no title

Even though Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympic athlete in the history of the games, it doesn't mean he's perfect.

As we're sure you know, the 30-year-old was arrested and charged with DUI back in 2014 to which he plead guilty and ended up going to rehab.

Well after getting his mind right, the gold medal athlete decided to turn things around and announce that he would be coming out of retirement and competing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio this year!

When it comes to fighting for equal pay, the U.S. women's soccer team isn't playing around!

Last month, five players from the Women's National Team filed a wage-discrimination complaint against U.S. Soccer because they are paid less than half as much as players on the men's team!

On behalf of the entire women's team, co-captain Becky Sauerbrunn, Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, Carli Lloyd, and Megan Rapinoe filed paperwork in hopes of achieving wage equality.

And it looks like the athletes are sticking to their guns. If nothing changes in the federation, the team might use their most powerful bargaining tool in protest of wage discrimination — and not show up to August's Olympics!

Filed under: PolitikHillary ClintonLadyCaitlyn Jenner

Remember when she was bashing the former First Lady?

We're a little confused. Wasn't Caitlyn Jenner JUST bashing Hillary Clinton on I Am Cait?

The brunette beauty has recently made it very clear that she is NOT with her! The reality star claimed the presidential hopeful doesn't care about women, and even admitted that she would prefer Donald Trump running the country over the former First Lady.
