Tessa: I thought you were going to say Tessa is my
best friend… Cause I just recently got him to admit that I’ve been
working on that for a long time. Scott: shh my buddies still don’t know
that I call you my bestie.
‘One night he wakes, strange look on his face pauses then says you’re my best friend and you knew what it was. He is in love.’ -Taylor Swift
I was just going to say about Tessa she doesn’t talk about it enough, how much work she put into that jewelry line. People think she’s just lucky enough to you know work with Hillberg and Berk but she put SO much work into it. I sat there and watched her. And (Tessa giggles, Scott had to listen to me choose even the pink tissue paper) Oh my gosh over and over and over again but it’s this collection that’s so reflective of her so.
On dealing with the media scrutiny she personally faces, Virtue says she’s lucky to have a support system and a skating partner that reminds her that’s there no sense in letting those comments get her down. Virtue says Moir is her rock, confidante and biggest supporter.
*To those who don’t know - this is from Skate Canada 2009 where
Tessa nearly fell twice while performing (Scott caught her both times), probably because of the pain caused by her
compartment syndrome and looked devastated at the end of their skate.
