Michael Phelps is not seeing Amanda Beard nude.
At least not more than anyone who hasn't bought that swimmer's Playboy issue.
With rumors swirling about these Olympians' activities out of the pool, Beard joked around with 93.7 KRQ Tucson's Johnjay and Rich in the Morning yesterday. Asked to classify her relationship with Phelps, Beard said:
"I am not dating Michael Phelps," adding, "Come on, I have really good taste."
Now, though, Beard is catching flak for her flippancy. She's been forced to clarify her remarks to a sensitive public:
"Everyone who knows me knows I can be a jokester, but I guess I took it too far," the four-time Olympian said. "I never meant to say anything rude about Michael. I am 100-percent sorry for what I said. I take full responsibility for it."
With that out of the way, let us know who you'd sleep with first: Michael Phelps or Mark Spitz?
