Entertainment this Morning with Gary and Bristol Thursday, August 18 [VIDEO]
Six days a week, Gary and Bristol get up before the sun shines to bring you the latest from Nashville, New York City and Hollywood with Entertainment this Morning!
Police in Rio want to talk to Ryan Lochte and the three other swimmers from Team USA about their alleged robbery at gunpoint. Apparently Brazilian officials aren’t sure that the robbery happened due to inconsistencies in the swimmers’ stories. They can’t find the driver of the cab they were in and they also have video of the athletes returning to the Olympic village looking pretty chill for people who had been held at gunpoint. Add to that the fact that Lochte still had his wallet which he said had been stolen and things start to look a little fishy. Police in Rio went to the Olympic village yesterday to revoke the passports of the four swimmers but Lochte had already returned to the States. However, a British athlete was robbed at gunpoint outside of the Olympic village. Thankfully no one was injured but it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.
In positive Olympic news, the US still leads the medal count with 93 and Team USA swept the women’s 100-meter hurdles taking gold, silver and bronze. We also picked up silver in equestrian show jumping and Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross won bronze in women’s beach volleyball.
This is crazy, but it’s also pretty cool if it happens. LSU alum Shaquille O’Neal may be fighting the Big Show at Wrestlemania 33.
Blake Shelton is manning up and apologized yesterday for the offensive tweets from several years ago that resurfaced this week. BTW, the new season of The Voice kicks off this Sunday after the Olympics.
