Michael Phelps confirms he is not dating Miss California

Michael Phelps would rather suck on a bong than make out with Miss California. Phelps is denying Carrie Prejean’s non-denial denial that she and the Olympian are an item. Phelps confirms that he’s single, and that’s all – he wants to maintain a modicum of privacy, so I’ll respect that. He also doesn’t confirm or deny his support of Miss California’s anti-gay marriage stance.

Michael Phelps is denying rumors that he is romancing controversial Miss California contestant Carrie Prejean.

“I’m not dating anybody,” he told Usmagazine.com Wednesday at the opening of the Omega flagship boutique in NYC. “I’m single. My private life stays private.”

(Prejean, 21, was coy earlier this week when asked about rumors they’re an item. “He is a great man. Wouldn’t you like to know?” she said on The Billy Bush Show Monday.)

As for Prejean’s anti-gay marriage answer during the Miss USA competition, Phelps tells Us, “That’s the cool thing about America – everybody has their opinion.”

“I’m not saying I support her,” Phelps then added. “I’m not saying I don’t support her.”

That sucks for Miss California – Michael Phelps shot down that rumor pretty hard. Chuckle. I’m sure everybody has already said this, but why would Michael Phelps want a Miss USA runner-up? The boy could get a Miss USA. Or even better, a girl with beauty-pageant looks and an education. I know Phelps has been seen with multiple strippers and random party girls, but I’d like to think that’s just a phase. He’ll settle down with someone nice, I know it! Someone he could bring home to his mom Debbie!

    Miss California…shot down again! She really needs to keep within her own circle. Doesn’t Ted Haggard or Larry Craig have a nice boy for her to date?

  2. Annie says:

    8 gold medals aside, am I only the one that fails to see his appeal?

  3. Lollipop says:

    @Annie: The 8 gold medals is his appeal.

  4. OXA says:

    The wallet full of money from the endorsement deals is the attraction.

  5. Seven says:

    Hes got a nice body, maybe thats his appeal….bleh.. SAY SOMETHING NICE! lol

  6. Codzilla says:

    He got absolutely bludgeoned by the ugly stick, didn’t he?

  7. Kaiser says:

    Annie – Yeah, for me it’s his body. Not just the muscles and strength, but I love tall, lanky men. And I don’t think he’s ugly – when he smiles, he’s very cute (like a mangy, happy puppy).

  8. Annie says:

    ROFL at Mangy. :)

    Yea, I could be down with a man who could toss me around. :)

  9. RAN says:

    LMAO at Codzilla! My thoughts EXACTLY! :P

  10. Lili says:

    “He got absolutely bludgeoned by the ugly stick, didn’t he?”

    Jealous much?

  11. Codzilla says:

    Lili: Yeah, because it’s always been my dream to look like something that went through a garbage disposal and lived.

  12. RAN says:

    You people with the jealousy comments are ridiculous. Seriously… can’t you come up with something more original and say… perhaps factual? You’re attacking a comment that was funny and… in the eye of that beholder and mine, completely accurate. The boy has skills, but he is butt ugly and I don’t give a sh1t whether you think I’m jealous or not.

    Edit – Codzilla, just saw your comment. Again LMAO :) You always make me laugh at this stuff

  13. Annie says:

    Exactly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    And right now, I’m beholding a bag over his head.

  14. Texas Gal says:

    Truth be told I clicked on this story bcuz I knew the comments would be funny & sure enough, you all didn’t dissapoint! I’m still laughing @ Codzilla’s garbage disposal comment!!!!

  15. geronimo says:

    LMAO Codzilla! Poor Michael. I think he’s one of those people who is transformed when he’s in his element (ie. water) but doesn’t really work on dry land.

  16. Wow says:

    Oh, please! Miss California is way out of Phelps’ league. He’s already shown the type of lifestyle he’s into. He likes strippers and bong parties. Do you really think Miss. CA would be down for that? Lol.

    —-

    Then he needs to be smiling *all* the time!

    It makes the bottom of his face wider.

    ‘He likes strippers and bong parties. Do you really think Miss. CA would be down for that?’

    Big dyed hair, pounds of makeup, spray tan. Give her some body glitter and a g string and there would be no difference between a stripper and a beauty contestant.

    Poor guy. He’s probably terrifed to say anything about anything after the bong scandal.

    Hee hee, love the beholding comment, Annie.

  19. julie says:

    Definitely not the best looking guy. Usually the personality can make a not so hot guy appealing but he doesn’t even have that in his favor. Ran into him a few times when he was at the University of Michigan and he’s a complete and total jerk. Thinks he’s God’s gift. So full of himself and not afraid to let people know it. Maybe he’s changed since then but it turned me off as a fan of his.

  20. nony says:

    Why is a critic always jealous? Sometimes it’s just a fact. He’s got 8 gold medals, but his face is a bit dopey (though honestly, I DO find him appealing). It is what it is, whatever– maybe that’s why he had so much time to practice earlier in life and prepare for his great success currently.

    He seems like a good guy, who’s worked extremely hard for his success- and since I love a good roor too, all the better, in my opinion.

    ps- oh. snap. miss california, you know she’s feelin’ like a sack o’ shit right now.

  21. becca says:

    *Snerk* Figures Miss Cali was an attention wh*re.

    Nice smackdown Michael, way to go!! :)

    Oh, and I read awhile back that Phelps already has a girlfriend. Or, at least he did when he came back from Beijing. Something most likely happened between them, because I would hope that Michael wouldn’t be going to strip clubs if he has a gf now.

  22. eternalcanadian says:

    Annie, nope you’re not alone. I also don’t see the appeal of him when there’s way hotter swimmers out there. I think it is the number of gold medals that makes him appealing because it sure isn’t his looks!

    Can’t believe this whole Miss California hating on the GLBT is still going on. She just doesn’t know when to shut up and admit she is a homophobe.

  23. Tia says:

    I totally agree with neelyo, Big dyed hair, pounds of makeup, spray tan. Give her some body glitter and a g string and there would be no difference between a stripper and a beauty contestant.

    That is hilarious.. Miss California is a complete whack job. She is basically a complete idiot who can’t think for herself and is still in the ignaramous dark ages.. but what do you expect from a conservative relgious freak ?? sad people are moving away from religion, it is things like this that make people do so.. sad… sad !!!!!
