The Celebrity Big Brother winner spoke to Metro about her time on the sixth season of the Emmy Award winning series and how she and fellow contestant, Bianca Del Rio, used to break the show’s rules. “You are not allowed to talk when you’re not on camera,” she told the publication. “It’s reality TV – they want to capture all the magic for the cameras so you’re sequestered away in rooms and everyone gets in a minivan to the hotel...

Less than three years after a performance at the Rio de Janeiro games filled with epic highs and lows, Tom Daley is officially returning to the Olympics in 2020.

“Gay Baiting” Grindr Story

On Sunday, The International Olympic Committee (IOC) made an announcement that will no doubt make plenty of people happy, our readership not least among them. Following his “gay baiting” story — in which Daily Beast contributor Nico Hines scored Grindr dates with athletes participating in the Rio Olympics — the publication has decided to send the journalist packing. The IOC issued a statement that said Hines’ story was “simply unacceptable.” https://twitter.com/JohnHandscombe/status/765107893108666368?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw https://twitter.com/Eponineq/status/765073276997513216?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw https://twitter.com/ChadTaylor/status/765056856662302720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw His article — which featured the headline “The other Olympic sport in Rio: Swiping” —...

LGBT

A record 43 LGBT athletes are competing in the Rio Olympics games this summer, but some of those Olympians have already become the targets of homophobic slurs from the crowds, reports the LA Times. The homophobic insults were heard coming from the stands of Estadio Mineirao on Wednesday when women’s soccer players took the field. The L.A. Times reported that people in the stands hurled the anti-gay term, “bicha” -a Portuguese word similar to ‘faggot’ at women on the field. Think Progress...
Rio

Just about 24 hours ago, Nico Hines (pictured) became the Internet’s most hated man, and the fury shows no signs of dying down anytime soon. Hines, who is white, straight and married with a kid, has been in Rio covering the Olympics for The Daily Beast. As part of his reporting, he thought it would be hilarious to create a fake Grindr profile and bait closeted gay athletes then write all about it. Apparently, his editors thought this would be hilarious, too, because they signed off on it. Well, very shortly...
Colton Haynes

“USA! USA! USA!” That’s what Colton Haynes’ butt cheeks are saying in a new video posted to the freshly out actor’s Snapchat page. Mr. Haynes recently showed off his support for Team USA in Rio by twerking in a red polo shirt, white Tommy Hilfiger pants and red, white and blue Top-Siders. We have to say, he’s got a pretty nice shake. Check out the video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEQqx2WAoe0 Source
