Eternal Badass Alysia Montano Runs 800 Meters Five Months Pregnant

Olympic track runner Alysia Montano has never been one to let the presence of a fetus developing in her womb keep her from competing, and this year is no exception. On Thursday, she finished seventh in her 800-meter heat at the U.S. Track & Field Outdoor Championships, despite the blistering 110 degree heat and, uh,…

Aaron Carter Was Hospitalized After A Show In Syracuse

aaron1

I’m not ashamed to admit that I missed out on all the hype surrounding Aaron Carter back in the day. Mainly because when he was famous (is he still famous?), I was spending my days and nights getting liquored up and accruing student loan debt in my 20’s. Luckily people still care about him, which is a very good thing, because on Thursday Aaron was hospitalized!

Back in April, Aaron addressed critics who noticed how thin he’s gotten by revealing that he has a medical condition called hiatal hernia and it affects his eating habits, referring to the condition as an “eating disorder.” But you know, because people suck, that explanation wasn’t good enough. So they continued with rude comments like “Go eat something, Olive Oyl!” or “It’s always six o’clock when you’re around, ain’t it?” (Ok, perhaps I made those up myself. Don’t tell Aaron).

Fast forward to Thursday. Aaron was hospitalized after performing in Syracuse and according to the New York Daily News, once he was nice and settled into his hospital room, he whipped his phone out to battle with internet trolls AND throw a few “Shame on you!“s to fans he overheard talking shit about him at his show.

One user tweeted, “sometimes your best friend gets in a verbal fight with Aaron Carter.”

To which Carter, 29, shot back: “You mean a defaming body shaming verbal assault against someone with severe medical conditions which I’ve publicly talked about?”

Aaron also shared this picture with his followers on Twitter, laying up in the bed with classic “You know you wanna hit this” pose to let them know he’s on the mend.

Although he was released on Thursday, he had another show in Indiana on Friday, but hopefully his condition won’t require anymore hospitalization. Get better soon, Aaron! And when I say that, I mean it in every single aspect… Get better clothes. Get better hair. Get better music. Just, get better, bro.

Marvel Studios Directors – Jon Favreau

Being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has given its actors, from Chris Hemsworth to Chadwick Boseman, a major career bump but can the same be said of its directors? For the next eleven days leading up to the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, I will cover a Marvel Studios director and weigh in on whether their time as a cog in the well-oiled MCU machine has help to boost their careers.

First up is Jon Favreau. Favreau is one of the standouts of Marvel Studios’ directors as he was the director of Iron Man, the domino success that singlehandedly paved the way for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and established a second coming of superhero films. Despite the production legendarily known for not having a script, with Jeff Bridges famously calling it a $ 200 million student film,» Iron Man was a smash success in May 2008, making $ 585 million worldwide and transforming Robert Downey Jr. from a formerly-incarcerated junkie into a bonafide movie star.

Favreau returned to direct Iron Man 2, but infamously clashed with Marvel. The tension between the director and studio showed in the rushed, uneven and overstuffed sequel. Afterwards, he cashed in his chips to make the science fiction Western mashup, Cowboys & Aliens, starring Daniel Craig (James Bond), Harrison Ford (Blade Runner) and Olivia Wilde (Drinking Buddies) for Universal, which was released in July 2011. The less said about this ill-conceived genre Frankenstein creation, the better. Cowboys & Aliens could….generously be labeled a cult classic, but it bombed big time making only $ 174 million worldwide on a reported $ 163 million budget. Ouch — that had to hurt.

From there Favreau regrouped and went back to basics with Chef in May 2014. He directed and starred in foodie dramady for Open Road Films alongside Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), Bobby Cannavale (Adult Beginners) and John Leguizamo (Ice Age), with Iron Man buddies RDJ and ScarJo making cameos. It was a summer hit with, and with some juju back in the tank Favreau landed the job to direct the CGI-animated/live-action hybrid adaption of the House of Mouse’s The Jungle Book. The March 2016 film was a critical and commercial success, making nearly a billion dollars worldwide and continuing Disney’s successful streak of adapting their IP. The Jungle Book also netted Disney the Best Visual Effects Oscar at the 89th Academy Awards.

Career Verdict: 8/10. Despite some minor bumps in the road after Iron Man, Favreau’s directorial career leveled up from work with Marvel Studios. Directing Iron Man and Iron Man 2 most likely opened the door at Disney (which owns Marvel) to direct The Jungle Book. It speaks to an enormous about of faith in Favreau that Disney has handed him one of the company’s most beloved Renaissance era IPs to and work his CGI/Live-action Midas touch on — The Lion King, starring Donald Glover (Atlanta) and James Earl Jones (Star Wars). Favreau also has some interesting projects in development with The Magic Kingdom for Disney once again (I’m guessing he’s a company man now), Battle for Bonneville true story about the drag racers Art and Walt Arfons, and an Untitled NFL project all on the backburner.

University Of Maine Softball Player Alyssa Derrick Has An Absolute Cannon For An Arm

This video of Maine softball player, Alyssa Derrick, is picking up steam this afternoon after she casually tossed a football about 60 yards in the parking lot of an apartment complex. People are already making the jokes about how she could step in and start for the Browns or Jets and really, that’s when you know you’ve made it.

But she’s aiming a little higher, ready to take Tommy’s spot on the Pats. She knows what kind of arm she’s working with.

But is she any good at softball?

Yeah, I’d say so. Bomb squad.

OK, Zendaya and Tom Holland’s Friendship Is Pretty Darn Adorable

Spider-Man: Homecoming hasn’t even come out yet, but we’re already obsessed with Zendaya and Tom Holland‘s friendship. The costars have been busy promoting their upcoming film and in the process have been giving us some strong friendship goals. Whether they’re battling it out on stage during Lip Sync Battle or they’re just goofing off on the red carpet, it’s obvious they share a special bond. They’ve even gone as far as sharing each others’ clothes during the press tour. While it’s still unclear if Zendaya will be playing Peter Parker’s most iconic love interest, Mary Jane, in the upcoming installment, their offscreen chemistry is just as sweet.

Ratajkowski On A Boat In Italy, Tiger Woods Mugshot Mural & Josh Jackson’s Awful First Pitch

Welcome to the dog days

Now that the NBA draft is over, we are officially in the dog days of summer. Some say it starts after the Finals, but really it starts after the draft, the last big NBA event before the next season. So now here we are stuck with just baseball for the next 2 months. Not that baseball is the worst thing in the world, but just essentially meaningless this time of year. It’s a rough stretch, but we can get through it. There’s no Olympics to hold us over this year, so we gotta sack up. Just think, that sweet, sweet nectar of football is waiting for us on the other side.

The Cubs Wives And Girlfriends Took A Group Trip To Miami

You want to know what it takes to win a World Series? It doesn’t just come from the players and their chemistry on the field. You need to have the entire organization from top to bottom on the same page. From the owner to the front office to the vendors to the ushers to the players and to the players’ wives. That’s how the Cubs won the World Series. Chemistry throughout the club.

You might expect some drama between the Cubs wives and girlfriends because that’s just what happens. You’ve watched the reality shows, you know what it’s about. But the Cubs WAGs are having none of that. In fact, they get along so well that they took a group trip to South Beach right in the middle of the season. This is a winning formula, people.

Let’s take a look a some of the photos:
