It seems there’s no rest — or food — for an Olympic gold medalist.
Minutes after earning first place in a nearly perfect performance at the women’s halfpipe event in the Water Games on Tuesday morning (Monday night stateside) — and just a few hours after saying she was getting “hangry” on the hill — 17-year-old U.S. snowboarder Chloe Kim said she still hadn’t had a bite to eat.
So what would she chow down on to celebrate her medal, if she had a second to herself?
“Burgers, fries, maybe some Hawaiian pizza,” she tells PEOPLE, her latter choice almost immediately stirring a tiny bit of controversy online from die-hard haters of pineapple and ham and tomato sauce together.
Kim knows from food, just to judge by her Twitter, where her missives the last few days have playfully riffed on her dietary habits.
Between her runs Tuesday in the halfpipe final, Kim tweeted, “Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I’m getting hangry.” (A follower responded, “um aren’t u on the top of a mountain rn.”)
Earlier in the week, she shared she “could be down for some ice cream rn,” triggering a mini-viral moment during which NBC polled its followers on what kind of ice cream she should get.
To that she responded, “Cookies & Cream is some good stuff. If anyone can get me some to the village thatd be dope.”
The playful posts are another piece of Kim’s rapidly increasing fame. Speaking to reporters after competing on Tuesday — as ever with her blend of calm and charisma, spiked by demonstrable enthusiasm; aka, being a teenager — she said her followers on Instagram have about doubled since she traveled to South Korea.
“My Twitter’s been blowing up because of the tweets that I tweeted yesterday,” she said, knowingly, at a news conference later Tuesday, referring to her riffs on what she was and was not eating.
Asked by PEOPLE if she was ready to be known as a foodie Internet personality, it seems Kim is not (understandably) going to leave the snow behind — but she’s not going to abandon any new fans.
She says, “I’m just here to inspire.”

When Kim Zolciak-Biermann goes on vacation, sometimes that includes going on a vacation from clothes – or bikini tops at least.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 39, shared photos from her trip with husband Kroy on Instagram Monday, wearing just a pair of animal print bikini bottoms. “Day 1 of our getaway I would go to the end of this earth for you my love, my best friend, my strength, my heart, and my world,” Zolciak-Biermann captioned her two photos.
Though the mother of six received several comments, one specific reaction had fans and followers in hysterics. “Where is ur top?” Zolciak-Biermann’s second eldest child, 16-year-old daughter Ariana wrote in the comments section.
“@arianabiermann it’s on you can’t see it?” the Don’t Be Tardy star responded.
While Zolciak-Biermann enjoys traveling with Kroy and her family, it appears she prefers not to the same with her Bravo costars.
On the latest RHOA episode, most all the Housewives hopped on a flight to Barcelona for season 10’s big girls trip.
Zolciak-Biermann told the ladies that she wasn’t going to travel to Spain without her husband due to the mini-stroke she had in September 2015, which led to her hospitalization and, eventually, heart surgery after doctors discovered an existing genetic condition that required treatment.
“Less than two years ago, I had a stroke coming from L.A. which is a four-hour flight. Going to Barcelona, which is a 10-hour flight, does make me nervous,” she said. “I know that my husband would make sure I’m okay. He knows why signs to look for… It makes me very uneasy.”
Adding, “I don’t know why it’s an issue to bring Kroy. He’s my husband. I don’t understand what the problem is.”
Meanwhile, Zolciak-Biermann’s topless picture comes a couple days after she shared a makeup and wig-free selfie. “I feel beautiful with no makeup and no wig and I feel beautiful with makeup and a wig,” she wrote in the photo’s caption. “I love being a woman, dressing up, and I also love running around in my La Perla pajamas bottoms (that are old as s— — I wear them every day) and my bathrobe.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
Snowboarding prodigy Chloe Kim landed a gold medal in women’s halfpipe Tuesday in Pyeongchang, South Korea, becoming the the youngest woman to win an Olympic snowboarding medal.
On Feb. 4, Kim Cattrall confirmed that her 55-year-old brother Chris had been found dead in Canada. After learning of the tragedy, Parker reached out to her former Sex and the City costar privately and had written a supportive comment on social media: “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.”
“I thought it was fake. I was like, ‘There’s no way Kim Cattrall has posted this on her Instagram.’ This is a woman who is in the middle of grieving the loss of her brother, which is tragic and sad,” Cohen, 49, said on his Radio Andy show on Monday. “She accused of exploiting a tragedy and I’ve been getting all these tweets from people.”
“She was doing press all last week for Divorce. And you know, guess what? When you’re doing press, you’re asked the same questions about what’s going on. So people, I’m sure, were like, ‘What do you think of what happened?’ And she simply and concisely expressed her condolences. I would not call that exploiting a tragedy. What was she supposed to do? Say something bad? I don’t understand,” Cohen continued about Parker, who spoke out about the tragedy to Extra at New York City’s Paley Center for Media on Thursday night while promoting Divorce.
The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host also admitted that he doesn’t “like it that people are characterizing this as a catfight. There’s only one person fighting here.”
“Sarah only said the nicest things about her. And then the same thing with the movie,” he said, referencing Parker’s recent appearance on his late-night Bravo show. “The only thing she’s ever commented about the movie or about Kim not wanting to do the movie was that she was disappointed that the studio pulled the plug on it.”
“I don’t get it,” said Cohen. “It’s a catfight of one from where I see it.”
Cattrall began criticizing her former SATC costars last year after Parker revealed that plans for a third SATC movie had been scrapped. Sources said that Cattrall’s demands had derailed the project; Cattrall denied this, saying she never agreed to do the film. In October she told Piers Morgan that she’s “never been friends” with her SATC costars.
Parker has not responded to Cattrall’s Saturday Instagram post, but she did address Cattrall’s previous remarks to PEOPLE last week during an interview for an upcoming story about her HBO show Divorce, her new Gap Kids line and other projects.
“I never responded to the conversation that Kim had with Piers Morgan, where she said things that were really hurtful about me,” Parker told PEOPLE. “I don’t want to answer it, that’s not how I feel about her. I think of her as part of this experience and it was amazing. We had a connection with the audience, and we had a connection with this city and with this crew and we got to tell these crazy stories with each other. And I don’t want to mess with that.”
Uh oh! Ellen DeGeneres’ 60th birthday party brought enemies Kim Kardashian and Pink under one roof. We’ve got the details on if there was an awkward run-in.
Kim shared a video from their book club meeting on her app on Monday, and before they could dive in to her selection, Embraced by the Light by Betty J. Eadie, Kourtney turned the discussion to Kim’s body.
“I can’t take your hips seriously right now,” Kourtney said to Kim. “Because your waist is so small and your hips are so big.”
“24,” Kim said, with a smirk.
“24? That’s insane,” Atkin replied.
“It’s never been 24 ever in my life,” Kim said, and after Atkin asked, added that her hips are 39 inches.

After giving birth to son Saint West, 2, in Dec. 2015, Kim started on the Atkins Diet and jumpstarted her workout routine to get back to her pre-pregnancy shape, and lose the 70 lbs. she gained with Saint and daughter North, 4. But over the last year, Kim took her workouts and diet to another level with trainer Melissa Alcantara.
“Kim told me, ‘I love my body. I love the way it looks and I love my hips,’ ” Alcantara recently told PEOPLE. “She just wanted more muscle. She wanted bigger hamstrings, which accentuates the entire leg. And she wants those cut arms and abs!”
Kim now works out with Alcantara six days a week at 6 a.m., and they focus on different areas of the body each day.
“Kim has been getting some really nice results, like with her triceps!” Alcantara said. “She can’t believe how much has changed over the last few months. And when you’re in this deep, it’s hard to go back. She just keeps it up.”
The trainer added that Kim’s body goals have changed.
“She didn’t want to be skinny. She wanted to have muscle and feel strong. And she wanted to find something she can do for the rest of her life,” Alcantara said. “I totally understood where she was coming from.”
