Erika knew what was going on even more because she keeps repeating it. When she kept saying I wonder where the money is it’s like bitch you spent it on your joke of a pop career and private jets and everything Tom bought you. There’s no way she didn’t know where that money was coming from." -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ^ This is the overwhelming sentiment I feel, as well.
  2. For me: Bethenny, LuAnn, Ramona, Jill, Sonja, Dorinda, Heather, Carole, 8 women strong. All big personalities and entertaining. I would just love to revisit the dynamics of Bethenny/Jill, Bethenny/Heather, Bethenny/Carole, etc.
  3. I felt so bad for Yang because Cao had already won a Gold 4 years ago and Yang really deserved the Gold what with that 112 point round. Wow! But both men were superb.
  4. As for Moldauer - great landings, but I always wonder if/when those lesser skills will be botched and, it sure happened to him there. As for Yoder - given how the even unfolded, he missed an opportunity for Bronze. As for Suni Lee - thank goodness her relative high start value and execution held her for Bronze. But if she hit, she would have won Gold.
  5. I completely agree. I miss the days of School Figures for skating and Compulsories for gymnastics. I think both sports need an overhaul for both the EXECUTION of lesser skills, and also for their SCORING systems. There has to be an easier way to score both sports. It went from incredibly easy and accessible to nearly impossible (unless a commentator thoroughly explains it or you know the sport extremely well). In skating, they should replace the Short Program with a Compulsory Program that emphasizes execution of easier elements (simple layback spin, simple camel spin, straightline footwo
  6. I wonder if after a few days, Simone might bow out of Vault (too mental, allows her good friend MyKayla Skinner to sub in) and bow out of Bars (she'd likely not medal) ... but focus on beam (which she missed Gold in Rio) and FX. Hoping she competes in a few, if not all. But it's all up to Simone.
  7. I don't care what anyone says ... that was deplorable coverage of the Men's All-Around. 52 minutes and, really, probably 30-35 minutes when you take out commercials. AND ... we saw 2(!) routines from the winner ... and 1 (!!!) routine from the Silver Medalist, and it was his final event when the caption read "Leader after 5 rotations". WHO DOESN'T SHOW THE LEADER AFTER 5 ROTATIONS UNTIL THAT LAST ROTATION (AND FINAL 5 MINUTES) ??? I understand that Malone/Mikulak weren't medal contenders, I understand the time change, and I even understand that some Live events would be coming on aro
  8. Just watched the USA Mens Podium Training online. General thoughts: Our men look to be in good spirits, but some podium training jitters here and there. Yul Muldauer looked best, to me. Calm on all the events, lots of stuck landings. Brody Malone looks outwardly confident, but maybe a bit nervous inside -- lacking in some of the Int'l experience of his compatriots. Struggled a little on PB. Didn't have a lot of stuck landings. Sam Mikulak really seemed to struggle on FX with his hardest pass (ending in the double front). But overall, he looked more solid than not.

    Fascinating! Most interesting to me is that the Men's 4-person team did not come down to 4th place finisher Sam Mikulak (more solid that we thought) and someone else ....... but Shane Wiskus and - not 5th place finisher Brandon Briones - but Cameron Bock, who finished quite a ways down the results placement. That is because Bock is so solid and needed, really, on PH, SR and HB (weaknesses for the USA). Bock was soooo close. Also, the Women's 4-person team came down to McCallum and Skinner. They gave the individual spot to Skinner because of her medal potential on Vault. And I'm k

    Maybe someone knows this answer. Why do some male gymnasts shave their armpits and others don't? I see that many male gymnasts from Europe and Asia tend to. And we see most male swimmers/divers shave their armpits. Most American male gymnasts don't seem to go with that trend, but some do ... like Brody Malone (US Champ). His are shaven clean. Anyone know why this is done by some and not by others?

    I just realized, no Brandon Briones as an alternate (there are 5, yes?) for the Mens team, yet he finished 5th at Trials. Odd???

    I've been thinking a lot about the Team with Grace and with Mykayla as the specialist and ... I'm starting to come around to it a little bit. At first, I was very disappointed for Mykayla, because I thought she earned that 4th spot and now will not win a medal with the TEAM. However, I think they chose Grace because she is more solid overall and can be asked to step-in in a cinch for UB and BB if need be, whereas, I wouldn't necessarily trust Mykalya there. Grace will provide a solid Vault score (though, the team will lose .4-.5 there with no Mykayla). And really, Grace was outscoring My

    Does anybody know? Do ONLY the 4 athletes on the Team win a Medal for the Team Event or do all 6 (Skinner, Jade Carey) get the medal??? Because if that is so, that really, really stinks for Skinner - who I thought was a lock for the Team event - and, instead, she will compete for a spot in the Vault Final with Simone Biles and Jade Carey (who would likely make the finals over her anyway). Kinda frustrating; the decisions that were made.
