There is this British model seems to be after him too? Plus, Access Hollywood said that Lohan text messaged him. Mama Phelps was not happy! He has alot of opportunity with the ladies right now. Let's hope that he doesn't settle down with a bad girl.

Also, How does Brendan Hansen feel about Phelps possibly dating Beard? Then again, from what I heard, that was just an Athens thing!

According to the highly reliable source of facebook, Amanda is already in a relationship and not with Phelps. I wouldn't worry though, I'm sure he wont' have a problem finding someone. Let's hope it's not Lohan, and doesn't she have a girlfriend now anyway?

Just read on Perez that Phelps isn't going to be on the Wheaties box... he will be on Kellogg's corn flakes and frosted flakes.

Amanda said on some radio show that she isn't dating him. The way she was talking, it was as though Michael wasn't good looking enough for her. So picky. From what I heard on tmz, women in this country would rather date Phelps than George Clooney. Beard didn't come off so great in that interview. She better watch her back if she runs into that AT&T chick and some Phelps fanatic girls in South Jersey.

And no one cared about her last CD. I saw clips on her running and biking. I can't imagine her getting in a her pool and actually swimming. She better use pull buoys to keep her body horizontal. Then again, I don't think that they make pull buoys that can keep her butt up.

Amanda put her boyfriend on Access Hollywood. He makes me look like Brad Pitt. Yet, Phelps is not good looking enough for her. Then again, who cares because apparently, Carrie Underwood has a crush on him and Carrie makes Amanda look like Amy Winehouse. If Carrie and Michael got married, their kids could break swimming records and put out Hit country songs. Plus, she seems like a nice girl.

Michael Phelps' Girlfriend: He Addresses Rumors, Beard Says "Ew" No
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/08/19/michael-phelps-girlfriend_n_119832.html

As for the rumors Phelps is dating fellow Olympic swimmer, Amanda Beard, he declares, "No, I'm not dating Amanda Beard (seen here). I'll say that. I think she has a boyfriend."

Meanwhile, Amanda also denied she was dating Phelps, saying,
"Eww, that's nasty... I have never, ever hooked up with Michael Phelps,"
Beard said via telephone from Beijing on the "Johnjay and Rich Show," which is broadcast on Kiss FM 104.7 in Phoenix.
"Come on, I have really good taste," Beard said. "He's really not my type."

This Facebook thing allows us to be "friends" with the famous such as Beard, Hall, Manadou and the Fortress. I have shown my wife pictures of Beard and Manadou clothed and unclothed, not of Fortress though. My wife refers to Beard as "that s..t" (in Portuguese version: aquela piranha). I guess she is prejudiced. Poor manadou, didn't do so well in the Olympics. Anyway, I have seen pictures of the boyfriend (Beard) and although he rides a bike, his looks would fit into the description above by Geek. I would like to add that even though we speak evil of Beard and Kournikova (the russian tennis player) we must not forget they also walked the talk, with Beard qualifying by the clock, not looks, and Kournikova did reach top ten in the tennis ranking. Some ladies such as most swimmers. including the Fortress, besides being hot are also fast. Not so much for our male representatives in this forum, with a few exceptions. The Stud and I and possibly Thornton aren't that fast but we sure are good looking blokes. (Jim is faster but he is also balder)...billy (feeling silly) fanstone

I hear this term too often and its meaning seems to vary by the age of the speaker, along with the phrase "we aren't dating, we're just hanging out." Is that like friends with benefits? Beats me, I'm too old I guess.

When I hear teenagers using that phrase, it doesn't mean hanging out. Maybe one of the youthful members of the forum can correct me, but I think it's a pseudonym for anything from casual sex to making out and usually takes place at parties. Maybe we can ask Amanda?

Amanda lost all class, in my opinion, when she posed for Playboy... the eww nasty quote further proves my point that she is a total idiot - insulting a teammate that has now become the best Olympian ever. A simple NO would have been enough to answer that question. I'm sure that Phelps has some dirt on her, but he is probably smart AND CLASSY enough to keep his mouth shut.

She has already started damage control (read it on perez too). ;)

Elise, are you suggesting that Playboy is a magazine used for a specific stimulating activity? I think the Vicky Secrets or Frederick's catalogues provide about the same for free.

I'm a guy, and I think Phelps is a fair looking dude. Not Brad Pitt, but then again Hollywood is all fake tans and plastic teeth anyway.

To me there isn't much difference in what she did to what Beckham did in his undies for Armani or whoever it was (careful--CF might pop up here with some data to refute it).

Phelps got his body from hard work in the pool and the gym. Most of these actors get their bodies from plastic surgeon, Roids, eating disorders, etc. There are people who get calf implants.

Beard should have ew, he is like a brother me. She was insulting because she talked about how, "I have good taste". And she used the word nasty. She really went over the line. Maybe she was really joking but she shot herself in the foot with the deeper comments. Also, Mama Phelps was not happy with Beard's comments. In addition, you know that Beard is loving all the press and the postings on Perezhilton.

Now, Australian Superhottie Stephanie Rice is linked to Phelps. If this is true, is Eamon Sullivan going to be nice. Then again, women think that Sullivan is hot so he probably has his pick of the litter.

Back to Rice, she is really attractive. She looks really stunning without makeup after her races. If this is true, way to go Phelps.

Stephanie Rice is a stunner, she's gorgeous so I don't blame Phelps for taking an interest.

From Today's New York Post Page Six....

Michael Phelps (http://www.nypost.com/news/p/phelps_michael/phelps_michael.htm) doesn't have a girlfriend, but he celebrated his record-breaking eight gold medals in Beijing by sneaking off for a sizzling game of tonsil hockey with one of Australia's hottest Olympians.

Phelps, fresh from shattering Mark Spitz's 36-year-old record, was spotted Monday night in a hot make-out session with Down Under swimmer Stephanie Rice, a source tells The Post's Clemente Lisi and Luke Dennehy. The pumped-up pair clinched and swapped spit at a celebratory bash outside the Olympic Village.

The Baltimore Bullet swooped in for the lip-lock with the 20-year-old brunette just weeks after she split from Aussie swimmer Eamon Sullivan. "All the swimmers are talking about it, and [Sullivan] is cut up about what happened," the source said.
The day after the face-sucking frolics, Phelps and Rice cheekily posed together for Speedo - laughing and playfully groping each other as a photographer snapped them in their swimsuits. "I definitely admire him for his athletic ability and everything he's achieved," gushed Rice, who won three gold medals of her own. "I'm just really glad to be in the mix with that."

Whether the dynamic duo is now a couple isn't known. Phelps' rep didn't return our calls.Since winning, the 6-foot-4 wonder has been linked to US swimmer Amanda Beard, who posed nude for Playboy, and British model Lily Donaldson. Both have denied ever dating him, with Beard going as far as to fume, "Eww, that's nasty."

Meanwhile, Simon & Schuster's Free Press imprint has signed Phelps to write "Built To Succeed," a behind-the-scenes look at the training regimen that led to his victorious performances. It'll be out in December. Sources say Phelps got a $1 million advance in anticipation of its doing better than his 2005 tome, "Beneath the Surface," which sold only 10,000 copies.

Aw, that is great that Phelps is a fixture on PageSix. Go, Michael. I don't think that Eamon cares what Rice does or shouldn't. He broke up with her. Plus, I am sure that he was doing his own tonsil hockey with chicks at these parties. Watch out, Michael, she could be looking for a green card. Just saying! Then again, who the heck wants to leave Australia with all those LCM pools.

"Serenade"


Memories linger when college is past,
Girls that we dreamed of are Sig girls at last;
Visions come back when the world goes wrong,
We pledge our devotion on wings of a song.
Open your window, the music drifts in,

I'm like Fort - I don't care for the term "hook up." I want to go back to the 50s when women were serenaded from beneath their windows.

And right after, the women were supposed to cook a five course meal and fetch slippers! No thanks!

I'm sure there are plenty of "hookups" after big swimming events. But they could find a better word perhaps?

I see it at regular USA meets too. Big flirt fest. After zones this summer, my kid came home and, thanks to facebook, I found out that she was "in a relationship." lol. At least I guessed who!

Excerpt from a 1950s Home Economics Textbook


Compiled by Ms. Leslie Blankship
Columbus, Ohio


Have dinner ready: Plan ahead even the night before to have a delicious meal on time. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal are part of the warm welcome needed.
Prepare yourself: Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your makeup, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work-wary people. Be a little gay and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a lift.
Clear away the clutter: Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives, gathering up school books, toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift, too.
Prepare the children: Take a few minutes to wash the children's hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair, and if necessary, change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part.
Minimize all noise: At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quite. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be glad to see him. Some don'ts: Don't greet him with problems or complaints. Don't complain if he's late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with what he might have gone through that day.
Make him comfortable: Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soft soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax-unwind.
Listen to him: You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.
Make the evening his: Never complain if he does not take you out to dinner or to other places of entertainment. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure, his need to be home and relax.
The goal: Try to make your home a place of peace and order where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.



Fort - He he. Couldn't resist putting this here for you.

"Serenade"

Memories linger when college is past,
Girls that we dreamed of are Sig girls at last;
Visions come back when the world goes wrong,
We pledge our devotion on wings of a song.
Open your window, the music drifts in,
Dream girl of Sigma Chi,
No one more worthy than you wears the pin,
Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.
Your heart beats true for the gold and the blue,
Out Cross is our pledge of devotion to you, dear,

I remember a Summer Sanders interview a while back... she says that swimmers do "hook up" after the swimming is over at the Olympics.

I'll bet the next NYP article will be that Phelps is going out with Sanders.
(The one after that will have him going out with a mermaid, bigfoot, or ET.)

It's funny that it's gone from Beard, some other girl, and now onto Rice. I'm sure the future mermaid will be in Ok! magazine, not NYP. Hee.

If you are strongly against asking someone to hook up with you, just ask if they want to come over and kick it -or- do you like sushi?



*Note to parents, don't panic. Just like hook up, kick it can mean hang out in a totally plutonic way.

Being a married man, I don't like ambiguity in regards to the most beneficial aspects of the marital relationship. A sliding scale of possibilities confuses me. I like to know my chances in pretty EZ to understand terms. For instance when I hear "you are a terrible husband and you spend too much time at the gym" I know this means something markedly different from "you are a terrible husband but at least you have a job" - game on!

Better than the alternative. If you don't "hook up" you have to face the ignominy of telling your lanemates the next morning that you went home and did a "pull set" before going to bed.

Does Debbie Phelps have a new boyfriend? Debbie has to watch for gold diggers after her son's money and Michael and his sisters has to watch out for "K-Fed like Older Men" after their mom's Chicos money. Of course, if this new rumor is true.

Michael Phelps wins 8 gold medals and the swimming world goes mainstream(for now). Mama Phelps get endorsements and a press tour. Swimming parties attendants tip off Page Six. Phelps is a big fixture on Page Six and Perez Hilton. Is Michael going to replace Britney, Paris, and Jolie on the gossip rags. Then again, it would be nice to go to the supermarket and see someone different on these covers. I wonder if the paparazzi will start a bureau(or whatever they do) in Baltimore.

Some former table tennis players said somewhere that basically, Michael Phelps is a geek. Ah, if Michael Phelps is a geek, then there aren't words to describe this former table tennis player. Michael Phelps is a freaking stallion. Winning 14 gold medals omits him from being described a geek.

Just keep him away from Lohan("Lezlo") and whatever diseases she carries, allegedly. Phelps is becoming a fixture with the supermarket tabloids. Michael Phelps is a step up from Tony Romo and that guy on Gossip Girl. Phelps is not goofy looking. I don't just get how he gets all that food he eats into such a small mouth. Carrie Underwood is the catch of the last 10 years.

I think it's awesome that he's getting so much press. Even if it is in gossip magazines his name is getting out there and so his how he came to acquire his medals. This is going help swimming in the long run. Any time you have a celebrity people like to know how they got there and want to try it for themselves. I think he has his head on straight enough (or at least his agent does hopefully) to make the most of this press.

here's a few tidbits

Michael Phelps is not dating Stephanie Rice.
And rumors linking him to American Idol champion Carrie Underwood appear to be fleeting.
The latest possibility for Phelps' girlfriend, thereforei, is Nicole Johnson, a former Miss California USA runner up. While she told People Magazine, that she and the Olympic icon are just friends, Phelps said:
"I never said I have a girlfriend, and I never said I don't have a girlfriend. My public and private life are separate. I keep my private life to myself."


wonder if there's any truth to this one

Washington (ANI): Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan, who was rumoured to be dating gal pal DJ Samantha Ronson, seems to have now fallen for Michael Phelps, the Olympic golden boy. The actress is reported to be begging the US swimmer to take her out for a date. However, the 23-year-old is not so interested in the offer, according to sources.

But the Mean Girls star is leaving no stone unturned to land the opportunity. "At first he thought it was a joke when she got in touch. But she's since been phoning and texting constantly. It's become a running joke in his camp. Lindsay has been trying to meet up with him," Contactmusic quoted a source, as telling Britain's Daily Mirror.

"They're both going to the MTV Video Music Awards next month so they'll be sure to see each other properly then. Phelps is certainly flattered by all the attention but it's not clear how seriously he's taking it all," the source added.

Meanwhile, Lindsay's dad Michael Lohan has launched a scathing attack on the actress' close friend Ronson, insisting that she's using his daughter to gain publicity. Michael has accused DJ Ronson of using Lindsay to boost her fame after hearing the news that Ronson may write a 'tell-all' book about her life.

It is so important to swimming that we know who Michael Phelps is supposedly dating.

It is almost as important as whether he is going to retire or continue swimming?

It is probably more important then whether he is going to continue being coached by his present coach or if he is going to be coached by team Darra?

Is this the rumour thread? Are we soon going to hear that Phelps is going to fly in a space craft? Phelps enlisting in The Army or The Navy?

Or is all the stuff here just plain old gossip?

Okay what is going on???? I was just on Aus Yahoo and lookie at what I saw:

http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/b/newidea/18298/stephanie-and-michaels-romantic-reunion/

Looks like Phelps has fallen hard for Australia's Stephanie Rice, according to this article Steph has flown to the US and was seen in Phelps home town and they were both spotted together looking very couply. What's more apparently Phelps has fallen so hard he has taken Steph to meet his mum and sisters. What the???? Is this true or what????

Okay I'm just an aussie girl and the media here is not as huge as it is in the US and since this place is crawling with US members, I was just wanting to ask do you guys know of this and is it true?????
