The London Olympics just wrapped up last night, but gold-medal gymnast Gabby Douglas is already well into her victory tour back home. The well-spoken athlete, who became the first African American woman to win the all-around gymnastic gold, stopped by the Tonight show today to chat with Jay Leno and fellow guest Michelle Obama. Wearing her signature smile, a leather jacket, and a gold skirt, Gabby admitted that she's "splurging on a McDonald's Egg McMuffin" now that her hard work is behind her. The fitness-minded first lady then quipped, "I'm sure it was on a whole wheat McMuffin." Watch the clip now!
Even when he's not trying to be funny, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte cracks us up. Like when he admitted that he pees in the Olympic pool during warmups. In this new video from Funny or Die, Ryan pokes fun at himself. He says, "The pool is the biggest and most expensive toilet, and it's all mine." Ryan goes on to assure kids that it's OK to pee in pools and to share his plans for a new book, titled Fifty Shades of Yellow. Watch Ryan show off his sense of humor and tell us, are you still crushing on Ryan?
Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones play a couple well past the honeymoon stage in their new movie, Hope Springs. Today on The View, Meryl explained why she thinks women are more likely to bring the spark back to a fading relationship. She said, "Women are schooled in relationships. They start when they're teenagers." Meryl finds a bright side to all the relationship advice found in women's magazines. Watch her share her point of view, and let us know if you agree with her based on your experiences.
On Chelsea Lately last night, Kate Beckinsale was back with her dirty sense of humor to share her obsession with a British TV show about unusual body issues. Kate wasn't embarrassed to admit she watches the graphic show with her daughter, and "you don't get a week without some kind of diseased penis." The no-holds-barred actress said she looks forward to the graphic penis "freebie" every episode, since in real life you can only hope to see around one or two a week. Watch the hilariously inappropriate clip now!
Rhythmic gymnastics, stiff competition, revealing leotards, emotional outbursts, and romantic competitors . . . no, we're not talking about the Summer Olympics, but last night's episode of Bachelor Pad. With flashbacks to last season's synchronized swimming contest, we watched the boys of the Bachelor and Bachelorette spinoff bare almost all in some tight Olympic-inspired costumes during a surprisingly impressive ribbon dance performance. They even made quite the impression with the judging panel that included Olympic gymnast Tasha Schwikert and Bachelorette couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum. Watch the fellas put the ladies to shame — the girls' showing was a flailing, giggle-filled mess — now!
So far, bachelorette Emily Maynard is having better luck with fiancé Jef Holm than she had with Brad Womack. After getting engaged on TV on Monday night, the happy couple held hands during their visit to Live! With Kelly this morning. Kelly Ripa and guest cohost, comedian Michael Buckley, peppered Emily and Jef with questions. Why did she pause before she said yes? What about runner-up Arie or her ex Brad? Do the newly engaged have a strategy to not end up like practically every other couple from the franchise? Emily and Jef were ready with answers. Watch now and weigh in if you think they can beat the odds.
As far as reality-TV love goes, this season's Bachelorette finale felt pretty close to the real thing. Single mom Emily Maynard was down to two guys, Arie, the kissing race car driver, and Jef with one f, the sweet entrepreneur. Emily didn't wait for Arie to propose before she broke his heart. After deciding to let Jef meet her daughter, Ricki, Emily knew he was the one for her. In fact, Jef was the only contestant she introduced to her daughter. With her mind made up, Emily decided to break up with Arie during their date. So us viewers knew that Jef was the winner as he walked up to Emily with a ring in his pocket. But would she say yes to the engagement, or just want to date exclusively? Watch the final scene to find out if you didn't watch, and if you did, relive the moment now. Do you think Emily made the right call?
Tonight in a three-hour Bachelorette finale event, we will find out if Emily Maynard chooses Jef with one "f" or race car driver Arie. This season, starring the single mom with a tragic backstory, is winding down, and although Emily is high in sweetness, there have been some must-see awkward moments. Emily has been a Southern belle while traveling the world for the most part, but she did bring out her "West Virginia backwoods" roots at one point against Kalon, the jerky luxury-brand consultant. Viewers also got a good amount of eye rolls in, including when contestant Ryan told Emily he wouldn't be OK with her getting fat. Not exactly smooth. Watch our favorite clips from each episode so far.
Sigourney Weaver is hoping women will grab a glass of wine, put up their feet, and enjoy her new show, Political Animals, each Sunday on USA. The actress plays Elaine Barrish, a former first lady who stood by her cheating husband before unsuccessfully running for president herself. Sound familiar? The plot mirrors Hillary Clinton's story, except that Sigourney Weaver's character divorces her husband before eventually becoming secretary of state. On The Daily Show last night, Sigourney explained that Elaine is not a fictional portrayal of Hillary Clinton; instead, the show is inspired by a range of American "dynasties," including the Kennedys. Watch her talk about playing a passionate woman with Jon Stewart now.
Fifty Shades of Mr. Darcy, anyone? A publishing company is taking advantage of the uberpopularity of Fifty Shades of Grey by releasing a collection of classic novels with erotic twists later this month. The sexy series, titled Classics Exposed, will include Jane Eyre, A Study in Scarlet, Pride and Prejudice, and more. To get a taste of what could be expected from these steamy versions of the classics, Jimmy Kimmel had his guest Kate Beckinsale read aloud an erotic excerpt from Moby Dick (not from the series) last night. We know from her past late-night-show appearances that Kate doesn't shy away from dirty talk, and this is no exception. Watch her read about blow holes and shuddering blubber now!
