The controversial Miss California/Miss USA 2009 first runner-up, Carrie Prejean, is dating record Olympic medalist Michael Phelps. Carrieâ€™s grandmother, Jeanette Coppolla, has confirmed Carrie is â€œcasuallyâ€ dating and is aware of Michaelâ€™s womanizer reputation.
“Carrie and Michael have been out to baseball games and lunch,â€ Coppolla said. â€œHe always calls her when he is in town and they go out.â€
â€œCarrie knows that he has dated a lot of girls but she enjoys going out with him and isn’t serious about being in a relationship with him,â€ she added. â€œHe’s a nice guy and she likes him.”
The Olympic champion and the beauty queen: I think itâ€™s a match made in heaven. Miss Carrie made her point about gay marriage at Sundayâ€™s Miss USA pageant, we wonder whatâ€™s her opinion about smoking weed. A couple of months ago, Michael were involved in a major scandal when he was caught with a bong (photos) – just like Heidi Montag!
In a recent interview with Miss USAâ€™s host Billy Bush, Carrie dodged the question about Michael saying: â€œHe is a great man. We can talk about that a different day.â€
