VMA’s and more

Here is a review of the tour. Don’t bother reading said review because Inside Gymnastics wrote it. It literally says nothing. “Hey I saw the tour, it’s has different lighting and we won’t use pop music” That is your review. I can’t believe anyone is spending money on this.lol but hey, it’s your money:)


The girls were on the VMA’S. I was actually watching the marathon of the Mentalist on television (1 pm to 9 PM ) then I sat through the most boring awards show ever. I watched a bunch of music from musicians I don’t know. I watched Rhianna not clap for anyone that won an award. I saw John Ozorco sitting in the crowd for like 3 seconds until later that night when the Fierce five came out for three seconds and introduced Alicia Keys. She sang a song I didn’t know and had just Gabby flip around for a few seconds. As soon as I saw Gabby flip I changed the channel and never went back.

Now lets talk fashion. Here is a picture of the what the girls wore.

I thought Kyla looked the best. Her dress was adorable and classy and something I think any other 15 year old in the world would have picked out.

Mckayla’s dress was cute but the color was way too light for her complexion. Her face kind of faded in with the dress.

I hated Jordyn’s dress on the stage but looking at it after in pictures I like it a lot better. Maybe if she was a little taller it would have looked better.

Aly, oh dear Aly that dress was gross. The color was gross, the style was gross. You have a tiny waste try wearing something fitting. Pink shoe’s?

That brings us to Gabby. The dress was horrific. It looked like something a grand mother would wear. The purse did not match and neither did the style of the boots. I have yet to see this girl wear a single outfit I would put my dog in. This was just ugly.

    They look fabulous… though Aly appears to actually be wearing a long-sleeved shirt of a 55 year old. (No offense to anyone who may be 55 and much more stylish.) The angle of this photo is weird… looks like they squeezed it to make the girls look thinner (because they need that of course) and Gabby’s dress looked better in the other ones I saw.
    I don’t watch videos so without this coverage and the girls’ tweets I wouldn’t even know video awards still existed. I’m sure at their age such an appearance and seeing all those people in person plus presenting would have been the biggest thrill.

    I just finished watching a re-run of the show (like you GTT I switched channels right after Gabby came on and showed her bra to the world.)

    I mostly agree with you on the fashion choices!
    My favourite looks are Kyla and Jordyn. Kyla looked like a 15 year old at a nice party, perfect look for her and very cute and modern. Jordyn obviously went a bit edgier – at first I didn’t like it, but it has grown to be my favourite.
    McKayla’s dress too pale for her, looks a bit like a sexy nightgown on her, not a VMA dress. Darker colour and it would be much better!
    Aly – with those wide shoulders, any dress that isn’t tight-fitting in the waist or chest will just hang straight down and make her seem bigger than she is. I thought Aly was meant to be really into fashion, but so far I haven’t liked any of her outfits. I guess I am just too far out of the fashion world haha.
    I think Gabby’s dress looks like something a grandmother would wear. She’s so short, and it just made her look shorter. I guess maybe if it was shorter?

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      The colors were just horrible. They were too dark for her complexion. The style was gross too. The purse really got me. It was a different color than anything she had on. Like Aly’s shoe’s. They were misplaced.

      The one she wore at the convention was ugly but much better than this attempt.

    • Gymbee Says:

      Haha just read what I wrote about Gabby. Didn’t mean to copy you word for word GTT lol. It just looks exactly like what I saw on old ladies in a trashy wedding I was at a while ago.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        No issue.lol.

        She needs a stylist more than anyone else

      • Case Says:

        Gabby is wayyyyy too thin to wear thick horizontal stripes. It just doesn’t work for her at all. I don’t love Gabby, but I do think she could be super cute with the help of a stylist.

  3. Lissa Says:

    Jordyn looked amazing. Kyla looked great but hers was a safer choice. Jordyn’s look was in and edgy. Striking, yet simple, and it fit her body perfectly. Jo’s hair and makeup were also terrific. Aly’s dress looked better in other pictures. I think it’s fine the dress isn’t form fitting. The problem is both the body and the sleeves fall straight. One or the other needed to to be more fitted. McKayla- cute but nothing special. Something you could buy at any mall. And as for Gabby, well, objectively her dress is fine (if a little amateur Project Runway). But I am really not in the mood to like anyything about Gabby anymore, so I’m going to be biased and say I don’t like it. Can I do that?

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      lol be as biased as you like but if you like that dress I am going to have to send you a few pairs of glasses. It is plain horrid. This blog tends to love Aly (since everyone else hates her) and that dress is horrific. I can separate the gymnast from their lack of style.lol

    • nero Says:

      Haha, yeah you can say that! I HATE Gabby’s shoes and I’m not saying that just because it’s Gabby. If Jo wore those I would want to barf just the same.

      Ok I fucking can’t stand Twilight, I would rather have 5 root canals than watch those abominations of movies, I’ve never seen any other movies that Robert Pattinson has been in and the whole Kristen Stewart cheating thing has been fun because I think she’s an atrocious actress and watching all their fans freak out is a fun way to pass the time.

      But here’s a video at about 3:30 where he stands and talks to the girls for a long time. IDK why but I thought it was sweet how he actually stood and talked to them instead of it just being a passing thing like most big ‘movie stars’ might have done. Plus they’re all teens and probably love Twilight so that must have been cool for them

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        He talked to all of them? That is classic because I read he stopped and talked to Gabby. No mention of the other 5.lol

        I have never seen twilight either. I saw Pattinson in one other movie about 9-11 and he was pretty good in that.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        He was in Harry Potter, haha. He’s actually not that terrible of an actor overall in the other movies I’ve seen him in, and he doesn’t come off (to me) as a complete egotistical a-hole like most Hollywood stars. I do hope he dumps Stewart because he said in a previous interview (before she cheated) that cheating is the one thing he can’t tolerate.

        It seemed like Jo was stand-offish, not wanting a hug. McKayla pretty much leapt in his arms.

        I still think Kyla is the one with the most style. Pair Kyla’s look/style with McKayla’s personality and she’d be an instant star in my book. Don’t get me wrong about McKayla but she’s just not “that” unique looks-wise in the Hollywood world.

      • Gymbee Says:

        I watched it again, and he hugs Jordyn off camera, you can see him leaning in and out again and her hand on his arm.

  4. gingercrush Says:

    Gabby’s is way too long and has no shape to it. Kyla Ross is pretty and I like the black dress but she should stay away from those cows. They’re a bad influence. Mckayla’s is so gross. And I am so over her. She is way over-exposed and I wish I never got to learn how horrible her voice is.

    Jordyn looks great but I don’t like her shoes. And Raisman loses 10, 000 points because anytime I go to the Examiner I have to hear her terrible interview with Dominique Dawes. And considering she is suppose to love fashion. I don’t see anything fashionable about what she is wearing.

    Honestly, though I’m over them all and wish they’d go back to gymnastics or just stay the hell away. Bring on the new crop of US girls. And please don’t allow Americans to dominate this next quad.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I am sorry but we need a US gymnast (Please be Kyla and NOT A Wogaette to win the AA so I never have to see Gabby’s name again. After that I say share the wealth)

  5. Kadie Says:

    Kyla is my fav here. Especially the make up. Jordyn would have been my fav, but when you do a dark eye, with a dark lip, when you have pale skin, it’s too much makeup!!

    Guhhhh aly. She figure looks boxy, and then wrapped in crappy Christmas wrapping paper. Her hair should have been in a high bun, so as not to ompete with that busy pattern.

    Yessss!! Mckayla looks like he was wearing pj’s!

    Gabby…. I don’t even know how to comment on the Liza Minnelli hall of fame ensemble….

  6. JAS4 Says:

    I think Kyla and Jordyn were my favorites if McKayla and Aly switched shoes it would have been slightly better I think Gabby and Aly just needed more age appropriate dresses both of theirs seemed a little to old for them

  7. sainabou nyang Says:

    Wow I forgot about John Orozco. That’s what happens when you don’t win a medal. USAgym didn’t even mention him being at the VMAs. I figured he would since he was in that music video.
    GTT I didn’t see him but I doubt he had seats as good as the Fab 5.

    VMAs were as boring as usual and fixed. You notice only the newbies get excited about winning a moonman but the veterans could care less or they pretend to be happy. Everyone knows a Grammy is the top prize.

  8. sainabou nyang Says:

    That review from IG makes me laugh. They are trying too hard to hype up this tour. In one of the pics it looks like Chris Brooks staring Nastia down whil she stretches.

  9. Surfergirl Says:

    OMG, OMG, OMG…Gabby is writing a memoir.

    (from http://www.justjaredjr.com) ” It was just announced just yesterday (via People) that Gabby, 16, will be writing a memoir!
    To be titled “Grace, Gold and Glory, My Leap of Faith,” the book will chronicle Gabby‘s early life, how she left her family in Virginia at age 12 to train 3,000 miles away and her path to gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics. ”

    I feel ill.

    • Guest Says:

      I think it is just a somebody writing a story of her with her permission more than she writes a memoir by herself. I don’t think Gabby has enough writing ability and life experience to do that.

      • Lissa Says:

        Yes, it’s not surprising. Most gymnasts who have had any success will quickly put out an “autobiography.” Be assured it will say “by Gabrielle Douglas & Somebody,” and Somebody will no doubt be doing all the writing. These things come out all the time. They are shallow, hollow pieces of work designed to make money and little else. I actually don’t blame Gabby for agreeing to this, though, because everyone does it. I just won’t be too interested in reading it.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Nastia didn’t write a book did she? Gag. How boring would that be.

        If Gabby were authoring her book it’d have a billion “you know” in the prose. Bleck.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        You are right. Nastia never did write a book. Weird. I am sure her fame whoring self would have been all over it.lol

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        Carly Patterson didn’t write a book either… Does Nastia even know how to write?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        lol She got into NYU. She has to be able to write at the very least.

    • Lissa Says:

      Wait, Gabby left her family in Virginia at age 12? I thought she was 14. If she hadn’t already proven herself prone to exaggeration, I would think this was a mistake by the blog author. But is this something she said? Are they trying to make her move to Chow’s more dramatic by lowering her age? (It still kills me that anyone thinks a gymnast leaving home to train and staying with a host family is at all unusual in elite gymnastics). It used to be unusual if a gymnast got to live at home with both her parents. But the media makes it into such a big story that Gabby left home to train. This is not a rare thing in elite.

      • Lissa Says:

        I should add that Virginia is not 3,000 miles away from Iowa. It is less than 1,000. I don’t get it. Why the need for the little lies and exaggerations all the time? It’s so unnecessary and just turns people off.

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        Just more proof gabby cant count or do math

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        lol or talk without laughing like a hyena.

      • terrigymfan Says:

        Gabby would be even more screwed up IMO if she hadn’t left home for Iowa and stayed with a normal family for once. It was interesting that on one of the talk shows someone asked her how it was staying with a host family. She said it as great because if she got mad at her real family she could just go off to her host family. She tried to laugh when she said it but I think it was Shakespeare who said, “Many a truth was said in jest.”

  10. sainabou nyang Says:

    Gabby has a second book in the works as well. The second one is supposed to be more detailed.

  11. sainabou nyang Says:


  12. sanitynmotion Says:

    I guess if you can’t get a major brand to endorse you, your next best hope is endorsing yourself via a book deal. Says a lot, actually. If that book doesn’t come out soon nobody will be wanting to buy it – I think Gabby’s “hype” will be over shortly.

  13. sanitynmotion Says:

    Oh, and if I had a grandma that was still alive and chose to wear what Gabby wore, I’d scream and run in the other direction.

    I hated Jo’s dress at first but the more I see it the more it kind of grows on me. I still feel like she covered her figure a bit too much though.

    Still love how Kyla looks perfect, sans a stylist, yet her teammates can’t manage to do the same.

    Totally agree about McKayla’s dress color. On TV, they tell you never to wear those muted type of tones (unless you have Gabby’s skin color). It just washes you out.

    I don’t know if Aly was going for something more “daring” or different, but her fashion sense so far is not impressive. Gag on this dress, and gag on the other crap she was wearing that wasn’t Ralph Lauren.

  14. Exgymgurl Says:

    Why doesn’t Ralph Lauren step up and dress mckayla and Aly?

    • Biyatch Says:

      Aly’s dress was by Badgley Mischka. She picked it herself, no stylist. I love Aly and wanted to like it but because her shoulders are so muscular the shapeless dress just makes her look large in most photographs which of course she isn’t. Judging from some of the other dresses she’s worn, it seems like she might not be so comfortable with sleeveless dresses or super fitted. I wish she would pick something A-line though to best maximize the athletic build.

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        It doesn’t Matter WHO made the dress if it’s a bad fit….Right now she could pick just about anything as a loan and she picks that? She’d be better off getting a cheapie from Walmart if it was flattering and fit right…. Annoying

  15. sainabou nyang Says:

    Having a stylist is a must for some people. But others instinctly know what looks good on them and what doesnt.

  16. sainabou nyang Says:

    Aww Nastia and Chelsie are the best of friends. I’ve never seen a more evil smile than in this pic.

    Anna Li ‏@AnnaLi_88
    Getting ready for our final run through!!! http://instagr.am/p/PS6RBhl7C7/

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      gag me:) and really, a blurry picture?

    • DL Says:

      All I see is forehead.

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        That’s the BEST picture ever….. It’s like NASTIA was shooting evil light bending heat rays from her eyes for having to be near these two..Chellsie looks like the Wednesday Adams smile after the happy hut…Ana Li even gets along with everyone… I bet she was team mom at UCLA that everyone liked… Because she even roomed with Gabby

  17. Biyatch Says:

    There were a lot of twitter pix of the bus groups, no Nastia in sight. I wonder if she demanded her own bus.

    Also I know her forehead has always been a focal point, but I swear it looks as if there have been a couple of botox injections in there. (Actually probs more then a couple, theres a lot of forehead so you might need more then the standard number of shots.

    • Case Says:

      Yeah I was trying to figure out if Nastia was on the old has beens bus or if she weasel edger way onto the bus with the Fierce Five.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      They probably fly her to every city with her fake choreographer label on this tour.

      • sainabou nyang Says:

        I bet they hired a real choreographer but Nastia will get the credit.

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        Nastias forehead looks VERY botoxed, and she also looks like there’s been some Restalin…very clay like …. Ughhh… Have to say let her take credit for this it looks craptastical…

    • hurms22 Says:

      I feel like Sac is excluding her so she hangs with the younger kids. She seems to have pissed off everybody lol. The fact that Becca is on the bus with the older cast members and Nastia wasn’t says a lot. Even if I were her and trying to fame whore myself I wouldn’t wanna be stuck on a bus with a bunch of teenagers.

  18. sainabou nyang Says:


    An interesting pic of Ana Porgras. I almost didn’t recognize her with the blond hair and high heels. I wonder if she’ll go the route Milosevic did.Shes never really said why she retired although some say it was nagging injuries but now I wonder..

    • catherine Says:

      That the one of her lying down in a field? There was a big fuss about it because it was lifted off her Facebook but it was public and in pretty sure people have shite all rights to their Facebook photos so mehh.

      Much as I loved her gymnastics, as long as she’s happy then whenever. Word is she wasn’t happy with bellu and bitang and very fed up with injuries.

      • Kazic Says:

        Catherine, that pic of her lying down in a field was the best thing ever. I died. Ever since she suddenly quit everyone was like, is she ok? Then that pic appears. I said to myself, oh yeah she’s fine. That girl isn’t thinking about gymnastics. Though I was sad to see her stop, for her to take off the year before an Olympics, she must have been extremely unhappy. I heard Belu and Bitang begged her to stay. Whatever she’s does I hope she’s happy. He did you guys know Ponor has a twitter? It’s legitly her.

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      It’s Ana Porgras: fake boobed porn star in training…. Pierced tongue and all….

  19. Biyatch Says:

    Kellogg’s Tour of Champions pix… https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150900604657168.361620.27029627167&type=1

    Not sure if they were intentionally going for the stripper and skank look or if it just happened by accident.

    • gymnastwannabe Says:

      I just looked through the photos on USAG facebook page myself… SOOO not impressed. These girls look like models for soft porn. Aren’t there enough creeps following them on twitter?

    • sainabou nyang Says:

      Damn Jake Dalton looks yummy. I don’t care about the girls just show the guys all nicely oiled up.

      I can’t wait to watch this cluster f**k on you tube. From Nastia and her pussy cat doll burlesque cirque de soliel to Johnathan Horton doing hip hop dance moves.

    • mim Says:

      honestly the costumer/stylist should be sacked. tackiest costumes!

  20. JAS4 Says:

    My guess is that after the tour or sometime this quad Nastia is going to announce that she has decided to do rhythmic gymnastics

    • sainabou nyang Says:

      She better become friends wity Julie zetlin. Oh wait asac already is.

      Nastia certainly has the flexibility fir rhythmic but she needs to get some rhythm. Rhythmic is supposed to be dominated by the Russians so it would be perfect for her.

      • mim Says:

        i think julie has a bit of a girl crush on asac.

      • Kazic Says:

        I think the girl crush is mutual. Everyone loves Asac. Even Aliya Mustafina.

        I think Julie and Aly have been chilling together. They are both jewish too.

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      Nastia is not flexible enough for Rythmic, and I don’t even think she’s that arrogant…. Maybe….this tour has too many people and doesn’t look fun at all…. Cirque de Soleil would be better even the one in LA with Rav Bhavasjar or whatever her name is……

      What elite gym was Cassie Whitcomb with? Oh yeah May Lee Tracy broke her. I used to blame the coaches for breaking these athletes…. The last quad where no one was seriously broken was 1996…… Breaking started with Morgan in 2000…. I think it’s Marta LOL

  21. Catherine Says:

    Apparently there is going to be actual bars routines at least- there’s photos of Becca doing a shap, But it looks like it’s going to be dominated by cheap outfits and lame choreo.

  22. mim Says:

    the costumes the “fierce 5” girls are wearing when hanging on the olympic rings are so tacky and gross. they look like baby strippers.

    • Catherine Says:

      The cut out at the front apparently is flesh-coloured, not open. Still, tacky. If they had each been in leotards of one colour of the Olympic rings it would have been much more effective AND appropriate. They can dress as young and revealing as they want on their own time, but for appearances like this the producers have to remember how old they are minus Aly and keep in mind how old their fans are.

      • Gymbee Says:

        Yeah noticed that, after watching a close-out. I showed my husband the photos and he goes “omg are they wearing bras?”. Agreed, a single-coloured leo in the olympic colours would’ve been better than that weird bra leo.

  23. Sjo Says:

    Were there gymnastic routines being performed at the tour??? From looking at the pictures, it look like a mini teenage strip show.

  24. Catherine Says:

    This one is funny, the guys give a bit of a show on the rings and the girls just sit there. It’ll be interesting when it’s on YT in full.
