Blind Items Revealed #4

May 15, 2014

It had the potential to be as good as the scene from Blades Of Glory, but alas,  our figure skater never made it out to the ice in front of the public. This very much still underage Olympian was hammered the other night before she was scheduled to perform with other skaters but had to withdraw after she started puking prior to taking the ice.

She went to Mitty. Sounds like par for the course.

Needed to take a look at the guesses and it figures the immortal VIP Blonde came out of nowhere (or snuck a peek at DM) and was the only one with the correct name and then age.

Agree with BayAreaGirl. Mitty is notorious.

I don't think she's been skating well this year. Combined with previous time off to recover from an injury or surgery (can't remember), she's going to have to be stellar at US Championships to make the Olympic team, and her competition isn't that stiff. If she doesn't make the team, maybe she'll give up skating altogether and just be a normal girl. If that includes drinking, so be it, but hopefully she learns not to do it on the job, as I'm sure she'll still be able to get Stars on Ice gigs.

@ R k, Polina is a graduate. Archbishop Mitty is a third-tier private Catholic HS. It's where rich people send their kids when they're not good enough to get into Bellarmine or Presentation or the other really good private schools in the SouthBay. Keep in mind the public schools around Mitty are VERY good. I went to a public HS a few miles down the road & my class saw a half dozen kids go to ivy league schools, a handful of cardinals and a couple dozen UC admits. So it's kind of silly to spend so much money on Mitty.

Oh, my, Polina. Hopefully she's grown up a lot.

So where does that leave Winsley and dear old Leo? Never heard the CDAN version of their relationship, is it the same as the public one?

Full disclosure here. I wrote one of Polina’s college recommendation letters and worked at Mitty. I no longer work there but the high school is not 3rd tier. There are folks with money but 25% attending are on financial aid. Like full aid, paid for iPad, internet, prom, and service trips. It also has #1 women’s volleyball team in the country and #2 for basketball. Kerri Walsh and Brandi Chastain are graduates too and returned for Polina’s sendoff. All the private high schools are competitive now and not everyone wants to go to a single-sex high school. As far as Polina goes, she was in my office taking a test 3 weeks before her classmates so she could go to the Olympics. Now it sounds like she’s a normal college student.
