Vera Wang Is "Just A Mentor" To Evan Lysacek

63 year old Vera Wang is tired of all the rumors and innuendo that she is dating and left her husband for 27 year old Olympic ice skater Evan Lysacek. She says that she is just his mentor. Just because they go out every night and that every time she walks a red carpet she is with Evan does not mean they are anything more than mentor and mentee. “I’m his mentor, his true mentor. I hope for his ongoing life after sports.” I'm not sure what exactly that means. I see nothing wrong with her dating the guy. The fact that one day she was with her husband and the next with Evan and she had known Evan while married and was "mentoring" him then, should all just be innocent fun according to her. As for the reports that Evan also lives with his mentor? She won't say, but I will. He does. You know, for those late night mentoring sessions.

Ms. Wang looks pretty damn good for 63. She could eat a burger or two though.

Ashlea said...

Well if you ask Michael K or Johnny Weir evan is gay. So yea in that case Vera may well be "just a mentor". Just sayin.

libby said...

Are they adults?
Okay I do not give a SHIT. If she can pull a 27-year old, good for her. She looks hot, she's smart & talented.

rejectedcarebear said...

Yeah I always heard he was gay..maybe he's stringing her along for free room and board. Mentor is the new beard?

Kimberly said...

She's 63??? Dayum. Go for it Evan.

Ashlea said...

Id like to cosign Libby's statement. I'm tired of people making fusses over May, December romances. Who cares? Honestly?

VIPblonde said...

Did you see him on DWTS? Totally gay. I'm with @ashlea

Honeykatt said...

I say, Get it Vera.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Wow, these two look alike. Same shape face, same long nose, same body type.

Anna said...

He may wish to get into the design business in some way. I can see him hoping to give up ice skating, and the pressure of it, as the joints go stiff from practice and injuries, and the cold doesn't help. Male ice skating outfits are often so awful, guys need more options.

libby said...

He might be her gay BFF, helping her through a rough patch in her marriage.

My best friend of 15 years was a guy. i was at his house, or his car often late at night....I guess we had to be fucking. I don't remember it, but what else could two people be doing at night? Playing 70's board games? making goofy parody videos in the basement?
Not possible, only sex. SEX SEX SEX.

Cathy said...

Vera has been in the fashion industry for long enough that I'm sure she her gaydar is working well. If he's gay, then I'm sure she's telling the truth about just being his mentor. If he's straight, then good for her! No one would be making a big deal if a 63 year old guy were dating a 27 year old woman.

cleo said...

Isn't Vera known to be a lesbian?

Meanie Reese said...

I, too, thought he was gay. Whatever their relationship, more power to them. Is he still skating? He'll have some beautiful costumes, for sure!

I would make a lousy celebrity. "No explanations, no apologies!" would have to be my motto. Hell, I think I will make it my Nobody motto anyway!

Laura said...

She has my dream hair.

Here's to hoping we can all look that fabulous at 63. Isn't this dude gay? Maybe she has a gaggle of gays like Ina Garten? Whatevs. I don't really care.

dia papaya said...

Happy Friday CDaNers! Here's to looking as great at 63 as the lovely Ms Wang!!!

I was a "mentor" too...

phoenix said...

I read comments by L.A. residents discussing Evan at another site last night. It seemed understood that while Evan isn't out publicly, he doesn't make a secret of his sexuality in West Hollywood circles, so pretty sure he and Vera are BFFs.

Meanie Reese said...

She is painfully thin. Looks great, though!

dia papaya said...

Haha!! That was supposed to say I WANT a mentor too!

I'm not ready to write that book yet. True Confessions of a "Mentor" by Dia P.

libby said...

Reese---The Glorious Tilda Swinton actually survives very well with her 'no apologies' stance on HER personal life. But she IS Tilda though. Where would they ever find another?

auntliddy said...

What libby said. And why is vera even addressing the speculation? Let it go and just be.

Meanie Reese said...

lmao @ Dia's slip! :D

I <3 Tilda!!!

auntliddy said...

Ot, but kinda on topic, susan sarandon and her younger guy are just creepy looking together. He looks like hes 13, and yet shes draped all over him. Anyone else find those two unsettling looking?

sandybrook said...

If shes getting some good for her maybe he switch hits. Id love a 28 yr old girl to want to be with me, so no hypocripsy from me for her

Topper Madison said...

They must be an item because there's no such thing as a gay figure skater.

LottaColada said...

I'm in agreement with everyone else who said he is gay. I'm pretty sure he's open about it right?

LottaColada said...

Lol I would totally read that!

Cheryl said...

Don't most 63 year old women have gay male friends hanging around? Imagine, gays in skating and fashion!

Agent**It said...

He's her "walker", a noble profession.

Honeykatt said...

Ditto

Meanie Reese said...

@Agent: what the hell is a walker?! LOL

hunter said...

Yes, her Walker!! Meanie - a "walker" is what they used to call men back in the days who accompanied single ladies to events. They were often gay and simply fulfilled the duties of a +1 at dinners and events.

Tuxedo Cat said...

The walker also accompanies married women whose husbands are too tired from working who are workaholics or who don't like the endless rounds of society parties.

annabella said...

if the sexes were reversed here it wouldn't even be newsworthy.

trudi said...

Maybe he's a walker with benefits.

luckylass said...

Maybe they are just friends, maybe friends with benefits. Maybe he is bi-sexual. The more people I meet, the more I realize that sexuality can be very fluid.

January Girl said...

I saw Evan picking out furniture a few months ago, and with his mom, no less. And it wasn't a high-end place by any means. So not sure he's living with Vera...unless she let him redecorate.

Cheryl said...

@Agent**It-Cesar Romero did it best!

Sherry said...

I remember hearing stories that he was snarky to Johnny Weir. Not a very nice guy.

jennifer hansen said...

i always thought he was gay. and i still think he is.

Agent**It said...

Reese, I think Hunter and Tuxedo summed it up nicely!

jax said...

i thought they were BOTH gay?

phoenix said...

@Sherry, yeah.. because Johnny outed him during an interview and it was quoted.

dia papaya said...

Thanks Lotta and Honeykatt! I'll write the book if @Karen will be my editor!

Mango said...

He's cute and he likes clothes. Look at him. He's dressed for arctic temps in a suede looking coat, hat AND gloves, meanwhile Vera's wearing a floaty thing that has her arms exposed.

Anna said...

George Hamilton was the most famous "walker" of all time during his youth in Palm Beach. I'm fond of him. His movie "Love at First Bite" was funny at the time, he was usually amusing on talk shows. His tan inspired a Doonesbury segment about the "The George Hamilton Pro-Am Celebrity Cocoa Butter Open", for which one character trained for and won with a tan called "Freeway Bold." He dated a president's daughter and Imelda Marcos.

lc said...

I hear ya Libby. I have lived with several hot guys and that was it. But to the ouside world all we were doing was sexing it up 24/7.
Sex in the morning
Sex in the evening
Sex in the afternoon
All SEX All the TIME!
But it wasn't so..... leave these people alone, geesh! And so what if they are? Sex is great for your complexion and your joints

lc said...

Love Tilda! Now I wouldn't mind having her in my personal life.

car54 said...

I like both of them and if this relationship--whatever it is--works for them, yay.

I thought Evan was gay too but I had not heard it about Vera Wang--but if she wasn't happy being married, then time to move on...life is too short to stay in a situation that isn't right for you.

Sherry said...

We get it Vera, he's your BFF and you're helping him transition from skating to fashion.

And hells YEAH Vera looks great for 63! Dayum.

crila16 said...

I have to say...Vera Wang looks like she's 40 years old...tops. It's shocking everytime I see a photo of her. I pray to the Lord Almighty that I look that good at her age. She must have found the fountain of youth. Amazing.

Mango said...

OT: Some fun Tilda trivia - One of her favorite movies is "The School of Rock". Isn't that cool?

JSierra said...

Please flying spaghetti monster let me look like that when I am 63.

AndyCane said...

That's funny, that's exactly what my dad said about the other woman he was sleeping with.

ino said...

How can Enty not know that Evan's gay?
