Michael Phelps & Stephanie Rice, Sitting In A Tree

A few days ago former gold medalist swimmer and nude fuzzy little creature activist Amanda Beard wanted everybody to know that she wasn’t interested in dating super human swimmer Michael Phelps. I believe her exact words were “Eww, no!” (Now we know why she has to pose nude for PETA instead of speaking for them.) Well, Michael doesn’t seem to be too heartbroken over the incident.

Not only did he find out recently that Lindsay Lohan thinks he’s amazing and wants to “hang out” with him, but he’s also found himself another swimmer to make out with. Phelps has been seen spending a lot of time with Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice, and by spending a lot of time with, I mean ramming his tongue down her throat.

From the NEW YORK POST:

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.”

Though neither side is confirming the relationship, I hear they’ve been walking around the Olympic Village with their hands in each other’s back pockets, and I’m pretty sure that’s just a step below engaged. Soon they will marry, and create an army of super-human swimmers bent on winning nine gold medals and world domination. Not necessarily in that order.

Stephanie Rice

As for what Amanda Beard thinks of the relationship, well, most people in the Olympic Village are pretty sure it’s been her writing “Stephanie Rice has herpes” in all the bathroom stalls.

Even if she does have herpes (which we don’t think she does), look at her. Who cares!?
