WTMW and WOW!!!

OK, first some highlights from Tuesday's WTMW book signing in Clifton, New Jersey:

Johnny's ready to sign some books, bitches! Thanks to Lisa Basile Lawless for posting the photo on Johnny's Facebook fan page. The fabulous Coco Chanel cuff he's wearing is available from Lisa's sister, Wendy Basile, owner of Decotrashland--check them out on Facebook. Company slogan: "Recycled vinyl records magically made into arm candy!" Love it.



Ready for their close-up in Clifton are KarenW, KarenB, Agentress Tara, Beth, Jenn (Oh She of the Magic Gif Skillz), and Natalie!



Meeting Johnny for the first time at the Clifton book signing were very happy fans Annie, center, who has been fighting cancer, and her wife, Kathy. Together for 26 years, the couple married in 2008 in Massachusetts and reside in New York. They're hoping to come see Johnny perform at Skate for Hope this June!

And now, the WOW!!!! From the official press release posted officially on Johnny's official website:

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ Milojo Productions is partnering with Charlie Corwin’s Original Media to produce the second season of the hit docu-series Be Good Johnny Weir, scheduled to air later this year on Logo Television. In addition, Milojo and Original Media, along with Weir’s Fireworks Sports Marketing, will spearhead the development and production of his upcoming stage show “Spectacular,” a theatrical ice skating performance. The announcement was made jointly by Original Media and Milojo Productions.

WOW!!!!!

And also:

The second season of Be Good Johnny Weir will be executive produced by Corwin and Peterson for Original Media, Ripa, Consuelos and Albert Bianchini for Milojo and David Barba and James Pellerito for Retribution Media.

YAY!!!

There's more stuff about some other stuff on the release so you can go read the rest of the stuff but I'm stuck on the WOW parts!!! As in WOW there's really going to be a Spectacular (Sweet Weirsus please let it be somewhere that lots and lots of fans can get to at some point when most of us can go I don't evan know what that means but please) and WOW that is so cool of Mark and Kelly (who is such a fangurl of Johnny's and also a wise businesswoman OBVIOUSLY) and WOW this is just really great news for Johnny!!

Note: And can I just take a moment to applaud again the genius of David and James--our beloved Butch and Grämz--for seeing what a story there was to be told in Johnny Weir, and for their determination and brilliance in pursuing their vision and bringing it to the screen. We love you so hard.

So I'm just going to roll around in this announcement for a while with "Dirty Love" rattling the windows in the background, and then go follow Milojo Productions and Original Media on Facebook.

And then sit around being thrilled for my favorite fierce pirate ninja skater singer author guy for the rest of the year. ♥

This. Thanks to their foresight and gut instinct. Now it´s been rewarded as it should be
for all of their team including that guy...you know..."my favorite fierce pirate ninja skater singer author guy ". Congrat to all of them.

Fabulous pictures from Clifton as well. Love them.

!!!!!!!!!IT'S ALL HAPPENING!!!!!!!!

Look at those gorgeous Glamazons...and Annie & Karen!! Love them all...such supportive fans; of Johnny and of each other....Can't you just feel the excitement and energy that radiates from and around Johnny at any event he's at?
So happy for all the folks that got their books signed, their photos taken and their eyes glazed over with loveliness.

I am so excited for his "Spectacular"! I mean SO EXCITED!
If Johnny's able to keep it true to HIS vision and imagination...man...I think we're all in for a hell of a show!

Thanks for another great post, Binky!

Thank you for those amazing pictures! There's a powerful aura radiating from our beloved snowshoe kitten Glamazons. It's a combination of beauty, vitality, fierceness, and basking in Johnny love.

So happy hearing about the Spectacular that's coming together. It will be epic. And yes, Butch and Grämz are visionaries, like Johnny (and Misfit Mimes, too). It will also be a wild ride.

Johnny was all excited telling me about Lady Gaga's show the other night, how it was being taped, and she & her show were all "!".

I couldn't help thinking that with his vision & enthusiasm, that Johnny's Ice Spectacular will be all "!" too!

I saw some people talking about the Spectacular but I hadn't seen anything about it until I saw this! Yay! I'd love to go, of course depending on where it's held and whether I have any money... Sigh! I just can't wait to see how it all works out, but so glad to hear it actually is going to come off! Waahoo!

And I agree, can't say enough about David and James, aka Butch and Grämz!

Thanks for all the photos of our lovely lady friends, and thanks once again MM for a wonderful Blog!
