And, no, it wasn’t Ryan Seacrest!
Adam Rippon has been hitting up the media circuit since he returned from South Korea, where he took home a bronze (along with the rest of Team U.S.A.) for his skating but got a gold medal in sideline commentary. Every kween I know is laying a thirst trap on Instagram for Adam, and apparently that’s no different for E! News host Justin Sylvester.
Justin joined the likes of Sally Fields (admittedly, she was trying to nab Adam for her son) when he tried to slyly ask Adam out on a date during an interview the other day on E!. His “Daily Pop” co-hosts asked him if he’s sexting much these days since his mom told him to be careful. Adam tried to make it sound like he was busy but open to dating, which caused the two gals to knowingly glance at Justin with looks that said, “Boy, we teed this up for your ass. Do us proud.”
In a completely un-staged moment, the camera zoomed in on Justin in the same manner as when the secretary storms into the house in a telenovela screaming the results of a paternity test. He offered to take Adam out on a date to show him “his” L.A. and “just kick it.” Adam said he “loves to just kick it” and then, again in a completely un-staged moment, picked up a rose like his ass just won The Bachelor. I don’t know about Justin, but my version of L.A. and just kicking it means getting three of everything from In-N-Out, and just kicking it on the couch from a food coma while Real Housewives Of Wherever plays…I guess this is why I’ll never see ice skates under my bed!
Tom of Finland’s ice-skating younger brother Adam Rippon entranced many during this year’s otherwise savagely boring Winter Olympics. (There wasn’t ENOUGH Adam. Or ENOUGH Chris Mazdzer, for that matter. For two entirely different reasons.)
Especially wowed by Adam was veteran actress Sally Field and her son Sam Griesman. Sam posted a sweet text exchange between himself and his mom in which she urged him to pursue Adam as a love interest. Despite Sally claiming he was “mortified,” Sam was probably pretty boned when Adam responded back to him and Mom. And now they’ve met! Sam tweeted the above picture last night from a Human Rights Campaign event in L.A. Adam was given the Visibility Award. Sam added the caption, “Thanks, mom.”
There’s no word if Adam got to put his Oscars harness back on for some celebrity athlete-on-celebrity son sex, but it’s nice to know that they’ve had the chance to see if there’s some sparkage. And if there wasn’t, hopefully Adam (or Sam) was nice enough to wait until after that HRC event to inform the other one. If it was Sam saying no, that’s just mean on someone’s big night. If it was Adam, well, that’s just saying, “I’m on top of the world and you’re not coming with me, lesser.”
Adam Rippon may have become the star of the 2018 Winter Olympics and been named HSOTD for the little “hold me daddy” harness he wore to the Oscars, but if he thinks he can come for Johnny Weir, the one and only Ice Queen that counts (no Elsa, take a seat dear. This competition is not for you until you come out), he’s got another thing coming.
When Adam appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and insinuated that Johnny is jealous of his boogie, Johnny #tooktotwitter and opened up an entire can of… mature response and genuine encouragement? Damn, son! Shit just got Weir-ed!
What the 2018 Winter Olympics was really missing (besides Steve Langton pulling a Pita Taufatofua by showing up topless, oiled-up and ready to go at the closing ceremonies) was 28-year-old Adam Rippon and 33-year-old Johnny Weir skating hand-in-hand onto the ice in matching sequined catsuits and twirling in unison to an acoustic, haunting version of Lindsay Lohan’s Rumors as a response to Page Six saying that Johnny is the Cristal Connors to Adam’s Nomi Malone. But Adam and Johnny never dropped a load of glittery shit onto that rumor, and that could be because there was some truth to it.
Sally Field’s son Sam Griesman spent the weekend with a case of mombarrassment after he was caught in the middle of a not-subtle Olympic-themed matchmaking attempt by his mom on Twitter. Sam admitted that he had a crush on Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, and Sally responded by grabbing the ball from her son and shooting his shot for him. The good news is, Sam can stop whatever cringing he has been doing, because a very-flattered Adam recently responded to Sally’s enthusiastic attempt at getting them together.
If you happen to be in PyeongChang and see a gleefully prancing pompadour around the NBC studios today, leave it be! It’s Johnny Weir basking in job security because, despite reports Adam Rippon would take on a role as a Winter Olympics correspondent for NBC for the remainder of the games, he has decided to turn down the job offer.
