Earlier this week, swimmer RYAN LOCHTE'S mom provided some Olympic TMI when she revealed that her son doesn't have time for a relationship, so he, "goes out on one-night stands." Well, America's most compact, sex-obsessed minx DR. RUTH had a few things to say about that. First and foremost, she wants to make sure Ryan is using PROTECTION. She Tweeted, "Hopefully Mr. Lochte, who wears a rubber cap while swimming, wears a rubber somewhere else during all these 1 night stands." She also had a lot to say about Ryan's mom revealing his sex secrets , "Seems to me your mom shouldn't be discussing your sex life on nat'l TV."
JOHN MAYER and KATY PERRY may be hooking up. Or maybe they're just taking things slow. (???) Either way, it looks like SOMETHING is going on. Wednesday night, they hit a Los Angeles restaurant called Pace, then finished up the night at LINDSAY LOHAN'S favorite hangout, the Chateau Marmont. A source says that at dinner they were, "holding hands across the table, sneaking kisses and laughing."
Maybe JENNIFER LOPEZ'S boyfriend CASPER SMART wasn't going to a gay peepshow OR an exotic massage parlor that day that he was photographed outside a porno shop. See, upstairs in that same building is the Diamond Cuts BARBER SHOP. And some barbers there claim Casper came in for a SKIN FADE. Now, he did go to the porno shop briefly, but only to use their ATM.
Despite all the rumors over the past few weeks, MARIAH CAREY is the only guaranteed judge on "American Idol" next year. So assuming there's still a seat up for grabs, SNOOP DOGG would be interested or, make that SNOOP LION, as he now wants to be called. In an interview this week, Snoop said, quote, "I'll do 'American Idol'." There's no indication that "Idol" has even considered Snoop at this point.
