With his reality show, “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” set to premiere on April 21 on E!, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss the upcoming series and his future aspirations. And while the Olympics star may have some tread left on his tires as it relates to competitive swimming, out of the pool, he’s reaching for the stars, so long as those stars are reality show stars who are more style than substance, vapid, inane and more flash than talent. So, so, so much less talent. Ryan Lochte says that as far as his goals are concerned, he is aiming high and hopes to pattern his post-swimming career on none other than Kim Kardashian. Yep, he wants to be the next Kim Kardashian. Jeah, indeed. To set one’s standards of success by utilizing the career path set by Kim Kardashian (who should be divorced from Brooklyn Nets center Kris Humprhies within the next decade, not to mention have five kids) may be a questionable tact at best, Lochte insists that is what he envisions as the road he should take to ensure relevancy in this crazy, reality show-obsessed society. Lochte tells The Hollywood Reporter, “When I walk down the street, people recognize me, and that never happened before,” Lochte realizes this is his time to make his mark in the pop culture world, adding, “Now’s my chance.” And what better way to do so than by mimicking Kim Kardashian? He clearly possesses the same level of on-camera naturalness, as evidenced by this video, but he also seems to have some modicum of self-awareness and the ability to laugh at himself, as illustrated when he shot this humorous video for Funny or Die about peeing in pools. A definite departure from the cluelessness routinely exhibited by Kardashian. “Kim started from pretty much nothing, and now everyone everywhere knows who she is,” he says. “That’s what I want to do.” Aim high, young man. But if he really wants to be the next Kim Kardashian, a sex tape featuring him and some rapper — Lil’ Kim, perhaps? (just throwing names out there) — better be “leaked” on the double. Maybe some collagen implants in his butt wouldn’t hurt, either.

  • This guy is such a publicity *****. He should spend more time working on the next Olympics and less time trying to get on any show that will have him. He opens his mouth and drivel falls out. He's as dumb as a box of rocks!

Never underestimate the focus of a champion

After working for the Minnesota Timberwolves for six years, I got used to watching teams come into Target Center in Minneapolis, toy with the home team for 40 minutes and then finally get to the business of winning as the fourth quarter wound down. Teams turned it on like clockwork. It never occurred to me that such a thing took place in the NFL, but the Seattle Seahawks suddenly...

PETA to Nebraska: Punish player for killing raccoon

Gangwish was bit in the leg by a raccoon. One of the most bizarre stories of the year happened last Friday, when Nebraska DE Jack Gangwish tweeted that he tried taking a selfie with a raccoon, but the raccoon bit him in the leg, so Gangwish killed it with a wrench. Now, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are getting involved. PETA is predictably upset with the way things...

Report: Jimmy Rollins would green light trade to Dodgers

The Philadelphia Phillies would love to move shortstop Jimmy Rollins and the $11 million he’s owed in 2015. However, Rollins has ten and five rights, and would need to give his approval for any trade. He already shot down a trade to the Mets and wouldn’t approve a deal to the A’s. Rollins did say he would accept a move to the Yankees, but Phillies GM Ruben Amaro’s demands...

Astros reportedly ink Luke Gregerson to three-year deal

The Houston Astros wanted a top reliever, a sentiment we questioned yesterday. Today, they got him, inking former Oakland Athletic Luke Gregerson to a three-year, $18.5 million deal.

Jon Lester shows love for Red Sox fans in heartfelt tweets

Jon Lester’s final appearance with the Boston Red Sox was July 25, 2014, but the hope of a reunion between the two sides didn’t die until Wednesday morning. That’s when Lester signed a reported six-year contract for $155 million with the Chicago Cubs. Fans who held out hope the Red Sox would ultimately re-sign Lester after trading him at the MLB trade deadline were disappointed...
