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.
To be delicate Ms. Wintour is not known for her diplomacy but a charm offensive may well reshape her public image. The director of a new HBO documentary, In Vogue: the Editor’s Eye, says Wintour “is accessible, smart and furry.”
Insert as many side eyes and as much sucking of teeth as you see fit.
But it does give me an excuse to relate my FAVE Wintour Tale. While conducting an affair during her marriage to David Shaffer (father of Bee) Wintour was spotted by an acquaintance leaving an apartment with her paramour in the wee hours of the morning. Her frenemy noticed the couple because of Anna’s distinctive chinchilla wrap. Lesson learned. When having illicit trysts, leave the signature fashion items at home kids!
With her absolute devotion to Swiss tennis player Roger Federer, if the UK gig doesn’t pan out there is always Switzerland.
In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye will premiere on HBO December 6, at 9PM.
