US National team needs a stylist

Hear me Marta? Hire someone to dress these girls because every single one of them looks like they got dressed in the dark.

Sabrina dear, Why are you dressing like your grandmother? Is Nastia giving you advice on what to wear?

Mckayla Dear, Not sure what that outfit is or that attitude. Watch the video about who is the best dressed. Listen to her answer. Listen to everyone laugh and then watch the look on her face. She was serious and she didn’t understand why anyone was laughing. HI-LAAAARious.


VIDEO is here

There are others if you look around the site but they were boring. Guess which video I didn’t watch:)

I think I might like Anna Li. Don’t wait to read that comment because I will probably change my mind if you do:) She seems sweet but this does NOT change my opinion on her gymnastics.

Here is Shawn talking about her beam routine.
Watch Nastia in the background with the bitch face on, crossing her arms.lol

Do I even need to comment on her dress?

Babies Galore,

AWW, Baby Kyla

Look even baby Rebecca was cute and we almost made it through all the pictures without having to look at Nastia.

Baby Aly

Baby Gabby

Baby Mckayla

    Please tell me Maroney didn’t say Nastia was te best dressed lol the video won’t work on my phone for whatever reason I will have to watch them later from the computer lol

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      No best dressed that I saw.lol Only best dancer. A few Alicia’s. A Sabrina and Mckayla picking herself. Anna said Gabby but she’s blind.lol

      • JAS4 Says:

        Perhaps there is still hope yet that she hasn’t brainwashed them all since no one said she was best dressed lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        There is no way anyone could get a vote if the question was best dressed. They all suck.lol

      • JAS4 Says:

        I can’t believe someone said she was the best dancer lol just because she has super twig Legs doesn’t mean she is a good dancer lol I think people just assume Nastia is a good dance or more artistic because she had the righ body type for it but that doesn’t mean it’s true

    • Sandy Says:

      They need to figure something out with their hair…it’s like they all are too used to wearing it in a ponytail or bun and have no clue what to do with it down…especially Maroney! And the makeup was ATROCIOUS on both Maroney and Vega. Oh well. Gotta laugh with them, not at them…they all work hard, one at least one of them is bound to have their little hearts broken come July. So sad.

      I watched a portion of the Nastia video. Two things:

      1. Girl definitely takes time out for that spray tan.
      2. She said she’s “not traveling AT ALL anymore” and is back to practicing “seven hours a day, six days a week.”

      I still don’t believe it.I gotta see it to believe it. Was she NOT just traveling for crap in the last four weeks???

      P.S. there are a lot of videos with Shawn Johnson in them. Doesn’t help if her “PR” people want to make a case to the general public to not be surprised if she doesn’t make the 2012 Olympic team.

      • doughnut sundae Says:

        APPEARANCE

        It is all part of the plan. These girls are supposed to look “toe up from the flo’ up”. But after Ralph Lauren and Proctor & Gamble get done with ‘em, they are going to be fashion models!

        NASTIA

        This was daddy’s opinion at the beginning of April which, for the Weekend Warrior, was about three workouts ago:

        “Rebecca is actually back home right now and I just got off the phone with her,” [Valeri] said. “Everything is going according to the plan. She’s getting back in shape. With Nastia, it’s taking a little bit of a longer time with her, and that’s all I can say.” – Examiner.com

        Nastia needs to stop Tweeting and do her homework.

  2. Exgymgurl Says:

    Anna is like the sorority president that sticks up for the ugly girl and builds her up because her GPA helps the entire house

  3. Aerial Says:

    They brought their own clothes to this. So yes, they all need their own individual stylists, or USAG/NBC/ whoever’s paying need to actually dress the girls for the photo shoots, etc.

    The other problem is, I always find these photos and videos shot poorly. They manage to make tiny girls look hulking in size or they pose them wrapped in a flag like it’s a bathrobe lying on a beam. Tacky, tacky, tacky… I’ve never seen such cheap sports promos as the ones this year for gymnastics.

    But I guess I’d rather them than nothing!

    • Gymbee Says:

      Yes I agree! The dress Shawn was wearing did not look good, didn’t do her any favors in the chest department!

      Also about the camera angles, they look gigantic!

  4. nero Says:

    Love them!! They dress better than me at 16

    These videos are seriously lacking Bross. Poor girl goes from gymnastics prodigy to not even existing in NBC’s eyes

    I believe in you Bross….knock knees be damned!!!

    • Aerial Says:

      You know, valid point Nero. However I do think fashion has seriously improved and also that youngsters are dressing the same as adults more and more these days. (Well, not mom-jean adults, but you know what I mean.)
      I just pictured my school picture at 16 – curled bangs, shiny lip gloss, cherry red jeans and rainbow-striped ribbed shirt. Awful picture and yet all of that stuff was seriously the style then.
      NBC has photo galleries of Bross though… if that’s the site that has the ‘Through the Years’ galleries… she’s one of the featured girls.

      • JAS4 Says:

        They need to get Kate and Pippa Middleton to be the new stylest for the national team lol those girls they are always popular in fashion lol not that I know much about fashion lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I had a smart mother. There are no ugly popular outfits in my pictures of the past.lol

  5. newbie Says:

    I love the pics of baby McKayla & Kyla together… do we know the reason behind McKayla’s move to AOGC??? After seeing those pics I wanna know…

    • JAS4 Says:

      I wonder what happened as well

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        Maybe it’s because Kyla kept writing her name on the chalk bin and McKayla was intimidated , or maybe McKayla thought gee, I want to be just like Mattie Larson, fall like a mess on the floor and compete 2 events for UCLA

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Maybe they thought she wasn’t getting enough attention.

      Did Mckayla do anything as a level 9 or ten ?

    • Shawn Fan! Says:

      luuuved the baby pics of McKayla and Kyla as well!!!

  6. Exgymgurl Says:

    Who are all the blonde girls in Gabbys pictures? Step sisters?

  7. JAS4 Says:

    If any of you happen to watch Make it or Break
    Or even if you don’t go and watch last nights episode online and you will understand why that tweet is so true lol

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I can’t watch that show. It is way too stupid but I have watched enough of it (first season) to want to know who makes the team.

      I don’t remember names. You have the bitchy blond. The passive Blond and the dark haired girl with the long hair and the one with the short hair.

      Let me know who makes the Olympic team.

      • Sandy Says:

        Huh? What is this show you guys are talking about?

      • JAS4 Says:

        Last season short dark hair (Emily) got pregnant by musician boyfriend and ran off to Vegas and isn’t on the show anymore but the other three are still there an some new girls the show got canceled and only has like 2 more episodes and won’t even show them going to the Olympics apparently I think your pretty caught up now lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        LOL All caught up in 3 lines. Lova it.

        You mean they don’t even pick the team? I would be pissed if I wasted all that time for no outcome.lol

        I hope the bitch falls and breaks her leg.

      • JAS4 Says:

        She doesn’t break any legs but has a heart condition this season and I think they might show who at least makes the team in the last episode but not them going to the Olympics

      • annonymous Says:

        I didnt know MIOBI only had 2 episodes left…dammit what a waste of time. I sort of hated it but couldnt stop watching. I think that’s the reason why everyone watches. You just..cant stop.

  8. nero Says:

    Shawn’s PR is pushing these stories hard

    http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-gymnastics-johnson-20120425,0,6742269.story

    The main thing I got out of this is the girls who aren’t chosen for any team are lined up and told ‘Thank you for your effort’

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      She needs to believe in herself. Go all Nastia cocky on herself.lol

      • JAS4 Says:

        I know it would more than likely never happen but I would love for Shawn to show up with a 7.0+ d score on bars and win gold on bars because then I am sure that Nastia would be beyond pissed

    • Sandy Says:

      Sigh…I love her. I hope she makes it. If Nastia makes it over her I will just be…LIVID.

      • JAS4 Says:

        Which is why even though I know it won’t happen I would love for Shawn to show up with and have an insanely good bar routine and beat her on bars

      • Sandy Says:

        Yeah, that would be awesome beyond belief. She’s saying she’s more “artistic” now, especially on floor…I have a hard time imagining that!

        Anyone catch up on Mustafina’s recent tournament? I don’t know what it was but I caught her routines. She did a 6.5 D value on bars (she can do a 7), her vault was really high (she’ll probably get an amanar in by London), her beam was good but her floor was still pretty shaky. Hopefully she gets it in time for London but she’s doing a ton of twist elements on floor and personally I hate her form when she does those.

        Not to change the subject. Anything but the thought of Nastia and her stupid stoic face.

        OH, and Komova grew her bangs out.

    • Shawn Fan! Says:

      the cynical part of me thinks that the ’08 girls’ comebacks are as much a PR move as it is a sincere attempt to make the olympic team.
      Seems like Shawn, ASac, and even gross Nastia are cashing in on their comeback endeavors…..

      • Sandy Says:

        Yeah but can you blame them? It’s not like a comeback doesn’t take time…the only one I want to “out” is Nastia, who started her comeback not even a year ago. Sheesh. SHE’S the one trying to get all this $$$ from a comeback that I still wonder if it’s even legit.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Shawn and Asac proved their comebacks were real. Both showed up and competed the year before the Olympics. Nastia has done nothing but prance around acting like a prima donna and she will be handed her spot for one event even if she does a half ass job. That is what pisses people off.

  9. Sandy Says:

    Oh…here’s another PR piece. SJ “feels good.” Seriously I should get paid to write this sh*t.

    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/olympics/london/gymnastics/story/2012-04-24/shawn-johnson-feels-good-training-london/54510490/1

    And PS there’s Classics on May 26, less than 2 weeks later is nationals, and then two to three weeks after that is Trials. Dude, SOMEONE is going to get injured!

    • Ness Says:

      I agree with you! I think it is just a matter of who will be injured. I feel like if anyone is going to get injured, it is going to be wieber or raisman.

      • JAS4 Says:

        I really hope no one gets injured but I have a feeling if Marta decides to put two bar specialist on the team who aren’t at least able to do something on all events then someone will get injured and the USA could get screwed

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        If she puts two bars specialist on this team she deserves to lose.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        LOL You just passed me for most comments on this blog.lol

      • JAS4 Says:

        Lol! And yeah if USA doesn’t win the team gold I think Marta will “retire” aka be fired then I’m sure Nastia will take over or Valeri will take over but it will really be Nastia running the show Valeri would just be the puppet and Nastia the puppet master lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I wish I had a program where I could make a picture of Nastia being Valeri’s puppet.lol

      • JAS4 Says:

        Lol that would be hilarious!

  10. JAS4 Says:

    In that case Russia so needs Nastia

    • doughnut sundae Says:

      AWESOME interview!

      • Sandy Says:

        I love the Russians this year. Everyone’s playing the hype over team USA but I really feel it’s the Russians gold medal to lose. They will have at least two amanars, spectacular bar and floor work, and their beam sets usually score higher than US women for lack of artistry.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I like the Russians too but their form on vault is atrocious. They make Aly look like Shannon Miller in the form department on that event.

        I think the US’s vault will be wiped out by the Russians on bars which leaves floor and beam as the events to decide the gold medal. If the Russians have 3 falls at the Olympics like they did the year they won worlds they will not be winning the gold medal. Mustafina cannot win it alone. Komova needs to step up and Grishina needs to get consistent.

      • doughnut sundae Says:

        Exactly! In order for the Russian girls to go on a medal haul, everything will have to go right – no injuries, no mental breakdowns… no growth spurts. In order for the American girls to leave empty-handed, everything will have to go wrong – two bar specialists winding up on a team they have no business being on (one cracking under pressure and the other finally – yes, finally! – getting around to doing gymnastics in public), a Twistars touchstone running away to become a groupie, Marta forgetting to bring the babies, Kyla and Sarah, with her to London…

  11. terri3975 Says:

    The funny part is when Anna says she rooms with Gabby and “I saw all of her . . . dance moves.” I’m glad she added “dance moves” to that!

  12. JAS4 Says:

    Beth Tweedle had minor knee surgery apparently

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      As long as she can swing those bars she is on that team.lol

      • JAS4 Says:

        Yeah even if she only did bars she’d be on that team because unless the team gets super good or USA,Russia,China,Romania have meltdowns their best chance for medals is the individual ones

      • Aerial Says:

        I’m still not over Rebecca Tunney’s performance @ the Scam Cup. It haunts me in my dreams. CANNOT believe she is one of GBR’s top 5 gymnasts.

      • MacStabby Says:

        Awww give Tunney a break. It was her first big international, I think. She was nervous! I bet she’ll get her head under control if she sticks around till Rio.

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        Okay why has no one mentioned chellsie fing memmell and why is she not getting her ass to camp ?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Chellsie knows that all that matters is Nationals and Trials. She will do what is best for her and damn Marta and her lame ass opinion. She’s Chellsie Fin Memmel you know:)\

      • JAS4 Says:

        Yeah I know it’s unlikely but Memmel is another one that I would like to show up with an awesome bars routine an beat you know who and make the team and at least she is technically an AAer and if she shows up with a great bar routine and decent everything else I’d put her on the team over Nastia any day

      • exgymgurl Says:

        My point though is that Chellsie is not doing PR or commercials or progress videos or modeling jobs or being on the price is right. What commercially has she gained from this? Not much…. I’d say classics with at least two routines for Chellsie, remember she qualified to nationals by winning classics last year… We’ll see if the shoulder holds up. If shes pacing like a collegiate gymnast she may pull a Kat Ding and surprise everyone… like you said GTT not Nastia hasn’t shown a full routine since 2009 Liukin…

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I hope she does surprise everyone. I just don’t think Marta will take her because there is a chance she could break down like 4 years ago or even last year at Nationals.

        I still stand by my other blog. Chellsie will be the alternate, someone will get hurt and she will back into the role and lead the team to… a medal.

        Are you watching this hockey game? OT is going to kill me before it even starts.lol

  13. Yep Says:

    But where is Sarah???

    …sorry for the tangent…

  14. JAS4 Says:

    Bounty commercial

    • doughnut sundae Says:

      Surely that was the first (blind) swing at a clever marketing piñata. This looks like the same ad concept with a bit of creative evolution.

  15. K Says:

    http://www.nbcolympics.com/news-blogs/blog=rounding-off/post/nastia-liukin-in-a-race-against-the-clock.html

    Nastia’s shoulder is still bothering her!

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I don’t believe her. Sounds like the excuse for her quitting and until she shows us bars I don’t want to hear about her.lol

      • JAS4 Says:

        So I’m guessing she will be pulling out of camp at the last minute again?

  16. K Says:

    Nastia’s beam routine

  17. MacStabby Says:

    vid of some of Nastia’s training for a commercial or some shit.

    • JAS4 Says:

      I looked pretty much like the same stuff she was doing in those videos a few months ago

      • Sandy Says:

        She’s wearing the same outfit/hair style she did with that NBC Olympic fluff/commercial. I’m thinking this is old, too.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      She did not connect half that stuff. Hope she isn’t looking for credit for that shit.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Is it me or does she look wide still through the waist?

      • Aerial Says:

        I think shape-wise, Nastia looks better and better (I guess that’s what happens when you actually start training for real) and is looking slender. I don’t think she could ever be her former wishbone self again (she was even skinnier than I remembered when I recently saw an ’08 clip) but I’m sure in person my calf would be the width of her whole body.

        Routine-wise… I have no idea… I hope Marta is no-holds-barred on her comments after this weekend’s camp to give us some insight on the comeback kids.

        I feel like Chellsie and Sac are different than SJ, NL and Bridget. A couple months ago both the former could not even train at all and they recently had major surgeries. I just don’t see how they could be where someone like SJ is who competed last year and this year and has been rehabbing forever. I don’t doubt Chellsie can surprise but I just have this feeling those two were too late in the game this year.

      • JAS4 Says:

        I would love to hear what really goes on at camp this weekend but I seriously doubt that will happen lol if ASac isn’t ready in time for the Olympics I wouldn’t be surprised if she sticks around for at least another Worlds

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        UGH….. How much time does she have? She gets those connections that’s some serious code whoring bonus….. In NCAA gymnastics where she would not need a dismount either…. She’s in great shape for the post olympic tour…….

  18. JAS4 Says:

    Apparently the video was leaked? Already speculation that Nastia won’t compete

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Leaked my ass. If it was leaked it was leaked by Nastia who obviously knew the video was leaked. Still no bar routine and that is the only way she makes this team

      • JAS4 Says:

        It was probably “leaked” to try and stop all the rumors about her not training

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        She is pretty stupid then because she should have shown us the only event anyone cares about, bars.lol

      • JAS4 Says:

        Yeah even if she didn’t show the full routine you would think she would show something I guess we will know more after camp this weekend

      • MacStabby Says:

        You should see the tongue bath she’s getting with that weak shit on USA Gymnastic’s fb link of that vid. I’d post something, but it wouldn’t be the online equivalent of ejaculating, so it’d probably get deleted (even if it wasn’t mean, just true.)

        Leaked schmeaked. Couch Gymnast’s fb says it was for some commercial. Pretty weak commercial.

      • JAS4 Says:

        It looked kind of like her beam at the skating gymnastics whatever but without music and random dancing

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        USA- site on facebook is hilarious to read. Every other post is Where is Shawn. Where is Nastia.lol

  19. JAS4 Says:

    Crazy bars release move on bars-Memmel needs to do this

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Yes Memmel should do that and get rid of that stupid jam she doesn’t always get credit for not does she hit in a handstand plus it might save her shoulder.

      i never understood why Memmel did not do a Beth Tweddle like routine. Big skills.

      • JAS4 Says:

        I am still hoping for Shawn or Memmel to show up with an insane bar routine and win bars not
        that it would actually happen but one can always hope lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Chellsie would have to hit this routine and stay healthy through classics, Nationals and Trials to have a chance to be be named to this team.

        I DO NOT understand why no one has stepped up with this huge bar routine. Someone has to be capable of a Tweddle like routine? Chow is in the right direction with Gabby on bars. Her bars have some late handstands but if I can’t find a big complaint with the routine no one can. If she keeps hitting this routine and screws up every event she will make this team easily and no one else can figure this out?

      • JAS4 Says:

        Yeah I hope Chow is getting Shawn to do an awesome bar routine as well she isn’t a natural on bars like some but she I think she is capable of a 6.5 d score or so on bars which would make her a good table setter for bars and I think Kyla would be capable of close to a 7.0 d score bars routine like Gabby if she upgrades

  20. Exgymgurl Says:

    What’s funny is the initial Nastia vid was marked private that people were linking to so then usagymnastics posted it… Wondering if it wasn’t a progress video for Marta. It’s filmed from judges view and how that would be a commercial with poor lighting and other gymnasts in the background is weird.

    • JAS4 Says:

      Yeah I thought it was kind of odd for a commercial too I am interested in what happens at camp this weekend

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      How is it marked private and linked? I am telling you this bitch has a killer PR team behind her. Leaking news to get her attention. Brilliant.lol

      So true about the code whoring on beam.

  21. Aerial Says:

    OH NO… no Shawn at camp!!!! How could this be true?? WTF is the thinking and doing at this point?
    No Nastia either but I’m not as concerned about that haha
    FRIG!!

  22. Ness Says:

    Did you guys hear that Nastia backed out of training camp…..AGAIN.
