No one is having a better Olympics than Simone Biles!

On Thursday, the pint-sized gymnast won her SECOND gold medal for Women's Individual All-Around. She already won the top prize for Team All-Around with the rest of the 2016 USA Olympic team.

While the 19-year-old is having a blast in Rio, life wasn't always so peachy keen.

When the Ohio-native was two, she was put in foster care because her mom — Shannon Biles — struggled with drug abuse. The athlete and her younger sister Adria were eventually adopted by their grandparents.

In an interview that aired on NBC, Simone's biological grandfather — Ron — criticizes Shannon for her "many problems."

Earlier this week, Shannon spoke out and is tired of being painted as an addict when she has been sober since 2007. She said:

Jay Pharoah Finally Breaks His Silence After Surprise SNL Firing… But Is He Hinting At Behind-The-Scenes Drama?!

no title

Live from New York it's… only three of the cast?

Television viewers were modestly shocked on Tuesday when it was announced that both Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah had been unceremoniously fired from Saturday Night Live after six years on the late night sketch show.

Not only were they arguably the two most talented male players in the cast, but they're also two of the most featured comedians… which means Lorne Michaels must have something big planned for Season 42 to replace them…

While Taran addressed his sudden departure shortly after the NBC news broke, Jay remained suspiciously quiet all day long — as did fellow axed actor Jon Rudnitsky, but he was still new, so…

Luckily, the Barack Obama impersonator finally referenced his termination in an Instagram post on Wednesday alongside Taran and Vanessa Bayer… but is he subtly placing blame on

NBC Issues Yet Another Apology After Male Commentator Refers To Lesbian Olympian's Wife As Her 'Husband'

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzBeachOlympicsVolleyballControversyGirl PowerLGBTSocial Issues

no title

This one seems much less mean-spirited than the others… but come on, dude. It's 2016!

We haven't even made it through a full week of 2016 Summer Olympics coverage, and yet we've already had as many scandals as there have been days.

That's because following social blunders from NBC involving Simone Biles' adoption and Katinka Hosszú's world-record swim, we've had yet ANOTHER instance of male sports analysts inappropriately reacting to female athletes.

The latest case occurred Tuesday afternoon when Brazilian beach volleyball players Larissa França and Talita Antunes defeated Americans Lauren Fendrick and Brooke Sweat during pool play.

After completely shutting out her opponents, Larissa naturally wanted to celebrate with her loved ones — including her wife Liliane Maestrini who was sitting in the Rio de Janeiro stands.

However, when NBC News commentator Chris Marlowe tried to describe the scene to viewers, he accidentally referred to Lili

A THIRD Saturday Night Live Cast Member Just Got Cut — PLUS 20 Other SNL Stars Who Were Fired!

no title

We guess bad things really do come in threes…

Saturday Night Live viewers were shocked on Tuesday when it was reported that fan-favorites Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah had both been let go from the late night show after six years on the air.

However, it seems as though Lorne Michaels wasn't content with cutting just two of his line-up, because featured player Jon Rudnitsky followed them right out the door later the same day!

But if Jay, Jon, or Taran happen to be your favorite, don't fret — plenty of today's hottest stars were one once fired from the NBC series, too!

Just look at Robert Downey, Jr., Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Sarah Silverman! All three of them had less-than-stellar stints on the show, and they turned out fine.

So who else has been fired from SNL in its 41-season span??

Yet Another NBC Olympics Commentator Controversy! This Time Because Of A Tweet About Simone Biles' Parents…

no title

Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice… get it together, NBC!

The 2016 Summer Olympics have only been underway for about four days now, and yet we've already had not one, but TWO major scandals out of the only American network broadcasting the games.

Sure, Rio de Janeiro itself has had its fair share of negative press, but the Peacock network's controversies are even more offensive simply because there's no reason they should be popping up in the first place!

As if commentator Dan Hicks' sexist beliefs that Katinka Hosszú won her world-record gold medal all because of her husband weren't bad enough, a second sportscaster just made some questionable comments regarding Simone Biles and her adoption!

Apparently, infamous gymnastics analyst Al Trautwig has been offending viewers by referring to the 19-year-old's adoptive parents Ron and Nellie Biles as
