I think Jordyn, Mac and Aly are legitimately friends. There was enough evidence of their friendship far before London and the “were all bff party line.” Kyla’s relationship with Mac and that she has traveled with Aly and Jo a ton internationally (PanAms ’09, PacRims ’10, Jesolo) probably made it easy for her to fall in with the group. Gabby definitely appeared to be the outsider of the group.
The coat is obviously her way of hiding her mid-section.
I honestly kind of feel bad for her; she hasn’t grown much since Beijing (I think she’s still under 5 feet) and weight gain was inevitable given she used to work out what – 6 hours a day, 6 days a week? She probably easily gained 10 pounds, which looks like 20-25 pounds on anyone of average height. Plus look at her genes; she has her mom’s build and her mom is, to put it bluntly, fat.
AND she’s in college and likely having a beverage (or 10) now and then. It’ll be hard for her during the next few years to even be remotely slim.
I’m the same height as Shawn. I’ve had 2 pregnancies and I’m 54 years old. If I can keep my weight down, so can Shawn. Wait until she gets older & her metabolism decreases. If she wants to be an example/spokesperson for Nike etc., she needs to get serious about getting in shape. Working out and then eating & drinking cancels any benefits. Like I’ve stated previously, Shawn has the best workout clothing/shoes; access to trainers & training programs & can afford to eat the best organic foods out there. If she can’t make it work with all that, there’s something wrong. Hiding behind gymnasts modeling leos she designed looks ridiculous! She should and could be modeling the leos herself.
