McKayla Maroney is finally getting her chance to catch up with fellow Olympic breakout stars Gabby Douglas and Ryan Lochte. The gymnast will be guest-starring on the CW’s Hart of Dixie this fall, the network announced yesterday.
“In the episode, Maroney will guest star as Tonya, a friend of Rose’s (played by recurring guest
star McKaley Miller), who comes to Rose’s defense,” a press release from the CW says. (That’s McKayley on the far left in the photo above, btw.) McKayla still hasn’t returned to the Kellogg’s Tour of Women’s Gymnastics since injuring herself on the uneven bars earlier this month. This seems like a pretty good way of keeping busy while she recovers.
For those of you not familiar with the adorable Hart of Dixie, it stars O.C. alum Rachel Bilson as a cardio-thoracic surgeon who winds up giving up her New York City life for the quirks of a small town in Alabama. It’s as renowned for its great fashion as its cute story lines, so we get the feeling this will be a super-fun shoot for McKayla. It’s no chance to have Ian Somerhalder eat your gold medal, mind you (we are still dying of jealousy after that pic of Gabby on the Vampire Diaries set), but we’re excited for her nonetheless.
And see how I wrote this entire post without making a “not impressed” joke? We’re making progress here, people.
It’s that time of year again when we reflect on everything we’ve accomplished, as well as the things we probably could have done better (like eating a few less slices of pumpkin pie) and make heartfelt resolutions for the new year. After all of the indulgences of the holiday season, we normally include the plan to live a healthier lifestyle at the very top of our list. If you need motivation to get fit in 2012, look no further than our collection of the 100 hottest bikini photos of 2011. It’s sure to inspire you to finally use that gym membership!

There’s a reason we TiVo just about everything on TV — it’s filled with gorgeous starlets workin’ their stuff. Some of our favorite small screen stars showed off their svelte bods this summer. Who’s the hottest — Julianne Hough, Rachel Bilson, Annalynne McCord or Shauna Sand?
Our ten picks for Best Dressed at the Teen Choice Awards all have something in common: they each dressed in a way that best highlights their personal style. Kourtney Kardashian‘s flowy blue mini was pure California glam, Zooey Deschhanel‘s signature retro look was topped with enviable locks, Rachel Bilson kept it simple in white with killer (literally) heels, and Selena Gomez was youthful and elegant in an Erin Fetherston mini. Ashley Greene‘s Givenchy was sleek and elegant — just like her hair, Nina Dobrev was perfectly girlie in gingham and a high pony-tail, Zoe Saldana sparkled and twirled in her summer-y strapless dress, and Blake Lively‘s printed heels helped her sunny orange dress pop even more.
Two dudes also made it onto our list: the ever-dapper Darren Criss, who rocked a sweet little skinny tie and fitted suit jacket, and Taylor “Wait a second did he suddenly get really hot?!” Lautner perfected his action star look in leather. Yes, Taylor is officially doing the Tom Cruise look BETTER than Tom Cruise.
Check out our ten favorite looks in the gallery below!
This is one relationship that just won’t quit. We’ve been through Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson on a break. We’ve been through Rayden breaking up and them breaking their engagement… and yet they go right back for another round. And what’s even sadder is that our little nickname for them isn’t because it’s exciting and we want to hear more. It’s because Hayden’s name is too long. Seriously, Rayden get’s our vote for most boring on again-off again couple ever! And it looks like it’s the green light again considering Rachel and Hayden were in Barbados together for the weekend. They do look quite happy and relaxed together even though her awesome bikini bod seems to be at odds with his pasty white beach expanse. Have fun, kids! [Photos: Splash News Online]
And the fall-out of the film Jumper rolls on. A-list couple Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson have broken up (A-list in as much as both of their movie careers combined adds up to one great one). “Engagement’s over, relationship’s over. She’s really had it,” a source told US Magazine. It’s not exactly clear what Bilson had enough of, but the answer is clearly not “successful film roles in the past three years.”
Rachel and Hayden had met on-set the sci-fi action flick in 2007 and gotten engaged in December 2008. The couple reunited this past fall after Bilson and Christensen broke off their engagement in August. While very few people probably still remember Jumper, we’re shocked and amazed that Hayden still retains the ability to teleport…himself out of his relationship.
