Sunday on ABC, during the credits for the movie Jungle to Jungle
(which was just before Millionaire), they showed an ad for Michelle's
new special, Princess on Ice. They showed her in
costume skating to "Body Rock." They also showed her
in the white
costume. I'm sure they showed her in a few other programs, but
I turned it on after it started, and I was so excited to finally
see some promotion for the special that I don't think I remember
everything. They also showed Dorothy Hamill and Katarina Witt. Hopefully
they will show this ad many more times this week before it is on
on Michelle's new Disney special, Michelle Kwan: Princess on Ice.

"Michelle Kwan-Princess on Ice." According to an article
about O-Town, Michelle's next Disney special will be on January
20. Since the ladies long program for Nationals is on ABC from 9-11
night, it is possible that Michelle's special would be on at 8.
As I wrote about
earlier, the special is possibly being taped this week.
news about Michelle's next Disney special. Lisa e-mailed me about
a chat Elvis Stojko had recently, where he was asked about his upcoming
are you doing after Improv-ice?
SPEAKER_Elvis_Stojko: Pro-Am competition on the 10th ..Going
to LA for a Disney show with Michele Kwan and then a Christmas show
at our rink in Astin called IceWorks.
I am assuming that by
"going to LA for a Disney show" means that he is going
to LA to tape Michelle's next Disney special, which is probably
the show I wrote about earlier.
Since the IceWorks show is on the 16th, that means the Disney special
will be taped sometime between December 11 and 15. I'll let you
know when I get anymore info (Thanks
