Playing the Field: Ryan Lochte’s secret crush, Chad Johnson’s porn career

The marriage has lasted 41 days.

Michael Phelps might be getting all the medals in London, but Ryan Lochte is getting something a lot better than medals.

Apparently, the second-best swimmer in the world is quite the ladies man — so much so that his mom not only knows about it, but she’s proud. But we’ll let the scandal-mongers at The Word fill you in on that. What we wanted to discuss was Lochte’s rapidly growing street cred. Here’s what we know: Lochte wears a diamond-crusted grill, and he loves rapper Lil’ Wayne and repping his sponsors.

And he might be dating a semifamous actress/singer/songwriter named K. Michelle. The curvy and vivacious star of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” was rumored to have been dating Lochte (the two have been spotted together on a few occasions), but K. Michelle recently gave an interview in which she makes it clear that she and Lochte are just friends — although she adds that he is an “inspiration,” a “fun person” and “great to look at.”

Yes, they probably aren’t dating. However, he has most definitely been in her pool, if you catch our drift.

The real Chad Johnson is back

Now that the great snake charmer Bill Belichick is out of the way, Chad Johnson is free to be himself again. Speaking at a training camp press conference the other day, the man formerly known as Ocho Cinco touched on a variety of topics, from smoking weed with Gene Simmons to his desire to pursue a porn career once his playing days are over.

“I’m always looking for a second job,” Johnson said. “Thinking about going into porn. It’s not funny. I got to earn a living. I’m being serious. I mean, that’s what I would do.”

Imagine the porn name possibilities here: Hanging Chad, Chad “Check out my Hall of Fame” Johnson, Ocho Kinko, Fly Pattern … or, if he didn’t want to limit himself to heterosexual films, he could simply use his playing position as a name. If you don’t know his position, look it up.
