Every gymnast – with their hair scrunchies and tiny, compact bodies – looks like a little kid, but some on the Chinese team might actually be just hitting puberty. Buzz is brewing that three members of the gold medal-winning group might be under the age of sixteen – the cutoff for gymnasts in the Olympics. Jiang Yuyuan, Yang Yilin and He Kexin are all currently under scrutiny in the press, and The Huffington Post has published documents seem to show at least one of them, He Kexin, is just fourteen years old. But what we here at Scandalist want to know is: Do you really need documents to determine that these kids are under sixteen? The girls as basically flaunting the proof. Let’s run it down for you:
- Sparkly, star-shaped hair clips.
- Candy-colored blue and pink eye shadow.
- Sparkly hair spray coating their tiny heads.
- In conclusion: sparkles.
Don’t believe us? Pour over the pics below. They’re babies, we tell you. Babies! Babies draped in gold medals!

Hollywood’s skankiest came out last night for the opening of the new Apple Lounge, and the lady-on-lady couplings were in full effect. Scandalist fave Lindsay Lohan cropped topped her way on the red carpet to join Samantha Ronson, while camera-hog Tila Tequila showed up with her current gal pal and LiLo ex, Courtenay Semel. We’ve got both of the penis-free pairs below – feel free to pick a favorite to obsess over. (Are crop tops going to be a trend? Someone let us know so we can order an ab buster to hide in our closet.)

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi are walking down the aisle this weekend to become wife and wife, so run out and overnight those toaster-ovens to LA! The super-couple have been dating since 2004, and announced their plans to wed soon after marriage became legal for gay couples in California this years. Hurray for laws! Ellen said of her future wife, “She’s taught me lessons about myself, and I feel like I’ve taught her.”
Awwwww-dorable. There’s no word on if one of the brides will take the other’s last name; our preference would be some sort of hybrid, like Ellen and Portia DeDe Generossi. We’re totally cool with them stealing that one from us. [Us]
Currently, the most important man in America is not Barack Obama, John McCain or Spencer Pratt – it is Michael Phelps, the beefy Olympic swimmer with giant ears that rival only his shoulder muscles in size. The entire country has tuned in to watch him pocket gold medals in Beijing, and his talent is obviously undeniable. Not to mention, he’s kinda hot in that attainable famous dude, sorta way. But is he also a pro at hurling ping pong balls into cups of keg beer? We came across this pic on a blog today that supposedly captures Phelps getting ready to conquer a serious round of beer pong. Not that he’s not allowed – the dude is 23-years old, and he already has a DUI under his belt that resulted in 18 months probation when he was 19-years old. It’s nice to know that Phelps may be involved in something even wilder than shaving all his body hair.
The pic has since been taken down, but we got it above. Does that look like the gold medal champ to you?
Well what do you know? That crazy old lady chef that you probably secretly loved to watch on PBS as a kid was a spy! Julia Child, who is like the most famous TV chef in the world (even though she died in 2004), was a member of an “international spy ring managed by the Office of Strategic Services, an early version of the CIA created in World War II by President Franklin Roosevelt.”
Seriously, that is some hot sh*t right there. A bunch of other famous old people were hooked into the secret network, and they “studied military plans, created propaganda, infiltrated enemy ranks and stirred resistance among foreign troops” during World War II. And to think, we thought Julia was just into stirring delicious French stews. [AP]

Contrary to rumors that have been staining the pure lil’ world wide web, Paris Hilton and Benji Madden are not broken up. Look – here they are at Nobu 57 in New York City on Tuesday night! See they are totally together – just really f*cking sick of each other.
A bunch of tabloids are sick of talking about the Brangelina twins and have focused their attention on another pair – Ali Lohan‘s breasts. Nevermind that the kid is fourteen awkward years old, rags such as Us Weekly are encouraging us all to ponder if her tweenage titties are real or fake. Let’s take a minute to all shudder together. We may be nosy gossip hounds, but we are not pervs, nor are we interested in ruining this kid’s life any further – her mom has already done enough of that. No one escapes puberty unscathed, but Ali is basically f*cked from her life in the (horny) public eye. But you don’t need us to tell you, just listen to her big sister Lindsay! Check out what she wrote on her Myspace Celebrity blog – who knew LiLo knew big words like “disconcerting?!”
i just had to share something that came up today and it made me feel a bit sick to my stomach.
so, here’s the visual…me and my friend Patrick walking into a store, and two paparazzi come up out of nowhere (like usual) and start throwing questions at me…one of them being, “Hey Lindsay, what do you have to say about people commenting on your sisters implants?”
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!my response simply was, “Did you really just ask me that? She is a 14 year old girl, and you are a pedophile!”i was caught out of nowhere so i didn’t really come up with the proper response at the time.. there’s many other things that i felt like saying, but why give it to a random guy with a camera so that he can make money!All i am trying to say is, is that, i was raised with a wonderful family surrounding me, of course we have our ups and downs, but all in all my mother taught us to appreciate what we have been given. Nor would she ever encourage, or allow a 14 year old child to alter her body.i am not judging people that do, but i am just saying that its not something that my family finds necessary to do, especially when you’re not even fully developed yet!It is hard enough being 14 years old and you have enough insecurities to begin with, then add being in the public eye… i just find it really disconcerting that people have to focus on the negative and that some people are sooooo bored with their own lives that they need to manifest lies to hurt another person.
in a more positive light…
i got some great clothes from alexander wang and i miss samantha cuz she’s out of town
have a wonderful day everyone~
til next time..

It’s been over three years since Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes slowly and truthfully fell into a deep and everlasting love, and Scandalist is here to honor their commitment to love and support each other’s craziness with a photo tribute. We’ve poured over 63 pages of TomKat pics, desperately hunting for images of the pair in their favorite, infamous pose – Tom dragging Katie behind him like a show dog on a leash because she is clearly unable to walk on her own.
Nothing says love like Tom tightly gripping on Katie’s wrist as she slowly floats behind him flaunting a $8000 dress and dead eyes. It’s so romantic! Travel back in time below – from 2005 to Monday of this week – and experience their awkward, forced loved all over again.
