Olympian Johnny Weir is keeping his rivalry with Evan Lysacek off the dance floor.
The “Be Good Johnny Weir” star had only supportive things to say about the Winter Olympics gold medal winner, who joins the 10th season of “Dancing With the Stars.”
“He’ll be great on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ because he works that hard,” Weir told Zap2it in an interview at The London Hotel in West Hollywood Friday (March 5). “He’ll make himself pretty.”
But does that mean Weir thinks Lysacek will win the coveted disco ball trophy? Well … not exactly.
Check out what Weir had to say about Lysacek and who he thinks will be crowned the dancing king/queen:
We hope you’re right, Johnny!
“Be Good Johnny Weir” airs Monday nights on the Sundance Channel, and “Dancing With the Stars” begins Season 10 on Monday, March 22 on ABC.
