At after three am local time on Friday December 10, Johnny Weir sent a Tweet indicating he had slept only an hour due to insomnia and was facing another media blitz. He also indicated he was due at a local Fox Station at 5:45 am. Approximately an hour later he sent another Tweet indicating fans should tune into ABC 7 Detroit to watch him. Two hours after the ABC 7 tweet he sent yet another Tweet; this time indicating he was in the Green Room at FOX 2 Detroit and fans should get ready for more morning madness! Seven hours after the FOX 2 tweet Johnny sent his most recent Tweet, indicating he was heading to the Flint, Michigan ABC station and then to the first stage rehearsal of 'Dirty Love'! Our poor, exhausted Johnny Weir! Hopefully he got enough rest Friday night to be rested before the show Saturday at Perani Arena in Flint, Michigan!

ABC 12 Interview with Johnny Weir:
Johnny Weir's Holiday Dreams on Ice (Article and WJBK Fox 2 Detroit video); and to watch the WXYZ video, follow the link or the embedded video at the bottom of the Blog! Sorry for the mix up, but I can NOT seem to fix it! I also decided to quickly create a separate Blog Johnny Weir's Flint, Michigan Media Blitz (Part 2) just for the FOX 2 video, so whatever weirdness was occurring with the links would not happen. So you may also click over to that Blog to watch the FOX interview.
