Amanda Beard on Michael Phelps: His Show Would Be Boring

Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard is clearly still a little bent out of shape over rumors of a hookup between her and Michael Phelps, because she didn't exactly have kind words for him this past weekend during the Victoria's Secret Fashion show.

Hollyscoop.com caught up with Beard on the pink carpet to get the scoop on her training schedule, her thoughts on Michael Phelps and whether or not she will be watching his upcoming reality show.

In regards to getting her own reality show, Beard told Hollyscoop: "I would be open [to it], but mine would be completely different than someone like Michael Phelps'. I think he's going to be training and working until the next Olympics and that’s kind of boring to watch."

So we take it you wouldn't watch the show? "No!" said Amanda. She went on to talk about how her show would be much more exciting than Phelps. "[Mine] would be a little more fun, a little bit more exciting. I do mostly extreme sports so we ride dirt bikes, motorcycles and snowboard and we're just kind of running around doing crazy events all the time.

"Swimming is one of those sports that’s not exciting to watch all the time because there’s the bottom of the pool you don’t get to talk. What's exciting about that? I'm being honest," she added.

To lighten the subject Amanda talked to Hollyscoop about her current swimming schedule. She said: "I don’t have to train 6 or 7 hours a day so I have a little bit of free time for me. I'm just working on having fun with life and putting things together for life after swimming, and I'm trying to do a little bit more TV work, hopefully to be standing where your standing one day." If that's the case, let's just hope she never ends up interviewing Phelps on the carpet!

To see the actual show make sure to check out the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show on Wednesday December 3rd (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
