This is not a post defending Ryan Lochte. This is a post to make you think about how you think about Ryan Lochte. I will be the first to admit that I have always had a soft spot for Ryan Lochte. Like dozens of people, I watched his reality show when it was on. He has […]
Hollywood triple threat Jordan Fisher recently sang live for us in the Young Hollywood studio (that falsetto is faint-inducing). Not too long ago, I also toured the Phoenix1 team house; they’re pro-gamers who compete in the North American League of Legends Championship Series.

I understand this isn’t exactly possible and, in many ways, anatomically inaccurate, but the amount of pressure I’m storing upwards of my nostrils would have you think otherwise. I’m suffering from a hacking cough so violent at times, […]
A recent study showed that exercise is changing our DNA and possibly for the better. Which is great, especially for those of us who LOVE working out, which is each and every one of us, right? Of course not. Yes, despite my love for my gym – and I do love my gym but mostly because […]
