Casting Call!
What part should Ryan Lochte play next?

In this “Access Hollywood” interview, Ryan Lochte spoke “thoughtfully” (nice word choice) about his very first acting role on “90210.” “Memorizing lines, and trying to like, say them and still like, do movement and all that. That was hard,” the Olympian said. Yes Ryan, talking and moving at the same time is hard. That’s why actors get paid so well.

He’s going to have to get used to it if wants a future in Hollywood, as he says he does. Aside from his “90210″ debut, he also expressed interest in appearing on “The Bachelor.” “Before I was training so much that I didn’t have time for a girlfriend … and .. cause I wanted to give that perfect someone, like, my heart,” he explained. “And now that the Olympics are over I definitely want to settle down.” But he wants to settle down with Blake Lively, so the whole “Bachelor” format may not work out. That’s OK, though. We see all sorts of roles in his future. After the jump, our suggestions for Ryan’s burgeoning career. We hope his agent is listening. Keep reading »

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas looked every bit the sparkling superstar that she is while navigating JFK Airport on her way to an appearance on “The Tonight Show” yesterday. Her metallic gold mini skirt and black motorcycle jacket are a flattering, edgy, and age-appropriate choice for her triumphant return to the U.S. Gabby definitely wins gold in the Best Outfit All-Around.

Annie Lennox totally killed it during last night’s Olympic closing ceremony. The singer, who got her start as one half of The Eurythmics, performed a rousing, pirate-y rendition of her hit “Little Bird,” which stood out against the four (four!) Jessie J performances and Fat Boy Slim’s faux DJ-ing. We were reminded of Annie’s super original look, especially her standout style during her early years with The Eurythmics, and decided to try and copy her boyish look. After the jump, we give you our best go at Annie’s signature “Sweet Dreams” style, softened just a touch.

Who’s That Whispering In Ryan Lochte’s Ear?

Ryan Lochte, medal-winning swimmer, pool pisser, and chaste ladies’ man, continued to celebrate his 28th birthday in London this week, even leaving da clurb with a pretty blonde. I wonder what she’s whispering in his ear? “What your mom doesn’t know can’t hurt her”? Click on to see more photos, including Lochte’s rad David Bowie shirt which I am totally going to steal from his closet when we sleep together.

21 Photos That Prove Rhythmic Gymnastics Is Not So Lame After All!

I must admit, I haven’t always entirely understood rhythmic gymnastics. Oh sure, it requires skill, but I’ve always wondered if rhythmic gymnasts were people who couldn’t hack it in regular gymnastics once the various apparatuses were introduced. Well, upon watching the rhythmic gymnasts perform at the London Olympics these last two days, I am prepared to admit I may have been wrong. These ladies work their ribbons, balls, and hoops like nobody’s business, all while contorting their bodies into crazy positions. Click through to see some of these goddesses in action.

“Broad-shouldered, flat-chested women with small hips; [they are] totally indistinguishable from men. Their breasts – the symbol of womanhood, motherhood – flattened into stubs as they were seen as mere hindrances to speed. I am not even talking about female javelin throwers, shot-put athletes, weightlifters, wrestlers and boxers. Their appearance is just pathetic.”

You know how sometimes crusty old dudes say laughably sexist things? Like, things you can’t even waste the energy getting offended about because they’re so preposterous? Meet Turkish columnist Yuksel Aytut, who wrote a column called “Womanhood Is Dying At The Olympics.” Yes, seriously. Womanhood is dying. All those female athletes are running, swimming and kicking soccer balls when they should be back at home rubbing their husband’s feet. Such a shame!

Oof. Obviously this man has not clicked through a slideshow of women’s beach volleyball butts. [WonketteDaily Mail UK]
