This and That

MK may not be much of a public speaker. But I'd pretend she was just to be in her presence.

THE media event: GABBBBBYYYYYYY DOUGLAS!


First Look: Olympic Gold Medalist Gabrielle Douglas on Oprah's Next Chapter
Olympic gymnast Gabrielle "Gabby" Douglas won gold and the hearts of millions. Now, Oprah travels to West Des Moines, Iowa, to sit down with this 16-year-old gold medalist. Plus, Oprah meets Gabby's mother, Natalie; her three siblings; her coach, Liang Chow; and visits with her host family.

Tune in Sunday, August 26, at 8:30/7:30c.


More about Yu-Na Kim's programs. She will be working with David Wilson once again.

Fantastic interview with Aliya Mustafina about the Olympics, Alexandrov, her injury and how she was forced to do beam after Grishina refused to compete it in team finals. Our girl Aliya is simply a fierce ass fabulous bitch who will reign supreme once again.

Carly Patterson is getting married in Dallas and living up to to awful Communications-major stereotypes.


There are really no words to adequately discuss John Geddert's Olympic tattoo.  It is as if he did the vaults himself. Tool.



McKayla Maroney's welcome home interview. She says she intends to train a triple twisting yurchenko. If her agent is worth a grain of salt, she won't set foot in a gym for a long time. "It was like amazing because we're best friends and we're teammates."  What was the best part of the Olympics? Seriously...I'm sure she really enjoyed falling on her ass and losing the individual gold. With her family securing a bodyguard, it looks like she may be busy in the public eye for some time.

BTW Kyla Ross is IN for 2013. Yawn.

  5. Am I the only one who thinks Gabby looks like Oprah's long lost daughter?

  6. Boy, Grishina and her coaches have really come off badly in all the post-Olympics press.

  7. Love the little girl's face-pulling beside McKayla. She's able to handle the same old questions better than the others. And it's always nice to get more confirmation that she's going to work on the triple.

    I can see why there's a backlash. The athlete who was being coached differently from the others and had her mother with her the whole time- the only one who did- tanked and only did one good routine. Balking from beam put Mustafina under pressure, as her beam isn't ready yet and she had to be paced so as not to be exhausted. But, Komova's weak floor in prelims put Musty under more pressure too, as that is why she was used there in team finals. But when one is singled out from the rest and then doesn't deliver, there will always be a backlash.

  10. Can you imagine the tattoo he would have gotten if jordyn had won anything individually? What a disgusting display of ego

    1. *Shuddering at the thought* - probably a "portrait" tattoo of Jordyn from her medal stand photos on his chest?!? As I like to say - the smaller the Olympic tattoo, the bigger the star (and person within) and vice versa!

  11. Aliya's interview was refreshingly sharp and honest, especially when compared to the post-PR-ified US gymnasts (with the exception of McKayla.)

    Interestingly, if you go back to pre-olympic-trial interviews with Gabby, you'll find that she's a lot more relaxed and off the cuff in those interviews. Love it.

    1. (anon @ 7:58 - I'm not actually trying to reply to you, but my web browser is acting up and I can't seem to post a comment any other way.)

      Mustafina's post-London interviews have been so wonderful. She is introspective, sincere, and seems committed to giving thoughtful answers. Team USA is so vanilla and lacking in substance; team Russia (besides Aliya) spends too much time complaining about the scoring and how everyone is out to get Russian gymnasts. Aliya is a nice break from all of that. It's not hard to see why she's so successful. She has the perfect attitude.

      The less that is said about Geddert's tattoo, the better. He's truly shown his true colors over the past month.

    2. I'mso sick of Geddert. I'm glad Aly Raizzzzman for all her effort is not getting much press. She should just go away and join a kibbutz. Nice girl but girl but so boring and desperate in interviews.
      Maroney is truly a star and even Gabby can't touch her when it comes to charisma. God blessed us all by preventing Jordyn from winning the AA.
      Aliya is a gem. I hope she stays healthy and obviously she is smart and determined. Grishina is a basket case and should grow some balls for the next quad. The less said about Komova the better.
      Yuna Kim's ass will be handed to her by GRACIE GOLD.....Mark my word!

  12. I bet Geddert got that tattoo after Jordyn won the 2009 American Cup and he's just been waiting to unveil it, thinking Wieber was gonna win AA Beam and Floor at the Olympics.

  13. That tattoo picture was gross and should have been hidden behind the jump. Or better yet, scrubbed from my brain.

  14. here comes the Gracie Gold hype. She has to compete first before proclaiming she will kick Yuna's as*. *rolleyes*
