Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross screamed, cheered, cried and thrust their index fingers in the air as the crowd chanted U-S-A! U-S-A!

Coming up on Thursday is the Women's Gymnastics Individual All-Around.  Qualifiers from Team USA are Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman.

After hours of interviews the girls have finally returned to their Olympic Village dorm for the night.  Here is what they tweeted:

katie couric dating john molner from brown brothers harriman

Katie Couric is dating financier John Molner, head of mergers and acquisitions at investment bank and securities firm Brown Brothers Harriman in New York.

Seven months after splitting with her boyfriend of five years, Brooks Perlin, who is 17 years her junior, Couric, 55, made her first public appearance with Molner, 49, at Saturday's Ellen Hermanson Breast Cancer Benefit.

“Katie looked better than ever and, clearly in love, did her best to keep her relationship with John low-key. She was careful not to be photographed with him, but they were clearly together. They looked good together and other guests remarked that he seemed a more age-appropriate match," a guest tells Page Six.

Another witness says Couric and Molner were "kissing in the driveway before driving away together."

According to sources, the two began dating a few months ago after being introduced by friends and are "very happy together."

Couric's new talk show, Katie, premieres September 10.

kardashian show a hit on own

Good news on the OWN front.  The network that Oprah Winfrey started on January 1, 2011 should become profitable during the back-half of 2013 according to her Discovery partner, CEO David Zaslav.

During this week's earnings conference between Harpo Productions and Discovery, it was revealed that ratings are up 25 percent year-to-date.

The core audience is comprised of women 25-54 who hang on O's every word.  Viewers are getting more face time with the network founder as she continues to crank out a series of high-profile interviews for her popular series 'Oprah's Next Chapter.'

Winfrey's third most viewed interview since OWN first hit the airwaves is the recent two-part Kardashian family chat.

The good news is that billionaire O has deep pockets and can withstand operating in the red for another year.

U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte hit Twitter Monday after finishing a disappointing fourth in the men's 200m freestyle to chat with his followers.

Lochte tweeted, "Not so happy about that swim tonight... you live and learn.  Tomorrow I will be better."

He added two hours later, "The greatest athletes suffer the hardest defeats before the biggest and best moments of their life.... God has a plan for everyone."

Then he offered up a few cryptic tweets after warning, "I'm going to take a ten minute Olympic break to tweet some weird tweets to u all.  Just different."

The last two tweets are snippets taken from the 'Fire Flame Remix' by Birdman featuring Lil Wayne.


He told a reporter this morning, "Whatever happened last night, happened last night.  You have to get over it and move on.  I have a couple more races left.  Just have to forget about it and move on."


His next swim is the men's 4x200-meter relay later today.  Wednesday he and Michael Phelps will compete in the prelim and semifinal heats in the 200m individual medley.  That final is Thursday night.


Lochte tweeted Tuesday morning, "Ready to take it on today.  Let's get it. #TeamUSA."

bruce and kris jenner

Kris Jenner and her family will do just about anything for ratings on their E! reality show 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' but have they finally taken the scripted drama too far?

The latest saga attempted to discover the level of love, honesty and commitment Kris Jenner has for husband Bruce Jenner with the help of her old flame Todd Waterman.

A secret meeting between Kris and Todd starts off at a restaurant where her former lover suggests they find a more private place to continue their meeting.  Did we mention that a camera crew is filming the supposed tryst?  Yep.

Kris declines the offer because she's just not feeling the sparks.  After dinner Kris admits, "I think that this dinner has taught me a lot of things.  And it's nice to know that I made the right decision, and I'm just really glad that I'm going home to Bruce Jenner."  Are you nauseated yet?

At home she tells Bruce about the meeting and gushes about how much she appreciates him.  Bruce is furious and rants, "Explain to me why you saw this a**hole … what an idiot you are! I don't even know how I can trust you -- I can't believe you did this!"  This was being said while daughter Kylie hovers nearby.

Kourtney, Kim and Khloe pretend to be outraged and insist she take a lie detector test.  "We know that we're playing with fire and we might not want to know some of the real answers to these questions," Kourtney said. "But if she really has nothing to hide, she shouldn't be worried about answering them."

Kris passes with flying colors and boasts, "Hopefully, my family will realize that I've been telling the truth all along, and they'll leave me alone."

Bruce and Kris head off on a romantic getaway to Malibu to rekindle their romance so they can share it with you next Sunday.

So ends this segment of Kardashian "reality" drama.  Carry on.

bret michaels and kristi gibson split

Bret Michaels and Kristi Gibson are no longer engaged.  According to his rep, the couple have decided to end their 18-year relationship and are no longer together.

The rocker, 49, proposed to his longtime girlfriend in December 2010, an event that was filmed for the finale of his VH1 show 'Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.'

Michaels' enjoyed a career boost in 2010 after he appeared on the NBC reality show 'Celebrity Apprentice 3' and won the title.

It was during the hiatus between filming the episodes and the live finale that the singer suffered a series of medical emergencies; an appendectomy followed by a near-fatal brain hemorrhage and stroke.

Gibson, 41, the mother of his two children, Raine Elizabeth, 12, and Jorja Bleu, 7, stood by his side during his ailments and not long afterward accepted an engagement ring.

kristen stewart and rupert sanders having dinner in berlin on ma

Despite Kristen Stewart's claim that her tryst with married director Rupert Sanders was a "momentary indiscretion," sources are saying the affair went on for months before it became public.

Pictures have emerged of the two looking cozy in a restaurant in Berlin on May 15, and Rupert's wife, Liberty Ross, believes the affair began during the filming of "Snow White and the Huntsman" last year.

"It was from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week" says Liberty's younger brother, Leopold.

Sources close to Stewart claim the affair may have stemmed from her jealousy over boyfriend Robert Pattinson's friendship with his "Remember" co-star, Emilie de Ravin. Robert and the former "Lost" actress remained friends after filming in 2009, and Kristen "found it difficult to cope with Robert being close friends with another woman."

“Nothing romantic ever happened between them but it didn’t make Kristen feel any better about them being so close. Emilie was at a very low ebb. She was going through a split and she and Robert made one another laugh," says a source.

Pattison moved out of the Hollywood home he shared with Stewart just days after a series of photos surfaced of the actress and her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director making out in various spots in Los Angeles on July 17.

Kristen has also vacated the residence and despite a very public apology, Robert is refusing to speak to her, which is a serious concern for Twilight bosses who are releasing the final movie in the saga in the fall.

“There’s serious concern about the promotional tour, which is set to kick off in October. Robert won’t see Kristen and is refusing to do any joint personal appearances with her. This is a potential nightmare for all involved."

Stewart and Pattinson are also scheduled to be co-presenters at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 6.

UPDATE: According to PEOPLE magazine, quotes from the British newspaper The People (not affiliated with PEOPLE magazine) attributed to the brother of Liberty Ross were fabricated, however, editors for The People stand by their story.

Regardless, Stewart and Pattinson certainly look chummy in these photos taken May 15th in Berlin.

brandi glanville denies bathroom sex

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Brandi Glanville was caught having sex in a bathroom at Kyle Richards' annual White Party, according to sources.

"Brandi was in the bathroom with a guy having sex when the girls caught her," multiple sources tell RadarOnline, saying they heard explicit noises coming through the bathroom door.

According to the sources, Brandi's co-stars were stunned, and the Bravo reality show crew thought it was "hilarious and would really make for great TV."

Brandi has become notorious for her bad girl antics both on and off air.

When asked about her bathroom tryst on Twitter, she denied having sex, but says there was a "hot steamy kiss," continuing with "we have been dating ever since."

gabby douglas tweets from london

Gabrielle Douglas, 16, tweeted from the London Games last night after qualifying for the women's all-around finals.

Also making the cut was her 18-year-old teammate Alexandra Raisman.  The duo will not only compete for team glory but have earned the opportunity to medal individually in each of the Olympic gymnastic events.

In a shocking turn of events, highly-favored Jordyn Wieber, 17, left the floor in tears after failing to advance to the individual finals.  She'll still get a chance to win gold in the team competition but the heartbreak was fresh when she posted a photo collage on Twitter and remarked: "It's hard to explain these feelings."

Douglas got a Twitter shout-out from Olympic gymnastics legend Nadia Comaneci, the Romanian girl who earned the first 'Perfect 10' during the Montreal Games in 1976:

The no-nonsense U.S. Gymnastics coach Martha Karolyi simply shrugged her shoulders over Wieber's rough day.  She said, "I'm very sad, but I'm very happy about the other girls.  Hard work pays off ... we support Jordyn, but things happen."


Other team members include McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross and alternates Sarah Finnegan, Anna Li and Elizabeth Price.


One thing is certain, Team USA will need Jordyn Wieber to come back strong if they hope to collect a gold medal on Tuesday.  Go Team USA!


UPDATE: August 2, 2012 ... Gabby Douglas won GOLD in the Women's Gymnastics All-Around.  Check out the last thing she tweeted before heading out this morning in London:
