A few blogs reported through sources (read: wild imaginations) that Amanda Beard and Michael Phelps hooked up / are dating. This video may be evidence to the contrary. Amanda called into the Johnjay and Rich show to deny the rumors. Her exact words were, “eww, eww, eww, eww,” and “C’mon, I have really good taste.”
Oh, I know, right? Michael Phelps is a goofy looking bastard and Amanda is a Greek goddess. Why would she ever willingly, without a gun to her head, date a guy (eight time gold medal winner in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, fourteen overall) who’s so obviously beneath her (two career gold medals). She’s Aphrodite incarnate.
