First Look at Aly Raisman on Dancing with the stars

Shannon Miller will be on Katie tomorrow and the Doctors. Surprised USA-Gymnastics had the time to spend even writing this but don’t worry, it is almost knocked off their front page. Back to their usual Bull shit.

Shannon also did some running for something thing with the two most obnoxious people in sports. How does Nastia go to school full time when she seems to never be and Shannon, for the love of God you hang out with the Michelle Kwan’s the world not those two. Really Shannon, really.

Their Official Site

Aly interview. She talks about how DWTS will help her floor routine.

Aly will be competing at the Maccabiah Games. Info came from,Biyatch in comment section. Found this article.

This must be what Aly was talking about on twitter when she saw the Papazzazi In If anyone wants to hire me I could stalk Aly for you. I have access to Needham Mass:) I’ve got a nice camera too.


When did Aly become so outgoing????

Thanks to H, here is Aly on Access Hollywood

Aly’s web show, episode 7

This is kind of cool to watch too. Its Aly doing her floor routine and the differences between 2011 and 2012.


Here are both of Beth Tweddle’s routines from Dancing on Ice with the finals results that were not shown in the other video.

    Go Aly:-)

  2. GymMom Says:

    Nice post GTT. Aly is really blossoming! She seems like one of those kids who steps up to whatever challenge is put before her & gives it her all.

  3. Biyatch Says:

    Did yall see the article that Aly will be COMPETING (yes competing and not just attending) the Maccabiah games (like a mini-Olympics for members of the tribe) in the middle of July. Thought it was interesting as shes not training at all now so to be ready to do anything then just seems to be pushing it. Granted as Im pretty sure shell be going up against a bunch of level 9/10s she could probably win with her floor from tour and throwing yurchenko timers.

  4. GymMom Says:

    In checking several betting sites, Aly is consistently picked to win DWTS on all of them. She is described as an “early favorite.” They’re usually right.

  5. GymMom Says:

    Aly was supposed to give a talk at her former middle school last Friday but it was postponed due to the weather. She tweeted she was going to be there on Monday, so the paps picked up on that & covered her visit. She looked really nice & definitely in great shape!

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      We have had a lot of snow here recently. More than we deserve

      • GymMom Says:

        Yeah…my sister lives in Marblehead & she is over the snow! Ha ha

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I am with your sister on the

        Good news is I don’t work Fridays or Saturdays and this year the two big snow days came on either of those days.

  6. Biyatch Says:

    Parade magazine estimated that Gabby earned $10.25 million last year… I have no doubt that she made bank but that seems mighty high.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      How? That makes no sense. She has nothing to show for it but one deal with Nintendo. They estimated

      The black community didn’t even embrace her. She had a few tweets from some black celebrities but even they saw through what a phony she had become.

      • GymMom Says:

        Yeah Gabby’s Twitter TL is pretty empty of any celebrity tweets. She didn’t even break a million dollars, much less $10 million.

      • Short1 Says:

        Celebrity net worth’s website lists a figure of $3 million (whether that is accurate or not, I have no idea).

        *Please disregard my first post, I typed in the wrong name!

      • sainabou nyang Says:

        Its no surprise. Gymnastics in the black community is not as popular as basketball or football.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        They supported Dawes after 96. She was way more accepted than Gabby has been.

    • GymMom Says:

      That was an estimate of her earnings right after she won her gold medal. It’s not what she earned.

      • terrigymfan Says:

        Those “estimates” put out right after someone has done something big in athletics about how much they are going to make always grossly exaggerate.

  7. Catherine Says:

    GTT, what do you think of Beth’s skating? She seems to me with my complete lack of knowledge to be technically very good and daring, but quite wooden in her routines, some more than others. You can kinda tell she’s thinking ohh shit I hope I don’t mess up sometimes. Not that that’s awful or anything, she hasn’t been skating very long obviously. I expected a raging diatribe about how awful she is on aunt Joyce as they have compared her floor routine to a horse trotting around a paddock before…but never found anything, yet. Anyway, I was really impressed with Beth but I’ve no knowledge of the sport.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      She improved as she went along. She isn’t great but all you can ask is that someone takes the advice she was given and listens and she did that.

      I think she might have been a better skater than gymnast if she had trained for that sport because it is obvious her gym coach never trained her in dance.

  8. nero Says:

    The gymternet is so fickle. A year ago Aly was the little engine that could and while everyone didn’t like her gymnastics they appreciated her work ethic and sportsmanship. And all of a sudden it’s like ‘pick on Aly’ for deciding to do DWTS.

    I hate that she got Mark, because I feel the show will try to package her as Shawn 2.0. In fact I’m sure Shawn will be front row and center mugging for the camera every week.

    I’m pretty over people who are offended by what teenage girls decide to do with their personal lives after they achieve Olympic glory. If they go back to the gym, great. If they don’t WHO CARES! People act like these girls murdered their cats if they don’t decide to go back to the gym.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Well said.

    • Gymbee Says:

      People are really picking on her for doing it? That sucks. As long as she is excited to do it, why do ppl care?

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      I think it’s great she’s doing it if she’s excited about it. Good for her! I mean hell she has another 3 years to get back to the gym; and we all saw from ASac’s comeback that maybe it’s better to wait an extra year and forego a bad-timed injury.

      And I agree – if they don’t come back to the gym sure I’m bummed because I like them and I like seeing them compete, but I don’t run their lives nor make their decisions. The sport has such a small window of opportunity and Marta is such a b*tch I can’t blame them for not wanting to come back and put up with that sh*t.

  9. terrigymfan Says:

    Ali doing that British accent is so funny. It sounds pretty realistic to me. I’ve seen her do it before. I would love to hear what Brits think of it.

    • Catherine Says:

      Not British but very familiar and the one she did before was okay but she totally lost it and went Jamaican on some words. I can’t watch this video, not available, but I doubt its much better. Still better than a lot of put on British accents all the same.

    • Gymbee Says:

      From that other video I saw, it was pretty good🙂 could tell she wasn’t Brit though cause of the Jamaican sneaking in like Catherine said! Hehe. I like Aly.

  10. exgymgurl Says:

    Chellsie and Chelle Stack were judges for the secret junior international elite camp headed by Valeri Piuking….. so now Chelle who has that awesome leaked unpublished book out there, and Chellsie, are promoting the girls into elite that Marta wants… interesting

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Its called being a sell out. I have lost all respect I had for Chellsie Memmel and I used to have a lot of respect for her. Its over.

      • mim Says:

        I would guess it’s a “keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer” type situations.. better to be on the inside to facilitate change than trying to change from outside the system.

        that’s what i’ll tell myself anyway because i can’t bare to think of chellsie full on selling her soul to USAG.

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        What gets me on this is chelle stack. I mean does marta / liukin put them in a room before hand and say okay these people qualify and these people dont? Getting to say who is / isnt elite qualified and judging thay is powerful. Chelle Stack hates the karolyis too or claims to. I just dont get it but I guess business is business. Why have every possible name there at the ranch? I saw an interview with the 2004 romanian coach who said you start the quad with three times the number you need for a team and two alternates. By the time the olympics hit you have only the best girls and a few alternates left.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I am sure it is not that

        My boss has a way of getting me to do what she wants without coming out and saying it. Don’t think so a second Marta doesn’t know how to manipulate.

      • exgymgurl Says:

        True…. I’m certain both Chellsie and Chelle are so brainwashed to Martas ideal in terms of looking at elites that they will all pick the same people. Chellsie tweeted about getting to know the athletes. Since when do athletes you are judging become your friends? Wierd…

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I would think not getting to know the athletes would be better plus how the hell can we trust Memmel to choose friends? Nastia, Alicia? I mean really. She is friends with the biggest hypocrites in the sport.

  11. JAS4 Says:

    It’s obvious that now USAG is offering jobs to any gymnast that would have a reason to write a tell all as a means to buy them off lol if only one of them would write a tell all and not be bought by USAG I’m surprised they never offered Dom M. a job or maybe they did and she refused although if that were the case we would have probably heard about them trying to buy her off by now lol

  12. terrigymfan Says:

    I personally don’t think Chellsie is selling out. She is in a difficult position. She is obviously interested in judging and wants to stay involved in elite gymnastics and the only way to do that is to pay her dues and judge at events where Marta is involved. The problem is Marta casts her shadow over everything in elite gymnastics. So you are going to have be associated with Marta in some way – and have her tacit blessing – or you have get out of the sport altogether. Marta won’t be around forever. I’d rather see good people like Chellsie stay in the sport even if they have to keep their mouth shut than leave it to just the scoundrels.

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      Yeah and Chellsie also has her dad’s business to think about. Maybe when Marta and Bella live out their lives she’ll release a tell-all or something. And then it will be followed by ASac, Shawn, and Nastia will be the Kim Zmeskal type who sits around and refutes all what the other girls say – meanwhile, she’ll be going for running USAG and keeping up with the Marta tradition. Oy. I can see this now.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      That is the definition of a sell out. Chellsie wants to be a judge and she is selling her soul by kissing USA-Gymnastics butts for this very reason. Hate to break it to you but that is exactly what a sell out is.

      Hey we all do it but what we all don’t do is play the victim. Chellsie played the victim and then people tried to help her and she sold their genuine feelings for a judging job.

      Don’t get me wrong I understand why she did it. I really do but I think about how hard everyone worked to call out Marta FOR Chellsie and how in the end she cared more about herself it is just annoying but I am pretty sure most of us would do the same thing.

      • terrigymfan Says:

        GTT I just have to disagree with you a little here. I don’t remember Chellsie playing the victim that much. Sure she was ticked about what happened to her and said so but she didn’t go on and on about it. Also, I don’t think she asked that people start a petition for reconsideration. She was happy when she learned what her fans were doing for her but it was somebody else’s idea. I signed the petition too but don’t think she owes it to me anybody else to sacrifice her aspirations to be a judge (apparently something she wants to do) by maintaining animosity towards Marta. Now if she starts hobknobbing with Marta and Steve Penney that’s a different story but I haven’t seen that yet.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        We can disagree but I say she played the victim. She went on that guys radio show and behind the scenes I heard she was very upset about the petition not being accepted.

        I deal with things differently than Chellsie. When I am screwed I don’t play the victim I play the Silent assassin. I guess joining the ranks would be a way and we will see if she does anything but I doubt it.

        Chellsie does owe the people that tried to help her something. She owes them honesty. She didn’t ask for the petition to be made but it sure was passed around her gym. I know that for a fact.

  13. Uglyfatkid Says:

    Holy hell…Ali was actually pretty charming in those videos. No robot stiffness, no monotone voice, no awkward posture. Yay!! I adore Ali, and am glad to see that she is loosening up some in front of the camera. I may have up watch DWTS this season. Well, not all of it…thank heavens for DVR. I hate when they stretch out reality shows, when we all know the could cut out half the show and we still wouldn’t miss anything. 🙂

    I bet Alicia Sacramone is very very jealous about now. Her mother Gail is probably beside herself
