Skaterman Johnny Weir Totes a Birkin, Dishes on Bethenny Frankel

Olympic skater and fashion-fiend Johnny Weir is truly everywhere this season — walking in a loincloth at Richie Rich, showing off his triple axels at Elise Øverland, attending countless shows and partying with Jill Zarin at the launch of her Skweez Couture shapewear line last night. We caught a brief moment with the skater, who was rocking a shiny velvet blazer and toting a Housewives-appropos cream Hermès Birkin.

Racked: So what did you think of former RHNY fan fave Bethenny Frankel's performance on Skating With the Stars?

Johnny: I was impressed that she did it in just six weeks. It's a hard thing to do and I applauded that. But Bethenney was very disrespectful to the judges and didn't want to hear what we had to say — constructive criticism — and I respect people in other fields that are better at it than me and I felt very disrespected.

Racked: Oh snap. Well, let's talk fashion. What else should we be expecting from you this week?

Johnny: Wednesday, I'm walking in Indashio’s show. And Thursday, I've designed part of the collection for Adrienne Landau. I'm so nervous because it's coming out on Thursday.

Racked: So are you taking a partying break tonight then?

Johnny: No, I just came to support Jill and say hi and I'm back off to bed now.

Do you think Johnny had to go on the wait list for this?
