It looks like Olympic golden boy Michael Phelps is taking advantage of his newfound celebrity status. He and American Idol alum Carrie Underwood are dating? More photos and video of Michael and Carrie are below.
First of all, we must consider the source. The folks over at The National Enquirer are the culprits for this lovely gossip tidbit, and evidently Michael and Carrie have been text messaging each other since the Olympics and are now ready to go on their first date. Michael warned Carrie that going out to eat might not make a very good first impression on his part.
“I’m not so sure you’d want to see me eat! It might not make a great first impression.”
Hmmm, could his hearty breakfast of three fried egg sandwiches, a five egg omelet, bowl of grits, three chocolate chip pancakes, three slices of French toast with powdered sugar and two cups of coffee be that embarrassing? Heh heh… A word to the wise Michael, just don’t take her to a steakhouse…Carrie is a vegetarian!
Carrie just needs to stay away from athletes in general. Her relationship with Dallas Cowboys QB now love of Jessica Simpson’s life, Tony Romo, was over before it started and a source close to Carrie said:
“Carrie needs someone who is going to stick by her,” a skeptical pal of Carrie’s revealed to the National Enquirer. “She was devastated when her relationship with Tony Romo broke. The last thing she needs is a relationship with another high-profile celebrity who’s going to end up loving and leaving her.”
