Simone Biles and Aly Raisman are trading in their leotards for bikinis! On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated announced via Twitter that the Olympic Gold medalists would be featured in their upcoming Swimsuit Issue.

Five months after turning heads in #Rio, @simoneBiles and @alyRaisman will make their #SISwim debut!

The publication teased two images with its announcement — one of Raisman, a three-time gold medalist, in a sexy black bikini and the other of Biles, a four-time gold medalist, doing a classic gymnastics pose in a black print bikini.


“I am thrilled to include the gold medal-winning, U.S. women’s gymnasts Aly Raisman and Simone Biles in this year’s Swimsuit issue,” said MJ Day, SI Swimsuit editor. “Aly and Simone represent all that is beautiful and strong and inspiring in women today.


But while the ladies clearly have insane bodies, they still have their fair share of haters. HipHollywood caught up with Raisman at the Golden Globes after-party on Sunday and she revealed how she deals with the negativity. “I’m very sensitive, so I’ve been trying to put my phone down now and just focus on the positive.”

Biles, 19, recently had to shut down some body shamers who came for her after she posted a photo on social media. “You all can judge my body all you want, but at the end of the day it’s MY body. I love it & I’m comfortable in my skin,” she tweeted.

“Simone is so tiny, she’s so incredibly fit,” Raisman said in shock over the mean words written about her Olympic teammate. “You just can’t please everyone all the time.”



Exclusive: ‘The Oath’s Cory Hardrict, Kwame Patterson Recall Being Harassed By Cops



If you want to take an emotional, entertaining and dangerous ride through the corrupt land of law enforcement, then we suggest you tune in for The Oath.  

Delivering a unique perspective on what it means to wear the color blue, the show follows a group of police officers and their lives with badges on and off.

“With being a cop in the workforce, especially being an African American cop, when we step out there, we always want to do the right thing,” Cory Hardrict told HipHollywood. “The crazy thing about this show is we have another life as well outside of the cop world where things aren’t so perfect.”

Cory, who is expecting a baby girl very soon with his wife, Tia Mowry, continued, “When the badge comes off and we have on regular civilian clothes, we get treated like every African American harassed person out here in the world.”

Although this is just a television show, the narrative is not exactly a far cry from reality, a reality Cory Hardrict and Kwame Patterson personally know all too well. “I had one incident where he [the officer] took his blade and went to the back seat cut the back seat and sliced it … but you can’t do anything.”

Patterson added, “I’m from Baltimore, so Baltimore is one of the most corrupt police cities in the United States. So I’ve definitely dealt with police brutality, discrimination … it’s always my word against theirs.”

The new show, produced by 50 Cent, is now streaming on Crackle.
