WAIT! Michael Phelps wears clothes other than a speedo?!

On Sunday, the famed swimmer and fiancée Nicole Johnson attended the MTV VMAs looking like a gold-medal couple!

While the Olympic champion kept it casual, the former Miss California USA looked statuesque in a sexy black gown and white shoes.

Although the athletic duo aren't creating new fashion trends with these outfits, they don't need to!

Phelps is a true American hero, and we are so glad he's in New York for the festivities!

We see you, ladies!

Forget the Olympics, the ladies of the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team totally made a statement on the MTV VMAs red carpet! How?

Well, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, Aly Raisman, and Madison Kocian essentially wore red carpet versions of their competitive leotards. In fact, the group may've even shone brighter than their gold medals as they each donned different glittery ensembles.

Unfortunately, Gabby Douglas was MIA from the Hollywood event as she was in disposed due to a mystery illness. Whomp, whomp!

Still, being the constant team player she is, Miz Douglas took to Instagram to cheer on her fabulous teammates. The American athlete posted:

Did Al Roker's Ryan Lochte Rant Get Him In Trouble With NBC?!

Ryan Lochte certainly upset a lot of people for lying about getting robbed in Rio… but is he the only one pissing people off in this scandal?!

Last week, Al Roker SLAMMED the sports star on TODAY for fabricating a story about being held up at gunpoint while in the Brazil city for the 2016 Olympics.

The broadcaster called out the scandalized celeb for repeatedly lying about the whole thing, but it seems his on-air rant might've rubbed some people at the morning show the wrong way.

A source told Page Six some staffers on the show are "embarrassed," saying:

"There were several producers and talent who were left trying to explain Al's over-the-top behavior. Several insiders found themselves wanting to distance themselves from his response."

Considering the athlete caused a global scandal and pretty much humiliated the US, we don't think it was unreasonable for the weatherman to be pissed.

But, insiders claim NBC did not approve of the 62-year-old's explosive outburst, adding:

Wait, What? Ryan Lochte Is Set To Appear At Wizard World Comic Con Following His Scandal In Rio

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueRyan LochteOlympics

no title

We guess Ryan Lochte is hurting for cash after losing some major endorsements.

On Friday, it was revealed Ryan will appear at the Wizard World Comic Con in Richmond, Virginia next month. The bizarre announcement comes on the heels of authorities in Rio officially charging Lochte with filing a false police report on August 18.

For those who have no idea what Wizard World Comic Con is, it brings "pop culture to life" in multiple cities every year. The gathering often hosts a variety of reality stars, former boy banders, and retired celebs.

At the Richmond event, R.L. will appear alongside other washed up stars like Gene Simmons, AJ Mclean, and a TON of WWE stars. The invited celebs will pose for photo-ops, sign autographs, and mingle with fans.

Here's the kicker to this whole thing — a photo-op with Mr. Lochte costs $50 dollars while his autograph costs NOTHING. The athlete is the only attendee NOT charging for his signature.

To put those facts in perspective, fellow attendee Joey Fatone gets $45 dollars for each fan picture and $30 dollars for every autograph. It's a pretty staggering comparison considering the swimmer once had endorsement deals worth MILLIONS of dollars.

Well, that's what you get for lying and disrespecting an entire country! Sucks to suck!

So, will YOU go see Ryan on September 10?

Authorities In Rio Officially Charge Ryan Lochte With Filing A False Police Report

| Filed under: Legal MattersRyan LochteOlympics

It looks like authorities in Rio are serious about holding Ryan Lochte accountable!

According to TMZ, police in the 2016 Olympic city have officially charged Ryan with filing a false police report on August 14. The news comes on the heels of rampant speculation as to whether or not cops would punish Lochte for using a fake robbery story to cover up his act of vandalism at a gas station.

If convicted of the crime, the swimmer could face up to six-months in jail.

As for the likelihood of R.L. physically spending time behind bars, the possibility is slim to none. Sources close to the athlete swear he'll never go back to Rio, and unfortunately he can't be extradited back to Brazil for the offense.

For those who want to see the 32-year-old held accountable, it looks like they'll have to find solace in his recently lost endorsements.

We'll keep you updated as this case progresses!

Hope Solo Responds To Suspension That's The Same Punishment Michael Phelps Got For DUI! Was Her Suspension Too Harsh?

| Filed under: ZportzPollsSad SadMichael PhelpsSoccerOlympicsSwimmingControversy

Unsportsmanlike conduct is bad, but there's no way it should be comparable to drunk driving.

Yet after Hope Solo called the Swedish soccer team "a bunch of cowards" last week, she was suspended the same amount of time as Michael Phelps was for his DUI!

Almost two weeks ago, the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team's goalie delivered some trash talk after unexpectedly losing to Sweden in the Rio Olympics quarterfinal game, and U.S. Soccer swiftly suspended the athlete over comments that "counter to the organization's principles."
