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.

I don't know why a lot of people don't care for Ryan, but I think it would be cool for him to appear on DWTS. Must more appropriate than the already classically trained dancers who are ice skaters.

Mike and Harvey make good points, Old Spice still kicks ass, and Paris HIlton is more of a sweetie than a diva.

Harvey is such a big hypocrite. If Chris Brown had super smooth skin and was the spokesperson for Nivia products...Harvey would be spinning it the other way saying that he was an awful choice for the product even if he had great skin because he doesn't represent the type of person they want to represent their company. It's the same thing with Rhianna, she might have great skin but she is skanky and she tolerates and even laughs off domestic violence...not a role model for women or companies that sell products to them.

Bubbles the Chimp and Harvey Kardashian are dangerously close to jumping the shark if you are taking up space just saying things like Mike is Fat. Normally you have more to add than that level of stuff.
