Exclusive: K.Michelle Talks To Funky Dineva About Her Dating Life And Ryan Lochte


We recently caught up with Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta star K.Michelle to find out directly from the woman herself what the status of her relationship with Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is. Contrary to some reports, she assured us they were just good friends.

We just wanted to pass along another video in which K.Michelle discusses her friendship with Lochte and she tells our very our special correspondent, Funky Dineva that she is not dating Ryan. “That’s my friend,” she reiterated. “He’s a dope person, a good person…I didn’t say I was dating him, [just that] I’m dating.” We love that this clip begins with Dineva telling her to “spill it,” but K.Michelle is sticking to her guns on this one, and there’s apparently nothing to spill.

    Newly Single Bret Michaels Will Not Be Returning To Rock Of Love Any Time Soon

    Bret Michaels Not Returning To Rock Of Love
    As soon as the news of Bret Michael’s broken engagement hit, the first thing on a lot of people’s minds was “Does this mean more Rock Of Love?” Well, sadly, no. At least not now.

    Michaels‘ participation in another season of the show has been such a hot topic this week that his rep, Jo Mignano, released a statement denying that a new season was in the works. Says Mignano: “The truth is, anyone who knows Bret’s family and knows him as a father and a friend would truly understand that he is hurting over the separation, and the last thing he his thinking about is doing a dating show.”

    While no dating shows are in Michaels’ future, he is entertaining the thought of participating in All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. He may be done with dating, but he’s not done with the Donald.

    La La Anthony is in London at the moment to support her husband Carmelo as he and the rest of the U.S. Men’s Basketball Team attempt to win the gold at the Olympics, but as she tells Savannah Guthrie of The Today Show, the trip is also work. La La revealed that she’s also filming a portion of the third season of La La’s Full Court Life at the 2012 Olympic Games because, as she explains, “When do you get to capture London during the Olympics and all this excitement?”

    “I thought it would be great to film some of this while we’re here. So yes, the show will be filming here and capture all the behind-the-scenes-action that sometimes you don’t get to see on TV,” she continued. Well, you know we love watching La La no matter where she films, but this will definitely add an element of excitement to the show. In the clip above, La La also talks about the hug Melo received from the First Lady, Michelle Obama, and how she hopes this means she’ll get a hug from the President one day herself. That’s something we want to see on her show, for sure.
