A lot has changed in Johnny Weir's life since he taped the second season of his reality show for Logo. He's returned to competitive skating and strictly monitoring his diet. He's also now a happily married man and finally enjoying going to practice. But the more his life changes, the more his unique style stays the same.
"The show is all about me trying to find my life as a normal person. I have been a figure skater for so long that when I stopped that competitive day-to-day grind, I didn’t know what to do with myself," Weir said. "I don’t know how the world works outside being barked at by a Ukrainian woman and watching my weight.”
After wrapping up taping for season two of "Be Good Johnny Weir," he's already back in training, preparing for the next Olympics.
Weir said that while he was filming, it was nice not to have to wake up early, go to practice, nap, miss lunch, train again, miss dinner, go to bed -- then repeat it all the next day.
“It was so nice to have all that time off to eat chicken fingers,” said Johnny, adding that a return to competitive skating was the natural thing for him to do. “I tried everything in season 2. I tried singing, I wrote a book, I was designing and I really tried everything I possibly could. It was a great opportunity. It felt for the first time in my life, if I failed at something, it wasn’t the end of the world. Now I’m skating again because I want to, not because I have to. And that’s a huge change in my life on a day-to-day basis."
"Time off has been beneficial to my training, but I will never change. I will be 60 or 70 years old still rocking my Chanel blazer with my hair all coiffed," he added.
The second season of "Be Good Johnny Weir" premieres on Logo at 9 p.m. on Sept. 17.
