Following Michael Phelps' DUI arrest last week, says that he is taking a break from swimming to "attend a program" that will help him better understand himself.

The 29-year-old, who was reportedly boozing and gambling at a casino (possibly with purported girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler) is at his low point now.

According to his official Twitter account, the athletic legend writes:

Mike Phelps
  • "The past few days have been extremely difficult."
  • "I recognize that this is not my first lapse in judgment, and I am extremely disappointed with myself."
  • "I’m going to take some time away to attend a program that will provide the help I need to better understand myself."
  • "Swimming is a major part of my life, but right now I need to focus my attention on me as an individual, and do the necessary work to learn from this experience and make better decisions in the future."

The 22-time Olympic medalist was charged last week with DUI, excessive speed and crossing double lines on I-95 in Baltimore, where he lives.

Katy Perry was the celebrity guest on ESPN College GameDay Saturday, and rarely will you see a pop singer contribute so much to a college football show.

At one point, she threw a series of corn dogs toward the camera to rile up LSU fans, whose smell she likened to the greasy food product ... obviously:

Wearing a pink and black rug-type sweater-jersey that she may or may not have gotten from the University of Oregon, Perry wasn't close to done.

The 29-year-old openly hit on handsome Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight when asked to pick a winner for the Sooners' game against TCU.

"Trevor Knight, call me!" Perry shouted, while holding up a custom-made, heart-shaped sign with Knight's picture on it. He has a girlfriend, sadly.

The Oklahoma football program indoctrinated Katy into the fan club on Twitter, but given that TCU ended up winning, they may want to rescind that ...

Early on Tuesday morning Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI. The following day Phelps apologized for the incident, but offered no new details with regard to the arrest.

Well, we've received some information that may shed some light on it ...

Several days later, very little has been confirmed, other than the fact that Phelps was boozing and gambling in a casino for several hours before getting behind the wheel.

Though neither Phelps nor local law enforcement have been forthcoming with regard to new details, we may now know the identity of the new lady in Phelps' life.

One who was reportedly with him on the night of his arrest.

An anonymous tipster informs THG that locals in the Canton area of Batlimore in which Michael lives have determined that Phelps is romantically involved with Washington, D.C. resident Taylor Lianne Chandler.

And from the sound of things, their relationship is a dramatic one:

A lottery challenge took place on The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 4, while the constants struggled to keep up with their plans over at the ranch.

To win "The Lottery" was to leave the ranch and go home for a week, with trainer in tow. The catch? That one person would represent the whole team.

The rest of which? Left trainer-less, and very possibly directionless.

That's the irony of the reward on The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 4. They call came to get away from the real world. Are they ready to go back?

Add in the pressure of being the one person representin' ... tough.

Damien Woody, from the blue team, was the one selected, and trainer Jessie accompanied the two-time Super Bowl winner back to New Jersey.

His eye has been on the prize from the start. Can he keep it there?

Damien's wife and seven (!) kids are all proud of him, so that's got to help, while Jessie and he talk more about what led him to this epic journey.

Feeling a little uninspired today? Can't believe it's still not the weekend? Well on days like this, you just gotta keep livin', man, L-I-V-I-N, and we've got just the video clip to help you do exactly that:

Yes, Matthew McConaughey's visit to a University of Texas at Austin football practice will help you surf the perfect wave of serenity all the way to the Island of Eternal Truth. Or maybe it's just really funny. You be the judge:

Following what must be the most zen-like pep talk in history (We've titled the speech "A Time to Chill."), McConaughey leads the team in a round of Wolf of Wall Sreet-style chest thumping - a practice that we imagine will now become a staple in locker rooms across the country.

Sadly, at no point does he spark a doob and ask, "Did you score a touchdown last week? It'd be a lot cooler if you did?"

On the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Shelley Smith has come out and revealed her own diagnosis on Twitter.

"I now join the one in eight women who are battling breast cancer. Early detection will save my life. Tell loved ones," wrote the long-time sports journalist, who has been with ESPN since 1997. "My tough cancer treatment will begin in January. Until then, I spread the praise of mammograms and ultrasound. Early detection."

Smith also acknowledged her "cancer warrior sisters" in a subsequent message, along with "so many others who are inspiring me."

Is Kate Middleton expecting twins? That's the rumor going around royal circles, for the second time in as many years, and Kate Middleton pregnancies.

At the root of this is Kate's severe morning sickness, or hyperemesis gravidarum, that has sidelined her both times and is often associated with twins.

Twins didn't materialize as rumored the first time Prince William got Kate Middleton pregnant, of course, so it would still be a long shot this time.

But a lot of people over in the UK would apparently take that action!

The royal betting market, which hilariously exists, has seen plenty of wagering on the 32-year-old having not one, but two royal babies come 2015.

The William Hill betting firm says it recently received about 200 bets on the arrival of twins, including "a significant gamble" that was made in York.

That's enough to send the odds tumbling down from 20:1 to 9:1.

Eighteen-time gold medalist Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI around 2 am on Tuesday morning after being pulled over for going 84 in a 45 MPH zone.

Phelps addressed the incident on Twitter today:

Phelps

"Earlier this morning I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines," Phelps tweeted.

"I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down."

Well, at least he owned up to it, though it's not like he had much choice.

There's no word yet on what sort of punishment Phelps can expect to face.

TMZ is reporting that Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI while driving in Maryland late last night.

Michael Phelps Olympics

Phelps was reportedly doing 84 in a 45 mph zone when he was stopped by officers who immediately realized the record breaking swimmer was very drunk.

Sources say Phelps didn't make it through his field sobriety and a breathalyzer indicated that his BAC was nearly twice the legal limit.

This isn't the first time Phelps has been busted for driving under the influence.

In 2004, a then 19-year-old Phelps was pulled over and found to be intoxicated. He struck a plea deal and got off with 18 months probation.

Phelps cleaned up his act and went on to win an astonishing 18 Olympic gold medals.

In 2008 the so-called Flying Fish slipped up again, however, as Phelps was caught smoking weed while partying with college kids.
