1. Kristin Cavallari’s NFL husband Jay Cutler was released from the Chicago Bears, and now the pair will be leaving the place they’ve called home for his eight seasons there. Cavallari reflected on all the milestones and memories they’ve shared in the Windy City in a sweet Instagram. “So we’re moving from Chicago soon and I gotta say, I’m really gonna miss this place,” she said. “Not only we’re all 3 of my babies born here, it’s where it all began with jay, it brought me closer to my mom who has become my best friend, I’ve made some amazing girlfriends, and I’ve really enjoyed being back here (a lot of people don’t know I lived here when I was younger). Thanks for all the good times, Chicago. This will always be a special place for us ❤️.” Here’s to a new chapter.

But it was Biles, paired with Sasha Farber, who blew EVERYONE out of the water, and immediately emerged as a frontrunner for the season. Is there anything she can’t do!?
