Michael Phelps’ girlfriend reveals she was born intersex

Because apparently this is news, Michael Phelps, Olympic gold medal winning swimmer and lover of substances both inhaled and drunk, has a girlfriend. And that girlfriend has just announced publicly that she was born intersex. While this seems like a private matter that no one should ever have to discuss publicly if they’re not so inclined, Phelps’ girlfriend, Taylor Lianne Chandler, apparently felt like she needed to clear up inaccurate reports after stories started appearing claiming that she was born male and later became a female.

In actuality, Taylor was born intersex, with male external genitalia but no testicles and a uterus but no ovaries. She actually underwent corrective surgery to remove the male genitalia in her 20s and began taking testosterone blockers around the same time. She has always lived as a female.

From Taylor’s Facebook page:

‘I was never a man, never lived as a man. No one can say they knew me as a man or produce a photo of me as a man.’

She then adds, ‘There are people that remember me as an androgynous child at times because of what was forced upon me.’

She is also revealing how in love she is with Phelps, and claims the two clicked after meeting on Tinder.

‘Spending time with him was like a teenage love affair,’ she says.

‘I have never felt so comfortable and accepted in every way as I did with him.’

Apparently they have an amazing sex life and it’s all great – so where’s the problem? Well, apparently she never told Phelps about this. She insists that she never lied to him, it just never came up and now she’s afraid that he won’t want to be with her.

This whole situation is a mess that should NOT be playing out in public. It’s between two people – and the problem isn’t that she’s intersex, but I suppose that she kept something so important from her partner. But again, that’s not for me to cast judgment on. In other words, nothing to see here…

Michael Phelps is going to rehab

Michael Phelps is a bit of a fuck up, and he knows it. After getting arrested and charged with a DUI, someone’s given him some home truths and now he’s checking himself into rehab to get some help for his issues. Instead of doing this quietly, he decided to announce it on Twitter, as you do. As usual, read from bottom to top:

Michael Phelps “deeply sorry” for his DUI arrest

Michael Phelps

Dear God, what’s wrong with people? Early Tuesday morning, Michael Phelps – yes, the weed smoking Olympic swimming champ, as the media keeps pointing out – was arrested and charged with a DUI. He was driving around Baltimore, MD at about 1:45 am and was pulled over for doing 84 MPH in a 45 MPH area. He failed his sobriety test.

So what’s he got to say for himself? Well, he’s “deeply sorry”, of course.

“Earlier this morning, I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines,” Phelps said in a statement. “I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down.”

You’re right – those words don’t mean anything at all. How hard is it NOT to get behind the wheel of a car when you’re wasted? Honestly! Especially when you’re rich and can, say, afford to call a taxi or hire a personal driver to take your sorry ass wherever you need to be at 2am? Get out of here with that “sorry” bullshit. Imagine how sorry you WOULD have been if you’d have killed someone because you thought you were a tough guy who could drive home under the influence?  Ugh.

Love It or Leave It: Michael Phelps’s Mustache, Gross

A Muppet, right? Doesn’t Michael Phelps look exactly like a Muppet? Because oh, hey. Michael Phelps looks exactly like a Muppet.

This is the Olympic swimmer’s new look, and yes, that’s a champagne bottle that he’s holding in this second picture. Can we talk about that for a second? I don’t like champagne—not at all. My husband knows not to get champagne around the holidays (even for New Year’s) because I don’t drink it, and even champagne-based mixed drinks like mimosas … oh gosh, no thanks. That being said, I’m more of a wine lady. I like nothing more than a good, dry red wine. I also like some mixed drinks, mostly those that have tequila in them. I do love me a good tequila. What do you guys like, or rather, don’t like?

I know—this entire post got way, way off topic, but that sometimes happens. It’s not as if there’s anything else that’s all that interesting about Michael Phelps other than the fact that he’s seriously starting to resemble the more masculine of Bert and Ernie.

Phelpsy Was in a Car Crash!


Phelpsy and I have a cosmic connection. Let me explain: I was in a nasty car crash last week. Then, tonight, I was at this dueling piano bar and there was this totally wasted chick and she was hanging over all these guys, but there was this one she was paying the most attention to, and I realized his face looked exactly like Michael Phelps, but his body wasn’t exactly Phelpsy quality. And then I turned to my girlfriend and relayed my observation. And then I Twittered it, because when I have an important thought like that, it’s crucial the world know immediately.

But then I started getting all these tweets back alerting me to the fact that Michael Phelps got in a car wreck tonight! ZOMG! Phelpsy was practically in my bar and then he got in a car wreck just like me and this is definitive proof that we are soulmates.

Phelpsy’s Cadillac hit a Honda Accord and what sounds like a third parked car. Nobody was seriously injured and, shockingly enough, police say there was no sign alcohol was involved. Good for you, Phelpsy! Driving sober for once!

Phelpsy Doesn’t Value Our Relationship

Ohhh Phelpsy! Why do you continue to trample upon our love? We have such an amazing thing going on here, me with my undying love and respect for you, and you with your Size 14 penis. It’s the perfect relationship. And yet you seem intent on throwing your wee-wee into anything you meet at a strip club. Take this chick, who’s talking to News of the World about the threesome she and another stripper had with you last year.

Apparently this young woman was impressed with Phelpsy’s stamina (Duh! He’s an Olympic athlete!) but says he chews tobacco constantly (Ew!) and has a whole bunch of chicks he hooks up with on a regular basis. Also he refused to take her to a nice restaurant, instead inviting her to dine with him at Taco Bell. “That was it,” she said. “He just bought me some soft tacos. No romantic candlelit dinner. He HAD said he’d take me to The Capital Grille which is one of the city’s swankiest restaurants, but it never happened.”

Listen, sweetheart. You’re obviously the kind of girl who will bang him and then talk about it to News of the World. You’re Taco Bell quality! Phelpsy, when you and I finally make our love a reality, I promise I will not talk to any newspapers about it. I may mention it on this teensy tiny little blog I have, but that’s all! Promise!

Phelpsy’s Not Dating Miss California!!!


Oh, happy day! After Miss California was all like, “Well I miiiight be dating Michael Phelps, but I’m not telling because I’m a douchebag,” Phelpsy himself stepped in to deny the rumors. BAM! BITCH GOES DOWN!

“I’m not dating anybody,” he said Wednesday at the opening of the Omega flagship boutique in NYC. “I’m single. My private life stays private.”

And as for her answer to the gay marriage question?

“That’s the cool thing about America – everybody has their opinion,” he said. “I’m not saying I support her. I’m not saying I don’t support her.” Oh, come on, Phelpsy! You should openly support gay marriage! If someone wants to be legally wed to a size 14 penis, they should be granted that right, regardless of whether they’re man or woman.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump — who owns the Miss Universe organization — is finally weighing in on the controversy. “Miss California has done a wonderful job, that was her belief,” he said. “It wasn’t a bad answer, that was simply her belief.” Trump added that Prejean’s question was “a bit unlucky,” arguing that no matter how she answered the question “she was going to get killed.” Agreed.
