Ryan Lochte’s Mystery Woman is Actually His Sister

Now that Ryan Lochte is a big deal (jeah!), everyone wants to know if he’s single. According to his mom, Lochte doesn’t have time for a relationship, so he engages in one night stands (later clarified by Ryan to mean ‘casual dating’).

So when a picture surfaced of the Olympic swimmer with an attractive redhead sitting on his lap, the media and Lochte fans were dying to know who the lucky lady is.

TMZ quickly picked up the story (followed by many other media outlets) and had this to say about the picture:

“But they didn’t leave empty-handed — they piled into a cab with several, very excited females … one of whom sat on Lochte’s lap, placing her fun bags a mere nuzzling distance away from his face.”


The redhead with the ‘fun bags’ (to quote the always-classy TMZ) is Lochte’s sister, Megan. She was sitting on his lap because there was no room in the car. Oh, and the other ‘very excited female’ was his stylist, as confirmed by his rep.

This is what Oscar Wilde was talking about when he said, “When you assume, you make an ass out of U and me.”
