the floor laughing tears. Has Evan actually said that? *more rolling on the floor* Your "response is priceless.

Thanks for making me laugh again...apart from the good news on the Johnny frontier.

Have a great weekend with even greater dreams of Johnny being gorgeous.

Oh yayayayayaya! I just barely caught the video clip of the interview last night before I went to bed! I'm sooooo stoked! Another season! I'm a little bummed I missed the glitter parade last night on the page though.
As far as Evan and Brittany? Now that is just brilliant! Perhaps Binky, you should be pestering Ryan Kelly or whatever the name is of the GLEE producer for a little writing gig? "Why would you want to dance to a male duck?" oh you kill me!
LOVE IT, and thanks for giving me a laugh this morning on an otherwise bleak day!

Li Mann said... always Binky! Well done on the pic too! I don't think the Vietnamese do pastries like the Viennese do either...another minor distinction noticed by pastry chefs everywhere to be sure.

Evan's one-track mind is picking up lint. Perhaps the shock waves of some of his falls on the ice (or Anna's flip) has harmed his brain. The bigger the man, the bigger the fall. Remember Muhammad Ali, who took too many punches to his formerly vibrant brain that used to rap in brilliant rhymes? Repeat damage led to his early diagnosis of Parkinson's.

LOL Evan is just showing who he really is.
No brains. Just ability to have someone count points for him. after all robots don't have brains.
LOVE that Johnny will be back for another season on Sundance. Now if he only competes I will be so satisfied. After all his BBag did tell me he would get lots of medals to put in the bag :))))

PumaJ said...

Well, I think it would be very safe to say that Evan's Gold Medal had nothing whatsoever to do with intelligence, as evidenced the twisted brain wire connection causing him to confuse Vietnam and Vienna.

Though, I have to say that in this comment, he may not be that far off regarding gaining points in Oly skates: "See, figure skating is really just all about the math. You do the right moves at the right times and then they add up your points and you win"

MM, your comedy rocks my day! :-)

damn prancing ice god

OMG! Stop, I'm supposed to be keeping score of a baseball game! LOL!

Seriously, every time I see something that makes me feel a bit kindly toward Evan (I don't diss him the way a lot of people do.), he says something snarky or just plain dumb that makes it hard for me to sympathize with him.

I really hope we are right about there being a second season of BGJW. He sure hasn't made much of an effort to announce it officially to his fans.

OMG I DIE!...of laughter. I will say it. Evan is stupid.

One of you best blog posts ever!

You made me laugh so hard I woke myself up from being half asleep so now I get to watch more Johnny videos til I get sleepy again. So, thank you. :)
