Ryan Lochte

I Was BORN to Win 'DWTS'

TMZ Live


Olympic superstar Ryan Lochte says he was genetically-engineered to kick ass on "Dancing with the Stars" -- telling TMZ Live ... it's in his DNA to compete ... but that's just ONE of the many reasons he wants to do the show.

And, think "midget wrestling" is offensive? We talk to the little person who country star Zac Brown bowled a strike with ... and he adamantly disagrees ... you gotta hear why.

Plus, is Nivea out of its mind for dropping Rihanna for being too sexual? Some people in newsroom actually agree with the ballsy move.

(0:00) Olympic superstar Ryan Lochte is on the phone! He reveals whether or not he was one of the many sex-crazed athletes at the Olympic games, explains why "Dancing with the Stars" isn't a step down, and answers one question for the ladies in the office ... are his hipster glasses real or just for show?
(10:00) Stephanie Pratt's boyfriend calls BS on the cop that arrested him for assault -- but video of the incident only proves how stupid he was for hitting the gas pedal while a cop was writing him a ticket.
(15:00) Sharon Osbourne quits "America's Got Talent" because NBC won't let her son Jack compete on a boot camp show due to his MS. But it looks like NBC did the right thing.
(18:00) The little person who Zac Brown bowled with calls in -- and explains why the term "midget bowling" is NOT offensive.
(23:00) Nivea drops Rihanna for being too sexual -- sounds like the dumbest move ever ... but some people in the newsroom say she's gotten too raunchy to represent a family company.
(27:00) "Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham releases a song ... and it's amazing! Kidding, it's horrible. Don't act surprised.
(29:00) Paris Hilton has boyfriend number 1,000 -- and Harvey thinks she's independent and has it all figured out.
(33:00) Michael Phelps' smoking hot girlfriend has been around ... the world. We have pictures of her jet-setting, party girl ways.
(37:00) The wife of the "Snow White" director who hooked up with Kristen Stewart was pictured without her wedding ring! Uh oh.
(42:00) We take your calls!

Harvey always speaks like his opinion is THE opinion. Look at how he just so egotistically smashes over everyone else when they dare have a different opinion and he always has that little "I know everything" smirk, it's so obnoxious.

"Midget" bowling is extra hard to rule on... but there's not a ton of jobs out there for little people, so it's hard to hate on the ones who are paying their bills with method

Harvey and lube

i thought Martin Henderson was just out at a bar when some dude picked him up and started throwing him around. Quite apart from anything I thought there was no consent and it was just outright assault?

How much lube does Mike use in his hair? Dude, you'd look much better without all the grease and that stupid soul patch, and whatever that chin thing is.

Good, I am so happy that a sponser has finally realized that Rhianna is not a good role model for anyone and dumped her butt. Now I will make sure to buy Nivia products.

I bet Harvey got excited talking about lube.
Just wait until he talks about gerbils.

That chick with the glasses talking about Rhianna annoys me every time she comes on, one of the most obnoxious people on the TMZ staff and she comes off as so incredibly stupid and shallow that it's painful to watch her.
