Amanda Beard Disses Michael Phelps

Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard thought it would be a good idea to diss super-Olympian Michael Phelps. When asked if the two were dating she said "Eww! No. Come on." Like that wasn't bad enough, she went on to dig herself a deeper hole and say, "Eww, that's so nasty! ... Come on, I have really good taste."

Naturally, she didn't think of the aftermath when she said those mean comments. Now she feels like a fool so she has decided to apologize. In her apology she says, "I never meant to say anything rude about Michael. I am 100-percent sorry for what I said. I take full responsibility for it."

She then adds, "When we are sitting in the stands, we are very grateful that Michael swims for the U.S. It's cool to be a part of the team on which Michael won eight gold medals. We know each other and Michael is like my little brother. He jokes around me all the time and it's all good-natured. But obviously people who don't know me can take it the wrong way."

Does she think that apology is gonna make things better? She probably already hurt his feelings. Hey, she even hurt ours! Then again, why should Michael be hurting, he's reportedly dating a much HOTTER model than Amanda!
