The season premiere of Dancing With The Stars ended with a doozy when someone apparently tried to attack contestant Ryan Lochte after his performance with his partner and returning DWTS champion, Cheryl Burke. Judge Carrianne Walsh was critiquing the Olympic swimmer’s first performance when someone, who is obviously still mad about the Rio vandalism, appeared to have rushed at Lochte until security intervened.

Producers made sure we didn’t see anything because a replay of Lochte’s performance blocked everything. It was obvious what happened due to the commotion from the audience, Carrieann’s reaction, and Cheryl was visibly shaken up! Watch the craziness below!

Olympic Gold Medalist, Ryan Lochte, took to social media to release a public apology to fans, the USOC, his team, and the country of Brazil for his behavior stemming from a trip to the gas station that went south!

By now, you’ve probably heard that the swimmer and his three teammates  lied about being robbed at gunpoint to cover up brawl and vandalism at a Rio gas station.

“While we are thankful our athletes are safe, we do not condone the lapse in judgement and conduct that led us to this point”,  the head of USA Swimming, Chuck Wielgus said in a recent statement. ” It is not representative of what is expected as Olympians, as Americans, as swimmers and as individuals”.

 

Here’s Lochte’s full apology:

Of course, Twitter goes in!

Fam, what do you make of all of this?

Black Girl Magic Just keep getting sprinkled everywhere in Rio!

Congratulations to Kristi Castlin, Brianna Rollins, and Nia Ali, for taking all three medals in the 100-meter hurdles final.  The women have made history as part of team USA, executing the first sweep ever in the Olympic high hurdles by women of one nation.

Gold medalist Rollins described it a “sisterhood”, while Castlin added very much a 2016 twist in a phrase more often seen on social media with a hashtag in front of it.

“I think that it’s just very good to be a part of this whole black girl magic movement,” she said.

“We actually came into this not as individuals but as a team. We work together, we pray together and that is how we got this job done.

“It feels good to definitely be history-makers, trend-setters, moms, daughters, really just overcoming and just doing a great job and representing our country well.”

Castlin dedicated her bronze medal to victims of gun crime, a cause very close to her heart after her father was murdered in a botched attempt to rob a hotel where he was the manager.

“Losing my father at the age of 12 to gun violence, I’ve overcome so much,” said the 28-year-old. “I want to connect more with young people that have been victims of gun violence.

“I feel, when I was young, I definitely had a lot of good guidance but sometimes I didn’t have someone of my age that I really could talk too.”

Her fellow medalists have also had to deal with major challenges in their early lives – Ali when her father killed himself in a murder-suicide and Rollins when her father was sent to prison.

 

When we reported about US Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte’s “robbery incident”, we had a feeling something fishy was going on! Today, we report that Rio authorities have reason to believe that the robbery story was fabricated to cover what really went down.

Via ABC News:

As the police investigation continues into the alleged robbery of four U.S. Olympic swimmers in Rio, a Brazilian police source told ABC News that “one of the swimmers was seen on CCTV footage breaking down the door to the bathroom at [a] gas station and fighting with a security guard” on the night of the incident.

Police told ABC News that the swimmers “offered 100 reals and $20″ to compensate for the damage.

Surveillance video from Brazil’s Globo TV shows the swimmers at a gas station.

Swimmer Ryan Lochte claimed on Sunday that he and three teammates were robbed in a taxi early that morning while heading to the Olympic Village in Rio de Janeiro.

Additional surveillance footage obtained by Globo TV shows the swimmers arriving at the French House party around 1:45 a.m. and leaving four hours later. According to the judge, the Olympic athletes claimed to have left the party at 4 a.m.

Lochte told NBC News’ Matt Lauer Wednesday night that the swimmers used a restroom at a gas station and when they got back to their taxi, the driver didn’t move. That’s when two men approached with guns and badges and told them to get out and get down, Lochte said.

Lochte returned to the U.S. on Wednesday, but the three other swimmers — Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and James Feigen — remain in Brazil.

United States Olympic Committee spokesman Patrick Sandusky said Conger and Bentz were detained Wednesday night “shortly before their flight was scheduled to depart from Rio.”

“They were released by local authorities, with the understanding that they would continue their discussions about the incident,” he said.

Sandusky said Lochte’s teammates “are cooperating with authorities and in the process of scheduling a time and place today to provide further statements to the Brazilian authorities.”

“All are represented by counsel and being appropriately supported by the USOC and the U.S. Consulate in Rio,” he added.

 

We watch these Olympic athletes take on their opportunities of a lifetime every four years, as they compete in their respective sport. They get there by training vigorously and with no distractions. When I say distractions, I really mean the opposite sex.

Now that they’ve made it to the biggest sporting competition in all the world, they can finally breathe a sigh of relief…at least during the opening ceremony. Every four years, elite athletes from each country come together for this historic event. I mean GOOD-LOOKING athletes with bodies of GAWDS and nothing but time between competing. What better way to release sport-involved stress than with sex?

According to Bustle, this year’s Olympics in Rio, 450,000 condoms are being given out. Yep, 450,000. That breaks down to 42 condoms per athlete. However, that 450,000 is only part of the nine million condoms being distributed throughout Rio during the Olympics, courtesy of the Brazilian government. “This is considered sufficient to encourage athletes to practice safe sex while in Brazil for the Olympic Games,” the International Olympic Committee (IOC) told the Folha de São Paulo newspaper.

The Olympic Village is the athletes’ home while the competitions take place. We are talking about a place that resembles that of a college dorm. Can you even imagine the number of hot, single, athletes bumping into each other (no pun intended), in a building that consists of any extracurricular activity you could think of, including a nightclub???

It’s been referred to as “just a magical, fairy-tale place, like Alice in Wonderland, where everything is possible,” Carrie Sheinberg, an alpine skier at the 1994 Winter Games who has since reported for other Olympic Games, told ESPN. “You could win a gold medal and you can sleep with a really hot guy.”

The Olympic Village has cafés, TV lounges, a 24-hour McDonald’s that gives out thousands of chicken nuggets per day in the dining hall (which happens to be the length of two football fields), nightclubs (some of which give out free drinks), etc. And the aforementioned condoms, of course.

Also, according to Bustle, condom distribution has risen every four years!

Seoul, 1988: 8,500 condoms
Barcelona, 1992: 90,000
Atlanta, 1996: 15,000
Sydney, 2000: 70,000 (but halfway through, more were needed, so 20,000 were brought in)
Athens, 2004: 130,000

London, 2012:- 150,000

 

Let’s be mindful of the age we’re living in; the age where more open-minded free-spirited folks no longer care to wait until marriage to have sex. But we also have to be safe and careful! Big ups to the Olympic Committee for even coming up with the idea for condom distributions.

I guess you can say it’s normal for a young, good-looking athletes to use sex as a way to get rid of the pressures to compete in their respective sport on worldly television. It’s not only about getting rid of the pressures. I can imagine it’s easy to become tempted when you’re surrounded by other athletes who look like models and looking to have a good time within the village walls. Some athletes reportedly have curfews, but that doesn’t stop them from “exploring”. The 450,000 PLUS condom distribution kinda proves that!

Like all teenagers, Simone Biles, who is winning hearts with fans and celebs alike as an Olympic Gold Medalist in Gymnastics, has recently revealed experiencing a celebrity crush.
In a recent interview with ‘Access Hollywood’, the 19-year-old revealed that she has a crush on Hollywood heartthrob, Zac Efron.
In fact, the teen has a life-size cardboard cutout of Zac in her bedroom (I’m judging you, Simone)…LOL.

She got more than a surprise when Zac visited Simone and the rest of Team USA on the Today Show set in Rio! Watch Simone’s priceless reaction below!

Zac Efron gets a “gold medal” for making Simone’s year! Probably. He probably even made the rest of Simone’s life, gold medals aside!…LOL

Like anyone who is “in love”, you can’t help but brag on social media!

This is cuteness overload!
