Well, it looks like things are coming up for Lochte (sort of)!

On Thursday, the lozenge company announced the Olympics star will appear in their print ads and commercials. Appropriately, their campaign will be about how the drops are "forgiving on your throat." Oh boy…

According to CEO Rider McDowell:

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

no title

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."

For her part, Solo said she was "saddened" by being suspended for six months over comments that were fueled by her love and passion for the game in an emotional official statement. She wrote:

Ryan Lochte In Talks To Join Dancing With The Stars — Looking To Fix His Image After Rio Robbery Lie??

no title

Dancing with the Scoundrels???

Ryan Lochte may have won gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics, but that impressive feat was completely overshadowed by the fact that he was caught lying about a robbery that never actually took place while he was in Rio de Janeiro.

Luckily for the swimmer, America is a pretty forgiving nation… as long as you have a platform like Dancing with the Stars to help fix your image, of course!

That's right — according to multiple sources close to the reality TV show, Ryan is in final talks to be competing for the Mirrorball Trophy this September in an effort to make amends for his international embarrassment!

However, the 32-year-old athlete may be the only gold medalist dancing this year… Simone Biles has already been rumored to be part of the DWTS cast, though her work schedule likely won't permit the grueling rehearsal process.

Other possible contestants include Amber Rose, JoJo Fletcher, and Jake T. Austin… but we'll know the official line-up of 13 dancers when Good Morning America reveals the cast on Tuesday, August 30!

Do u think Ryan can clean up his act when DWTS premieres Monday, September 12 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC??

Ryan is already having a particularly bad week as he's lost his MAJOR sponsors and reportedly feels like his life is "crumbling", but next the 32-year-old is going to be punished by the United States Olympic Committee!

It was only a few days ago that USOC CEO Scott Blackmun told the press Lochte and his fellow swimmers would face discipline for their actions, but now TMZ reports some sources are worried the punishment won't be fair!

While the studly swimmer's lawyer, Jeff Ostrow, is pretty convinced that the USOC will hand down a fair punishment to his client, those close to the four swimmers believe

no title

Ryan Lochte is losing sponsors and getting a lot of heat after he lied about being robbed at gunpoint while in Rio de Janeiro.

But one of the swimmer's Olympics teammates insists he's not a bad guy, even though the athlete didn't come clean right away.

On Monday, Conor Dwyer sat down with Maria Menounos during her SiriusXM radio show to address his fellow sports star's scandal.

When the E! host brought up the controversy, the 27-year-old maintained that the New York native is still a good person, in spite of everything that happened, saying:

"I've known him for a long time. I've trained with him, been teammates with him, and he's genuinely a good guy. So, it hurts to see him in this position and make a mistake like that."

But, that doesn't necessarily mean the Illinois athlete condones Mr. Lochte's attempted coverup, because he added:

Ryan Lochte Responds To Being Dropped By Speedo In New Statement!

Ryan Lochte has something to say about the Speedo news!

Ryan Lochte is taking it like a champ??

As we previously reported, Speedo released a statement on Monday announcing the termination of their longtime sponsorship of the swimmer following his Rio robbery scandal during the Olympics.

The 32-year-old basically owned up to his "immature" behavior in an exclusive interview with Matt Lauer which aired over the weekend, but it clearly wasn't good enough for the swimsuit brand.
