Caitlyn Jenner is going for the gold -- but this time it's a gold sparkly jumpsuit, instead of an Olympic medal.
The Olympian-turned-reality star is gracing the cover of the latest issue of Sports Illustrated to celebrate the 40th anniversary of her iconic decathlon win at the 1976 Summer Olympic Games. The headline of the story reads, “Caitlyn Jenner As You Know Her Now, Bruce Jenner As You Never Knew Him Then.”
Well ... it's certainly been an interesting story to watch unfold ...
In the article, the 66-year-old, who transitioned into being a woman last year, says she doesn't show off the medal, instead she keeps it in her nail drawer and doesn’t bring it out much. “It was great for the kids at show-and-tell,” she told the mag.
While we think it's great that the magazine is honoring the notable athlete, we really have to question the choices for the cover. A glittering jumpsuit for the one-time sports superstar? Maybe dress her in something Olympic looking? Something athletic and not glamorous? Something strong -- like the person she is -- not a glittering jumpsuit? Sports Illustrated is about sports -- not outfits!
We think it's amazing that the mag put Caitlyn on the cover, given all that she's fought for in her life, but this doesn't seem to honor her true greatness. The publication should have just put her in a trendy track suit or something!!
Meanwhile, Caitlyn isn't the only one blazing trails in the magazines ... transgender triathlete, Chris Mosier, is appearing in ESPN The Magazine's annual Body Issue -- and doing it naked! Chris is the first openly trans athlete to appear in the issue, which features nude portraits of athletes. Chris is also the first trans man to be on the Team USA sprint duathlon men's team, which competed in the 2016 World Championship. Wow! That's a lot of cool firsts!

We applaud her for her honesty!
Chelsea Handler has never been one to make any topic off-limits, so it's no surprise that she opened up about her two abortions at age 16 in an essay for Playboy's "Freedom" issue.
"Getting an abortion wasn’t the first idea that popped into my unripened brain. I was going through a very bad stage in my life. I hated my parents and I was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, who was not someone I should’ve been having sex with in the first place, never mind unprotected sex. I wasn’t really playing with a full deck of cards, and when I got pregnant I just thought, ‘Why not? I can have a baby. Maybe I’ll have twins and give them rhyming names!"
The outspoken comedienne ended up terminating the pregnancy at the urging of her parents.
"Of course, the idea that I would have a child and raise it by myself at that age, when I couldn’t even find my way home at night, was ridiculous. My parents recognized that, so they acted like parents for one of the very first times in my life and took me to Planned Parenthood. I felt parented, ironically, while I was getting an abortion. And when it was over, I was relieved in every possible way."
Less than a year later, the Netflix host found herself facing another unplanned pregnancy.
"I had to scrape together the $230 to pay Planned Parenthood, but it was a safe abortion. Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it’s still necessary to make a thoughtful decision. We all make mistakes all the time. I happened to f--k up twice at the age of 16. I’m grateful that I came to my senses and was able to get an abortion legally without risking my health or bankrupting myself or my family."
The 41-year-old is grateful for the 1973 Supreme Court ruling Roe v. Wade, and she doesn't think it is in any danger despite lower court attempts to restrict women's access to abortion clinics.
"We’re too far ahead of the game. Once you go forward in history, you don’t go backward. We’ve already made the decision, and now we’re moving on to transgender rights. And it’s a wrap on men deciding what women can do with their bodies. It’s okay if you think it’s not right for women to have abortions — but it’s not your problem, because we decide. We have 7.3 billion people on this planet. Anybody who carefully decides not to become a parent — let alone a bad parent, which is what I would have become — should be applauded for making a smart and sustainable decision. I’d love for somebody to try to tell me what to do with my body. I dare them."

Blac Chyna really wants you know to know that things are cool with the Kardashians -- like super duper cool!
The pregnant personality made sure to get a selfie with almost every member of the Kardashians when she attended Khloe's 32nd birthday party at Dave & Busters in Los Angeles on Monday night.
From pics with Kim, Kris and Khloe, Rob's disliked lady love got a snap with all the heavy hitters in the clan -- just so we all know that things are cool with the famous family.
The photos show Chyna having a super silly time playing games with the birthday girl, her sister and her soon-to-be mother-in-law. The photos may look cute to some but to us they look like: HEY WORLD, I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN WITH THE KARDASHIANS. LOOK HOW THEY'VE COME TO ACCEPT ME. PLEASE ACCEPT ME, KARDASHIANS! PLEASE!
Newsflash Chyna -- the Kardashians are never going to like you, they are just going to put up with you because you're having Rob's baby!

Khloe Kardashian celebrated her 32nd birthday in style!
True to her young spirit, Khlo and the gang hit up Dave and Busters in Hollywood for an evening of video games and burgers. Literally EVERYONE came -- even pregnant Blac Chyna and Rob! Of course Chyna channeled her inner Kim, wearing cropped black leggings and a bomber jacket. She was sure to pose for Instgrams with every single family member to prove that she's in good with the Kardashians. Guess they had no choice ... she's having their baby!
Kourtney and Scott arrived separately -- Kourt with Mason and Penelope and another young pal. But check this out -- she and Scott were wearing the same ripped jeans and matching silk bomber with an embroidered tiger! Did they plan that?!
Last, but not least, Chrissy Teigen and hubby John Legend were there for a night out without their newborn girl Luna. They looked stunning in matching black, as did Ashlee Simpson and hubby Evan Ross (who knew they were Kardashian pals?). Surprise guest, Floyd Mayweather, brought along his HUGE entourage, which was kind of hilarious. Hope Khloe ordered extra catering for that crowd!
A fun time was had by all and Khloe rang in her 32nd year on the planet surrounded by friends and family and looking better than she ever has. Happy birthday, Khlo!

Guy can't catch a break!
Calvin Harris left the gym in Beverly Hills this afternoon and didn't notice his passenger car door was open, so he ended up crashing into the side of the building. It seems like the stress of his recent breakup with Taylor Swift is really getting to the Scottish DJ, because he lost his temper on our photographer before speeding off. Ever the gentleman, he did apologize to us after the incident for getting so heated!
"I got mad as hell at a paparazzi today, I'm sorry, you did make me back into a wall but I know you're just doing your job and I apologize," he tweeted moments after his wreck.
It can't be easy to watch your ex move on so publicly just days after your split! If you haven't been living under a rock, you know that T-Swizz ditched the hit maker and ran straight into actor Tom Hiddleston's arms. The new couple are currently across the pond in England visiting with Hiddleston's mom, and their romance seems to be moving in lightning speed. Would you expect anything less from Tay Tay?
The EDM superstar isn't going to let the "Bad Blood" songstress craft the whole narrative, though! After a fan accused him of not setting the record straight, Calvin hit back and made it clear all is not what it seems in the headlines. "She controlled the media and this situation, I had no idea what was going on. So that kind of makes it a lot worse from my perspective," he tweeted back in response.
He should really have learned from John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal and Harry Styles and well... half of the rest of Hollywood! Nothing good comes from dating her!

We still can't find an explanation for those bumpy bikini pics...
Jennifer Aniston headed out on the town in NYC today in a black silk dress and brown fedora, and even though her beefy bodyguard was partially blocking our view, we couldn't help but notice her fuller midsection. We still kinda believe she's preggo!
After In Touch reported that the A-list actress was expecting her first child with Justin Theroux, her rep was quick to shoot down the rumors. However, ever since they returned from their romantic vacay in the Bahamas, the Oscar nominee has been hitting up Big Apple hotspots and covering her belly with a jacket each time. Why else would you do that if you didn't have a bun in oven?
The blonde beauty's hubby Justin Theroux hit the streets on his bicycle earlier this morning, which is a departure from his usual motorcycle. Perhaps he's being more careful now that he might be bringing a child into the world?
Ariel Winter is BURNING UP social media with photos like this -- to the tune of 2 million Instagram followers, haters!
There is SO much going on here -- a patriotic bikini, a butt, a breakup ... the 18-year-old Modern Family star recently announced her breakup from boyfriend Laurent Gaudette, who she dated for two years. In fact, the actress recently took to Twitter to post this Kim Kardashian meme, alluding to her newly-single status. Hey, with two million Instagram followers -- plenty of whom would be more than happy to date Ariel -- we have a feeling Mr. Gaudette will be replaced as fast as you can say "shameless sexy selfie!"

Yeezy wasn't afraid of the consequences from his new "Famous" music video... until now, that is!
Kanye West took more than a few creative liberties by including the likeness of some of the world's most controversial celebs in his new music video for "Famous," and he even went so far as to tweet that he wasn't afraid of the legal ramifications, but he had a change of heart yesterday and decided to delete that message from social media.
"Can somebody sue me already #I’llwait," he wrote on Saturday morning. Alas, by Sunday morning that tweet was gone.
The vid features Bill Cosby, Caitlyn Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, George Bush, Amber Rose, Ray J, and Taylor Swift. Bush's reps recently told ET that the former President never participated or signed off on this project, and T-Swizzle famously - pun intended! - had a massive problem with Ye's use of her name in the tune, so we doubt she's cool with being included.
We guess we'll have to wait and see who has it in them to face off with Yeezus in court!
