She took home the gold medal in the individual all-around event, a team silver, a bronze in floor exercise, a silver on the uneven bars, and a silver in balance beam. With these winnings, Liukin is tied with Shannon Miller and Mary Lou Retton for the record as the American gymnast with the most medals won at a single Olympics.

    Slideshow: All The Presidential Candidates’ Accessories

    Because Barack Obama and John McCain are stuck in suits most of the time, the only chance we have to see their style is in the accessories. Now, we think some of the lapel pins that the candidates and their wives have been wearing are a little much — we’re in a recession, people, you shouldn’t be wearing so many diamonds, even if they are fake! Michelle Obama has completely nailed her accessories. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, has gone overboard. Keep reading »

    Gossip Girl: Chuck Bass Needs Love, Not Sex

    Last night’s episode was a total re-enactment of the favorite teen movie “Cruel Intentions.” Blair was Kathryn, conniving bitch with a secret sexual side, Chuck was Sebastian, the bad boy with a secret good heart, and Vanessa was Annette, the do-gooder who the bad boy tries to persuade. There was a bet for Chuck to destroy Vanessa, and the reward being sex with Blair. Just like in the movie, there was a bet for Sebastian to destroy Annette, with a reward of sleeping with Kathryn. In the end, the boy wins the bet but decides he doesn’t want the girl. He wants more. Keep reading »

    Whitney Port, formerly of “The Hills,” moved to New York a couple months ago to work for designer Diane von Furstenburg. Come Dec. 29, she’s back on MTV in “The City,” which is “The Hills” on the other coast. We hope this doesn’t ruin Whitney for us. She always seemed like the smartest, most-together cast member on “The Hills.” From the short preview above, it seems that Whitney will hang with socialite Olivia Palermo and be fought over by two cute boys.

    What’s So Great About Rachel Maddow?

    MSNBC has always been my news network of choice (sorry CNN, Fox News, and C-SPAN!) — I loved Tim Russert and was always an avid “Meet The Press” watcher, plus I generally just enjoyed the rapport between the network’s anchors, especially during election years. But after Russert’s passing my loyalty was kind of up for grabs again. Rachel Maddow has kept me a MSNBC loyalist — a frequent panelist on shows like “Hardball” and Keith Olbermann’s show, she recently scored her own show on the network at 9pm and has had HUGE ratings since practically the first episode. In fact, the number of viewers for that hour of television on the network has DOUBLED. Why? Keep reading »
