Michael Weiss is a three-time national figure skating champion, a two-time World bronze medalist, and two time Olympic team member. The 33-year-old accomplished skater has taken his skills on the road with the Smucker's Stars on Ice Tour. The father-of-two opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about life on the road, his love of skating and the unique ways he stays in touch with his family while on tour.
CBS: You and your wife Lisa are parents to two children, Annie-Mae, 11, and Christopher, 10. What is it like to be on the road and away from your family while on tour?
MW: "The bad part is being away from them for 5 months, but the great thing is I have nothing to do for the other 7 months!! While I am on the road, I do as much as possible to stay in their lives day to day. That means helping with homework over the phone, having them read to me over the phone, and sometimes I call them, and put the cell phone in my pocket while I'm skating and performing in the Smucker?s Stars on Ice show - and talk to them while I'm doing a group number :) They love it, and I get a kick out of it too."Special Headline: CBS Exclusive
