This isn’t Harris’ first stint on the Alphabet network. She starred on the sitcom Notes from the Underbelly and has appeared on Modern Family, in addition to Suits, My Boys and Party Down.
Happy Endings returns Tuesday, Oct.23 at 9/8c.
DNW Dave/Alex back together
The star has been spending some intimate time with rapper boyfriend Kanye West and has been shedding the pounds through it.
Reality star Kim Kardashian has apparently lost 7lb on a “sex diet” with rapper boyfriend Kanye West.
According to sources the star has been spending a lot of “intimate” time with the rapper, which has helped her shed the pounds from her curvy figure.
Talking to the National Enquirer, they said, “We jokingly refer to it as the sex diet. When one of us is having regular sex, that tends to burn calories and kill the appetite. Losing seven pounds in seven days means being a very naughty girl."
It seems though that Kanye isn’t digging his girl’s new figure and much prefers the curvier version.
The insider went on to say, “Kanye loves her curves and has told her repeatedly that she shouldn't get too skinny.
"He's always encouraging her just to be happy and healthy and do things for herself and not give in to peer pressure, which is why he doesn't think she should lose weight.
"Kim was speechless, especially when he told her he missed her love handles.
"Kanye can't understand why she has lost weight when she knows it's not the look he likes. He thinks Kim should be doing everything to please him - not herself."
...lol. this is an excuse for a sex post obviously.
I like it, even though it's just a snippet. It sounds like an old vinyl record but then you get the main melody.
It's been a tough time for the Jackson clan lately, what with numerous inter-family feuds and debate over the validity of Michael Jackson's will. However, Michael Jackson's daughter Paris seems to have anchored herself with a positive focus. The 14-year-old recently created a enormous shrine of images of her late father, which she posted up on her bedroom wall.
Paris displayed her extensive collage on Twitter--containing dozens of photos from all stages of the King of Pop's life, and centered by a dramatic black-and-white portrait directly over her bed's headboard. She noted that it took her three hours to complete.
Apparently, some fans considered Paris's work to be a bit over-the-top, but Michael's adoring only daughter doesn't care what anyone thinks of her work."Someone commented on my pic saying "obsessed much?'" she noted on Twitter. "Yeaa u better believe it...a whole wall of his pics is the LEAST i could do."
Paris drew headlines last month when she angrily confronted her extended clan over the whereabouts of her grandmother and guardian, Katherine Jackson. The Jackson matriarch--who along with Paris and her siblings is the named beneficiary of Michael Jackson's estate--temporarily lost custody of Paris and her brothers when she was reported missing last month, only to be discovered that she was actually vacationing at an Arizona spa.
With her grandmother's wellbeing assured and custody restored, Paris seemed to return to a more peaceful state of mind, tweeting cute photos of herself in rock T-shirts, as well as another creative project--homemade American flag-decorated cupcakes, just in time for the Olympics.
I think the pic wall is fine but hope she doesn't get in over her head with the media/public. She's only like 14 and internet fame can be a monster. [Gaga pun unintended]
Ryan Lochte: I Didn't Bang Around At the Olympics
Ryan Lochte insists ... he did NOT go on a lady-banging bender inside the athletes' village in London last week -- telling TMZ Live, he barely had enough time to sleep ... let alone sample the local fare (sexually).
FYI -- the athletes' village at the Olympics has famously become a hot bed for late night liaisons among medal contenders -- i.e. the athletes are going at it like rabbits when they're not competing.
But Lochte tells us, he kept his snake in the cage -- claiming, "All I really saw was the dining hall, the swimming pool, and basically my bed. So I wasn’t able to get around the village."
What a waste.
1. Well done Nathan, Matt, and Cullen for taking the time to tutor Reezy in how to speak properly to the public.
2. Reezy clearly only had time for his roomates Matt, Cullen, Conor, Nathan and obv. his bf Michael. I wonder if Mama Phelps approves.
forreal tho i think he took a crash course in media training cuz he's been doing well in interviews this week.
Between caring for her new baby Luca, cooking for hubby Mike Comrie, and maintaining a vigorous exercise program, actress Hilary Duff still makes time to help charities like Johnson’s Baby CARES.
HILARY’S GROWING FAMILY
Find out what the new mom told us about this wonderful program and her new role as a parent, in SheKnows Girl Crush of the Month.
Former teen queen Hilary Duff is all grown up.
After years of charming audiences as Lizzy McGuire on the Disney Channel and starring in youthful films like A Cinderella Story, the 24-year-old Duff has officially shed her teenybopper persona and entered womanhood.
Duff and hockey player Mike Comrie tied the knot in 2010 and welcomed their first child together in March, son Luca Cruz.
On the day we caught up with Duff, she was just getting used to being away from her little one and trying to adjust to missing her new baby.
"This is my first day out away from Luca for this amount of time," Duff laments.
She told us that it’s been a nice break being out of the spotlight, and she has really gotten used to being a homebody.
"I’ve been going, going, going since I was 10 years old. So it’s a little bit of a change. But I got used to being at home, and I’m just enjoying it. "
"I’ve been going, going, going since I was 10 years old," says Duff. "So it’s a little bit of a change. But I got used to being at home and I’m just enjoying it. I’m doing more domestic things around the house since I’m not throwing myself back into work."
One of her new housewife duties include serving as the family chef.
"I am the main cook," Duff tells us. "Mike is not that great in the kitchen and I think he established that when he messed up a box of macaroni and cheese once. I’m still convinced he did that on purpose so I don’t ask him any more."
When she’s not taking care of her two main men, Hilary likes to work out.
"I try to get an hour at the gym or I’ll go on walks and take Luca for walks," she told us. "I do a bit of spinning or Pilates."
Despite her rigorous exercise schedule (she also trains with celebrity fitness guru Harley Pasternak), Duff has still caught flack from critics for not losing the baby weight fast enough.
"People think you should look the same as before you had the baby instantly," says Duff. "It is a bit of a challenge."
Well, we think she looks fabulous! And luckily, she brushes off the criticism, focusing on the important things in life.
"We’re taking care of this baby, and he’s thriving and we’re figuring this out," Duff tells us. "[I] feel strong and feel so much love. It’s really special."
Duff says she and Comrie aren’t falling into the classic trap that many couples struggle with after a baby: forgetting to make romance a priority.
"We make an effort to have a date night once a week," says Duff. "I think it makes you a better mom to leave for an hour a day to have that with your husband and go out and have a glass of wine."
"We make an effort to have a date night once a week. I think it makes you a better mom to leave for an hour a day to have that with your husband ..."
Comrie makes an effort to keep things fresh as well, Hilary says.
"Mike is really good at surprising me with vacations, so I’m a very lucky girl," she says. "We just went to a Coldplay concert, which was a lot of fun. We try to do fun things and not just go out to dinner every night."
Though she doesn’t have a timetable for her next project, Duff says she's getting back into music and will eventually release a new album.
"Toward the end of my pregnancy, I started working on a record and getting back into the studio. There is no pressure with when I will release an album, but I’m excited about that. I want to work again. I think I need that balance in my life."
And even with all this, Duff is still dedicated to helping other moms. As an ambassador for Johnson’s Baby CARES, she helped package hundreds of care kits to send to families during times of need.
"It helps so many moms," says Duff. "I’m a new mom and I’m putting myself in their situation in a time of need or disaster, and I would want this help. I’m happy to be a part of this."
Just another reason to crush on this inspirational woman!
Keep in mind this interview was taken place in May.
High School Moms will explore life at Denver's Florence Crittenton High School, following teenagers as they balance homework and pregnancy. The series will launch Aug. 12 at 8 p.m. on TLC.
The Denver high school features nursing facilities and an on-site day care center in a bid to boost the national teen mom graduation rate from 40 percent.
From struggling with the decision to drop out because the daycare bills are past due to getting ready for the school’s first prom, HIGH SCHOOL MOMS gives an unfiltered look at what it’s like to be a teen mother in high school.
Criminal Minds executive producer Erica Messer wants to assure you that Jeanne Tripplehorn's Alex Blake will not stir up trouble in the BAU.
Tripplehorn will make her debut on the Season 8 premiere, filling the void left by Paget Brewster's Emily Prentiss, who exited in the season finale. And though Messer previously described Alex as a "threat" to the team, she clarifies that it's merely a case of a newbie joining a tightknit group.
"Anytime there's a very close coworker environment, as we have here, it's hard," Messer tells TVGuide.com. "There's just a natural hesitation to accept, but in that friendly way. She certainly doesn't have an ulterior motive or anything."
1. Double duty: Alex is also a linguistics professor at Georgetown, where Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) has guest-lectured, but don't think she's an FBI noob. "She's been in the Bureau since she was 24, so it's all she's ever known," Messer says. "She's never left; she does both. She's like agent by day, professor whenever she can. Hotch [Thomas Gibson] and Rossi [Joe Mantegna] have known her from her career in the Bureau." Also look for a few scenes of Alex teaching in future episodes.
2. A history of backstabbing: Reid isn't the only one with whom Alex has a past. She also goes way back with Strauss (Jayne Atkinson), who let Alex take the fall in a case once - and she hasn't gotten over it yet. "There are some professional backstabbing issues with Strauss," Messer says. "Blake talks to Strauss in a way no one else does. She's a woman, they've got a history clearly, and there's no patience for it. It's like, 'I've got a plane to catch, so are we done?' Someone's gonna put Strauss in her place and it's gonna be Alex. She's got a different voice and I think you guys will see it right away. She's very grounded and she's no bullsh--."
3. One big happy family? The season will open with Alex already on the team, and with Morgan (Shemar Moore) and Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) meeting her for the first time when they return from a temporary assignment in London. And they don't exactly get off on the best foot. "[Alex] and Morgan, clearly do things differently, and they discuss it that episode," Messer says. "Garcia is just like, 'Who is this new person?'" But there won't be any drawn-out intra-team drama. "They work through everything. By the end of that episode, they have mended any fences. Garcia says, 'Can we start over?' We just wanna tell our story with the heroes that we know and trust. They welcome somebody new into their team, and we hope the audience will too."
4. Long-distance love, Part 1: Alex has been in a long-distance relationship for a while, and her significant other may eventually pop up. "They have a Skype relationship right now," Messer says. "He's with Doctors Without Borders, so this has always been their life."
5. Long-distance love, Part 2: Speaking of long-distance relationships, Hotch will embark on one when Beth (Bellamy Young), who is now a regular on Scandal, returns to explain her future absence. "They're not breaking up," Messer says. "He's not a serial dater, so we didn't want to introduce some new love and have them break up so soon. ... It's gonna be long-distance, so he and Alex have something in common."
6. Other matters of the heart: As previously reported, Reid will at long last get a girlfriend, whom he meets over their mutual love of an author. Gubler is "dubious" about Reid dating, but Messer thinks the awkward genius will learn to navigate the troublesome waters. "It's gonna be a very interesting relationship," she says. "It'll be very dramatic and I think fans will be caught off-guard with what we do." Garcia and Kevin (Nicholas Brendon) will also have some ups and downs, but Messer says they'll probably reunite by the end of the season. As for newlyweds JJ (A.J. Cook) and Will (Josh Stewart), home life is going to be kosher after Season 7's life-threatening finale.
7. Season-long unsub: For the first time, the drama will feature a season-long unsub, something producers have wanted to do for a while but had never gotten approval on until now. "The unsub in the premiere sews mouths shut, but by the end of the premiere, he's no more. And a couple of episodes later, the team finds out that back in Texas, where we solved that other case, a victim just showed up with her mouth sewn shut," Messer explains. "So then you find out that this guy is replicating crimes we've solved. We're calling him The Replicator, unofficially. We'll probably see him five or six times [throughout the season]."
8. A Prentiss return? Though the show would love to welcome back Brewster any time, Messer doesn't foresee it happening soon. "It would be fantastic, but it's too early to make those decisions. It takes a lot of people to sign off on things like that," she says. But Prentiss is definitely not forgotten in the BAU, as the show will name-drop her whenever it can. "In the premiere, we learn that Morgan and Garcia visited with Prentiss while they were in London," Messer says. "We say, 'Emily sends her love and tea of the month.' Every once in a while, we wanna be like, 'Did you try this one yet?' We'll mention her as often as possible. She's gonna be loved."
Season 8 of Criminal Minds premieres Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c on CBS.
According to IMDb, Sam Claflin is listed to play Finnick Odair. Lionsgate has not officially announced that Claflin got the role.
Claflin is best known for playing Kristen Stewart's childhood sweetheart, William, in "Snow White and the Huntsman." He also played Philip in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."
In July, Zap2it reported that their reliable sources said that the British actor has claimed the role of Finnick Odair. The producer, Nina Jacobson, and Lionsgate have signed off on Claflin's order, and now he just has to accept the role.
Finnick is a crucial role in the upcoming movie. He becomes a key player in Katniss' life, especially after he saves Peeta from drowning in the Quarter Quell. He's muscular, tan and blonde-haired, and he helps the rebellion by appearing in rebel propos and revealing political secrets of the Capitol.

Lindsay Lohan’s already landed the next role in her acting comeback: starring in an upcoming Lady Gaga music video off the singer’s anticipated album, “ARTPOP,” sources say.
Gaga and Lohan have become fast friends and made headlines by hanging out at the Chateau Marmont last month. Gaga posted pics of their encounter — she in a tiara and pearls while Lohan covered her mouth with a French-manicured hand — on her Web site Little Monsters. But, it seems, the collaboration is going a step further.
“Lady Gaga and Lindsay caused a stir last month when they had their ‘sleepover’ at the Chateau [Marmont],” a Hollywood insider told us, adding, “and now it turns out that Lindsay will be starring in Gaga’s new video from her upcoming album.”
Lohan’s been attempting a comeback with roles in the Lifetime movie “Liz & Dick” and in Bret Easton Ellis’ “The Canyons,” opposite male porn star James Deen.
But the potential Gaga gig represents a more mainstream opportunity. “Due to Gaga’s superstar status, this would be Lindsay’s biggest [role] by far in many, many years,” a source said.
But others wonder why Gaga’s involving Lohan. “Why this huge artist — who could literally have anyone she wants — chose someone currently at the bottom of the Hollywood food chain remains a mystery,” one observer sniffed.
Gaga recently wrapped an acting role herself in Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete Kills” with Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson. And she’s just starting to let details of “ARTPOP” — which has no release date — trickle. She tweeted the title over the weekend, and teased fans last month by blasting a new song on the streets of New York.
Gaga was spotted Monday having lunch with her family at Philippe. She’d visited hush-hush beau Taylor Kinney in Chicago over the weekend during Lollapalooza, as we reported.
A source close to Gaga said, “Lady Gaga’s not shooting a music video at this time.” Reps for Gaga and LiLo declined comment.
Rupert Murdoch doesn’t care if you’re feeling under the weather.
The billionaire head of News Corp. on Sunday came out against a proposed New York City law that would force some local businesses to grant employees more paid sick time. Murdoch criticized The New York Times on Twitter for a Sunday editorial in favor of the city proposal, which would affect more than 1.2 million workers.
Here are two of the tweets:
Rupert Murdoch @rupertmurdoch
Somebody needs to stand up to NYT which today editorialises strongly for absurd city council actions which will truly hurt small businesses
5 Aug 12 ReplyRetweetFavorite
NYT sounds reasonable, but effects horrible on smallest neighborhoods. Why choose now to make things worse? Everybody has enough pressures.
5 Aug 12 ReplyRetweetFavorite
Murdoch’s sentiment echoes that of City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who has refused to bring the paid sick leave bill to a vote until the economy improves. She's argued that struggling small companies can’t bear the cost of guaranteed paid sick days.
The proposed legislation would require companies with 20 or more workers to give each employee nine paid sick days a year and companies with 5 to 19 workers to offer five sick days.
“With the current state of the economy and so many businesses struggling to stay alive, I do not believe it would be wise to implement this policy, in this way, at this time,” Quinn said in a statement provided to Bloomberg BusinessWeek.
A 2010 report from the Partnership for New York City, an investment fund representing the city’s largest employers, estimated that paid sick leave could cost businesses nearly $800 million annually.
But advocates for the bill say such requirements are badly needed because their absence disproportionately harms women -- especially those in low-wage industries. Female workers are often forced to take time off to care for a sick child. And while white-collar workers typically receive pay for days outside the office, employees in low-wage industries are frequently not paid or fired for their absences.
Proponents of the measure argue that paid sick leave delivers economic benefits in the form of increased worker productivity and fewer workplace injuries. Believing that such benefits outweigh increased compensation costs, some small companies have even started offering unlimited vacation policies.
At least 36 of 50 New York City council members support the proposed bill, The New York Times’ editorial said. San Francisco, Seattle and Washington all have similar legislation, and Connecticut passed a statewide law last year. Rules requiring companies to offer paid sick leave also exist in more than 145 countries, according to one McGill University report.
Already, Murdoch’s comments have drawn the ire of some Twitter users. Actress Susan Sarandon saw a similar backlash last month when she declared via Twitter her support for Quinn, who is running for mayor.
Proponents of the sick leave rules called Sarandon out, prompting her to announce via Twitter that she will urge Quinn to support the legislation. In that tweet, Sarandon cited a 2011 San Francisco study that found six of seven employers reported paid sick leave had no negative effect on profitability.

MovieFIX's Rebekah Burgess-Smith travelled to the outskirts of Toronto to pay a visit to the set of Resident Evil: Retribution. She had an in-depth chat with butt-kicking leading ladies Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez, and director Paul W.S. Anderson.
Wearing a jacket that looks more like a sleeping bag, I'm all rugged up to meet the clever people who rebirthed the zombie genre for this side of the millennium.
Milla, the woman who is the Resident Evil franchise, sums up what it is about the series that keeps her coming back for more.
"I think the fact that it is such a family affair — and a lot of love goes into making the evil happen," she says.
"It has always been that way. From day one, between me and Michelle, everybody, Paul, [producer] Jeremy [Bolt], everyone had played the games, we were all fans of the games."
"We loved what we were doing — we were putting all of our heart and soul into it. That's been the case with every movie. We go into it like 'yeah, we are going to make it better' — that's what it takes to make a great action movie, or else you are just going 'ker-ching, dial this in, get on set, hardly train, get my close-up and get my stunt double to do everything'. We are, like, here for the long haul."
Milla's husband Paul W. S. Anderson has directed all of the RE films, so it's no surprise that the fifth instalment is a labour of love.
"I love making Resident Evil movies. It is everything I loved about movies growing up. You know, it's sexy girls, big action, cool sets — they are fun films to watch and fun films to make," Paul reveals.
"As a fan boy it has everything in there that I like ... well, look at today — two beautiful girls beating the hell out of one another with a submarine in the background."
Ironically it's not snowing outside, but once I entered the sound stage, I was transported to a colder looking world of fake snow and a partly submerged submarine, a door coming out of the ground ... but to where?
"What you see here today is the outside of the Umbrella corporation facility," explains bad-ass action star Michelle Rodriguez.
"We are submerged at this point, so we are in the Arctic somewhere. Russia is recreated inside the facility, deep down under water. Russia is recreated, New York, you got Racoon City, and you got Tokyo, which is really cool."
She is back, reprising her role of Rain Ocampo from the first film, even though the character was killed at the end of that movie.
"Today my character is trying to stop them from exiting the facility. My goal is to kill Alice. It doesn't quite work that way, but that's my goal," she reveals.
Rain is such a fan favourite, but how does she rise from the dead?
"It's interesting. You know, talking about the great concept of cloning, it gives us the opportunity to bring a couple of great characters back from the dead," Michelle says.
"I was surprised when I got the phone call. I sat down and had lunch with them and he [Paul] unveiled it all."
Many other characters from the original game have been brought into Resident Evil Retribution. They have introduced some of the biggest names from the game into the movie franchise for the first time, including Leon Kennedy and Ada Wong, who help Alice fight Umbrella.
"They meet up with Albert Wesker at the end of the film who was the villain at the end of the last film, he is back played by the same actor, Shawn Roberts, but then there is an interesting twist," producer Jeremy Bolt reveals.
"There is a general idea in Resident Evil that nobody is who you think they are. Cloning plays an important part in this film and duality of purpose as well."
Not only did we learn about the new characters but there is a whole host of bigger, badder, faster creatures.
"We're leaning quite heavily on the Resident Evil 4 and 5 games, so the big jump forward for us is creatures that were in Resident Evil: Afterlife, the Las Plagas parasite which kind of gives the humans it infects some characteristics of the undead," Paul explains.
"So they have the hunger for flesh, and they want to eat you but they also maintain some intelligence and motor skills, which means they can move fast, shoot machine guns and ride motorbikes. That's one of the stand-out sequences, I think, in this movie."
As we walked through the production offices to the lunch room, there are signs reminding everyone that Milla and Paul's complimentary espresso coffee cart is coming around tomorrow. They got me a skinny latte — anyone that has ever visited a set normally gets the standard-issue disintegrated 43 beans from a tin (and for a Melbourne girl, this means serious love). No wonder the mood on set is really "up" despite nearing the end of the long shoot.
The general feeling of camaraderie is reinforced when the producers, along with Milla, walk into the crew lunch area handing out 3D glasses. We're getting the first look at the trailer together.
Boris Kodjoe, who reprises his role as ex-basketball pro Luther, echoes the "family" sentiment.
"There are no egos, and Milla is such an amazing person, she is an ultimate professional. She makes sure that everyone is okay and comfortable and gives 100 percent every day. It motivates you to give your best as well," Boris says.
"Paul is like a kid in a candy store, he loves what he does and that translates down to everybody else. The atmosphere is always great."
Apart from the on-set family love-in, the RE5 team comes together to tell a story with real issues and relevant parallels to evil in our world.
"The Umbrella Corporation is a mirror of a lot of what is happening in the world today with the fallen economy, deregulation in America with banks and medicine," Milla reveals. "Of course there is a lot of basis in reality."
"But at the end of the day, we want people to have a good time. It's not a political movie, we are not trying to in any way be political, it just happens to be that coincidentally there are a lot of corporations that are not very nice, and the people pay the price for it."
Producer Jeremy Bolt explains exactly why we need another RE movie.
"We are back because Alice has not yet beaten the Umbrella Corporation and she needs to, to save humanity. We are back because the last film did $300 million world-wide which was the largest of the franchise, and a huge increase from the previous box office," he says.
"And we are in 3D because Paul is passionate about 3D and she shot his last film The Three Musketeers in 3D and he would like to never have to work in 2D again if it was possible". Fair enough!
Paul has a few final words for the many fans, including myself, whose hearts break knowing there is an end in sight to the franchise.
"This is the beginning of the end," Paul explains. "I would like to round out the franchise and make a final, final film, and I think this movie in my mind is very much the beginning of the end. It sets up everything for the final film where everything is over."
For you to witness the beginning of the end to this classic zombie sci-fi franchise, Resident Evil Retribution hits cinemas September 13. (OP note, this article is AUS., so this is the AUS. release date. It's the 14th in the States.)

Yes, these movies are terrible; yes, The Excutioner is a Pyramid Head ripoff (in both the games and the movies), but you know my ass is still going to be in the theater opening night if only for this GQMF right here:
BRAD Pitt has reportedly bought fiancee Angelina Jolie one of the world's most expensive watches.
The $370, 000 (£250,000) timepiece is a Patek Philippe Minute Repeater which normally sees customers waiting two years to get their hands on one.
But Britain’s The Sun newspaper reports that the Fight Club star bought the expensive item as an early wedding present.
The gold watch has a mother of pearl dial and takes two months to put together with each one being checked over by a member of the Stern family, who own the company, at their headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
"Brad decided to buy one of the most amazing watches after meeting the Stern family at a watch fair in Basel," a source told the publication.
"He wanted to buy Ange a unique gift that very few people own which is like a piece of art - and the highly sophisticated watch is just that.
"It chimes like Big Ben and is constructed by hand. He went to Geneva to pick it up and it’s believed he’ll present it to Ange as a pre-wedding gift."
The couple got engaged in April and are parents to six children.
"Two different reality show concepts have been offered and one additional is being discussed," the swimmer's agent Erika Wright tells THR.
First there was the diamond American-flag grill Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte tried to wear on the podium while collecting a gold medal. Then came his admission that he pees in the pool and his mother's suggestion that the busy 28-year-old only has time for one-night stands.
Despite the sometimes-negative publicity -- the blog Jezebel dubbed him "America's sexiest douchebag" -- sports-business experts say Lochte's antics shouldn't hurt his ability to cash in on his five London medals. If anything, they might help.
"I don't think Ryan was a buttoned-up guy to begin with," says Evan Morgenstein, CEO of PMG Sports, which represents past Olympians like Janet Evans as well as Tyler Clary, a swimmer who won a gold medal in London in the 200-meter backstroke. "A tight-ass Madison Avenue ad agency who has a client that is risk-averse -- they weren't going to work with him anyway."
Lochte, a Rochester, N.Y., native, has nine big endorsement deals with the likes of Speedo, Gatorade, Ralph Lauren and Gillette, which presented him with a blinged-out razor to match his grill at a press event Aug. 5. And Fortune has estimated his 2012 endorsement earnings at $2.3 million.
Perhaps not surprising, Lochte's sports agent, Erika Wright, tells THR that the swimmer has received offers to create a fashion line and has been asked by Will Ferrell to make a FunnyOrDie video, and multiple TV offers are on the table.
"I cannot tell you the exact shows, but two different reality show concepts have been offered and one additional is being discussed," Wright writes in an e-mail, adding that American talk shows are angling to book Lochte as a guest when he returns to the states.
Lochte also told reporters in London that he would be open to appearing on Dancing with the Stars, even suggesting that he and U.S. swimming teammate Michael Phelps square off on the ABC competition. And in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, Lochte said that he plans to move to Los Angeles after the Olympics.
Wright adds that Lochte is receiving offers for endorsement deals "daily" and has "little room for adding more" sponsors. "He has no issues whatsoever with regard to endorsements ... I can say things have been quite busy for team Lochte, heating up fast and furious since the Olympics."
Indeed, Lochte has made good use of his time in London, partying at celebrity-friendly Chinawhite night club, among others. Wright says that the FunnyOrDie video that Lochte has been asked to make would be filmed in London before he returns home.
Jesse Ryback of consultancy Premier Partnerships notes that as long as Lochte doesn't run afoul of the law or find himself in more serious controversies, the swimmer should continue to attract attention from prospective endorsers and sponsors. "He has this Kanye West-like persona in terms of attention," says Ryback. "That makes him even more memorable."
Lochte also is represented by manager Shawn Zenga but does not have a Hollywood agent.
