Celebrating The Birth of Our Savior


Everyone's parents should join them in boozing on their 21st birthday.  It is always possible that Valeri attended to make sure she didn't eat any cake.




Since retiring from skating, it has been reported that Hot Mess Keauna has never met a party that she didn't enjoy.  Nastia and HMK met while performing at the Disson Skatenastics Craptacular.


Calories that Nastia shouldn't need to burn off in her Olympic comeback.


Now that she's returning, Nastia will exist solely on Sushi in order to get her Olympic body back.



Sam-Bam joined in on the festivities.



The golden couple.


 Token Asians.


The Wannabe Bruin

 Ms. Memmel joined in.


Black is slenderizing.

    I think Nastia looks really nice here.

  5. Token Asians! haha

    Where is it coming from that Keauna is a "party animal"? I wasn't expecting it, but I guess I could see it. She seems a little nuts. I just don't think someone can be labeled a "partier" for attending a few parties.

    Chellsie Memmel and Nastia must have really repaired their relationship over the years. If she's flying all the way out to LA for Nastia's B-day, they've really come a long way since their fights at that first Worlds together.

  6. Keauna was never in the Disson Skatenastics show... Her and Nastia probably met through Evan or something like that at Nationals or Worlds or something.

    I always do worry about how the skatenasts will "rebel" after not making the Olympics, especially if they quit. It leaves them with a lot of free time... And boredom is not good for people used to having a lot to do. Not that I think there is anything wrong with partying within reason, but excess in anything is no good. That includes drinking.

  7. What's with the token Asian comment

  8. Nastia looks pretty good. I don't think college girls are aware enough about how many calories are in all that alcohol they drink. It would be like stuffing your face with ice cream and brownies every single day. Terrible. But I think Nastia at least got the memo.

  9. Color me shocked....Memmel and Liukin, together again, voluntarily? Never pictured them as buddy-buddy at all. In fact, she always seemed to be a bit of an outcast on the U.S. team. I always wondered if Memmel wasn't girly-girl, enough for likes of SP, AS, and Miss Nasty.

  10. What! Chellsie and Nastia are friends! It is nice to see people apologize and forgive. That takes real maturity. And they didn't just make up, they are legit friends. It makes me think more of both of these girls, I gotta say.

  11. Tell me that's just bad lighting/a bad pic and Keauna's hair is not a very unnatural shade of red. I love when people with naturally beautiful hair ruin it by dying it odd colors.

  12. Thank you Chellsie for being such a bronzer holdout. OOMPAH LOOMPAH DOOBITY DOO...

  13. is Evan out of the closet yet? or is he still pretending and portraying to have a semi-relationship with Nast? They're totally "Will & Grace." I could watch the Evan & Nastia show all day.

  14. The status of Nastia and Evan still confuses the hell outta me.

    Who is that girl in between Nastia and Sam?

    I know some friends of Keauna's and they are pretty big partiers. Idk if they hang out much, but still... Peer pressure is intense in high school/college, and if your friends aren't really interested in much else but partying, sometimes you end up doing it too to fit in and have something to do.

  15. Nastia looks beautiful and has a good head on her shoulders. I think it's nice that she had a party that was classy enough to have her parents there (don't kid yourself, Russians love their drinks) rather than doing the typical "go to the bar, have 21 shots" that many 21 yr olds dangerously attempt to do on their birthdays.

  16. I suspect Nastia liked Chellsie more once she stopped being a threat to her AA prospects.

    Where did you find the pics AJ?

  17. inherit your mom's forehead much Nastia?

  18. Wow. Chellsie always struck me as the outcast among Alicia, Nastia and Sam. She didn't seem to be the sushi-loving, shopping, go-to-LA-and-hang-out-with-celebs-type.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I agree, anon 9:26. I think it was great Nastia included her parents at her party (Dad probably paid, anyway). Looks like it was an awesome location overlooking the city.

    Chellsie must think a lot of Nastia to fly out to LA for her party.

  20. I had the opportunity to work at the Beijing Olympics and watched every training session (including closed ones in practice gym).

    Nastia was far and away the team leader. In her ethereal goddess zone, but so on top of what was going on, and rallying everyone, and relating with the entire team.

    The person closest to Memmel was without question Nastia. They were actually fairly tight and seemed to understand each other. Nast was right there when Chellsie went down on the tumbling pass and realized it was serious- right away she kneeled down and held her hand and called the coaches over.

    Sacramone and Peszek were a bit aloof to Memmel and to a lesser extent Sloan and Johnson. Sac & Sam were just tied at the hip and no one could penetrate their little world. Sac was also super close with her coach, though.

    Johnson, had a fine enough time interacting with just about everyone else equally.

    Bridget was probably the biggest outsider; looked like the new kid trying to fit in. She's also probably the one who walked around and chatted with athletes from other countries the most, after she finished competing.

    Nast & Chells met in Wisconsin earlier this year, too. The hateration just ain't there.

  21. Well I don't think Alicia's too fond of the go-to-LA stuff either. Maybe these girls were less "cliquey" back then than it actually seemed. Maybe they just grew up.

    I could see Nastia liking Chellsie better once she wasn't a direct threat in competition, but that wouldn't explain Chellsie liking Nastia so much after what went down in '05.

    Maybe these girls put aside their differences and just appreciate one each other more because the bond they had being on the same team.

  22. yeah, papa Valeri probably did pay for this party...

    Nastia's not some regular bar-hopping, party-her-face-off kid... I expected her parents to be at any birthday event she had. She's obviously very close to them.

  23. Why are people so surprised that Nastia and Chelsie are friends. To me it was fairly clear they were pretty close when Memmel was at the bars event finals chalking up to Nastia.

    Yes Nastia was a little brat to Chelsie when Chelsie won, but you know what perhaps Chelsie understood a little bit why Nastia acted that way. Perhaps she realized that maybe it was tough for Nastia at 15 to lose like that. Perhaps Nastia apologized and they eventually got over it. Haven't we all said things to even friends in anger that people got over eventually.

  24. Yeah they were both on the gimp squad for 2006-07 so there was probably some bonding there too. I can always imagine camps where Shawn is busy winning everything and Chellsie, Nastia and Alicia were off icing their shit and thinking about how badly they wanted to take her down a peg. Heh.

    Interesting that Nastia was more a leader in 2008 than Alicia, who always comes across as the defacto team mom. I wonder if Alicia was pissed off at Nastia for not rooming with her in 2008 and just got super cliquey with Sam.

  25. Bekalynn, I agree. It seemed clear by 08 that Nastia and Chellsie were friends. Whatever happened during 05 was done out of emotion, and they seem to have gotten over it.

  26. Anon at 8:42, the girl is Talia Kushynski, a senior at UCLA. She is a hip hop dancer and her floor routines are quite cool, although she's not the most talented gymnast (but then again she doesn't hog a scholarship, unlike some others, so it's all good). Miss Val usually lets her exhibition or even compete a few times every season.

  27. No Asac, no SJohnson...hmmm. So who did Evan bring with him as his date to Nastia's bday party?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Evan brought Nastia! They make a cute couple. My best wishes to them!

  29. Anon 1:48, ASac was in London at the time of this party watching her bf's team play. I'm sure she was invited.
