Michael Phelps may be the golden boy of the Olympics, winning a record 8 gold medals and attracting the ladies like flies on poop, but not ALL the ladies. (And, I admit he is no Brad Pitt, but the guy won 8 gold medals. That is attractive in itself! Oh, and the Speedo looks pretty nice too, I might add.)
Amanda Beard, a fellow American swimmer, has been linked to Michael Phelps and girlfriend was quick to deny AND stick her foot in her mouth times ten. Talk about making oneself look like a total beotch!
According to MSNBC, rumors of romance between the athletes began to circulate earlier this week, and while the record-breaker simply denied them, Amanda took to the airwaves on the â€œJohnjay and Rich in the Morningâ€ radio show and made it clear that she found idea of dating the golden boy repulsive.
When asked if she ever kissed Michael, Amanda answered, â€œEw, no!â€ Held hands? â€œEw, no! Not even that.â€ Even the mere suggestion that Michael might be attracted to her inspired an â€œew-thatâ€™s-so-nastyâ€ response.
Beard goes on to add that she doesn’t find Michael attractive and that she goes for “different looking” guys, saying that “I have really good taste.”
Ok. Apparently someone is a tad vain and a bit of a snob. A simple “no” would have been enough. Do I sense a bit of jealousy in Ms. Beard’s tone?
Hey Amanda, Phelps won EIGHT gold medals. Count ‘em…EIGHT! Boo YAH!
