Can't Stop Twirling

If we wore a floral flared skirt like the Olympic Gold Medalist, we wouldn't stop twirling too! The two-piece paisley printed outfit made Tara feel like a little girl again with its soft notes and fun style. The Olympic broadcaster styled her hair in a half-updo to match her outfit, curling the tip for extra pizazz. She tucked the tank top into her micro mini skirt, flaunting her slender legs as she stood tall in champagne gold pumps.

Earlier this week, Tara and her co-host Johnny Weir expressed their disappointment at Russian Olympian contender Kamila Valieva's return to the Ice Rink during the Women's Short Program. The young skater tested positive for a banned substance in the game, yet the committee excused her transgressions and continued participation.

That didn't go down well with professionals in figure skating, including Tara. As an ex-skater, the 39-year-old was in the best position to speak out about the precedent the committee set by allowing Valieva to skate.

We have to remind ourselves that she is just 15 years old, a minor, and I know more than anyone what it’s like to compete at an Olympic Games at 15 years old. But a positive [drug] test is a positive test. She cannot skate.

In 1998, Tara won the Women's Skating Competition at 15 but, she explained to CNBC Make It, the success didn't come without its challenges.

Starting her career at age 3 narrowed her view to thinking that sport was the only important thing.

Many times over my career, I don’t think I was able to understand that there was so much more outside of figure skating because it was all that I did and all that I knew. And so the lows were much lower, because to me at the time, sometimes I felt like if I didn’t win my career would be over.

Now that she's a grown woman, Tara understands there's more to life than figure skating although she's still connected to the sport through analysis.

Fun On Set
