Coming Soon: Ryan Lochte Reality Show

In an attempt to stretch Olympic fame, swimming gold medalist Ryan Lochte is shooting a reality show for the E! network.

According to Gossip Cop it will follow every aspect of his life, from training for the 2016 Olympic Games to his search for Mrs. Right.

Lochte and his management team have made no secret of his desire to break into the entertainment industry. After scoring cameos in a few network shows, he spoke about participating in The Bachelor or Dancing With Stars.

I think his own show, with scripts crafted to downplay his weaknesses (insert your own dumb as * joke here) and which will allow HEAVY editing is a smart move for him.

Lochte hails from my current neck of the woods (by all accounts he is exactly as he appears)  so I might get a chance for some first hand reporting.

What Would Ryan Lochte Do? (yes, the jokes pretty much write themselves) will premiere in April.

 

Which Gold Medalist Was PREGNANT At the 2012 London Olympics?

 

This is kind of awesome and amazing news, if you ask me. You really have to admire a woman who was able to pull of winning her third consecutive Olympic gold medal.

Kerri Walsh Jennings – 5 weeks pregnant in London!

That’s right. Kerri Walsh-Jennings, told Matt Lauer on The TodayShow that she didn’t feel quite herself back in London.

“When I was throwing my body around fearlessly, and going for gold for our country, I was pregnant,” Walsh Jennings said.

The Olympian first started noticing that her “body started to feel different” while she was overseas.

“I’m a pretty happy girl and I was unreasonably moody,” she said. “I thought it could have been the stress of the games and travel kind of throws your schedule off. But I knew. At some point, you’re late and then you start feeling something. And I definitely felt something in London.”

Walsh Jennings, who successfully defended her gold medal title with teammate and fellow Californian Misty-May Treanor, said that the pregnancy did not affect her game. The duo became the first women’s beach volleyball pair to win three consecutive gold medals.

“I gave everything I had,” Walsh Jennings said on “Today.”

If we as American women didn’t already admire Kerri for her incredible accomplishments, now we can feel awe for her as well.  Wow.  Just wow!

Let’s Discuss Rihanna’s New Chest Tattoo

I’m still squinting at this thing…

Oh.  Okay.. Now I see.  Rihanna’s giant new tattoo is just below her boobies, on and between her ribcage.  RiRi got the new ink in the Soho neighborhood in London while she was in town to perform for the 2012 Paralympics.

Alongside the picture, Rihanna Tweeted: ‘Goddess Isis – Complete Woman – Model for future generations – #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart.

Holding her arm across her bare cleavage for modesty, she showed off a large image of Isis kneeling with her wings spread across Rihanna’s ribcage. She is said to symbolize the eternal mother, friend to slaves, sinners and the helpless.

The Grammy winner had her new ink done at a tattoo parlor in the Soho area of London and was seen flashing her midriff and revealing the Saran Wrap and masking tape used to cover fresh and still oozing tattoos.

Well, there have certainly been a lot of changes for Rihanna lately. She just cropped her hair super short and debuted the extreme look on the MTV VMAs. But one person is not fond of  her new androgynous do. CNN’s Piers Morgan tweeted: ‘”@piersmorgan: ps I think @Rihanna needs to grow her hair back. Fast.”

To which she smacked back on Twitter: “grow a d**k….. FAST!!!!”

Oh, DO shut up, Piers.  I love Rihanna’s short hair.

And I’m not gonna hate on a memorial tattoo for her beloved Grandmother. Not gonna do it.
