Ryan Lochte Takes a Dip with Joan Rivers — VIDEO

Ryan Lochte Joan Rivers Fashion PoliceWe’re not entirely sure how a man who spends 98% of his waking hours in a swimsuit is exactly qualified to be the ultimate judge on fashion (but then again, the jury’s still out on Kelly Osbourne‘s credentials), but Ryan Lochte is sure to provide us with some brilliant sound bites when he appears on E!’s Fashion Police on Friday. Put “I love swimming because racing” Lochte in the same room with zinger queen Joan Rivers and you’re guaranteed television magic.

In a fun sneak peek of Friday’s episode, Rivers leads Lochte by the hand to the nearest aqueous location, the fountain outside the Fashion Police set in the E! courtyard. Noticing how at home Lochte immediately felt once he submerged himself in the “pool,” Rivers asked, “Are you peeing?”

A stoic Lochte deadpanned, “I am. I’ve been waiting to this whole time.” For some reason, we almost believe him.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
