DITCHING Hot GF to

Michael Phelps
told Bob Costas he wanted to travel the world after retiring from swimming ... and now TMZ has learned that Stop #1 is gonna be AWESOME ... a boys trip to one of the most expensive tropical islands in the world!!

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Phelps is planning to visit the Maldives with several close male friends in the near future -- a notoriously expensive island destination for the rich and famous ... so obviously, it's amazing.

But here's the rub -- we're told one person was NOT invited ... Michael's hot GF Megan Rossee.

According to sources, Michael wanted to do a boys' trip after his record-setting Olympic Games in London -- so he's going without the ol' ball and chain.

(FYI -- the Maldives is an archipelago located in the Indian Ocean, and is Asia's SMALLEST country. Sitting at just 4'11" above sea level, it's also the world's LOWEST country. The more you know.)

But Phelps hasn't completely forgotten about his one and only -- we're told Michael promised to make it up to Megan by taking her on a separate trip ... just the two of 'em ... anywhere in the world.

Not a bad consolation prize.

He's probably so tired of the VIP hostess being so damn fake he wants to spend some time with his buds who have to be more honest and far more fun that that "hostess/model/aspiring actor" I hope he is using her, because she sure is using him.

Michael Phelps, hang out with your family and friends. All the hype is very short lived.

Big deal. The man wants to get away with friends. That doesn't make him gay or straight moron Hervey. It just makes him a guy who hanging with friends!

Obviously she is using him as a TOOL. No one with genuine feelings for someone would post a personal message on twitter. I laughed when I saw that. She needs to go back to Camp Gash so MP can find someone on his level.

Obviously she is using him as a TOOL. No one with genuine feelings for someone would post a personal message on twitter & ALL of her photo's in the press. I laughed when I saw that. She needs to go back to Camp Gash so MP can find someone on his level. Being beautiful is inside and out.

She does not look very wholesome. Doubt he will put a ring on it. Her extensions look very, very fake.

SO gay. Thats a romantic getaway kind of place. Its like going to Bora-Bora with your "bros".

And lucky her, she's going to get sloppy seconds after his bro-orgy fest! Nasty. Closet cases are the worst.

She's a generic dime-a-dozen blonde like a zillion others out there like her. There is nothing unique, or memorable about her. The benefits of dating Barbies is that you can dress them up, bend them and do anything you want to them. When you tire of one, there is another just like her to take her place.

BRAD, etc.!!! You guys are SUCH douchebags for defending this Porta-Potty! It's now worldwide that she is one, so give it up. Absolutely NO ONE is jealous of her poop-stained face! Seems odd to go to such a remote, romantic place with a bunch of dudes. He's either gay or doin' the poon-cruise! (And the other Porta-Potties in the private jet photo from yesterday weren't that hot! Really HOT chicks won't let rich men poop 'n pee on them. They don't HAVE to!)
