Shiffrin Wins Gold And No Social Media, Host Fire-Crass Comments On Kim, Griffin Sued-Obsession W/ Kendall Jenner


After waiting or days to race due to strong winds on the slopes, U.S. skier Mikaela Shiffrin won gold in the giant slalom (an event that’s not even considered her strongest). This is her second gold medal (she won in the slalom in 2014 in Sochi).  Shiffrin is staying focused by not allowing herself to go on social media or even watch TV (other than Korean TV which she doesn’t understand). She said, “So I’ve really been away from that a bit, and that helps a lot. Because if I can’t see it then I don’t know what people are saying and it really feels like it is just me out there, and then I can just ski for myself.’’Mikaela still has the slalom (her best event), downhill and combined left in the competition.

It’s probably a good think Mikaela is staying away from listening to the media, especially after hearing what a radio host in California said about 17-year old Chloe Kim after she won the gold in the halfpipe. Patrick Connor called Chloe a “little hot piece of (expletive)” on his radio show. Connor was fired from one of his hosting gigs due to this idiotic comment.


Blake Griffin made headlines a few weeks ago when he was traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons. He’s now back in the news defending himself in a palimony suit by his ex-fiancee, Brynn Cameron, and mother of his two children. According to the suit, Griffin abandoned Cameron over his obsession with reality star Kendall Jenner. Cameron said, “Griffin cared more about the glamour of dating a Hollywood celebrity than the day-to-day responsibilities of being a father and family man.” No word on how much money she’s demanding.
